Is it better to see a hypnotherapist, or will a recorded program work better?
All hypnosis is self-hypnosis, but that said it is better to see a quailfied hypnotherapist to get the best results. Self-hypnosis recordings never really take you to the level that a hypnotist can. They tend to be more guided imagery and affirmations.
Are There Any Dangers In Self-Hypnosis?
There are basically no dangers to the practice of self-hypnosis. It is impossible to "get stuck" in self-hypnosis. The worst thing that could possibly happen while a subject is in hypnosis is that she might fall into a natural state of sleep for 20 or 30 minutes. She would awaken rested and out of the state of hypnosis.
