Many people who have experienced facilitated self hypnosis with a therapist, or have regularly practiced self hypnosis techniques, begin to acknowledge a growing interest in their self awareness. Being able to use deep relaxation techniques, as a means of creating more balance in their lives, enables individuals to explore their own personal development and wellbeing when it is convenient for them. Once this interest grows there are also other options to consider.

Developing an Interest

Some people develop an interest in self hypnosis quite by chance. They may have been directed towards hypnosis due to stress management needs, or another personal issue, which has started to become a problem. Through regular practice of the deep relaxation techniques they have become more able to slow down their thoughts, and have also become more adept at listening to and understanding the messages their body and mind is highlighting.

Using visualisation and guided awareness is also an easily accessible way of opening the mind to suggestion, which provides the individual with many possible creative solutions to life situations.

Useful Suggestions

It is helpful to make a list of the reasons why you are interested in developing an interest in self-hypnosis. It may be that you have an interest in accomplishing certain goals, and are able to use the specific relaxation techniques of self hypnosis as a way to direct your focus, and to build up concentration. Or you may simply be more interested in using self hypnosis as a calming way to switch off the outside world from time to time. Understanding the reasons why you use self hypnosis techniques will help you find the right way of further developing this interest.


There are a wide range of courses currently available that cover self-development subjects like Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Hypnotherapy, Life Coaching etc. For some people finding out how they can develop an interest in the subject is the sole reason they choose to enroll on a course. Whilst others decide their interest in the subject is much greater and they consider it as a possible career option. Whatever an individual’s reason for further learning is there is a personal development course available to fulfill their needs.

Using Self Hypnosis Day-to-Day

Once you have mastered the basic relaxation techniques of self hypnosis and visualisation, you will become more comfortable and confident in your ability to tap this powerful source of self-awareness whenever you see fit. You will also become more capable of identifying situations that would benefit from the stillness achieved by this form of deep relaxation.

There are many ways in which self hypnosis can be used to enhance your day-to-day activities, whether at work or at play. This includes beginning able to fully concentrate on a particular subject or task, being able to slow your mind to release thoughts and developing better skills through enhancing focus and attention span. An interest in self-awareness will also encourage you to use the powerful mind tools associated with self hypnosis regularly. Getting into the habit of deep relaxation breaks will not only leave you feeling refreshed and recharged, but it will also allow you to further your own personal development.
