Working with Difficult Clients and Clients Who Wants to Run Your Hypnotherapy Sessions

Welcome to another free hypnosis training video on Nowhere else will you find so much free hypnosis information on video or audio online.

This weeks’ episode of Cal Banyan’s Hypnosis Etc. with Elronn Ferguson, is centered around working with those clients who may be a little more difficult. Elronn and I give you some insider tips, tricks and techniques for working with clients who aren’t "blow downs".

Here are some of the tips in this episode:

  • The value of media exposure for the hypnosis profession.

  • The importance of a good pre-talk and pre-hypnosis interview, especially when working with more difficult clients.

  • How to determine if your client is ready to be hypnotized.

  • What you can do if your client is not yet ready to be hypnotized (after giving them a great pre-talk).

  • What you can do when your client has her mind made up as to the cause of the problem. (Hint, don’t believe them! Don’t be fooled by the obvious.)

  • Why you should have a "Fan Page" on facebook. Become a fan of the show, (and get the "inside scoop" on the shows).

  • Does NLP, EFT and other tools blend into 5-PATH® Advanced Hypnosis?

  • And More!

    Thanks so much! I have been attracting some difficult clients recently and needed to hear exactly what you cover in this video. I’ve been allowing a client to take control but have now realized what I was doing as I look back.Knowing when to send someone on their way is very empowering so I can work with those that are open to following instructions. I wanted to send them on with compassion and your wording is just that.

    I Miriam,thanks for you comments! We love to hear that we are helping out. That is the main reason we do this so faithfully.

    With you on the Path,

    Hi Cal and Elronn,

    That was a great episode! It’s always nice to know what to say beforehand just in case difficult clients walks through the door.

    And FWIW, I think Elronn is super with his new wound up attitude ๐Ÿ™‚

    I used to take all clients, even if red flags went up.
    Not anymore my friend. It is so empowering to have control. Everytime I have taken a client I thought I shouldn’t, I was sorry. I don’t care how broke you are, don’t do it.

    I’ve had clients who were really suprised in AR when they didn’t go to events that they thought were part of the problem and got much needed relief.

    Hey Elron have you been working out or is my monitor on strech mode? ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. lydia July 12, 2010 at 12:04 PM

    Sorry about the mispells

    Hey Cal, hey Elronn, good as always, and very funny. I hade some good laughs.
    Its so important to know how to deal with clients that want to run the show, I like this quote โ€œI donโ€™t know how to do this your way, but I know how to do it my way๏Š.
    Any way reserve me a nice spot because even that I bought the 5-path 2.0 and im half done, im coming to see you live in action, I want to be a true 1%.
    See you soon.

    Hello Essac – Thanks for the kind comments about this week’s video. I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed it. I look forward to seeing you in class!

    You two always make me both LAUGH OUT LOUD and learn something. I loved, especially, the bit about how effecient 5-path is, NOT that it is the only method to become a 1 percenter, but that it was DESIGNED that way. AND how it is a great back bone for any other technique, such as EFT, NLP, EMDR, to elegantly work within.

    Cal you are going DOWN in major hypno-history!!!!

    Love you Cal and Elron!
