NOW DOING SKYPENOSIS!
What the heck is that? It is doing a remote hypnosis session on Skype. So you can now experience hypnosis in the comfort of your home or office. Skype is a free software download to make video calls on your computer. And the Skype to Skype calls are free too. All you need are earphones or buds, a microphone and a web cam. It would also be nice to have a comfortable chair. Though a couch and a yoga mat have also been used. This technology has been used successfuly all accross the U.S. and to forign countries alike. Although most of my clients that use Skype are Hypnotherapists that don't have a local resource. Skype works for everyone that needs help.
                  WHY HYPNOSIS
Why hypnosis? After all, therapeutic hypnosis is usually little more than a guided daydream. In fact most people do self-hypnosis without knowing it. It is done with their "self talk". I'm too fat, I'm too lazy, I'll never amount to anything. And of course this self talk is voiced with emotion that creates an analog-mark, this makes the suggestion more powerful.
So why should I go to a hypnotist if I can do hypnosis all by myself? It is easier with help. A therapist will formulate the suggestions in a way that will help make the changes you want. Untrained self-hypnosis can sometimes make things worse. Just for the record always use positive self talk. Focus on your solutions, not your problems. You don't get what you want. You get what you focus on.
 
                          PTSD?
Wouldn’t you like to know?
I know I would. I would like to know what works, and what works best for helping people with PTSD. There are as many sub-modes of hypnotherapy as there are hypnotherapists. But there are different modes. If the sessions are videoed then the sessions could be peer reviewed. The effective mode videos could then be used for training. They may also help to separate mode effectiveness from the personality of the hypnotist. The confidence and expectation of the hypnotist could have better results with poor mode than a poor hypnotist with a better mode. The video would show if the session was up to the standard of his peers.
What I would like to propose is a review of modes.  Each mode that participates would work with five clients for three sessions each. The academic supervisors would then make a summery judgment whether or not a hypnotherapist is helping their clients. The video could then be reviewed and peers of that mode would decide if the session was conducted correctly. At this point the study could be refined.  The variation among the five would show how large a sample would need to be. On going evaluations between sessions would determine the number of sessions that are needed.
 
Hypnosis is effective
Hypnosis is found to be beneficial in treating PTSD for two reasons. One, the symptoms of PTSD are similar to the phenomena experienced under hypnosis. And two, hypnosis has been shown to reduce symptoms of PTSD. Studies have shown that people who have PTSD are highly hypnotizable. Hypnosis allows people to access memories of the event under controlled circumstances. Then, these memories can be restructured so as to prevent future symptoms of PTSD. People with PTSD can be taught to use self-hypnosis so if a re-experiencing of symptoms occur, they can reduce the effects (Spiegel & Cardena, 1990).
A 2005 study tested the effect of hypnosis and cognitive behavioral therapy on participants with post traumatic stress disorder. Sixty-seven people with PTSD completed the study. Participants were divided into 3 groups. They received 6 sessions of CBT with hypnosis, CBT only, or supportive counseling. The CBT with hypnosis group used exposure, cognitive restructuring, and anxiety management in relation to the traumatic event. The hypnosis session included a hypnotic induction and suggestions to help the participant fully engage in the exposure of the event. The CBT group worked on exposure, cognitive restructuring, and anxiety management during their sessions.
Results of the study showed that people in the CBT with hypnosis and CBT-only groups showed less symptoms of PTSD immediately following treatment and at the 6-month follow-up compared to the group that received supportive counseling only. In addition, the group that received hypnosis reported fewer re-experiencing episodes than the CBT-only group. This study shows that hypnosis has a profound effect on people suffering from PTSD (Bryant, Moulds, Guthrie, & Nixon, 2005).
 
Note: The hypnosis was used to help the client to ”fully engage in the exposure of the event” instead of releasing the feelings and emotions and replacing them with calmness and serenity.
 
 
EMDR
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), developed as an intervention for the treatment of trauma and anxiety by Francine Shapiro, Ph.D. (1996), similarly has as its goal the facilitation of a transfer of traumatic data from the cortical right hemisphere to the left hemisphere where this data (inputs) can be analyzed and integrated by the cognitive functions of the left hemisphere, so that recontextualization of the traumatic events may occur and the negative physiological and affective arousal may be concomitantly neutralized or modulated. Despite an essentially behaviorist intervention protocol, EMDR also utilizes the attainment of a state of heightened awareness, or collaborative structured dissociation. This facilitates the orientation of the traumatized client' s conscious mind toward "revisiting" traumatic memories and the cognitive restructuring process, while simultaneously modulating the physiological arousal and associated affect of the client during evocation of traumatic memories. PET scans of persons diagnosed with PTSD who are being treated with EMDR have demonstrated the transfer of traumatic data from the right to left hemisphere during the PET process, whereas the PET scans of PTSD clients not being treated with EMDR during the PET assessment demonstrate no comparable transfer of traumatic data between hemispheres (i.e., no cognitive processing) (Van der Kolk, 1994).

I copied this from the Banyan Hypnosis Center web site. This is also the modality use by Gerald Kein of Omni Hypnosis Center. This mode may be considered heavy-duty hypnosis. It is very effective, but not as gentle as other modes.

Here is an overview of the 5-PATH® process.
1. Preparation, Testing and Convincing Phase The purpose of this phase is many fold, but Phase I, is designed to accomplish these main goals: bring the client to a point where he or she is reliably hypnotizable and able to consistently reach an appropriate level for hypnotherapy, improve his or her confidence that hypnosis will be useful, and bring about some immediate results so that the client will be motivated to continue in therapy.
In order to accomplish these goals, the client is carefully prepared for the first session by educating the client regarding the hypnosis process. Suggestions to be used are authorized by the client in advance. Then an appropriate hypnotic induction is used. Depth of trance is tested using a hidden test (so the client does not experience failure if sufficient level of hypnosis has not been obtained yet). Any additional deepening is done to obtain an appropriate level of hypnosis, usually somnambulism. After the level of hypnosis has been tested, another test is given so the client will be aware of and that he or she knows he or she has become hypnotized. Then the agreed-upon suggestions are given. The client is then emerged from hypnosis and receives at least two additional tests/convincers for post hypnotic suggestibility, such as time distortion and sensitivity to a color.
2. Age Regression Phase This phase of the hypnotherapy process utilizes one of the most powerful techniques available to the hypnotherapists. But many hypnotherapists don't feel comfortable using this extremely useful and versatile hypnotherapeutic technique because of past difficulties in attempting it. Or some fear using it because of lack of training.
Because the client has experienced the first phase of the 5-PATH® system, Direct Suggestion, he or she is now more hypnotizable than before. The first phase has greatly increased the probability of success of the client having a revivification during age regression (an actual reliving of the experience, rather than merely an increased memory or hypermnesia).
Typically, age regression is directed at both uncovering the initial sensitizing event which started the problem, and also, the client is able to gain insight into the issue. Appropriately accomplished, this is one of the most powerful techniques a therapist can use. Then additional suggestions for change are given because this will cause a reorganization of the subconscious mind, at which time they will become hyper-suggestible for suggestions that are consistent with the insight obtained during the age regression.
3. Forgiveness of Others Age regression removes trauma and erroneous programming from the past. It also improves client's insight. Forgiveness therapies remove connections to old behaviors. The old patterns are held together by emotional connections of guilt and anger. These emotions, act like glue holding the old patterns together. Remove the emotional connections and the patterns are easily removed.
Forgiveness of Others Therapy is based upon the work of Fritz Pearls, and Hypnotherapists such as Gerald Kein, who teach "Chair Therapy". Many talk therapists have used his chair therapy. It is a difficult technique to utilize when the client is in the normal "waking" state of consciousness, and results are limited. But in hypnosis, as some enlightened Hypnotherapists have learned, the work can be done much more effectively. To the client, the person in the other chair is really there and the communication that goes on, that leads to forgiveness is very real. Direct suggestion is then also done to reinforce the change that the client came in for.
4. Forgiveness of Self In the fourth phase, this approach is continued but the person to be forgiven is the self. During this phase the client gains insight to an appropriate level of responsibility of the issue, and forgives him or herself. This is an extremely powerful part of the process. Some of our therapists actually believe that the previous three phases are just there to get to this point! Of course that is not the case, but the session is so powerful that it often seems that way. Additional suggestions are then also given to reinforce the change that they came into make.
5. Parts Mediation Therapy Most of our clients don't need to go through this phase of hypnotherapy. It is a special phase that was specifically designed to address secondary gain issues. All psychotherapists are familiar with these phenomena of secondary gain. In this case the cause of the issue has been addressed (removed) but on occasion the problem may continue. Secondary gain issues are caused by environmental conditions that continue to reinforce and thus produce the problem or behavior.
For example, a drug user may go back to using drugs because of the desire to once again be accepted by the group of drug users that he or she was previously associated with. Another common issue sustained by secondary gain, is that of chronic pain. Even after the pain has been controlled through the use of hypnosis (or medications), the pain may reoccur if the client lost something else substantial when the pain was controlled; for example disability payments, family sympathy, and being excused from undesirable work or chores.
Parts Mediation Therapy was developed from mediation techniques used by individuals that settle disputes between individuals. Similar techniques are used intra-psychically to help the client reach a win-win situation that relieves the client from the complaint, and moves him or her toward a healthier way of fulfilling needs, wants and desires

    EMOTION REPLACEMENT THERAPY
The mode that I use is “Emotion Replacement Therapy” The primus is that like in physics, two objects cannot occupy the same space. Two emotions or two habits can’t occupy the same space. I don’t know who came up with the idea first but it works. Tom Silver came up with the name and made the technique more effective.  Instead of releasing all of an emotion all at once, the problem is broken up into several parts, fractionalization. This way is less likely to meet with resistance.  Also by releasing the problem several times the suggestions are compounded. The arm raising ideomotor response adds to the acceptance of suggestions. Fractionalization, compounding, and ideomotor response, in the common parlance of hypnotherapy this called stacking the deck. And we always stack the deck.
A session might be something like this. An induction or inductions, and deepening to somnambulism. Placing all of those feelings and emotions that are PTSD (using the client words) into the left hand and arm. The arm and hand feels touching, feelings wont hurt in the arm and hand. And as those feelings and emotions fill the arm the arm rises. As the arm fills with those feelings and emotions the arm rises higher and tighter until it is completely filled and the arm is all the way up. The arm is all the way up because it is filled with all those old unwanted feelings and emotions we call PTSD. In a moment I am going to touch your hand and release half of all the feelings and emotions. Even with half of those feelings and emotions you will have plenty. More than enough. When I touch your hand you will release half of all that stuff, into the heavens where it can’t hurt you or anyone ever again. Your hand will drop and you will drop deeper into hypnosis, RELEASE, hand drop. Half of that stuff gone forever. You can’t get it back even if you wanted to, and you don’t want to. This time when you put those feelings and emotions that you call PTSD into your hand and arm the arm will rise halfway up. Because there is only half of those feelings and emotions left. Now put those feelings and emotions into the arm and hand and the arm rises halfway up…….There is still so much more feelings and emotions of PTSD than you need. Way too much, more than you could ever use. When I touch your arm, the arm will drop and you will release half of those feelings and emotions into the heavens……… Then ten percent…… Then ten percent. …. Now you only have five percent. Five percent is hardly any a all. So little it is worthless. You may as well put that into the hand and arm, the arm hardly moves as the rest of those…… Replace with calmness and serenity.
 
This is not a complete system. Just to give you an idea of whats involved.

Tom Silver kindly added his remarks.
 
 I don't know if giving out the method on your site really does this therapy justice. If it is not used properly, because the subject is in light hypnosis, there can be dangers of created over-reactive trauma.  This is why I recommend people to train privately with me with this technique. It does not work well in light hypnosis because the amplitudes of emotions are still active and an emotional land mine might be activated. Unless all consciousness in diminished and all emotions are lowered my technique may not be 100% successful.
 
Mr. Silver concerns are real. If you don't know how to create and test for somnambulism use guided imagery, NLP, or some other indirect therapy. This artical is meant for general information, not training. I learned about this from a Tom Silver's DVD. He in no way speaks for my ability. Kent.

HypnHHypnosis?
It didn’t work.
I can’t be hypnotized.
How often do we hear this complaint? Well too often because it just does not need to happen. Any hypnotist with a little experience and education can prevent this complaint by a rapid re-induction so that the client feels like they have been hypnotized. Some permissive inductions gradually draw the client into state and don’t really feel any different. It is a day dreamy feeling like being engrossed in a movie. A pleasant feeling, but nothing new or different. Where a rapid re-induction feels like a quick elevator dropping down.  Not in a scary way, but in an exiting way that always feels good. This way the sessions are not lost because the client talk themselves out of improvement. “If I didn’t feel hypnotized then I wasn’t hypnotized. If I wasn’t hypnotized then I am not any better than before. It didn’t work”. What is the difference between a client who says they can’t be hypnotized and the one who knows they can. The clients who think they can’t are about to have more fun. Between the pleasant surprise and the good feelings of hypnosis and then the suggested good feelings we will create a positive experience.
So if you or someone you know had a poor experience with hypnosis. Call for a free consultation and experience a pleasant hypnotic state. Just going into state will help you to feel better than you did before.

Shoreline Hypnosis comments.
 You're the best~ Let me tell you.! I think the world should know what a wonderful hypnotist you are! I can't thank you enough! During my DANB National Boards EXAMINATION , I closed my eyes, heard your voice and re- connected to the skype-nosis session you gave the night prior; then used deductive reasoning and Jedi knight skills to pass the Darn Examination. Glad its over!
