In brief self-hypnosis is a process where an individual puts themselves under hypnosis. Before beginning you would need to create a suggestion that would be similar to your intention. Pioneer of self-hypnosis, Emil Coue favorite suggestion was, "Everyday, in every way, I am getting better and better." In self-hypnosis you play the role of therapist, client, and observer. Hetero-hypnosis is where a hypnotherapist puts the client under hypnosis, is easier to go into trance and more effective. Continued practice with self-hypnosis improves skill and success.

A few basic practices should be applied in self-hypnosis: start by sitting comfortably in an upright position, make sure suggestion is logical and true for self, have a mixed induction with a variety of imagery and progressive relaxation. Imagery used should appear as if you have already met your intention. During Self-hypnosis you can listen to meditative music that has a pleasant tone and volume. Be sure your suggestion is well rehearsed.
