Description

This course teaches you the information needed to master Ericksonian Hypnotherapy. Join over 4,000 students on this course learning from Dan Jones, one of the UK's foremost Ericksonian hypnotherapy instructors. Dan is committed to supporting students through this course. He reads every comments and replies to every question (usually within 24 hours - depending on time zone differences).

This hypnotherapy course will take you on a journey from the history of hypnosis, through to the work of Milton H Erickson, and how to do Ericksonian Hypnotherapy. By the time you complete this course you will know how to do hypnotherapy without the need for structured hypnotic inductions, without the need for hypnotherapy scripts, and without the need to just do 'suggestion therapy' hypnotherapy. You will know how to work with clients as unique, individual human beings, and tailor what you do to each person as an individual. You will also receive a Sussex Hypnotherapy Centre certificate of completion.

The course contains over 13 hours of video lectures and demonstrations, and PDF's of the lecture slides, plus there is additional information to help with learning. There is also a quiz at the end of most sections to help with your learning.

To get the most out of this training it is recommended that you take time to absorb and learn from each lesson by going and practising with friends, family and like-minded people, as well as going and observing people and reading some of the books from the recommended reading list to broaden your knowledge. Curiosity is the key to developing mastery and success. It is also good to ask questions and interact with others in the discussion areas of the lectures to get others understandings and views and experiences on different elements of the training.

The course is structured to give you an overview of the history of hypnosis before focusing in on the work of Milton H Erickson. The course then takes you through the underpinning foundations of Ericksonian Hypnotherapy before building on this with Ericksonian Hypnotic Language Patterns and structuring hypnotherapy sessions.

This course is ideal for those that are new to hypnosis and keen to learn about how to do hypnosis, for those with experience with hypnosis who perhaps use hypnosis scripts or structured inductions and just suggesting problems away, that want to develop their skill and knowledge at being able to do hypnotherapy with people without the need for structured inductions and just the use of suggestion therapy. It is also ideal for hypnotherapist that perhaps don't have much knowledge or experience with Ericksonian Hypnotherapy and want to take a course for continued professional development (CPD), or Life-Coaches, NLP Practitioners, Coaches, Counsellors and other therapists that want to learn about Ericksonian Hypnotherapy to add this skill to the therapy or coaching you already offer.

(Different places in the world have different rules around who can practice as a hypnotherapist. My view is to practice as a hypnotherapist you should undertake extensive live classroom tuition which teaches therapy and then only work with those client groups you have been trained to work with. If you are totally untrained but have an interest in learning Ericksonian hypnotherapy this course will teach you all you need to know, but I would recommend you shouldn't work as a hypnotherapist based just on taking this course. This course will still teach you advanced communication skills which can be helpful in a wide range of life situations. If you have trained in hypnotherapy, counselling, coaching, or NLP or other similar fields then Ericksonian hypnotherapy should make great additional skills for your tool-box to use with clients you have been trained to work with, and this course should also give you a greater understanding about your use of language and other skills with clients even if you aren't doing hypnosis)

Dan Jones, the course tutor, is one of the UK's leading Ericksonian Hypnotherapists with over 20 years experience. He teaches the UK's premier Ericksonian Hypnotherapy Diploma accredited by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council, and is bestselling author of 'Advanced Ericksonian Hypnotherapy Scripts' and 'Hypnotherapy'

Who is the target audience?
  • Beginners with little or no experience with hypnosis and hypnotherapy, but holding a keen interest to learn about the mind and to learn how to effectively help others overcome problems or achieve success
  • Hypnotherapists or those with hypnosis training that would like to learn about Ericksonian Conversational, Indirect Hypnotherapy
  • Hypnotherapists and other therapists, coaches, NLP Practitioners and counsellors that want to do this training as continued professional development (where your relevant organisations allow it to count towards your CPD)

This video is a demonstration of Ericksonian hypnosis. This video is to give you a taste of what Ericksonian hypnosis looks like when it is being used. This is a frequent way in which I hypnotise clients during sessions. I will start a conversation about the conscious part of them and the unconscious part of them, and how the unconscious part of them knows more than they do consciously, and is the part that I need to talk to to help them to make changes within that part of the mind. This is a very typical example of what Ericksonian hypnosis looks like.

This lecture explores the three pillars of Ericksonian Hypnotherapy, observation, utilisation and having a clearly defined goal.

The Three Pillars
16:49

A copy of the slides used in the video from the previous lecture

The Three Pillars Handout
11 pages

The 'My Friend John' induction is probably one of the most famous Ericksonian inductions The idea is that you talk about your hypothetical friend or client 'John' and describe how they were curious about hypnosis and about how to enter hypnosis and what happens as you go into hypnosis, so you explained this to them.

Your actual client is then listening along to you talking about this other person unaware that you are actually hypnotising them. What you are really doing is using observation, utilisation and having a goal (the three pillars of Ericksonian hypnosis) to hypnotise the client in front of you. So your goal at this stage is to guide the client into hypnosis, so you are observing for behaviours the client does that are related to this, like unconscious movements or times they are naturally drifting inside their mind and these are what you talk about to the client about 'John'

So you may say "So I explained...as you start to drift into hypnosis, so your breathing begins to slow down." this would be timed to match when the client in front of you is breathing out, you are using a presupposition (which you will learn about later in the course - presuppositions are words like: before, during, while, as, after, when - they are words that imply something, so "as you start to drift into hypnosis" implies you are drifting into hypnosis) to imply 'this is happening', you are using an embedded command by pausing between 'explained' and 'as' and you are using a linking suggestion by linking the first part of the sentence "as you start to drift into hypnosis," with a second part of the sentence "so your breathing begins to slow down", you are using vague language that contains very little information so they have to fill in the blanks themselves and it is difficult to challenge the comments because you don't know what 'drifting into hypnosis' feels like, and 'as you start' means even if you don't notice that you are drifting into hypnosis there could be signs a hypnotist can notice that you just aren't aware of yet so it is difficult to disagree that you are drifting into hypnosis, likewise as long as the breathing rate hasn't increased (in which case you wouldn't give a suggestion like this) the client is unlikely to be able to tell or disagree with whether their breathing has slowed because even a very small imperceptible slowing would count as slowing which they wouldn't notice.

So all you are really doing is observing the client, taking your observations and utilising them by suggesting to the client what you are observing in them that is in the direction of going into hypnosis. The use of all the Ericksonian language patterns I have mentioned above (which is all covered later in the course) come naturally out of just using the three pillars, so a simple sentence like "so I explained...as you start to drift into hypnosis, so your breathing begins to slow down" is packed with many different hypnotic language patterns and techniques.

Binds - Examples
01:28

This lecture is a demonstration of inducing hypnosis using double binds. This subject was intentionally being difficult. It is rare for subjects to intentionally be this awkward but it gave me an opportunity to demonstrate how the induction works. Usually with a compliant subject when I ask "look at the hand you think will lift as you go into hypnosis" they look at one or the other hand and then we see if they are correct. As they look at that hand they start to go into hypnosis and either the hand they chose lifts, or the hand they aren't looking at lifts.

With this subject he decided to try to catch me out by giving an answer I hadn't asked for, but this induction has that built in, so he said "neither". Which meant based on the question I asked he was saying "neither hand will lift as I go into hypnosis", he didn't say "neither, because I'm not going into hypnosis" or anything else about not entering hypnosis, so due to the double bind being to look at the hand he thinks will lift as he goes into hypnosis, he can say neither and I take that to mean he has just agreed to go into hypnosis, so the question then is to see if he is correct or not. Because he is challenging and trying to prove me wrong he is very likely to go into hypnosis without either hand lifting. The difficulty for him is that he has to maintain the fight and focus on not letting either hand lift when he is still thinking that was the induction (not realising the induction is just a double bind which includes the hands not lifting because I was only asking for his opinion about how he will go into hypnosis, not for his opinion about whether he will go into hypnosis), so to 'win' he needs to make sure the hands don't lift, but this builds up a lot of tension with the idea that they will lift so he starts becoming aware of itches on his nose and on his arm, so he reaches over (lifting) his left hand (lifting his hand with his leg) to his right wrist to scratch his wrist, then as the itching increases at his nose he doesn't want to have me 'win' by lifting his left hand OR his right hand, he enters hypnosis with his eyes open and eventually closes his eyes, and once he has 'won' and entered hypnosis without either hand lifting he then lifts his hands finally releasing the built up tension from trying not to lift the hands.

This demonstration is usually done just asking the initial question and then saying "that's right" or "that's it" and acknowledging the client's behaviours as they enter hypnosis. In this instance I gave a few more verbal double binds around eye closure and whether the subject will go into hypnosis with his eyes open or closed. I do this to give him something else to focus on and 'fight' I suggested for him to close his eyes only when he is ready, and followed this up with telling him not to close his eyes before he is ready, this set up a double bind situation, if he fought me on this he would close his eyes either before or after he was ready, if he didn't fight me he would close his eyes when he was ready, but the bit that isn't in question is that he would be 'ready', then as I saw he was doing a good job of entering hypnosis I suggested that I don't know whether he will go into hypnosis with his eyes open or closed, which reinforced my previous suggestion, so if he went into hypnosis with his eyes open he would 'win' based on my previous suggestion, if he closed his eyes before entering hypnosis he would 'win', if he closed his eyes as he went into hypnosis I would 'win'. I don't mind what he does out of these options, I am just giving him plenty of routes into hypnosis that allow him to do so in his own way, and in a way that meets his needs. I also kept all the focus on seeing if the subject is right, not seeing if I am right.

Hypnosis Demonstration: Double Binds
05:37

Learn about how commands and suggestions can be used within Ericksonian Hypnotherapy, learn how to give covert, indirect commands and suggestions in a conversational way and why this can be helpful.

All of the hypnosis demonstrations throughout this course demonstrate the use of commands and suggestions as this is the main thing you are doing in an induction, whether it is embedded commands and suggestions within talking about my experiences of going into hypnosis, or when describing to 'my friend John' what it is like to go into hypnosis, or commands and suggestions given during linking suggestions or double binds, or when working within the agreement set. So you can watch any of demonstrations from this course to see how commands and suggestions are being used.

What often happens is when you re-watch demonstrations having learnt a bit more knowledge you see more of what is going on,even during the seemingly most basic demonstration, so I highly recommend as you continue through this course you review the demonstrations multiple times because you will get more out of them each time you watch them because you will know to look for more of what is taking place.

This lecture is a PDF you will need to download

This is a full transcript of a hypnotherapy session helping someone to improve their artistic abilities. This transcript is annotated with my description of what is taking place through the session, of the techniques I am using and why I am using those techniques. This transcript breaks down a full one hour hypnotherapy session showing how I am building rapport and getting a agreement and engagement with the client (Rapport Building from RIGAAR), how I am gathering information relevant to the goal for the session and for what the client wants beyond the session (Information Gathering and Goal Setting from RIGAAR), I don't necessarily explicitly 'Agree a Strategy' (from RIGAAR) but I do state the strategy and how this is being done implicitly, I didn't see a need to state it explicitly, I demonstrate and describe how I am accessing resources from within the client (Accessing Resource from RIGAAR) and I have some mental rehearsal during the session (Rehearsal from RIGAAR).

I go into as much detail as I can to explain what I am doing and how I am using all the techniques and knowledge you have learnt during this session. The effects of this session still continue to this day with the client continuing to have improved artistic abilities. The client says his musical abilities he has developed since this session in about 2005 also came from his creativity and changes to his thinking that all developed from this session.

Summary

A summary of the whole course, discussing what you have learnt.

I highly recommend now that you have completed the course you go back and re-watch and listen to the various demonstrations, because you will have far more knowledge now of things to look for. Each demonstration contains a rich array of techniques being used so you can watch demonstrations for example about the agreement set and this time instead of watching it for how agreement is being used you could watch for double binds, or linking suggestions, or use of commands and suggestions, or for use of vague language. Each demonstration contains far more than what I was using it to demonstrate.

Bonus Lessons
2 Lectures 26:20

This lecture is a hypnotherapy session demonstration. It is an edited session rather than the full hour long session. The client wanted to lose weight, quit smoking and stop drinking cola, she achieved all of this and a decade later still maintains the results. This isn't high quality video due to its age and the equipment I had available to me at the time. I don't often get opportunities to do hypnotherapy sessions on camera with permission of clients, so I don't have any high quality recorded videos.

Students have asked if it would be possible for me to share some video hypnotherapy sessions rather than just the annotated hypnotherapy session transcript so that they can see me applying RIGAAR and using hypnosis with real therapy clients.

I have chosen this video specifically because I edited it when I was teaching a Solution Focused Therapy course to local authority staff (so I needed to minimise my mentioning of hypnosis) and as part of my editing I added in notes about what I was doing throughout the video which I thought would be useful for students here.
