Hypnotherapy is an approach that has helped countless individuals make the changes they need to in their lives. Nevertheless, the number of people who have experienced it and benefited from it is still a relatively small segment of society. Consequently, a number of myths exist about hypnotherapy and those who undergo it – myths that are persistent and seem not to really go away.
These myths can be damaging as they not only hurt the hypnotherapy industry, but actively discourage people from seeking the help they need. When the mere mention of the word ‘hypnosis’ brings to mind entertainers making people behave like chickens on stage, it’s hard to ensure that people get the treatment they’re looking for.
