Clean Language For Hypnotists: The Bootleg Tapes

Clean Language For Hypnotists: The Bootleg Tapes

James Tripp and Judy Rees

Course description

A note from James Tripp

"People who have been following my blogging and hypnosis teaching have heard me reference Clean Language MANY times. 'Back in the day' studying Clean Language was a huge game-changer for me - indeed it is one of the key influences on my original Hypnosis Without Trance approach to directly facilitating hypnotic phenomena.

"But going back to the beginning, the first place it had an impact for me was on my client work - I went from using impersonal hypnotic change work processes to using trances built around the clients own conceptual and metaphorical material (relating to resources and outcomes) and 'BOOM'! The shift was huge!

"One of the problems people face when they are initially developing as hypnotists/hypnotherapists is that they have limited options as to what to do with their skills.

"People initially usually go down one of two paths:

1. Pre-formed 'scripts'
2. 'Recipe' based processes

"The downside of this is that the client is being asked to engage with something that is not necessarily inherently meaningful to them (and often not especially to the hypnotist either!), with the result being low levels of buy-in and impact.

"So what is the solution? Well, one powerful route is to deeply personalise the suggestions and trance work. To do this we need to be able to draw out the significant conceptual and metaphorical raw materials from the client, and this is where Clean Language really shines.

"In this training we will be showing you both sides of the process - the elicitation with Clean Language and the creation of custom suggestions and 'trances' using hypnotic language. (There is an assumption that you have at least some familiarity with hypnotic languaging to begin with, though no familiarity with Clean Language is required).

"In addition to the above, it is worth noting that Clean Language used alone can be powerfully 'hypnotic', and that the process of elicitation or 'modelling' of outcomes and resources is of great therapeutic benefit alone (regardless of whether or not you use what you uncover to create suggestions and trances)."

A note from Judy Rees

"The creator of Clean Language, David Grove, was a hypnotist and NLP-trained clinical change worker, working primarily with trauma. For many years he would only share his discoveries with officially-registered hypnotherapists, who seemed to understand their huge potential.

"I was one of those who helped to popularise David's work for a wider audience, including the business audience. But in the process it has perhaps lost something of its original essence - and become less accessible to the people who'll find it most useful.

"Developing this workshop with my friend James brings the story full circle. It puts the power of Clean Language in the hands of hypnotists: people who are in a position use it most easily and effectively. Who knows what will happen as a result!"

James Tripp: master practitioner

by Charles Whitaker
An excellent resource for hypnotherapists, old and new. A great introduction to modern hypnosis practice for clean language practitioners as well as for well established hypnotherapists. This includes 2 videos of James doing a demonstration with commentary. Many fascinating insights. Totally recommend it.

So much more than I expected!

I just finished watching the course. What a beautiful experience. I am a hypnotherapist and from the first time I came in contact with Clean Language, I thought of it as a hypnotic process and I was wondering what would be some good ways to implement clean in my hypnosis sessions, apart from the ways I already did. Well, this course has given me a very comprehensive answer and so much more than that. It is packed full of very useful ideas and bigger and smaller pieces of gold of different ways a hypnotherapist can use to achieve better results in the change process. Ideas and professional advice that go deep into details which show the depth of knowledge and experience of the presenters, and which will prove useful to more situations than I could imagine before I attended the course. Details that I am sure will make a big difference in my sessions and presentations. At the same time, the material that James in particular gives out is so condense that I am sure I am going to get even more out of this course each time I watch it. And while all these different techniques and ideas are being taught, the presenters are also careful to tacitly increase the students’ ability to really go out and apply what they learned. The format of the course made me feel as if I were there, among the students, which, for me, was an effective way of being immersed in the material. This course opened up a doorway for me to go out and practice in new ways, and learn, from my clients, myself, and my interactions with people, and it also gave me useful ideas of how to apply even more things that I am going to learn about clean language in the future, in a hypnotic way. Thank you James and Judy for this wonderful course :)

Fantastic course!

I am really enjoying this course. Judy and James create a really good atmosphere on the group calls, it is well organized with people breaking into smaller groups and practising activities and discussing things, then coming back together again as a larger group. There is structure but also freedom in how the course is organized, so the people who were on the calls had a lot of space to ask questions, shape the direction and format of the course and so on. I think that Judy and James make a wonderful duo as they are both brilliant in their own right, and when they come together they have a good rapport and can provide different styles which I think complement (as well as contrast!) each other really nicely. Their passion and enthusiasm for the subject also shines through, as well as a great sense of humour which is present in the group, which always makes for a better learning experience, and a better experience generally! Each call has a slightly different format, so there is variety. The attendees on the course had useful contributions and participation, and it is great to learn from all of it. I have learned some great stuff, it has made me think, and also smile and laugh a fair amount too! I hope that Judy and James keep making this kind of material together as I think the results are very enjoyable. There's also some stuff on the side like demos from James and Judy which are excellent learning resources too. Overall this is highly recommended!

Fantastic

by Jamie Graham
As a hypnotherapist, Clean Language has been a huge help to me in my work.. This course especially, has helped me incorporate it more fully into my practice, and taken my skills onto another level. I've already noticed massive differences in both my skills, and the outcomes for clients. If you're involved in any type of change-work, this course will help you get much better results. You owe it to yourself... and your clients

Clean Language on Steroids!

by David Pannell
I have studied Clean Language in the past and I use it as a big part of my change-work but oh boy, am I impressed with what James and Judy have put together here!! Having James give his insights into Clean Language and how it fits in with his approach to change-work was extremely valuable but then seeing him actually weaving Clean Language tools and questions into his hypnotic change-work in the demos really is the difference that makes the difference for me. I'm only 3 sessions into the course and I'm feeling so inspired I just had to share this review! What *kind* of inspired? (you might ask, having watched the first video) Well, I'm convinced this collection of videos and resources is going to have a profound impact upon my coaching and change-work and I will be returning to the course again and again. Highly recommended!

Excellent resource

by claire mcgowan
The tapes give an excellent introduction to clean language, and have a really nice mix of perspectives. Hypnotists, hypnotherapist and those that are purely clean language create a really interesting forum for ideas to bounce off each other. I have found this extremely useful, thank you!

Excellent course
