More often than not, after introducing myself as a hypnotherapist, one of the first things I'm asked is, can a hypnotist hypnotize a person to do something against their will?
My answer often shocks. Regrettably, the answer is yes, if the hypnotist is either down-right unethical, or just thinks they know what you need better than you do. In other words, unethical. Yes, an unethical hypnotist can make a person do things against their will.
