Contrary to what you would expect, the client has all the control. The hypnotist has none. It’s not magic. It’s more like teamwork where clients will attempt to let go of the controlling tendency of their judgmental mind so that suggestions can be more easily accepted by their unconscious. The hypnotist facilitates the process by simply guiding the process along to the point where the client is open to new and more powerful suggestions.
