Frequently asked questions

Does Hypnosis work?

Yes, Hypnosis is reported to have a success rate of 93% compared to its psychotherapy counter parts according to Forbes magazine. In 1970 a groundbreaking meta-analysis of hypnosis research studies was conducted by Alfred A. Barrios, which led to the mainstream acceptance of hypnosis as an extremely effective form of therapy. He found that hypnotherapy had a massive 93% success rate after only 6 sessions compared to only a 72% success rate with behavioral therapy (after 22 sessions on average), and only 38% success rate with psychotherapy (after an average of 600 sessions). This led him to conclude that for changing habits, thought patterns, and actual behaviour hypnosis was not only the most effective method, but that it needed less time / sessions than any other type of therapy.
