Presenter: Debbie Peacock
The April talk will concentrate on women and trauma … deep traumas such as rape, murder, kidnapping, attempted murder and child molestation. In cases of severe trauma, physical scars heal but emotional scars often remain and cause problems in many areas like family, personal and sexual relationships. Debbie will begin with a relaxation for the audience to reinforce the importance of relaxation therapy. She will also talk about the importance of the pre-talk and how really listening to the client can influence your choice of hypnosis techniques. She will discuss how anger, low self esteem, fear and sexual issues due to trauma from molestation and other violent experiences can be healed and the women can once again regain their personal power. One of Debbie’s clients will be participating in these demonstrations. We welcome her and thank her for her bravery. Questions are welcomed.
Deborah Peacock’s practice, “Debbie’s Place”, work mainly with women and woman's issues. She has focused her work for seventeen years teaching and counseling women and with women's groups. Debbie is a graduate of Arizona State University with a degree in Communications and trained in hypnosis about eight years ago.

President, Robert J. O’Connor called the meeting to order at 7 PM. Everyone introduced themselves and shared why they attended the meeting. Susan Poznanski informed us that one of our members, Rose McNicol, was ill. Robert also informed us that another member, Eileen Soland, could also use our support. We discussed the fact that we, as a group, should feel free to reach out to our members in need, and asked that we be informed of what we can do to support our members.
Greg Nielson, our vice president, was a speaker for the evening. His topic was The Care and Feeding of a Hypnosis Practice. Greg did a phenomenal power point presentation that walked us through beginning our practices, from getting our education through getting and bringing back our clients. He gave us a list of 10 things that decide the success of our practice:
Greg went on to discuss our marketing. One of the things he stressed the most was that we are NOT selling hypnosis, but the BENEFITS it provides. This is very important to remember when preparing our marketing materials.
This was a great presentation for the newbies and the seasoned practitioner. It gave us all some insight into newer marketing ideas and things we may have forgotten in doing business daily.
Greg also announced that at our recent Board meeting, we decided to produce some general brochures showing the benefits of hypnosis and directing the reader to the ASPH website for member referrals. These should be ready in the next couple of months. They will be a great way to get hypnosis in the forefront at health fairs, sporting events etc.
Following the presentation, members announced their upcoming events. The meeting was adjourned at 9 PM.
