What is Hypnosis? A state of relaxation that the average individual reaches at least a couple of times a day. Light hypnosis is accomplished when one is absorbed in a TV program or daydreaming. The difference in hypnotherapy is that it is "Guided Relaxation" where the ideas expressed (suggestions) generally are remembered more readily. This creates a new awareness or attitude shift about the specific area being worked on. Tammy Carpenter believes that the only component for good results is that the person consciously wants to change.

Can anyone be hypnotized?
Most people can be easily hypnotized, but no one can force you against your will. As one client reported, it is a relaxing enjoyable little mini vacation from a busy work day and it's not scary at all. You will awaken feeling more relaxed, refreshed and ready to face the world.
Can a hypnotist control my behavior or make me do something against my will?
Most people associate hypnosis with stage hypnosis where people publicly act out behavior that is different than their normal behavior. Stage performers will only choose the person in the front row waving their hands enthusiastically to come up on stage. This is because these participants are more than willing to make a fool of themselves. Your values, beliefs and morals remain the same in or out of hypnosis and no one can make you behave in a way that is unacceptable to you without your willingness.
Will I be asleep during hypnosis?
No. The word hypnosis comes from the ancient Greek “hypnos” which means sleep, but this is a misnomer. Hypnosis is generally a very relaxed state of awareness. Some people emerge from a hypnosis session feeling unsure that they were hypnotized, because they remained aware the whole time. Their uncertainty comes from the misconception that hypnosis or trance means being asleep.
Will I reveal personal or secret information under hypnosis?
No. What you decide to share will be no different in hypnosis than out of hypnosis. Your unconscious mind knows what is appropriate for you to share publicly. You are always in control of the process and what you share.
Will I remember everything I experience while in hypnosis?
Most likely, yes. You also always have the option of taping your session, so you can listen to it later in a conscious state. If you are very tired when you are hypnotized, you may fall into a natural sleep, not hypnosis. In that case you will not remember. If you do fall asleep, you'll be gently woken up.
