Testimonial for Efficacy of Hypnotic Stories:
Here’s what Professional Hypnotist Stephanie Conkle had to say about Trunk to Tale:
“I had an older gentleman in his 80s come to see me. He didn’t actually want hypnosis, but he just wanted to talk and share his stories with me. Anyway, he told me of a story of him being India with elephants. (And the lightbulb went off in my head.) I loaned him my copy of Trunk to Tale to take home to listen to. He promptly returned my copy back to me with a note of appreciation and told me it had helped him. I really didn’t know to what extent at that point.
Fast forward to a year later and his son makes an appointment with me. The first thing his son said was, “I’m seeing you today because you saw my father last year and he has changed for the better. He is no longer angry and is a delight to be around. You don’t understand how difficult he has always been. Angry. Stubborn. Walked around with a chip on his shoulder. But now he is pleasant to be around. And if you can do that to him, then I know you can help me with my problem.”
I didn’t tell his son that I did absolutely zero hypnotherapy with him other than giving him James’ Hypnotic Stories of Wisdom. (Because I needed him to believe in me so I could help him.) But I do want to give credit where credit is due.”
