I get regularly get asked if I can promise to eradicate an addiction.
In simple and honest terms, no I cannot.
I mentioned addictions in the title as an example. It can go way beyond that, but the client who wishes to be rid of an unhelpful habit or addiction must be committed to a process in order to succeed.
What I can promise, can guarantee is that I will, with the best of intentions work with my clients in order to get them to where they want to be.
I used to use the analogy of the only person I know who can guarantee a service that will alleviate ones pain/problems is a dentist. He/she could remove an offending tooth and you would never have an issue with again. I say used to as I was in need of such an extraction following an infection and once the tooth was taken to task, it left a shard behind. It is still lodged in there today and causes me issue from time to time.
So, I guess that analogy is now somewhat redundant.
The issue can be as simple as this. Hypnosis and hypnotherapy can, for one reason or another come under a cloud of mystique and wonder…to such an extent where some can expect it to be a rapid, miracle-like cure. Now, whilst I do always aim for change faster than say counseling or more traditional types of therapy I am still duty bound within the ethical framework in which I operate (non medically) to let clients know that there is still a chance that hey may not get the solution that they are seeking with hypnosis.
Of course I aim for success all of the time, with each and every client I see yet I will never guarantee such an outcome.
Use hypnosis, utilize it well and see what it may be able to do for you.
I’ve had some amazing results for clients.
