I am looking for help.

I think I first need to explain what I am trying to achieve. I have exams coming up and I want to be able to achieve hypnosis and self hypnosis.

I did achieve deep self hypnosis once so I should be able to achieve it again. The problem is that nowadays I can’t even achieve a light trance. I have been to various hypnotherapists who have all used some sort of progressive relation script. One of them used the Elman.

Here is how I have felt it has gone for me so far in hypnosis.

June 2003 I went to a hypnotherapist in Liverpool to stop smoking. A progressive relaxation script was used. I did not go into hypnosis. I smoked 5 minutes after the session ended.

Feb 2004 I went to a hypnotherapist in Manchester to stop smoking. A progressive relaxation script was used. I had trouble sleeping, only had 2 hours sleep before session. I achieved very deep hypnosis. In fact I was so deep I thought I did fall asleep. I thought as I had only 2 hours sleep and was feeling very tired and sleepy that I actually fell asleep. I know I never fell asleep as I have never smoked since. I never have any cravings even when drunk.

Feb – March 2004 I tried a few different self hypnosis CD’s and tapes for memory and exam nerves. I was never able to achieve hypnosis.

March 2004 I went back to the hypnotherapist in Manchester for a session on memory and exam nerves. I went back to this hypnotherapist as he had got me to stop smoking and got me into a deep trance in the last session. The same progressive relaxation script was used. However I did not go into hypnosis this time. We taped this session so I could listen to it at home.

March - April I listened to the memory and exam nerves tape that was made during my last hypnotherapy session. I listened to the tape many times. I never achieved any sort of hypnosis not even a very light trance.

April 2004 I e-mailed the hypnotherapist in Manchester and explained how I failed to achieve hypnosis in the last session. I also explained how when I listen to the tape of the last session I am unable to achieve hypnosis. I told him I do not think I am suitable for the progressive relaxation method and could I book another session. I asked him if he knew any other methods of induction and he assured me he did. I booked another memory and exam nerves session. As I had asked him to use another method I was expecting him to use a shock induction or the Elman etc. His other method was to use a different progressive relaxation script. To say I was disappointed would be an understatement. Again I did not go into hypnosis.

In April I went to another hypnotherapist who used the Elman induction. Again I did not achieve hypnosis.

Rest of April and up until now I have been listening to various self hypnosis CD’s and tapes. I have failed to achieve hypnosis.

So as you can see I have been to various hypnotherapists who have used a variety if progressive relaxation scripts, I have listened to various self hypnosis CD’s and tapes and I have had the Elman induction done on me. None of these methods get me into a hypnotic state.

So my question is what would be my next step

1) Get somebody to use a shock or rapid induction. Then use regression to see what is stopping me achieving hypnosis and self hypnosis?
2 Get me to hypnotic state and tell my subconscious I will be able to achieve hypnosis and self hypnosis when I listen to my tapes and CD’s?
3 Once I am in a hypnotic state give me post hypnotic suggestions to help me achieve self hypnosis?
4) 1, 2 and 3 combined?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Hello pierced100
Why don't you just find a really good hypnotherapist, somebody that have some skill and doen't use scripts, as there are not the best way, to help most people get into trance.

I find it quite funny when I read post like your's your already in a trance, just by the process of using words, so lets try something. what specific skills do you want to learn? How would learning these skills make you feel? How you know that? if you could create the best trance state, how would that feel? What eles could you add to it for it to work better?

Trance and hypnosis is not a magical state that is created by somebody other than your self. Knowing what you want, allows you to create the out-comes you want. be very specific in what you want, and create a imagined dream scape, of what yoiu would like to learn, this is very basic, hypnosis stuff. and you will get what you need.

If it has consciousness it's already in a trance.
