Hypnosis can never be used to force anyone to act against his or her will. The subconscious mind will only accept those specific ideas, feelings, suggestions, memories, visualizations, and imagery that support the realization of their goals.
Some problems, such as pain or morbid obesity, may require a medical referral. For clients seeking my help, who suffer from severe depression or another mood disorder, I require a referral from a psychiatrist, psychotherapist, or clinical psychologist. I always respect the role of that therapist as your primary caregiver who sanctions in writing my role as an adjunct therapist.
Since results vary from person to person, depending on motivation and use of the tools, success is not guaranteed.
While each testimonial is from a client for whom hypnotherapy worked well, there is no guarantee that it will have the same results for all clients.
