What are your attitudes and expectations about hypnosis? We will talk about hypnosis and what to expect at your session and I will answer any questions. But your answers to these questions will give me an idea of your current understanding and expectations.
 Strongly Agree Agree Not Sure Disagree Strongly Disagree 
Hypnosis is like going to sleep
Hypnosis works on the power of suggestion.
People can be made to do things against their will through hypnosis
I should not expect to remember anything that happens during hypnosis
Hypnosis can relieve pain. Surgery can even be performed with hypnosis
Strong willed people make poor hypnosis subjects
A single session will cure most problems
Some people cannot be hypnotized even if they want to be
A hypnotist must use something like a metronome, watch shinny object
All hypnosis is really self-hypnosis

Everyone can be hypnotized. However, people respond to hypnosis in different ways. This little survey will help me understand how to best help you achieve a productive hypnotic state. Thank you for your patience.
 Never have this experience. I occasionally have this experience. I often have this experience.   
Sometimes I feel and experience things like I did as a child.   
I can be greatly moved by an eloquent speech or poetry.   
I may become so involved watching tv/movies that I "lose" myself in it   
I have driven past my exit while absorbed in thoughts or daydreams.   
Sometimes I daydream or imagine so vividly I "lose" myself in it.   
I think I know what people mean who talk about mystical experiences.   
A voice's sound can be so fascinating I want to keep listening.   
Different colors have distinctive and special meanings for me.   
My mind may wander off during routine tasks and I forget about time   
Vivid memories are often brought up by scents and smells.   
What is the main issue you wish to handle with hypnosis? While we can often add a secondary objective, it is best to have a clear focus for your session. So please check the one that best applies.
