There has been a growing acceptance of hypnotherapy by the conventional medical establishment and the general public over the past decade. According to the Occupational Outlook Quarterly, the best opportunities in hypnotherapy are for those who add hypnosis skills to other medical or therapeutic skills, such as dentistry or psychology. People trained only in hypnotherapy generally have a more difficult path. Working for themselves, they need to advertise their services and develop a client base. It can take time to build up a business to the point where it can support you. Competition may also be tough, especially in areas where hypnotism is popular, such as California. Hypnotherapists with limited training often drop out of the field.
