Self help hypnosis
Self-Hypnosis is a form of hypnosis, which is self-induced. You can learn to hypnotise yourself and it can become a powerful tool that can be used for personal change. It can also be defined as a heightened state of focused concentration.
Listening to a pre-recorded audio or other media is often mistaken for self-hypnosis but it is just another form of hypnosis.
Self-hypnosis is a skill, and as with any skill it is best to learn it properly. The best way to learn self-hypnosis is from a trained hypnotist. You will need to learn how to hypnotise yourself, how to formulate suggestions that work, and how to deal with problems through the use of hypnosis.
The advantage of self-hypnosis is that you can help yourself, deal with problems as they arise and use an approach that works for you. Through self-hypnosis you can re-programme your own subconscious mind to deal with your problems.
It is important that you know how to formulate suggestions correctly otherwise it will not have the desired result. Without the proper knowledge it is best to make use of a trained hypnotherapist.
