The Tom Silver Institute of Hypnosis

As founder and creator of the Tom Silver Institute of Hypnosis, Tom has dedicated his life to advancing the field of hypnosis through education and the development and implementation of his own scientifically verifiable hypnotic induction methods and ground-breaking hypnotherapy techniques.

In what he has termed “EEG Scientific Hypnotism”, Tom discovered that, by using an electroencephalogram (EEG) during a hypnosis session, he could visually confirm the very moments when his “subject” reached the “theta” and “delta” states of brainwave activity. These are the brainwave frequency states where the “subject” proves to be the most susceptible to hypnotic suggestion and achieves the most effective results from applied hypnotherapy.

“From the moment I met Tom Silver, not only did true love abound between us, but a fascination for his work and his life story captured me. Having been married to him for over a decade, and having studied his unique methods of hypnosis, I now have the privilege and ability to tell his story. This novel is written from the standpoint of knowing this man, understanding this man, and providing not only the difficulties of his life, but the uplifting nature of his survival. Individuals of all walks of life can learn from his experiences and will be inspired by him, and will ultimately be able to understand and relate to this unique and incredible man.”

Having come from a long line of great story- tellers, she was the perfect person to write Tom Silver’s story.
