Hypnosis was used with a client facing a difficult vocational decision. The client was a young woman who had made a series of vocational decisions in the past without fully understanding her own interests and needs. A variety of hypnotic techniques were used, including time projection, going to a special place, and listening to an older and wiser version of herself. Hypnosis was effective in developing self-confidence and relaxation, as well as enhancing self-awareness, enabling the client to make an appropriate vocational decision. Hypnosis is not often reported in the vocational counselling literature, but this case study demonstrates its efficacy.
