When many people think of hypnosis, they think of entertainment; specifically people getting invited onto a stage to be soothed into a different state of consciousness, after which they tend to behave in bizarre, sometimes embarrassing ways. But as Stanford professor of psychiatry and author, Dr. David Spiegel, explains in this video, hypnosis is actually a powerful self-help tool.

You can use hypnosis to address challenges such as stress, anxiety, insomnia, pain perception, fear of flying, problem-solving, and the inability to focus, as well as a range of habits, like unhealthy eating, that can hold you back from your goals, and instead work to become your best self. 

As he suggests: “When you’re deeply engaged in hypnosis, you’re so focused on the central part of your experience, you’re not thinking about consequences so it’s a kind of cognitive flexibility that can be used for good.”  

Today, there’s a rich world of well-reviewed apps to choose from that enable you to practice self hypnosis using audio tracks that help you tap into your subconscious mind to achieve more balance. These help users reach a powerful state of highly-focused attention that can help give them enhanced confidence in their ideas. 

In a look at the best hypnosis apps of 2023, Verywell Mind explains the difference between hypnosis and meditation, although many of these apps represent a fusion of these two practices: “Practicing self-hypnosis is very similar to meditation, but self-hypnosis is more goal-oriented and puts you in a trance-like state instead of being present.”
