Hypnosis is often seen by many as a “voo doo” technique, in which a person is made to bark like a dog or quack like a chicken. The misconception comes from what people see on TV or at stage hypnosis shows. What viewers don’t know is that the participants for hypnosis shows are often people who like the spot light and attention, so sometimes they will act out of a suggestion to make people laugh or to be laughed at.


Another common misunderstanding that people have about hypnosis is their problems can be fixed after one session. While it has happened in some cases, the effect of one session is not long lasting. And that is the reason why people relapse to their old habits. Imagine, if you expect to take one tablet of Panadol and never get sick again. Is it possible?


In addition, people are hesitant to hypnosis also because they are afraid of losing their “dirty little secrets”. While it is possible that a therapist needs to talk about past experiences to help clients gain better understandings, or give them some closure to their past, it is not always the case. There are many times the better solution is to help clients move forward. It can only be accessed based on case by case basis.
