Well the Newcastle NLP and Hypnotherapy Practice Group returns this coming February 2019 with a focus on the methods and techniques of one of the modern pioneers of hypnotherapy, Dave Elman. Incredibly effective for working with people and one of the most easy to use methods of self hypnosis.

Elman’s definition of real hypnotherapy has two very characteristic and distinct validation points. These are clear and conscience. The first is what he calls ‘bypassing the critical factor’ and the second is ‘establishing selective thinking.’

So what these terms mean is actually pretty simple. Bypassing the critical factor is giving your conscious, your analytical mind something to occupy itself. This stops the doubts, the what if’s and makes a space where your other mind can go about its business without conscious interference. This can be as simple as playing a game of pretend!

The second step is establishing selective thinking. This is having an idea, a suggestion or a reality become the soul focus of your reality. And both of these steps, according to Elman are entirely up to the person being hypnotised. Nothing to do with you as an operator, the whole responsibility is with the person being hypnotised. Of course a great deal of rapport or trust as well as being calm and relaxed are key to successful hypnotherapy.

So if you are interested in learning and compounding your skills to include hypnotism in the style of Elman and we are talking inductions in less than a minute. Learning how to create and use analgesia and post hypnotic suggestion to relieve needle or dental fear and some real deepening of the trance state do come along.
