Work Smart Hypnosis | Hypnosis Training and Outstanding Business Success

For the most part, the work that we do as hypnosis professionals is relatively straightforward and not that complicated. However, there is a minority of incidents where you will need to set professional boundaries. Perhaps you need to select the scope of practice and manage your time in advance, so you don’t run into challenges. You may even want to set boundaries so that you can increase your income and become a world-class hypnotist. Yet, many professionals in our field find it hard to recognize that they cannot be everything to everybody and they have a right to say no to serve their clients better.

In today’s episode, I discuss professional boundaries and ethics. I reveal how, by setting your hours, you will be able to work with greater flexibility and have control over your calendar. I share why you should work with transparency and only take on the issues that fall within the scope and limitation of hypnosis. I explain how you can use office forms to better understand your clients and filter out those who are difficult or uncommitted. I share why we don’t have to do it all the same way and embrace that you are not the right fit for everyone. I also share what it means to have a practitioner-centered business that offers client-centered hypnosis matching the process to the client rather than the client to the process.

“Set your days, set your hours. As soon as you do that, it actually opens you up for greater flexibility because you have control over your calendar.” - Jason Linett

  • Gaining greater flexibility by setting your hours
  • Understanding the limitations of the work we do and working within those boundaries
  • Fixing specific issues and when to make referrals to serve your clients better

I almost always begin my hypnosis sessions with the Dave Elman induction. Not just because it works, but because it teaches the client and myself to always think in a process-oriented approach. This methodology sets the framework of: now we have done step one, we can move on to step two, and so on. This is a 100% successful approach because embedded inside the training of this technique is troubleshooting, which allows you to make modifications to pass that test and move on to the next step and get into the work.

Hartland’s Medical and Dental Hypnosis is a classic book in the profession of hypnosis, exploring what can be achieved when you have somebody hypnotized. The book, written by Michael Heap and Kottiyattil Aravind, highlights some of the work from one of the unsung pioneers of hypnotic change work, Dr. John Hartand. John lived from 1901 to 1977, working as a British Psychiatrist and was involved with the British Society of Medical and Dental Hypnosis. He integrated his work with multiple modalities such as medicine, psychiatry, and hypnosis. Dr. Hartland is well known for his work on ego-strengthening and the direct suggestions you can use inside your work to advance even advanced strategies further.

Today’s episode is somewhat of a teaching episode where I share commentary and lessons in effective hypnosis. I share some of the specific language patterns and nuances that I have picked up from reading the book based on Hartland’s Medical and Dental Hypnosis. I explore drawing lines on client responsibility and share how our clients are capable of change. I reveal the ways we can communicate what hypnosis is and how hypnotic suggestion works. I explain some of the appropriate limitations of hypnotic suggestions, opening up the conversation on how we can make hypnosis even more effective. I also share the formula that makes all hypnosis work and highlight how all hypnotic change is about perception.

“A hypnotic suggestion becomes permanent as long as it is still congruent to the individual and has a reinforcement mechanism.” - Jason Linett

  • The two basic formulas of therapeutic suggestions during hypnosis and the cause and effect relationship
  • Setting client limitations and utilizing an open-ended framework
  • A definition of post-hypnotic suggestions: A post-hypnotic suggestion is not a magic spell, or in negative terms, a curse. It quickly decays in strength unless consolidated by the naturally occurring processes of conditioning and cognitive restructuring. It is usually easily overridden by conscious control or existing competing habits. The suggestion has to be aimed at the responses that are appropriate to the context valued or acceptable to the subject or patient or demonstrably with the subject’s repertoire or personalities.
  • How a hypnotic suggestion becomes permanent and introducing reinforcement mechanisms
  • Positioning your clients for success, replacing existing competing habits, and the distance, dissociate and diminish formula
  • An example of John Hartland’s psychodynamic therapy
