Employment Prospects


Because many professionals use hypnosis as part of another career, it's difficult to list all possible places a hypnotherapist may work. The health fields, of course, are the main arenas for hypnotherapists. A dentist may use hypnosis to help a patient deal with the pain of a root canal, or a psychologist may prescribe hypnotherapy to a client who is having an extended bout of insomnia. Hospitals may have hypnotherapists on call to assist with an emergency room patient, or emergency medical technicians may use hypnosis techniques to help injured people on the scene. A nurse-midwife may use hypnosis to help pregnant women ease the pain of childbirth, or a sports physician may use hypnosis to help a football player ease the pain of an injury.
