History of Hypnosis

The development of hypnosis first occurred in the 1765 when Franz Mesmer proposed animal magnetism as a basis and method for hypnosis. Although this was discredited, Dr. Elliotson, the physician who introduced the stethoscope to England, later revived the concept.

In 1841, Dr. James Braid used the term hypnotism to describe his approach, which worked through focused attention and he is normally considered to be the pioneer of hypnotism.

In 1845, Dr. James Esdaile, a surgeon working in India, performed hundreds of minor surgical procedures under hypnotic anesthesia.

In World War One Ernst Simmel, a German psychoanalyst, used hypnosis for the treatment of war neurosis with promising results. The soldiers could return to the trenches almost immediately after treatment. During World War Two, hypnosis played a prominent part in the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder.

In 1955, the British Medical Association approved the use of hypnosis initially in the areas of pain management in childbirth and surgery and advised physicians and medical students to receive fundamental training in hypnosis. In 1958, the American Medical Association approved the medical uses of hypnosis and encouraged research on hypnosis.

In the early twentieth century Dave Elman helped promote the medical use of hypnosis. He specialised in training physicians and dentists in the use of rapid inductions.

Psychiatrist Milton Erickson is generally considered to be the most influential hypnotist of the twentieth century, although his impact upon scientific research on hypnosis has been less significant. He is credited with developing the use of highly successful indirect suggestions, metaphors and story telling in hypnotherapy

Erickson was highly flexible and would adapt his approach with each client and understood the need for a tailored approach. He believed the unconscious mind contained all the necessary resources to bring about positive change, so focused on engaging the unconscious by any means available.

Through this he founded a distinct Ericksonian tradition within the field of hypnotherapy and this is included in the Academy hypnosis training.


"The course was delivered with love and intelligence. The ambience was amazing and the trainers where so generous with their time and knowledge. Nothing was to much trouble. The optional evening sessions were absolutely fascinating and the venue fab. I so loved my four days."
C.H. Worcs, UK.

"I would like to thank the Academy for providing me with such a thorough and profession training, It is wonderful knowing I am working on such a solid foundation, I do not think I could have got this anywhere else."
J.R. London, UK

"I’m beside myself with excitement! Thank you for a fantastic online hypnosis course. I feel confident and it’s been an enormous learning curve. The hypnosis supervisor has been utterly amazing! So grateful."
Y.S. London, UK
