Hypnosis for Family Tensions

by Joshua Houghton on January 31, 2014

Wow – now there’s a biggie. Hypnosis for family tensions. Can you really improve the relationships within a family, just through hypnosis? I’d love to say yes, but that wouldn’t be realistic, would it? Hypnosis on its own can’t turn a war zone into a peace camp. But when one or more members of a family want to improve their relationships, then we, as clinical hypnotists, can certainly help them and give them a fighting chance of seeing some improvements.

Jeffrey Stephens Hypnosis Workshop Video Course Review

by Joshua Houghton on January 15, 2014

Over the last few months I’ve been receiving a good amount of e-mails asking me to do more reviews. A lot of my readers have told me that the reviews have really helped them filter out the good from the bad and saved them a lot of money and time by only dealing with training material that will make them better Hypnotists. So since you wanted more reviews I’m going to give you more reviews and I’m going to start it off with a review of Jeffrey Stephens Hypnosis Video Workshop.

Self Hypnosis Recordings – How To Pick The Right One

by Joshua Houghton on June 19, 2013

There are hundreds, possibly thousands of self hypnosis recordings available to buy, especially if you’re happy just to download them over the internet rather than buying a physical CD – so how can you be sure you’re picking the right one? It doesn’t really matter whether you’re reading this as a therapist, wanting to recommend the right recording for a client to use, or as a an individual, looking to choose a good self hypnosis download or recording for yourself. The answers will be pretty much the same. So what will give you the best chance of a successful experience?

Self Hypnosis – Should You Encourage It?

by Joshua Houghton on June 19, 2013

Should you encourage self hypnosis? Might that not make you redundant and lead to you losing business? If your clients can just get on with it for themselves, why would they bother to come back to you? Well, if you really think you don’t add anything to the mix and that your clients could do just as well without any input from you – perhaps you need to consider some more training, or question whether you’re in the right business! But assuming you are, let’s look at the benefits for everyone involved if your clients utilize self-hypnosis.

Do You Use Relaxation Music In Your Hypnosis Sessions?

by Joshua Houghton on June 19, 2013

I was working with a client just the other day. He was sitting very relaxed in the chair, with soft repetitive relaxation music playing, and my voice droning on… no wonder he was relaxed! Well that was fine, because the emphasis in this session was on relaxation, on de-stressing. But it got me thinking about whether using music in the background is always a good thing in hypnosis sessions.

Lucas reached out to me to let me know about a performance film he’s looking to create & produce called The Hidden. The Hidden is a one hour performance film which revolves around exploring the untapped powers of our mind, and how anyone can access them through hypnosis.

What Do You Do With “Un-Hypnotizable” Clients?

by Joshua Houghton on June 19, 2013

What can you do if your client is convinced they are “un-hypnotizable”? First you have to ask why they’ve come to you if they really believe that they can’t be hypnotized! Of course they may have been referred, or have come to you to please someone else, in which case, you’ll have to discuss with them whether they really want to change the issue they’re presenting with, and whether they really want to work with you.

Why Does Hypnosis Work So Well On Ingrained Habits?

by Joshua Houghton on June 19, 2013

Hypnosis has a great record of helping people to break those deeply ingrained habits they’ve been struggling with – stuff like smoking, over-eating, worrying unnecessarily. Most people think that to break a habit simply needs enough will-power. Build up your will and determination and you’ll be able to do it. That seems logical, doesn’t it? So presumably hypnosis somehow gives people more will-power and determination.

Written Records – Don’t You Just Hate Them?

by Joshua Houghton on June 19, 2013

I know I should be sitting here saying, very professionally how interesting and illuminating I find it when I write up my notes after a client session. But I don’t, I hate doing written records! It can be time consuming and when I’ve just completed a session it’s the last thing I feel like doing. So is there really any purpose in doing them?
