Hypnosis does not mean you lose consciousness. You remember everything that you say during hypnosis and are aware of everything that happens. During the hypnosis session, the hypnotist or hypno-counselor's (NJ) role is that of a guide who works with you to identify your problems by tapping into your own inner wisdom. As a guide, your hypnotist does not provide you with answers, but leads you to the answers you already know. Hypnosis simply helps guide you to results, like a path through a beautiful garden.
