Hypnotherapy 101: Introduction To Hypnotherapy

Combining Conversational and Covert Hypnosis, NLP, & High Emotional Intelligence, Dr. Kawakami creates amazingly enjoyable learning experiences that will have you asking for more, more than before, even nowww!


In this Introductory Level workshop, there will be a review of history, concepts, definitions and misconceptions of hypnosis, ethical use, diagnostic considerations, and how language (words) and imagery (pictures) influence the emotional brain.


This basic Introductory Level workshop will be both didactic and experiential with an emphasis on laying the foundation every clinician needs — a neuroscience background for implementing hypnotherapy in your clinical practice.


Do you really want to continue with the outdated talk-therapy approach of “tell me more about…” …”what I hear you saying is…”?


If you can choose between resolving a client “issue” in as little as 1-3 sessions OR having to slowly address “issues” over months and years – what would you choose?  Seriously! Would you take the elevator or the stairs?


It’s time to get excited about developing a life changing skill set that creates rapid, deeper, and long-lasting change now!
