Sometimes Small Problems Create Big Challenges for the Hypnotist

Often Clients Don’t Know Why They Are Really In to See You!

Sometimes Clients Just Aren’t Miserable Enough…

Sometimes clients who want to get over seemingly small issues can be more difficult to work with than those with much bigger problems. In this new insightful hypnosis video Brenda and I reveal the secrets to having success in these otherwise frustrating cases. And, how sometimes your clients will redefine success!

It is all here for you on along with many more.

AND now back to our hypnosis training video…

I’d rather work with a two pack a day smoker than the 2 cigarettes a day smoker!
In this hypnosis training video reveals some of the insights that you need to work successfully with the comparatively small problem. It could be the smoker who smokes one or two cigarettes a day. It could be the person who almost eats perfectly. Who is basically doing pretty well, but not as well as they might like.

The challenge to the hypnotist is that since the problem is rather small, then sometimes your client will not be very motivated to change, or be willing to undergo the sometimes difficult techniques used to overcome the issue, such as age regression work or forgiveness work.

Or, on the other hand, continuing to use smoking as an example, your client’s goals may change. They may start off as a one pack a day smoker, and as you work with them they decide to become a part time smoker or a two cigarette a day smoker! Here is why that might be okay.

We learn that we have to be flexible! We have to respect our clients goals. Some clients we may decide not to take on if they are not, in your opinion, motivated enough to succeed, even with hypnosis!

Another thing can come up as well… Our clients may only think they are coming in for what they are coming in for. By that I mean that these issues that they think they are coming in for are really “symptoms” being generated by some other more important issues that are unresolved in the subconscious mind. When those issues are resolved, their goals may change.

For example, the person who wants to stop smoking, really has an old unresolved fear from the past. When this fear is resolved he or she no longer needs the cigarette to manage the anxiety generated by this old internal fear. So he or she may then become a “casual smoker”. I explain why this might just be good for this client.

We apply these principle to other issues as well.

    Another informative episode, thank you so much Cal & Brenda.

    In many respects this podcast followed on from the previous discussion of “beginning with the end in mind” but then really expanded to something quite different. It was intriguing…

    Am I right in suggesting that the client ‘casual smoker’ or chocolate eater in your examples is probably not using that behaviour as distractors of feelings? And, that is why after completing 5-PATH they feel so much better about themselves & more in control of choosing to continue with the behaviour they originally thought they wanted to stop?

    Ed Wonder’s words really resonate here.

    Thanks again for all you do.

    Thank you Taly. It is great to hear from you. Cal

    Thank you Taly, it’s great to hear from you! I am so glad we were able to talk about this topic- it is interesting to think that people might go to all of the trouble and time and expense to come and see us, but not really be ready to make the change that they came to us to make. The idea of the “small problem” is definitely something for fellow hypnotists to be aware of so that they can really help the client on the client’s ultimate goals!

    Great question Susan, with my casual smokers that I was mentioning here, they were 2-session smoking cessation clients. I do a pretty thorough job of talking to people about why they smoke during that time, and for these people, they ultimately felt better giving themselves permission to have one when they go out with friends than feeling bad about it. Very interesting!
