Self-hypnosis is a branch of hypnosis. Here, the hypnosis is performed independently, that is, without a hypnotist or therapist. Hypnotist and hypnotisand are one and the same person. This means that the hypnotisand primarily hypnotizes himself, and also without the help of technical means, such as hypnosis audio files or videos. A combination of self-hypnosis, external hypnosis and ablation hypnosis (hypnosis with the help of audio and video files) is possible in principle, but detached from it, self-hypnosis takes place completely without external help. This type of hypnosis is usually based on autosuggestion, trance-inducing ideas, focusing of consciousness or even mediation.
