All religious groups (with the exception of Seventh Day Adventists and Christian Scientists) accept hypnosis as a therapeutic tool. Some faiths even use a form of self-hypnosis (such as meditation) as part of their rituals. Why should I learn self-hypnosis? Hypnosis is a powerful life skill for the modern person. There is a great deal of stress to be handled in today's work environment, schools, and society in general.

Remain more calm and centered in day to day life. You can design your patterns and beliefs to propel you to your highest goals and to your vision of success.
How is hypnotherapy different than affirmations? Hypnotherapy has the advantage of being able to communicate with the subconscious in a two-way fashion. Affirmations don't facilitate direct responses from the subconscious; they only seek to speak to the subconscious.

A post-hypnotic suggestion is also different than an affirmation: effects tend to be more direct, more specific, and more immediate when using post-hypnotic suggestions.

Other than that, the language of hypnosis and of affirmations is similar. Both are always expressed in the present tense, and always in the positive. If you ever meet a hypnotherapist that uses the words, "don't smoke" as a direct suggestion, choose a different hypnotherapist!
Is Hypnosis dangerous? Myths about hypnosis, perpetuated by Hollywood movies, urban legends and fiction books lead people to think all kinds of things about hypnosis, including that it is somehow dangerous. Some people have heard that you can go into trance and not wake up. Or that the hypnotist can make you do things you don't want to do. These things are untrue. You are always in control, always able to "come back" to full waking state at anytime if you wanted or needed to. The number one job of the subconscious mind is to protect you, and it is always on the job. For answers to your questions not found here, please call us at 714-661-6233
