I'm afraid you've got a typical misconception regarding hypnosis. As a practicing hypnotherapist, I am well accustomed to it. While there may be a "focussing" of consciousness during the hypnosis procedure, the great majority of the time the patient is completely aware of what is going on. Hypnosis is an altered state of awareness, certainly, but not a comatose state where people lose their sense of self and perspective. Rarely would a hypnotherapist take their patient to an amnesic or deeply somnambulistic state.
