SNAP! Unhypnotizing Hypnotherapy! Who was Dave Elman? Cheryl Elman, guest.

Cheryl Elman, CH, CMT

Cheryl Elman joins Dr. Bunny at the HypnoThoughts Live 2018 conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, to discuss hypnotherapy, and one of the great hypnotists of the 20th century: Dave Elman. Cheryl is the daughter-in-law of Dave Elman, and the President of the Dave Elman Hypnosis Institute.

Tune in and learn what made Dave Elman’s hypnosis method unique, how you can learn hypnosis through the Dave Elman Hypnosis Institute, and so much more! A truly fascinating interview!

Who was Dave Elman?
When people talk about great hypnotists of the 20th century, two names come to mind. Milton Erickson… and Dave Elman.   They have equal stature.

This is surprising because Erickson published dozens of books and papers on hypnosis and was actively promoted by his followers who wrote dozens of books about Erickson, but Elman published only one book, “Findings in Hypnosis” (later published as “Hypnotherapy”). Why is Dave Elman held in such high esteem? His induction is that good!

Erickson’s inductions could take a very long time, but Elman would place a subject into deep trance in less than a minute!

Elman published only one book, but that ONE book had such an impact that many consider Elman to be the greatest hypnotist of all time.

About Dave Elman (source: Wikipedia):
In 1949, Elman decided to pursue teaching hypnosis to doctors and dentists. From 1949 through 1962, he traveled extensively throughout America teaching his training course in hypnosis as a series of lessons called “Medical Relaxation”, which he published as audio recordings. He also recorded a series of recordings entitled “Hypno-Analysis” which were actual sessions in hypnosis that he referenced for his course. In 1963, after a long illness, he decided to write his findings on the subject. It was a 336-page book which he dictated to his wife, Pauline, a stenographer, and then gave to his son Robert Elman, an author and editor, to edit. He copyrighted and self-published the book in 1964 under the title Findings in Hypnosis.

About the Dave Elman Hypnosis Institute:
The Dave Elman Hypnosis Institute has been resurrected in the spirit of DAVE ELMAN who in 1949 demonstrated his rapid induction methods and knowledge of pain control to doctor friends.  As a result, he was asked to provide a course on hypnosis to physicians and dentists.  His students often researched further medical applications and reported these back to Dave to be included in his next course..  His courses on hypnosis taught more physicians this subject than any other teacher before or since.  The audio recording of the classes and his book HYPNOTHERAPY are regarded as classics in the field of Medical Hypnosis

About Glenn Bryant:

Glenn Bryant is an English Psychic Medium. His skills incorporate mediumship, clairaudience, clairsentience, clairvoyance, clairolfactrience and clairgustance, as well as psychometry and other inspirational sensitivities.

Glenn has worked on the theatre and Spiritualist church circuit in England for many years and regularly demonstrate mediumship to large audiences at expositions as well as at private and public functions. He also provides Reiki, private one to one readings, psychic/mediumship development workshops, and offer TV and radio shows, media work, interviews and investigations.

After discovering his psychic abilities early in life, Glenn disregarded them as he got with things. In his 20s, he began learning meditation techniques before the sensitivities came flooding back. Glenn studied them with a passion and desire for answers.

Glenn was being made redundant from a promising banking career when the universe offered him a new lifestyle. He had learned to trust his gut instinct by now, and was thrilled with the opportunity to work in an industry where he could bring true healing. This was because he met his Australian wife to be at the Arthur Findlay College in England, and moved to Australia in 2012. They decided that he would move to Australia and utilize his psychic skills for a new career.

Glenn’s sensitivities, as well as his skills developed to the point where he was appearing regularly on TV and radio, and helps many private clients. In 2017, the chance came to move to the USA where he and his wife could run a business together, promoting alternative and traditional wellbeing practitioners, to bring healing on a bigger scale.

Glenn has studied at many places including:

  • The Spiritualist Association of Great Britain, London
  • The Arthur Findlay College in Stansted, England
  • The College of Psychic Studies, London

He has been working professionally for many years and have demonstrated across the UK, mainland Europe, Australia, India, Egypt, New Zealand and the USA. Glenn has appeared on live, national TV in Australia several times, hosted his own radio show alongside his wife, Dagmar, also a psychic medium, and have been published in The Wellbeing Press.

Glenn aims to provide proof of the continuous existence of the human spirit and provide guidance for this life psychically and from our loved ones that have passed on.

He also uses his psychic skills to provide guidance on day to day issues e.g. relationships/work/career or Spirit Guide readings.

These sessions are coaching sessions, usually booked in blocks of 4 or 8 sessions, which identify obstacles, fears and other hindrances on why clients aren’t getting to where they want to be.

Ask Dr. Bunny. Starting another career in your 70’s? Hazel Palache, guest.

Hazel Palache

Hazel Palache

Hazel Palache, Hypnotherapist and Certified Results Coach, joins Dr. Bunny to share her story of how and why she started another business in her 70’s! Hazel is a true example of inspiration!

About Hazel Palache:
I’m a woman entrepreneur, 74 years old, going on 30, with a great sense of humor and, 25 years experience in the field of personal, spiritual and professional development.  I’m a certified master clinical hypnotherapist, NLP practitioner, stress management counselor and a certified coach.  I’m also a Mom, Sister and Friend.  I know your time is valuable and although I don’t want to give you a long winded bio,  it wouldn’t be fair to you if I didn’t share something about who I am:

I was born into a very traditional family in London, UK during world war two.  My Father was a compulsive gambler and rage-aholic and my Mother was a battered wife. I had a sister 3 years younger and as children we lived lives of fear and negativity and we certainly didn’t disobey our parents.   As girls we were expected to get married and procreate, so college wasn’t even an option for either of us.   At 19 I got married, had two children and my name became wife and mother!
My husband and I with our two children moved to the US in 1979.  At that time I was 37.  After living here for six years I was beginning to discover things about myself that had been lying dormant for all those years. One of the things I realized was that I didn’t say ‘Yes’ to myself only to other people and, the word No wasn’t part of my vocabulary.   At the age of 42 having been married for 25 years I filed for divorce.

I Discovered My Own Strength

It’s amazing what you can do when you are highly motivated.  That was the scariest thing I had ever done but it led me to finding strengths I didn’t know I had.

I discovered I was an entrepreneur at heart.    I was very fascinated with how the mind actually works.   With my earlier training in psychology,  I went to school at night and after a year of training, in 1990 I received my certification as a Master Clinical Hypnotherapist.    Whether they were in the entertainment industry or not, or they couldn’t maintain healthy relationships, were in pain because of their childhood, their marriage was having a problem or because they wanted to change a behavior, I had the honor of helping many dozens of people to overcome fears, doubts, negative mind chatter and much more.   My practice was successful, I loved my clients and every day was a blessing.

Life sometimes gets in the way!  In 1991 a driver jumped a red light and my car was totaled.  Although I didn’t know it at the time, that accident was going to impact my health in different ways for the rest of my life!   I was left with 3 herniated cervical discs that created terrible daily migraine headaches. In 1994 I was diagnosed with Fybromialgia.   I gradually realized that working in my practice was not going to be possible for my health, plus I wouldn’t be doing clients any favors if I couldn’t concentrate fully on their needs.  I wanted to stay in the personal development field but had to find another avenue.
In 1996 coaching was barely in existence but, after doing some research I knew that if I got certified as a coach I could work with clients by phone, which was an answer to my prayers.  This would also allow me to help women nationally and internationally.   In 1997 I received my coaching certification and while I was closing my private practice I started working with coaching clients on the phone.  I was re-inventing myself again by allowing an old door to close! I opened a new one and found the key to continuing to do what I loved.
