Key occasions for hypnosis in leadership coaching
Getting unstuck and getting going with what we want to achieve, that’s the biggest trait of hypnosis. So hypnocoaching in a business environment can help with any “I’d like to but….” issues. And thus, is strongly linked to self-leadership. Speaking up, making time for what matters, showing up the way we want to, be the person we want to be. Inner beliefs play a huge role here. And hypnosis is a good way to get in touch with them, especially if unconscious, and slightly transform them, opening them up in the direction we want.
In addition, it can help with stress management and resilience.
At the same time, we need to know when not to use coaching hypnosis or what it can’t do for us. First and foremost: There is a difference between hypnosis and hypnotherapy! This is very important. As a responsible coach, I have certain criteria to work with people because I am not a medical professional and therefore can’t offer medical help with trauma or other clinical issues. So, a thorough pe-coaching conversation is important. When I talk to them upfront, I look for certain health conditions and medication or if people have schizophrenia or bipolar diseases, for example. If yes, it’s a big no for hypnocoaching.
Creating a safe space – for both coach and coachee – is important as well. For several reasons, I only work online when I do hypnotherapeutic coaching. This way I protect myself and my client. I make sure the person is not on their own with some subject. This way I want to ensure that things are under control.
