Top 3 myths about Hypnotherapy
When you hear hypnotherapy, what is the first thing that enters your head? Mumbo jumbo? Voodoo? Clucking like a chicken? There are a lot of misinformation out there about hypnotherapy but you need to know the truth before making up your own mind. In this post we will tell you the top three myths about hypnotherapy.
Myth 1: It will take control of you
This is one of the biggest myths out there – that the hypnotherapist can take control of your mind. That when he snaps his fingers when you see each other, he can make you do things. The hypnotherapist is not all powerful or a magician, nor is he a mind-controller (not that they exist). They will only be able to help you according to the program you initially agreed upon.
Myth 2: It will make you do embarrassing things
You’ve seen those videos where people cluck like a chicken or dance around half naked. And you think you could be one of them if you let a hypnotherapist enter your mind. But that’s not actually the case. Those are all movie fiction, great for entertaining the audience but without a shred of truth. Hypnotherapy is used to improve people’s lives, not to make them do silly things.
Myth 3: It will make you do horrible things
We can’t emphasise enough that no one can make you do things you don’t want to do. Especially when they’re horrible things like stealing and murder. Again, this is just fiction and has no basis in real life. Your mind is your own and no one can take that away from you. A hypnotherapist can only enhance your desire to be a better human being, to improve yourself — not to make you do things that go against your moral code.
