Is Hypnosis Sleep?
The largest misconception about hypnosis is that it is sleep. Nothing could be further from the truth. If you are asleep, you are unconscious. If you are unconscious, you cannot hear anything. If you cannot hear anything, then the hypnotist cannot help you. Hypnosis is a state of keen awareness.
The subject is wide-awake and aware of everything around her. This misconception stems from the stage hypnotist's use of the word "sleep" as analogous to the hypnotic state. When the old time hypnotist swung the watch in front of the subject's face, he told the subject that she was getting "sleepy." He then told the subject to go to sleep. What he meant was to go into a hypnotic sleep; not a natural sleep.

Most people feel very relaxed when in hypnosis. Some people feel heavy. Some people feel light. Some people have other sensations and feelings. Other people have absolutely no feeling that they are in hypnosis, and believe they have not been hypnotized when they most definitely have.
Who Can Be Hypnotized?
It was once thought that only 60% of people could be hypnotized, but in 1967 there were found to be two types of suggestability - physicals and emotionals.. Now it is believed that everyone who is willing can be hypnotized.

Must People Tell The Truth When In Hypnosis?
Can The Hypnotist Make Me Divulge All Of My Secrets?
You will not divulge any secrets under hypnosis unless you want to do so. A hypnotist does not have any control over a client. Quite the contrary, the client has more control over herself since at this time she has control over her own subconscious mind. The client can easily reject any suggestion the hypnotist makes, no matter how simple or complicated the suggestion might be. The subject can open her eyes, emerge from the state of hypnosis, and walk out of the room at any time she chooses.
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.
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.
