How is Stage Hypnosis Different from Hypnotherapy?

Perhaps you’ve been to a night club act where a hypnotist got on stage and made members of the audience do bizarre things.  As a result, you may have become wary of hypnosis as anything more than a ploy to get people to act like idiots.

First of all, stage hypnosis is simply a show.  Nothing more, nothing less.  It’s put on by a performer who is good at bringing out the best in people.  He cannot make the participants do anything.  No hypnotist can make you do anything.  A hypnotist can only help you do things you already want to do, but have some sort of block preventing you.

Really?  That guy who got hypnotized on stage really wanted to sing and act like Miley Cyrus?  Yes.

When the show starts, they hypnotist asks for volunteers from the audience.  Several people rush to the stage.  They all know what’s going to happen, so they are telling everyone they want to go on stage and act like an idiot.  So, all the hypnotist has to do is say, “Close your eyes.  When you open them, you are an idiot.”  The subjects are already more than willing, so it is quite simple.  It really just gives the subjects permission to act crazy in front of an audience.

Unfortunately, while these performances are very entertaining, they are also very scary.  Many people refuse to experience the benefits of hypnosis and hypnotherapy because they are afraid the hypnotist will get them to do something foolish.  This is far from the truth.

A hypnotist cannot get you to do anything you don’t want to do.  Most of my clients want to make more money or release anxiety.  They want those things, so as a hypnotist, it is easy for me to help them achieve those things.
