Hypnotism licence

Performance of hypnotism

You must hold a permit to perform or stage hypnotism in public for entertainment purposes, whether live or broadcast, and you'll need to comply with the relevant legislation.

You won’t need a permit if the hypnotism is for the purpose of scientific demonstration or research, or if you are only hypnotising yourself.

Hypnotism includes:

  • any act that makes a person sleep
  • any act that puts a person in a trance

We currently do not charge a fee for this service.
