The Hypnosis Numbers Game – Approaching Learning HWT

Hello People

Thank you all for signing up! I’ve had a fantastic response so far and am really looking forward to providing some great content.

This first video is a little something on approaching learning. It was originally part 1 of a 2 part video, but I lost the second part somehow. Probably or the best, as I have decided to encorporate the subject in the lost part 2 into another video altogether (you’ll see it at some point).

Enjoy and consider!

    Hi James,

    Thanks for taking the time and trouble to do this. I am fascinated by the premise of hypnosis without trance having trained the “traditional” way, that is, using hypnotic language to elicit trance to elicit hypnotic phenomena. Daft really when put like that. I really like what you have posted so far and am looking forward to future installments, making mistakes and incorporating some new learnings into what I can do.

    Hi James, I have found your methods of hypnosis interesting and your style of teaching very influential and has influenced me to learn hypnosis. I have had no prior training and am 19 yrs of age. I have been interested in the human mind for many years and I have also had a keen interest in hypnosis for quite some time. I was wondering which route would be the best way to start learning (if there is any). Is it possible to learn from home? Many thanks, JT

      Hi Joe

      Thanks for the feedback – I am glad that you are enjoying the blog. It is totally possible to learn hypnosis without going on a course, but the key element is doing as well as reading and studying. One of the best hypnotists I know is entirely self taught! But he put a lot of ‘field time’ into learning his art. The advantage of (good) training is that you get direct feedback from the instructor that can correct problems much quicker.

      The blog contains enough information to start experimenting with doing hypnosis – if you watch through all the videos from the beginning you will get a lot of good info, and if you study the 3 ‘handstick tutorial’ videos you will have enough to start playing with that (and know that making mistakes and ‘failing’ are an essential part of learning).

      If you are looking to take things further, you are more than welcome to join me at my next live workshop (24th/25th April 2010), or grab a copy of the Hypnosis Mastery Programme which will take you through everything that you need to know in the comfort of your own home (but again, you’ll need to DO as well as study). The relevant links are:

      Hope that helps, and all the best with learning to be a great hypnotist!

    love the video James, fear of failure/being laughed at has been stopping me from trying with more people!
    I´ll have a crack at it again this weekend.

    Excellent video James.
    Another quotation that is apposite here is one by Winston Churchill, who said ‘success is going failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm’!
