Hypnosis – Expectations

Published by:

Richard Bandler and John Grinder modeled people of excellence creating NLP. One of these people was the hypnotist, Milton Erickson.

What is hypnosis?

Hypnotic ImageThe greatest aid to a hypnotist is expectation.

If a client believes that hypnotist he/she is to see, will be a qualified hypnotist, then there will be an expectation that they can and will be hypnotised. This is especially true in the stage hypnotism area, as the audience attending the show, expect to see people on stage perform funny acts, and those that go up onto the stage to be part of the show, expect to be hypnotized. The main problem here is what does the client expect?

It is the hypnotist’s function to place the client in the correct frame of expectation and understanding of what will be happening. Often the client comes with misconceptions that he/she will go into a sleep like state in which they will have no knowledge, or memory of their session under hypnosis.

My Italian Translator

Published by:

Some of my first exposure to training NLP was to take place in Italy with my good friend and colleague, Alessio Roberti of NLPItaly. I remember sitting in a small piatsa in a wonderful walled town called Città Alta, the upper part of Bergamo with its rich heritage of art and history, discussing a forthcoming course.

Alessio and Phillip   

Città Alta Bergamo

I do not speak any language other than English. It is not out of disrespect of peoples tongues, just as people who have worked with me know, I am hopeless at speaking another language.

After many courses over the years Alessio Roberti has grown his company to be perhaps one of the best NLP training organisations in the world, and along with other subjects and the publishing arm, has become the successful person he should be. I am privileged to be involved with him.

One of the translators in Italy who has work with me for a number of years is Elena Martelli.

PhotoReading course in the Hilton Hotel.

Please Elena, coconut, liquorish, and toffee ice cream, all in the same cone, perhaps following a Baffu pizza.

English day 5

Published by:

Today was nearly a full day away from the office or school.

I was delivering a Mind Map and Memory course at a major communications company in Turkey. Sixteen employees finding out that they can remember 14 random items by just listening to them once, the planets, how to construct a Mind Map as originated by Tony Buzan.

Yes guys I had a burger but not from McDonnell’s, but from a Turkish takeaway.

The English session in the morning of NLP was not run, and due to the course I was running out of the school, but they the participants, had a rest.

They settled down to a lunch time session but I was not there. As they closed their eyes, my voice was with them, we played my CD of The Castle (buy it by clicking here) .

For the evening English session I took the ferry back over the Bosphorus for the installation a very relaxing time.

The drive back to my apartment took nearly two hours, much quicker to take the ferry.

In my mind as we drove back, I thought of those that were doing things I was not, perhaps being with friends eating a meal, something I cannot do, I do not have time, if I did, I would need to relax, but that is seen as not being social, or not etiquette.

Kadikoy. Another day. Care needed.

Published by:

It is still cold and raining here in Istanbul, with the high cold wind making “white horses” on the Bosphorus.

The TV crew arrived nearly two hours late, to film only a few minutes, I am very careful on what I say. A few months ago, an article appeared in a Turkish national magazine, which although not mentioning names, implied me as a trainer of NLP and a hypnotist could walk into a bank and robe them of their money.

Why am I so poor?

Also, they implied that women were easy pickings for me, so be careful. At 95, I do not have the energy to do such things, plus certain persons would murder me, and I do not like pain.

Some four years ago, I was approached by a TV production company. They asked if I could teach someone with no knowledge of hypnosis within two days to become a stage hypnotist (see http://www.c4stagehypnosis.com), and on the second night, that person would perform in front of a live audience a stage hypnosis show. Not only did I do it, but along with another twelve people. The course has been held twice a year since, producing many successful hypnotists.

Although I asked the TV production company what was the outcome they wanted from the program regarding stage hypnosis, the good points or the bad, they said an unbiased view. The program was broadcast with the title The Darker Side of Stage Hypnosis. With nearly twenty hours of filming captured, less than ten minutes was shown.

By editing, showing what is good for them, the press can bias the news to suit themselves. How was it that during the Gulf War, the British was for the invasions, yet that little stretch of water called the English Chanel gave the French a different view of being against the war. We are brainwashed.

So I was very careful what was said. Let us see the outcome next Sunday at 10am on Turkish Expo TV.

Phillip is a Certified Trainer for PhotoReading, (absorbing words at speeds of 20,000 – 30,000 words per minute, a Certified Trainer of Mind Maps (Tony Buzan), and a worldwide Trainer with Project Renaissance (Dr Win Wenger).

After many years (35+) working in the computer industry around the world for computer manufacturers, Phillip began to study and work with Artificial Intelligence and how humans collated to computers with regards to the human mind, which led to the study of Accelerated Learning Techniques, Memory Skills, and Hypnosis  and NLP.

Phillip has endeavored to learn with the originators of the techniques he teaches, working with Richard Bandler for many years, and John Grinder, the Co-Founders of NLP, plus many more great innovators.

Having being taught by Paul McKenna and Michael Breen the art of hypnosis, Phillip was approached by Ormond McGill, (The Dean of Stage Hypnosis),  and Jerry Valley to attend training for stage hypnosis in Los Angeles USA. In subsequent years Phillip promoted this training in the UK. Since that time he has given stage shows, and twice a year run training courses himself, allowing others to embark onto the profession of Stage Hypnotists. One such course being filmed by ZIG ZAG Productions, for a TV program on stage hypnosis.

Phillip appeared on was a Granada/Discovery program called Extra Ordinary People. This program has been seen worldwide. Also, Phillip was guest on Sri Lanka TV, discussing NLP in the business world. Phillip has appeared on a number of television programs, on NLP, Stage Hypnosis, and Remote Viewing. Also giving radio interviews and talks to groups.

Phillip provides training throughout the world, including, China, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, the Middle East, Turkey, Italy and the UK.

He is often retained to work with individuals for a variety of problems of a personal nature, removing phobias in one session, often in minutes, or he can as a trainer with the NGH, give hypnotherapy lasting weeks. A unique point of Phillip’s work is that he visits clients homes, rather than they visit him, often being called to travel to European countries to work.
