Hypnotherapist or hypnotist?

What is the difference between a hypnotist and a hypnotherapist?

Well it truly depends on who you are talking to! Some people will use both names to reference the work that they do. There is no ‘right answer’ for this question. Here at The Mind Clinic NZ we tend to view it like this..

Hypnotists in NZ

are people that use the state of hypnosis for entertainment. If you’re thinking of stage hypnosis you’re on the right track. They are the ones that use the most theatrical ways to get people into hypnosis, because that’s what looks good on stage right!? Hypnotists encourage the people to do funny things for entertainment purposes. We often get asked by clients if they are going to be clucking like chickens in our office, our answer is always…. DEFINITELY NOT!


And that is because we define ourselves as hypno-THERAPISTS not hypnotists.
