The goal of the hypnotherapist is to help clients to alter their perceptions realistically, so that they can use their potentials effectively to change self-limiting, delusive and self-defeating patterns of thought, feeling and behavior.
There is no easy way to become an effective hypnotherapist. There is no single theory to memorize and apply with every client; there is no list of particular skills to master that can be used in every situation; there is no mystical alteration in consciousness that will provide universal truth overnight. Effective hypnotherapy is not just special techniques such as voice inflections, word games,magical scripts, metaphors or anecdotes. It is a total commitment to being a hypnotherapist in all aspects of life and not just a feeble attempt to act like one during office hours. It is the painstaking accumulation of detailed and accurate observations and related skills. It is the willingness to participate in the hypnotherapeutic process oneself and to learn from direct personal experience as a hypnotic subject what hypnotherapy is all about and what the tool of hypnosis can accomplish when used by a well-trained, experienced and skilled hypnotherapist.
With Respect to all who aspire to help.
From the forthcoming book,
The Practice of Clinical Hypnotherapy" by Gil Boyne"

Nice commercial Gil, but just kidding. You are absolutely correct in what you say. We need to "practice what we preach." I read this forum about two to three times a week and and am amazed at some of the questions peope ask, and even more astonished at some of the responses. I can safely say that Hypnodoc and yourself have given some very good advice and positive comments to those who pose a question. I've been practicing hypnotherapy for about seven years now and have just about seen most of the problems people come up with. The best treatment I can give is trying to bond with the client and earn their trust and respect before beginning a session. It works quite well, but the most satisfying accomplishment I get is knowing the treatment worked. I'm not in this profession for the money. I am in it because I love helping people and trying to enlighten the world that hypnosis will work if the client is willing to let it work.
Anyway, sorry for rambling, but I agree with your statement about knowing firsthand what hypnosis feels like and being able to understand exactly what a client is going through. I love learning whatever I can about our field and keeping up to date. With leaders in the field such as yourself, hypno-Doc, and yes, even Anthony, although, very opinionated, at times, I feel this forum has alot to offer from the knowledge and experience you offer to people and I thank all of you for being available.

Hi Bob, It sounds as if you have the right stuff! A passionate commitment to the work first. The rest will follow. The primary prerequisites for successful hypnotherapy are:
The client's conscious commitment to change and subconsious emotional desire to change. Secondly, the relationship that develops in the therapy room between the client and the therapist. Not only in the first session but in every session. After a few sessions when the client is about to leave the office and suddenly stops and says
"I just told you today, some things I have never told another living soul", you know trust has been expressed.
They are now willing to more fully reveal themselves without the fear of judgement or critical evaluation. In short, you have created a "healing environment". It is not achieved by doing something
it comes from the client's discovery of who you are.
With Respect, Gil Boyne
