There are a lot of movies and books that portray hypnosis as having the most amazing powers. Now of course if that were true then the government would be employing all the hypnotherapists they could find to go into the prisons and hypnotise all the prisoners to make them model upstanding citizens. But you know yourself that doesn’t happen. Why? Well because yo have to want the change, if you don't want to change then guess what you are right, you won't.
However in my experience when someone calls me to enquire about doing hypnosis with me it is because they have something in their lives they are not satisfied with and want help creating the change. They want to have control of their life in a way, that instead of irritating them or making them feel small and out of control, actually delights them and makes them feel even more of who they are and know they are boss of their own world.
