Robert’s Hypnosis Newsletter, June 2018


What’s happened since last time, waaaay back in December?

  • I wrote more blog posts and posted a YouTube video (more below).
  • I beta-tested my new “Mindful Self-Hypnosis” class, so I’m ready to offer it on a regular basis.

Mindful Self-Hypnosis

There are lots of ways of doing (and teaching) self-hypnosis, but I wanted to find a combination that is:

  • Easy to learn (a single one-hour class).
  • Easy to remember.
  • Has a definite series of steps so you can learn it by the numbers.
  • Never asks you to do anything you don’t know how to do.
  • Effective.

Obvious, right? But self-hypnosis isn’t typically taught this way. It’s easy if we allow it to be!

So I’m teaching a mindful self-hypnosis class in my office, currently on the second Wednesday of the month, for just $50 per person. There are still openings in my June 13 class.

What’s special about mindful self-hypnosis?

  • Unlike typical mindfulness meditation, it has a to-do list: a sequence of hypnotic suggestions to help with both general well-being and whatever issues are on your mind today.
  • Unlike typical self-hypnosis, it puts any resistance you might be experiencing to work for you: it’s all part of the process.
  • We mix effective relaxing/deepening techniques from both methods.
  • And it’s all laid out fair and square so you always know what to do next.

You can sign up for the class and learn more details on my Web page.

Relax, it’s Robert’s Hypnosis Newsletter! (Dec 2017)


December sceneWow, it’s been a long time since I sent out a newsletter! But here we are again, safe and sound.

Since it’s been a while, let me summarize some of the reasons you probably subscribed in first place:

  • I write blog posts and videos. Some of these are specifically about hypnosis: some are useful to anybody.
  • I offer hypnotherapy services, both in-person in my office in Corvallis, and worldwide via telephone or Internet video. Hypnotherapy is cool, and it’s way more interesting than traditional talk therapy! It’s also quicker and thus cheaper — I never see anyone for more than 10 sessions, and you’ll most likely see me for only 3-6.
  • I sometimes offer free stuff, like my relaxation recording.

Friends Fly Free

You can bring a friend to your first session for free: for moral support, or because the other person’s curious, or because they’re serious but don’t mind getting a free session! There are no formalities: just schedule on my Web site, and if two of you show up, great.

Free Stuff: Listen to My 30-Minute Relaxation Recording

One of the perks of belonging to this mailing list is my 30-minute relaxation recording. I recorded this a while back. It’s in MP3 format, so you ought to be able to play it on just about anything. Download or play it online here.

How do you use the recording? Find thirty free minutes (bedtime is okay), start the recording, sit back, relax, and follow the instructions. Sitting down or lying down are both fine. (Please don’t listen to it while driving or performing brain surgery). Continue Reading...
