1. I have read that hypnosis is only useful for blocking pain, but its hard to separate fact from fiction on the subject. What about using hypnosis for entertainment purposes? Although only a small percentage of people are supposedly hypnotizable, ive seen live hypnotists take advantage of dozens at one time. For the career aspect of it, is becoming a certified hypnotherapist or entertainment hypnotist a viable career? Honestly, it sounds like it would be alot of fun. 2. Life Coaching: The field of psychology is very strict on making sure you are professionally trained and certified to provide work such as counseling. But now i am reading on the internet that there is this field called life coaching, which doesnt require a degree but a certificate, and is supposedly more lucrative than other psychology work, depending on how you market yourself. Is this just total BS?
