Once in every man’s life…etc…

If you’re a psychotherapist or consulting hypnotist, you’ll find lots of cool ways to improve your client sessions in this episode, as we discuss content from The Architecture of Change class in Las Vegas!

Here are the show notes:

And remember…You don’t need a curved razor! What you need, Bucko, is a haircut!

But in all honesty…

Whatever happened to that old tranquility we used to know?

THESE ARE DAYS OF VICTORY!!!

…and it’s been raining like a crazy monkey…

The Architecture of Hypnosis training in Toronto is coming up! There are a few spots left, so come to Toronto and study with us. Check it out here!

Think Tank Words of the Day:   Academics   Dioxide    Diving

  • What’s Elon Musk building up there?
  • Chris attempted a “one and a half” off the tower with no skills and a predictable result…
  • Mike says academics spend too much time talking about hypnosis and not doing it!
  • Another Linda report? Not as such…
  • The “Beware Of” list! Richard Bandler couldn’t help me, and now it’s your turn! Nope. Don’t accept the challenge.
  • Some people undermine magic and mentalism effects. It’s an artform, folks! It’s not an intelligence test or a contest…
  • Build rapport! It helps…
  • What kind of medication is the person on? Acetaminophen reduces empathy…
  • Traumatized ego states often don’t want to become executive! Medications can keep the vaded ego state in the background.
  • “It wouldn’t hurt to try…” Yes it would.
  • Mike is very selective in who he works with, and so is Chris!
  • Chris teaches people to be happy! He’s not the boss of your brain…
  • Don’t diagnose people! We are not doctors…or witches.
  • Help people feel better! Tony Robbins did a great job of bringing NLP to the average person. Everyone wants to feel better!
  • Don’t deal with pain without a doctor’s permission!
  • Steven Blake and the Jacquins have given the world some amazing techniques…
  • The Mandel Model of therapy is just a model. It’s a framework through which we look at the client’s issues and problems…
  • The client is stuck in a scary labyrinthe!
  • We empower people to kill their own monsters and find their way out of the maze…
  • Put people at cause! Then the world won’t be “happening” to them!
  • We need to know what the client wants! Ask “What would you like to have happen?”
  • There’s often a trauma under the surface that must be removed first! Create a tabula rasa – a clean slate…
  • We take away negative emotions; not the memories…
  • Build those resources! Create empowering states that can help!
  • What’s next? This puts the client back at Cause…
  • Architecture of Change class is available online here
  • There must be a good fit between the client and the therapist
  • The client must give the hypnotherapist sufficient information to show they’re serious before a phone interview takes place…
  • Remember to affirm autonomy too!
  • Some people demand a phone call! They want a half-hour conversation first, but it’s not going to happen…
  • Mike looked at handwriting for someone and was asked for an iPhone!
  • You must not over-invest your time! You still need to have a life…
  • Graphology is the therapist’s secret weapon! It prepares you in advance…
  • Mike uses hypnosis in almost every session! It’s like breathing to him…
  • What have you done in the past to fix this? What has helped, if anything?
  • Michael C Anthony had to perform for drunks on New Years Eve!
  • What will happen if you fix this?
  • Gil Boyne would continuously ask: “If I go into a deep trance…” and make the subject finish the sentence.
  • Some people hug their pain! It gives them a sense of identity.
  • What does your problem permit you to do?
  • Changework can be hypnosis, NLP, New Code, 6 Step Tapping, Kinetic Shift, Timeline Therapy, etc…
  • Remember: You can always tell stories or ask excellent questions…
  • Check your work! Make sure you’ve helped the person, and James Tripp is excellent at this.
  • You can Future Pace or set up ideomotor signals to check your work!
  • Make sure the client is congruent and always calibrate!
  • You might use the 6 Step Tapping and the Triple Warmer as homework…
  • Clear up one major issue at a time and help the client build momentum…
  • Word of mouth is a great way to get new clients. Get testimonials!

Empowering Question: Ask yourself what sort of architecture does my present state remind me of…and what sort of building represents the empowerment I desire…and how will I create it?

The Metafive: The three sons and the three ships
