Fraudulent nonsense for cash
ITV are digging up the previously though dead nonsense of stage hypnosis 🙁
Scofield and a stage hypnotist are running the “back in the room” game show from this week.
Paid to pretend!
Contestants are not being hypnotised, they are being PAID to act like idiots, and are therefore deliberately volunteering and colluding with the “hypnotist”.
Incorrect terminology and descriptions
Hypnosis is wrongly described as a “dark sleep”, which it simply is not, and this idiotic series will wrongly tell people all sorts of things about hypnosis, made up in the name of entertainment.
Bad for the public, bad for the profession
HypnoTHERAPY and the use of clinical hypnosis is a professional therapy and form of psychotherapy subject to voluntary regulation, national occupational standards and monitoring via the Professional Standards Authority Accredited Registers. It is recommended by organisations including NICE and Anxiety UK as a useful therapeutic tool. CNHC (regulator) registered hypnotherapists are not permitted to engage in stage hypnosis, since it is UNETHICAL.
The CNHC, the voluntary regulator which covers hypnotherapy, and the other PSA accredited registers have banned therapists from having anything to do with stage hypnosis, because it is unethical and brings the whole area into disrepute. Shame on ITV for reintroducing this sham!
The public should look for CNHC registered hypnotherapists, or hypnotherapists subject to any of the other PSA accredited registers (such as CNHC or FHT). Professionally qualified and AR registered therapists have nothing to do with this nonsense.
