Can Hypnosis Clients Give You Too Much Credit for Their Success?

Can A Client’s Gratitude Backfire and Limit Success?

How to Transform Client Gratitude into Greater Success for Them!

I’m back with Erika and we have a very significant program for you. I really think that this is a special video! It’s all about gratitude, how to use it, and how to avoid its dangers! It is all here on

This is something that is just not discussed enough! There are ways you can use your clients’ feelings of gratitude that they are experiencing for the help that you have given them and turn it into something that enables them to experience greater success!

Space of GratitudeWhen they are in this space of gratitude, it is the prime opportunity to ask them “what is next?” With that, you can move them into working on other issues that will make your client’s life even better.

We also reveal some of the pitfalls that you as a helping professional can experience if you don’t shift that gratitude over to ownership of the transformation that they have just made.

Watch this video as we reveal an insider secret, an “emotional alchemy” that is amazingly transformational, how you can move your clients beyond simply no longer experiencing painful feelings from their past such as fear, anger and guilt to actually helping them to feel grateful for those painful events of their lives. I give you the process to go from hindsight to foresight! Then give you a painful example of how it helped me in my life.

CAUTION: When clients give you too much credit for what changes have been made, sometimes this can undermine their future progress. You see, if they stumble in the future then they can put that on you as well. I also cover how secondary gain can work into this as well. Your clients need to own both the success and times when they are not being so successful…and so much more.

Here are a couple of links for you for 7th Path Self-Hypnosis® and The Secret Language of Feelings so you can learn more about these important concepts and processes.

Now let’s talk about your future…

    I’m always amazed at how powerful gratitude really is, and when we can use it in a way – as a catalyst – to empower sessions with our clients we can help them achieve greater success not only for what they originally came in for, but for every aspect of their lives. I use the techniques we discuss in this episode all the time and am so happy to be able to share them here!

    Thank you Cal and Erika for a few unique perspectives on gratitude. I especially appreciate different sections where you mentioned the client giving you all the credit (and therefore all the power for long term success of the sessions rather than them having the power!). Some interesting perspective there! When I have a client who gives me too much credit for their progress (especially without recognizing their own courage and hard work in session), I do what Cal suggests- reminding them that I’m the guide on the path, but they are the ones who did the work to transform. I like how that empowers them to continue their journey!

    Thank you Cal & Erika for another interesting & helpful episode.

    Erika, great tips on what to say to those clients. I’ve been fortunate enough to receive gratitude & it has been difficult sometimes to actually have the client believe it was mostly up to them, even after telling them. Your example & advice is perfect. I’ve written it out and will now go practice with Miss Pillow until I get it down pat. 😉

    I just love the attitude of gratitude!

    It is so true as you both said, hindsight is a wonderful thing, and if we really look, most of us can see the positive in what was originally perceived as a negative event. And Cal, your comments on foresight is powerful too. In fact, if I had decided to continue with my psychological internship instead of becoming a Hypnosis professional, my theoretical leaning was toward positive psychology which places a strong emphasis on gratitude (empirical evidence on it’s efficacy) and resilience, which is really all about foresight in my opinion. Your story was a prime example.

    I’m really Looking forward to the upcoming teleconference on AR too Cal.

    As usual, thanks for all you do.
