Can anyone be hypnotised – is it right for everyone?

It’s generally accepted that anyone has the potential to experience hypnosis if they are willing and open. However it’s clear that people vary immensely in the way and degree that they respond to hypnosis. Some people will find it easier to go deeper more quickly than others. Other people take longer and may not reach as deeper level. Either conscious or subconscious resistance can impede the effectiveness of hypnosis and it’s a fact that some people will simply find it hard to let themselves go. In most cases it just means the process takes a little longer as the client learns the skill of being hypnotised, but the results are worth the perseverance.  If after a session or two it’s just not working in any way it might be worth trying another therapist or another approach. At the end of the day you need to feel comfortable with both the practitioner and the discipline for it to work effectively so it makes sense to keep searching until you find what works for you.
