Frequently Asked Questions

Through hypnosis we are able to induce the hypnotic trance state which can be described as a state of physical relaxation combined with heightened mental concentration. This process is natural and every person experiences has experienced this state before. Common examples of this would be daydreaming where sometimes you drift away with your thoughts. Or reading a good book in focused concentration while totally forgetting the time.

We use this natural state to create learning processes that allow you to create lasting change in your life.

In this pleasent state we can access the resources of our subconscious mind. Access long lost memories, feelings and thoughts.

Trance experiences are something very natural. Maybe you know this feeling of reading a book and suddenly 3 hours of time passed by. Maybe you found yourself in an interesting conversation with a fascinating person and totally forgot everything around you or you watched an intensive movie in the cinema and came back out of the movie with the feeling: Oh, I forgot I was in the cinema.

All those are natural occuring trance states, everyone experiences those, every day. In hypnosis we deliberately use those trance states to create long lasting change for your benefits.

Every time you completely focus on one thing and let go of the rest, you are in trance. This is compareable with a headlamp that is directed to one specific point in a big room. This is not sleep but actually a state of heightened concentration. Examples of everyday trance experiences are:

-Reading a good book
-Talking to a fascinating person
-Being totally absorbed in a movie
-Being in flow

Yes. Every sane person with an IQ over 70 and without any serious brain-damage can be hypnotized. All hypnosis is self hypnosis – I can open the door for you, you have to walk through the door though. A necessary understanding is that we are in this process together. Hypnosis is teamwork! Some people think that they are too much “in their head”. This however is only true for some few people. Especially people that think that it is not possible for them to go into hypnosis are often the ones that are quickly deep in trance – and they enjoy it even more.

There are several factors that make show hypnosis work. One is that for show hypnosis only participants are selected that are highly suggestible. There are several tests done to see which person responds the strongest. Furthermore it is a highly stressful situation, at those times the subconscious mind tends to go the path of least resistance and just do what the hypnotist says. And also: The person going on stage does it on a voluntary basis. Subconsciously this person knows that he said yes to the things that would happen on stage.

Am I still in control of my body and my mind in hypnosis?

Yes. In hypnosis you can move. Sometimes you may be so relaxed that you do not want to move, but it is absolutely possible.

Hypnosis is not sleep. During hypnosis for example you are still able to deliberately move, you are also capable of hearing everything around you and to respond to your environment. All that is neither possible when you get unconscious or fall asleep. Sometimes, when people are very tired, it might happen that you fall asleep during hypnosis. It occurs rarely however. The state of hypnosis is not sleep though, it differs in several ways strongly from the hypnotic state. It is also not unconsciousness. During hypnosis you stay in control and you are very aware about what is happening around you.

You will not tell any secret that you would not want to share. However deep you go in hypnosis, it will always just bring you closer to yourself, but you will never tell anything that you would not want to. You will only tell as much as you want to. No hypnotist on this planet can make you tell him your secrets against your will.

All hypnosis is self-hypnosis. In fact, you will not get your willpower taken away but the connection to yourself will increase. Being able to go into hypnosis shows a deeper connection and trust to yourself, and to be able to let go shows a certain willpower.

This image of losing your will during hypnosis comes from the general picture of hypnosis in shows and in childrens books. This however has little to do with the kind of hypnosis that is used in changework.

Let’s assume you could take away the free will of a person through hypnosis. All a criminal would need to be doing is to learn hypnosis for him to solve all his financial problems. He would just need to hypnotize someone to transfer a large sum of money to the criminals bank account. I have never heard of a case like this. The reason for that is, that hypnosis does not work that way. Throughout the process the deepest parts of your mind are always active and process the suggestions given to ensure that nothing happens against your will.

In case someone would say something to you during hypnosis you would not like (transfer all your money to this bank account), you would notice and get yourself out of hypnosis and the room quickly.

You can never get stuck in a trance. During hypnosis you will know well what is happening around you. The subconscious mind ist capable of taking you out of trance if necessary, for example in a dangerous situation. Think of a time when you were deep asleep and something woke you up in the middle of the night because there was a reason – and you were completely awake within seconds. Even during sleep your subconscious mind will protect you. The same goes for hypnosis. In case you would have a reason to get out of the trance quickly, you would be very able to do so, and definitely not be stuck in trance.

You will feel relaxed and full of energy. You can follow your regular day and for sure you can drive.

For whom is hypnosis not the right way?

I only offer non-medical hypnosis (though I will offer it as soon as my medical studies are completed), therefore I will not carry out hypnosis in one of the following cases:

  • drug abuse or heavy drinking
  • organic brain impairment
  • diagnosed mental illnesses
  • cardiac failure
  • serious lung diseases
  • pregnant women

  2. I will send you an email with a link to the registration questionnaire. Please complete this in full and take your time, as it is part of your preparation for the first session
  3. You will receive the confirmation e-mail, including all relevant information and the preparation for the meeting. Your appointment is not binding
  4. At the agreed upon time, we meet in my practice. In a preliminary chat we clarify open questions, in a coaching conversation we start to work on your topic. Then we usually turn towards the topic of hypnoiss.

IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO BE HELPED WITH ONE OF THE PROBLEMS LISTED BELOW, THEN I AM THE PERSON TO APPROACH.

I have been working in dozens of training and coaching situations in english. In a variety of contexts, a variety of topics. I am used to speaking englihs. When I started to learn hypnosis I learned it from english trainers in an environment where everybody would be used to only speaking english. Therefore I know the exact communication style professional hypnotists use in this language. Furthermore I am used to working with clients in the english language on a weekly basis. Few people in Germany are capable of speaking english on a high level while still being able to focus on the clients world. Hypnosis is all about communication. If you have to think about what to be saying next – the right moment is probably already over and the chance to help your client is gone. Therefore: Choose your coach and hypnotist according to their communication skills. English is key with this.
