Frequently Asked Questions

Are you gonna make me cluck like a chicken?

This is THE most frequently asked question. No. We won't make you cluck like a chicken. That is stage hypnosis and has nothing to do with therapeutic hypnosis. We will not intentionally do any thing that would cause you embarrassment.

At Jenks Hypnosis Center, we work closely with our clients to change perceptions, behaviors or attitudes. Clucking like a chicken has no therapeutic value.

How many sessions will it take?

The number of sessions needed depends on the problem, attitude or behavior that a client wants to modify. Non complex problems such as smoking cessation or mild fears and apprehension usually need only one or two sessions.  Deep seated or complex problems with multiple ramifications usually take several sessions.  The number depends largely on the client and the type of problem.

What does hypnosis feel like?

Many people feel that they haven't been hypnotized because they do not understand what hypnosis feels like. Although hypnotists use the word "sleep", because it is a concept easily comprehended by all clients, you are not asleep! Even though you are mentally and physically relaxed, your mind is three to four hundred percent more alert than in your normal state. That is a lifetime away from sleep! You are aware of everything that is going on around you.

Hypnosis is a state of deep concentration. Have you ever concentrated on something so hard, you lost all track of time? That is a hypnotic trance. Have you ever been so engrossed in something you were startled when someone spoke to you? You were self hypnotized. All hypnosis is self hypnosis.

The therapist only acts as a guide. When you follow the instructions of the hypnotherapist and allow things to happen, change is effected.

Are you sure I can be hypnotized? It's been tried before without success.

Almost anyone can be hypnotized. Hypnosis is a 100% consent state by you. You must follow the instructions and accept the suggestions of the hypnotherapist. Remember, you are, at all times, in control. You can stop anything from happening with just the slightest thought. If you don't like the suggestions given to you, you don't accept them. It is really that simple.

The only thing that would prevent a person from entering this wonderful state of deep relaxation is a fear or misconception of what hypnosis is or what can happen in hypnosis. The more common fears and misconceptions are addressed on this page.

Can you make me do something I don't want to do?

Contrary to Hollywood movies, - No. You are in control. You can not be made to do anything in the hypnotic state that you would not do in your normal state. If you would not rob a bank in your normal state, you will not rob a bank in your hypnotic state. You can not be made to do anything against your personal code of conduct and moral values.

Can you make me tell you something I don't want you to know?

No. Since you are in control and your mental state is more alert and enhanced, you will not divulge any information you do not want the hypnotherapist to know. In fact, I would have a better chance of obtaining proprietary information in your normal state than in the hypnotic state. Why? Because your mind is 300% to 400% more alert in the hypnotic state than in your normal state. All your secrets will remain just that - Your secrets.

How does hypnosis work?

Everyone has a "critical factor". The part of the conscious mind that filters and judges information that comes into the brain. If the critical factor doesn't like the information, it simply disregards it. In the induction, the critical factor is bypassed and the hypnotic state is achieved. In hypnosis, the therapist works with the subconscious mind which has only limited critical factor. Because everything you have ever seen, heard or done is stored in your subconscious mind, excellent results can be achieved.

Can I get stuck in hypnosis and not wake up?

Another very common misconception. No. Since you aren't asleep, there is no waking up involved. But you will emerge on your own. Yes, this is semantics but words are our tools and we must use them correctly. Even if you were left in a hypnotic state, you will emerge after a few minutes or you would simply fall into a normal sleep and awaken refreshed. Hypnosis is not and never can be a permanent state.

How do I know this will work?

Nothing in life comes with a guarantee, hypnosis included. Success is dependent upon you and your mental attitude. Any attitude other than "I like it I know it will work" will hinder the success of the session.

"I like it. I hope it works" or "it sounds good, let's give it a try" or "I don't know about this stuff, but it can't be worse than the problem I've got now." None of these mental attitudes will promote a successful session.

Remember, the hypnotist is only the guide. You are in control. However, with this attitude - "I like it; I know it will work" - you and Jenks Hypnosis Center can achieve marvelous results.
