Hypnosis is simply a state of narrowed and focussed concentration. Whilst you will become very relaxed you will not be unconcious. Indeed it would be difficult for you to benefit from the trance state and hypnotic language if you were asleep!
There is a lot of confusion about the word unconscious. Because hypnotherapy deals with the unconscious mind this leaves a realm of ambiguity around the word unconcious. If you were unconscious you would not be able to hear the suggestion from the hypnotherapist. Hypnotherapy is a state of calm, relaxed, focused attention creating suggestions and commands directed to your unconscious mind for conscious change.
