Hypnosis is unambiguously and unapologetically goal-oriented in nature, for each time one does hypnosis there is a specific outcome the clinician has in mind. The goals, of course, are established by the client, and the clinician strives to create a context through hypnosis that makes it possible for the person to develop the necessary skills to reach those goals. It bears repeating that hypnosis in and of itself cures nothing; rather, it’s what happens during hypnosis that has great potential to be therapeutic.
