These sessions are meant as an adjunct to individual psycholocial or medical care by clinical professionals working within the scope of their practices. If you have believe that you have a significant psychological or medical concerns (or have been diagnosed with a mental or physical illness), we highly advise you to only use these sessions under the care of the appropriate professional.

you may find the sessions covered under our Clinical Series appropriate for your patients or clients. Within your scope of practice there is most likely a wide range of opportunities to apply hypnosis. Indeed, since 1958 when the American Medical Association accepted hypnosis as a treatment modality, there have been literally thousands of successful studies conducted by main-stream research facilities supporting the efficacy of this field. The subjects of this rigorous research has not only included psychosomatic illnesses, but has considered the positive impact of hypnosis on pain management, wound healing, and many physiological conditions such as cancer, lupus, sickle cell anemia, and others.
After the American Psychological Association approved hypnosis in 1959, similar studies have occurred in the mental health arena. The APA has a dedicated division covering the study of hypnosis.
Unfortunately, most clinical professionals have either no hypnosis training or training which has been limited to a weekend or a 40 hour orientation course, often covering a very limited set of skills. Our Clinical Series is designed to fill this void. We continually develop new titles which may be used by clinical professionals in the regular course of their practices. We intend to bring the power of hypnotherapy into the healing professions by developing high quality sessions designed to be used under the supervision of licensed professionals.
How can hypnosis and hypnotherapy work for your client?
Hypnosis is a process, which helps your client get out of their own way and allows them to select how they think. This enables them to access the hidden power of their brain – and body. Their brain has always had an ability to easily understand and organize. This capability is initially formed during the first 24 months of life. Then it is reinforced during further growth periods, which end around ages 13 and 25. However, some people have learned to suppress these abilities. Normally, this occurs when they see examples of others who are untidy or unable to organize their immediate environment and set goals. Many the challenges that a person faces in life are predominantly the results of learned behaviors. This creates the misperception that this is just “who I am.” In turn, this incorrect identity is reflected by which parts of their brain are typically activated, idled, and inhibited. The use of advanced SPECT scans of the brain reveals how energy is organized in the brains of people who see themselves as unsuccessful in life. The good news is the opposite is also true. People who are successful use their brains differently. They repeatedly activate parts of their brain, which are associated with confidence. Through repeated use, these areas become more and more powerful. This is where hypnosis helps.
Hypnosis helps by virtually shutting down the nay-saying resistance centers of the brain and accelerating the development areas, which are more appropriate for the desired transformation. Think of this as physical therapy for your brain. By denying the negative areas energy – which comes from excessive focus on what you don’t want – resistance seems to magically disappear. Then by using what I call selective thought, you can activate the areas that provide the needed resources such as confidence, organization, and the ability to envision a positive future. Simply, without developing competence in those areas you will absolutely never be successful. Think of this as attempting to run a race without having strong and health legs, lungs, and heart. It will never happen. Next the goal is to strengthen the necessary parts of the brain by repeated use. This session is designed to do just that. By helping turn off the part that this getting in the way and repeatedly exercising the required resources, you will find that your capabilities will begin emerging. Doesn’t this make a lot of sense? I recommend that you use this session at least once a day for a minimum of 21 days – and occasionally thereafter. Before you start this process, write down clear goals, which you intend to achieve. Follow this formula – and expect results to emerge! Start today.
Why are these a Clinical title? These are sessions that have been designated as a clinical title since they are primarily designed to be used someone who is working with or under the supervision a mental health or medical practitioner. Such clinicians may use these sessions to achieve a specific therapeutic response in their patients or clients. Individuals who use these titles should only do so if they are working with a clinician and/or they have access to a clinician should any distress or discomfort occur. While hypnosis is extremely safe, if the client or patient begin noticing any distress or discomfort, they should immediately stop using the session and immediately report their situation or condition to their supervising clinician. As compared to the self-help titles, clinical sessions contain several suggestions and visualizations that may be deemed more effective and more intense. They are designed to empower while illicit several responses such as enhanced self control and increased empowerment. Because of the fact that these sessions are more direct and calculated to produce very specific somatic and mental responses, they should only be used when approved by or under the direction of an apppropriately trained clinician.
