There are many misunderstandings about hypnosis. So many of the misunderstandings come from a place where someone has seen stage hypnosis but never experienced hypnotherapy. Stage hypnosis is a real thing, but once you understand how it works, the magic and the mysticism disappear. The biggest misunderstanding about hypnosis is that some people think they will lose control or that they will do something against their will if they are hypnotized. This is simply not true.
