Hi, I'm Debbie Catz. I'm a certified clinical hypnotherapist here in the San Francisco Bay area. I have a masters degree in social work. To learn more about this you can visit my website at www.norcalhypno.com. And now I'm going to help you understand the simplicity of hypnosis. So the first thing you want to do is you want to know what you're going to be using the script for-- what is the behavior you're going to change and what is it you're trying to do, and then you want to find the appropriate script. There's many, many scripts on the internet-- some cost and some do not. Some are free. And then you also want to be aware of who your subject is-- who is it that you're going to use the hypnosis script with. If it's somebody who thinks a lot, whose mind is always going, who's going to be questioning the process, then you'll want a script that is for somebody who is like that-- like a mental confusion script, and you kinda trick them, go in the back door. Kinda trick them into getting into hypnosis. But always using a soft voice when reading a script, reading it slowly and if the script directs a person to do something, you remember you're talking to the subconscious mind which is the biggest part of the brain, 90%, and you want to give the directive, give the thing they're going to do first and then do it. Watch that they've done it. Don't continue on with the script until you've seen that. And if they haven't done what you've said, like, allow your eyes to close down, if they haven't done that, then give it a few seconds and do it again. See, you always want to make sure you're giving the complete directive because you're talking to the subconscious mind which is very literal, and it's only going to respond to what you're telling it to do. So it's really assisting you in doing that. And of course, having always having some soft music in the background can be helpful, putting the person into a comfortable chair, recliner, or a nice soft couch where they feel comfortable, get them pillows before you start. So remember, a soft voice, slowly talking. Some quiet music, making sure your subject, your client, is relaxed and then you can achieve so much. Help them to relax and just enjoy it and have fun. It's not rocket science, it's really quite easy when you have a good script.
