"Superlative use of examples"

"There was evidence from research to back up everything that was taught."

The strongest aspect of the workshop? "The actual presentations of hypnosis and seeing someone else in the class do the same."

While cognitive therapies help clients manage problems, the brain responds differently in relaxation than in waking state. Relaxation, guided imagery, or hypnotic processes operate at a different level neurologically to help clients experience life differently at an automatic, visceral level. These processes are empirically based, solution-focused, fast and effective.

Practical Training: The focus of the course is on developing the skills of a professional clinical hypnotist. While a substantial amount of information is presented, this skill development, both in inducing hypnosis and in managing suggestions, is emphasized. The course also addresses emotional communication, empathy and persuasive skills. Many self- help processes use hypnotic principles. You will understand and learn to use relaxation techniques, therapeutic guided imagery and much more. Dr. Mau demonstrates techniques and discusses actual client cases. Participants practice the skills in class.
