Therapy then becomes the process of 'dehypnotising' the client from their 'problem trance'. Radical, thought-provoking, and useful.
As I was interested in business-NLP and hypnotism I always had the feeling that something was missing the issue: we do not need to bring people into a trance, they are already in it !! When we use this current trance but alter little deep trance phenomena in the background, the current trance can be perfectly used to alter the symptoms and altering the behaviour directly (i.e. Ericksons basic way of treating people).
This is exactly why a good walk on the beach is as good as a indoor NLP session in the treating room of the psychologist.
Stephen Wolinsky has put some core basics to paper here which in my view should be on the reading list of all departmental heads and CEO's, NLP-trainers and hypnotists.
It should be read next to Machiavelli's The Prince to understand the principles of people's behavior in my view.
A massive key to: "Know Yourself"
This book is all about getting better and helping to heal. The way it approaches the subject however is quite unorthodox and also very "true"...
True is a great word because of how subjective it is - a bit like hypnosis and the different takes on what hypnosis actually is.
Another truism in therapy is that the problem is always in the present...
And again Stephen Wolinsky explains this brilliantly - the trance someone is already in contains the problem or problem state. So it makes sense to work out how to de-hypnotise someone or create a more entrancing experience.
I always ask someone who chooses to work with me whether they want to focus on getting better or focusing on why they're like they are and what they don't want...
Understanding what you don't want doesn't get you what you do want.
Anchoring positive responses whilst recreating trauma is a very simple and elegant way of helping people overcome "phobic unconscious" patterns that are unhelpful and there is a nice little appendix at the back of the book outlining how to do this. It's not the only way - and it is one of many ways that is helpful and quite quick to do.
This book is a really good addition to someone's resources if they're interested in hypnosis and hypnotherapy. As a stand alone it may be a bit deep or seem slightly unorthodox, however it does stand alone once you understand the idea of de-hypnotising someone because they're already in a trance - and normally quite a damaging one...Read more ›
