Hypnosis: Helping Clients Regain Emotional Control

Masterclass: 7pm Thursday 20th June  2024

Many psychological and physiological conditions are manifestations of negative ‘self-hypnosis’.

They develop from responses to past events that have led to embedded blocks, barriers and ‘triggers’, including phobias.

Clinical hypnotherapy is a fast, safe, and effective way of working with clients to get to the cause and turn these responses around through communicating with the subconscious mind.

This introduction to hypnosis will cover

🍉 The power of hypnosis as a healing tool
🍉 How it works, and why it is so effective.
🍉 A few simple techniques you can use straight away, and an understanding of how you could develop your healing practice further
