In this essay I will describe the benefit to put into practice a personalised induction, as well as what is required to create a script, in order to tailor a personalised induction. I will also show that it is not always possible to use a personal induction on every client. I will also discuss what to take into consideration when doing a personalised induction. I will start by explaining why it is beneficial to personalise an induction as people are individuals, we all come from different backgrounds, different cultures, have varied life experiences, upbringing, intellect, skills and values. Inductions are utilised in hypnotherapy to communicate with an individual’s subconscious to assist in bringing about the change a client desires; as a therapist it is paramount that we assist our clients in the best way we can.
In practice, the Hypnotherapist often (but not exclusively) requires the client to be in a relaxed state, frequently enlists the power of the client’s own imagination and may utilise a wide range of techniques from story telling, metaphor or symbolism (judged to be meaningful to the individual client) to the use of direct suggestions for beneficial change. Analytical techniques may also be employed in an attempt to uncover problems deemed to lie in a client’s past (referred to as the “there and then”) or therapy may concentrate more on a client’s current life and presenting problems (referred to as the “here and now”). It is generally considered helpful if the client is personally motivated to change (rather than relying solely on the therapist's efforts) although a belief in the possibility of beneficial change may be a sufficient starting point. Regardless of the techniques employed, perhaps the most important thing is that a client should expect to feel comfortable and at ease with their therapist. This is of particular importance in Hypnotherapy, in which the value of the treatment is greatly enhanced when there is confidence in the practitioner.
They can use body language such as nodding their head to agree. Understand how to meet the communication and language needs, wishes and preferences of an individual Not everyone you come into contact with will want to communicate in the same way. You will need to find out their preferred method of communication as they could speak a different language or just have a preferred method to use. This may be based on their beliefs and values,
This might appear overly simplified taking the complex nature in which the brain processes information, but it is generally agreed that the brain takes information via a visual cortex, auditory cortex and an olfactory cortex. In other words, our sight, hearing
This essay will describe the benefit to put into practice a personalised induction, as well as how to create a script, in order to tailor a personalised induction. I will also show that it is not always possible to use a personal induction on a client. There are some points to take in to consideration when creating a personalised induction. Firstly, people are different in many ways. They have different likes and dislikes, cultural backgrounds and upbringings.
These differences are what make us all unique because of these differences people have different ways of dealing with certain situations, different coping mechanisms and various levels of openness or resistance. It is due to these differences that require a hypnotherapist to take these variables into consideration when devising a therapy strategy and selecting the techniques to be used for the individual so as to achieve the best result from the therapy when working with the subconscious mind (Chrysalis,. 2012). The screeds in the inductions is to include as many likes as possible while trying to reduce the dislikes where possible, no dislikes. The likes of the individuals can have more effect on relaxation of the individual person increasing the calmness feeling to maximum, where
The major difference is that hypnosis greatly intensifies more involvement within these basic psychological processes, sometimes to the point where we forget that our “as if” world is just a simulation. Also, hypnosis is more rigid and fixed ways we typically relate to time and space. In short the trance, become more temporarily suspended. Doing a personalised induction on a client we look first at the external appearance, they behaviours and their personality, and after having a good look and manage to see what style of induction it suit him, after finding out if is permissive or authoritarian you apply the correct one, if is authoritarian then you need to be more direct approach, if it permissive like me personally then you will need to be have a indirect approach. The most simple way to think about personalised induction is that more you know about the client personality, more easy is for client to be open to trance and relax, and then you can work easy with the suggestion and subconscious mind, so they can enjoy them and be
Each session we spend with them will uncover a facet of personality that is new to us, and with that in mind how can we hope to conclude the make up of any individual of such complexity with an initial consultation. The complexity in ourselves is precisely why we revel in the splendour of uniqueness in others. With such diversity surely we cannot hope to assess and treat a client with such limited modalities. It is also important to recognise that client’s modalities are not fixed, they will adapt and change as they respond to therapy. Group therapy is a victim of such personalised inductions, as is the complication of varied issues shared by a single client.
The therapist establishes control over the client; the suggestions to be embedded into the subconscious are given as a set of repeated commands. It is possible to identify if a client will respond well to this approach by analysing their responses to your questions. (3) “…the subjects who are most responsive to the authoritarian technique are those who have a great respect for, and respond well to authoritarian figures in daily life … as opposed to those who are highly imaginative or creative.” [Hypnosis for Change. Hadley & Staudacher. 1996 Pg 27] The type of people who generally fit in to this category are those who either are, or respond well to, people such as teachers, police officers or
Conscious attitudes and beliefs can change however if people are aware of their hidden biases (Jaksic, 2003). These biases can be monitored and individuals can attempt to ameliorate hidden attitudes before they are expressed through behavior. This compensation can include attention to language, body language and to the stigmatization felt by target groups. Common sense and research evidence also suggest that a change in behavior can modify beliefs and attitudes. Everyone can benefit from self-assessment of potential biases that might affect our judgment.
