Hypnosis and Magic

Over the last couple of years, more and more people are combining hypnosis with magic shows. You’ve probably seem these demonstrations on TV or on stage, where people apparently forget their names or have their hands stuck to a table. These demonstrations can be highly entertaining, however are they really magic or hypnosis?

I have worked as a hypnotherapist for over 25 years and believe that hypnosis is such a powerful therapeutic tool that it should be used very carefully in entertainment. Some demonstrations can actually enhance the therapeutic aspect of hypnosis if set up carefully, however I have unfortunately seen so many magicians use hypnosis in ways that make people fearful of hypnosis that I encourage anyone using hypnosis to do so with the utmost respect for its therapeutic value.
