3 Things That You Must Do to Ensure Our Future as Professional Hypnotists

I’m back with a very special guest, Dr. Rev. C. Scot Giles, whom I believe to be one of the smartest and most dedicated individuals in our profession of consulting hypnotism.  Scot is a Board Certified Chaplain and a Certified Instructor with the National Guild of Hypnotists.   His hospital-affiliated practice focuses on medical hypnotism and he is especially well-known around the country for his work with cancer patients.   Scot is a member of the Advisory Board of the National Guild of Hypnotists where he carries the Legislation and Governmental Concerns Portfolio.   Scot has received most of the awards offered by the Guild, including the Rexford L. North Award for Lifetime Achievement and the Ormond McGill Chair Award.  In 2006, the NGH elevated him to the status of a Board Certified Diplomat. He is among the first inductees into the Order of Braid, an international Honor Society for Hypnotism.

In this episode of Hypnosis, Etc., Scot covers the topic of “The Future of the Profession of Hypnotism and Hypnotherapy; Challenges and Opportunities.  He gets right into it providing us with a very important look at how other professional organizations such as the AMA and APA have attempted to eliminate the practice of professional hypnotism by those who are not licensed in their particular professions.  He gives you an inside look at how the National Guild of Hypnotists and his efforts have removed much of that threat, and as a result, we are now a separate and distinct profession.

Next, you will discover what you can do in your practice and in your marketing of your practice to help insure the future of our profession.

As a kind of bonus, Scot shares insights on a very practical service that hypnotists can provide in a medical environment that is of great assistance to patients and their surgeons.

Finally, and most importantly, Scot lets you in on the 3 things that you can do as a professional hypnotist to help guarantee your continued practice of hypnosis and hypnotherapy, as well as to help our profession to grow.
