Can A Hypnotist Make You Do Things Against Your Will?

More often than not, after introducing myself as a hypnotherapist, one of the first things I'm asked is, can a hypnotist hypnotize a person to do something against their will?

My answer often shocks.  Regrettably, the answer is yes, if the hypnotist is either down-right unethical, or just thinks they know what you need better than you do.  In other words, unethical.  Yes, an unethical hypnotist can make a person do things against their will.
