Hypnotipsy: Background and History



 The art of getting drunk without touching a drop

In the mid 1990s an NLP technique for dealing with dental fears was adapted in a rather wonderful way

Ordinarily, a person would be interviewed under a light hypnotic trance in such a way that their body remembered the sensations of local anesthetic. Once their face had become 'numb', a 'trigger' word was introduced and the individual would repeat this word a number of times; to create a neurological association, much in the same was that people learn to associate a particular feeling with a particular song, or a level of relaxing comfort with a specific smell.

One day, during a very creative Master Practitioner class, the technique was modified to see if the sensation of being drunk could be elicited and then triggered with a command word.

It worked very well, only we fpound that, once tipsy, the person could not remember their private word or phrase that returned then to their normal waking state. This was rectified by initially associating the subject's car keys with their normal sober state. Not only did this mean the person would not forget, it also provided a safety feature in that they would never be able to retain the 'drunken' state and drive at the same time. The mere act of touching their car keys would trigger their return.

Over the years a number of students enjoyed doing this, though I never heard of any of them applying it in their therapeutic practice. It seemed to another one of those quirky NLP techniques which serve as fantastic demonstrations of hypnosis and the workings of the mind.

And so things stayed the same: classes came and went and the 'Accessing Kinesthetic and Drug States' technique was enjoyed once a year by my students.


During an interview with a local newspaper, I mentioned this technique while we shared a very serious discussion about the therapeutic applications of Hypnotherapy and NLP: stop smoking, confidence, abuse and rape recovery, depression Etc. When the interview was printed its emphasis was on assisting drugs addicts with this 'quirky' technique. I was a little disappointed that my good works were not to be acknowledged and I consigned the article to the file marked, 'another reason to keep away from the media'.
Then, an extraordinary thing occurred. The media seemed to like quirky, rather than amazing therapy. I presume that newspapers swap articles somehow, because within two days of this piece being printed a glossy magazine called 'Eva' contacted me and asked if I'd be willing to do a feature. I said yes, and they insisted that I bring along someone who has used it, which was a little tricky to organise because I operate a policy of confidentiality in both my classes and in provate practice.
Luckily, one of my ex-students volunteered. Conveniently for the media's eye, she also happened to be very good looking and photo-friendly and the article was a success. It article was then passed to every tabloid newspaper and they repeated it with different headlines such as 'Hypnopissed'  and  'Hypnotipsy'.

The Hypnotipsy name stuck, and it was almost a year later before I was approached again. This time the Daily Express wanted to send one of their journalists to my house so he could experience it for himself. I was amazed when I found the paper had given a whole page to it, published on the 11th of October 1997.

Four years later, in the winter of 2001, I received a phone call from the producers of Richard and Judy. They said they had read about me in the Star that weekend, which was a surprise, because I have never even spoken to them. I guessed good old Hypnotipsy must have been plucked from a jornalist's drawer on a day of little exciting news

I said of course I would go on the show and do it live within 30 minutes, I had a similar call from the producers of Big Breakfast. They tussled between themselves and Big Breakfast won, which was a little daunting because I had seen how they treat people who cannot do what they claim to be able to, and Hypnotipsy had only been done on my students before. When my students get to the stage of learning the hypnotipsy technique they have been on the course for 18 months, which means they have spent more than a year developing their ability to relax into trance. To do this technique  'cold'  and with a stranger was something I'd only done twice before, with the Daily Express journalist and another from the Sunday Mirror; so, the idea of doing this with a stranger on live television

To say I was apprehensive would be an understatement. This was going to be live and performing at 6.00am is not my usual schedule, I can tell you. I needn't have worried, everything went perfectly and you can watch the short Big Breakfast video clip - it's really funny.

I thought that was it for Hypnotipsy, until Cosmopolitan magazine called a year later and asked if I'd like to go to their offices in London (of course) and spend a whole day getting pretty women drunk with hypnosis - hmmm   now, let me see

It worked a treat, and on the 12th of September 2002, Cosmo printed a brilliant four-page feature on Hypnotipsy.  For a year I was inundated with work and I still get enquiries from people who has read  back-issues in a waiting rooms and surgeries.

It may have gone quiet in the media for a moment but it's only a lull, and the Hypnotipsy technique is still vibrant and fresh and available for you to learn.
