If You Aren’t Doing Insight Hypnotherapy, You Are Missing Out

How to Handle Client’s Reactions to Such Fast Change

How to Assist Clients Who Are Not So Insightful (Including Children)

Erika and I are back!  Man oh man, do I wish I knew this back when I was just getting started.  I love this episode.  Let’s get right into it.

Why bother learning insight-based hypnotherapy techniques such as, age regression?  Because insight is our most powerful way to bring about permanent change for our clients.  Getting permanent change means more and better success for our clients, and that, of course, means more referrals for us.  Watch this video and we let you in on more secrets for doing great insight-based hypnotherapy.

Part 1 Review

In Part 1, Erika Flint and I covered:

  • How to Provide Life Changing Insights to Your Clients Every Session
  • How to Use Insight to Provide Your Clients with Permanent Success
  • Questions to Ask Your Clients While In Hypnosis That Generate Powerful Insight
  • When to Use Insight to Remove Old Emotions, and When to Validate Old Emotions Which Then Leads to Transformational Insights

If you haven’t seen it, go and watch Part 1 first.

In this episode about insight-based hypnotherapy we take is all this up a very important step further.

master-hypnotist-certificateQuick Note!  Come See Us At the NGH Convention!

Erika and I are both giving talks at this year’s National Guild of Hypnotists Convention.  Erika is going to do a workshop on how to get clients using the Internet.  I’m going to teach how to use the Universal Script in a one hour talk and teach a two hour talk on age regression.  But, the BIG deal, is going to be my post-convention, 2-day Age Regression Certification Course.  I hope to see you there, you will be absolutely amazed.  Here is the NGH phone number, call to make sure you don’t miss out, (603) 429-9438.  Tell them “Cal sent you”.

Case Examples from Our Sessions

Erika shares a real life client case in which her client experiences a life changing insight during an age regression session.   I expand on it by letting you in on a case that I cover in my certification courses, where everyone watches me work with a client named, Michelle (I have permission to use her name).  Both are great examples of how the misperceptions of the child have affected the person’s whole life negatively and how quickly and permanently that can all be fixed with hypnotic insight.  In these cases, the insights were received through age regression work.   I reveal a great deal about how this works in a very concise step by step manner.

Why Clients Don’t Really Self-Sabotage and How to Show Them That

Erika asks me a question about self-sabotaging.  I think I surprised her with my response because I don’t really believe there is such a thing as “self-sabotage”.  Watch the video and see if I make a good case for my stance on that.  Agree or disagree?  Leave a comment below.  I turn this into an example of how insight can change a belief that a client may have about “self-sabotage” and completely turn that around for them.

Surprise!  It was that easy!

Erika continues to question me, first talking about how fast insight hypnosis works, and how surprised clients are in how fast it works.  After such a session, our clients may sometimes say something like “Wow, I can’t believe it.  I can’t work that fast.  It can’t be that easy!”  I go on to explain why this is.  After all, your client may have been struggling with an issue for years and years, and now after a short time with you the problem is gone.  Interestingly enough some clients will even deny that the problem was “that bad” now that it is behind them, and how you can handle that.

Assisting Your Clients to “Get” the Insight

Erika asks me about the situation where the insight is more obvious to you, the hypnotist, and not so obvious to the client.  This is a really great question.  Not all clients are as insightful as others.  For children and adults that are not as insightful as most, you can coach them into “getting” the insight without leading them.  Watch the video and I’ll show you how simple this can be.

How to Use Age Regression to Direct Suggestion Hypnosis for Permanent Change

We wrap the video up by sharing how invigorating doing this kind of work is for us, especially when we take those insights revealed in the process and use the “segue technique” to permanently attach suggestions to them.

5 Reader Comments to Hypnosis Training Video #386: Part 2, Hypnosis as an Insight Generating Therapeutic Process that Enables Permanent Change

    I think one of the neatest things about this episode is when Cal points out that ultimately, this is not “hard work.” Having the tools to help the client come to these insights, knowing the questions to ask and how to help the client with the answers that they come up with makes all of the difference. I know very often my “long days” are fueled by the joy that I have in helping people really change their lives. This is a great discussion, I know that I’ve really been using the concept of “insight based work” with prospective clients- explaining to them that I can help them by helping them understand themselves, rather than just spitting information out to them. Most clients see that their sessions are “work,” but they feel so much better after, it really changes their life that quickly!

    Brenda thank you – you’ve captured so many important points from this episode. I also tell my clients that the hypnosis is insight based – this really helps them understand that the work we do will be not only be very powerful and necessary – but that it comes from within them. It’s their insight, and in the end it tends to have a domino effect, where everything lines up and falls into place for them.

    This was a great series…dare I say, very insightful – 😉 thank you Erika & Cal.

    Like you & Brenda, I also find that telling clients we are going to do insight therapy and that I will be helping them learn more about themselves using these insights is by far easier and a more powerful explanation, that they just seem to ‘get’.

    I really appreciated your questions for Cal too Erika. I’ve had similar ones myself, so his answers were great.

    I am just so grateful to you all for this ongoing learning…thank you for all you do.

    Thank you Susan – We are all working to raise the profession!

  5. Erika Flint, BCH, CPHI July 20, 2015 at 2:17 PM

    Thank you Susan! You’re right, sharing with clients that the work is based on insight makes sense to them. Cal is amazing at answering these questions – and no he doesn’t know about them ahead of time either. It’s all just there in his head, based on experience which he so graciously shares with us so we can do great work with others.

    And isn’t it wonderful to be an ongoing part of this process and sharing our own best practices and insight so we can all bring our clients greater relief, faster? I think so, and so thanks to you Susan for your input because we all learn more when we share and put ourselves out there to learn and grow.
