You need to do this in order to feel confident and able to place a person into a rapid and deep level of hypnosis after all if you can’t do this you can’t really call yourself a hypnotist. With the online video training you can stop at any stage to practise the techniques taught. Its up to you how much you practise but as the old saying goes practise makes perfect.

6. Do the trainers hypnotise the students. Not just relax them (relaxotherapy), but really hypnotise them. I’ve heard there is a difference: Yes, as you will see in the videos our trainers do use students for demonstration purposes to show the effectiveness of true depth of hypnosis. It’s truly a worry how many hypnotherapy trainers Can’t or Won’t demonstrate the skills and expertise required to induce true hypnosis or an effective instant or rapid induction. This really doesn’t show much hypnotic expertise so generally, their training may create only average hypnotists. That’s fine if that’s what you aspire to be.
