Hypnosis Won’t Makes You a Different Person

People have some fear about hypnosis, and they things they will completely change. 

Hypnotherapy cannot alter completely behaviors and beliefs that are core to a person’s identity, nor can it entirely transform a person. 

Because hypnosis works with a person’s intellect as well as their ideas, feelings, and emotions, it can only improve what is already there and cannot create an entirely new person.

Also, hypnotherapy cannot help you forget someone or erase unwanted memories. However, hypnosis can help look at unwanted memories and trauma differently. It changes the perceptions about the situations. 

To put it another way, hypnotherapy has the ability to alter “how you recall” the event, but it cannot alter the “original” memory itself.
