Could something go wrong ?
Hypnosis has been shown to be a safe and effective method of treatment,
in the hands of a well-trained and responsible therapist. Generally
clients experience the state of hypnosis as a very pleasurable and
relaxing experience, which they are keen to repeat. Contrary to
popular myth, the client remains aware and in control throughout
the session and can choose to come out of hypnosis if he or she
so desires. Members of the Central Register of Advanced Hypnotherapy
must adhere to a strict code of ethics.
