Redesigning A New Approach To Hypnosis

By Scott Jansen, Conversational Hypnosis Academy. In general terms the conscious and unconscious mind communicate in a different fashion. And its our role as a hypnotist to decipher between what is conscious communication and what is unconscious communication.
What is conscious rationalizations of an issue or challenge. And what is more unconscious clues, concepts and information that we as a hypnotist can utilize in order to progress into a true master of hypnosis.
It seems that the strict guidelines on what hypnosis is, what it isn’t, how your sessions should look and how your clients will react through certain interactions, are the same idea that keep hypnotist and the like stuck in a 1 what fits all approach.
What happens if we were to almost resign a new way to think as a hypnotist ? To redesign a new approach to hypnosis.
And lastly what would our results be like if we adopted an approach that would allow us to be more freestyle.
A fashion in which we could simply design and create ( on the fly ) a different approach to every client we work with.
And to take this further to redesign our approach even when working with the same issue.
And above all how can we as a hypnotist develop a skill that could detect how to decipher between useless information and the overload of generalizations that our clients give us, and only hear actual unconscious clues that can give us all the information we need to resolve an issue thoroughly.
Conscious to unconscious communication : Redesigning a new approach to hypnosis
Lets begin with the back bone of this new redesign.
Understand the difference between information we can use and information we can not.
As a hypnotist working with a client. It doesn’t take long to realize how many ideas, categories and concepts get thrown at as the the beginning of a session.
If our first question to a client was something simple like ‘ What is the problem ” we would expect to get a generic answer.
Such as im a smoker and i want to quit. Or i have anxiety and i want to feel confident.
And while this can be the case sometimes. Others we seem to get the life story of an issue.
This is where a client has generalized their entire existence around the issue and they feel the need to vent about every scenario that involves this issue, every feeling they have, all the way they have tried to stop, all the best and worse parts of the challenge they are having.
And its usually at this point as a hypnotist where the first issue arises.
What do i do with all this information?
How do we know where to start and how do we pick out the important parts of the story they have just exploded on us?
Conscious to unconscious communication explained.
It works like this. By simply starting a dialog with a client that gives them permission to talk about the issue this is when the overload occurs.
This overload has some very important aspects and some very less than important aspects. And we as a hypnotist are now in a position where we need to understand how to proceed.
Generally speaking. Conscious information is of less value for us as a hypnotist under this analogy. And id invite you to just consider this analogy as true for the duration of this must read, so the strategies that are presented to you can give you a new look and redesign of hypnosis as the tittle suggested.
The analogy to consider is. What if our only role as a hypnotist was to put a client into trance as quickly as possible, close of conscious interpretations and gain a clear entry way into more unconscious communication?
Meaning that the less we involve the conscious mind, the more involved we can get the unconscious mind.
Why would we want this ? Well to add more lucidity to the analogy. A clients issue is unconscious. If it wasn’t you and i could consciously think through a problem, decide if we want it any more and be done with it.
But problems do not work like this. The reason we have issue is that they are located somewhere in the unconscious. (just an analogy for now)
So it stands to reason that instead of questioning consciousness about the issue and how its a problem etc. We just asked the unconscious instead.
Its only then we will really find out what is happening.
Consider a clients issue like this. A client feels or experiences a problem in there life that is unconscious. They then consciously think it through.
And assume that the issue is (XYZ). And that is where the first problem starts. If a problem lays unconscious how can we as humans penetrate the unconscious?
We cant. But we start to assume and conceptualize about what we THINK it is. Then when we talk to our hypnotist we begin to explain the issue consciously.
But realistically we are giving an interpretation. We are explaining what our issue is according to our closest assumption about what we are really experiencing.
