Have you ever fumbled for the right words in a difficult or unique situation during hypnotherapy?

Wouldn’t it be priceless to have a resource that provided you with scripts and patter to solve many problems and unexpected events during hypnosis?

Do you know what to say when a client starts laughing or when a jackhammer starts banging on a nearby street?

Do you know what to say if a client bursts into tears or even becomes irritated claiming they are not hypnotized?

Do you know how to prove to your client they were hypnotized?

Knowing the magic words contained in this sourcebook will give you the ability to remain in control and have confidence, even during difficult hypnosis sessions.

Knowing the magic words to use will help you turn any difficulty into an opportunity to really help clients, rather than give up in despair and these patter scripts will make you a better hypnotist. But this book goes beyond just a few scripts of patter. This book will actually teach you how to structure hypnosis suggestions, compounding them and making them effective.

You will learn strategies for:

  • Using both direct and indirect suggestion
  • Turning disaster into opportunity
  • Managing abreaction and intense emotions during session
  • How to deliver suggestions without sounding like a psychic or a fortune cookie
  • How to structure effective post-hypnotic suggestions
  • How introduce stories, scripts and other tools into your sessions
