Hypnosis Trainings

The roots of Hypnosis can be traced back to many early religions, philosophies, meditations, and therapeutic practices, which were studied, taught, and followed in many countries, regions and eras. Probably the region that had the most profound effect on the study of Hypnosis was India. James Braid an early pioneer in the study and development of Hypnosis ….

James Braid (1795 – 1860)

Braid was a critic of Mesmerism seeing it as a supernatural theory having no basis in science. Throughout his career, he worked to refute the arguments, which ascribed supernatural phenomena to Hypnosis. Braid modified the techniques used by the Mesmerists and coined the term “Neuro-Hypnotism” which means “nervous sleep”. Braid derived the words Hypnosis and Hypnotism from the Greek word “Hypnos” which means sleep. Braid worked through focused attention and suggestion rather than a mysterious force such as “Animal Magnetism”. James Braid is generally considered to be the founder of the field of Hypnosis rather than Mesmer.

A more recent pioneer in the field of Hypnosis:

Milton Erickson (1901- 1980)

Milton Erickson was an American psychiatrist that practiced medical hypnosis and family therapy. He is best known for his unconventional approach to psychotherapy and hypnotherapy. Dr. Erickson developed a form of therapy using therapeutic metaphor and stories, in addition to hypnosis coining the term Brief Therapy for his approach to addressing therapeutic changes with relatively few sessions. He was well noted for his ability to utilize anything about a patient to assist in their change. His utilization technique included, their cultural background, favorite words, beliefs, personal history, or perhaps their neurotic habits. Erickson’s conception of the unconscious mind was most definitely not the one held by Freud. He believed that the unconscious mind was always listening; therefore, suggestions could be given which would have a hypnotic effect, as long as the suggestions resonated with the unconscious mind.

Classical hypnosis was authoritative and direct, which often creates resistance in the subject. The unconscious mind responds to opportunities, openings, symbols, metaphors, and contradictions. Erickson’s approach; however, is accommodating, permissive and indirect. A classical hypnotist may say something like, “ You are going into a trance”, whereas an Ericksonian hypnotist would likely say something like, “I would like to talk to the conscious mind before you go into trance.” Another example might be, “You could find, that as you are sitting there, relaxing, listening to the sound of my voice, you are going into a trance.” Ericksonian Hypnosis is sometimes known as Conversational or Covert Hypnosis. The NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) “Milton Model” was created by observation and study of Erickson utilizing modeling techniques created by John Grinder and Richard Bandler.

NLP Master Practitioner Trainings

The NLP Master Practitioner Training provides the student with advanced skills that create the ability to grow and prosper in every way even during difficult times. Have you ever, notice how some people just seem to prosper and live happy, healthy, abundant lives no matter how the economy does or how bad the political situation may seem to be.

Are you aware that, many people became rich as a result of the bank collapse and panic of 1929? Most people suffered greatly during the Great Depression of the thirties, but some people actually prospered and built great wealth. How does that happen? It happens, because even in the most difficult times, some people find a way to turn events into a new way to prosper.

You will find many of those people to be NLP Master Practitioner graduates.

Many people believe that hard work is it’s own reward. They believe if they work really hard, good things will come to them. In some cases, they will do fairly well, but at the cost of their overall happiness and physical well being. Wouldn’t it be better to have all the things that make for a really good life?

Some people are working to eventually retire and then they will be happy and have the things they want. You probably know some of those people, don’t you. Wouldn’t it be better to, have all the things that you want, now?

We live in times that are increasingly perilous. Time are a changing, and not for the better. Our children are looking at a future with dwindling resources and an increasing population fighting for those resources. Wouldn’t it be a good idea to be the person who can prosper when others can’t.

I know that, you know that more hard work and dedication are not going to get you where you want to go. I see people every day working harder and going nowhere fast…

The secret to having a fulfilled and abundant life is to be the master of your Destiny. To be adept at Creating Your Destiny™ rather than being controlled by it. Mastering the NLP Master Practitioner skillset gives you the tools that you need to have the life you want, happy and prosperous.

NLP Practitioner Certification Training – Why would this benefit me in the present and coming years?  What benefits would I gain in becoming certified as a NLP Practitioner?  Would it be useful to have the ability to communicate in a way that empowers you in your career, business, and relationships?

Neuro Linguistic Programming has developed and grown tremendously over the last few years as the best and most powerful technology for change and empowerment.  NLP techniques allow a person to change old behaviors that are not working well for them for new behaviors that totally empower them.  One is now able to replace one’s disempowering beliefs and internal dialogue with beliefs that are positive and powerful.  NLP allows one to totally master their thoughts and their life.

Success in all that you do can be easier than failure or mediocrity at what you do in life, IF your beliefs, inner dialogue, and internal programming are congruent with what you really want in life.

Which path do you think would be more powerful, Mind Mastery or Mind Servitude?  If, you take control of your emotions and your mind’s thinking processes, you can take control of your behavior.  Powerful behaviors and responses in daily situations/interactions make a huge difference in your perceptions and the perceptions of people that you meet and interact with daily.

An example of how this would affect your success in relationships could be…

You see a very attractive person at the bus stop.  Because you believe that you are very sexy, desirable, and generally a very attractive person, you walk over and tell the person of interest (POI).  “You know, you appear to be a very interesting person, and I just had to come over and speak t o you…”    The POI smiles and says that you look vaguely familiar and a conversation starts and continues for several minutes. When you have the ability to generate instant rapport with a complete stranger, meeting people becomes extremely easy, even if you’re not a major extrovert who is running around talking to everyone at the party…  You might…  See how this could be a good thing in meeting someone that you might want a long term relationship with and perhaps marry.

In business, you might walk into a meeting room and the negotiators on the other side smile and walk up and introduce themselves.  One or both feel that they have known you for some time and start asking the usual resume questions (where you from, where did you go to school, etc)  The negotiations go very well and your boss is very pleased with the contract that you just negotiated.  The opposing team is likewise smiling because they feel that they also did well in the negotiation.  You can find that…  Your ability to negotiate good contracts gets you a big pay raise and a promotion.

How does one go from a lonely person with no one to come home to or share one’s life with… to a person with a great relationship?

How does one get the negotiators on the opposing side so warm and agreeable that they seem like good friends.  They like you and your proposal, resulting in a really great contract which the boss just absolutely loves?

Let’s talk about some of the Technology that empowered you to get those results:

  1. Instant Rapport – You learned how to create instant rapport (liking – agreement – trust). You are skilled at matching and mirroring another’s body language, and voice tonality.  People (and animals) like those who are most like them.  You learn how to use body postures (unconsciously) which very closely match others, so that they develop an immediate liking and trust of you.  Because you’re trained in NLP, you know the importance of tonality (38%) in rapport and communications and you find that knowledge and skill very useful.  You likewise know that 55% of your communication is in your body language. Your awareness of their body language and your training allowed you to match and mirror the negotiators.  The visual element of matching and mirroring has an immediate positive impact.  The third part of communication is the words that we use to describe an experience.  In your interactions with others, you hear the words they use.  Their choice of words give you an insight into how they think.  Words were found to be only 7% of the meaning of the communication (according to a study on communications).  Recognizing the words they chose to use and responding with the appropriate words, because you were able to hear their preferred Representational System in the words they chose.  Your careful choice of words allowed you to enhance the rapport further. You do not have to be talking to another person face to face.  When you learn NLP, you will learn how to obtain rapport quickly even over the telephone.
  1. Sensory Acuity – Whether you are just talking to another person, coaching or negotiating with a client,  or perhaps sharing an intimate moment with someone special, it is important to know whether you’re communicating effectively. Isn’t it?  To communicate effectively, you must be able to observe and perceive the minute changes in a person’s physiology, tone of voice, and energy level which may indicate a change in their internal thoughts (self talk), and/or emotional state.
  1. Representational Systems – People process the information coming into the minds differently using the five senses. People process that information using a preferred “Rep System”.  The five senses are the “Rep Systems) that are used to process the information.  People have a preference in which Rep System they will use to process the information.  You may want to discover how to identify which Rep System is person prefers, so that you can match this Rep System and create instant rapport and agreement.
  1. Learn how a person thinks, not what they think, but how they think.  This is very useful in developing greater creativity, flexibility, learning, and agreement.  In sales and negotiating, wouldn’t it be useful to know a persons Buying Strategy?  Would it be useful to know exactly what to say to make a person say yes to your proposal, to sign on the dotted line?
  1. Language Patterns – The words that a person uses indicates not only their personality characteristics, but whether they are empower or at the mercy of events in their life.

a.      Learn to identify a person’s personality type by the words that they use.

b.    Learn how to choose the words to use that will build that instant rapport and trust which makes communication and interacting with people so much easier.

c.       Learn how to challenge and overcome objections quickly and easily.

d.    You could, discover how three questions can help you to reveal very specific information about a concealed subject (which is some cases could be a presenting problem).

  1. Anchoring – A technique in NLP for creating/linking a stimulus and a response.
  1. Learn how to control your emotional state (rather than be controlled by it).  Can you…  just feel how sweet that could be?
  2. Learn how to set up a specific stimulus which can be linked to a specific desirable emotional state. Eg. You could create an anchor which would take you from Procrastination to Totally Empowered and Going For It!!!  Everyone could use a way to eliminate Procrastination, couldn’t they?
  3. Learn how…  you can link strong personal resources with your ability to access those resources almost instantly.
  4. Learn how… you can drop out of an unwanted or “bad” state into a desirable “good” state almost instantly. That would be really good, wouldn’t it?
  1. Strategies – A mental sequence of thought processes which result in a specific result.  Strategies involve everything we do:  eg. Love, Hate, Decision, Wealth, & Poverty to name just a few.
  1. Parts Integration – Eliminate inner conflict which gets in the way of your obtaining the excellent results that you would like in your life.
  2. Swish Patterns – Quick fix for changing minor undesirable behaviors, and negative states.

These are just a few of the powerful techniques you will learn to enhance your communications and influence.  You may find, your have an increasing curiosity about NLP and how it can greatly empower you.  You could find that incredible desire and passion to learn how to be the best at what you do…
