FAQs

IS HYPNOSIS SAFE?
Yes, absolutely. It is utilising a perfectly natural function of the sub-conscious mind to bring about desired change and is a state of co-operation.

WHAT IS HYPNOSIS?
A precise definition is difficult to obtain but it is a SELF induced state of relaxation and heightened suggestibility during which the deeper parts of the subconscious mind become more accessible.

HOW IS IT DONE?
To induce hypnosis the therapist uses his voice to talk you into deep relaxation. No swinging watches or flashing lights are necessary!

HOW WILL I FEEL?
You will usually feel relaxed and drowsy during hypnosis and after your session you will feel thoroughly refreshed.

SHALL I BE AWARE OF WHAT IS GOING ON?
Usually you are completely aware of what is happening while you are in the light hypnosis used in therapy. Unless you give yourself a suggestion to the contrary, and accept it, you can speak and, if you want to, open your eyes at any stage.

SHALL I FEEL DROWSY AFTER?
No, you will feel refreshed.

WHAT IF I RESIST?
It’s your mind – you are in complete control. As you are using hypnosis for self help you presumably will co-operate as much as possible. A “strong will” is excellent, you can use it to help yourself.

IS IT SLEEP?
No, hypnosis is NOT sleep.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
Yes, but only beneficial ones, like the reduction of stress and anxiety and removal of tension; nothing that would be liable to impair your abilities. Remember, Hypnosis is a perfectly safe, natural state.

COULD I GET STUCK IN HYPNOSIS?
No, this simply cannot happen as the next stage down in this process of relaxation is sleep.

SHALL I TELL MY DOCTOR?

Yes, let your Doctor know that you are considering Hypnotherapy. Most local G.P.’s have some knowledge of Hypnosis and many know of Mr Clare. Your Doctor has probably had a lot of feed back already and may be one of those who recommends Den Clare, who has been in practice on the Isle of Wight since 1980.

IS IT CONFIDENTIAL?

YES – absolutely!

    Hi Gemma
    Smoking, as you know, is a dangerous killer, and it is a good choice at any time, to stop!!
    This involves two sessions, the first to cut down to about half the number that you are currently smoking after discussing in detail your reasons for doing so. I will explain exactly what Hypnosis is and how it works and you will enter this very pleasant condition, akin to meditation and deep relaxation, as I feed back your reasons to your subconscious mind.
    I take great care in understanding your personal reasons as your subconscious will absorb these more easily if they are authentically yours!
    You have a CD to take away to reinforce what takes place in the first session, and you return in about a week for the final stopping time, keeping the CD.
    Positive, refreshed and enthusiastic you go on your way…. a NON smoker!
    The cost is £70 for each session and £10 for the CD.
    If at any time in the future you feel tempted to smoke, and haven’t had a cigarette, call me, come in for a top up reinforcement, no charge, and stay free from smoking.
    I want this to happen for your health and my reputation, so important to us both.
    Together we will overcome.
    Warm wishes
    Den 🙂
