Do you really want to continue with the outdated talk-therapy approach of “tell me more about…”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 


Slowly addressing “issues” over months and years – what would you choose?

Would you take the elevator or the stairs?

Imagine developing a life-changing and powerful skill set that creates rapid, deeper, and long-lasting change now!

In this Introductory Level one-day workshop, there will be an important foundation established via 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.

Your workshop experience 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.


  1. Define and explore the history of Hypnosis. 
  2. Define hypnotherapy and review evidence regarding its effectiveness.
  3. Identify misconceptions of hypnosis, ethical use, diagnostic considerations.
  4. Define the Mind and discuss the differences between unconscious, conscious, and subconscious mind.
  5. Explore the Neuroscience of Hypnosis (top, bottom, middle brain), polyvagal theory, and the role of the Autonomic system (Sympathetic, Parasympathetic) in processing of memory and emotional reactions.
  6. Compare talk therapy methods vs using hypnotherapy and other somatic techniques for resolving issues.
  7. Utilize the latest research on the importance of engaging the emotional brain and somatic experience to facilitate new learning and how hypnotherapy is a perfectly suited intervention. 
  8. Demonstrate several ways to induce a hypnotic trance and the importance of engaging the emotional brain.
