The bottom line in this kind of assessment is to find out if the client would respond to more of an authoritarian approach or a gentle passive approach. There are other incites that are learned about the client here which help determine what kind of language it to be used wether that be colorful, flamboyant, descriptive, thought provoking and so on. Combinations of different choices of words and language are decided on the scoring system effectively tailoring the session for the individuals personality. I would agree that these steps are valuable in gaining the insite you need before venturing into a therapeutic session with a client. If PMR was attempted without any kind of background research on the client the outcome would most likely be unsuccessful or contrived.
2011, p.123). The Hypnotherapy Society developed their code of ethics from the BACP code of ethics 2002. It is a lengthy document so I will extract the issues that illustrate the overriding principles that an ethical therapist will adhere to. A therapist must always aim to give the best quality of care to a client and recognise their limitations due to training and experience. They must constantly evaluate and review any treatment given so as to keep the best interests of the client and to help them in the most effective way possible, i.e never prolonging treatment unnecessarily.
The first verbalisation is the first step to successfully resolving an issue. Admitting to someone else that you want to be helped is a terrific, bold and courageous step. The therapist gaining the client’s initial trust is vital. The therapist needs to be friendly, professional, empathetic and reassuring. The therapist should not be drawn in to having that all-important Initial consultation over the phone; it is important that the therapist sees the client’s body language in response to their questions.
This will include my belief that each person deserves to have a careful assessment or initial consultation from therapist to client and after careful consideration of the clients needs and preferences that the most appropriate screed would be used to benefit the client. . I will also discuss two very different hypnotherapists namely Dave Elman and Milton H Erickson. Lastly I will discuss hypnosis and mental health, and the tools that are often used in Hypnotherapy for assessment of a client, and to score an individual, which aids the hypnotherapist in the decision as to which style of screed to use in their clients therapy. Returning to the essay title, analizing the question as
When using a permissive induction the therapist can use lots of metaphors, and as long as the client feels safe you can be a little authoritative too. Permissive inductions work well if the client wants to improve in something whether it’s at work or at a sport, thought you might have to work on self-esteem issues
Unit 2 Module 3 3.1 The building of a rapport is often considered one of the most important aspects of a Hypnotherapists work, it is during this initial period of assessment and information gathering that the therapist beings to build a rapport with the client, building a rapport is the key to success, it is important to remember that first impressions count, it is when the client looks to the therapist to be the professional, the one who knows what they are doing, who is knowledgeable. This is the time to allay the fear of the client and to put them at ease without being to over baring, authoritative or clinical in your approach. The way you present yourself in those first few moments will count, everyone will make assumptions in those first few seconds of meeting someone, you as a therapist and they as the client, will use deductive logic based on appearance in the first instance at your/their presentation and
Life skills coaching level 4 Assignment 2 1. Considering the key learning points in the first section, briefly discuss how you should assess the client who visits you, and name two pitfalls of assumptions. Assess the client by Carry out a full assessment procedure then decide whether you can cope with the individual’s issues * Never assume that you know what is wrong with a client as you may miss some important information. * Another pitfall is to never stereotype the client * Allowing your own prejudice’s issues affect the way you assist the client. 2.
Without feeling the respect and trust that comes from rapport, the rest of the conversation and relationship will have little impact. The Principle of Matching One sign that rapport is happening is when people in conversation adopt the same or similar physical postures and mannerisms – even their silhouettes suggest the same mirrored profile as they talk. You may not be conscious of this until your awareness is raised and you get a chance to practice it to the point where it becomes a good habit. See Info Notes (5) – Changing a Habit. Coaching Skills – INFO NOTES (7) Authored by Steve Trivett - Building Rapport Practice is needed because it requires you to mirror facial movements, tone of voice, pace of speech, language used and your active listening demeanor.
Such ability is considered at the essence of all effective therapeutic relationships. Clearly if the therapist holds certain judgements for the client which for whatever reason cannot be put aside for the benefit of the client there is an immediate barrier to effective rapport building. At the very least the client may detect in some intangible way such a barrier and sense it as the therapists’ ‘dislike’ of them which would immediately hinder their susceptibility to relaxing and engaging honestly with the therapist. ‘If your belief system gets in the way of working with a particular client, then you must refer that client to someone else who would be comfortable with them’ Ericksonian Approaches A Comprehensive Manual Battino & South Crown House Publishing 1999. Building a positive regard with your client however, goes beyond your own personal beliefs.
Using modality is one way we have to personalise screeds although it is beneficial to use all the senses when trying to create a safe and comfortable space for a client. Modalities play a big part in personalising inductions as assessing the client as an individual helps decide which style will best suit that person. As you begin the process of learning how to hypnotise, you’ll begin to understand that there are two basic styles of hypnotic induction, and these are the Permissive style and the Authoritative style. The permissive style is the more usual style in therapeutic situations where the client needs to feel like they are in control of the situation before they can begin to relax. Attending a hypnosis session for the first time can be a scary thing because of all the mythology that a person probably has about hypnosis.
