Her responses on the Hypnothoughts Live Facebook thread on this question a few weeks ago:
That is the end of the discussion.
She (perhaps wisely) chose not to argue the point any further.
Readers can draw their own conclusion.
The most important thing to take away from this thread... would I suppose be, that if someone plagiarizes someone, in the hypnosis profession, we do this to help others. And at the very least, that person should be a capable hypnotist with an understanding of what is required to actually give help. Otherwise, said person is only polluting the environment even more. If not outright creating more problems - referring to the anchoring as the guy in the video was emerging.
After being private messaged by 2 people so far that I highly respect and trust about this "situation", I will simply add...
Choose your mentors wisely, and if someone claims to be "The Best In The World"... They are lying. Lying to themselves and others. It's that simple.
They might be the best in their town, they might even be the best in their state, and maybe... just maybe even the best in their country (although doubtful) but anyone claiming to be the best in the world has lost touch with reality.
And if they lie about being "The best in the world", they are lying and or delusional about a great deal more as well.
Also... Keep in mind that, especially in a group environment, helping people overcome Chronic Pain Is EASY.
Faith healers do it all the time based strictly on building belief and expectation. They use little to no actual technique other than that.
If you want to gain consistent results with one/one clients however, you will need to learn numerous techniques, because there is no one "Magic Bullet" technique, no matter what fancy new name it's given, and there is almost no technique I know of that totally "new" or totally "unique".
Uniquely branded? Absolutely.
Created out of thin air? Nope. Not a chance.
I don't mind saying that not a single technique I teach is 100% totally unique.
Everything I have learned and everything I teach has come from me "standing on the shoulders of giants" and I will always GIVE PROPER CREDIT to those that I have learned from. I think it's a shame that this is not a more common practice in our profession.
And in closing, it sounds like Steven offers a pretty excellent course. I do not benefit in any way shape or form from linking to his website, so I hope it's not considered spam. I would post the same thing to any course that I trusted in recommending, and again, I trust Barry's judgment greatly in regards to recommending a course, so here's a link for anyone that would like to check out what many are saying is an excellent training from a trainer with high integrity that knows what he's doing:
When people start flocking back to church, the moral compass will change because there will be more attention to social values and the true hypnotists can do their thing.
I think there might be some more specific context here.
No one is going to steal the work of another and present it as her own.
Maybe she has mixed her own work with what she learned in her course and packaged that.
Plagerism is bad but hearsay slander and glitch hunts can be cruel!
