Is hypnosis dangerous?

No, hypnosis is not dangerous. Hypnosis is just a natural state of the mind utilized by the hypnotist for purposes of entertainment (as in stage) or to help the individual change certain habits or pattern of behavior. The mind has natural defenses built in which will automatically reject any suggestions it deems harmful.

“Contrary to how hypnosis is sometimes portrayed, you don’t lose control over your behavior while under hypnosis,” experts at the Mayo Clinic write. “You generally remain aware of and remember what happens under hypnosis.”

“Hypnosis is a mental state,” says Dr. David Spiegel, medical director of the Center for Integrative Medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine. “People think it is a means of taking away control, but it is actually a means of enhancing control—over perceptions such as pain, anxiety, habits, stress.”

In summary, hypnosis, when properly used, is one of the safest tools in the healing profession. As clinicians using hypnosis to help with treatment we need to be aware of the adverse effects when hypnosis is misused. It is necessary for any organization and any training program to promote not only the teaching of safe hypnotic techniques but also the restrictions of the use of hypnosis to the areas of competency of the practitioner.

As health care professionals in the public eye, we work with habit control frequently, it is not safe to assume that anyone coming for smoking cessation or weight loss is simply coming with that symptom alone. Anyone we see for hypnosis is coming with a whole baggage of attitudes, difficulties, adjustments reactions and so on.  With all of this in mind (no pun intended), we offer a thorough consultation to make sure our methods are congruent with your needs and to eliminate as much possibility of ab-reaction and return emotional or behavioral outcome, habits or pattern of behavior.  This includes making sure you actually want the changes and aren’t coming to us to appease others.

At the end of the day, you are solely responsible for your success and your failure. And the sooner you realize that, you accept that, and integrate that into your work ethic, you will start being successful.  Erin Cummings.
