Let’s suppose there is someone in your life you care about who seriously NEEDS help. They are engaging in a behavior you want them to stop. How do you talk to them so they are more likely to ask for help?
Don’t Do This…
Nagging, lecturing, critisizing. It may feel good. It may feel like the only thing you can do for the people you care about. After all, you are watching them engage in behaviors that at best, are wasteful, and at worse, self-destructive. The problem nagging, lecturing and critsizing is that it creates an opposition for them to push against. No one likes to be told what they are doing is wrong even if they conscious know it’s wrong. Guilt is not always the best way to encourage change.
Do This Instead…
Show support by letting them know, first, you are on their side. Ask them about their hopes and dreams.
Ask them to talk about what is important to them.
Ask them if you can make the first move for them and make the call.
How About Seeing a Hypnotist?
Over the course of two decades as a hypnotist. Yes, I’ve often gotten a call from a family member asking “Can you hypnotize my relative so they would (fill in the blank)?” The standard response is to explain how hypnosis works and that their relative would have to want to work with me. If the person is present I ask to talk to them.
Because it’s important they want to work with me I can’t pressure them but I’ll answer any questions they have about the process.
