The Power Of Conversational Hypnosis Review
The Power Of Conversational Hypnosis By Igor Ledochowsky - PDF Review
What Is The Power Of Conversational Hypnosis?
Does Igor Ledochowski's The Power Of Conversational Hypnosis work? Is it a quality covert hypnosis blueprint program by a knowledgeable author? How does it work? Here is a quick summary:
Who is the author? "The Power Of Conversational Hypnosis" is the creation of Igor Ledochowski, a leading figure in the world of hypnosis like Paul McKenna and Derren Brown. He became involved in hypnosis while attending Exeter University to become a lawyer and stumbled across the works of Milton Erickson, the forefather of modern hypnosis.
By applying the principles outlined by Erickson, he found that he could achieve twice as much results in half the time and became hooked in this discipline both for personal and social purposes. He became acquainted with Erickson's disciples too, learning all the ropes of hypnosis but also discovering ineffective or wrong methods.
Most importantly, not only did Igor Ledochowski took over Milton Erickson's relay, he actually strove to improve the effectiveness of his master's principles in order to upgrade Erickson's conversational hypnosis method from semi-covert to fully covert hypnosis, a much sought after skill and the nirvana of the hypnosis world. So Much so for the author.
Covert Conversational Hypnosis - What Are The Benefits?
Unlike Erickson, Ledochowski developed a step by step method that can be applied not just for therapeutical reasons where the patient is aware of the hypnotist exerting his power from the start, but more intriguingly in all social situations if and when required, without people realizing they are actually being hypnotized, thus influencing and persuading them in every day situations.
After many years of studies and trial and error, he found the most effective stealthy ways to sneak into people's mind without them detecting anything wrong as the conversation unravels. It could actually be called a persuasiveness and assertiveness method rather than simply an hypnosis "magical hat trick" method as conjured up in the typical cartoonesque image of the "wizard hypnotist" coercing his hapless victims with his magnetic stare into some dangerous deeds for his own gain, like robbing a bank.
Indeed, the author mentions the famous case of an Italian hypnotist robber who struck several times without arm to anyone except for the stolen money, just getting his prize by instantly persuading the cashier to hand it over to him. However, we found that Ledochowski's conversational hypnosis method was not developed with unethical, illegal or immoral intentions in mind, but simply to improve one's life in all daily circumstances with no harm to anyone by means of assertion and persuasiveness, even improving relations between two opposing or hostile parties.
The conversational hypnosis blueprint by Ledochowski is more about influencing people rather then manipulating them. It's about steering people's will to your side and agreeably so, rather than dominating them. It tells you all the nuances required to negotiate and compel people to do something while commanding respect and admiration as an authority person, rather than coercing, tricking or intimidating.
In short, it is about being authoritative, not authoritarian, and commanding attention and respect in all situations and circumstances. We think this program could also be used by shy or introvert people to learn how to stand their ground to their own advantage or to prevent others taking advantage of them without creating conflict or contrasts, but actually persuading people onto your side.
We liked this assertiveness core element of the method and the meticulous studying, observation and trial and error spent by the author to hone and refine all the subtle skills required to become a perfect persuader, aka an effective conversational hypnotist.
We think the range of such skills encompasses a wider area than mere day to day solutions for one's own advantage in simple social situations, because they could also be used as diplomatic tools wherever conflict or danger is not too far off sight. Below we compiled a list of just few situations that we found these skills come in handy.

The Power Of Conversational Hypnosis – Where Can It Be Applied?
How Persuasiveness And Authority Effect Your Life
Here are few typical situations where covert hypnosis can be useful
These are just few of the circumstances that can benefit from mastering this conversational hypnosis blueprint. We found the techniques described in the program to be very subtle and intriguing and that the access doors to people's minds were there all the time but made invisible by the traditional, superficial way in which we interact, missing key elements of body language, facial expression and attention span.
For example, one such technique is the " matching and mirroring", adjusting your speech and body language to that of the person you try to persuade, but without going overboard. It needs to be subtle so the person feels comfortable and accommodating, not antagonistic, for best results. Exaggerating mimic can have the opposite effect, making the person think you are just being led and he/she is the dominant one.
Then there are insights to the working of your own mind to be aware of, like the " law of reverse effect". This consists of letting you conscious effort have the better hand on the flow of your subconscious or imaginative state, thwarting results and outcomes.
This means being excessively preoccupied with performing a task can interfere with your natural ability to perform it effectively without any effort. This is the typical case of the insomniac who never gets to sleep the harder he tries, whereas if he let the sleep just fall over him naturally and subconsciously, he would be fast asleep in no time at all.
The are many laws and techniques described in the blueprint, but one that stands out is the " Hypnotic Rapport". We found this to be a keystone and the foundation of just about any liaison, let alone conversational hypnosis.
As the name implies, it consists of the ability of engaging the person in front of you, creating a " connection" as fast and effectively as possible. The hypnotic rapport goes hand in hand with "matching and mirroring" , the former being the foundation, the latter its practical application.
We found The Power Of Conversational Hypnosis is an NLP or Neuro Linguistic Programming method of high quality that leaves nothing to chance. The theory foundation, the knowledge and practical blueprint for learners are well designed, structured and explained.
It uses a scaled down and simplified version of the Milton Model to quickly learn the ropes and skills of conversational hypnosis without wasting time. Some Information found in the program can also be found here and there online, but it is fragmented and incomplete and without real-life step by step action plan.
What Makes The Power Of Conversational Hypnosis Different from Other Programs?
Ledochowski's program is unique in that it is not just extensive and thorough, but also practical and hands on. It comes in download digital formats as follows:
The teaching is structured into 12 different sections, below a brief summary:
All the above sections are sub-divided into a vast array of sub topics, the list of which would be too long to mention in this review.
The Good And The Bad Of Ledochowski's Conversational Hypnosis
This educational product gave us an overall very good impression right from the start, with tons of information, a good layout and format and knowledge taken over from Milton Erickson and further honed and refined, plus an impressive list of testimonials.
This impression was later confirmed by the effectiveness of the techniques involved in everyday situations. They do not come easy, as they require dedication and perseverance, but we found them to work in many typical situations, improving assertiveness and persuasiveness on others.
We found some techniques like "matching and mirroring" easier than others to get hold of and implement, giving quickly an advantage in typical circumstances where liaising or bargaining are required.
Other skills like hypnotic story telling to get one' attention, piercing through their mind to steer them in your direction, are a bit more difficult to learn, especially if you are not a natural speaker, or are shy or introvert.
However, even these "advanced skills" are still worth a try, improving overall assertiveness and possible lagging aspects of your personality like lack of social confidence and charisma, even if you cannot achieve fully covert hypnosis quite yet. Just keep practicing.
Below is a list of what we likes and disliked of this program.

What We Did Not Like:
The Bottom Line – The Power Of Conversational Hypnosis is a complete and effective blueprint designed to achieve the holy grail of hypnosis, that is fully covert, conversational hypnosis, to be used in all daily situations and circumstances in order to steer other people's minds and will to your side.
It does so with a clear step by step blueprint teaching you all the techniques to become not just proficient in covert hypnosis, but also more confident, persuasive, assertive and charismatic in all possible situations. Therefore, we think it is a program suitable not just for pure covert, conversational hypnosis, but also for anyone who wants to improve their social skills and become more successful in all social liaisons.
