Stage Hypnosis Friend Or Foe

As a Hypnotherapist people ask me time and time again about my views on Stage Hypnosis. Not so long ago I actually received a letter which was regarding my support for Stage Hypnosis. The letter expressed the great disappointment of its author that I supported Stage Hypnosis. It mentioned that Stage Hypnosis was ‘unethical’ and ‘damaging’ to the profession of Hypnotherapy as a whole. The amusing thing was that the guy that wrote me this letter was actually a practicing Hypnotherapist here in the UK, who in actual fact only decided to become a Hypnotherapist after seeing a Stage Hypnosis show on television back in the 90’s.

This is the exact reason that I and many other Hypnotherapists support the art of Stage Hypnosis. The reason being is that it interests people and makes them aware of the benefit of Hypnosis and the power of the human mind. Just like it motivated and interested this guy to become a Hypnotherapist. This guy mentioned ‘very humbly’ that he has helped hundreds of people over his career. Just imagine if there were no Stage Hypnosis, he probably wouldn’t have been able to start his journey to become a therapist and would never have been able to help them.

I really don’t understand why Hypnotherapy organisations around the world, other than a handful, haven’t really grasped that Stage Hypnosis is a vehicle to allow the benefits of hypnosis to be widely understood, however some of these very same organisations promote therapies that hold little or not scientific explanations whatsoever. One such organisation here in the UK springs to mind that actually has a register for ‘Past Life Regression’, and yes these guys are trying to be ‘mainstream’, but unfortunately they choose to reject the necessity of Stage Hypnosis in our profession today. This I consider to be extremely confusing, after all, all Stage Hypnosis actually is, is an entertaining way to put across the power and the benefit of Hypnosis. There is no mumbo jumbo and no new age spirituality needed, but just plan old science!

I really support Stage Hypnosis and really hope that we start to see more of it here in the UK and all around the globe. Obviously it needs to be done ethically, but this is the same with everything. Showing the power of the mind to individuals and to audiences through an entertaining medium is ideal to reach a certain portion of our society and to help them to understand the benefits of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy.

Should Stage Hypnotism Be Shunned By Hypnotherapists
Stage Hypnotism is a subject that is somewhat shunned within the modern day Hypnotherapy profession in the twenty-first century; however that same profession has its roots mainly in the very thing that it shuns.

Hypnosis Is A Real Viable Option

Hypnotherapy Be Your Own Master And Commander
Hypnotherapy, as a word has been associated with a lot of mumbo-jumbo over the years.

Is Hypnosis A Science Or An Art It s All In The Mind
The debate is an ongoing one, and no one seems to know the definite answer. So is Hypnosis actually an art or is it a science. Loyalists from both the camps will fervently argue about their case being stronger; however, I maintain that hypnosis is a combination of both these streams. So there! It’s a win-win situation. Researches studying the nature of hypnosis have found that it’s a state of near trance, where the person undergoing hypnosis is extremely relaxed, both internally and...

Fibromyalgia Beating The Pain
Fibromyalgia is a problem that can impact a person's ability to live a normal life. Because the pain and stress associated with this condition is so high, people have trouble doing normal things that other folks would find to be easy.

Some days, they are hurting so bad that they don't want to get out of bed. This sort of chronic pain can be very disheartening for...
