says only With Lots Of Practice can you become a Stop Smoking Hypnosis Specialist
But You Won’t Learn It From A Course Either.Read This article fully. !
Professor Petrocelli said, I spent over ten years playing with primative
hypnosis techniques which I culled from the early hypnosis ‘pulp’ books to achieve change with hundreds of people, from friends, family members, to any stranger who ventured within the sound of my voice before I even knew that a hypnosis training course existed.
Because there was no available training at the time in NYC, I formed
‘pre-internet’, the first and largest free Hypnosis / NLP practice group in
the world, called Sleepwalkers, and 3 to 5 nights a week for three years
I held free hypnosis practice and training meetings (about 3 hours each)
in different locations(friends apartments, the local library, the park,
Barnes and Nobles common areas) in the tri-state area
(NY, NJ, and Connecticut) and
I taught thousands the basic Elman and NLP rapport and languaging
skills where WE ACTUALLY PRACTICED the skills immediately after
The NYC Sleepwalkers Hypnosis organization grew so big internationally (it wasn’t
non-profit, it was ‘no profit’ or bette
r still ‘out-of-my-pocket’.
For about 5 years after, many hypnosis teachers sort me out and
‘courted me’ because I was putting boatloads of students through
their courses …. The NGH made me #1 on their hit list because
we had such youthful groups taking an interest in hypnosis, they
saw me as competition.
An interesting thing .. many of these students who received their
so called certification from one of these big orgs at the time, came
back to sleepwalkers saying that they learned more in the free
Sleepwalker sessions than the several grand
they just blew on these so-called hypnosis training courses.
I spent maybe a hundred grand after that … taking everyone’s hypnosis
course I could afford .. I realized, I learned way more from a book and going out
and implementing, DOING THE WORK …. getting the experience ……
I’ve had to retrain hypnotists who have come to work at my
NYC hypnosis Center… to DO HYPNOSIS from a
Some big organizations keep you the perennial student, always
hoping, always dreaming of doing this work some day … well .. for
many … that someday doesn’t come …….
I say, get out there. You will learn from your mistakes.
Have the dignity to call up those whom you worked with (or charged) and
ask… ASK …. how they’re feeling after the session. What they notice is
different in their lives after the session? You will learn more from
‘doing’ than many of these Big Org’s worthless courses. Any really
good hypnotist will tell you they didn’t walk out of class and have
the skills necessary ….
