Personality Styles Expert

While I recognize that the time frame is passed, I am also a temperament expert and have used this information for the past 3 years with all of my clients. Not Meyers Briggs, and the assessment provides the core of their motivation, drive, and decision making to enhance the effectiveness of hypnotic suggestions.

Cervical Dystonia

Thanks Kelley. That's what I've thought of as well- stress reduction and relaxation to begin, particularly as it's very present in his professional life during meetings, and emotional release.

Cervical Dystonia

Has anyone had any experience with Cervical Dystonia? I've got a client coming in for a consult, who has read that Hypnosis has been effective for treatment. It has been a long journey for him with numerous PT's, Kinesthesiologists and Neurologists, etc.

How do you hypnotize intellectuals?

 Haha Elizabeth! Ask him why he thinks his friend had success and he is still allowing tobacco to be in control -did his friend want it more than he does? I suspect this comparison may increase his desire to succeed.  Good luck

How do you hypnotize intellectuals?

In my practice, I work with quite a few analytical people, and it sounds like for someone like this 1) What ever it is- has to "make sense" to him- Get really curious with him- ask him Why he's decided to make these changes using Hypnosis- What about it made sense to him? Thus you have suggestions which are in alignment with his  framework. 2) With analytical folks, I don't use the word "feel"- think about what it would be like, imagine, picture,  etc. Not offering anything that would be a stop.  3) If it's smoking, offer any reasons why smoking "just doesn't make sense" (apparently money isn't a pain factor) so perhaps suggest that smoking is allowing a little piece of paper and weed to be "in control" of you and you're obviously too intelligent to allow a little piece of paper and weed to be in control of you!

Experience with Vocal Chord Dysfunction?

Thank you all for your suggestions and information. Melissa, great info- she was diagnosed at National Jewish, has had the voice coach, vocal chord specialist and it does appear to be the type that is not treated with surgery! National Jewish had tried to teach her to use the straws-3 separate times over 2 years, but apparently the hospital came to the conclusion it wasn't working for her. I did conduct and record the session with her today, and directed her to listed to it daily. She was really cute that she really liked the session and had that goofy little grin on her face afterwards! She had fairly low expectations- "anything different that what has been happening recently" and after the session her neck, throat and chest had "much less tightness," and she wants to come back for another session. 

Mom has been really clear that it is not asthma, and steroids are not an option. Mom and dad were both professional athletes, so I think they understand the power of the mind to overcome limitations.  

I attempted to follow all of the suggestions regarding Jacobson progression relaxation. Thank you so much for your input, it was definitely helpful is beginning with this young lady!

Experience with Vocal Chord Dysfunction?

Thanks Fable. Her diagnosing MD 2 years ago suggested Hypnosis. It started with losing her voice, was unable to get air and has had speech therapy to assist with relaxing throat. She has been experiencing breathing spasms, having progressed to being induced by exercise- and she's a competitive gymnast. Asthma inhaler, was minimally beneficial. She is experiencing a whistling noise currently- sporadic with no pattern. Her breathing is restricted and hurts her throat. Physical therapist advised Mom today that she has extreme muscle tension from her abdomen through the top of her head.

My research has begun to indicate throat relaxation and psychiatry as course of treatment, and psychotherapy targeted towards somatoform and conversion disorders.. Hypnotherapy and breathing exercises..Based upon my call with Mom today, I'm suspecting her Temperament (my specialty) is one of significant sensitivity- both intuitive and emotional. 

Thanks for any feedback and suggestions!

Experience with Vocal Chord Dysfunction?

Hi, I've had a recent referral of a 8th grader who has episodic periods of her chords vibrating. It is apparently sporadic right now, but is causing significant stress as it's happening in school, at Gymnastics, etc. I'd appreciate any suggestions. Thanks, Stacey

Blushing problem?

I had an individual inquire about a blushing problem. He's coming as his internet research has indicated Hypnosis as a successful tool with good outcomes for the issue. Based upon his description of when it happens- apparently randomly- although more likely to be when he comes to other's attention; how it feels- he becomes aware of the heat of the blush before he's aware of anxious feelings; fear of blushing has begun to limit his outings.

My first inclination is to address it as an anxiety session with the blush as physical manifestation but I'm interested in hearing from others about their experiences with this issue! Thanks!
