Train to be a hypnotist.
Could you hypnotise anyone – anywhere?
I spoke to someone who had train to be a hypnotist the other day, they didn’t know what I did for a living so I asked them what hypnosis felt like. Well – I was given a very nice business card, told that I would have some relaxing music played whilst I lay down on a couch and they would talk to me in a very calming and relaxing voice. “Do I have to be relaxed?” I asked – “Oh yes” they said “And you need to be able to visualise as well…”
What a load of old baloney ………….. Give me a corner of a room and a few minutes be it in a pub or an office and I will be able to hypnotise the vast majority of people within a few minutes.
I have been in the hypnotherapy business for over 12 years now and have a wide range of diplomas and certificates ranging from CBT through to NLP and of course Hypnotherapy. So why teach others? Is it for the money?
Well, no it’s very little to do with the money to be honest. You see despite having literally dozens of Diploma’s and Certificates there are only 6 or 7 are really worth anything in my opinion. I have been on training courses where the students have come to me to ask questions rather than the trainer which was both awkward and embarrassing not just for me but the trainer too. However, there’s probably a reason why people made that choice……
The problem with so many training courses is that they just don’t teach you to train to be a hypnotist i.e. the hypnosis part of hypnotherapy which is a bit odd considering that hypnotherapy is essentially therapy whilst in hypnosis.
Equally there are some trainers will concentrate on the hypnosis and have very little idea on the therapy side of things. Getting someone into hypnosis is essential but is only a part of the story. Think about an operation in a theatre for example, the hypnosis is the incision, it needs to be in the right place and to the right depth, the main work goes on inside that incision – that’s the therapy. The skills that I teach are getting the incision in the correct place, doing the work and repairing the wound.
Some schools will tell their pupils that they will earn mega-bucks and it’s all about the money, they make promises such as seeing 30 – 40 clients p.w. every week – really??
Think about it, not all clients can make daytime appointments due to work commitments so a lot of clients prefer weekends and evenings, sessions are around an hour with (if run ethically) an allowance for any run over time, add to that time to make notes, write letters etc. Oh then of course there’s things like marketing, consultations, CPD, supervision, business planning etc.
