Post 10: Experiments on Myself with Self Hypnosis

I decided to allow the first Anecdote to sink in, and to regale you with the self hypnosis experiments I carried out on myself. The first one, of course, was the Smoking Cessation recording. You will recall that I hypnotised the current editor of the U.T.,S. student newspaper Newswit, and because the tape fouled up

Post 9: A Night to Remember (cont. v)

Recalling the "Wind in the Willows" and "The Odyssey" I was fascinated by the Stoats and Weasels who invaded Toad Hall in Toad's absence, and the 108 Suitors who pursued Penelope until the return of Odysseus after 20 years absence (10 of them fighting the Trojan Wars and the 10 years it took to make

Post 8. A Night to Remember (cont. iv)

Yes indeed, what words came out that had such a magical effect? Something apt from "The Merchant of Venice"? I can't quite see them being inspired by Shylock's speech pinning Antonio down to donating a pound of his flesh. I still remember quite a bit of the Rubaiyat: "Come, fill the Cup, and in the

Post 7. A Night to Remember (cont. iii)

They were very respectful and apologetic, returning my handbag, which they had purloined. They gave me the impression that Robbie had assured them I would be a willing participant in their plans.

They turned right off the Pacific Highway and I later guessed they went into bushland somewhere near Brooklyn. They parked the car in a clearing in the middle of the bush, and continued with their salacious discourse. I was in between two men on one side and one on the other side in the back

A Night to Remember or Scheherazade Revisited

When I was 17 years of age I worked at The Land Newspaper as the secretary to the Managing Editor. I had not been there very long when the Queen Bee, the Editor of the Children's Page, retired and went to live in Tasmania. I was given the job of answering the Buzzers letters, finding

Post 4. What Happened Next

I continued working at U.T.,S for 26 years, then worked for an employee assistance program for 16 years and began a parallel private practice in 2005, all the while using hypnosis as my main psychological technique. For your sake I should mentioned E.M.D.R., the second string to my bow. If you have suffered from trauma

Post 3 How It Began

I met Richard Walsh at a party and he said "Pam, if you ever write a book let me have a look at it." At that time he was the Managing Editor of Angus and Robertson, book publishers. Later I wondered if he said that to everyone. When I'd accumulated a sizeable amount of scripts

Testing

I divided 120 subjects into 60 making their own recordings and 60 listening to my recording. I had another variable called locus of control: whether a person believed they were in control of their own lives and destinies and liked it that way or not, and people who believed their lives were in the control

Introduction

Hello, I’m Pam Young.  That’s how I begin my recordings.  All this began when I enrolled in a Ph.D. in obesity at Uni. of New South Wales.   At the time I was staff and student counsellor at University of Technology, Sydney.  One day the editor of the student newspaper “Newswit” asked for hypnosis to help
