Myths about Hypnosis:
1) Hypnosis will make me lose control, surrender my will and I will be dominated by the hypnotist!
a. A hypnotic state is not the same thing as gullibility or weakness. In hypnosis, the patient is not under the control of the hypnotist. Hypnosis is not something imposed on people, but something they do for themselves. A hypnotist simply serves as a facilitator to guide them.
2) People lose consciousness and have amnesia.
a. A small percentage of subjects, who go into very deep levels of trance, will fit this stereotype and have spontaneous amnesia. The majority of people remember everything that occurs in hypnosis. This is beneficial, because the most of what we want to accomplish in hypnosis may be done in a medium depth trance, where people tend to remember everything.
