"During [these] periods of relaxation after concentrated intellectual activity, the intuitive mind seems to take over and can produce the sudden clarifying insights which give so much joy and delight. "
- Fritjof Capra
"When doing hypnosis for yourself, you are both the operator/guide and the subject. This is like being both the director of a movie and the lead actor. "

Teaching clients Self-Hypnosis is part of virtually all hypnotherapeutic services. Sometimes referred to as Auto-Hypnosis, Self-Hypnosis is crucial in maintaining the positive outcomes of any other hypnotherapeutic service and is a way to coax the client away from dependence on the hypnotherapist and toward more reliance on his or her own unlimited, hitherto unaccessed resources.
At the end of a client’s Regression or other hypnotic experience, the hypnotherapist may give the client a post-hypnotic suggestion to re-experience the positive aspects of the hypnosis by taking certain steps when he or she is away from the hypnotherapist’s office.
In other cases, the client will be given instructions in a one-to-one or group setting (e.g., Self-Hypnosis classes) about how to create an auto-hypnosis script made up of powerful suggestions for change. It is written as though the wished-for change is already happening with wonderful results. The script is usually edited by the hypnotherapist or other group members for clarity, power and intention. Sometimes, the hypnotherapist can make a CD or tape of this script for the client to use at home.
