Is Self-Hypnosis Dangerous?

Self-hypnosis is not dangerous. It does not put you in a trance or make you forget who you are. It is a technique that can be used to help people change their thoughts and behaviors.

The hypnotist or therapist will guide the person through a series of steps to enter a hypnotic state. This is done by telling the person what they should feel and do while in this state, such as “you will feel as if your eyelids are very heavy” or “you will feel safe and relaxed.” 

Once the hypnotic state has been achieved, the therapist may use suggestions to help change how someone thinks about themselves or how they behave.
