World Hypnotism Day Ireland January 2006 was dedicated to the memory and work of Dr. Jack Gibson, of Naas, Co. Kildare, Ireland. Over the past 60 years Dr. Gibson’s work in the treatment of psychosomatic disorders using hypnotherapy is inspirational.
On April 3rd, 2005 Dr. Gibson in his 96 year passed away. The world, in general, lost a great humanitarian and the hypnotherapy profession, in specific, lost a great teacher and pioneer. In recognition of his work, World Hypnotism Day in Ireland was dedicated to Dr. Gibson.
Consulting hypnotist Martin Kiely's interview with Dr. Gibson for the Journal of Hypnotism is believed to be Dr. Gibson’s last published interview before his death.
