This is an old favourite.
‘Put me under’ asks the client.
“What would that feel like” asks the therapist
“Dunno…. like being asleep I suppose”
Hypnosis is not sleep even though the stage hypnotist shouts sleep and appears to put the person to sleep.
So people do not ‘go under’ but they do feel like they are somewhere between sleep and ‘normal’ consciousness.
Any more questions.. drop me a line
