Episode 10 - Ines Simpson on The Concept of Modern Hypnosis and Simpson Protocol
June 9, 2021 • 31 MIN
Hi, my name is Ines Simpson and here’s a little Obligatory Bio about me. Prior to Hypnosis, I worked in many fields from the hospitality industry to commercial fishing on Canada’s west coast. In my 40’s, I started to reevaluate my life and to search for something that would fulfil me and hopefully give my life more meaning. In the late 90s my mother took a hypnotherapy course (by mistake – she thought it was Psychic event – and I guess in a way it was! ) She told me about it and a light bulb went on! And I reconnected to Hypnosis. From then on I was committed. It seemed to be my thing. Something I could truly commit to. I avidly (fanatically) pursued a career in hypnosis and became a member of the National Guild of Hypnotists in 2000. By 2005, I was admitted as a faculty member by the National Guild and continues to this day to teach as well as study to add to my knowledge of hypnosis. A field that is never static never finished – there is always more to learn. I am a Board-Certified hypnotist with the National Guild of Hypnotists, the largest hypnosis body in the world. I was, in fact, the very first certified instructor for the NGH in western Canada. I have my own business Advanced Hypnosis and Training Institute in British Columbia. Advanced Hypnosis offers individual services as well as Mentoring to Full Hypnosis Certification and Simpson Protocol training for hypnotists. I was inducted in 2012 to the NGH’s Order of Braid in recognition of service to professional hypnotism. Each hypnotist inducted to the Order of Braid have enriched the lives of others and have made a significant contribution to the hypnosis profession. Also in 2012, I received the Hallmark Award- Top Rated Instructor by Student Evaluation Award from the NGH. And in 2014 became the first instructor of Jerry Kein’s Omni Hypnosis program in Canada. (Jerry Kein was my Mentor and Hero as a Hypnotist- if you haven’t heard of him – look him up – really!) I also developed and created the Simpson Protocol, a method of Hypnosis that allows the Hypnotists to communicate with a Client even when in deep states of Hypnosis – such as Esdaile and even Sichort. For the first time, the hypnotist can converse with the client’s deepest mind to learn what the true issues are and to direct it to do what is needed to achieve the best results possible.
