This technique does not involve being put into a deep sleep! You cannot be made to do anything that you would not ordinarily do!
Hypnosis itself is simply a state of deep relaxation. You remain fully aware of your surroundings and situation and of the therapist’s voice. During this relaxed state, the subconscious part of your brain, that is the part that is the most instinctive force, becomes alert and awake and open to new suggestions. The therapist then uses this opportunity to help you make changes in your thinking so that you can address and
deal with any issues that you wish to work on.
