Depth Hypnosis Research

In 2014, Dr. Joanna Adler, a long-time Depth Hypnosis Practitioner, set up the Depth Hypnosis Research Project to measure the efficacy of Depth Hypnosis in addressing symptoms of depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and in increasing well-being.

The hypothesis was that participant’s symptoms would decrease, and their experience of well-being would increase. Over a two-year period, subjects participated in eight Depth Hypnosis sessions. A total of 39 participants consented to this study. Depth Hypnosis sessions were facilitated by six certified Depth Hypnosis Practitioners, all with education at the Masters or Doctorate level. Treatment consisted of eight sessions of Depth Hypnosis, at 60 to 75 minutes in length.

The results of the study demonstrated significant reductions in depressive, anxious, and PTSD-related symptoms and showed marked improvements in the data points used to measure quality of life. You can view the results of the pilot study here: “Can Depth Hypnosis Heal Mood Disorders?”.
