Hypnotherapy, a therapeutic technique that harnesses the state of hypnosis to facilitate psychological healing and positive development, often remains shrouded in misconceptions, largely due to its portrayal in stage hypnosis. This article unveils the credible benefits of hypnotherapy, distinguishes it from its theatrical counterpart, and dispels prevalent myths, ensuring a clearer understanding of this profound practice.


Stage hypnosis, where people are apparently ‘forced’ to do certain things to entertain the audience is a bit like the trainers who have sensationalized NLP as a tool to persuade or induce certain behaviour in others, as opposed to the therapeutic purposes it was originally designed for.


The Misunderstood Science of Hypnotherapy:


Hypnotherapy operates on the principle of inducing a trance-like state that heightens focus and concentration. This state enables the therapist to make suggestions tailored to facilitate behaviour change regarding habits, stress, pain management, and various psychological conditions (Hammond, D. C., 2010). Unlike stage hypnosis, which is purely for amusement, hypnotherapy is grounded in clinical methods and ethical practices (Lynn, S.J., & Rhue, J.W., 1991).


Distinguishing Stage Hypnosis from Hypnotherapy:


Illustratively, stage hypnosis is a performance art, designed to entertain by compelling volunteers to participate in amusing activities under the hypnotist's influence. Conversely, hypnotherapy is a client-centred therapeutic intervention used by licensed professionals, where the individual's wellbeing is the paramount concern.


Debunking Myths and Misunderstandings:


Common myths suggest that hypnotherapy can make individuals lose control or reveal secrets. Research and clinical experience debunk these myths asserting that during hypnotherapy, individuals are in control and cannot be compelled to act against their morals and values (Kihlstrom, J.F., 2013).


The Clinical Value of Hypnotherapy:


Hypnotherapy extends its value in clinical settings, complementing other treatments by tackling psychological barriers that impede recovery (Elkins, G., Barabasz, A., Council, J.R., & Spiegel, D., 2015). It can reduce pain, alleviate anxiety and aid in overcoming addictive behaviors, acting as a powerful adjunct to conventional medical treatment (Jensen, M.P., & Patterson, D.R., 2014).




Hypnotherapy stands as a beacon of hope in the therapeutic landscape, transcending the gimmicks of stage hypnosis. It is a scientifically backed, client-centric practice that respects individual integrity and autonomy. As we bust myths and embrace the true essence of hypnotherapy, we pave the way for a more holistic and profound approach to healing.
