The terms "hypnotist" and "hypnotherapist" are oftentimes used interchangeably. A practitioner using hypnosis for the purposes of helping a client for such things as eliminating bad habits, reducing anxiety, improving motivation and performance, and also for health-related purposes such as controlling pain and/or suggesting greater health in a manner that is complimentary with other treatments may call himself or herself a "hypnotist" or a "hypnotherapist". However, "hypnotist" is somewhat broader and also includes the use of hypnosis for entertainment or "stage hypnosis." Sometimes "hypnotist" may seem a more appropriate term as well for applications such as forensic hypnosis used in police work, because the connotation of "therapy" in the word "hypnotherapy" would seem to be a poor fit in this type of work. Therefore, the terms are very often interchangeable but in situations having no resemblance to therapy (such as stage hypnosis or forensic hypnosis) a practitioner would likely be referred to as a hypnotist rather than as a hypnotherapist.

Whichever way the term is used, hypnotists and hypnotherapists utilize different variants of a method called an induction in order to ease a person into the hypnotic state (or states) so that suggestions can achieve the positive goals of the hypnotic session. On the subject of the association of the term "hypnotherapy" with "therapy", the association can be somewhat misleading. While some psychiatrists and psychotherapists may use hypnotherapy as part of a patient's therapy, more often than not "training" is a better term for the typical use of hypnotherapy in a hypnotherapist's office. Hypnotherapy is a form of education, or, if you will, training for the mind to resolve old habits and realize positive life changes. In hypnotherapy, the client has the opportunity to learn how to more effectively use the power of her mind.
