STAGE HYPNOSIS

‚Äč

Those of you who have seen hypnosis being used on either the stage or the television will have seen some very striking things taking place.  It may appear that, with a few sentences, and maybe some snapping of the fingers the hypnotist has induced someone to say or do something which is highly entertaining to the audience.  This is the purpose of such performances; to be entertaining.  What you should know though is that the hypnotist will have worked with the audience beforehand in order to pick out suitable subjects for his purpose.  This means that by the time the subject gets on stage, he or she will have been in hypnosis at least once and probably more often, and so will more readily go into a hypnotic state again on stage.

 


Additionally, the hypnotist will know from this preliminary work which members of the audience are highly suggestible.  He may also have decided which of these highly suggestible subjects are extroverts and therefore more likely to go along with any of the more outrageous work he wants to do with them.  This is because even in a hypnotic state, no one can be induced to do something that goes against their deepest values.

 


The reason I give this synopsis of stage hypnosis is because people often come to Clinical Hypnosis for the first time having understandably developed some pre-conceived ideas about it based on what they have seen in these shows.

Frequently, people are fearful that once in a hypnotic state, they will be powerless.  This is not the case.  If you wanted to, you could bring yourself out of it at any time.  The work we do together is based on what you have already told me you want to have happen.  It is a therapeutic situation and I am only interested in helping you achieve what you want.
