 Some common misconceptions addressed:

Hypnosis is ‘magic’ and produce an effortless cure – Although therapy conveyed using hypnosis can be very dramatic and seem to require very little effort on the subject’s behalf, hypnosis is certainly not magical or supernatural.

Hypnosis can unlock ‘lost’ memories – Hypnosis can help to enhance memories, however, once a memory is lost, it is lost forever. Care has to be taken not to elicit so-called ‘false memories’.

Hypnosis requires complete immobility – It is important to know that it is OK to move during hypnosis. If you have an itch, it may cause more distraction if you do not move your hand to scratch it! Long-distance runners can experience trance while running!

Hypnosis is the therapy – Hypnosis is never the therapy itself. Hypnosis is an adjunct to treatment or therapy.

Remember, each case is individually assessed. Hypnosis is certainly not suitable or preferable for everyone. You should not agree to use hypnosis unless you are fully aware of what it is and how it could benefit you. Extra care has to be taken if the subject has a history of mental illness, and in some cases, hypnosis should be avoided.

Most people are hypnotisable to some degree. It is estimated that 30% of people will experience a light trance, 50% will experience a medium trance and 20% will experience a deep trance. Some people do not respond to hypnosis with one hypnotist but the chances are that another hypnotist, with whom they have a better rapport, will succeed
