Is It Possible to Have
A Bad Reaction to Hypnosis?
Can you have a “bad reaction” to hypnosis?
Having done hypnosis professionally for 20 years I’ve witnessed a lot. I can remember only a half doze occasions when someone panicked during the hypnotic induction. It was usually because the state they entered into was unfamiliar and their first response was fear. Many hypnotists might simply try another induction until they landed on one that worked.
What I’ve discovered is an very elegant way around the problem by way of The Symbology Method. The Symbology Method has been around for a while. It’s a very simple and direct imagination exercise that creates positive and rapid change at the subconscious level. In other words, it’s obvious to the subject that something dramatic has happened… and it doesn’t require a hypnotic induction. Because The Symbology Method directs the persons imagination it very naturally leads them into state of intense internal focus, also known as trance!
I consider myself very fortunate that my mentor, Jeff Stephens, recorded his version of The Symbology Method before he died. It is one of the most thorough and clearly explained description of the technique. It should be in the toolbox of every hypnotist and counselor.
Being an effective hypnotist is far more than making people feel warm and fuzzy. It’s more than just being able to say “Go deeper…DEEPER!” It’s more than knowing lots of inductions or having a huge library of hypnosis scripts, it’s about getting results. If you want to be the hypnotist people know can get them the results they want, The Symbology Method is worth learning.
