I almost always begin my hypnosis sessions with the Dave Elman induction. Not just because it works, but because it teaches the client and myself to always think in a process-oriented approach. This methodology sets the framework of: now we have done step one, we can move on to step two, and so on. This is a 100% successful approach because embedded inside the training of this technique is troubleshooting, which allows you to make modifications to pass that test and move on to the next step and get into the work.

Larry Elman is the son of Dave Elman and is a Certified Consulting Hypnotist. Larry followed in his father’s footsteps, graduating from his father’s Course in Medical Hypnosis three times.

Larry and Cheryl join me today to discuss the Dave Elman Legacy Global Zoom Conference. Cheryl and Larry share how you can learn about modeling the techniques of Dave Elman and how you can customize them to your own style and the needs of your client. Larry shares some of Dave Elman’s background and experiences, and reveals why the eye-lock became part of the Dave Elman induction. Cheryl highlights the topics and keynotes of the conference and shares how you will be able to revisit the content later. Larry also shares why you should adopt a philosophy of asking why and how this will make you an excellent hypnotist.
