Seven Success Secrets of Hypnotism Practice Many misconceptions about success persist in this work and hopefully I can help you clear your mind so that you might maximize your effectiveness. The first prerequisite for success is a four letter word: "W.O.R.K." But hard work alone is not enough if you work without knowledge or without an awareness of what your efforts are producing. Everyone here is obviously willing and interested in doing the work and no one here believes that if you pray or chant enough affirmations that bags of money will fall from the sky in front of you. #1 MAKING THE APPOINTMENT The first session begins with the telephone call.

I reply, "The first step is for you to come in for a session and in that time I will test you to determine your level of response. I will discuss your problems and goals and at the end of that time I will tell you if hypnosis is indicated for you, how long it will take and what the cost of the program will be." # 2 THE INTAKE INTERVIEW Once the client arrives I spend the first fifteen minutes allowing them to present their problem and completing the intake form. Then I say to them, "How can I help you today?" and they begin to tell me their problem. If you learn the art of intense listening, you are likely to discover the problem in the first five minutes.
