Dear Gurza

Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis in psychotherapy. It is used by licensed physicians, psychologists, and others. Physicians and psychiatrists may use hypnosis to treat depression, anxiety, eating disorders, sleep disorders, compulsive gaming, and post traumatic stress, while certified hypnotherapists who are not physicians or psychologists often treat smoking and weight management.

Hello,

All that you write here is correct. In the Psychological diseases which includes symptoms like hallucinations, delirium,   the person that practice hypnotherapy must have a lot of experience in the field. It is true that hypnotherapy is very useful but have more limitations than in another cases, the cases that you list here.
