Tracy joins me today to share her views on setting appropriate hypnotic expectations to help clients overcome their pain, insomnia or anxiety. She promotes the benefits of working with mentors to build up your skill set and get prepared for practicing clinical hypnotherapy. She also describes how she attracts clients and how the power of referrals between hypnotherapists has allowed her to focus on her niche.
“We have to be clear that we’re not promising a cure or an anesthetic that’s perpetual. Making sure that those client expectations are aligned with the fact that it’s a process. – Tracy Barrett Adams
