Anyone can be hypnotised if they want to be.
Everyone is different and we all experience life differently and so it may be that a person needs a different technique to begin hypnosis. They may be stronger visually (sight, mental imagery and spatial awareness) or respond better to auditory (sound, speech, dialogue, white noise).

A client could be resisting hypnosis because they are unsure whether they want to face their issues at this time in their life and could be visiting a hypnotherapist because someone else has told them to. 
If you have made that decision to make those changes and have that belief in the process and can adopt that positive mindset then the benefits will be endless!
Sometimes a client will fall asleep because this may have been the most relaxed they've been for a long time. However clients are encouraged to work with the suggestions made by the therapist for the best results. At times your mind may drift and some people may fall asleep, but at no point are you "put under" a spell. You are in control at all times and end the session at any time.
Quite understandably, this is one of the most commonly asked questions. Unfortunately, it can also be the most difficult to answer.
Every person and every situation is different, and so is every course of hypnotherapy. It's a bit like booking driving lessons. You can guess how many lessons you'll need based on averages, but you don't know for sure till you get behind the wheel! 

On average, I usually suggest starting with four sessions. If you can see value in booking more when these are complete, I am happy to do this. I teach self-hypnosis so you can take those skills away with you and continue in-between sessions. My goal is to give you the tools to take back control and feel empowered.
Hypnosis is a natural state of mind similar to daydreaming. Have you ever been lost in your thoughts while watching a film or driven from A to B and wondered how you got there? At no point do you lose control and you can stop it at anytime. People are often surprised that they can hear what is being said and can move or speak if they want to. Everybody’s experience of it is very different and how an individual feels may vary each time they go into hypnosis. 
Some people describe hearing every word the therapist says, while others find their minds wander. Many people lose track of time when they are in hypnosis. Being aware during the process is important as it enhances the efficacy of the session. Most people describe being so relaxed during and after the session and more enjoyable than they expected.
