Kevin Hogan Advanced Covert Hypnosis Course Review

You probably already know about Kevin Hogan, Psy.D. If you've never heard about him, don't worry -- if you're interested in covert hypnosis and persuasion in general, you will soon enough (a good start is to read this post!)...

Today I'm going to review Kevin Hogan's "Advanced covert hypnosis course" that I've been involved with for a little more than a year now...

It's an interesting story of how I first decided to buy the course...

You see, in the last five years I've been exposed to a lot of material on NLP, covert hypnosis, seduction and other persuasion tactics, stage hypnosis and hypnotherapy. I've even been to an excellent Essential Skills seminar in London and I really thought I knew it all. Who could have blamed me...

One day, more than two years ago, I stumbled about Kevin Hogan's web site because I was interested in body language. I purchased an audio course on the subject. After the purchase I came back to the site and searched a bit. I found a product titled "Covert Hypnosis -- an advanced course in subtle unconscious influence"...

"Hmmmm", I thought. Looks very interesting, "But I really know it all already". Plus I just purchased the body language course and didn't want to spend more money that day.

I did read the web site thoroughly though and was slightly shocked at the amount of information Kevin was offering in a single course. I must admit that a few concepts were fairly new to me at the time. But I just thought: "Here's another great attempt to sell me something I already know", and I was getting a bit tired of all the new stuff that came out almost daily. Every site was offering something "nobody else is revealing" and when I bought such courses, I just ended up with the same old info everybody else was revealing...

So, for almost a year I completely forgot about it.

Then one day I was listening to an interview on "sales letters writing" with Dr. Joe Vitale -- the first "hypnotic writer", a marketing genius and a legend. He was talking about persuading a person with story and gave an example of such a persuasive story. I was literally blown away. As he was explaining the persuasive elements in that story and I couldn't believe it -- it was like --he was repeating back to me MY EXACT MENTAL PROCESSES I HAD when listening to the story!

I got a bit spooked...

This was some heavy stuff. This was advanced... very advanced. Why haven't I heard about it sooner? I bought so many courses, so many ebooks... and then Joe said: "Well, I've learned all of this from my friend and mentor, Kevin Hogan. He was the guy that certified me in hypnotherapy. He explains all of this in his course 'Covert Hypnosis' ". "Do yourself a favor", he said, "And go to his web site now and buy the course!".

I was hypnotized right there and then -- I rushed to the web site and purchased the course immediately. I mean, if Joe Vitale speaks of it so highly, then it really must contain some great information...

Fast forward two weeks...

It took almost two weeks for the course to arrive (I live in Europe). It was hard to wait as I was so curious what methods, strategies and techniques Kevin teaches. Finally I received the course and started to listen to it. I also printed out the 149 page manual that comes with it so that I could have it handy and so that I could highlight important concepts etc. Let me tell you, 149 pages makes for quite a thick manual...

Anyway, after listening to the course several times, here's my...

Review Of The Advanced Covert Hypnosis Course by Kevin Hogan

Expert such as he is, Kevin Hogan in the beginning tells a very powerful story of his life. It is designed so that a listener gets a sense of immediate connection with him and is constantly on the edge to know more. Inside the story are woven secret messages intended only for the subconscious to interpret and to create an exact impression about Kevin's personality inside the listener's mind. He also has many more messages inside. Such messages that if told directly they probably wouldn't have such an impact as they have when told in such a way.

Based on the story, a listener comes to "his or her own conclusions" which in reality were literally very skillfully forced inside his or her mind! This is a very powerful style of communication and can be applied to literally millions of everyday situations...

Once he finishes the story, he begins to explain exactly what messages were woven inside and why and how he used them. He then gives the exact formula for creating a powerful story that influences on the spot...

Here's what you'll learn in just the first CD:

  • What exactly is covert hypnosis -- this is where many people go wrong!
  • How to weave covert messages into and through a story
  • How to create a powerful story that makes a listener literally crave for more and gets the intended messages through to him or her
  • How, where and why to use emotions in story for maximal persuasion impact
  • What was one of Kevin Hogan's most powerful "AHA moments" after he attended a seminar many years ago and how it will literally change the way you think
  • What is a powerful "success mentality" all about, PLUS you'll get it automatically after listening to the story :-)
  • What exactly is going on in the persuasive story Kevin tells at the beginning of the CD -- where all the secret messages are hidden, how YOUR brain automatically interprets them and how your subconscious mind creates a positive impression of Kevin in a way that you then trust, respect and feel completely connected with him
  • How to easily implement what you've learned so that you can instantly start creating such powerful stories that literally persuade people instantly...

Then on the next two CD's Kevin goes in detail on inner desires that govern every human and on ways how to ignite them for maximal persuasion. These were very powerful for me. I mean, just imagine knowing every core desire and drive people have and an amazingly simple way to know which ones a certain person you talk to holds most dearly to and exactly what to say and do to "push that button" and make him or her instantly want what you offer!

This is what you'll learn in CDs 2 and 3:

  • What's the core of covert hypnosis
  • What are the four astonishing facts about genes that you can utilize immediately to make a persuasion impact never seen before
  • Which are the core drives everybody has inside them (yes, even YOU -- and I bet you're not aware of most of them -- I wasn't)
  • What's the master key to sales success
  • Exactly how to ignite each one of the inner desires -- what they are, how to know which one to pick, where your prospect stands on a certain desire and how to present your message in a way that the end result complies with it
  • and much more...

In volume four, Kevin talks about the covert model for change. Here you'll learn the most complete and effective model to create a change in behaviour in your prospect. The uniqueness of this model is in creating a permanent change -- not like most models that only create a change for a short time. As I got it, this is meant more like application of covert hypnosis in therapy. Once you know this model and prepare yourself, you'll be able to help all your family, friends, clients and acquaintances to get rid of their unwanted behaviour and to "install" a healthier, more prosperous, better behaviour.

This model, although explained in an easy-to-follow, step-by-step manner, needs some work and preparation to be fully put into effect. But when mastered and used, it will make you one of the most respected and talked about (in a positive way) person in your neighbourhood and well beyond that. Get people to easily quit smoking, loose weight, stop procrastination, develop great learning habits, have better relationships, loose fear of rejection, anything you can think of. This system is really amazing! It brings together everything you've learned in the course.

In the last four CDs you'll learn the ultimate, in-depth knowledge on how to influence the mind...

...In volumes 5-8 you'll discover:

  • How to help yourself and others to get what you want
  • What really motivates people
  • How to create an effective change in persons thoughts and behaviours
  • How powerful the mind really is
  • What is the first step to change
  • What are the six ingredients necessary to rewire the brain (this is mouthwatering knowledge!)
  • How to quickly and covertly gather the right information from a person so that you can then easily use that knowledge to instantly put them into a trance and convince them of anything
  • What are the "mind access points" (hint: after you know this you'll literally be able to do some serious brain-hacking)
  • What are the core ways people are programmed -- after you learn this, y0u'll be able to communicate with them in a way that you'll seem like the you're their soul mate
  • What is an impact of one single word that will gain compliance from almost everybody!
  • Which "buttons" should you push in order to get complete compliance from people
  • What are the secrets of unconscious communication -- how our subconscious communicates with us and how you can use this to covertly persuade people
  • How to determine values in your prospect so that you know exactly how to present your proposition -- very easy when you know how :-)
  • and much much more...

I think that some things ought to remain a mystery until you buy the course :-)

In my honest opinion, Kevin Hogan's advanced covert hypnosis home study course is by far the most complete course in subtle unconscious communication out there. Nothing he teaches is speculation -- everything is based on scientifically obtained results by him and many of his colleague psychologists and psychiatrists.

This is state of the art information presented in an interesting, easy-to-understand and fun way. After you're done with the course you'll easily be able to get people, as well as yourself, to do exactly what you want. I know that the price might seem high at first, but when you really take into account everything you'll learn plus the fact that you'll very easily detect covert hypnosis being used on you (advertising!), you'll realize that you'll make the money back several times in the first three months of owning the course and applying what you learn.

I just found your website. What an excellent site. You've really done a great service to people in the NLP and hypnosis world by posting all of this information. Equally as important, I appreciate the citations you've given for the original work. Everyone reading will appreciate that.

Would you like a neat easy to use technique?

When people say, "no" and have a negative reaction to you or your product/service, take them out into the future and show them not only the positive results of doing business with you but mention whatever their fear is as well.

So, "You're right, you may buy Covert Hypnosis and never listen to it. And that would be irritating.

But you could also buy Covert Hypnosis and not just listen to it but learn the most powerful techniques of unconscious communication every put together in one program. The best part is there is no replication from NLP or traditional hypnosis. This material is all new.

So yes, you could end up irritated or you could end up in control of every situation you come upon."

Make sense?

Take care Blaz and keep up the good work

Thank you Kevin.

It's a great pleasure to have you post here. The things you wrote about my site still resonates within my mind and fills me with joy. Thank you again.

Great technique. Human mind is sort of funny, isn't it. Once you know some of the laws that govern it, it becomes very predictable.

Again, great job on your courses! I enjoyed them very much and every time I listen to them and read the manuals I learn something new.

You are a great mentor, I hope to meet you soon.
