There is benefit for a mental health counselor to know some basics about hypnosis even though it is not necessary to become a certified hypnotherapist. This workshop explores a few basics, including some basic hypnosis techniques to help clients establish a peaceful place to reduce anxiety. It can also be important to be aware of when a client may have his or her subconscious mind open to suggestions in order to avoid unintentionally implanting negative suggestions or creating false memories. Also, it could be important to both the therapist and the client to understand the risk of false memories and how they can be created.
