People often ask: Does hypnosis online work?

Hypnotherapy can be conducted just as effectively, and possibly more so, online, than face to face. These days there are many reliable video communication platforms, and these have made the world a much smaller place. Let’s face it, having to take time out of your usual routine to drive across town to attend any sort of appointment, can be a pain. Finding somewhere quiet and making yourself comfortable in your own space at home is potentially much more convenient, and is certainly a more effective use of your time.

Chances are you are going to be able to relax and focus much more quickly at home, than you might after driving through traffic.

This is not a new idea

Did you know that hypnotherapy session have been conducted successfully online for a number of years?

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many of us to use  video platforms to keep in touch with our family and friends. This method of communication is going to be increasingly popular in future, as the world wakes up to the efficiency of having a face to face conversation online with someone, without having to haul yourself from one place to another, fighting the traffic, polluting the environment and battling against the clock.

How does hypnosis online work?

Once you have some understanding of how hypnosis works, you will realise that it is not necessary for me to physically be in the room with you. So long as you are able to settle yourself somewhere that is comfortable, safe and quiet, and are able to hear my voice clearly with minimal distractions, then it is possible and practical for you to be anywhere in the world when we have our sessions together. After all, so long as your mind is ‘in the room’,  and you can hear and follow some easy instructions, then that’s all we need to make progress.

The changes happen in the way that your mind processes and perceives the world . The misconception that any hypnotist needs to be in the room, so that he can ‘wield his power’ is simply not how hypnosis works – no matter how much Hollywood movies would try to have you believe!

And when you think about it, the issue you want to address is likely to be something that manifests itself in your space, rather than mine, for example, if you wanted to stop smoking, or learn to resist snacking between meals. It makes sense to resolve the issue and then test the solution in your usual environment.

It is really easy!

As you are looking at this website, I believe you are tech savvy enough to join me online on one of the reliable and easy-to-use video conference platforms.

I would recommend using Zoom. This works on a computer or any mobile device with Internet connection. Once we have scheduled the call I will send you an email confirming the time. On that email would be a link (a unique Internet address) and all you will need to do is click on the link to join the meeting.

If you are unfamiliar with Zoom, there are many helpful videos on YouTube that could give you some guidance  – here’s one that you may find helpful.

There is of course Skype which is good or if you have an Apple device such as an IPhone or IPad then there is also FaceTime.
