James Tripp joins me today to share his story and his methodology of “Hypnosis Without Trance.” He reveals how he is working with clients in a non-formal way, using improvisation and non-verbal suggestion. James describes how hypnotists can deal with perceived failure through client engagement during hypnosis sessions. He also highlights how he is harnessing what is working right now and shares his views on the roles of art, craftsmanship, and science within the field of hypnosis.

James is a hypnotist, mentalist, NLP practitioner, author, speaker, and transformative coach who experiments with waking hypnosis in different contexts. He runs exclusive hypnosis mastery programs focused on revolutionary NLP and hypnosis techniques. James also works with UK military veterans, helping them to restore their mental health and adapt back into civilian life.
