Updated: Dec 13, 2022



If you are already having success - as a coach, hypnotist, therapist, manager of people, or simply as a human being - sometimes you feel like you shouldn’t need more feedback, even though deep down you know you can benefit. Other times people are embarrassed to ask for the help, or don’t know where to find it.


Discover how a very successful corporate coach improved her coaching client results, and transformed her own life, with hypnosis training.


On this episode, you will learn:

  • How to build a feeling of safety, curiosity and a sense of humour when receiving feedback.

  • Ways the hands-on learning and feedback of hypnosis training helps you truly “walk the talk” so you can be the coach your clients need you to be.

  • The advantage of incorporating hypnosis into coaching and training to take your clients’ success to another level.

Hello everybody I'm Robbie Spier Miller the host of the Hypnosis show podcast and today we're going to be exploring the the the theme of people who are already having a lot of success and how you can experience hypnosis training to help you and sometimes whether we're a coach or a hypnotist or a therapist or a manager or people or or simply a human being if we've had a certain level of success or life experience. Sometimes we feel like we shouldn't need more feedback or maybe it's embarrassing to ask for it even if we know that we could use it. Maybe we don't even know where to get it from. Today we're going to be learning how a very successful corporate coach with 25 years of experience in coaching and leadership. She grew in amazing ways with hypnosis training and the feedback and the accountability that that involves so welcome Shona.

Shona Welsh

Oh thank you very much for having me Robbie great to be here.

Robbie Spier Miller

And it's great to have you here so it would be great for you to start by sharing with people. What made you decide to do hypnosis training. What were the things that were kind of pushing you in that direction.

Shona Welsh

Yeah, yeah, great Question. So like you said I work with a lot of leaders in my coaching practice and you know 1 of the things that was really starting to bother me was I would give them information and tools and they would be excited about them. And they would try them out in the workplace and they would work and then they go back to doing everything they used to do before So I started I started thinking Oh My gosh. It's about way more than just giving information. There. There's something else kind of more deeply rooted here. That's going on and. Long story short just reflecting on and learning about how much our beliefs about who we are and how we show up are subconscious and influence what we do and that just led me to hypnosis and yeah here I am.

Robbie Spier Miller

All right great. So I know when you started with hypnosis training. There were some really big growth areas for you and so you've had all this success in your career and and sometimes.

Shona Welsh

Let's look.

Robbie Spier Miller

When we have that kind of success we can play magic tricks where we can kind of hide the areas we need to grow and so we can compensate for it or or distract from it and and nobody will ask any questions because we're kind of we're We're the ones who are creating the world.

Shona Welsh

Yes, yeah.

Robbie Spier Miller

Right? And and our coaching clients or our students are responding to that when you chose to be in this environment you you were joining this world and so my role as your trainer was to take away like to reveal the magic tracks right to take away the things that you were.

Shona Welsh

Um, if yeah.

Robbie Spier Miller

The crutches you were relying on so talk a little bit about what that experience was like for you and and how important it was in terms of your growth as a coach and a person.

Shona Welsh

Right? Yeah, so another great question I I think all of us now can look back on moments like that and laugh about them. But yeah, my my First. Ah, real challenge was actually in the first course in the basic hypnosis training and to make a long story short. Basically I have received kudos and you know rewards um, professionally and personally. For being that you know straight a student and following the rules and here's the process and just that linear academic learning that. Yeah, you can you know be quite successful with to a point so there I am. And the vasa hypnosis course and you know the instruction was okay, jump in with your your you know, fellow students hypnosis clients and that you know start performing hypnosis inductions and I'm like what wait wait a minute I don't know how to do. And there was something about that because my whole again I got rewarded for learning the process I I felt like a four-year-old. You know where you know I'm old enough to talk and explain things. But I don't have the tools to actually function and so I pretty much. Had a hissy fit. Um, maybe I mean certainly externally but more in my head like what do you mean? I'm not going to be told what to do and that was so out of my comfort zone in terms of how I learn and then apply information. So yeah, robbie had to come on and basically talk me down and then right after that 1 of the other students was asking some of the questions I had and and and robbie answered that student but not me and I and again another little hissy fed and I'm like wow how come.

Robbie Spier Miller

You're going. It's not fair. But yeah.

Shona Welsh

Totally not fair like exactly I'm into 4 year old Shona right? and I I actually said why does he get to ask questions and I don't and robbie in her wisdom right? It just really calmly said to me because he does not need to learn this you do and it this was. Um, this was a moment of truth for me because I knew like in my bones the truth of that and that's what that's what kept me coming back. Is you know I've lived in this world of learning my whole career and went wow. There's something. Transformative going on here and so that was that was the first thing. Yeah, very first course. Ah yeah.
