Hypnosis Can Be Helpful to Your Child

With every passing year, I see increasing numbers of parents seeking help for the children through the use of hypnosis. Being a mom and a grandma, I find it particularly gratifying to be able to help a child as well as their parents through the work I do.
Children respond particularly well to hypnosis because they are relatively free of the conditioning, skepticism and resistance that adults may have. Children are more "suggestible" and they have vivid imaginations. Since imagination is an important attribute required to be hypnotized, it easier to access a child's subconscious mind to bring about rapid change. If a child is motivated for change we often see amazing results.
If you're wondering what issues could be improved for your child by utilizing hypnosis and learning positive self hypnosis techniques, here are some issues where it is effective:

  • Behavioral Problems - Behavior problems at home or school 
  • Ego Strengthening - Self-confidence, self-esteem, goal setting 
  • Fear - Fear of dogs, cats, insects, snakes, etc.), being left alone, darkness, monsters, doctors, dentists, needles, storms, test anxiety, new foods, being sick, sports injuries, failure, and more
  • Unwanted Habits - Nail biting, thumb sucking, hair twirling and poor posture, stuttering or stammering, nose picking, and more
  • Eating Habits - Food choices, too much sugar, manners, weight loss & weight control
  • Performance Issues - School, study skills, learning and memory, completing homework, exams, sports, competitions
  • Sleep - Reluctance to go to bed, too tired to get up, nightmares, etc.
  • Transitional Adjustments - Divorce, new home, new school, shyness, etc.

The hypnotism services I render to the public are defined as the use of hypnosis to inculcate positive thinking and the capacity for self-hypnosis. I do not represent my services as any form of medical, behavioral or mental health care, and despite research to the contrary, by law I may make no health benefit claims for my services. 
North Shore Hypnosis utilizes hypnotism to help clients where I coach or guide to motivate individuals to achieve their goals. Hypnotism for medical or psychological problems requires a written referral from a licensed practitioner of those healing arts." - Carol Denicker, BCH, CMI

Intuition Workshop - Discover the Hidden Power of Your Sixth Sense - With Dr. Laurie Nadel September 27, 2014 10AM to 5:30PM Defined as "the sudden, spontaneous knowing of something without the conscious use of reasoning," intuition is a natural ability that everyone has to a certain degree. Also known as the sixth sense, intuitive intelligence can be compared to artistic or musical ability. For example, anyone can learn how to play "Chopsticks" on the piano but only a few can play Mozart at Carnegie Hall. And there is only one Mozart. Many breakthrough scientific discoveries can be attributed to an intuitive "Eureka!" moment: Albert Einstein credited intuition with his discovery of the Theory of Relativity. Kekule, the father of organic chemistry, spent 17 years trying to mathematically prove the structure of the benzene molecule when he had a dream about a snake eating its tail. He attributed his intuition with solving the problem in his dream state. And who can forget Archimedes discovering the principles of displacement while sitting naked in his bathtub? Inspired by this "aha!" moment, he ran naked down the street shouting "Eureka!" meaning, "I have found it." In this one-day workshop, you will learn how to find, identify, and trust your intuition so that you can apply it to your work with clients. You will learn how to utilize Ericksonian and NLP techniques in order to: . Identify an authentic intuitive experience. . Create an operative metaphor for your sixth sense. . Recognize your personal signal: visual, auditory, or kinesthetic. . Communicate with your sixth sense so that you can access it when you need it. . The characteristics of intuitive thinking, feeling and behavior. . Model an intuitive genius. . Trust your sixth sense to be there for you when you need it. . Program your intuition to help you solve problems while you dream.

Hypnotic Practitioners Need to Learn Regression Therapy

Hypnotic Regression Therapy
Workshop by Roy Hunter 5/1-2, 2014

Client centered hypnotic regression therapy (HRT) is a proven approach for helping clients to discover and release the causes of various emotional, behavioral and psychosomatic problems. Competently facilitated HRT often helps clients overcome common fears and anxieties even when other techniques may fail to provide lasting results. Some health professionals already employ this profoundly beneficial technique, which has been taught and practiced for decades. This workshop is both didactic and experiential, and is a MUST for any health professional who uses hypnosis as a tool for facilitating the change of dysfunctional behavior and who is also justifiably concerned about the risks of false memories. Instruction level: intermediate and advanced.

Objectives: Participants will be able to…

·    1.  Summarize basic hypnotic regression therapy (HRT) theory and techniques;

·    2.  Assess the risk and causes of false memories and how to minimize that risk;

·    3.  Recognize the differences between leading and guiding;

·    4.  Assess when HRT is preferred over other hypnotic techniques;

·    5.  Describe which past events we look for during HRT;

·    6.  Describe at least two hypnotic regression techniques;

·    7.  Recognize abreactions and use hypnotic techniques to facilitate the client's ability to release negative emotions surrounding a past event.

·    8.  Use appropriate hypnotic suggestion at the conclusion of the regression in order to increase the probability of lasting success;

·    9.  Practice a regression technique in dyads.


Workshop Outline

  • Overview and Background Information;
  • Guiding vs. Leading: The Risk of False Memories;
  • Ideomotor response questions and hypnoanalysis to determine when HRT is indicated;

How Does Self Hypnosis Foster Success? 
Self-hypnosis provides a means of tapping into the power of the mind to achieve self-mastery. Regardless of what our goals are we all want to reach our maximum potential, our personal best.  Self-hypnosis facilitates our goals.

Self-hypnosis can bring about major improvements in habit control, learning and memory, emotional stability, motivational advancement, wellness, relief from physical discomfort, trouble sleeping, self confidence, self esteem, and athletic excellence. 

Self-hypnosis can be particularly helpful in:

  • changing attitudes
  • increasing self-confidence
  • learning enhancement
  • memory improvement
  • stress 
  • physical discomfort
  • habit control
  • bed-wetting
  • motivation
  • endless areas of personal concern
Self-hypnosis, used in conjunction with visualization generates:
  • the power to change
  • the power to create
  • the removal of self-imposed limitations
  • the resolution of (fear, sadness or anger)
What your mind can conceive, you can achieve! 
"As a man thinketh, so he shall be..."  Positive thinking or statements of affirmation date back to biblical times.  Today, positive affirmations are the themes of countless self-improvement books.  The addition of self-hypnosis is a powerful and direct way to communicate positive affirmations to one's inner awareness and create success. You can do it!

The Many Benefits of Training in the Art & Science of Hypnosis at a State Licensed School

Searching for a school to become certified as a hypnosis professional can be confusing.  It is easy to be led down the wrong path when reading exaggerated or untrue claims made by individuals claiming to operated "schools".  It isn't a legal school until the Department of Education licenses it as such.  
As of this writing there is only one school licensed to teach hypnotism in New York State, the New York Hypnosis Training Center, which is located in Holbrook.  The NYS Education Department (BPSS) can easily confirm our claim. 
The most important benefits of training a licensed school are:
1.     State licensed directors and instructors
2.    State approved curriculum and equipment, eviewed by experts in the field.
3.    Facilities meet state and local building, fire and health codes
4.    Facilities are inspected by State Education officials.
5.    Complaint process gives students access to regulatory agency.
6.    Students' tuition is protected by a State controlled Tuition Reimbursement Account.
7.    Approved requirements for admission.
8.    Catalogs and Enrollment Agreements must meet state standards.
10.  Refund policies are determined by state regulations.
11.  Employers recognize licensed schools as quality institutions.
12. Licensed schools meet or exceed the standards required by Article 101 of the NYS Education Law and Part 126 of the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education.
Additionally, live demonstrations and supervised practice with spontaneous critiques are essential to training which is intended to lead to effective, successful practice of hypnosis. Correspondence courses are limited in their potential to train a person in the science and art of motivational hypnotism. Research carefully before signing up for correspondence courses or distance learning for training in hypnosis.

Have you ever thought of using hypnosis to enhance your athletic performance?

- Peak athletic performance is inhibited by stress and distraction but with hypnotism, blocks that have inhibited your personal best can be released. You have the ability to excel in your sport with focus and passion, while in a relaxed state. 

- Your subconscious mind is like an amazing computer that directs every behavior and bodily function. You can train (program) your mind and body to play your perfect game. The subconscious mind doesn't distinguish between reality and imagination. So the visualization instantly transmits electrical/ chemical messages throughout your body in accordance with its perceived reality. It automatically accepts the imagery as real and duplicates muscle and nerve activity, improving performance automatically. So it's not all in your mind, hypnotic imagery results in physical change. Hypnosis works!

Most of my teaching experience took place before I founded the NY Hypnosis Training Center.  For ten years, I was a board certified   instructor for the National Guild of Hypnotists (NGH).  Over the course of ten years I taught hundreds and hundreds of students the NGH Hypnotism Certification Course. 

My students range in age from 23 to 70.  Typically they range in age from 35 to 55 years old.  For the most part, mature students who have decided to learn the art and science of hypnotism for the purpose of helping others tend to be highly motivated, intelligent and focused.  Some have chosen a new career path in the field of hypnosis.  Some are adding the skill of hypnotherapy to broaden their existing scope of therapeutic services.



“Really great people make you feel that you, too, can become great_.

-  Mark Twain


Regardless of the fact that most of my students are motivated, intelligent and focused, occasionally even the talented individual may lack the confidence necessary to demonstrate their true potential in class.  These students experience profound benefit from learning techniques that develop motivation and apply them to themselves the various techniques and hypnotic exercises they learn to utilize with and teach to their clients. 


The class learns that hypnotists help their clients inculcate positive thinking and the capacity for self-hypnosis wherein we coach or guide to motivate individuals to achieve their goals.

Throughout the course of study, students are taught theory, observe the demonstration of each technique, and then they form pairs for practice sessions. In addition this process encourages the spirit of mentoring and the importance of confidentiality. 


"Whether You Think You Can or Can't, You're Right"

Henry Ford


All students learn basic assessment and goal setting tools to facilitate their clients’ objectives.  As part of the learning process, they apply these to their own issues. As they learn how to help others, they receive therapeutic value from exploring the following:


  • The situation or problem to be assessed. 
  • Behavior – (What are they currently doing regarding the situation?)
  • Affect- (What are their emotions related to their behavior?)
  • Sensations – (What are the physical symptoms related to their behavior?)
  • Imagery – (How do I imagine myself related to my behavior?)\
  • Cognition – (What are my thoughts related to my behavior?)


Students then learn a goal setting exercise.  They are asked to apply this goal setting process to the situation or problem which they have assessed. In this process, the following questions must be thoughtfully answered:


  • Goal: (What do I want to achieve? By when should I achieve my goal?)
  • Benefits: (What benefits will I derive from achieving my goal?)
  • Thinking:  (What must I be thinking to achieve my goal?)
  • Feeling: (What must I be feeling to achieve my goal?)
  • Action: (What specifics steps and by what deadline must I achieve my goal?)


The course of study also includes a lesson on the enhancement or restoration of self confidence and self esteem with hypnosis. 

Students must learn and experience these techniques as well.  Additionally, one of the texts all students must read , “Motivational Hypnotism” by Fiona Biddle and Shaun Brookhouse, is another brilliant tool to motivate clients and/or students to reach their true potentials.  The self help value of the book always benefits the student.


Because my classes are always small, I am able to continually assess and  encourage all students to reach their personal best, including those students who are obviously talented but lagging behind.



The Fun of Learning About Hypnosis Never Ends

I spent a long and fun-filled weekend from 8/6 to 8/9 both teaching and learning at the National Guild of Hypnotists Educational Convention which was held in Marlboro, Massachusetts.

In the world of conventions, you'd be hard pressed to find so vast a collection of brilliant and generous minds willing to share what they know about hypnosis, the applications and techniques for change, growth and healing as well as Internet marketing.  I am proud to be one of the NGH faculty members as well as one of it's hungry for knowledge attendees.

It's a great pleasure for me to catch up with NYHTC alumni at the convention.  They are a source of great pride to me. 

Some great photos are on the way!



I've been reaping the rewards of MasterMinding with a small group of hypnotic professionals.  If you want to push yourself forward in whatever field you are in, consider forming a MasterMinding group.
