Igor Ledochowski, recognized world wide as an expert on covert hypnosis, was born on April fool’s day, 1974. This accomplished Austrian Count earned a law degree from the University of Exeter in 1996. While pursuing his education he became interested in accelerated learning, using himself as a test subject on his developing techniques. Graduating in 1996, he took a position at Linklaters Law Firm in 1998 but eventually resigned in order to devote himself full time to his real passion—covert hypnosis.
He discovered the work of Dr. Milton Erickson, a physician who believed that hypnosis has a positive effect on everyday life. Erickson became proficient in hypnotizing people during the course of ordinary conversation; he did so because medical doctors were forbidden from using hypnosis and yet it could help so much in recovery. The doctor became a self-taught expert in covert hypnosis, hypnotizing people during the course of ordinary conversation. Igor heard about him in 1999 and became so immersed in the possibilities that he gave up his law practice to study under prominent hypnotists.
Erickson died in 1980 without documenting his technique but did pass on his knowledge and techniques to other doctors. Igor studied his methods using five volumes of his unpublished work and some old videotapes of training sessions. He trained with therapists that had worked directly with the great man. Using voluminous research and training plus his own experience, Igor integrated it all into a course he calls The Power of Conversational Hypnosis.
Conversational hypnosis allows one to gain control over a subject without their being aware of it in the course of everyday conversation. It allows you to establish a rapport with people that makes them want to open up to you and reveal things they normally wouldn’t. You can convince them to stop smoking, to buy a product, to alter their everyday habits, even to heal their bodies and minds. Of course, you cannot make anyone do what they don’t want to but you can point them in the right direction using suggestions. You control the conversation, guiding your “subject” onto the path you’ve chosen.
Igor Ledochowski has used conversational hypnosis to help those with medical conditions, learning disabilities, insecurities, phobias and other debilitating conditions. His book, The Deep Trance Training Manual (2003), is accepted as one of the best books on hypnosis for anyone that wants to learn. He is currently developing the “iMethod”, a digital course that is designed to help individuals master their own minds.
Igor Ledochowski has earned a Black belt in Shotokan Karate and a 2nd Degree Black Belt in American Kempo. He is also an NLP (Master Neuro-Linguistic Programming) trainer. His book, The Power of Conversational Hypnosis, is the best selling hypnosis course in the world.
