What hypnosis is not?
There are so many misconceptions about hypnosis, most of this knowledge is misunderstanding about clinical hypnotherapy. Clinical hypnotherapy is nothing like the stage hypnosis that you see. You are in total control all of the time, in fact you you have been in a hypnotic state thousands of times without even being aware of it , because it is such a natural state of mind, know as daydreaming. A good example of this is driving somewhere and not being able to remember any details of the journey, as if you drove on autopilot. Your unconscious mind took over.
Will I reveal my secrets to you?
