Course Description:

Attend this 2-day Intensive Certificate Workshop and transform your practice to heal anxiety, stress and trauma, sleep, eating disorders, and addiction and pain.

Leave this high-impact certificate workshop and immediately apply the following hypnosis skills in your practice:
  • Go into self-hypnosis
  • Work with a partner to do a pre-trance interview to discover abilities and help for individualizing in trance
  • Induce trance
  • Use direct and indirect suggestion
  • Deepen trance with hypnotic phenomena
  • Elicit relaxation and calm
  • Activate positive unconscious processes
  • Successfully end trance

By working indirectly and unconsciously in hypnosis, you bypass your client’s conscious limitations and enlist resources to help resolve entrenched problems.

The unconscious is a reservoir of potential, and hypnosis is the way to access that potential. Neurological pathways function automatically and can be engaged and used to help heal disorders that might be difficult to do deliberately and consciously.

This is your opportunity for personal self-transformation as you also learn about hypnotic techniques that can be applied for clients.

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, protocols, and a clear understanding of hypnotic effects in the brain, this workshop will inform, uplift, and transform.
Objectives:
  1. Recognize the intelligent unconscious brain pathways and how hypnosis accesses them for therapy.
  2. Explain how hypnosis changes the brain.
  3. Describe direct and indirect suggestion, practice each form, and learn a 4-step method to apply them therapeutically.
  4. Demonstrate inducing and coming out of self-hypnotic trance.
  5. Practice inducing and working with trance through partner practice.
  6. Employ key trance phenomena to deepen hypnosis using sensory, motor, time and visual alterations.
  7. Distinguish the role of the HPA fear/stress pathway in trauma and stress and learn hypnotic protocols to calm the pathway and return it to balance.
  8. Apply hypnotic techniques to reconsolidate implicit memories to resolve trauma.
  9. Define pain pathway and matrix, and practice hypnotic suggestions and trance to alter and diminish sensations and experience of pain for handling it better.
  10. Recognize how the reward pathway is compromised by addiction and hypnotic methods of suggestion and trance to return the reward pathway to balance for overcoming substance abuse.
  11. List brain patterns along with conscious and unconscious factors in eating disorders and learn suggestion and trance techniques to develop healthy eating habits.
