Frequently Asked Questions

Please find below quetions with answer for respective category about mind-wellness therapy etc.

  • General

  • What does the therapy process involve?

    The therapy process tailored to the specific needs of the client. It would typically involve one-one sessions with a client providing a safe environment to explore areas of concerns and developing strategies to address them.

    For counselling sessions this would take the form of regular talk therapy. Whereas for hypnotherapy a client is in a state of hypnosis which would enable them to work on patterns of thought and emotions and resolve more acute problems and symptoms.

    There may be group or couple sessions if Family Therapy work is being done.

  • What form of therapy will work best for me?

    The answer to this is dependent on two aspects. The first aspect is your preference. At Mind Wellness we believe in therapy as a collaborative process. Your therapist will be able to recommend therapy options however, your preferred approach is what will work best for you.

    The second aspect is the nature of your problem. There are cases where one therapy option may be more suitable than another for specific issues. In this case your therapist will advise you on the options available to you and you will work with your therapist on what would suit your needs.

  • How many sessions does it take ?

    The number of sessions is dependent on the nature of the problem as well as the therapeutic approach being used.

    For the hypnotherapy process it would be between 4 to 6 sessions.

    With counselling depending on the complexity of the problem and the desired objectives of a client it can take anywhere between 5 to 12 sessions. The therapist would be able to provide you with more information based on your specific situation during a consult.

  • Hypnotherapy

  • Can a hypnotherapist make me do something against my will?

    Even when a person is in a state of hypnosis their basic protective mechanisms are always active. A hypnotherapist cannot make you accept a suggestion or do something that would cause you any harm or something that you are not fundamentally aligned to doing.

    If in a state of hypnosis for instance if a therapist asked you hit yourself or gave you any suggestion you fundamentally are not inclined to, you will simply emerge from that state in full consciousness.

    This is also a reason it is important for clients to have at least some degree of willingness to address their given issue, like any other form of therapy or it will be ineffective.

  • How does Hypnotherapy Work?

    Hypnotherapy involves the use of hypnosis to address specific patterns of thought, emotions and behaviours to resolve a client’s problem. Hypnotherapy involves direct suggestions, processing of emotions andresolving any internal conflicts.

    The goal of hypnotherapy is to shift a client’s internal perspectives in relation to a specific problem so that it can be resolved in a manner that is aligned with a client. In therapy the outcomes of the process are dependent on the client and hypnotherapy is no different.

  • Can I get stuck in hypnosis?

    Hypnosis is a natural state of mind that occurs similar to sleep and waking consciousness. As such if a person is left alone in a state of hypnosis they will either emerge on their own or drift off into a nap from which they can easily be awakened.

  • Is hypnosis safe?

    Hypnosis is a natural state of mind like sleeping and being awake. It is a state you enter naturally at least 10 to 15 times a day. It is simply put a state of focused attention.

    Some examples of this are while watching TV you are so focused on a show that you don’t hear someone calling out to you, or you are so engrossed in driving that you miss an exit, or when you are so focused on finding your phone or keys that you don’t realise it’s right there in front of you.

    We are constantly drifting in and out of trance state daily. In therapy the only difference is, this state is prolonged to allow positive suggestions and therapeutic change to take place. Explore the video on your right to find out more.
