    Enjoyable video again Cal. Yes, these dramatic hypnosis sessions are great for publicity but it is down to all of us to put it in perspective to clients as results do vary. It`s very much a partnership between client and therapist. Love the idea too about children doing chores at home to pay for their hypnotherapy sessions. Gives more of a value to the sessions for a child and this is important. Kind Regards, Michael

    Michael – Thanks again for your comment. It is always nice to know that someone out there is watching. 😉

    Very best wishes for your continued success,

    Cal, Elronn — I think stage hypnosis is great, because it gives your client a starting point for discussion, and any starting point is better than no starting point! We just have to remember to be affirming rather than argumentative. “Will you make me cluck like a chicken?” “Only if you can’t do it already, and you really want to.”

    Love the podcasts. Agree about Dave Elman as the Hypno-Grandpa. (I’m a big fan of Leslie LeCron as well.)

    I totally agree! I always love to make light of the state hypnosis discussion and clarify it as much as possible if there is any confusion. It’s all about having an open mind at the end of the day, especially before they even pick up the phone:)

    I ditto you both.  🙂
