Hypnotherapist Brenda Titus As Erika and I get started in this video, we let you in on some “hypno-love” and also why YOU are special among other hypnotists!

Then we get right into it. Here are the highlights!

What hypnotists do that can cause clients to go to sleep:

  1. The hypnotist is talking too slowly.
  2. Too much time deepening with suggestions for deeper relaxation.
  3. The Progressive Relaxation Induction is DEAD! See video.

How to interact with the client who tends to go to sleep:

  1. You must understand that hypnosis is not sleep.
  2. Know how to recognize when your client is asleep.
  3. How to determine during the session whether or not your client is asleep or just lying there relaxed and maybe snoring.
  4. Talk to your client to see if they often have a problem staying awake during the day?
  5. Tell your clients that if they continue sleeping in sessions then you will not be able to continue working with you.
  6. Be aware that some clients go to sleep not because they are tired or sleepy, but because it is a protective strategy, operating in order to avoid doing the work of the hypnosis session.


  1. Hypnotize quickly by using instant and rapid inductions!
  2. Deepen quickly.
  3. Test and convince quickly.
  4. Use interactive techniques like the Time Tunneling Technique®!

That is it for this week!

Please tell your hypno-friends about these free hypnosis and hypnotherapy training videos. Thanks!

Let’s do GREAT things together!
Cal Banyan
