Why Every Hypnotherapist Should Learn How To Record

By | Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy, Podcast, Recording

Why Every Hypnotherapist Should Learn How To Record Consider this, what is one of the most valuable tools a hypnotherapist has? Of course, it’s their voice. Sure, we learn a whole string of techniques and therapeutic approaches in order to offer therapy to our clients however, without the voice to deliver them, we may struggle to get any real form of outcome. It’s our voice that is really our definable tool and one that allows us to do what we want to do successfully. I’m an advocate for every hypnotherapist learning how to record their voice. It is our tool of the trade. It can often be one of the reasons someone may choose to come and see you because they feel that you have the right voice for them. They’ve heard it and they can feel that relaxation immediately. It gives them the confidence that you’re the right therapist for them. For those who are unsure, here are some of the top reasons why you should learn how to record your sessions.

Sally is the Executive Director of Transgender Victoria, Treasurer of Bisexual Alliance Victoria, Co-Facilitator of TransFamily Victoria and was awarded the GLBTI Person of the Year Award as part of the annual GLOBE (Gay Lesbian Organisation of Business and Enterprise) Community Awards in 2015 for her 17 years of advocacy for transgender people.

Sally also talks about the main challenges facing the transgender community nowadays ranging from issues around documentation, anti-discrimination laws, funding (particularly for education) as well as health and medical care issues, exploring a little around the ‘guinea pig syndrome’ that exists in dealing with health and medical professionals.

OUTthink Podcast – Imagine Waking Up and Finding Yourself Disabled

By | LGBTQI, OUTthink, Podcast | No Comments

OUTthink Podcast – Imagine Waking Up and Finding Yourself Disabled Imagine, for a moment, what it would be like to wake up one morning and to find yourself in a position where you have become so disabled, you are no longer capable of walking. Imagine what that would feel like if you had reached this point after years of great health. In the latest OUTthink podcast, this is the exact scenario that our guest had found himself in. About Joe Joe Busuttil had been the picture of perfect health. He had been a personal trainer and had spent considerable time working out to ensure that he had a body he would be proud of. He had worked on the gay scene and was also a hypnotherapist who realised the importance of the mind matching the body. A little over two years ago, Joe was about to embark on an Atlantis Cruise in Asia, when he experienced a weakness of the muscles in his leg that prevented him from being able to walk. Upon further exploration, the diagnosis was made that Joe had Vasculitis; a nerve condition that, while debilitating, is also curable. This began a journey for Joe, learning how…

By | LGBTQI, OUTthink, Podcast | No Comments

In the latest OUTthink podcast, Lawrence talks with Lisa Torney about the topic of sexual and gender fluidity. In this part one, we explore what is sexual fluidity as well as taking a closer look at the labels which people choose to identify who they are sexually. Given that the list is ever-expanding, this podcast serves as a great introduction to the range of non-standard ‘gay’ and ‘straight’ labels that exist and are used to help make the many diverse groups that fall under the banner of LGBTQIA+.

Why I Created OUTthink.

By | LGBTQI, OUTthink, Podcast, Shame | No Comments

Why I Created OUTthink – An LGBTQIA Podcast It’s an exciting day for me as, today, I publish my first podcast, ‘OUTthink’. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to sit down and explore topics relating to the LGBTQIA community with people who can offer an amazing insight. Within those conversations, there are stories of shame, stigma, alienation, abandonment and, most importantly, self-acceptance and self-love. These are stories of people who have been thrown into some unexpected and difficult situations and have managed to make their way to acceptance, understanding, empathy and pride. The reason why I wanted to do this podcast was simple; people often don’t put mental health into the spotlight, let alone some of the added issues that come with belonging to the LGBTQIA community. When we are faced with unresolved shame and stigma in our lives, what holds it in place is keeping it secret. Within these podcasts, we allow the thoughts, feelings and emotions that are often not discussed to be brought to light, to be shared with the world and to allow those often uncomfortable thoughts and feelings to be released. Within these podcasts, you may hear a…

Top Tips For Recording Your Hypnotherapy Scripts

By | Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy, Recording | No Comments

Top Tips For Recording Your Hypnotherapy Scripts Technology has made it increasingly easier over the years for many hypnotherapists to produce high-quality audio hypnotherapy recordings at home yet one of the things I have repeatedly noticed over the years I’ve worked in this industry is that many hypnotherapists (and, for that matter, therapists in general) seem to be rather ‘technophobic’. And, quite simply, there is no reason to be. I often think of my mother who once told me she was afraid to go on her computer in case she ‘did something wrong and broke the internet’. I let her know that the internet was more likely to break her unfortunately than anything she could do. Over time and with experience, that fear has managed to subside nicely and while the internet isn’t something that is necessarily her cup of tea, she knows that her ability to damage it is pretty limited. So why would a hypnotherapist want to embrace technology and learn how to record audio of their scripts? From a business perspective, these recordings are incredibly useful in either being offered out in return for prospective client’s details so that they can be marketed to. When you consider…
