Teaching self-hypnosis

There are basically several ways to learn and practise self-hypnosis;
The following instructions are certainly among the most efficient.
In principle, it is about suggesting a trigger to your client in a state of somnambulism; This trigger then immediately returns him to this state at any time. Induction as we know it is therefore completely out of the question. The trigger can either be specified by the hypnotist or chosen by the subject;


  • the subject is hypnotized in a flash
  • He can decide for himself how long he wants to remain in this state
  • he can choose his suggestions for himself
  • Selfhypnosis can be used anywhere, standing, sitting, lying down (whenever it is safe)
  • Autonomy for the user


  • Profound issues cannot be solved
  • Long-term results need to be repeated
  • Self-hypnosis must be carried out initially for at least two minutes; 21 days, repeated daily to ensure the linkage of the trigger
  • cannot be learned by reading a book (text)

  8. Strengthen condition

You can find the script for individuals and groups in the download section; In this case, you specify the trigger; Of course, you can adapt the script and use a trigger that you have discussed with your respondent in the preliminary interview;

The instructions for groups are also very suitable for online sessions with individuals;
