Just the other day an 86 year old gentleman came to me for a hypnosis session. He was concerned because his golf game was not going well. A particular shot that was always easy for him had become a real problem. He was losing concentration.

He wondered if I could fix that with just one round of hypnosis. I told him that certainly was possible but I couldn’t guarantee that it wouldn’t take two or even three sessions. Basically it depended on how willing he was to relax completely and trust me to give the right suggestions.

He asked me if I was familiar with golf. I told him I had never watched a game or played but I was quite sure I could help him if he would just tell me exactly what he wanted to accomplish. So he outlined what was happening and what he wanted to have.

Apparently the big challenge was to keep his eyes focused on the ball and maintain his body leaning forward as he hit the shot headed for the green. I put that particular intent into his hypnosis session. I also gave him a method for intensely focused relaxation.

It was very easy to get him into a deep state of hypnosis. After working with him for about 45 minutes, I brought him back to full wakening consciousness. Then I asked him if he would be willing to let me know the results of our work together. He indicated he had another game on the coming Tuesday. Yes he promised to let me know one way or the other.

When he called on Wednesday this is what he said: “I played golf yesterday and it went well, it went very well. So, I thank you very much for your help. If anybody asks how come I became such a great golfer, I’ll tell them about you. Thank you dear and again thank you very much for your help.”

I always welcome feedback from my hypnosis clients. Sometimes their challenges can be resolved in just one session, sometimes three or more depending on the nature of the problem and the length of time it has lingered. I have worked with weight loss, heavy pervasive fears, test taking and so much more.

Call today if you would like to discuss your personal needs.
