About this webinar:
Aphantasia is the lack of a mind’s eye (inability to visualise voluntarily) but can affect all senses. With visualisation and sensory techniques commonly used in hypnotherapy, aphantasia can be an issue for both the client and the hypnotist. Based on experimental research with a group of people with aphantasia Paulina will explore two key questions:
How does having aphantasia impact on people’s experiences of hypnosis?
How can we best adapt hypnosis techniques for non-visualisers?

Dr Paulina Trevena is a researcher, social scientist, and hypnotherapist. After 18 years in social science research, Paulina discovered hypnosis and was hooked! She now runs a hypnotherapy and personal development business called No Woo Woo! Paulina’s ambition is to strengthen the evidence-base on hypnosis and develop best practice through her research on hypnotising people who have aphantasia and other neurodivergences.
