The course includes a number of hypnosis demonstrations. Access The Course Here Saving 95%

I will also share my views about doing solution focused therapy, based on over 20 years of working with a wide range of people using this approach. My opinion differs from many other solution focused practitioners and trainers around some areas due to my knowledge of the work of Milton Erickson and my experiences with hypnosis. I then share various techniques and talk about pre-session change as something to kick-start success and empowerment right from the first session, and the power of scaling, I also talk about best hopes, which is about establishing what the client wants from therapy, and exceptions, which are those times when the clients problem didn’t exist but they would have expected it to exist, or when it did happen, yet they would have expected it not to happen, and when it just doesn’t happen. Exceptions are where solutions and insights to the clients problem, and the pattern of the problem can be found. Access The Course Here Saving 85%

In this Understanding and Working With Autistic Client’s in Therapy course I share the different challenges and traits autistic people have and how these can manifest and impact on the problem the client is presenting with, how they can manifest and impact on the therapy and how you can work with the client and present your therapy to get the best results. You will also have an idea of the kinds of things which clients may say and do that could lead to you as a therapist to feel that the client could be autistic. This isn’t a course teaching you how to do therapy or coaching, the expectation is that you are already trained to do therapy or coaching if you are working as a therapist or coach. This course teaches you about the traits, challenges and strengths of autistic clients and how the client being autistic can impact on their life and on how they respond in therapy to give you ideas about understanding autistic clients better and have ideas and insights for how you can best help them. The course doesn’t teach you how to ‘treat’ autism as autism isn’t something you can cure. Autistic people are born autistic and can’t be ‘cured’ of autism, but I am open about my own personal experiences within the course and share my own examples and examples of experiences of people I have worked with to illustrate what behaviours others might see and what is going on for the autistic person in that moment, and what things can help the autistic person, like what skills they might need to be taught to reduce the impact of certain challenges the client may have on the presenting problem.

The Relaxing Boat Trip (Free Sleep Story)

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-iuydy-ab0939

(Free) This hypnotic sleep story for grown-ups is about a man walking through the woods to a lake where he has a boat moored, he travels in his boat out onto the lake and drifts into an afternoon reverie where he dreams about being in a library and reading a book about Jack and the Beanstalk, only the story isn’t quite how he remembers it and he realises that it has been written to teach him something. After reading the book he places it back and finds a secret tunnel, he follows that tunnel deep under the library where he finds another book in a strange unknown language he seems to be able to understand, he goes through that book before finding another secret tunnel through a cave and out over looking a valley of dinosaurs, he goes into the valley for a while before finding his way back to the library and then drifting back from his reverie to discover the sun has set. He watches the milky way and shooting stars and drifts off to sleep. In the morning he wakes up to the warm morning sun on his face and a mist hovering low over the lake, travels back to shore and walks back through the woods.

ASMR Whisper Hypnosis (Male British Voice) for Personal Development

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-247sr-aa275f

(Free) This is an old ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) whisper hypnosis track of mine (so an ASMR male British voice). I made it in 2009. It is only a short track. I have always been fascinated with the feeling of entering hypnosis that some people would describe if I induced hypnosis in specific ways, like using a deep rumbling voice for words like ‘deeper’ and talking in a whisper, and also when inducing hypnosis with gentle touch, like gently, almost imperceptibly lifting someones arm and touching their hand and wrist area to get arm levitation and focusing attention with soft feather like touches.

You can also find this and dozens more on my Podcast (https://danjoneshypnosis.podbean.com/) and Dan Jones Hypnosis YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/danjoneshypnosis).

This is best listened to through headphones..

I have been going through many of my hundreds of old audio recordings, I’m sure I will share more here over the coming days and weeks…

The Snowman (Sleep Story)

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-btp3p-a279dd

(Free) This hypnotic bedtime story is The Snowman, about a child making a snowman which comes to life (I know, I know, the idea has been done – but there is no ‘walking in the air’, or child flying around with a snowman).

I have two more Christmas sleep stories which will be added to my sleep stories podcast over the next few hours. There won’t be additional posts here on my blog about them, so check out the Dan Jones Hypnosis podcast for all free and premium stories.

Develop Skills Like Jedi From Star Wars

Did you know, I have created four hours of training for the Church of Jediism? (3 hours 40 minutes of training across 18 episodes and a 22 minute bonus video (below) about how to connect with and use the force).

Back in 2017 I was asked by Daniel Jones (not myself!) the founder of the Church of Jediism and author of Become The Force whether I would like to make some training courses for the Church. I wasn’t going to pass up the opportunity to teach others some of the Jedi knowledge I have, teaching my knowledge to those interested in learning is something I like doing. I was asked to make a 6-part course that was about an hour long. I was asked to make a Jedi Communication course. I did this, but quickly felt that more was needed. I felt that the communication had to go with good awareness skills, so I created this course, and felt that all of this had to be on a foundation of living a life from a more Jediist perspective, so I made a third course.

All of these three courses were compiled into a single 18-episode package available from the Church of Jediism. Following creating this package of Jedi training I was offered the opportunity to talk and demonstrate on a panel at MCM Comic-Con in London. Being autistic, this was terrifying, it was VERY busy. Then a month or two later I was asked to talk and demonstrate on a panel at the YouTube Space in London.

I was asked to create some training teaching how to develop skills that Jedi’s display in Star Wars (like the type of skills used by Obi Wan when he says “These aren’t the droids you are looking for”) and increased Jedi awareness training (like when Obi Wan has “a bad feeling about this” and their increased reaction times), and to increase your perception and understanding of the world around you, and a Jedi life balance training, so that you can lead a balanced, harmonious Jedi-like lifestyle.

You can access my training courses here and learn more about them below (at the very bottom is a video guiding you through a process of connecting with and using the force…

Each module consists of six episodes. Below is an overview of some of what you will learn on this training.

Jediist Communication Skills: 
(Episode are: The Power of Breathing, Communicating Hidden Messages, The Power of Implication, The Power of Vague Language and Metaphors, The Nature of Reality, Healing Communication)

Jediist Awareness Training:

  • Learn how to increase your awareness so that you can see, hear and feel more in the world around you and recognise sensory information which previously went unnoticed
  • Discover the world of patterns of communication which gives you the ability to know more about what is going on inside people’s minds than they realise they are revealing
  • Embed and enhance these new learnings with an opening your awareness guided meditation
Jediist Life Balance Training:

If you are interested in this online training you can visit the Church of Jediism website to sign up for it. This is the only place this training of mine is available and to my knowledge this is the only training like this available anywhere.

Help With Depression

Research has shown that in almost all cases depression is not a biological or genetic illness. The biological changes that occur are the result of the depression not the cause. In some cases the biological effects are caused by diet, and pregnancy can also cause depression, although most cases of post-natal depression are caused by the highly emotional thinking the depressed person is doing rather than being driven by the chemical changes. And most depression that ‘runs in families’ is due to learning how to respond to the World around us how the parents or grand parents did, learning a depression way of responding in the same way that a child learns to walk, talk and behave from parents and adults in their life.

Studies carried out in the US to try to find out what works when treating depression showed that to quickly lift depression what was needed was a mixture of cognitive, behavioural and interpersonal therapies. This has now been improved upon by also utilising a solution-focused approach, a human givens approach and guided imagery or hypnosis.

When a therapist works with a client to help them ensure their basic needs are being met and helps to get their focus of attention off of worrying and ruminating and onto problem solving and relaxing the mind, depression often lifts quickly. To significantly lift depression can now often takes less than three sessions. Depending on how depressed someone is, some people can make the changes they need to make themselves without help just because they know what changes are needed to be made, whereas other people need a little encouragement, and some need a therapist or coach that can help them to make the changes. And although depression can be lifted quickly that doesn’t mean that depression is lifted quickly with everyone. There can be a lot going on in someone’s life that has led to the depression and that maintains the depression that needs to all be addressed before the depression is finally able to be lifted for good.

Most depression is caused by emotional worrying

It could be worrying about a past problem or event, present problem or event or a future problem or event. This worrying causes over dreaming at night. When you dream too much it inhibits the release of serotonin and is almost as active as being awake. It also reduces the abilities of the immune system. All of this leads to waking up early as your brain wants to stop you from dreaming excessively, then often managing to get back to sleep yet still waking tired and unmotivated. This can then start off the next days’ cycle of worrying.

When depressed your thinking style changes as you are in a highly emotional state of mind. It can be like walking around in a trance (I would say you are walking around in a trance). You start thinking that everything has always been bad and always will be and that if anything good ever happens it won’t last, or it was only a one-off good thing, or ‘looking back on it, it wasn’t that good really’. Because you are in a highly emotional state you can’t think effectively about your problems so they can seem easily overwhelming because the emotional part of the brain and the logical part of the brain are two different areas, so when you are in any highly emotional state, whether it is depression, or even love, you don’t see different options, you don’t notice all the information about a situation, you become blinkered or blinded by the emotional trance you are in making it hard to see a way out.

To lift depression clients can learn to relax. This can be in many ways. One of the best is to do 7-11 breathing which is where you breathe in deeply to the count of 7 then out to the count of 11. By doing this with the out breath longer than the in breath you trigger the relaxation response. Just 3 or 4 deep 7-11 breaths will help to relax a client and focus their mind.

Next the client can challenge their thinking by thinking about what it is that they are worrying about and problem solving it. Also they can spend time each morning closing their eyes and truly imagining some good things about the upcoming day. At night or in the evening also spend a few moments to imagine what it will be like to feel much better, who will be the first to notice? How will they know? What will their behaviour be like? Really imagining it and feeling it.

AS SOON AS CLIENTS STOP WORRYING THEIR SLEEP WILL IMPROVE AND THE DEPRESSION WILL RAPIDLY START TO LIFT.

I cover depression on my course ‘Introduction To Overcoming Emotional Problems’ (Coming Soon) Which introduces about basic emotional needs, innate skills and abilities, and a variety of psychological problems and ideas about how best to treat them.

Below is a set of two self help tracks that can help to support people in lifting depression and anxiety. There is also a comments section. I look forward to your comments about the article, about the tracks, and if you have come here because you have been feeling depressed I look forward to hearing your progress and experience, and what you have found helpful to move on that you think would be helpful for others to know.

Feel free to share this article with others that you think may benefit from the article or the tracks.

Help With Anxiety

Anxiety is the natural survival response to run or fight being triggered at the wrong time. This response is designed to help you but in modern times this is often triggered by events from job interviews to social situations etc…

Anxiety and panic attacks are caused by a misuse of the imagination. For example worrying about an upcoming presentation you will be giving. Each time you imagine how bad it will go you create a template that your mind follows that tells it how it should feel about that event. Because you have the ability to use your imagination well enough to affect you, this means if you imagine it going well and look forward to it then that is the template that you lay down. This works by really building up the experience vividly in your mind getting pleasant, desirable feelings linked to the event.

When you have panic attacks or get anxious it shuts down the digestive system and all non-essential systems. It prepares your body to fight, run or freeze (playing dead). These responses could save your life in the appropriate situations. Even if it feels like you are going to die, you won’t. The feelings are because of the digestive system shutting down and because of the adrenaline released into the body. Most people say it feels like butterflies in their stomach, or a churning sensation.

Some people believe they will collapse or faint. Even if you do pass out your breathing will go back to normal and you will come round again. If you have a panic attack, rate the anxiety on a scale out of 10 and you can keep track of how quickly it is going. The chemicals released into the body that cause the feelings of anxiety leave the body after only a short while.

Whenever you are feeling stressed or anxious or just want to relax you can try 7 – 11 breathing.

Breathing in to the count of 7 then out to the count of 11.

You can learn the AWARE technique. Whenever you get anxious or have a panic attack you can remember AWARE:

A = Accept the anxiety, don’t fight it

W= Watch your anxiety, rate it from 1-10 and watch as that rating changes

A = Act with the anxiety, behave normally & do what you intended to do, breathe normally or do 7-11 breathing

R = Repeat all of the above steps until it goes down to an comfortable level

E = Expect the best, what you fear most normally never happens, mentally rehearse experiences where you thought you might have felt anxious in the past but surprise yourself when you don’t.

You can also do some mental rehearsal or guided imagery.

For Example:

‘Close your eyes, relax, vividly imagine watching yourself remaining calm whilst doing something in the future you would usually have found caused anxiety. Then imagine seeing yourself in that scene and notice how pleasant it feels to have this different response. Then once you have practised seeing yourself remaining calm and responding as you would like, you can imagine stepping into the scene and experiencing it in this new way as if you are really there, seeing what you would see, hearing what you would hear, and feeling the new calm or appropriate feelings. Then rehearse this regularly.’

During a panic attack if you take control of your breathing this will help you take control of the panic, if you feel it coming you could chew some gum or eat a small amount of food because you can’t be anxious fully at the same time as having your digestive system working.

You can practice sitting down and relaxing and then anchor that relaxation response. This response can then be fired off when you are in a situation that may make you feel anxious. You can practice this anchoring and firing the relaxation response, imagining being in situations that would normally cause anxiety and using the anchor to relax. The more you practice this the stronger the response will be.

Below are two tracks for improving well-being and reducing anxiety and depression. They can be played on the site or downloaded (small writing under the track with a link saying ‘download mp3’).

There is also a comments section below where you can leave comments or questions. And if you know anyone that this article would benefit feel free to share it with them.
