Under hypnotherapy, can the hypnotherapist make the subject do anything?

You are always in control during hypnotherapy, therefore, a hypnotherapist cannot make you do anything you do not want to do. You will be in a relaxed state and physically at ease, at the same time mentally alert. The hypnotherapist can make any type of suggestion during the hypnotic state, however, it is your conscious decision to accept or reject the suggestion.
