Gentle Protocols for Rewiring the Brain
Hypnosis is making a comeback as research demonstrates its effectiveness in relieving anxiety, resolving traumatic memories, breaking habitual patterns, and reducing chronic pain. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to safely guide your clients into hypnotic states, effectively frame suggestions, clear subconscious blocks, and activate the client’s own healing responses. Find out why hypnosis is an effective tool for influencing subcortical areas of the brain, and learn the art of communicating with the subconscious using metaphor, multisensory language, and Ericksonian-inspired utilization techniques. You may even experience your own transformative trance through live demonstrations and experiential activities. You’ll discover how to:
- Use at least three inductions that safely guide clients into hypnotic states
- Craft direct and indirect suggestions for relieving anxiety, reducing pain, and breaking habitual patterns
- Resolve traumatic memories safely and painlessly using a simple five-step protocol
