Starting in the entertainment industry, he is currently the presenter of the YouTube channel Tips 4 The Mind. As a licensed trainer for the Jeffrey Stephens Protocol, Sheila Granger’s Virtual Gastric Band, and Bob Burns’ The Swan, Rob travels the world to train people how to do direct hypnosis and street or show hypnosis.
Rob joins me today to share the strategies he uses to become more skilled as a hypnotherapist. He discusses the technical aspect of how he frames and presents change work in a short amount of time as well as how students take the hypnosis experience and eventually modify it to fit their own style. He also explains how he integrated different techniques to create his own, effective hypnotic strategy to use for his clients.
