How can we, as health professionals, facilitate positive change that lasts? The key is clinical hypnosis: the language of change. During this two-day workshop, you will learn from our experienced teaching faculty how to enhance your therapeutic relationship with your clients and prime them for success using the unique skills of clinical hypnosis.

Take this opportunity to expand your psychotherapeutic horizons in enjoyable interactive sessions with your colleagues. Come to this workshop to recognize the subtleties of your own subconscious mind in a safe and collegial learning environment, supported by our experienced teaching faculty.

Clinical hypnosis is a powerful therapeutic communication which is founded on solid evidence-based science. We invite you to bring an open heart and mind to experience just how effective clinical hypnosis can be for your clients.
