Seeing the different induction used in a very resistant client, is very helpful to remove any sense of uncertainty of your capacity. You could see how adding additional depth will sometimes be necessary, and ultimately will yield better results.

I like how Dr. Kappas said that a lot of the time we are de-hypnotizing people rather than hypnotizing them. I found that to be very interesting, showing the power of hypnosis, and when it’s in a controlled state, how it can be used to our advantage however, if it’s allowed to have free reign, it can cause a lot of problems for people.
