You cannot be made to do anything you do not want to do. You can hear everything being said. Following the session most people remember all that has happened. Short term memory is stored within the conscious mind, which is often very ‘sleepy’ during the session, but as the unconscious mind will have taken everything in, it is normal for memories of some parts to come back at a later stage. Your unconscious mind will allow your conscious mind to remember all that is necessary to achieve the changes you want to. Clinical hypnotherapy is a therapeutic approach, completely different to that shown for entertainment such as stage hypnosis. In that situation people volunteer to go on stage and therefore have given permission to the hypnotist to suggest they undertake certain antics. No one can be made to do what they do not want to do.
