Choosing a Hypnotist For Sensitive People

Considering a hypnosis session? You can start with a referral from a trusted individual, or choose an actual hypnotherapist (a licensed psychotherapist who practices hypnosis).

Sensitivity.  Choosing your hypnotist carefully is particularly useful if you are very sensitive and strongly affected by others’ words and emotions.  Some people have the ability to enter deep trance quickly and easily.  These individuals may have an exceptionally strong ability to affect their own emotional state, and even physical health, in accordance with their thoughts and beliefs.  This is a positive power — when used wisely — yet this power requires extra protection.  Such people will need to be more careful about taking in other’s words, beliefs, feelings and attitudes — especially during hypnosis, when their critical faculties (the ability to question and critique) are relaxed.
