Take A Shot:  Learn hypnotherapy, and take your shot at a better future

Learn hypnotherapy, and take your shot at a better future 


How many times have you heard your clients say things such as If only I had...been a better student, taken that transfer at work, said yes” to a marriage proposal…” Life can pass us by faster than we might think, and when we look back, just like our clients, we have a few regrets about passing on good opportunities.


Much of the time, the unhappiness and discontent we experience comes from our fear of taking a shot at something that can be a big breakthrough, or a profound failure. We begin to worry about things like missing that shot, making mistakes, and wishing wed played it safe.


Theres a lot to be said for that life strategy. You dont risk your reputation or lose any money. However, you also miss out on a lot. In times like these, when the mental health profession is changing so rapidly, it might be time for you to take a chance on learning and doing something that changes the face of your mental health practice.


You are guaranteed to miss 100% of the shots you dont take

Even if you dont make a perfect score because you miss a shot at some kind of professional or personal adventure, the world wont end. You can always recover, and accept the wisdom you get from having the experience.


On the other hand, if you dont take a few risks here and there, youre sure to miss every shot you might have had at success, happiness and contentment. In other words, playing it safe isnt the same thing as playing it smart. There are times when its worth it to branch out and let yourself expand into a fuller and more meaningful version of who you are.


This is true of your clients, and it also applies to you as a therapist. Many times, when people ask us about hypnotherapy, theyre hesitant to get involved in a modality that seems to depart so radically from their clinical practice. The goal of traditional psychoanalysis and the various schools of therapy that came after it, is to gain access to the unconscious, and that is exactly what hypnotherapy does.


However, it does so very quickly and effectively, bringing surprising and highly satisfactory results. Its just different, and it might mean you have to take a shot at doing something thats out of the box.” Its true that there are elements of hypnotherapy that seem less structured and clinical, and practicing it can often feel like its as much art as science.

This particular feature of hypnotherapy presents opportunities for you to be more creative as a therapist. With hypnotherapy you can:

  • Help clients reprocess trauma
  • Free clients from depression and dissociative behavior
  • Discover ways to cope with PTSD
  • Uncover the triggers that lead to addictions and eating disorders
  • Help clients integrate their psychological and spiritual ways of being
  • Open yourself to a new and more holistic manner of providing therapy
