Freddie Jacquin

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!

I'll also add that Sigmond Freud tried to use hypnotherapy in his earlier days, but it has been suggested that he wasn't very good at it. Instead, he got people to sit on a couch and talk to themselves until they found their answer. Clients would probably have induced a self-hypnotic trance in themselves, as they explored their own minds!
