Hypnosis is a natural phenomenon. We all go into informal trance states multiple times during the day such as when we are absorbed in a good book or daydreaming. It is essentially a certain type of focusing which allows the critical conscious mind to relax and the subconscious to be more accessible, so the body/mind can restore and be receptive to shifting into new perspectives more easily.
Clinical Hypnosis is perfectly safe and you are always in control. It is a myth that hypnosis involves mind control and you can be coerced into doing things you don't wish to do.
