Will I lose control under hypnosis?
I have had a couple of clients over the years delay coming to see me because of this exact fear. They were afraid of losing control. Of what, I never understood, but this is another Hollywood myth. You always have control, and you can always hear what's going on as long as you choose to. Hypnosis is nothing but a state of relaxed deep focus. It is a natural state that you enter at least twice a day (while waking up and while falling asleep), and likely much more often than that. Studies have shown that the average person goes into a trance state an average of 7 times a day. If at any time you are in a trance and you wish to be fully awake, you can either shake yourself out of it or you can just count to yourself "1 - 2- 3" and open your eyes.
It is no different then being in a strong daydream.
So set your worries aside about losing control and get the help you need to make the changes in your life you want.
