Where will you go in your sessions?
Self-hypnosis may be considered in various ways depending on the context within which it is used. Examples of contexts include experimental, clinical, and ‘self- developmental.’ Within each of these contexts there may be many different approaches to self-hypnosis. For example, self-hypnosis audio recordings.
Hannigan (2000) draws attention to two contrasting frameworks within which self-hypnosis can be understood. The first reflects a more authoritarian approach and is based on the assumption that “authentic” hypnosis requires another person (the hypnotist) to initiate the experience, and as such SH is conceptualised as ‘self-applied hetero hypnosis’.
The other framework is based on a more permissive approach, the notion that individuals have a natural capacity for trance that simply needs to be facilitated by the hypnotist. This framework suggests that perhaps ‘all hypnosis is self-hypnosis’. Another consideration suggested by Kahn and Fromm (1992) is that neither the subject nor the hypnotist entirely predominates in hypnosis, and that the experience may fluctuate along a continuum rather than being purely self or hetero hypnosis. The most usual definition of self-hypnosis, however, is a condition which involves self-directed responses, even if these are learnt initially from an external hypnotist (Hannigan, 2000).

Types of self-hypnosis
There are predominantly 2 types of self-hypnosis.
- Structured self-hypnosis in which the client makes use of goal directed strategies to facilitate change.
- These are the Hypnosis for anxiety type of sessions that are structured to address a particular topic.
- Unstructured self-hypnosis
- To help the client gain insight, ‘listen to inner thoughts’, ‘observe thoughts and images’ and to simply explore what may emerge. This type tend to be of the Relaxation hypnosis type.
