Franz Mesmer (1734–1815)

Perhaps one of the earliest hypnotherapists, under the name mesmerism. Unfortunately his approach was actually discredited on the basis that it was more powerful than original thought!

Sigmund Freud

Although he probably did more to damage the field of hypnotherapy that help it, his diary shows he tried hypnosis in his earlier work. It's just thought that he wasn't very good at it. He mostly got people to sit on a couch and talk to themselves until they found their own answer. It seems quite likely that his patients would have induced a self-hypnotic trance in themselves, as they spent all that time exploring their own minds! The Netflix film Freud tells a different story though!
