coaching hypnosis nlp May 24, 2016

The following is a transcript of a client session where we use the B-E-A-T Coaching system for change. This is taken from our book "The BEAT Coaching System" by Sarah Carson and Shawn Carson.

Coach: what would you like to work through today?

Client: I have to give a presentation next week and I would like to feel a lot more confident about it.

Coach: great, where is the presentation?

Client: it’s in the office, I'll be giving it in the boardroom.

Coach: great, and what you want to achieve in the presentation?

Client: I want to convince them to go ahead with my project.

Coach: and when you get to the end of the presentation, how will you know if you have achieved that? What will you see that will let you know that they are in favor of your project? I know that at some stage they will tell you, but what will you see right there and then that will let you know your presentation has been a success?

Client: I guess I would see them smiling and nodding.

Coach: Okay great. Today we...

[Session Transcript] The Visual Squash

coaching hypnosis nlp Apr 08, 2016

The following is a transcript from a live client session in which we use a Visual Squash as a part of the change process.  This is taken from our book- The Visual Squash (NLP Mastery Series) by Jess Marion and Shawn Carson

Coach: What would you like to work through today?

 Client: I’m torn between continuing my consulting work and leaving to pursue my writing.

 Coach: OK, so it’s like you’re being pulled in two different directions.

 Client: Yes.

Coach: On one hand you want to continue your work and on the other pursue the writing. 

Client: Right.

Coach: So, I’m curious: this part of you that wants to continue on with the consulting work, what is it doing for you? What are you getting out of it? 

Client: It’s more lucrative, so there’s money involved. Money lets me pay my rent, pay my bills. The work is interesting and I enjoy it and it gives me a sense of security, of knowing I can go back to it full-time if I...

NLP Modeling vs. Deep Trance Identification


NLP modeling techniques and Deep Trance Identification both have the end goal of helping people to step into greater levels of personal excellence by teaching us how to learn from others who are masterful in the areas that we would like to improve.  

Modeling and DTI come at this from different ends of the spectrum.  NLP modeling is a deductive process that relies on the modeler to consciously elicit and impliment unconscious information from the model.  DTI on the other hand is an inductive approach that allows both the modeler and model to experience the skill and way of being on the uncsoncious level rather than making it conscious.  

An example of this would be the hypnotist who spends hundreds of hours analyzing Milton Erickson's work and creating a conscious explanation for it versus the hypnotist who steps into Erickson's shoes and feels what it is like to do hypnosis as Erickson.  

Both approaches compliment each other and are useful in the...

3 Secrets Hypnosis Trainers Don't Tell You About Running Sessions On Skype

coaching hypnosis skype Feb 16, 2016

When I first started working with clients on Skype I thought it was going to be easy because it was the same as working with a client in person.  

I was WRONG!  

Not terribly wrong, it was after all not too different from in person sessions.  However there were some key elements of running virtual seessions that just aren't a consideration when doing in person work.  Once you address these differences the sessions become even easier.  

The interesting thing is I have seen a lot of disscusion from students and other trainers about virtual sessions and no one seems to directly address these issues.  So I thought I would put it out there to help any practitioners interested in running Skype sessions or who already are.   

Skype sessions can be a great way to stretch your sklls, make connections around the world, and of course it is fun and professionally rewarding.  

Happy Skyping!
