I wonder how fast you might be at ferreting out something from 30+ years ago that was firmly and accurately lodged in your memory but without adequate normal references?

Vallee: I'm not sure that what we learn under hypnotic regression is useful. Hypnosis is really a delicate technique and some of the people in our field who are using it are doing more harm than good. If the hypnotist doesn't have medical training - and most of these people have no medical training - the results may be disastrous for the witness.

My memory of Hopkins based on the transcripts in the reading I did was that he WAS leading witnesses. That was one of the first things that made me suspicious of the abduction phenomenon, at least how it was being presented.
Hopkins was a big proponent of "screen memories." In other words, if he wasn't satisfied with a story he would define that as a screen memory implanted by the aliens and the subject would be repeatedly hypnotized and asked leading questions until he got the story that matched his narrative. This was the nineties and I was also reading about the "satanic panic" of that era and the phenomenon of false memories which seemed to be related.
IMO that is part of the reason that Hopkins was finding accounts of malicious little aliens and, for example, that other researcher you linked to (Donald Worley) is finding accounts of Nordics and Reptilians. Perhaps it's all in a Strange area that straddles reality, mind and spirit and to some extent you can find whatever you want to look for.
