This is where most people think things really begin to happen therapeutically. Aside from waking suggestion and developing a good working relationship with your client, they are right.
Now I will begin to cover the many ways of delivering suggestions to your client for positive change during the formal part of the hypnosis session. I will share procedures and techniques that will help you to deliver hypnotic suggestions that really have an effect upon your client after the session is over. And, after all, that is why your client came in to see you.
I will let you know how to avoid having your suggestions rejected by the client just as fast as you deliver them. Yes, she is perfectly capable of rejecting every suggestion you give her, even in the most profound levels of somnambulism. You will learn how to set direct communication with the subconscious mind so your client can communicate without speaking. You will learn how to set up a "safe place" for your client to go if she experiences strong emotions that are not part of the therapy. And, you will learn two ways of doing that which take less than a minute.
Among these tips are how to start off by giving hypnotic suggestions like the pros that you have admired, and to utilize what might be the most important and most overlooked time of the Direct Suggestion Session.
Finally, I am going to let you in on some really useful techniques that compound all of your hypnotic suggestions for days after your client has left your office. And, I'm going to fill you in on what you can do if your client doesn't emerge from hypnosis!
