- Frequently Asked Questions -
What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis allows you to create changes
in the subconscious mind, or in other words: reprogramming. Hypnosis
is actually a very normal and natural state of being, in which we
daydream or do things in a natural flow. Our mind is then just a
little less in the foreground. Hypnosis 'tunes in' to this natural
state of consciousness, in which things can be touched and changed.
So that old beliefs that no longer work for you, can be replaced by
ideas, thoughts and feelings with a positive impact on your life.
What does hypnosis feel like?
It is different for everyone, but you
can imagine it as a massage for the mind. It is a wonderfully relaxed
state, where you remain conscious and are not 'gone'. Instead,
you are much more present during hypnosis, with all senses
perceiving more keenly.
Can I lose control through hypnosis?
No, hypnosis actually gives you more
control over your life (and encourages you to get out of the hypnosis
that no longer works for you.... kind of like a reverse Matrix,
in other words ;-))!
Can I get stuck in hypnosis?
No, you always come out of it by
yourself and return to your normal state of consciousness after a
while. It sometimes happens that someone does not come out of
hypnosis when the hypnotist tells them to; this only happens because
the hypnosis feels so wonderful and they want to stay in it much
longer. But even then, you always come out of it eventually.
Can hypnosis make me do things I don't
want to do?
No, that is impossible. Hypnosis makes
you do only what you would normally do. If you would definitely not
do something normally, you will not do it in or after hypnosis. Your subconscious arranges everything in the best possible way for you.
Can you improve anything with hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a tool for solving problems
quickly and effectively, but it is not a panacea. What is important
is your desire to change unwanted behavior and your ability to open
up to the suggestions you receive during hypnosis.
What is the difference between
meditation and hypnosis?
Both meditation and hypnosis are aimed
at bringing rational thinking to a standstill and being completely in
the here and now. This produces a deep calm and relaxation, with all
its positive effects. Whereas with meditation you need a lot of
practice and discipline to get into that deep trance, with hypnosis
this happens much faster and easier. Hypnosis has an immediate effect
by lowering your stress levels, massaging your brain and making you
feel more comfortable in yourself. Meditation gets much more charge through hypnosis and in hypnosis you can apply a piece of change work.
Can anyone be hypnotized?
Anyone who can concentrate and focus
can experience hypnosis, but receptivity varies from person to
person. You can test your receptivity here:
How do I know if hypnosis is right for
Do you feel curiosity or a Yes?
Follow that feeling! Still in doubt? Do some further research
yourself on this website, or on the Internet and
experience if your enthusiasm grows.
Is this hypnosis the same as a 1-on-1
session with you?
No, the intense connection and magic
of a 1-on-1 session are different than listening to a hypnosis audio
in your own company. During a session, I respond spontaneously and
directly to what is occurring here and now, so that you are touched
in the way that is needed in that moment. The hypnosis audio does
make a great addition and is a tool to empower your transformation,
especially when combined with other inspirations, 1-on-1 coaching
and/or the T-learning.
What is your background in hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a wonderful way of connecting that I have naturally started to apply in my sessions. It was so powerful that I became fascinated with it and discovered it was hypnosis. I went into it further and in December 2022 I followed the Hypnosis Certification Training at the UNLP in Amsterdam.
