Ten Keys for Successful Age Regression Work

I just love Fridays! And, of course, that means we get to post another Cal Banyan’s Hypnosis, Etc., with Meredith Locher, hypnosis and hypnotherapy training video program!

Today, we start a whole new video training series on age regression entitled, Ten Keys for Successful Age Regression Work. I expect that this series will take up about 5 or 6 episodes, so keep checking back and tell your hypno-friends!

Before we get into the serious stuff, we talk a bit about Meredith’s dog and now she is considering doing some EFT with him. See link below to learn more about EFT. Leave comments below to let us know what you think about that!

Okay, now on to business… Here is the graphic that Meredith and I refer to in the show, Understanding Age Regression.

Understanding Age Regression

Key for Abbreviations on the Understanding of Age Regression Graphic:

  • ISE: Initial Sensitizing Event

  • SSE: Subsequent Sensitizing Event

  • BISE: Before Initial Sensitizing Even

  • ICT: Informed Child Technique

  • GU: Grown Up

  • FS: Future Self

We get things rolling with an explanation of what age regression (AR) really is. Then, we go into how it can be used to help our clients. We also talk about how the Affect Bridge Technique is so useful, and some of the other age regression techniques that you will want to know about. We also talk about when you should use AR.

I also give some insider tips, tricks and techniques related to AR, which will help you to see why it is such an important hypnotic change technique. Here is a hint, AR done properly can lead to permanent change for our clients because it is an insight technique.

Getting Started with the Ten Keys for Successful Age Regression Work

After doing a quick overview of the entire AR process, Meredith and I start going through the Ten Keys step by step.

1. Successful Hypnotic Age Regression Key #1: Proper client preparation, induction, deepening and testing. Here we discuss how client preparation, testing and convincing (Phase I of 5-PATH®) is so important to your success. Since I have covered this information in great detail in two previous series on the topic, I’ll just provide you the links to those videos.

2. Successful Hypnotic Age Regression Key #2: Using the correct type of AR:

  • Affect Bridge, Symptom Bridge, Cognitive Bridge, Somatic Bridge and Date/Time Bridge.

  • When to start with one type of “bridge” and switch to another kind (another insider tip, trick and technique for the hypnosis pro).

  • Meredith gives a great example of how and when to start off with Date/Time Bridge AR and switching to Affect Bridge.

Next week, we will continue to go through the keys. I expect that we will average about 2 or 3 keys to doing successful age regression work per week.

    Excellent presentation. Is 5 Path and 7 Path ever taught in the Washington DC area?

    Hi Steve – Thanks for your complement! We love the feedback. I don’t have any plans to teach in the Washington, DC area in the future. However, we do have some 5-PATH and 7th Path Certified Trainers not too far away.

    are you thinking to make a session in France ?
    Just see your video podcast and i love it, even if my english is not good

  9. Cal Banyan, MA, BCH, CI, DNGH August 1, 2013 at 4:07 PM

    Sorry, I have no immediate plans to come to France. But who knows. If there are enough people who want to be Hypno1%ers maybe I can come over there to your beautiful country and teach.

    Thanks for the comment.

    Thanks Cal & Meredith for another great episode!

    I’m on the second round of episodes now and really needed this update on AR after a couple of ‘difficult’ clients who had trouble connecting to their feelings.

    This is a fantastic reminder of what to do.

    Thanks again for everything you do.


  13. Cal Banyan, MA, BCH, CI, DNGH January 28, 2016 at 2:44 PM

    Hi Susan,

    Thanks for your comment. We are very happy to be able to help you and others around the world in this way. As we master age regression work we lift the whole profession!

    Thanks Cal and Meredith,
    I just had my first 5-PATH client and this podcast series is invaluable. It all means so much more once you start seeing clients!

    Many Thanks,
