Fact: Hypnosis is often misrepresented as a state of unconsciousness. A trance in which the person is asleep and unaware of what is happening.

On the contrary, it is a state of focused attention and a heightened state of awareness. Accompanied by an increased insight into your inner processes.

Your hypnotherapy session will be an active process where you are required to speak and respond to your hypnotherapist’s requests. If the word sleep is mentioned it simply means, relax deeply with eyes closed as if you were asleep.

If you fall asleep, you’ll miss the whole thing. You’ll also remember the things that are important and forget the things that aren’t. Just like after having a conversation with someone.
