"Myth: A Hypnotist can take control of my mind.
Fact: No one can control your mind, unless you allow him or her to do so. A hypnotherapist gives you suggestions that you want to be given, based on your therapeutic goals and objectives. At no point during hypnosis will you lose control of your mind. If you hear a suggestion that you do not agree with, or do not understand, your subconscious mind will automatically reject it.
Myth: I will be made to perform embarrassing acts, such as cluck like a chicken.
Fact: This notion is based on stage hypnosis and Hollywood fiction. The truth is that people, who volunteer to be on stage, allow themselves to participate in and respond to suggestions designed around entertainment. By contrast, hypnotherapy is a serious process of self-improvement. But if that's what you really want, I can help you out.
Myth: When Hypnotized, I will lose all sense of my surroundings, and will have no memory of being hypnotized.
Fact: Hypnosis is not an unconscious state of sleep. In fact, most people report having a heightened sense of awareness, concentration, focus, and hearing.
Myth: Hypnotherapy is Magic.
Fact: Hypnosis is not magic! It requires work and dedication."
