The Simpson Protocol is a tool that allows the client’s Conscious mind to relax and step aside so that their Superconscious (whatever that may be – but it seems to be – the most powerful mind of minds, that is also the most knowing) can work freely and completely -to the benefit of the Client’s optimum Good.
This technique represents a profound breakthrough in Hypnosis. It is already begun to revolutionize therapies to individualize them for each client by allowing each client’s Super-Conscious Mind to do the work. This is done by continuing to communicate with the Hypnotist while the client is in the deeper states, the client can do their own inner work with the direction of the Hypnotist to help them resolve whatever issue that is disturbing them.
“I use SP for whatever issue walks through my office door. Someone said SP is like the Swiss Army knife for Hypnosis – and I dont think so – the Swiss Army knife does lots of things – and all of them badly. Using SP I find every issue is worked at the highest level and produces the best outcome, regardless of the issue”
Importantly, this takes the Hypnotist’s conscious mind out of the equation and allows the client’s own mental assets to do the evaluation and the change work from within. This is a much purer means of bringing about an accurate and correct change for the specific issue in each client and is client centered which empowers the client.
The key to Simpson Protocol is that the Hypnotist is able to communicate with their Client while they are in very deep states of Hypnosis (Esdaile for example) – thus accessing the most powerful parts of their mind – that always work for the Client’s ultimate good.
The Clients do their own inner work with the direction of the Hypnotist to help them resolve whatever issue that is disturbing them.
There is no need for the Client to tell you the issue. Their mind knows the issue – and that is enough for the Simpson Protocl
This takes the Hypnotist’s conscious (and judgemental) mind out of the equation and allows the client’s own mental assets to do the evaluation and the change work from within. This is a much purer means of bringing about an accurate and correct change for the specific issue in each client and is client centered which empowers the client.
The Client’s own mind directs where and what will be worked on and does the work internally and privately when needed. This is a major benefit for many clients who don’t wish to expose their problems to anyone else due to privacy issues.
You can use SP for every and any issue that comes through the therapy door. You don’t need a thousand different ‘techniques’ and try to figure out what to use in each case. SP uses the Client’s Higher Mind and Superconscious – and they know what the client needs – let them fix the issue – they know all the tricks!!

Since I began to use the Simpson Protocol things have changed drastically around my practice. The many elite High School aged athletes I have been working with have seen great breakthroughs. Many of them will simply hold back during Regression to Cause if an issue is rooted in shame or guilt.
The SP gives the client privacy and true freedom to do that important change work. The kids who held back with RTC, absolutely flourished with the SP. One of them coined the term for it ” silent healing”.
All of the adults ( 35 years old and up ) that have I have worked with using the SP have experienced their own version of the ”magic” that Ines describes in her piece above. The results have been nothing short of breathtaking for them. I have been witness to some powerful changes during these sessions.
I love that this modality is less hypnotist and more client oriented. Since control is such a hot button issue in this profession, the SP wonderfully reinforces to the client how much they truly are in control of everything about the session and the changes achieved.
The Simpson Protocol, unlike many of the RTC modalities out there is flexible, reliable compliant with two huge issues for most people ; Control and Emotional Privacy. It has been a ”game changer” for me. Thanks for all your work Ines.

“I had gone over Dad’s stuff (Dave Elman) looking for items which would tie-in and support your talk… I sincerely meant what I said about Dad being glad of your research, and also of his comments in the book showing that AT THAT TIME the only practical uses were in surgery and child-birth. But later research we hope will develop it . . . apparently you and Ted are the later research to which he was referring.
It is a pity that Esdaile’s exact methods appear lost to history (or at least I know of no source for them). From 1840 to 1920, no intentional Esdaile States; the un-intentional usually put a stage hypnotist in jail and were much feared.
From 1920 to about 1955, knowledge of how to emerge, but no Esdaile-on-demand.
From 1955 to about 2005, Esdaile-on-Demand but no communication.

“Amazing course, amazing teacher.
I had a hypno student abreaction in class whilst demonstrating an induction on another student….
I moved straight into SP to protect her confidentiality in the group….
superconscious took over the issue(s) and sorted. She tells me she slept for 24 hours sweated IT out and feels amazing now.
And she had been on dozens of retreats and energy courses to heal previously…
PS I still don’t know what the issue is… nor need to.’
“When I saw Ines use her Simpson Protocol I knew this was what Hypnosis should always
“This is a training I highly endorse – in fact I look forward to attending it AGAIN in the future. She (Ines) has madthis an incredible interactive State ( Esdaile) where you are able to produce these changes with your clients first of all – at much deeper levels, and secondly with a much more efficient use of their time .”
“I have worked with Ines Simpson as the Simpson Protocol evolved and often co-present with her during live teaching sessions. She is brilliant, yet humble and unassuming. She loves to teach and impart what she knows to others. I have personally worked with her as a client and have had some amazing results using her protocol. I highly recommend her to anyone who really wants to make changes in their life.”

“I can now express my emotions to myself! WOW – and because I can now do this, I was able to clear an issue with EFT. I haven’t had an opportunity to express my emotions to someone else yet, but I have no doubt I’ll be able to do it – since I couldn’t do it for myself or someone else before. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”

“Ines, I just wanted to say how outstanding your one-day training session on working in the Esdaile state and beyond was last weekend. It really opened my eyes about an entirely new aspect of hypnosis/hypnotherapy and working with people in those deep states and the results you can get. Plus you were so kind and compassionate with those of us undergoing the experience as well as being trained in using it. The whole thing was really mind expanding – dare I say mind blowing – and I want to thank you again for the fabulous job you did in taking us to new depths – and heights. Looking forward to more training with you in the near future, Ines.”

Ines and I met in 2000 while attending Counselor training courses at our local community college. Over the ensuing years we have maintained an ongoing relationship and continued our education in parallel fields. She had already established herself as a hypnotherapist in our area when I took my own certification in 2003. Following that she was my mentor, and probably will always remain so for many of us fortunate enough to be associated with her. I feel extremely privileged to have been able to sit in while she worked with her clients. Just to be in her presence is a learning experience. On many occasion I have sat in on her classes and have a high degree of admiration for her ability to disseminate her amazing depth of knowledge to her students in an easily understood manner. The first day of class and every day throughout the duration of the course she has her students practicing what she has taught them in that lesson. Her demonstrations of the many techniques and explanations of the principles of hypnosis and their application enable her students to readily absorb the information. And learn they do from Ines! Anyone who has the good fortune to enter the hypnotic world with Ines as their teacher will leave very well trained, confident and know they have been trained by the best.
