Clinical Uses Of Hypnotism

William Mitchell began helping people with hypnotism for habit control, with weight loss and stop smoking group seminars. He started the Personal Motivation Hypnosis Clinic Jan, 2003 in Springfield, IL. That successful work continues today. See www.hypnoprogram.com to read the testimonials and to view the videos of his many successful clients. He was awarded Hypnotist of the Year in 2009 for his work in Clinical Hypnosis. He also served on the Southern Illinois University Medical School in Springfield, IL as adjunct faculty on the CAM Panel (Complementary and Alternative Medicine) from 2005-2009.

Stage (Performance) Hypnosis

When William Mitchell met a stage hypnotist that only performed clean comedy hypnosis shows, he asked the stage hypnotist, the late Kent Sorrells, to teach him how to use hypnosis for clean comedy high school shows and corporate holiday shows. Over the years William has expanded his range of clean comedy hypnosis shows to include colleges, conventions, church fundraisers, project graduations, after-prom lock-ins, school assemblies and festivals, county fairs and the Illinois State Fair in 2019. William Mitchell believes that stage hypnotists are the ambassadors of hypnotism to the public. Therefore, it is very important to have trained and ethical stage hypnotists that continue to take continuing education classes as well as internships
at conferences and conventions like Heartland Hypnosis Conference. www.cleanhypnoshows.com

The Business (Practice) Of Hypnosis

William Mitchell has built several successful businesses to serve various clientele or audiences. In an effort to serve individuals seeking a career in the field of Hypnotism, William formed the Mitchell institute of Professional Hypnosis LLC, (originally an IL state approved vocational school) in 2006. Since that time, William has created trainings, products and now a conference for those seeking a method or business model that will afford them the opportunity to practice as either a Certified Consulting Hypnotist, a Certified Hypnotherapist, or a Stage Hypnotist as well as training for other professionals seeking to add hypnotism to their toolbox. www.mitchellinstitute.com
While all of these Tracks are Hypnotism, it has been the experience of William Mitchell that it is better to specialize and focus your attention on each area.

Spiritual or Metaphysical Uses of Hypnosis

As an ordained seminary trained Christian minister, Rev. Mitchell could appreciate the spiritual applications of hypnotism, especially in the psychology of forgiveness. Both in his pastoral ministry and in his clinical office Pastor Mitchell has utilized the powerfully experiential tool of hypnotism to enhance the spiritual component of those that came seeking spiritual encouragement, guidance and direction.

``HYPNOSIS FOR ATHLETES, SEVEN KEY MUST ASK QUESTIONS``
What are the ``MUST ASK`` questions when working with an athlete?
Business Track:
Hypnos-Niche - The Power of Niching for a Successful and Profitable Hypnosis Business

Description: Most hypnotists are drawn to the hypnotic field because they have a desire to help people be happier and healthier yet, oftentimes the struggle is creating a thriving and lucrative practice. The reality is that 90% of hypnotists struggle to build a full-time profitable business, worry about where the next client is coming from, and lack of certainty about how to leverage their skills and focus their time and energy.

The single most important key that will allow you to create a thriving hypnosis practice with a steady stream of clients: the decision to niche. Let's explore what it feels like when you don't niche, what it means to niche and how you need a niche to be rich!
In order to set the scene for winning in the first session and formulate the ideal MENTAL TOUGHNESS TRAINING PLAN for athletes, there are 7 MUST ASK brainstorming questions.

Join me to learn the what those questions are as well as five simple tools to help athletes get the MENTAL EDGE.

Know how to formulate an athlete's MENTAL TOUGHNESS TRAINING PLAN with the 7 ``must ask`` questions during the intake

Hypnosis to Help Heal Trauma

Judith Herman provides a survey of the treatment of trauma throughout recent history in her book, Trauma and Recovery, and recounts that hypnosis has helped heal trauma every step of the way. This presentation looks at distinct symptoms of hypnosis and how they correlate with hypnosis and trance and how those who have experienced trauma (and, in particular, are impacted by PTSD)
are excellent candidates for the healing power of hypnosis with the right introductions, inductions, and suggestions.

REPROGRAM for LASTING HAPPINESS

The way we view the world, the meaning we give to significant events, and what we attribute those events to determine our level of happiness and life satisfaction. Previously, our ‘happiness set point’ was thought to be rigid and unmoving but now because of Dr. Martin Seligman’s work with LEARNED OPTIMISM you can reprogram your thinking in a very specific, quick and easy-to-learn way that is also extremely grounded in science and research.

Simpson Protocol - Exploring the Undiscovered Country

My presentation will be a discussion and demonstration of the Simpson Protocol and its ability to effect rapid change for our clients. By using the deeper levels of hypnosis as a starting point, we can move the conscious judgmental mind to the side and deal with the subconscious mind to eliminate the deepest issues even when they are not accessible at other levels. By utilizing the Superconscious Mind, the caretaker of all the events in our lives, we can modify, change and reevaluate all the previous experiences and utilize them to move our clients to greater happiness.

Jason Kropidlowski

1 hour presentation

Jason Kropidlowski was introduced to hypnosis back in 1987, and has used it throughout his life.

Initially, he used hypnosis solely for aiding in athletics. As a high school football player, a weight lifter, and a mountain bike racer, Jason used hypnosis to focus and ``stay in the zone``. He also used it to manage pain and discomfort, and to push his body beyond the average physical limits and stresses.

Later, Jason used his training in hypnosis during his career in the military. He used it for everything from pain management, functioning under sleep deprivation, stress management, and separation anxiety, depression and PTSD.

During this time period, Jason attended his first comedy stage hypnosis show at a Florida night club. Aware of his ability to be hypnotized easily, he volunteered as one of the hypnotists many subjects for the show. Needless to say, Jason was the hit of the show. This sparked Jason's interest in the use of hypnosis for entertainment.

During the years that followed, Jason continued practicing hypnosis, refining and perfecting his skills, and discovering many more important and fulfilling uses for hypnosis in his life.

Today, Jason has made a career of his passion, and is dedicated to share the life altering benefits of hypnosis with others.

Jason is a Certified Consulting Hypnotist, Certified Instructor, owner of ROC Hypnosis in Rochester NY, JAX Hypnosis in Jacksonville FL, and a proud member of the National Guild of Hypnotists and the International Certification Board of Clinical Hypnotherapy.

No Pressure Sales Model: Close 8 Out of 10 Sales Easily

Through the use of this sales model, hypnotists will be able to provide a screening or consultation in such as way that allows them to easily, repeatedly and consistently close 8 out of 10 sales without the use of pressure tactics, overcoming objectives, or manipulation. This ethical method is the backbone to success of two clinics owned and operated by hypnotist Jason Kropidlowski.

Marc Sandor Woolf

1 hour presentation

It was my step-father, an NGH Certified Hypnotist, who convinced me of the power of hypnosis. After suffering with painful headaches for many years, my step-dad sat me down at the kitchen table one afternoon, did some simple relaxation exercises and used visual, auditory and kinesthetic sub-modalities to help me rid myself of the sinus pain. After that, I was no longer a devout skeptic and have not experienced sinus headaches for many years.

Motivated by the memory of my late step-father, his love of hypnosis and my own results, I became a Certified Hypnotist through the National Guild of Hypnotists.

My clients are primarily people who want to change their size/shape, smokers who want to quit, teachers who want to lower their stress levels and salespeople who want to improve their closing ratio.

I am an award-winning sales person and an accomplished public school teacher based in the Rochester, New York area.

My success is rooted in the knowledge that people want a result that they don't have or have a problem they don't want.

``How to Create an Effective Customer Journey Map`` - As hypnotists, we are in the business of helping our clients solve their problems and achieving long term success. But without a deeper understanding of our customers' needs, pain points and motivations, we are, in all likelihood, doing a disservice for our clients and not earning what we are worth.
