The 4 Most Destructive Emotions and the Beliefs That Fuel Them

Having been in the field of Hypnotherapy and Hypnotherapy Training since 1997, I have seen countless people suffering needlessly because of their own minds.  People are filled with false beliefs and negative emotions which ruin their lives, their relationships, and their health.  The vast majority of people come to hypnotherapy for issues that are completely resolvable because it is the mind that is causing the problems, and that very same mind can be easily transformed with the right tools and the right understanding.  Read more here about how our false beliefs and negative emotions can be resolved through Interpersonal Hypnotherapy in a way that is truly worth understanding.

When Hypnosis Sessions Do Not Go As Planned 

In a thorough Hypnotherapy Certification Training, students need to not only know powerful protocols to induce positive change, they also need to know how to handle situations when they do not go as planned.  We work from the model that it is not the client’s fault if they do not succeed.  Telling a client that they are not hypnotizable or that they are resisting is a very irresponsible way of being a professional in our field.  Read more here about why it is so important to get proper training and to know how to work with challenging clients in creative ways.

Does Hypnosis Always Lead to Transformation

People are becoming increasingly aware of the power of the mind and how to tap into it with hypnosis.  More and more people are becoming trained as Hypnotherapists and we are honored that our hypnotherapy school is regarded as one of the major leaders in our field.  However, despite the incredible results which come from hypnosis, we should not consider this to be a panacea, but rather approach it professionally by educating the public properly about who we are, what we do and how transformation occurs using hypnosis.  Read more here about holding realistic expectations about the use of hypnosis and how it transforms lives.

Exploring the Depths of Trance

We use the word “trance” to describe the hypnotic state, yet what exactly is a trance, how deep does the rabbit hole really go, how do we induce this state, and how do we know when clients are actually in this state?  Understanding this one keyword can truly help us to know what hypnosis is all about.  To begin, we can define hypnosis as a natural, yet altered state of mind, where we have communication and responsiveness with the subconscious mind.  Trance is therefore just another way of referring to the altered state of hypnosis, and there are different ways to measure this.  Read more here as we explore the details of the trance state, known as hypnosis.
