“A Personalised Induction Will Always Be More Effective”. Discuss, Base your answers on theoretical concepts and techniques presented in class.
In this essay I will try to describe the advantages of a personalised induction, I will also look at the disadvantages and why you might not use a personalised induction. I will discuss the methods and techniques that are used to personalise screeds when working with different clients by looking at modalities and different types of scripts and in conclusion whether I feel it is important to personalise the induction. A Personalised Induction
When anyone goes to see a hypnotherapist today, on the initial appointment the hypnotherapist will assess the client to get an understanding of what they want to achieve from the therapy sessions, what they expect to happen to see if they have a good understanding of how hypnotherapy can work, and how hypnotherapy is achieved. The hypnotherapist will start to build up a rapport with the client which will help to build a trust up between the hypnotherapist and the client which will hopefully help to reassure the client so that they can get the most from the sessions. It is usually necessary to correct the patients’ expectations and beliefs and to allay fears, since any misapprehensions or anxiety will interfere with the entire experience and may possible even prevent him from entering the hypnotic state. (Karle et al, 1987, 23). Each client is unique and different in many ways, and no two assessments will give the same results and this is because of many different factors like different backgrounds and how different people are brought up. Everyone has different opinions, different likes and dislikes, fears and phobias, different alcohol and drug use, and most important if they are taking any medications, before a hypnotherapist can start a programme with the client if there is any doubt the hypnotherapist should contact the client’s General Practitioner to get their medical history. This is what makes us all individual so therefore as hypnotherapists we need to know many different techniques to help devise the correct therapy for each individual client so they can achieve the best possible result from the therapy sessions.
By personalising the induction we can tailor it to suit a specific individual, when we work with the subconscious mind we need to achieve the best possible result to help the clients achieve their goal.
We can personalise the screed that we will use by using language and phrases that the client uses, by trying to include as many likes and dislikes that the client has as this will help relax the client and feel more at ease, we can do this by using all of the senses in the screed, which is known as compounding, this creates the most authentic experience for the client, as the more relaxed the client is the more success we will have, as a danger of only using one modality in the screed can make it not appropriate to the client and not effective as you may want it to be.
Usually we all communicate with each other through language, but we not only use words when we communicate we also use body language which work well together when communicating to each other. In fact the words we use make up only 7% of our communication, with tone and volume coming in second at 38% and body language being 55% (Chrysalis pg2). When we are working with a client they will have their eyes shut so they will not be able to see any body language, so for the therapy to be effective we can adapt or personalise the way we speak, the words we use to suit the individual, and this is done by assessing the client to see which one of the senses is their most prominent. There are six senses in total, and these are known as “languages of the mind” or modalities. Modalities
When we think we don’t just use words we create an experience that involves the modalities, we use the senses as a means of expanding and...
