Should I listen to my hypnosis MP3 or CD when I go to bed?
Yes, this is a great idea, and going to sleep after listening to one of our hypnosis sessions is ideal because you will feel very relaxed after listening and it will be effortless to drift off to sleep. With this in mind, some of the albums have separate daytime and bedtime tracks. These are in some cases the same session in every detail except for the brief introduction and different ending so you can be woken up or left to sleep to the sound of the music.
What is “Lite-Speed” hypnosis?
Some of my CDs now have three tracks, daytime, bedtime and Lite-Speed
hypnosis. Lite-speed hypnosis is designed with two purposes in mind;
just as with people who regularly meditate, many
How long does it take for hypnotherapy to work?

and issues may be going on in your life at the time,
Can anyone be hypnotised?
Virtually anyone can be hypnotised as long as they are willing. It is not possible to hypnotise anyone against their will.
Can you get “stuck” in hypnosis?
No, you cannot get stuck in hypnosis. Hypnosis is a state of relaxation.
Why can’t I just listen to the hypnosis once and get the result I want?
Some people do and will get the change they desire after just one
listen. For some people, the results come quickly, but even then it is
advisable to keep listening on a regular basis because the
Can I listen to more than one session?
Yes, you may listen to more than one session but don’t do more than two full sessions in a day. You can also use them by interchanging between several.
If I fall asleep while listening to the hypnosis CD, is that a good or a bad thing?
It depends at what point you fell asleep. It may be of course that
you were simply in a deep state of hypnosis. If you hear the count up at
the end, then that is probably the case. However, if you
Should I listen to the hypnosis CD on a loop through the night?
You can do this, but not all the time. Listening to the session on a loop can really power the message into your subconscious, so it is a good way to get changes moving fast. On the negative side though, it can make you tired so do not do this every night. Give your subconscious a break at least three nights per week so you can enjoy deep sleep.
Do I need to use headphones or are speakers okay?
It is entirely down to your preference. You can use either, but headphones are best.
I am finding it difficult to let go. Do you have any relaxation tips?
If you are new to self-hypnosis, it may seem a strange thing to do,
to lie back and allow yourself to be directed to a relaxed state. It may
also be easier said than done. You may feel that you are not as relaxed
as you should be. The fact is, it can take practice for
Are your self-hypnosis CDs suitable for children?
Our recordings are best suited for adults and children over the age of 12. The relaxation part (induction) may be too long for a younger child because children tend to go into hypnosis much more easily and more quickly so do not benefit from a long induction.
Is there a best time of day to listen to my hypnosis cd?
Whatever works best for you. A lot of people listen when they go to bed which is great as long as you don’t immediately fall asleep and miss the whole thing of course. Listening in the morning or the afternoon is perfectly fine too because there is no optimum time other than when you are ready. Find out what works for you.
I can’t visualise, I just don’t see anything. Does this mean that it won’t work for me?
It is not essential that you visualize well, so do not worry if this happens. There are visualiz ation techniques in every hypnosis session and the effect that is being created is also facilitated in literal word form too. In other words, it is designed to account for the fact that the listener cannot necessarily clearly visualise so this should not pose a problem at all. Some people experience hypnosis in a more auditory way, listening to the words and allowing the words to create a descriptive scene rather than a visual one.
Is listening to a self-hypnosis recording as good as seeing a hypnotherapist for real?
Listening to a self-hypnosis recording is actually better in many ways than seeing a hypnotherapist in person. One way is that the suggestions (ie the subject matter of the session) need to be precise, clear and to the point. It can take several meetings with a therapist before they fully understand what you want to get out of it. The recordings are all very precise and cover very specific subject areas so that the content is thorough and effective. Another way in which hypnosis works, is through repetition or compounding. This is when the most important points are repeated and emphasised over and over. The benefit of repeatedly listening to the session is very important because this is how the changes really take effe ct more and more powerfully and become lasting changes. Finally, another way in which your own self-hypnosis session is better than seeing a hypnotherapist in person is that you get used to the hypnosis induction and are able to relax to it more effectively with continued use.
I really need this to work for me how can I get the best result from the hypnosis CD?
The most important factor in your success is down to your commitment
and motivation. So this means listening to the session regularly, daily
if possible. You may be busy and have less free time
How does hypnotherapy differ from Stage Hypnosis?
Many people wonder if hypnotherapy is similar to stage hypnosis. Some hypnotherapists dislike stage hypnotists and it is common to be quite damning of it suggesting it gives hypnotherapy a bad name. Personally I think it makes a good show and is very entertaining, stage hypnotists need a great deal of skill, expertise and showmanship to do what they do.
The psychology of stage hypnosis:
Let’s take a look at the main differences between stage hypnosis and hypnotherapy:
Stage hypnosis works of many levels. There is a buzz of excitement in being at such an event, there is an air of expectation, a curiosity and mystery, all these feelings can be quite ‘infectious’. Additionally, the hypnotist usually has a level of skill and charisma which only helps build this atmosphere of excitement.
Once the entertainment begins the hypnotist is looking to identify the most ‘suggestible’ people in the audience, but he is also looking for willing participants – someone who is in some way wanting to get up on that stage, they may be a natural extrovert, but they could also be less extrovert personalities that in this unique rare environment kind of likes the idea of being given licence to be silly and to entertain. In any case we all know the subjects are given clear instructions so it is fairly easy for them to please the audience.
Once up on the stage the suggestible willing participants find themselves in the limelight and any doubts as to whether to continue usually disappear in the unusual atmosphere with audience waiting and watching, an element of pressure may help to keep the volunteer on the stage.
