Richard joins me today to discuss the four secrets of confident hypnosis. We discuss why the ability to ‘go with the flow’ during your client’s hypnosis sessions is crucial and the importance of asking the right questions during your intake process. We discuss how you can modify every hypnosis method you use to become a universal method. We discuss why most hypnosis sessions do not typically go as we initially plan and share a four-step strategy for dealing with unexpected things happening during your client sessions. We also discuss how you can assign your clients with self-help hypnosis exercises, the value of using affirmations and self-reflection during your sessions, and why ultimately, all you need is a ‘because’ to determine how to direct the hypnosis session in the direction that will be most beneficial for your client.
