Hypnosis is not New Age

Phineas P. Quimby (1802-1866) who spent 20 years healing some 12000+ people and studying the power of the mind under hypnosis (then mesmerism). Quimby is considered the father of New Thought.
This was some 100 years before Freud discovered the Ego.
Quimby used his own terminology to describe the same thing.
Quimby treated the cause, not the effect. Which was always a belief in the mind.
Quimby was a pioneer in the power of the mind and the
power of belief.
And how the mind projects what we believe.
Change Your mind. Change Your Life.

New Age on the other hand tends to externalize things.
The New Age Movement is generally traced back to the teachings of Theosophy and Madame Helena Blavatsky (1831-1891).
Alice Ann Bailey (1880 – 1949) was influenced by Blavatsky.
Similarily Ageless Wisdom Teachings have been communicated through individuals such as Helena Blavatsky, founder of the Theosophical Society, and later by Alice A. Bailey and Helena Roerich.

Are you a victim of external circumstances? No.

You can change your mind and change your life.
