from Marea Goodin-McKay
The word “Resilience” kept popping up for me - during my supervision session, talking with a hypnotherapy colleague through to talking with many friends in the “corporate” space and a family member and friend in The Police.
Resilience was and still is trending in the HR departments of NZ workplaces and this, along with mental health issue recognition, is also being visited as a health and safety requirement with some Corporates/Companies having it in their “tick box” goals, missions statements and even as a basic requirement to meet ACC and or health and safety requirements within their specific industries to be regarded as a good employer. GOOD NEWS!!
Working in this space by way of workshops has been quickly taken up by many advisors. For me, I find the fit with hypnotherapy and NLP a natural one, however when working with many employers I find they shy away from the terms surrounding the other trending word “Mindfulness” and want good, basic and easy to understand “everyday resilience” tips and tools for their employees and management staff to take away and easily use.
I noted and individual working as a resilience advisor had switched up the term from Mindfulness or hypnosis to “Mind Engineering” but using the same basic tools we all do with our hypnotherapy and NLP knowledge.
Personally I like the term “Mental Immunity” and discovered this was coined, from what I can see, by His Holiness, the Dalai Lama. To quote from my reading of The Book of Joy, Lasting Happiness in a Changing World, his plain English definition which I use with my clients is “Mental Immunity is just learning to avoid the destructive emotions and to develop the positive ones”. He goes on to say “…just as a healthy immune system and healthy constitution protects your body against potentially hazardous viruses and bacteria, mental immunity creates a healthy disposition of the mind so that it will be less susceptible . . . .” People in a busy workplace and living a busy life not only can understand this, but want it.
So when you have an opportunity to work with an individual or group, I say remind them that just as they take time to go to the gym, or get a flu shot each winter, so too should they consider their mental immunity and find time to boost it in some way to ensure they have good overall resilience.
Give them your business card and encourage them to make regular times with you ☺

Client Support Recordings - From Cassette Tape to MP3
By Grant Boddington
I first started in Hypnotherapy, audio cassette tapes were the current
state of the art in support recordings for clients. I would record my
scripts directly onto a cassette recorder to create a "master" track.
Then I'd dub off copies one at a time, in real time - which meant that a
20 minute recording took 20 minutes to copy! Every copy cycle reduced
the quality of the audio on the master, until I had to start again with a
fresh recording. Oh how times have changed!
Then Compact Discs (CDs)
become the new benchmark. Things got a whole lot different! I
recorded onto my computer using software that I could use to edit the
raw audio - changing tones, speeds and even copying sections from one
recording into another. That saved a lot of time with the standard
induction, deepener and awakening segments. When I created a new
recording, I could just record the intervention segment and add the
pre-recorded standard induction, deepener and awakenings to it. So flexible! I
created CDs by the thousands - most shipped off to clients overseas. And because I was one of the 1st Hypnotherapists in the world to offer CD recordings, it was very lucrative in the early days of the internet.
today, I do still offer CDs for some clients, most of my support
recordings now are supplied as MP3 files. MP3s are a compressed (smaller size) audio file; usually converted from the larger (and slightly better sound quality) WAV files that I'd used on CDs.
I offer my clients four free options for delivery of the MP3 audio recordings:
(i) They can download the MP3 file from my online storage facility.
(ii) I can email the MP3 file to them as an attachment.
(iii) I can "bluetooth" transfer the MP3 file from my smartphone to theirs.
(iv) I can provide them with a free mini MP3 Player with the chosen MP3 recording on a Micro SD Card.
latter has become the favorite of most of my clients - as it looks way
more expensive that it actually is! Plus, for my part, it takes only a
few seconds to save an MP3 onto an SD Card! I source the MP3 Players,
Earphones, Charging Cables and Micro SD Cards from overseas (usually Ebay) and
put them all together into a package with full printed instructions.
It looks very professional and is a great free add-on for my clients.
usually keep several MP3 Player packs in my clinic, along with a big selection of
SD Cards with my various standard support recordings already on them.
So all I do is simply pop the appropriate recording (which is already on a Micro SD Card) into each client's pack. As a 5th option, sometimes when
a client prefers to listen to a recording on their phone, I can just simply provide them the appropriate MP3 on a Micro SD Card to insert directly
to their phone.
So from the analogue cassette tapes of last century, which took 20 minutes to duplicate, today it takes about 4 seconds to send a digital MP3 file from my computer to a waiting Micro SD Card - which is about the size of a small fingernail! What's next?
Professional Indemnity and Public Liability Insurance for Hypnotherapists
For those of you who are seeking professional insurance, Murray Carter from Christchurch has done some research and come up with what seems to be a good option. Apparently, Bizcover (who used to offer Professional Indemnity Insurance) no longer cover this, but he found that AON Insurance provided the cover that he required.
So if you're in the market for cover, contact them and ask about their "Health Professionals Insurance Plan". According to their application form, the cost for Clinical Hypnotherapists is $419.75 plus GST.
So if you're looking for this type of cover, contact AON Insurance for an application form.
