Hypnosis does not in any way harm the person. It does not aim to control his mind or brainwash him. A hypnotherapist is a professional practitioner and he should not in any way force his clients to do something that is embarrassing or out of their will. Sometimes, false memories are created during the procedure. In that case, the hypnotherapist is obliged to stop the procedure and advice the patient to seek other psychiatric treatments.
