Can anyone be hypnotized?
Pretty much anyone can be hypnotized as long as they are willing. Since hypnosis is a natural state of mind which people are in every day, anyone of normal intelligence who chooses to be hypnotized can be hypnotized. There may be a few exceptions such as people on certain medications or people with neurological problems. Those who claim they can’t be hypnotized are simply choosing not to be hypnotized.

These pages are intended to provide information to those interested in psychotherapy with hypnotherapy. They are neither intended to replace psychotherapy nor a personal consultation, examination, or diagnosis by a licensed physician. I am not a medical doctor. I am specialized to help people with fears and anxiety disorders. The profession of a hypnotherapist (official permission to practice psychotherapy according to the HPG) is fundamentally different from the practice of a medical doctor. Medical diagnoses are not made, nor are promises of healing made or medications prescribed. A medical or psychiatric intervention, if necessary, is not to be replaced by hypnotherapeutic treatment under any circumstances.
If you have questions about psychotherapy with hypnosis, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am happy to inform you.
