Questions and answers

Q. Does the client remember what happens in a root cause hypnotherapy session?

A. Yes. The goal of the therapy is to reveal, not conceal.

Q. Can everyone benefit from root cause hypnotherapy?

A. No. It is vital to have a thorough discussion with the therapist, and if necessary with your other care providers, to determine if this form of therapy is suitable for you. If you have been or are being treated for any form of mental illness, or are taking any form of medication, it is essential to inform the hypnotherapist before treatment commences.

Q. Can hypnosis cause someone to do things they would not normally do?

A. It is possible during hypnosis to use suggestion to make one believe they are experiencing something different to the reality, and therefore to react in unrealistic ways. This may occur with entertainment hypnotists — but it is not a tool for therapy.

By contrast, suggestion can work therapeutically to affect a person's behaviour post hypnosis. For example, we can persuade the unconscious that it will help the person by saying no to a cigarette. Suggestion can help with a surprisingly broad range of behaviours — if the person truly desires help.

As for whether posthypnotic suggestion can lead a person to do wrong: a truly unethical hypnotist could, potentially, use suggestion to mislead someone into taking action that results in harm. But suggestion cannot compel a person to do what they know is wrong, for example to commit a crime.

Q. Do people "really" remember past lives during hypnotherapy?

A. The short answer is, nobody knows. But if confronting the root cause helps them, it doesn't matter.

When the therapist inquires of a client's unconscious about the root cause of an issue, the answer mostly relates to an event early in life. It is also not uncommon to receive an answer that the root cause is an event in an even earlier life. And this happens even with individuals who absolutely do not believe in such things. This is by no means "proof" of reincarnation. The unconscious mind weaves its associations outside the realm of the logical. What counts in therapy is dealing with the root cause experience. Whether that experience "really" happened, or is thought to have happened during medieval times, is actually immaterial to the success of the therapy.
