Hypnosis Made Simple is a short "crash course" in how to use hypnosis with your friends for fun and relaxation, with a focus on learning the most important principles so that you do not have to use scripts. It's not meant to qualify you as a professional practitioner, although the foundations laid in this course are a solid introduction to further study. For the kind of recreational hypnosis that's often done online or between friends, this course might be just what you need to gain the confidence to find your own, authentic voice. You will learn:

  • What hypnosis is and isn't, so that you know what to look for

  • What hypnosis can help with, and its limitations

  • Risks of hypnosis (this topic is too often neglected by other courses)

  • Your role, the client's role and how they relate

  • How to prepare your client for hypnosis

  • How to prepare yourself for hypnosis, including use of your voice

  • A very simple induction and deepener

  • Easy-to-remember guidelines for phrasing suggestions

  • A few big-picture ideas for what to say during your sessions

The course ends with a demonstration that ties all of these concepts together. Your instructor is a full-time practising professional who has never depended on scripts in 15 years of professional practice. He believes that you can do the same, when you use your voice with kindness and positive intentions, the way that's described in this course.

Who this course is for:

  • Complete beginners to hypnosis, especially those with an analytical mind
