FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is hypnosis safe?

Yes, hypnosis is very safe – it has been used for thousands of years often simply to allow people to completely relax. You cannot get ‘stuck’ in hypnosis or trance and in any case, we have a track at the end of most recordings that ensures you are fully awake. (Unless it is specifically designed to encourage you to fall asleep!) PLEASE NOTE: It is NOT SAFE to use these recordings while you are operating machinery or needing to be responsible for something or someone. You must be free to relax and immerse yourself in the recording in safe surroundings.

Do I have to be gullible or controlled by someone else to use hypnosis?

Quite the opposite, people who are good at trance can get real benefits that people who resist it do not get. For example, some people will successfully go along with the guided metaphors (stories) and benefit from the messages hidden within whereas others will resist and not get so much benefit from them.

I’ve seen stage hypnosis shows and I don’t want to be made to do anything like that, can you re-assure me?

Of course. Unfortunately for many people the only knowledge they have of trance is having seen stage hypnotism. As far as we are concerned at PETLO hypnosis should not be used by entertainment and we make sure that our products are designed to have some beneficial application as per the product description we supply with each product. All of the suggestions made to you will be positive and professional. As a matter of fact many qualified hypnotherapists undertake not to perform stage hypnosis and Pete at PETLO subscribes to this view.

I don’t think I can be hypnotised so can I get benefit from this kind of download?

It depends what you mean by hypnosis (or trance). If you’re capable of going along with an element of fantasy to enjoy or benefit yourself you can listen to these recordings and enjoy trance. If you ever day dream or sometimes catch yourself having done something on autopilot or you get engrossed in a film where things happen that can’t happen in reality then you can go along with our recordings and you should get benefit from them.

Can I hear the product before I go ahead and purchase?

Yes, each product has a short sample.

Where can I get more information?

On this page there are links to a variety of free videos to help explain some of the concepts we use – e.g. What is hypnosis?

Should I tell my Doctor I am using these download products?
If you are using a download to help with a particular problem and your Doctor is treating you for it, especially if you are on prescribed medication please speak to them first. Never change your medication without speaking to your Doctor. If you are seeing a therapist and you intend to download one of these products it would be a nice professional courtesy to let them know you are doing some self-help work.
Can I really get benefit from a download?
All of the downloads are relaxing and they have original stories or metaphors so they should allow you to feel peaceful and calm which has benefits in and of itself. You can get benefits from a download and the degree of success probably depends on the extent of your personal issue you are hoping to address and the degree to which you go along with the product (and complete any worksheets if there are any for your specific download).
Do you offer a guarantee?
If you are not satisfied with the product we will refund the price you paid when you purchased it within 30 days as long as you completed any worksheets that came with the your download.
Do you make customised downloads?

Yes. You can find out more HERE. These take about 3 to 4 working days to produce and require you to fill in a worksheet with details so Pete can design a product just for you. It will feature your first name (if that’s ok with you) as it will be made just for you. You can order a custom recording for someone else but they will need to fill out the data worksheet so the content of the custom recording can be tailored for their individual circumstances.

Is a download as good as seeing a hypnotherapist?
We have a free video on this – in a nutshell the honest answer is ‘no’. BUT a download is cheaper, anonymous and allows you to work on issues by yourself when and where you choose to. A good hypnotherapist will tailor a session for you and take an extensive relevant personal history in order to do this.
Are there any people who should not use these types of downloads?
It is probably true that if you have been advised to avoid relaxation you should avoid these products too.

Do you sell other types of products?
We also sell our book 8 Recipes for Life and excerpts from it with worksheets. Some of these appear in the bundles you purchase on our site.
How often do you make new download recordings?
We add new recordings as subjects become topical or as it seems relevant. New products are indicated as such on the site for a couple of months after they first appear and existing customers who are on our emailing list get notification and special offers concerning new products.
What sort of hypnosis is used in your downloads?
Our products use a permissive style which asks the customer to go along with the scenarios by asking questions and giving options during the trance element. Where we make suggestions to propose a solution to your unconscious mind these are sometimes direct (it is suggested you do a specific thing) and sometimes indirect where the customer chooses the actions they wish to take.
What makes your products good?
We are proud of our products. They have all been designed to be used as downloaded products and Pete our trained clinical hypnotherapist has carefully designed the content to help you help yourself. Each product has original stories or metaphors and these are used to add effectively to the suggestion process.
