Cal Banyan's OpinionHYPNO-CONTROVERSY!

  • Are you doing hypnosis or hypnotherapy?

  • Are you a Consulting Hypnotist or a Hypnotherapist?

The main topic of this episode is based on my most recent article that I just sent off to the NGH for publishing in the Journal of Hypnotism. In this article, I attempt to make a case that whether or not we are doing hypnotism/hypnosis or hypnotherapy is not really up to us! It is up to our clients, in particular, the condition that they are coming to see us about. If it is just a normal everyday problem (like helping them to have more confidence or eliminating a bad habit) then we are doing hypnosis or hypnotism, however, if they have a condition that has been diagnosed by either a medical or mental health professional, then we are really doing hypnotherapy. I think this is going to be controversial! What do you think? Leave a comment below!

By the way, if you want to join in on the next live recording session, make sure you join www.OurHypnoSpace.com. It would be really helpful if you could leave a comment below letting us know what you think would be the best recording time for the episodes in the future. The last recording session started about 3:00 PM Pacific Time (and recorded for almost two hours, in order to record the four shows). So, we are wondering, should we keep that time, or start later? Let us know!

Your Questions and Our Answers for this Episode…

  • How should I work with someone who suffers from insomnia?

  • What is the recommended number of sessions per week and why?

    Hi Cal and Meredith

    Well… my opninion of view: Keep the start time like this recording – or at least don´t do it later because it is midnight in Denmark at that time… 🙂

    Hey – one more comment!

    Referring to whether we call it hypnosis or hypnotherapy I believe that it is necessary to distinguish between “the old fashion hypnosis” and the modern “hypnotherapy”. At least here in Denmark… Because we still have “good old hypnotists”, that only gives suggestions and don´t work with hypnotherapy.

    It is very close to my heart spreading the word about hypnotherapy here in Denmark and letting the public know how much more succes they will get if they work with their emotions and old beleifs/misconceptions etc.

    Pia 🙂

    Hi Pia – Thanks for your input on the time for the next recording session. We will definitely keep your situation in mind.

    In your comment you suggest that that we differentiate between the “old fashion hypnosis, and the modern “hypnotherapy”. I heard Ed Wonder call those who do only direct suggestion hypnosis, “scripnotists”. 😉 How do you feel about that one? Any other suggestions?

    Thanks for you input!

    Look at me! I made the calbanyan.com blog! I feel like I’m on the cover of Glamour magazine ha ha. THANKS for the happy birthday wishes from everyone! Thank YOU too Cal!

    By the way, I loved watching the podcast live! Pia and I had a blast chatting and watching the two hypno-pros, Meredith and Cal do their thing! Awesome to be there. Loved it and what a high. Doncha just LOVE this stuff!

    Kudos to you Cal, you are always ten steps ahead of the pack. Doing a LIVE show like this, again you are making hypno-history!

    The title “scripnotists” is quite good according to this discussion – though I don´t use it on my website. I try to be “clean” in my public manner. I always praise the good old hypnotists, but in the same breath I tell clients the difference between “them and us”. I tell that “old hypnosis” is like symptom-treatment and what WE do today is finding THE CAUSE to the symptom 🙂
