Term: Self-Hypnosis

DEFINITIONS

Self-Hypnosis: Self-hypnosis is a self-induced altered state of mental consciousness that allows you to give constructive suggestions directly to your subconscious mind.
source: Truth about Hypnosis, William Hewitt - William Hewitt

Self-Hypnosis:

Achieving or inducing a state of hypnosis, most often to suggest behavioral change, without the assistance of an independent hypnotist. Although the terms autohypnosis and self-hypnosis are often used as synonyms, to professional hypnotists there is a difference. Self-hypnosis includes all forms of hypnosis that do not include a separate hypnotist. Thus, listening to a recording, reading a script to oneself, or just self-talk are forms of self-hypnosis. Autohypnosis is technically limited to self-talk forms of inductions, giving suggestions, etc.
