Often when a client comes in they are focused on everything that's going wrong in their life

But as hypnotists it's important to create an environment for success for each of our clients. We don't want to make suggestions based on what they don't want to happen in their lives, we want to suggest what they do want. We want to help them imagine success.


Turning a "Don't" Into a "Do"

One way to work with clients who come in with plenty of "dont's" is to ask them to imagine the exact opposite of what they're currently experiencing:

If you weren't so stressed, what would you be? or If you weren't so upset, how would you feel?

Another approach is to get them to imagine what feeling good is like:

What types of things do you do you do when you are feeling calm or peaceful? or ask them to put an ending on this sentence : I know I'm feeling calm when _________.

Helping our clients imagine these outcomes can help to quantify what success can be like, and create milestones that you can work to accomplish. Once a client is excited about what they can achieve, we can work with techniques like age progression to imagine a future scenario where they are successful to get them energized, ready to go, and happier than ever before.

Don't let your client get stuck in the negative, help them to embody success by having them imagine what success looks like, sounds like, smells like, tastes like, and feels like using powerful hypnosis to lock in the change and keep them on a healthier, happier path for the rest of their life.


P.S. NGH Convention

I gave two presentations at the National Guild of Hypnotists conference in August. The NGH Annual Convention is a great chance to meet other hypnotists face-to-face and to find out the latest and best techniques! Hope you can join me at the convention next August in Marlborough, MA.
