For whom is hypnotherapy good?
There are no special features needed to become hypnotized and this method of treatment is suitable for almost everyone, however in general hypnotherapy is not used by psychotic and severely depressed patients . In the recent years, hypnotherapy is less applied in a way to place people into a deep hypnotic trance, as it was in traditional hypnotherapy, and is often depicted in movies: A patient into a deep sleep on a sofa.
