Hypnosis: What is the Use of Pre-Talk in Hypnotherapy?


Someone asked me a question about Hypnotherapy today.

If we should not do any diagnosis, what is the function of Pre-Talk?

Yes, we should not doing any diagnosis. This is the work of medical doctors/clinical psychologist and other professionals. It is dangerous and misleading to clients as we do not have the right kind of training to do diagnosis.

But we do analysis with the clients. We assist the clients to analyse his/her own situation so that they can be clearer about themeselves and their problems.

So, we ask questions to help them to understand.

Medical doctors ask and answer questions.
