Hypnotherapy Heresy - Powerful Hypnotherapy Made Easy!

Hi, James Tripp here - welcome to this information page for Hypnotherapy Heresy - Hypnotherapy Made Easy!

Early in 2014 I set out to solve a problem that had become apparent existed amongst many of my Hypnosis Without Trance customers and students - people were learning hypnosis successfully and developing skills and understandings, but were keen to step across the threshold from simple basic phenomena and ‘induction’ to setting up in practice as a Hypnotherapists. (HWT Changework Applications being a programme aimed at those who are already seeing clients and looking to expand their repertoire.)

So people would write to me asking variously whether I was planning to run a certified hypnotherapy training or, if not, whether I could recommend a good course for them to train on.

The trouble was, it was very hard for me to make a solid recommendation, because I didn’t know of such a course. Indeed, many of the new Hypnotherapists I found myself mentoring seemed to have been done something of a disservice by the long ‘in depth’ hypnotherapy trainings they had attended:

They had been given too many tools and techniques, too little time drilling core skills and little by way of criteria for making decisions about what to use and when.

The result of this seemed to be overwhelm and confusion (oftentimes the very reason for coming to me for mentoring in the first place).

In thinking about what might best serve the people asking the question, what kept coming back to mind was Andrew T Austin’s IEMT Practitioner training (I have attended this excellent training several times, and thoroughly recommend Andy as a trainer). Andy’s IEMT training is a model of elegance, pragmatism and simplicity. Across one weekend he teaches people the fundamentals of IEMT (a simple and powerful change work technique) along with the essentials of running an effective client session from beginning to end. After the training, people can get going seeing clients - no confusion. No overwhelm.

By keeping it simple they are in a position to start seeing clients and getting the real world experience they need right away.

Of, course, no single technique is ever going to come close to being the be-all-and-end-all of change work, but that is not the point. Once you are working with something simple you get to...

Get really good with it and reach the limits of it quickly… THEN add the next concept, technique or tool to your toolkit.

You get to learn and build real client skills the only way that ever really counts anyway - with real clients in the real world (I would advocate getting mentoring/supervision too if you really want to get flying, but that is a different story.)

So, it occurred to me that it might be useful to create something just like that for Hypnotherapy. Something that would…

Simplify, strip back and focus on the details that make a difference when it comes to simple but effective hypnotic change work.

Now I mention Andy’s IEMT training here only to illustrate where the seed of the Hypnotherapy Heresy concept came from - obviously Andy and I are going to have different approaches and views on what is important and whats not when it comes to client work, and Hypnotherapy Heresy is very much the ‘Tripp Take’ on things. Also, I decided to expand out in scope a little and include…

Key aspects around business, professionalism and establishing client relationships.

The Objective

The objective of this programme is simple…

Make effective hypnotherapy easy!

Easy for you to begin working with people and making a difference. Easy to focus on honing a set of core skills and ideas and building a solid platform to develop yourself further as a unique ‘transformative artist’.

As mentioned above we cover…

  • End-to-end 'Heresy' Process Map
  • Elegant and Powerful Framing
  • Simple and Impactful Core Processes
  • Key Skills and Tools Unpacked
  • Psychological Subtleties to Stack the Odds
  • Business Considerations and Pragmatics

With Hypnotherapy Heresy you will be give just enough in terms of tools and techniques to begin seeing clients (assuming you already have basic hypnosis skills - if not, please study The Hypnosis Mastery Programme and Rapid Induction Rituals and PRACTISE the material covered within), along with a goldmine of attitude adjustments, psychological subtleties, distinctions and frames to give you a head start in professionally managing clients and client sessions. Let me repeat that:

  1. Just enough in terms of tools and techniques.
  2. A goldmine of attitude adjustments, psychological subtleties, distinctions and frames to give you a head start in professionally managing clients and client sessions.

Hypnotherapy Heresy is essentially about equipping you with everything you need to cross the threshold from hypnosis to hypnotic change work and to hit the ground running seeing clients.

Programme Content

The content of Hypnotherapy Heresy is pretty extensive - not in terms of tools and techniques (right there we keep it minimal), but in terms of hints, tips, techniques and discussions to deepen your understanding of change and effective change work.

For clarity, the whole process is mapped, from advertising and connecting, to the initial conversation/phone call, through to the sessions and completing with effective follow-up.

The focus of he focus is 100% on pragmatics - what works. What makes a difference. We keep theoretical underpinnings to a minimum, offering enough to give you a grounding in why Hypnotherapy REALLY OFFERS VALUE to people looking to live better, happier lives.

Why is it called Hypnotherapy Heresy?

First off is the reason I have already given above: the classical view is if you want to learn hypnotherapy you need this deep, in-depth course. So heretical in saying:

“No you don’t need need a deep in-depth course, you need just enough really highly focused material to set you off so you hit the ground running and you're able to start doing some reasonably effective work with people straight off the bat… and THEN you are in a real position to start refining your skills."

Secondly, ‘heresy’ because we will be throwing out a lot of ‘dogma’ about hypnosis and hypnotherapy. Indeed, the last time I ran a hypnosis workshop I had somebody run out in tears saying “you don't even believe in hypnosis”. Now this isn’t true, but if you are already familiar with the HWT approach, you will know that I am happy to take a functional rather than ‘mythical’ view if this craft. 🙂

The models and conceptual underpinnings presented via this programme are about getting ‘under the hood’ of hypnotherapy so that we can really understand the value in the work we do…

Getting into the mechanics of it so you can really understand what you're doing in a way that enables you to psychologically stack the deck in your favour!

      Hi Karl

    Yet another great product from James! I have spent the better part of two days with this material and what strikes me over and over is the practicality of James’ approach. Accomplishing complex things with seeming effortless simplicity is the very definition of ‘Elegance’. That is exactly what I found in this material. I have yet to be disappointed in any of his material and James makes it ridiculously affordable! Well done, sir!

    Hi James,
    thanks for this fantastic training, I have not runned trough the complete set of videos, but what I have seen up to now is really very structured and helpful.
    I have one small question, wouldn’t it a good idea just to add there the index and the overview drawing which you can find in the detaile description of this module as a pdf?
    How do you think about it?

    Many Thanks for your trainings and greetings from the sunny south of germany
