Kathleen joins me today to discuss positive value changework. She shares the origins of EMDR and its similarities to NLP. We discuss how to navigate situations when clients ask for particular techniques and how she helps her clients work through self-sabotaging values to encourage belief systems and cognitive shifts. We discuss how she conducts screening and works with sleep issues from a semantic point of view. Kathleen highlights tips for mastering conversational hypnosis and explores metaphors and their meaning. We also discuss the homework Kathleen gives to her clients and why you shouldn’t assume you still have rapport
