Overview

I work with normal people to help with normal problems in daily living. I do not independently work with medical or mental disease and I do not “diagnose”, “treat” or “prescribe.”    I may work with issues related to a medical or health disorder but only on referral from a properly licensed health care professional.

Hypnotism is the independent use of the hypnotic arts and sciences to help clients inculcate positive thinking and the capacity for self-hypnosis. Hypnotists do not do Psychotherapy; they Guide.

Clients do not have Disorders; they may have Problems, Challenges or Issues though.

I do not Diagnose clients; I help clients do Goal-Setting regarding Problems, Challenges or Issues.

I do not Treat clients; I hold Sessions at which I Induct a client into a Self-Hypnotic State.

The Self-Hypnotic State is a state of relaxed concentration which anyone can enter naturally. Hypnotists provide their clients with instruction in how to enter this natural state more easily and effectively.

I do not Prescribe  or suggest solutions; I may Suggest ways for clients to achieve their Goals while the client is in a Self-Hypnotic State.

Suggestion is the artful use of imagination to increase a client’s enthusiasm for self improvement using Self-Help Techniques.

Self-Help Techniques are thinking strategies used by normally-functioning people to remind themselves of improvements they wish to make in their lives. Such strategies are taught by Hypnotists using Suggestion while the client is in the Self-Hypnotic State.

A common Self-Help Technique is a Regression. As used by a Hypnotist, a Regression is a review of significant or remarkable events by the client with the Hypnotist serving as a Guide.
