Know Your Hypnotist

I've been seeing entirely too many of these stories lately:

Hypnotherapy is about helping people, not taking advantage of them. I do believe that people, even under hypnosis, have ultimate control of their actions, but I also believe that you can get people to do a lot of things when they are in a suggestible state, especially when compounded with the fact that someone looking into hypnotherapy is probably in a vulnerable state to begin with.

This sort of thing not only hurts the victim, it hurts other hypnosis practitioners as well, when the public associates one hypnotist's disgusting behavior with the profession as a whole.
