Do Things Different This Year, Joining Online Communities & Tips on Losing the Numbers Covert Test

Happy Hypno-Tuesday! Meredith Locher and I will be packing your minds with tons of valuable information in another episode of Hypnosis Etc. on

In this latest episode, we begin by focusing on this year’s objectives. We are nearly a month into 2013 and we would like to know what your goals are to improve your hypnosis practice. We share our own ambitions to help you make any changes. Our goal as professional hypnotists is to lead you in the right direction so that you can become successful.

Further into the episode, we discuss how valuable it is to join and become part of online communities. By joining hypnosis groups and sharing ideas, you’ll be able to build on relationships that can help you book clients. We recommend, the first online community for professional hypnotists. We’re looking for new group leaders on topics such as NLP, Working with Children, Spiritual Hypnosis, Sports Hypnosis and more.

Later in the episode, Meredith brings up an excellent topic to discuss from her friend in South Africa. Despite her friend’s efforts and attempts, clients are having difficulty “losing the numbers.” We define what “losing the numbers” are and the process of this technique. I also explain other useful techniques like the Elman-Banyan induction. You’ll learn how to use modern techniques and go beyond outdated methods.

5 Reader Comments to Hypnosis Training Video #313: Do Things Different This Year, Joining Online Communities & Tips on Losing the Numbers Covert Test

    You may of covered this issue before, if so I have not managed to find it in the list, But I am interested in whether age regression is suitable for treating PTSD. I actually like the idea but I have been warned not to try it. I have always understood that all emotions are good and what you resist persists.
    Thanks for all your good work with this site.

  2. Cal Banyan, MA, BCH, CI, DNGH January 30, 2013 at 4:30 PM

    Hello Graham – Thanks for your question. I don’t remember if we have ever really done an episode on the topic of working with PTSD or not. From my viewpoint I can say that 5-PATH® and 7th Path Self-Hypnosis® are very effective in such cases. I have done that kind of work myself.
    However, remember that PTSD is a psychiatric diagnosis, and you need to work within the legal limits of the laws where you practice. You may have to work under the supervision of a licensed mental health professional if you are not licensed to work with these kinds of cases.
    Having said that let me also say that, there are many people who have not either been diagnosed with PTSD, or do not meet the criteria for PTSD, who you can help without being licensed. PTSD has become a common term in American vocabulary, and people may use it when an official diagnosis has not been made. In such cases people may be self-diagnosing, referring to stresses that they are now experiencing after a particularly stressful event, such as war, floods, automobile accidents and so on. This stresses can often be in the normal range, but still very bothersome. (Hence, although a bother, they do not reach the intensity or duration required for a diagnosis of PTSD.)
    When working with these people (who may be experiencing feelings of fear, frustration and so on) you are doing the kind of work that hypnotists work on all the time. If they have not been diagnosed with a psychiatric condition, like PTSD, then don’t play doctor, don’t attempt to diagnose, just help them overcome the problem. Help them to sleep better, relax, and feel safe in normal environments. If they have been diagnosed, you can still help them, but you have to keep it legal. You have to work within the limits of the law.

    We will put your question on out list for programs.

    Hi Cal and a big thank for you
    As you say, you have actually worked with people like this using the 5 path technique. Those with extreme terrors going round and round there heads.
    Some hypnotherapist’s condemn the idea of dragging poor people though their traumatic past, preferring to work without actually touching those sensitive arias. However I am of the opinion that real lasting, durable change can only really be made by putting right what has originally gone wrong. Therefore in order for a sufferer to truly overcome their ‘irrational’ fears and misconceptions, revivification in some state may be the only option.
    I am righting this because sometimes I worry that maybe I may be wrong. Putting people back through traumatic experiences may actually be unnecessary and potentially damaging unlike the option of playing it safe and keeping away from anything challenging.

    Just an other of my thoughts

  4. Cal Banyan, MA, BCH, CI, DNGH February 8, 2013 at 11:47 AM

    Hello Graham – Thanks for your comment. In addition to conducting revivification sessions via age regression being an excellent way to “deal with” or “neutralize” a client’s problem, done correctly, such sessions can do much more than just fix the problem.

    In addition to remedying the problem, as you probably already know, a skilled hypnotist can actually improve the individual’s life and perceptions of the past quite significantly, by helping the client find the positive components or results that come from negative situations from the past. This can lead to gratitude, confidence and wisdom. But when other techniques are used that are not so insight oriented then even though one my get rid of the problem, little else is accomplished.

    Thanx Cal
    And yes 5 path is the best. 
    I’m still going through these vid’s 
    a great help to learn new stuff and be reminded of the old. 
    Will have to pay you back by buying something from you.
    most likely the on-line super set when I get the money.
