No, hypnotherapists do not take over your mind and trick you into doing their evil bidding. Unlike the media-driven myth of mind control, you are actually still in control of your actions while undergoing hypnotherapy.
Hypnotherapy involves the use of hypnosis for therapeutic purposes. During this session, you are put into a trance state in which you are in a deep state of relaxation, hyperfocus, concentration, and increased suggestibility.
It is commonly used by mental health therapists to help a client overcome a mental or physical condition. According to wellness-institute.org hypnotherapy can help with:
- Suggesting healthier behavior such as quitting smoking and reducing overeating
- Relieving chronic and acute pain including during surgery and childbirth
- Uncovering and treating the root causes of mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, and addiction.
