Course Description:

As a clinician, it can be frustrating the number of sessions needed to see results. Too many of our clients spiral out of control over simple every day stress because they don’t have in the moment coping skills. Are you giving them skills they can use in the moment?

We remember seeing Halle, a mom who had experienced complications, pain and trauma with her first birth. It took her 10 years to consider having another child. Sitting in our office three months pregnant, her baby’s health was dependent upon her ability to handle the stress and trauma of the first birth. She would deliver in six months and she needed coping skills today. If you see Halle tomorrow, do you have an approach that can provide her the skills she needs to cope tomorrow?

Attend our seminar and learn the hypnosis techniques we used that transformed Halle’s life and vanished her fears.

This workshop teaches you how to go in and out of the hypnotic state, use direct and indirect forms of suggestion, and employ a four-step method to alter negative self-suggestion. You will experience varied hypnotic phenomena and learn helpful, powerful interventions for anxiety, stress, trauma, substance abuse, pain, sleep and weight.

If you are new to hypnosis, you will gain the skills you need to start adding hypnosis into your practice. Or, if you are an experienced hypnotherapist, you will learn innovative methods to enhance your work. Through the process, you will gain hypnotic skills you can use for enriching your own personal development.

We have spent more than 40 years in the research, neuroscience, and the practice of hypnosis, and have used hypnosis ourselves many times as a personal resource for pain, stress, and accomplishing seemingly impossible tasks. In our own research comparing indirect hypnotherapy to traditional awareness-based therapy, we found subjects working unconsciously in hypnosis, effectively overcame target complaints.

Hope to see you at our workshop! C. Alexander & Annellen M. Simpkins
