I’m like wow!
Never thought we can last so long together~
Like seriously, who would have thought?!
Do you want to make a guess how long has it been already?
I can wait XD
Ok la that was a lame and random poke at fun XD
Isn’t that amazing?!
It’s been 7 years since we first started on this journey
And boy was it ever a ride!
It’s been 7 years since I started this practice as a professional hypnotist
Since I registered my trade and decided to focus on helping people effectively
Damn I still can’t believe it you know?
How time flies…
When I started I didn’t know what to expect
I mean, let’s face it
Hypnotherapy isn’t well known then
Public perception wasn’t positive about it
Naturally there was a lack of support all around
It’s just that I saw the connection
Of how God saved my life and led me to here
To be equipped with the skills and knowledge to heal myself from my past traumas and issues
And to realize the potential that I had in being able to help people heal from their own issues
Heck if anyone were to ask me how or why I became a hypnotist
I could probably talk for hours on end!
Because I saw how everything was connected together 😀
Just in case you thought “my baby” was my lover, at the time of this writing, I’m single
My baby is my business 😀
Anyway, honestly, never would I have thought that I will be working with some of the people I worked with
Or be conducting talks, workshops and mini lectures at some of the places I did it in
Encountering all sorts of people from all walks of life, with all sorts of unique issues and backgrounds
Learning through and with my clients, about the human mind and condition
It’s so amazing~
Although I’m in awe, I know that there is still a possibility that there is more out there
More to discover, learn and grow
Anyway, here are some random stats that I decided to keep track of over the years
I’ve hypnotized 782 unique people
Of which, a total of 3686 techniques were done
Ahem so as not to confuse anyone, I could have done 10 techniques on 1 person due to the constructs of the problem and the requirement for it, while maybe 3 techniques on another person
They can be the same techniques too, the main idea for tracking this was how much I was practicing my hypnosis per technique
The fastest time for a complete session of hypnosis was about 10 minutes
While the longest time for a complete session of hypnosis was about 2 hours
There were 2 such ladies who did such a long time because they had to cry for 30 minutes straight and I waited until they were ready to continue
However, one of the fastest? shortest? I don’t know how to describe this… quickest? in resolving an issue may belong to the lady who resolve 16 issues in 55 minutes or about 3.44 minutes per issue
For this, I don’t have a proper tracker or calculation, I just pick one of the most number of issues resolved in the quickest time because…
Is the most number of issues resolved 24 or 16?
The most number of issues resolved was 24 issues, in a session that took 1 hour and 40 minutes (which in case you were wondering, is about 4.2 minutes per issue)
To be fair, this same lady who resolved 24 issues also forgave 17 people in her life, and I count each person as a separate issue cause of the interpersonal arguments, communication etc
Meaning if we don’t count the people, she resolved 7 issues plus forgave 17 people, which is still the most number of people forgiven in a session of hypnosis
And in which case, the most number of issues resolved (without forgiveness) will be the lady previously mentioned, resolving 16 issues in 55 minutes
There was another guy who resolved 21 issues in 1 hour and 10 minutes but he forgave 10 people
Most fastest to heal… actually cannot define cause quite a few people heal during the hypnosis itself as we resolving their issues on the spot
Then it’s a matter of them proving to themselves that they are healed as they live their daily life
For example, some clients with pain find their pain gone within the session itself, or when it’s a physical skin condition, a couple of them open their eyes to new healed skin
The ones resolving anxiety or fear will be unable to find their anxiety or fear, just that, some may want to experience for themselves in specific situations first to confirm for themselves
Some clients experience amazing changes
Some who suffered from depression previously in particular might experience some astounding changes
One such client cried tears of joy upon opening her eyes after the hypnosis and realizing that her depression is truly gone…
This is because in some cases, depression can cause one to see the world in shades of grey or dull color
So when she opened her eyes, she realized her room was full of colors which she never noticed before, hence she was overwhelmed with feelings of freedom and happiness
She even updated me about an hour later that even the chocolate she ate was more flavorful!
The longest I spend with a client’s family for a chat alone was 6.5 hours, while the longest I spend with a single client for a chat was 4 hours
On the other hand, the longest time with a client at a stretch, which includes a chat plus hypnosis, was 8 hours
The most number of chats I had with a client was for 3 months straight weekly on Tuesday, which will be 12 chats
For her, this is because she wasn’t ready to resolve her issues however she felt the chats were useful in understanding herself and helping her slowly and progressively open her mind to the idea of healing
The most number of hypnosis done by a single client is a total of 7 hypnosis sessions
I mentioned in another article that when the issues are complex or when the client is unable to forgive someone, the number of sessions may exceed 1
Hers was a combination of complexity and unable to forgive, so each session we target a different issue and while most of her issues she saw progress (her friends too), there were a couple that needed 2 sessions instead
On that note, there may be a client who may exceed that
A lady, whose issue has possibly the highest complexity, has done 5 sessions of hypnosis and may still need more
Her issue is what I call a fragmented mind, which is highly complex in terms of piecing her mind back together part by part… thankfully there is a lot of change and progress since the first time we did the hypnosis 😀
In the beginning she is sitting there as if she isn’t with us, after the sessions thus far, she is able to initiate conversations with me and other people!
The youngest client I hypnotized was aged 7, while the oldest client was aged 83
The current total number of countries where my clients have come from is 19 countries
Which included nearby countries like Malaysia, Brunei and Indonesia, to further countries like Scotland, Japan, USA
Most number of clients I ever had in a day was 6
Least will be 0 or 1 hahahahahaha
Most number of family members that came with the client was 7
Most busy months seems to be June and December
Least busy months are January and February
Although for this, I am recalling mainly pre-Covid because when Covid hit, everything changed
June and December might be able it’s the holidays so children got time to see me, and parents have to take leave for December
January and February is because after New Year, most Chinese families are preparing for Chinese New Year and doing spring cleaning
I must say though, another least busy month will be the month when I am on reservist XDDD
Or at least, 2 weeks busy 2 weeks no clients cause I’m in camp
What about some unusual cases?
I want to share a most weird or interesting case but I got quite a few so that will be an article on its own (or two)
Although to be fair, I’m counting them based on what I remember so perhaps some figures is +1 -1 haha
Anyway, I think that’s enough of some random stats about my practice thus far
