    Happy Belated Birthday Cal , from Washington State, just a short time away from opening my business. Thanks for the great video!

    Can’t get over the video clarity!
    I love having FUN too. My clients and I often laugh together and enjoy together how amazing and weird the mind can be. ERIKA great topic idea!

    Thanks Celeste and Gary, I’m glad you enjoyed the video.

    Having fun can break down barriers and can help our clients feel more comfortable and at ease, and can amplify the success in a hypnosis session – if done right. The tools we talk about in this video are powerful way to get started using these techniques.

    Plus, as Cal says it’s way better for the hypnotist too 😉

    Now, that sure was a FUN episode! 😄 Thank you Cal & Erika.
    As usual, an episode filled with some golden nuggets of advice.

    Erika, I really like your way of getting off on a happy & positve, fun note with your clients as soon as they walk in the door. Just makes sense, right? For some of us that no doubt comes quite naturally, and maybe others need to work on it some more. Either way, that initial ‘ice-breaker’ can set up such great rapport with our clients, it’s worth working on.

    Cal, I use your “any last words” with nearly all my clients (but there have been some who I know just wouldn’t get it) and it always brings a smile to their face, I love that. And, as you said, they can’t feel happy and scared at the same time, so it’s great way to start the hypnosis.

    Thanks for everything you do.

    Great episode Cal and Erika! I agree that having some fun in a professional way helps our day go faster (and more fun) but it can also really help your client get excited about their success. I especially enjoy how “fun” age progression can be as we get to explore and enjoy their lives as they’re making this change!

    Thanks for a great topic!

  6. Erika Flint, BA, BCH, A+CPHI December 1, 2015 at 3:00 PM

    Thank you Susan and Brenda for your comments! I’m so glad Susan that you mentioned Cal’s famous line “Any last Words” I recall that from my initial training and it’s always made me smile.

    Brenda, thank you for mentioning how much it can help our clients get excited about their own success! That is a feedback loop that leads our client exactly in the way we hope for them to go – and they get to take it with them when the leave for continual success. It doesn’t have to be painful, it can be fun, and the intrinsic value in helping our clients understand this means they’ll continue to learn and grow.

    I’m so glad you’re both finding that fun in the office is beneficial for your clients as well. Please report back more details as you continue to explore this topic, I certainly will!
