A fear of hypnosis is common, simply because people do not want to lose control. In my practice the focus is on the client’s well-being and freedom of choice. You will not lose control, nor will you do or say anything that you do not want to, even when in deep trance.
The relationship between practitioner and client is not a power struggle, it is a co-operative relationship. The hypnotist through skilled communication directs a client’s experience, but only to the degree that the client permits it. There is in fact nothing simpler than resisting hypnosis, precisely because there is no attempt to take over. The hypnotist has no special power.
Hypnosis offers no miracle cures. One has to accept personal responsibility for one’s problems, and in the context of hypnosis, it means being active in their resolution.
Anyone can be hypnotised, if they choose to be. It is indeed more difficult to induce the trance state in some individuals, as some are less responsive for various reasons. In my practice, all suggestions are carefully phrased along the lines of the client’s personal preferences, discussed prior to all sessions.
