You have heard of Stage Hypnosis.
It is quite common that people will think of a stage hypnosis being conducted on stage. In recent years, there is another form of stage hypnosis known as Stage Hypnotherapy.
It is the conduct of a hypnotherapy session just like in the hypnotherapy clinic except the setting is now on stage (even broadcast on TV).
The process is the same as normal hypnotherapy, only that it is no longer a private session but a public one. This form of hypnotherapy could be beneficial to more people since the person undergoing the session can testify how she feels about the therapy and whether there is any side effect.
