Want to try self hypnosis for stress and confidence?

The best stress solution on the market is without a doubt meditation.

But meditation isn’t for everyone. Personally I struggle with it.


Because people like me are goals driven.

I need something in my life to strive towards.

So when I discovered self-hypnosis, everything just clicked.

Whilst it is easy to learn, there’s still a process to follow in order to promote this powerful learning state that we call hypnosis.

I quite like to use the PIRATE formula to remind myself of what’s involved:

P stands for ‘privacy’. You need somewhere quiet and comfortable where you won’t be disturbed for 20 minutes.

I stands for ‘intention’. What do you want to achieve through your self hypnosis practice? Unlike meditation, self-hypnosis has a goal. Maybe you want to get rid of a bad habit, improve your self confidence or have the ability to remain calm in even the most stressful of situations. Get clear on your intention before you start.

R stands for ‘relaxation’. You need to be deeply relaxed in order for self hypnosis to work. This is where the induction comes in.

A stands for ‘actualisation’. We also call this step the hypnosis deepener. It’s important that you get yourself into a deep trance so that you can let your unconscious mind get to work. Nothing is more disruptive to inner transformation than mind chatter. So we need to go deep.

T stands for ‘transformation’. Once you have entered your self-induced deep trance, you can start to focus on the change that you want to make. You will have formulated a powerful change mantra as part of the intention stage and you can now put into play your auto-suggestions.

E stands for exit. One way to exit trance is to simply count backwards from 10 to 1 telling yourself that you’ll be fully awake and feeling great when your reach 1. Alternatively, you can set a timer or simply let it happen automatically. You cannot get stuck in trance and you will exit self-hypnosis by yourself once you have reached peak state.

What do you think?

Do you believe that you’d be able to do this?

Self-hypnosis is a powerful technique for reducing stress and it has been evidenced to be effective for a range of other purposes:

  • alleviating pain
  • building confidence and self-esteem
  • overcoming sleep disorders
  • breaking bad habits
  • achieving goals
  • removing self-limiting beliefs
  • improving performance
  • losing weight
  • reducing anxiety and depression

If you’d like to learn all the basics of self-hypnosis, I’d love to see you on Saturday 2 July for my virtual Self-Hypnosis Masterclass.

This is a small, intimate class where we meet on Zoom to work on removing whatever is holding you back in life.
