"Moment to moment psychological life – evaluations, judgments, motivation, social interactions, emotions, and goal-oriented behavior – must occur through non-conscious means if they are to occur at all."
- John A. Bargh, Ph.D., Department of Psychology, Yale University
We know you might be skeptical, but this is the "real deal". . . technology that will help you Break Out . . . Break Through . . . and Break Free of the self-imposed limitations you have inadvertently placed upon yourself. Here, we will answer your toughest questions, honestly and forthrightly.
Where other training programs concentrate on helping you consciously learn, remember and master the subject matter, we work at a decidedly different level: your SUBCONSCIOUS mind.
By combining BOTH conscious and subconscious training, you learn faster, remember more and quickly move from TQ Stage-1, Unconscious Incompetence in a given area . . . to Stage-4, High TQ Performance: Unconscious Competence!
Remember, the idea is to become instinctively better at what you do... consistently taking smarter actions more frequently . . . intuitively.
"The Hypnosis Network gives you an exciting new way—and the tools you will need—to break through your current limitations, at a very deep level. Their tools will help you break out of negative, self-limiting behaviors and replace them with positive, constructive actions that will lead you to the results you want and the success you deserve."
The Hypnosis Network publishes the best recorded hypnosis sessions in the world, all from state-licensed mental health and medical professionals.
Unlike many companies selling hypnosis sessions, we select individual therapists for each topic. Each program we produce is developed by the most qualified therapist for the subject area in the English-speaking world.
Every therapist holds a Ph.D. or other terminal degree in a psychology-related field, and is an expert in the use of hypnosis as well as the topic area in which they record for The Hypnosis Network. We review the journals, research therapist backgrounds, and then ensure that each program is safe, backed by research, and effective.
Our hypnosis programs have been acclaimed by psychologists, doctors, and clinical hypnosis organizations, as well as individual customers.
We back all our programs with a one-year money-back satisfaction guarantee.Return to main page
Hypnosis is simply a relaxed state of focused attention. By temporarily bypassing your conscious mind, it gives you the power to make behavioral changes at a deeper level than when you attempt to make changes at the conscious level.
One way to think about it is that hypnosis increases the communication between your conscious desires (like losing weight), and the unconscious mind (where your true power to change exists).Return to main page
Your conscious mind is only able to process approximately 50 bits of information a second, while your unconscious mind processes approximately 11 million bits per second.*
* Source: Zimmerman, M. (1989). "The nervous system in the context of information theory." In R. F. Schmidt & G. Thews (eds.), Human Physiology, pp. 166-173. Berlin, Germany: Springer-Verlag.
That means your unconscious mind is about 220 THOUSAND TIMES FASTER than your conscious mind.
Making changes that can lead to your success requires changes to your beliefs about yourself, the world, and others. It also requires making real changes in your habits, preferences and behaviors.
It is more efficient to make these changes with as little interference from your unconscious mind as possible, in order to access its incredible processing power.
Much of the time, your conscious mind is actually the bottleneck towards effecting true change, as its main role is getting you through the day in the here and now.Return to main page
According to a fascinating experiment published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, just one act of self-control depletes your ability to have self-control in another unrelated area.
For example, when subjects were told not to eat chocolates sitting right in front of them, their persistence in puzzle solving deteriorated. When they were told to suppress an emotional reaction to a movie, they had problems solving a solvable anagram. The list goes on and on.
Source: RE Baumeister, E Bratslavsky, M Muraven, and DM Tice."Ego Depletion: Is the Active Self a Limited Resource?" Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, vol. 74, 1998.
We all have a limited capacity for conscious self-control. (No wonder it is so hard to stay away from the chocolate chip cookies!) If you fight your unconscious desires on too many fronts, you are bound to take a beating.Return to main page
Hypnosis, when practiced by a legitimate provider, has been approved for clinical use by both the British Medical Association since 1955 and the American Medical Association since 1958.Return to main page
Because of the movies and stage show acts, there is a perception that you will lose control when using hypnosis or somehow be under the "power" of the therapist. Nothing could be further from the truth. In clinical hypnosis, you will be aware of what is going on and you will find you actually feel you have more control over yourself. The hypnosis is simply increasing your ability to communicate with yourself.
"Hypnosis is not mind control. It's a naturally occurring state of concentration; it's actually a means of enhancing your control over both your mind and your body."
— Dr. David Spiegel, Assoc. Chair of Psychiatry
Stanford University School of Medicine
Meditation is a discipline that takes steady practice over a long period of time. The practice involves clearing one's mind over long periods of time by allowing thoughts to pass by while focusing on a point, a mantra, or some other focus. Often breathing exercises accompany this practice.
A goal of meditation is to detach from your thoughts, and to experience a deep awareness that your thoughts are not you.
One important thing to know about meditation is that it is "content-less." There is no goal aside from the meditation itself. It can lead to many health benefits, including stress relief and peace of mind, but it is not goal-driven.
Hypnosis, on the other hand, is a state of focused attention where the conscious mind is distracted so that work can be done with the unconscious mind directly.
Although one can learn hypnosis and use it on oneself, the most powerful use of hypnosis is having an expert clinician guide you through the change process. Using hypnosis in this way allows a person to make changes in a fraction of the time it would take working consciously.
In short, the difference between hypnosis and meditation is that they both bridge the unconscious / conscious interface, with meditation being without content and not goal-driven, while hypnosis has content and is goal-driven.
In fact, a lot of people use the aid of hypnosis to help them develop the discipline to create a meditation practice. Hypnosis helps a person create the behaviors that lead to the goals they set for themselves.Return to main page
This is a common question. First of all, none of our hypnosis products address anything at the spiritual level. There is nothing "new age" about them. They are simply designed to help you adopt healthy behaviors.
Almost all Christian denominations accept hypnosis for clinical purposes, as do Judaism and Islam. On the other hand, Seventh Day Adventists and Christian Scientists do not believe in using hypnosis.Return to main page
Definitely: Hypnosis has been used by people such as Matt Damon, Kevin Costner, Jackie Onassis, Tiger Woods, Ellen DeGeneres, and countless other celebrities to address habits, behaviors, and athletic performance.
Hypnosis has been reported on in many mainstream publications:
Programs like Silva focus primarily on visualization. Hypnosis, on the other hand, is open to all of the senses.
Visualization techniques might be incorporated into a hypnosis session, but would not constitute a complete session. Visualization is just one of many tools that may be used by a psychologist who is highly skilled in the use of hypnosis. So you might say that visualization is contained by hypnosis.
A lot of visualization programs, like Silva, are usually coupled with new-age beliefs in which thoughts create tangible reality. The hypnosis programs created here are not mystical.
Visualization can be a good practice to help focus the unconscious on goals, and it can help with concentration. Hypnosis just has a much greater capacity to overcome limitations, because it contains more tools and its practitioners have a broader skill set.Return to main page
There are pros and cons when comparing listening to a hypnosis program on CD to sessions with a personal hypnotherapist. Here's how Mike Adams of Truth Publishing described the difference when reviewing our programs:
"The main drawback to audio hypnosis is that the audio program cannot respond to you. It can't observe your physiology like an in-person hypnotist would do, nor can it alter the program according to what the hypnotist sees working (or not working) with you at that particular moment."
"The advantage, though, is that audio hypnosis programs are remarkably inexpensive compared to a live hypnotist, and you can listen to them as many times as you want without paying an additional fee. There's also the convenience that you don't have to go anywhere, or make any appointments, to experience the benefits of these hypnosis programs."
So with a CD program you don't have a personal, live response, but you gain the benefit of decreased cost, increased repetition and convenience. Whenever you need to slow down, re-center and refocus on your issue, the help is always as close as your CD or MP3 player.
The other difference is qualifications. At The Hypnosis Network, we choose the most qualified hypnotherapist for your issue.
It might not be hard to find a local hypnotherapist to help you stop smoking, for example, but you would need to know, "Who is this therapist? What are his/her qualifications? Is he/she a licensed medical professional? Is she/he a specialist in dealing with smoking?" Always look for a state-licensed mental health professional with clinical certification in hypnosis in addition to his or her professional training.Return to main page
Compared to other forms of therapy, hypnosis is the obvious choice for many issues.
Alfred A. Barrios, Ph.D. reviewed the overall lasting success of various psychological approaches. This study revealed the following success rates:

Research at Stanford demonstrates that about 95% of people are hypnotizable. If you are able to get "involved" in a good book, it is likely that hypnosis can work for you. If you choose to be hypnotized, it is usually easy to achieve, especially with psychologists as skilled as ours.
Remember that this isn't stage hypnosis. You are not going to be asked to surrender your will. It is up to you as to how you interact with the sessions.Return to main page
Many other programs are created by generalists, not specialists. For each program, we choose a specialist in that topic. We feel that if your issue is weight loss, you want a weight loss specialist, not a generalist.
The truth about hypnosis or any other technique is that the quality of the solution is only as good as the person providing it. Hypnosis in and of itself is not effective. What is effective is the expertise of the provider who uses hypnosis as a tool in order to help you get your desired result.
Every program we carry is created by the most qualified provider available for each particular outcome. For example, if the issue is increasing your productivity, then we find the best productivity psychologist. If the issue is sports performance, we seek out the most qualified sports psychologist.
Every provider we choose is state-licensed in his/her area of expertise. Unlike other companies, we do not accept people who just have "certifications," because certifications are meaningless in the world of hypnosis.
We will not "over-promote" our products or make false promises. Most hypnosis or self improvement programs that we see make wild promises that cannot be backed up by research (or common sense, for that matter). We realize that hypnosis is a valuable tool that you can use to help yourself realize a desired outcome. It's nothing more and nothing less. It is not a cure-all, and is not magical in any way, shape, or form. We are the only hypnosis audio session provider with the Health on the Net seal, meaning we have an outside third party who holds us to these standards.
We will not ask you either to "buy in" to any wild belief system, or to suspend your rational judgment. We only publish programs rooted in science. You will find that our programs are straightforward and are not based on "magical" thinking.
We back every product with a no-questions-asked money-back guarantee. We are very generous in this regard, giving you one full year to try the programs. If your selected program is not helping you achieve the desired results, then just send it back to us for a full refund. Even with this generous policy, fewer than 5 people out of every 100 who purchase return the programs.Return to main page
Our programs are designed to work into your schedule. Most sessions will last less than 30 minutes and you will only listen to one session a day. Usually listening to one session 3-4 times is sufficient to move towards your solution, although some people prefer to do them more often.
Some of our programs only have four sessions, while some have up to 10, so it depends on the particular program as to how long you will be listening. The goal is not to addict you to hypnosis, but to get the benefit of the breakthrough, and move on.Return to main page
The best thing to do is to trust your gut, or write us with your particular question. For Think TQ members, we recommend The ThinkTQ Accelerator Bundle (Productivity Breakthrough) because it deals with three issues that are fundamental to ThinkTQ (productivity, resilience, and self-esteem), and it's helped many members already.
However, pick the issue where you are weakest. If you are severely overweight, it is probably really hurting your energy levels and might be a good place to start.Return to main page
If you're using the program and it's not working for you, please call us at 1-888-332-6463. We may be able to help give you some tips for using the program more effectively.
If you're not happy with your results, return the program within one year of purchase for a full refund of the cost of the product.
Understand that each therapist is different. It is not uncommon for a person to return a program by one therapist, and then be happy with a program created by another therapist.Return to main page
Every program we produce includes audio CDs (from one to seven, depending on the program), brief instructions for use, and a product catalog.
The first track of the program is usually an introduction to the therapist, and his or her own brief explanation of hypnosis and how it's used for this particular issue. Then the therapist will explain how to use the program. The remaining tracks are typically hypnosis sessions, ranging in length from 10 to 40 minutes. Most sessions are around 20 minutes long. You'll listen to one session per day.Return to main page
