Hypnotism for Hypnotherapists
On November 17th 2007 I recorded my Group Supervision Session, in front of an audience of more than 30 fully qualified hypnotherapists. The resulting DVD lasts about an hour and three quarters and you can buy it for £40.
Here's a clip from very near the beginning.
There were three segments; clinical hypnotism, hypnotherapy and group experiments. Subjects demonstrated in the first two include:
Rapid inductions (Wrist Lift and Fingers)
Original deepeners (Garage, O In Hypnosis, Underground Extension)
Gross Suggestion (Blank Mind and Wipe)
The COPE Eduction
Phenomena on show include:
Hallucinations (positive and negative)
Whole body levitation
Here's some feedback
I received the DVDs last Tuesday and I have enjoyed seeing a hypnotist at work. I am sure that those present could see the difference between hypnosis and relaxation, and that when achieving the hypnotic state their patients/clients would be able to overcome their issues so much more easily . I myself learn a little more each time, whenever watching your videos and I would recommend any hypnotherapist to buy these DVDs. They give more insight into the hypnotic process. Congratulations on a job well done.
Barry, very good work.
It really helped me to reduce my induction time from my usual 8-10 minutes to very short time, it also increased the quality of control on the client mind.
More than your techniques the value for me was the concept of an immediate opening of a direct unspoken channel with the client.
It worked strait away… thank you.

An elegant demonstration of an almost lost art.
I've just finished watching your DVD.
Yet again, I've been impressed by your no-nonsense, keep-it-simple approach.
Not even NLP (as I’ve been trained) is that simple when it comes to inductions!
Thank you for the many insights and, above all, the reminder of a refreshing attitude.
As Richard Bandler said several times on my NLP trainings, "NLP is an attitude." As you made abundantly clear, attitude is vital.
The DVDs were enjoyable and educational to watch, Barry.
Incidentally, it's interesting how your attitude matches what Bandler taught me, but your style and wording are so different, almost diametrically opposed in some cases. It lends strong weight to the idea of the importance of "intent", whatever the hell that means.
Loved the DVD, thanks – I’ve played it over & over, partly for the techniques, but mainly for the approach. I have found two things you said & showed have really made a difference to my practice. Firstly, treating the patient rather than the problem (that’s quite a paradigm shift coming from a medical background), secondly, giving the patient what you intuitively sense they need, rather than following a script.
However, just before you do buy this amazing DVD, you might want to think about buying my CHiPS DVD instread and getting Hypnotism for Hypnotherapists include for free.
