Today was the third Hypnosis Amsterdam Meetup, with a nice turn-up of 10 people.
While we found a nicer corner this time, the environment was still not ideal.
Unfortunately there is no alternative yet. I've looked around a lot and haven't been able to find anything to my liking. Only one person has given me a suggestion so far (thank you), but it came too late for this one. I'm looking into it for January's meetup!
Only myself and one other hypnotist were available today. Today we focused on some specific subjects: VAK(Visual/Audio/Kinesthetic) inductions and Storytelling.
The first two inductions were done with (random) suggestions of the other people present to challenge ourselves.
First we discussed storytelling. How to make a fun story and the various ways you can use them into an induction (or another session).
We did go off on a tangent a bit during the discussion into Tabletop RPG areas, because of misconceptions and storytelling.
The second big subject was reactions and abreactions. The major focus here was to remember to stay calm and accept that you are not a therapist. Giving comfort is fine, of course.
Again I've requested feedback on the format and I got a bit more feedback as I'm trying to refine the structure.
Thank you everyone for coming, your participation and feedback!
