Make Your Words Surgical
with the Precision Hypnosis Course

Be confident with the most complex or resistant clients by gaining a deep understanding of the psychology of persuasion and advanced hypnotic skills

Client giggling herself into hypnosis

Client giggling herself into hypnosis

Since you first learnt hypnosis, have you ever felt that there must be something more out there? That perhaps you could expand your communication skills to help more people more of the time? That there may be some ‘secret way’ to become highly skilled with hypnosis?

There’s nothing worse than knowing you could help a client if only they would go into hypnosis properly. Or the frustration of knowing how to help someone if only they could ‘absorb’ the idea you’re trying to get across.

Singing is more than just shouting with a tune

Sadly, because much hypnosis training delivers a one-dimensional theory of hypnosis, graduates are left feeling under-confident in their hypnotic abilities.

So many hypnosis schools subscribe to the old perception of hypnosis as ‘softly spoken orders’. That’s like saying singing is just shouting with a tune. Real hypnosis involves a deep understanding of the fundamentals of psychology and communication.

Targetted creativity

Learning how to use your words surgically will give you a whole new approach to hypnosis that will put the joy back into using hypnosis to help people. Every hypnosis session will become a creative journey that, while being colourful and fun, will be therapeutically laser-guided.

With the right approach, hypnotic phenomena become easy

Would you like to be able to confidently elicit hypnotic phenomena such as arm catalepsy, hand levitation, time distortion and amnesia? And just as important, understand just how these can be useful in therapy?

One area of hypnosis that we regularly get questions about is hypnotic phenomena. The majority of hypnotherapists are under-confident about their ability to elicit phenomena with their clients.

The uplifting thing is, if you know how to approach hypnotic phenomena, with a couple of key language tools the whole process becomes easy and pressure-free.

Make your hypnosis a scalpel, not a hammer and chisel

At the heart of Precision Hypnosis lies the ability to know what naturally compels people’s interest. By utilizing natural human attributes, you can become a compelling and persuasive communicator. People will be naturally drawn to listen to you as you weave hypnosis into your everyday communication – so you can influence every human encounter for the better.

What sort of things will you learn on the Precision Hypnosis course?

We were once asked at a workshop for the ‘secret to the inner circle’ of hypnosis. We laughed at the time (it was a long time ago!). It is clear now that there are 2 types of hypnotists. Those who are skimming the surface and having moderate success, and those who deeply understand the fundamentals of hypnosis.

You will become one of the second type. Here are some of the tools and techniques you will learn:

  • How to use a rarely taught technique called seeding – this is what master therapists use to dramatically increase their success rate; it’s invisible to the untrained eye.
  • The ability to induce rapid and deep trance states.
  • How you can hypnotize someone just with your body language and tone of voice – you’ll never work from a script again once you understand this!
  • Key phrases that instantly trigger a hypnotic response.
  • How to feel utterly confident in your abilities as you hypnotize, and how to project that confidence to your client and infect them with it.

Trying to convey what this advanced hypnosis course will bring to your own experience of hypnosis is a little like trying to tell a good home cook what their cooking will be like once they’ve trained with Gordon Ramsay. It’s not that you’ll just learn a few more recipes, you will see food and flavour in a whole new way.

A whole new perspective, not just new recipes

  • Bypass conscious resistance effortlessly and get your clients where they need to go quickly, with the minimum of fuss.
  • Gain a reputation as a language artiste who can perform effective therapy at a dinner party as easily as in the therapy room.
  • Shape your own mindset to make hypnosis so much easier – so your clients effectively hypnotise themselves.
  • Learn how to use the hidden power of your own expectation to ease your client into hypnosis.

Experience the difference changing your own mindset makes

Hypnosis becomes so easy when your mindset is right. Precision Hypnosis will create in you a paradigm shift which will revolutionize your experience and enjoyment of using hypnosis – and your success rate.

  • Go beyond ‘close your eyes and relax’ and enter a world where hypnosis merges invisibly with conversation to create a heady mix of deep rapport and unconscious change.
  • Induce hypnosis in your clients at will, without the normal ‘signposts’ of trance.
  • Learn language skills that always automatically make your therapeutic ‘next step’ obvious.
  • Rise above the need for that ‘special place’.

Underpinning any effective hypnosis is effective psychology

Hammers are handy things, but if you try to use one for cleaning your teeth, you’re going to end up with tooth problems of one kind or another. Hypnosis is an essential tool for any therapist (and every therapist uses hypnosis, whether they know it or not). But the psychological tools you use are just as, if not more, important than your hypnosis skills:

  • Mind-blowing new research that shows how suggestible everyone really is – including you. Possessing this information will give you supreme confidence to use hypnosis to influence and persuade.
  • Why spending half an hour having a chat about your client’s problem doesn’t help most clients at all, and what you could be doing instead.
  • Why metaphors are hypnotic and how they can slip ‘therapeutic Trojan Horses’ into everyday conversation.

Deep knowledge of how people work that will enable you to see the underlying patterns in problems

When we train hypnotherapists, we tell them that human psychological problems are really very simple, mechanical things. (It’s the people that are complicated ;-)) The right knowledge about how problems work can make therapy much, much easier.

  • The truth about how people make decisions and what effective therapy really changes in people.
  • How to evoke positive emotions conversationally.
  • Two simple, but amazingly powerful ways to magnify the responses you elicit.
  • How you can easily create your own stories to influence and change.

Small changes with massive effects

The course will focus on giving you concrete, useable tools that you can implement in your very next session. We want you to be saying “Wow, what I learnt on Precision Hypnosis is really working!” …And to be telling all your therapist friends too ;-) Tools like…

  • How to make someone’s problem dissolve in the space of a conversation.
  • Help clients make use of their “observing self” – an innate resource that can free people from problems in minutes.
  • See the underlying blueprint behind presenting problems.
  • How to use pattern interrupts to destabilize a client’s problems.

Your flexibility with hypnosis means you can work effectively with most people

If you’ve read about Milton Erickson, you’ll know about the ‘utilization technique’. That is, using the client’s own unique characteristics and preferences as active ingredients in therapy. Once you’ve finished the Precision Hypnosis course, you will be infinitely flexible with how you use hypnosis to motivate and move people. That’s because you will learn:

  • Two easy-to-make changes in your language that can connect people to their resources and detach them from their problems.
  • The real reason master hypnotists use hypnotic phenomena like arm catalepsy, and how you can do the same.
  • How you can speak directly to someone’s unconscious mind without sounding weird!
  • How to hypnotize confidently when your client does not want to close their eyes.

We hope you’ll never want to train with anyone else again

What will I learn in each session of the course?

Session 1 – How to be more persuasive

Mark and Joe will talk you through new research that shows how suggestible everyone is – including you. Knowing this information will give you the confidence you need to use hypnosis much more elegantly and conversationally. You’ll learn the most effective ways to build deep rapport, not just through mirroring and matching people’s body language, but ways you can build rapport verbally, even in a recording. They’ll also be teaching you a powerful and rarely taught technique called ‘seeding’; a way of indirectly building positive expectations and beliefs in clients that support the change they want. This is something that master therapists use to dramatically increase their success rate, but it’s invisible to the untrained eye.

Session 2 – How to be fascinating

You will learn about the true nature of hypnosis, how it relates to the REM state that we go into when we dream, and how it relates to the sense of being fascinated and transfixed by someone’s communication.

You’ll learn how you can hypnotise someone just with your body language and tone of voice, and in everyday conversation. They’ll be explaining the key phrases that instantly trigger a hypnotic response in people and how you can make all your communication more fascinating and suspenseful. They’ll also be covering the reasons why spending half an hour having a nice polite chat about your client’s problem doesn’t help most clients at all, and what you need to be doing instead.

Session 3 – How to evoke powerful states

Mark and Joe will teach you about how fundamental emotions are in the way we think about things and the way we make decisions and how if you don’t shift people’s emotions, their thinking will often remain fixed. You’ll learn how to evoke positive, resourceful emotions in people conversationally and three powerful ways to intensify and utilise these resources to create change. You’ll also find out the secrets to how the famous hypnotist Milton Erickson used stories and metaphors and how you can easily create your own to influence and change people.

Session 4 – Splitting and linking

You will learn the foundations of creating lasting therapeutic change and how all hypnotic and therapeutic techniques come down to two things: splitting and linking. Splitting is a way of detaching a person from their problem so that it just doesn’t feel like part of them any more. Linking is a way of connecting people to their resources and linking those resources to the future situations where they’ll need them. You’ll be learning ways to use your language and gestures to have a problem dissolve in the space of a conversation and to leave people feeling much more resourceful in situations that would have once caused them problems.

Session 5 – Become a master hypnotherapist

Mark and Joe will teach you how to create any hypnotic phenomena – time distortion, amnesia, anaesthesia – with confidence and ease, and they’ll be explaining the value of hypnotic phenomena and how they can amplify your work. You’ll learn how to confidently speak to someone’s unconscious mind and ways you can do that naturally in everyday conversation. You’ll find out the reason why most hypnotherapy involves closed eyes and deep relaxation, why this isn’t always necessary to create change, and why it can be a valuable part of a session. And finally, you’ll learn how to put all of these skills together to become a truly great therapist or communicator.

Here’s the detail on how it works:

  1. You complete the payment process and get immediate access to the course materials, including a welcome video from Mark, and access to the comments section where you can introduce yourself to your fellow delegates, and to Mark and Joe.
  2. You can begin Session 1 immediately, during which you’ll learn about a powerful and rarely taught technique called ‘seeding’.
  3. You listen to the audio lecture for the session and watch, listen to or read the supporting materials, complete a short test and exercise.
  4. You move on to Session 2, and so on through all 5 sessions.
  5. As you go along, you ask any questions you have in the comments boxes you’ll find on every page, or save them up for the monthly Q&A calls.
  6. You continue through the course in this fashion until you have completed all 5 session tests.
  7. You receive your certificate of completion and confirmation of 12 CPD hours/points earned.
  8. You continue to have access to the course materials online.
