Testimonials

“William helped me overcome an unpleasant experience with someone I knew.

“I could be doing something positive like working out, and the old experience would often resurface into my thoughts and get under my skin. It was very frustrating because that disturbing event was something out of my control to resolve with that person.

“When I saw William, it was like he was able to get my mind to ‘neutralize’ this event, not necessarily erase it, but take the anger and the emotional sting out, so that the memory could no longer disturb me so profoundly as it has been doing. In hypnosis, the whole bad, negative feelings I had were deflated. And with it went my anger. I still don’t like what happened and know I was wronged–but that truth no longer occupies me in the horrible way it did–and our hypnosis work gave me my peace back.

“Doing hypnosis with William felt safe and comfortable. I liked how he guided me. I felt kind of like I was in two worlds. I had a foot in this world and a foot in the hypnosis world.

“It’s been several months since our work, and I am still emotionally free of the bad feelings the thought of this event used to stir up.”

“Hypnosis and Allergies”

Date: Tuesday, August 14, 2012
Time: 6:30 PM-7:30 PM
Location:
Telephone class
Cost: Free

In 2010, the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) found that 7.6% of American adults suffered from hay fever, just one of many types of allergies. We spend millions on allergy medications that simply mask the symptoms. It’s time to offer a more effective alternative to drugs.

An allergy is an overreaction of the immune system. For example, let’s say “Jane” is allergic to pollen. She sneezes and has itchy eyes, because her immune system is defending her against the “invader.” Drugs decrease her symptoms but don’t address the true cause: a faulty respone from the immune system. Hypnosis can help adjust the immune system’s response.

“Weight Loss Workshop” (two dates available)
Date:
Choose either July 14 (Saturday) or July 26 (Thursday), 2012
Time: July 14 is from 10:00 AM-1:00 PM,
July 26 is from 6:00 PM-9:00 PM (please choose one date)
Location: Downtown San Francisco
Cost: $80

Why do people battle with their weight? It’s not a matter of will power and motivation; many clients I’ve helped had tremendous will power and motivation. The real issue is a deep conflict between their conscious and subconscious mind. The conscious mind is the logical adult, and the subconscious is the emotional child. If you want to lose weight permanently, it’s crucial to resolve the inner conflict.

Imagine you have a subconscious part that wants to gain weight. Let’s call it “Gainer.” If you eat less, she’ll sabotage you. If you exercise, she’ll sabotage you. She’ll sabotage you no matter what you do! Gainer is not a bad kid. She just needs some guidance and help.

In this three-hour workshop, you’ll learn how to speak to Gainer, so that you can find out what she wants. You’ll learn self-hypnosis to create a more peaceful relationship with Gainer. As Gainer becomes your friend, the pounds will melt away.

“Hypnosis to Fall Asleep Faster”
Date: Thursday, July 12, 2012
Time: 7:30 PM-8:30 PM
Location: Telephone class
Cost: Free

Insomnia has multiple causes, and this tele-class focuses on the busy mind (i.e., internal radio). One common cause of insomnia is that people think too much, which is like having a mental radio pumping out lots of static.

Wouldn’t it be great if we could reduce the static in the mental radio? Well, using hypnosis, we can do that. Once the radio is quiet, we can fall asleep more quickly, stay asleep more deeply, and wake up more energized.

Thousands of scientific studies have been done on hypnotherapy, and it’s been proven to be a safe and effective tool for a wide range of issues. Insomina is just one of many issues helped by hypnosis.

“Laughing Session with William Song!”
Date: February 21, 2012
Time: 7:00 PM-9:00 PM
Location: Lightwork Seminars Classroom, 421 Post St., 14th Floor, San Francisco, CA 94102
Cost: $5 donation to the facility

Warning!

This meeting may scramble your brains (but in a good way). It’s not for the faint of heart or easily offended. (It’s geared toward professional hypnotherapists, though the general public is also welcome.)

Have you ever wondered why the co-founder of NLP, Richard Bandler, was so effective with clients? One reason: he used a strange technique. Bandler learned it from Frank Farrelly, creator of Provocative Therapy. Nick Kemp added to Farrelly’s work and developed Provocative Change Works. I’ve nicknamed my version a “laughing session,” because clients tend to laugh, even if nothing funny was said.

Here’s a taste of you doing a laughing session with a new client… Jane, a smoker.

Hypnotherapist (H): What’s the problem?
Jane (J): [Goes into great detail about smoking.] Blah, blah, blah.

H: “(Yawn) Sorry, I was daydreaming because I got bored.”
J: What!? What kind of hypnotherapist are you!?

H: I’m a Scorprio, but does that matter? Do you believe in astrology, because I do, though only the real stuff, not newspaper horoscopes which aren’t real, which reminds me, there was an article in the Wall Street Journal last week about apples, oranges, and astrology. Did you hear it?

J: [In a confused voice] No. Uh, I don’t read that paper.
H: It’s a great paper, it even has an extensive comics section that makes me laugh every day. They’ve added a large section devoted to model trains, which I skim through but don’t care for since I don’t collect model trains, oh, hold on, I had another thought, darn, gone so fast, oh well, what were we talking about? Oh smoking I’ve got mixed feelings about quitting smoking, because I think it’s overrated, because you only live once, why not do what you want? Have you considered that smoking could be better than the stress of quitting? I hear it’s hard to quit.

J: But I want to quit smoking! You’re supposed to help me quit, right?

You chain surprise after surprise, deepening the hypnosis, and listen as she laughs while letting go of old patterns. At session end, she has no idea what you did, but she’s made major progress. Though it doesn’t come through in the language, this session is done with great care and respect for the client, and they sense it.
