15 Week Immersive
NLP Hypnosis Certification Program

The Curriculum - What You'll Learn

This Internationally Acclaimed Program
Has Two Themes

The first is to teach you how to use hypnosis to create powerful and lasting change with yourself and others by working directly with the unconscious mind. The second is to teach you the amazing language patterns of influence modeled through NLP that can make you a more conscious and better communicator in every aspect of your life.

We have had consistent feedback that this training is truly exciting and empowering, and in completing it, people have developed a genuine competency in these areas.

Participating in this NLP Hypnosis program will increase your range of choice and understanding about how to reach your own unlimited potential and help others achieve theirs. The eclectic methods and skills you’ll gain represent the best from Milton Erickson, the famous work of Dave Elman, and the powerful hypnotic skills of NLP and Human Patterning.

In this program, you will learn the big picture of hypnosis and how it works. You will find out how to analyze a situation to recognize each element in a hypnotic technique so you have a thorough grounding in why it will work. You will gain insight into when a particular approach or technique will be effective. You will have the skills to create deep unconscious rapport with others and guide them, confidently, to a successful outcome. You will learn to work with hypnosis respectfully, in ways that are best for yourself, the other and the systems in which you are involved.

You will be able to break any problem down into its component parts and discover the patterns that exist so you will know just what to do to make an appropriate change or communicate effectively.

You will be able to create rapport at all levels to help you interact effectively and truly make contact with another person.

You will discover the impact of each word you utter, the pauses in your speech and of your subtle (and largely out of awareness) body language. Each word you speak creates an internal experience in you and in anyone with whom you interact. In this NLP Hypnosis program, you will learn step-by-step methods for creating lasting change and for developing them in your own style.

Finally, you will learn how everything is in relation to everything else as a system. You will learn the underlying principles that will give you the greatest potential for success with yourself and others. The tools, skills and patterns you will make yours in this program will be useful in official trance work with others, in self hypnosis and in your daily communications. You will get to to tap into the many forms of wisdom and healing capabilities of the subconscious mind.  In addition, the trainings are fun and lively!
