a scientific and philosophical rule that entities should not be multiplied unnecessarily which is interpreted as requiring that the simplest of competing theories be preferred to the more complex or that explanations of unknown phenomena be sought first in terms of known quantities
William of Occam (also spelled "Ockham") didn't invent the rule associated with his name. Others had espoused the "keep it simple" concept before that 14th-century philosopher and theologian embraced it, but no one wielded the principle (also known as the law of parsimony) as relentlessly as he did. He used it to counter what he considered the fuzzy logic of his theological contemporaries, and his applications of it inspired 19th-century Scottish philosopher Sir William Hamilton to link Occam with the idea of cutting away extraneous material, giving us the modern name for the principle.
I try to use reputable resources to define words; since words have power! Wikipedia is a user-edited website that literally anyone can edit. The Merriam-Webster Dictionary has been around since 1828 and, in my humble opinion, a better source to define a concept some have disdained (for whatever personal reason).
This underscores, for me, one reason to refrain from the muck of these forums. The title was enticing, but the content left a terrible taste, an uneasy feeling, and depleted too much of my positive energy reservoirs.
Sadly, I think I learned how I used to make others feel with my verbose diatribes.
I would love to have updates along the way and better understand how the client defined successful completion of the goal to the point of no longer requiring your service (for this aspect of transition). Being a member of the LGBTQ+ community and having a number of personal friends who are in the transition phases of MTF and FTM, I’ve never thought to talk with them about this aspect of transition; it intrigues me greatly.
I offer sincerest thanks beyond these simplistic words actually convey!
The link to YouTube indicates a 37-minute video; which places it into the "Long" video status when filtering. I did not watch it longer than a few seconds once I saw we have two very different definitions of a short video.
I also did not trust you as a Hypnotist because your technique using whispering that sounded unprofessional @ borderline 'creepy'. I quickly hit 'STOP' after you ordered me to: "DO IT NOW!"
I'd encourage you to reconsider the technique (but I'm certain it's an intentional attempt to quickly control an individual).
Wishing you the Best
Thank you for your response Tom and Sheila. Tom, I'd appreciate the referral, if available. This client had a sister use hypnosis to resolve similar issues and expressed frustration about her lack of progress with using only talk therapy.
Thanks - Michael
I was contacted by someone who wants to use hypnosis to resolve childhood trauma. She lives outside of the Grand Rapids, Michigan, metropolitan area. If you are in that area and have experience working with clients who've experienced sexual abuse or if you know of a Hypnotist in the area, please message me at Michael@DeeplyRelaxedHypnosis.com. I would like to provide her with your contact information and experience so she can contact you directly. She's motivated to begin working with someone based upon our conversations.
I live in Phoenix, Arizona and the client doesn't have access to a webcam for video conferencing sessions.
Thank you for your help.
