Just moved to sweden(from personal reasons) and didn't have too much time to find that out until now, if somebody knows whether it's legal to perfom stage/street/for friends is the bar hypnosis there, if would really appreciate it.
If it's not legal than it's not a deal breaker for me as I don't perform strickly hypnosis but it still would make me angry as I would lose a lot of potential income and chances for performing.

As far as I know the only countries where it is illegal are the UK and Isreal. The rest of the world has more sense. I have done a show in Finland with no problems.

I now found few people who say it's legal and others who say it's not, also heard that it is legal but you need a medical deploma. Now I don't know which is true and whether it covers stage hypnosis or maybe just teraphy

I know this seems silly, but have you considered asking to see government laws concerning hypnosis in Sweden? If you don't want to contact the government, and if you can read/understand Swedish, try this:

An odd and rather unique situation exists in Sweden.

The ONLY legal stage hypnotist is Fredrik Praesto.

You may wish to contact him to see if this situation has changed. He is a friendly and helpful guy.

So, from what I gathered it appears that hypnosis here is ilegal without a medical license, which really sucks.
I know there are ways to do hypnosis without saying it's hypnosis, but without being able to market a hypnosis show I'll definitly loose some possible money

Sounds like only one of the problems.

Fredrik sounds like a great hypnotist to pull off a stunt like that!

Finally got a full answer:

If you have a proper training for being a hypnotist in Sweden, that means doing clinical hypnosis within the realm of health and care. We have asked our Polish colleagues, and you were not trained in those officially acknowledged hypnosis societies, as far as they know. Doing stage hypnosis is regulated by law in Sweden, that means it is forbidden until you have applied for and received a permission from the National Board of Health (Socialstyrelsen). If not, your performance will probably be reported and stopped by the police.

I have done workshops in Sweden and have mentored privately here in my therapy rooms in the UK with Swedish students.
With respect to Anthony there ARE other legal stage hypnotists over there.
I don't want to give contacts openly as I do not have their permission to do so but if you pm me I'm sure I can help.
