How to Gain Experience without Working on Clients and More!

Here are some of the hypnosis questions that I answer:

  • How do I gain experience without working with clients?

I also “spill the beans” on my old “secret project”, and let you in on my own health and fitness secret and that of course, is Isagenix. Call us right away to see how you can benefit, like I have.

    Hello Cal, this podcast made me think about role-playing and how it can help people develop their skills. I would like to volunteer my services as a guinea pig role-playing clients for 5PATHers who would like some practice. I think this would benefit me in order to help prevent burnout, and I could also learn from seeing how other folks are doing things. Plus I am secretly a drama queen deep inside, and would have fun playing the role of clients using composite profiles and anonymized responses during the process.

    Here is what I’m thinking: I could use my conference call line for the practice calls, and setup a wordpress website that shares the upcoming practice date/times, and people could sign up, and choose “difficulty level” of client I would be playing (receptive, cynical, nervous, etc.) to match their skill level and provide a challenge. The main goal would be development of the “think on your feet” hypnotist skill.

    Emphasis would be on running the processes within 5PATH, not inductions, since they are boring as heck after a while. Afterwards, there’d be a brief debriefing — not about “I would have done it that way…” (since nitpicking and analyzing someone else’s approach could go on forever), but instead focusing on identifying any of the real Big Mistakes you mention in your podcast.

    I think this would best be done thru conf call instead of something like Skype because itd give nervous practicers the relief of being able to peek at a script (oh the horror!) or notes if they have to..

    What do you think? I would be happy to do this for 5PATHers, at least on a trial basis, mainly because I think it’d be fun and mix things up a little. Let me know if you think this’d be interesting and I’ll setup the number and the site. At the same time, would make it clear that these are practice calls, should not be used as a substitute for formal training, and are not officially endorsed by you.

    Long time viewer (at least a year), first time commenter. This podcast by far is the best in the field of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy. Being newer to the field myself, I am eager to learn anything I can. This particular episode was chock full of some great tips that will only stand to improve what I am doing. Thanks for providing this service to aide us all in being the best in this field.

    Best Regards,

    Rich Walkden

    This is my first time on your site and I gotta say that I love the podcast. Very interesting information that I found to be quite helpful. I am a novice hypnotist but as long as I’m able to access information like this I doubt I’ll be a novice for very long. Thanks!

    Hi Cal
    I loved this pod cast because it really helped to answer the big question “what do I do after my training in order to gain the confidence to do the work?”.
    I already have stage one correct, the excellent training part.
    I will be having the very best training in the Universe soon because I am training with you Cal in March:)
    Your teaching methods sound great because retaining lots of information has been a problem for me, I learn by feeling and doing, and was relieved to hear checklists are allowed.
    The role play I think will be very important not just from the point of view of being the therapist but also to experience regression first hand. Like when I sold paint I had to try the paint in order to believe in selling the product. I have experienced pain relief through self hypnosis first hand so I know that works.
    Cal I have been reading your book the secret language of feelings and I have learnt so much. I was eating for distraction and was even falling further down the spiral of flustration and feeling anxious without even realising it. Since reading your book I am eating healthy, taking my green drinks (I would love to know more about the Isagenix when I come over). I have noticed an interesting thing I can see visual images in my head again, I have not been able to do this for a while (unless in deep meditation and it was becomming difficult to achieve even then) and I think it could be connected with toxic food. Because I have wondered how I would experience positive hallucination if the visual screen in my head was all dark. Perhaps it clears with deeper states because I know I dream.
    I have some of Gerry Kiens Dvds that I love watching over and over and I am reading the books you have talked about by Dave Elman and Roy Hunter. So now I’m going to draw a face on my pillar (like Wilson in the film Cast Away). I very much look forward to meeting you all in March. Best Wishes Adriana

    First off let me say, we LOVE getting all your comments!

    We know that about 100 videos are viewed every day on this site, but sometimes it is difficult to really “feel you guys” unless you leave a comment for us from time to time, so THANKS!

    Adrian – I’m so looking forward to seeing you in class in March! It is going to be an absolutely unforgettable experience. It will surpass your expectations!

    Drake – Thanks for checking out the podcasts. My primary goal every time I put together one of these videos, or any training program, is that I want it to be something that I wish I could have had access to earlier on in my career. I’m so glad to be of help.

    Rich – Thank you so much for praising our work. Like I said above to Drake, we just want to provide something of value to you and everyone in the profession. We so appreciate comments (praise or criticism).

    Steve – Thanks for you comment. I think you are probably our #1 commenter. And as always, your input is thoughtful. I admire your perspective and inventiveness. I recommend that you also write up your suggestion for doing practice time on the 5-PATH group on Yahoo.
