Why Bad News in the World of Hypnosis is Not Hypno-Armageddon

Happy Hypno-Friday everyone! I am back with another free hypnosis training video here on

Since the last few episodes were Elronn only, how about some Cal only episodes! That’s right, I am back and since I know you missed me I am going to give you my full attention. In this episode of Cal Banyan’s Hypnosis Etc., I discuss some recent bad press that the hypnosis profession has received and why hypnotists shouldn’t worry when this happens.

NOTE: I got mixed up on the dates of the current certification course and when this video would be published. In this video, I say that the class starts on the following Monday, which is incorrect. The class as of the publication of this video started on Monday, a few days ago, so you can’t get into the current class. But, the next class is coming up in November! And of course, the Week of Power Advanced Course for already certified hypnotists and hypnotherapists is coming in August at the NGH convention. Okay, now on with the show!

Here are the hypnosis topics I discuss in this video:

  • Did hypnosis cause a person to commit suicide?
  • Does hypnosis cause someone to go crazy?
  • Should hypnotists worry when the hypnosis and hypnotherapy profession gets some bad press?
  • And More!

    Hey Cal,

    I am so glad you addressed this. My students were discussing it in my class and of course it’s come up with my hypno-buddies. So, I am going to play this for them.

    Hypnofixatist, now how would that be abbreviated HF? LOL! Nice to see the HI Cal episode!!!

    Hi Celeste – It is always great hearing for you. Thanks for your comment and input. I hope your students and hypno-buddies like it.

    Another great podcast, Cal.

    As you mentioned, different professions have different spoken and unspoken rules and guidelines around this issue of the dual relationship. I often have met people who are friends as well as patients of their doctors, dentists, hygienists, laywers, etc.
    Some organizations have set limitations on how much time must elapse between the end of treatment and the go ahead for a social connection. Often it is two years, sometimes I’ve seen one year, but I think the APA standard is never. Given that kind of spread, what do you think would be a reasonable time period for our profession?
    This is a very tricky issue for hypnotists living in very small communities. Would you advise them to go focus on going out of community to look for clients?
    Loving all your podcasts,
