About This Course

Published 5/2015 English

Course Description

This is a basic introduction to hypnosis, and an overview of some basic concepts. This is a standalone course designed to give you a fundamental understanding of this powerful and natural state of mind, and it also serves as an Introductory course for my other Hypnosis courses.

Through 7 video lectures, you will:

  • Learn what hypnosis is, and what it isn't
  • Find out how hypnosis can improve your life
  • Discover whether you are a good candidate for hypnosis
  • De-bunk some common myths about hypnosis
  • Explore where, when, and how to use hypnosis processes

By the end of this course, you will have the opportunity to experience hypnosis for yourself, and improve some different areas of your life. I have included three different hypnosis processes intended to appeal to a wide range of students. You can listen to these processes as often as you like.

  • If you have trouble getting to sleep, or staying asleep, the Deep Sleep process will help you sleep as easily and naturally as you did as a child
  • Weight Loss Basics will program your subconscious mind so it's easier to do all the things you already know consciously that you should do
  • The Stress Buster process will relax your body and your mind, allowing you to unwind and let go of stress and worry

What are the requirements?

  • No prior knowledge of hypnosis is needed, just a curiosity and a willingness to learn.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Understand what hypnosis is - and what it isn't
  • Use the included hypnosis processes to improve your life

Who is the target audience?

  • This course is designed as both a standalone course - serving as an introduction to hypnosis - and as an introductory section to all of my other hypnosis courses on Udemy.
  • If you are simply curious about hypnosis, this is a good "primer".
  • If you are taking one of my other hypnosis courses (or interested in doing so), this is a good place to start.
