I finally managed to get an interview with Melissa Tiers. We dove into the subject of addictions.
More importantly, integrative addiction solutions. Which her talk at Hypnothoughts Live is about.
If you don’t know who Melissa Tiers is, you need to get up close and personal with her material.
She’s mos def a move and shaker in our profession.
If you want to work with anxiety and or addictions she should be at the forefront of your mind.
We’ll get to the podcast in just a second. First things first, let’s go over what we cover in this podcast:
Watch Melissa fly off the handle into one of her infamous F-Bomb rants over what I said about addicts in recovery – (I quickly changed my mind about this) [26:45]
Discover the religion she was most drawn to because of the ritual and occult aspect (HINT – its not Christianity) [2:53]
Aversion therapy doesn’t work for addictions, right? WRONG! Discover how aversion can therapy can work in *some* cases (you’ll get up close and personal with how “aversion therapy” made Antonio drop booze overnight) [16:10]
Uncover the art and science of stopping cravings dead in their tracks with these 7 virtually bullet-proof techniques [20:29]
When you should be the biggest cheerleader for 12 step programs (and when you should not) [31:46]
Watch in horror as Melissa busts out laughing when I tell her about my “allergic reaction” to alcohol [15:52]
Is this the single biggest mistake most 12 step programs have skipped over? (Most hypnotists also skip over this – except for Scott Sandland and Melissa) [33:11]
The amazing 3-step system Melissa uses to help addicts to discover true freedom from addictions [21:01]
The one thing she does to relax her students…that almost got her in hot water at Hypnothoughts Live two years ago (heads were spinning at the Alligator bar!) [8:58]
The mistake that 12 step programs usually make that kills people’s chance for recovery…and one simple thing you can do that will ensure their success (Imagine your clients screaming THIS IS SPARTA as they kick their addictions to the curb once and for all! [25:15]
