Rick Green joins me today to discuss what it means to be confident in our process with clients and how we can achieve that confidence. He explains how using skills from a previous career or life experience can be useful in your practice and shares how he incorporated hypnosis techniques and strategies into his trainings while working with law enforcement. He also shares how he uses confidence in his practice to help his clients feel at ease and trust that they are in a safe space.

Rick runs a private hypnotherapy clinic called Changes Ahead Hypnosis and is the founder of Hypnosis for Heroes. He has been a law officer for thirty-seven years with experience ranging from undercover work to being named Captain. He has been interested in hypnosis for many years and even used some hypnotic techniques when he taught in police academies.

“We do not give ourselves permission to be confident when we start out.” – Rick Green
