I have also had clients who told me excitedly on the follow-up phone call of all the changes in their life: For some reason, the creativity is flowing freely now. For some reason, I don’t agonize on the decisions anymore, even though the decision hasn’t been made. I am okay in this situation now. For some reason, I smoke less cigarettes now, I just don’t feel like it as much as I used to. For some reason… – by the way, I don’t think I was hypnotized. At least I didn’t go deep into trance. I’m not sure if hypnosis works for me.
Suggestibility is one important aspect of hypnotherapy, as suggestion is big part of the practice of hypnotherapy.
We humans are a really very interesting bunch. I’m always amazed at how we complicate communications. Knowing this is not only helpful in our profession to effectively use language for direct or indirect types of people, but it also helps in daily communications with friends, colleagues and family.
