Discover How Adding Hypnosis To What You Do Can Broaden and Strengthen Your Practice

In this video, Cal and I share insight on how and why helping professionals such as counselors, social workers, and psychologists can use hypnosis to get results for their clients and grow their practice.


Many helping professionals share the same common misconceptions about hypnosis as the general public. We address the common concerns that helping professionals have about doing hypnosis in their office and talk about how and why you as a helping professional might want to consider adding 5-PATH® hypnosis to your practice.

As hypnotists, we share a commonality with helping professionals, and that is that we do what we do to help our clients get results.

We firmly believe that adding a hypnosis system to your practice allows for greater results and the opportunity for every single session to become a breakthrough. Even the very skilled helping professionals find that in some sessions, and sometimes even many sessions, you don’t really make a breakthrough. But with hypnosis, we have both experienced client breakthroughs in every session.

Some of the Benefits of Adding 5-PATH® Hypnosis to Your Practice

  • Hypnosis broadens your practice because you can work with more issues, such as weight, smoking.

  • For clients who are stuck, hypnosis can provide breakthroughs.

  • 5-PATH® hypnosis work is not the usual talk, talk, talk, it is exciting work to do.

  • Getting better results makes you feel good and gets you more referrals.

  • You may be able to raise your fees.

  • 7th Path Self-Hypnosis® encourages independence.

  • You are able to work on your own stuff with 7th Path Self-Hypnosis®!

What Helping Professionals Want to Know

Helping professionals want to know that hypnosis is real.

We have talked about this topic numerous times because unfortunately there are just many things that the general public gets wrong about hypnosis or doesn’t understand, such as the common questions about if hypnosis is like mind control or if getting hypnotized means, you’re going to make them “cluck like a chicken or bark like a dog.”

Just as people have asked me “If I get hypnotized, are you going to make me cluck like a chicken?”, helping professionals have asked me “Am I going to have to make my clients cluck like a chicken?”

Helping professionals are in the same boat as the general public, and many questions and concerns regarding hypnosis, such as:

  • Is the hypnosis done in the office the same as used in stage hypnosis?

  • Is hypnosis safe as used in the hypnosis office?

  • Can your clients be hypnotized?

  • Who is hypnosis appropriate for? Is it appropriate for their clients?

  • How will hypnosis integrate into what I am doing?

  • When would I use hypnosis with my clients?

  • Why is 5-PATH® a great hypnosis system for helping professionals?

  • How much training does it take to become certified in 5-PATH® hypnosis?
