Have you ever wanted to be able to hypnotise anyone?

Would you like to know how to do hypnosis without needing hypnosis scripts?

Are you new to hypnosis, perhaps with no experience and wondering where to start?

If you answer yes to any of these questions then this course may well be for you.

This How to do Hypnosis course from Dan Jones, one of the UK's leading hypnotherapists and author of many best-selling hypnosis & hypnotherapy books teaches you what you need to know to be able to hypnotise anyone without the need for hypnosis scripts. 

The course comprises of video lectures and demonstrations of hypnotic inductions with real subjects - you can preview some of the lectures and demonstration videos below before you decide whether this course is right for you. The course is broken down into the stages which are important to consider when doing hypnotic inductions and therapeutic hypnosis. 

This hypnosis course teaching you how to do hypnosis should take a few hours to complete, but you are likely to want to spend a little time re-watching some of the lectures and hypnosis demonstrations and practice with family and friends to fully absorb and learn all the material. 

The main sections all end with a quiz to test your knowledge of what you have learnt about doing hypnosis in that section of the course. 

This course is ideal for beginners to the field of hypnosis who are perhaps just starting out and wanting to get the best start at how to do hypnosis on others, or those with perhaps limited prior hypnosis experience, or only experience doing hypnosis using hypnosis scripts who would like to take their skill to the next level and be able to hypnotise people without the need for hypnosis scripts.

Guiding Attention Using Structured Hypnotic Inductions

This lecture is a hypnosis demonstration with a real hypnotic subject who is being hypnotised for the first time and so is nervous. In this demonstration I use a structured induction - the staircase induction to hypnotise the subject.

Responsiveness & Expectancy
6 Lectures 48:34

This lecture is an introduction to the topic of responsiveness, which is an important part of doing hypnosis, and doing influential communication

Responsiveness Introduction

This lecture explains more about responsiveness and how I build and test for responsiveness


In this lecture I introduce the subject of expectancy, which is having clients expecting unconsciously that things will go a certain way, like expecting therapy will be successful, or expecting that the hypnosis will work.

Expectancy Introduction

In this lecture I explain about how to build and use expectancy

Building Expectancy

This lecture is a hypnosis demonstration, this is the first time I have hypnotised this client. In this demonstration I build expectancy by using an agreement set. The agreement set includes the yes set which I talked about during the previous lecture. The agreement set is about getting agreement which could be a 'no' answer, but the 'no' would mean the client agrees with me - like "It wasn't raining when you arrived" and the client replying with "no", which means "I agree with you, it wasn't raining when I arrived"

Hypnosis Demonstration: Hypnotic Induction Building Expectancy

This demonstration is with a subject who decided to be awkward and wanted to challenge me and prove me wrong, prove that I couldn't hypnotise them. In this demonstration I do the hypnotic induction I spoke about in the Expectancy Introduction. This is a different subject to the subject I spoke about but what you will notice in this demonstration is that I ask the subject to look at the hand they think will lift as they go into hypnosis - notice I say 'as' which means I expect them to go into hypnosis, my question is while that is happening which hand will lift. They reply trying to catch me out by saying neither hand will lift, but they don't say they won't go into hypnosis, only that neither hand will lift, so I treat this as them still agreeing to enter hypnosis. I reply with 'so you think neither hand will lift as you go into hypnosis' and reiterate again that they will go into hypnosis, but also ask a question to get agreement (although they will be thinking 'no, neither hand will lift' which is getting a 'no' response, but this is still them agreeing with what I said). I then just act like I 100% expect them to go into hypnosis while focusing with them on their hands. What you will notice is their hands want to lift because they are focusing so hard on trying to make sure the hands don't lift, so they shift on their leg, the subject gets itches, and once he is coming out of hypnosis he raises both hands to scratch his nose, so I get both arms lifting as his way of still not having one or the other lifting. It is common for the pressure in a subject to increase so much that something they fought following during the 'hypnosis' happens once they think it is safe to do it,

This lecture I teach about confusion. Confusion is a key part of doing hypnosis, it is one of the best ways to shake up someone's current mental set (way of thinking and behaving and believing) and giving a new mental set.

Confusion Part One

This lecture is a hypnosis demonstration, this demonstration is a rapid induction which clearly uses confusion to help make the hypnosis more effective. This is a different subject to the one mention in the previous lecture, but it is the same induction.

Hypnosis Demonstration: Rapid Induction Utilising Confusion

This lecture continues teaching about using confusion as an integral part of inducing hypnosis

Confusion Part Two

This lecture is a hypnosis demonstration which you can follow along to and learn from, or you can let yourself go with it and follow it to experience it as a hypnotic induction. This hypnotic induction is a linguistic confusion induction

Guiding Associations
2 Lectures 07:29

In this lecture you will learn about guiding associations. Guiding associations helps to direct someone from where they are at to where they want to be. This could be from out of hypnosis to in hypnosis, or from having a problem to finding the solution. Clients have a map of the world, the therapists job is to help highlight specific routes on that map.

Guiding Associations

This lecture is a hypnotic induction demonstration with a real subject demonstrating guiding the clients associations. I am watching their behaviour and bringing their attention to elements of behaviour associated with entering hypnosis to guide the subject into hypnosis

In this lecture you will learn about the role that dissociation plays in inducing hypnosis and in therapeutic change. Dissociation gives the feeling of something happening automatically and independently of conscious control. This is one of the experiences people often describe when they are hypnotised - that feeling of things happening automatically that they didn't do on purpose.

Dissociation Part One

This lecture continues to explain about the role that dissociation plays in hypnosis and therapy and how it can be used and what you can do to create a feeling of dissociation.

Dissociation Part Two

This lecture is a hypnosis demonstration where I am using dissociation to separate communication I do to the client consciously from communication I want the client to pick up on and respond to unconsciously. To do this I move my head to talk to one location when I am talking to the conscious mind, and to another location when I am talking to the clients unconscious mind. I explain to the client indirectly what I am doing so that his unconscious mind recognises the pattern as something to respond to.
