Hypnotherapist Cal Banyan in Correcting a Big Misconception about Hypnotic Age Regression and How to Make Sure the Clients Are Deep Enough in Hypnosis

How to Respond if You are Asked to be a TV Hypnotist.

Happy Hypno-Tuesday! Cal is back with another informative episode on Hypnosis Etc. In this “All Cal” episode, Cal talks about a graduate of his who recently was invited to be on a Reality TV show. He lets you in on why you should expose yourself to the media, how you should prepare yourself, or reasons why you should not.

First Cal spills his first experience being on TV for Hypnosis and how he got there. He discusses that having a professional updated website will increase your chance of being contacted, in fact that is how he was contacted. Cal mentions the importance of your professionalism. How being confident and competent in your appearance on a TV show can help your practice take off! Cal also says if you are a Hypnotist who is successful with your clients, by all means you want to say yes if you are ever asked to be on TV.

So, Cal introduces us to Alanna Jackson, who just recently was on an episode of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” where she had a session with Mama June on her fear of mayonnaise.  He explains why even though the session did not go well, it is very likely that Alanna will benefit from the exposure.

Cal lets us in on how best to prepare for being on TV and best benefit from the media exposure. Your appearance is something everyone should be thinking about when you are about to go in front of a camera, from the way the light picks up your clothes, to simply adding a blazer or sport coat to your normal off attire. Also the way your office appears should reflect the kind of professional you are.

Cal closes the episode by talking about what to do if your client does not follow instructions or cooperate during the recording of the TV program. You can’t control what will be edited but you can control the way you are perceived thru the camera. As long as you stay confident and competent throughout the session that is what will be recognized.

Things discussed in today’s video:

  • Reasons you should or should not be on TV doing Hypnosis
  • How your website can help you get there
  • The importance of office and personal appearance when being on TV
  • Two things you need the most to succeed with hypnosis on television

    I have had the opportunity to be on the air several times. My most risky and memorable was the reality show Strange Sex. I was able to help the woman with her issue (achieving orgasm during intercourse with her husband) and couldn’t have been more delighted with how tastefully the show edited the process. The woman’s husband was killed by a drunk driver a month after our session and before it was on air. I felt as though I was able to give them one final sweet gift before he died.

    Thanks Cal for the wonderful comments and being so supportive! I wouldn’t have been nearly as confident without 5-PATH training. Your the best 🙂
