1. First, is an attitude and state of mind.
2. Secondly, is the use of hypnotic principles when choosing your words and framing your ideas.
3. And third, is a congruent performance – that is to say your mind, your body language, your tonality, and what you say – everything must come together at one and the same point.
Over the course of our 12-CD audio programme, you’ll learn everything you’ll need to know in order to be able to do this, on your own, in any setting.
Now, in the rest of this CD, we’ll be looking at how the whole course has been structured; how each CD has flow of information designed for your ideal and best learning experience.
Then, we’ll look at the actual content that you’ll be learning over the course of these 12 CDs.
Next, you’ll discover what hypnosis is not. And finally, what hypnosis is. We’ll then reveal what the 4-stage protocol is, so you already have a clear idea inside your mind, of what you want to achieve.
Then we’ll have some examples of the kind of things you’ll be capable of at the end of this programme.
Now, let me just say straight upfront: Some of these examples may look or sound a little bit complicated right now. And that’s okay. You haven’t taken the training yet. This is just to whet your appetite as to the kind of things you’ll be able to do when you study over at the Academy Of Hypnotherapy.
Finally, we’re going to give you some exercises. So, right from the very beginning, at the end of this very CD, you can begin the process of learning Conversational Hypnosis all for yourself.
Now I’d like to talk to you a little about how this CD programme is actually structured. In a moment we’ll actually be looking at the content of each of the CDs. But that’s for the next session. In this session, I want you to focus your mind on how you’ll be learning – how the information has been packaged for your learning ease.
Well, the first thing we’ve decided to do is to look at hypnosis, or Conversational Hypnosis, as a series of topics that you can master one by one. That way you can have skills that you build up over time. So, on each CD you’ll find a certain topic, or range of topics that we’ll address, bit by bit, in order for you to grow your own skills.
These topics will include things like inductions, conversational inductions, the foundations for hypnotic language, and trance processes you can use for influence and persuasion. Now, when you drill down into each CD, you’ll find a
similar structure flowing throughout, which will make it more convenient for you to learn, and for you to understand the information that’s coming your way.
First of all, we’ll start with a general discussion of principles involved with that particular topic, so that your mind can actually begin to acclimatize and understand what it is you are trying to achieve, and what you’re aiming for.
