When people are in trance, they feel wonderful, and sometimes patients are not in a hurry to return to their usual state of mind. Dr. Lazarus has had extensive training not only in guiding people into trance, but also in helping them return from trance.
Dr. Lazarus also teaches patients to return to their usual state of mind. When patients practice self-hypnosis alone, they will always return to their usual state of mind. Because trance is so relaxing, occasionally, patients may fall asleep while in trance. Upon awakening, they will once again be in their usual state of mind.
