If you have ever gone to a hypnosis conference or read a book on hypnosis, you might have noticed that there is a big emphasis on getting the client deep--into a somnambulistic state. There are many problems with this approach to hypnosis such as the fact that only 10% of the population are natural somnambulists. Many clients may also WANT to stay lighter due to unfamiliarity with hypnosis, fear of losing control, difficulty with trust or being fearful of being vulnerable.
There are also challenges with working with someone in a somnambulistic state-- they don't recall the session you are limited in the techniques you can use and the techniques you can use with them are the least effective for reaching the subconscious.
I think instead of trying to force a client to go into a state that is unnatural for them-- and where we have limits to the types of interventions we can us- we need to adapt our approach to working with people who stay lighter.
in this episode I will debunk the 'get them deep" myth and provide strategies for working effectively with a client who tends to stay light.
I am offering a free one hour webinar on this topic on Oct 8 2021 from 1-2 pm Pacific on Zoom. You can register below. if you come to the webinar, I will give you tools and scripts you can use with the client who tends to stay light, going into more depth than I have in this podcast episode.

This is a question I sometimes get asked by clients and students.
We have all seen claims that a hypnotist, or organization, can help you quit smoking (or whatever) in only one session --guaranteed!
In this episode I debunk the myth that hypnosis results can be guaranteed in one session--and explain why.

In this episode I will be sharing a technique I created called Tour Of Your Life.
Because the subconscious does not understand passage of time, it can still be reacting to past events as though they were current, maintaining coping mechanisms, beliefs and behaviors that were useful or relevant at an earlier time in our lives, but are not useful any longer.
This technique helps the subconscious to understand that you are in a different phase of your life and therefore old ways of thinking, being and doing can now be released. There is also a built in opportunity to guide your client through communicating to their earlier self so as to clear up old ways of thinking that are no longer serving the client.
If you would like the script, email me at email@example.com and I ill gladly send it. No catch!
Enjoy! This is a technique I use all the time with my clients and I am sure you will find it invaluable
