Although at first glance it may seem strange to talk about hypnotherapy for business and careers, success in your working life is often down to your state of mind. As Henry Ford once said, “whether you think you can, or you think you can’t - you’re right”.
Of course, it is true that the world of business is subject to forces that you may or may not be able to control. However, it is important to remember that this is true for every aspect of our lives. In any case, you are probably able to control more than you think you are. One thing you can always control is your reaction to events, and this is where self hypnosis and hypnotherapy can prove invaluable.
Our self hypnosis recordings will guide you into a relaxed state of awareness, in which your subconscious mind is more open to positive suggestions for enhancing your career. When changes are made at the subconscious level, you significantly increase your chances of bringing about the desired changes in your life.
Each self hypnosis CD / MP3 download deals with the challenges of specific career development areas. In general terms, however, hypnosis can help you to develop a more beneficial mindset, build resilience and confidence, and increase motivation to achieve your goals through vivid mental rehearsal. Hypnosis can also be a very effective way of eliminating obstacles to your success, such as excessive self-doubt or pessimism. It’s also important to note that self hypnosis is inherently relaxing and an ideal way of reducing and managing work-related stress.
Often the only thing that separates a successful person from an unsuccessful one is their state of mind. This is true whether you are working for an employer or running your own business. There are countless books, articles and training courses on this subject, but briefly, the most helpful business and career mindset will be one that is optimistic, positive, purposeful, risk-tolerant and resilient. Some people are naturally endowed with these qualities, but they are all skills which can be learned. Self hypnosis is an effective way of reprogramming the mind to develop the mental and emotional habits for career success.
Perhaps the most important quality for any salesperson to have is confidence – in themselves, in the product and in their ability to close the sale. Again, confidence is a skill that can be learned. Self hypnosis achieves this by embedding the confidence habit at a deep, subconscious level, so that it becomes an automatic reaction.
The techniques we use in our “Super Sales Success” and “Super Telesales Success” sessions can develop confidence and persuasive communication, linking them to sales situations through vivid mental rehearsal and positive suggestion. They can also be used to eliminate self-doubt and reduce unhelpful mental chatter.
Just like any skill, confidence as a salesperson gets better with practice. The more sales you make, the more confident you will be, which will in turn increase your ability to make even more sales!
This is a very common problem. Job interviews can certainly be stressful situations, especially if you really want the job or feel that there is a lot riding on a successful outcome. It is almost like performance anxiety – the more aware you are of your nerves, the more nervous you get. Sadly, although interviewers expect a degree of anxiety in candidates, excessive interview nerves can damage your chances of actually getting the job.
The good news is that this vicious circle can be broken. Our “Interview Confidence Booster” uses positive suggestion and hypnotic imagery to re-frame the interview as a situation in which you feel confident. Mental rehearsal of this type makes it far more likely that you will experience the same feelings in real life.
Productivity and effectiveness directly depend on your ability to tune out distractions. This can be easier said than done, as we are bombarded with ever-increasing amounts of information and opportunities to distract ourselves, via the internet and social media. Events outside of work can also have an impact. Problems at home, for example, have a way of intruding into your work life and affecting your ability to do your job.
Hypnotherapy can be a very effective way to regain your focus, since hypnosis itself is a highly focused state of attention. Therefore hypnotherapy can be used to enhance your natural ability to focus, which will automatically increase your productivity, effectiveness and sense of accomplishment in the workplace.

Our careers fulfill many of our most important needs as human beings, quite apart from the obvious financial and economic needs. However, it’s also true to say that our jobs can be the biggest source of stress in our lives.
Self hypnosis can help you to deal more effectively with work stress, by changing your subconscious expectations. This will help you to put work into its proper perspective, as well as increasing confidence in your ability to deal with the inevitable challenges of working life. We also have an audio program designed to give you the mental tools to prioritize and organize your life more effectively, helping you to achieve a better work-life balance.
It’s also important to note that self hypnosis is a deeply relaxing experience in itself. Simply listening to one of our self hypnosis CDs or MP3 downloads can be a powerful antidote to work related stress.
Just like every other area of personal development, achieving your business or career goals takes work and commitment. Hypnosis isn’t magic and there is no formula for instant success. However, our guided self hypnosis sessions can improve the quality of your experience, helping you to develop the mindset that will make success more likely.
