What is Hypnotherapy ?

Hypnotherapy or Hypnosis Therapy refers to a state or condition in which a person becomes highly responsive to suggestions. It is a treatment option that may help heal and treat different conditions.

During hypnosis therapy, we guide our clients into a deep state of relaxation (sometimes described as a trance-like state).

As a leading provider of hypnotherapy in Toronto we will make suggestions which are collaboratively designed to help you become more open to change or improvement in your life, namely in your subconscious mind. Trance-like experiences aren’t all that uncommon. If you’ve ever zoned out while watching a movie or daydreaming, you’ve been in a similar trance-like state. We offer a treatment option that may help heal and treat different conditions.

Common Misconceptions Surrounding Hypnosis

⏱️ Hypnotherapy Involves Swaying Pocket Watches

True hypnosis or hypnotherapy doesn’t involve swaying pocket watches, and it isn’t practiced on stage as part of an entertainment act. Studies have found that hypnosis is 93% effective within 6 sessions. We have found 4 sessions to be incredibly effective in general.

Based on our experience guiding our clients through hypnosis, they have found it to be very helpful in healing a variety of issues and really almost any mental or emotional issue can be addressed with hypnosis.

Hypnotherapy Involves Loss of Consciousness

This is probably the most common misconception surrounding hypnosis therapy. Many believe that people who are hypnotized are unconscious. This misunderstanding can be attributed directly to stage hypnosis, and the way hypnosis has been portrayed in films and on TV. 

In reality, the client under hypnosis will be even more focused and aware than they normally are.

Hypnotherapy Makes you Reveal Secrets

Some also believe that while under hypnosis you can be forced to reveal secrets about themselves and others. However, as a client is aware of everything while being hypnotized, this surely could not happen. People can talk if necessary and can even fib during hypnosis just as easily.
