Most of the hypnotist job is to get them to a resource state where they can see a different option. Their perceived reaction to the problem may not be the only option they can choose. Translation?
Imagine a person who is depressed and have a suicidal ideation, they think that the only way out of their stress is to kill themselves where as if you remove him from the problematic state that he is in and remove the emotions attached to it then put him in another role where he is not the victim then he might think differently.
“You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche
