Work Smart Hypnosis | Hypnosis Training and Outstanding Business Success

Kelley T. Woods joins me today to share some of the lessons she has learned from working with kids and how she uses parents as props during her sessions. We discuss the value of working with clients from the mindset of an educator instead of a facilitator of change and she describes how the fact that hypnotherapy is often a client’s last resort can actually be a benefit to the practitioner. She also explains her definition of mindful hypnosis and the tools and techniques she uses to equip her clients so they can practice between sessions and sustain long-term benefits.

Kelley operates the Woods Hypnosis Center, and has extensive training and expertise in the areas of pain management, weight loss, athletic performance, and pediatric hypnosis. Additionally, she has written or co-authored nine books including the award-winning Integrative Hypnosis for Kids and Teens: Playing for Change which she co-authored with Melissa Tiers.

 

“If we can teach clients these methods and strategies that are easy to do and don’t take a lot of time, then they can not only start to self-regulate, but they can maintain that for the rest of their life.” - Kelley T. Woods

  • How modeling flexibility allows the client to be flexible.
  • Her advice for how new hypnotists can learn flexibility in their process.

Janet Thomson shares how she combined nutrition and hypnosis into one holistic program to help clients struggling with weight loss and healthy eating. She shares how she incorporated tapping protocols and NLP into her coaching practice and the strategies she uses to help her clients avoid self-sabotaging behaviors. She also shares the hypnotic creative process that allows her to get to the root of how her client arrived at their current state and how they can get out of it.

Janet is the founder of the holistic life coaching business Power to Change and the best-selling author of The Placebo Diet. She is a registered Clinical Hypnotherapist with a lengthy list of qualifications including an MSc in Nutrition and Exercise Science. After years of working in a health club environment with clients who wanted to lose weight or increase their overall fitness, Janet had a realization that the psychological aspect of fitness and nutrition was lacking from her practice. She now uses modalities such as NLP, TFT, and hypnotherapy to compliment her nutrition expertise when helping clients reach their goals.

“As coaches or therapists, we are in a very privileged position of being able to change someone’s life.” - Janet Thomson

  • Challenges she faced when working with clients on their nutrition.
  • How awareness can be curative.
  • How the study she conducted for her MSc thesis helped her realize that she needed to bring a psychological element into her wellness practice.
  • Why she believes in the power of the word “because.”
  • The importance of giving your client a reason, explaining the consequences, and giving them the power to choose.
  • Why she recommends giving clients responsibility in a way that gives them pleasure.
  • The two techniques she recommends to help clients prevent self-sabotage and cravings.
  • Why the way we think and feel about food should never be overlooked.
  • The benefits of using TFT and how you can incorporate tapping into your daily life.
  • The two-part question she asks clients who want to lose weight.
  • The first rule of sales and how it relates to working with the unconscious mind.
  • The questions she uses to start her sessions.
  • Why she recommends using language that the client uses during the session.
  • How food works as a placebo for our emotions.

 

 

Janet’s Tips for Working with Weight Loss Clients:

  1. Find the objection.
  2. Let them reveal their strategy to you.
  3. Use the timeline technique.
