The appeal of hypnotherapy is that it has helped people to develop favorable changes much faster while relaxed in a safe and comfortable environment. That being said it's very important to note that hypnosis is not 100% effective. While results can be impressive it is not a miracle cure and should never replace any prescribed medical treatments.
Things to understand about hypnosis.
The majority of people are able to go into hypnosis.
- Hypnosis is genuine and it works but you can't be forced "to make" any changes, even if it's a positive outcome. You need to want the change to occur.
- You can resist hypnosis, however that does not mean that you are unable to go into hypnosis. It simply means that you are choosing not to participate in the hypnotic process for some reason. (very uncommon)
- Hypnosis is all about team work! Clients are successful because they wish to do it and the Therapist, Hypnotherapist, or Consulting Hypnotherapist acts as a guide.
Some Hypnotherapists and Consulting Hypnotists also do Stage Hypnosis, others do not because in their opinion Stage Hypnosis reinforces myths and misconceptions about hypnosis. I think that each discipline while very different (Stage Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy and Consulting Hypnotism) should enjoy a place within society.
It's important to understand the many benefits of hypnotherapy and how it may help you to improve your personal life or professional career.
