The unconscious is a reservoir of potential, and hypnosis is the way to access that potential. By working indirectly and unconsciously in hypnosis, you bypass your client’s conscious limitations and enlist resources to help resolve entrenched problems. You can also utilize powerful self-hypnosis techniques for self-transformation and self-care.
If you are new to hypnosis, you will gain the skills you need to start using hypnosis in your practice. And if you are an experienced hypnotherapist, you will add innovative methods to enhance your work.
With the latest research, case examples, guided trance experiences, opportunities to work with trance induction, helpful handouts, and protocols – this workshop will inform, uplift, and transform!
