Jørgen Rasmussen joins me today to discuss provocative hypnosis, an unconventional approach he uses to help his clients have breakthroughs in their lives. Jørgen continues to learn and proves the effectiveness of this approach.

In today’s episode, Jørgen shares the significant influences in his life and how these people impacted his ways, methods, and approaches as a hypnotherapist. Jørgen also talks about the out-of-the-office kinds of interventions he does, the different ways that he provokes his clients, and the reason he believes that being indoctrinated can be an enormous strength in the revolution of the hypnosis techniques and community.

“I think that many clients have felt very provoked, but they felt that I’ve been really honest with them. Like honest at a level that most people aren’t willing to be.” – Jørgen Rasmussen
