  1. You can master the technique yourself if you set yourself such a goal – although, of course, it is much better to learn from a living person.

    While you are learning the technique yourself, you will have a number of questions:

    • Am I doing the right thing?
    • How, by what signs, can I understand what I'm doing?
    • Can I proceed to the next stage?
    • What should I do next?

    And until you answer the question, it is advisable not to move on.

    And, of course, an important point: mastering the technique of hypnosis is necessary for something. How do you want to use it? Treat, teach, persuade? Просто “шоб було”? Just in case, I warn you that it is unlikely that you will be able to conquer the world with the help of hypnosis.

    Hypnosis is 99 % practice. The technique is mastered precisely in its constant exercise, receiving and analyzing feedback, and improving your approaches. Without practice, it will just be knowledge in a certain area.

  2. In theory, it is possible . In practice , you need a person who will need to work out methods and techniques, and who will give feedback to understand whether you can do it or not. There is a lot of information about Erickson's hypnosis on the web. I recommend starting with the development of self-hypnosis, as well as trance induction through the “accompaniment to pleasant memories” and the “3-2-1″ method, which can also be found on the web. And you can also read Erickson's books – they themselves are trance-inducing and have a therapeutic effect, for example, ” My Voice will stay with you. “

  3. Yes, of course you can. Hypnosis is a skill that can and should be trained… There are many “varieties” of hypnosis. This is both Ericksonian and classical, and directive. But in essence, hypnosis is one. But the scope of its application is really extensive. With hypnosis, you can perform, they can be treated or, as the Gypsies do. All this is gained through experience and skills. There is a lot of specialized literature on hypnosis and hypnotic techniques. But it is better to watch video seminars that are easily searched on the Internet…

  4. There is no clear answer to your question.
    Of course, you can learn some techniques yourself.
    Jokes, paradoxical statements, and template-breaking techniques are all types of hypnotherapy.
    You can read about them, learn them, and try to apply them in real life.
    If we are talking about the systematic study of hypnosis as a therapeutic method, then it is worth spending time and money on training with masters, not only for ethical and safety reasons, but also for common sense reasons.
    For example, almost the most important thing in hypnosis is considered to be the so-called “therapist's trance”, i.e. your own ability to be in a trance state-then this state is transmitted, “induced” to the patient. The therapist's trance is developed in numerous exercises in pairs and threes during the training process, i.e. you need to repeatedly visit both the hypnotherapist and the client of the hypnotherapist, as well as an observer of such work. In the course of this work, you learn to easily and naturally construct metaphors, enter a trance, and so on.
    You can start on your own, for example, with Pavel Lebedko's book “Self-Hypnosis in Pictures”, or by watching videos of Milton or Betty Erickson, or Mikhail Romanovich Ginzburg on YouTube.

  5. Yes, because the client always immerses himself in hypnosis. The hypnotherapist only guides him to this state with a series of instructions, like a guide. It is not difficult to master these methods. Inducing hypnosis is the easiest part of therapy, as it is done in a few minutes. It is much more important in hypnosis to help a person get rid of the problem with which he turned, quickly, completely and permanently. And this requires serious knowledge and experience. There are schools and people who teach hypnosis and hypnotherapy. You can master it, of course, just like any other skill.

  6. There is a need to separate the concepts of domestic and therapeutic hypnosis.

    Household, this is the image of hypnosis formed in society. This can include Gypsy methods, cases when a person is turned into a chicken, or forced to squeeze his hands, and the inability to open them. �This is the kind of hypnosis where there are hypnotic and non-hypnotic people.

    Therapeutic hypnosis is a method primarily used for “good” purposes, when the therapist decides that it is necessary(or if the therapist specializes in it) to work effectively with the client. It is used in their practice: psychiatrists, psychoanalysts, nlp therapists, and those who have considered it necessary in their work, and have received appropriate training(in universities, as a rule, hypnosis is not taught, if only theory).

    Also on youtube, you can find recordings of Milton Erickson, a prominent figure in this field, with real therapeutic hypnosis sessions (specifically the request “Milton Erickson hypnosis”), and decide whether there is a need to study this method.

  7. Among others, a person has such a characteristic – “hypnability”. There are people who can easily be hypnotized, and people who can't be hypnotized at all. In principle, the technique of hypnosis can be learned, but, as for example, in drawing, you also need a natural talent. That is, you can learn hypnosis, but you are unlikely to become a famous hypnotist. Hypnosis from the inside and out is well shown in the children's book series about Molly Moon (Harry Potter in real life without magic).

  8. My aunt, a psychiatrist, worked in Kiev in the next office to Kashpirovsky. And she said that he, of course, is not a psychic, just owns hypnosis. And since these are not super-abilities, but a certain skill, you can learn.
    As far as I'm concerned, it's like playing the piano or flying a plane – people can do it, but not everyone can.
