Knowing why you are doing what you are doing in your hypnosis business helps keep you fresh, excited, and engaged, so your passion remains. It is critical to sit down and define what you stand for and why you want to work as a hypnosis practitioner as this can guide your actions and help you move forward in your career.

Today, I explain how this episode was inspired by Simon Sinek’s book, Start With Why, and share my main takeaways from the book. I discuss why it is so important to have a clear definition of what you do and why you do it and my personal why’s for my business and podcast. I also share why I continue to see clients in my private practice as well as why I am on a personal mission to help others leave careers they no longer enjoy.

“When a brand can define who they are and what they stand for, that’s what builds loyal, raving fans.” - Jason Linett

 

  • Why it is important to define the work you do and why you do it.
  • How businesses define themselves while building loyal customers, clients, and fans.
  • How knowing your why helps you set core values and remain focused.
  • Why I teach business to hypnotists.
  • Why I took a risk and leased space early on in my practice.
  • Why I have a goal to help people leave careers they hate.
  • The why behind my podcast.

  • Why I enjoy working with stop-smoking clients.
  • The mission behind the Work Smart Hypnosis brand.
  • How defining who and what you stand for can lead to challenging decisions.
  • Why I offer online training.

Felix Economakis is a Chartered Counselling Psychologist and Clinical Hypnotist who has been working in private practice since 2007. He specializes in treating a range of conditions from phobias and anxiety to eating disorders, with a particular focus on Selective Eating Disorder (SED). His work has been featured by many UK media outlets, and he is a member of the British Psychological Society and the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis.

On today’s episode, Felix and I focus on the topic of hypnotic responsibility. We dive into the responsibilities of the client and the therapist and the problems that can arise when certain responsibilities are taken on by the wrong party. He shares his user experience and the four steps of the specific protocol he created for working with clients. We also discuss how he uses psychoeducation to build a rapport and level of trust and respect with his clients.

 

“The ones who are prepared to do the work will always do well because it’s more about psychoeducation, understanding, mentoring, and teaching rather than hypnosis.” - Felix Economakis

 

  • How working in retail was good practice for selling change to hypnosis clients.
  • The importance of discerning where your client is coming from and what you need to do to win them over.
  • How his experience allows him to recognize patterns and anticipate responses.
  • The importance of showing your clients empathy.
  • How he methodically walks clients through all of their objections.
  • The details of his user experience and how he diffuses their concerns throughout the process.
  • How he reframes the session and change as part of the learning curve while taking away the pressure to pass or fail.
  • The language and techniques he uses to calm performance anxiety.
  • The benefits of explaining the desired change as a change of perception.
  • How he uses psychoeducation to reframe the issue the client has in a way that they have never been able to articulate before.
  • The benefits of having parents present during the session.
  • How “parts therapy” can be engaging for the patient.
  • The 4R’s Protocol he created and how each piece of the protocol works together.
  • The importance of making the client responsible for choosing to change.
  • How one moment in a session made him realize that hypnosis is not always necessary for the system to change.
  • How he began his work with selective eaters and what he has learned from his experiences.
  • The difference between clients who are prepared to do the hard work and those who are not.
  • How to avoid putting pressure on yourself when you are the client’s “last hope.”
  • Why deeper hypnosis is often not the answer.

 

 

Felix’s 4R’s:

  • Rapport
  • Reconciliation (parts therapy)
  • Responsibility for change
  • Rewiring (hypnosis)

SLEEP! Get ready to learn actionable strategies I have used to prevent clients from falling asleep as well as the strategies I have used to wake them up. I explain the difference between hypnosis and sleep and the signs you can watch for to assess whether a client is awake or not. I also explain how altering the client’s physical position and keeping them activelyengaged in the session not only keeps them awake but offers them a better quality change experience.

In my live classes, I’m often askedwhat to do if a client falls asleep during a session. I believe that a client should be awake to get the most out of their experience, soit’s important to develop strategies for keeping your client awake and responsive throughout their hypnosis session.

 

“Sleep is one state of mind; hypnosis is another state of mind. You must awaken them to continue the process.” - Jason Linett

 

  • Why you should never immediately assume that your client is asleep.
  • How to assess whether your client is awake or not.
  • The difference between hypnosis and sleep.
  • Why it is essential that your client is awake during the session.
  • The stage of sleep clients willmost likely to fall into.
  • How to use instruction to awaken your client.
  • How to gently startle a client into alertness.
  • The meaningof active management of hypnosis.
  • The importance of engaging the client throughout the session.
  • Why it is helpful to change the physical position of the client.
  • How hypnotic suggestions can awaken the client or make them more engaged.
  • How to tell if your client is more actively or passively engaged in the session.
  • Why I do not record all of my sessions.
  • Four action strategies to awaken your client.
  • The importance of using the proper tonality for hypnotic suggestions.

 

4 Action Strategies to Awaken Your Client:

 

  1. Give them a bit of physical interaction.
  2. Drop your hand on their shoulder, instruct them to open and close their eyes and go deeper.
  3. Change their posture.
  4. Use half emergence.
