What if hypnosis was exciting?

By |2017-12-11T09:10:47-07:00December 10th, 2017|Categories: Uncategorized|Comments Off on What if hypnosis was exciting?

Excitement in hypnosis often only exists in the minds of the participants. For the most part we speak to clients, and they speak to us, and we listen and observe them, and they listen to us. It’s always the same pattern.  Excitement come only from the thoughts and engagement, but rarely is there simulation [...]

I suppose I am an expert hypnotist. And you can be one too! I have been doing it for 30 years, and even have a lot of awards recognizing my accomplishments. But those are not the things that made me an expert. Somewhere between learning hypnosis in the late 1980s, and receiving the IMDHA [...]

What if hypnosis was not slow? Does clinical hypnosis have to be relaxing and take us deeper?  Or can we go higher and do it faster? This week at the Las Vegas Master Class we explored the ideas of backwards hypnosis, and changing our metaphors. As I took some time to reflect this morning, [...]

Imagine contrasting these two hypnosis sessions: Session A: In this session, the hypnotist uses mental imagery of the beach, coupled with passive muscle relaxation and then a deepener. During the session, specific suggestions are made which are alternative actions to the presenting problem. The client is then asked to signal when a commitment to [...]

Hypnotists ask me this question, more often than any other question…. [Headphones & Microphone in Hypnosis]

The question is:  “How do I use headphones & microphone in hypnosis so my client can listen to background music and hear my voice at the same time?” Before I answer this question, let me tell you, it is entirely possible to do highly effective sessions without such a sound setup. Microphones, music, and [...]

5 things the media hasn’t told you about hypnosis

By |2017-04-11T14:40:14-07:00April 11th, 2017|Categories: Uncategorized|Comments Off on 5 things the media hasn’t told you about hypnosis

From Dracula using his hypnotic power over the opposite sex; to Svengali exercising all control over Trilby, hypnosis has been portrayed as dark or evil. In recent Hollywood portrayals, hypnosis has been relegated to comedy, like in the movie Office [...]

Contextual approaches to hypnosis are present-focused. They don’t search for a cause, but rather they train the client in a new skill, the skill of acceptance.[1] While many traditional approaches to hypnosis have dwelled on the past trauma, the foundation for Contextual Hypnotherapy is helping our clients to live fully in the present. Mindfulness [...]

People who say you should never use a hypnosis “script” … Probably don’t actually see hypnosis clients

I saw it again today on a hypnosis forum, a post saying “real hypnotists don’t use scripts.”  This particular post even referred to it as “scriptnosis.”  And while I agree, that going into a hypnosis session with little knowledge and just a script to read will yield few results, the reality is that real [...]

By |2017-07-31T13:35:41-07:00March 28th, 2017|Categories: Uncategorized|Comments Off on Hypnotists who are afraid of doing stop smoking hypnosis

I meet a lot of hypnotists who won’t do stop smoking hypnosis sessions because they say they never smoked. Hypnotists who are afraid of doing stop smoking hypnosis can overcome this fear, and it is a belief based in fear. Let me assure you, the brain surgeon who removes brain tumors probably never had [...]
