"Russ Burgess" now thats power0 points Luke-T wrote 962 Days Ago (neutral)0I've been interested in hypnotism since I was a kid but could never find any information on it. Fast forward 20 odd years and a career change to a psychotherapist beckoned. My tutor mentioned he was a hypnotherapist and offered to point me in the right direction. From that moment I was hooked again and for the last four years it has been my main focus.0 points JohnHall wrote 1069 Days Ago (neutral)0I had my first experience with Hypnosis when I was only 10 years old. I found a book on hypnosis, on the cover it had a darkened figure of a man with his hands stretched out in front of him with lightning Bolts coming out his fingertips, he was pointing them at a young girl. The girl looked like she was under his spell.The title of this book was "How To Hypnotize Anyone and Have Control Over Them" ( or something to that effect)
I was so excitied to get this power. I read every word on every page from cover to cover. I was so excitied to get this awsome power, I went to school and tried this new found power on my friends and to my surprise, they all did what I asked. This was way to easy, I thought maybe they were playing with me, so when I hypnotized them again I added a new suggestion, they would give me their lunch money, then I emerged them and went on my way forgetting the suggestion I had given them. Later that day while I was in the lunch line my friends came to me and started giving me all their money, putting it in my pockets! I told them they didn't have to do that, but they insisted, and at that very moment I knew there was something to this Hypnosis stuff!
Through the years that followed, I studied everything I could get my hands on dealing with Hypnosis. I learned I have no control over anyone, but I have learned how to help many friends and family members using hypnosis.With much encouragement from these same people I sold my business, and decided to make helping people through hypnosis my livelihood
. With all these people encouraging me, I enrolled in the Florida Institute of Hypnotherapy.(which at the time was the only school recognized by the FL Board of Education)
So some 40 years after reading that book, I became a Board Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist through the American Council of Hypnosist Examiners (A.C.H.E.)
I am living my dream, helping people who had no idea there was help with their pain and other ailments and doing all this in Beautiful Sunny S.W. Florida.

It is a great pleasure to be part of this group. I am starting my training in September (with Hypnosis Academy in Dublin) and I am so looking forward to it. I have been devouring everything that I can find on the net in relation to hypnosis. I have a background in homeless services both in the UK and Ireland. I studied clinical counselling at the Institute of counselling in Glasgow, Scotland. I have worked with many clients over the years that looking back now they could have been transformed by Hypnosis.
I have a weight problem and decided to give hypnosis a try and bought a book called "you can be thin" by Marisa Peer and after reading it and listening to the CD I lost two stone and was transformed from a total sceptic to a full blown believer! I immediately saw the benefit of hypnosis to the clients that I am currently working with and after looking around at the courses available in Dublin decided on Hypnosis Academy. I e-mailed all the hypnosis schools that I could find and only one responded (Hypnosis Academy) this I found very disappointing and they all lost a potential student. As Susan Wallace (senior tutor at Hypnosis Academy) said “We got to treat our students as we do our clients. We all need each other.”
I am considering starting my own practice after I complete the Diploma course (branching out on my own is very scary!). I really feel that I can make a difference and hopefully a living from hypnosis. My journey so far has been exciting and it can only get better.
Thanks for listening.

And, he told me he because a hypnotist so that he would be more interesting to "chicks". He went on to say, that he was thinking about becoming a rock star but he hadn't been very good a guitar. I hope he just moves on to something else. Maybe I should buy him a harmonica. ;-)0 points
