Providing hope and healing is the kind of work that makes you come alive. And you strive to help each client who’s counting on you to deliver.

But sometimes a lack of focus in therapy brings progress to a screeching halt. And traditional treatment approaches can fail to create the openness to change needed to make the therapeutic experience a life-altering one.

Watch this intensive course recording and get indispensable skills and tools from clinical hypnosis to create the focused, relaxed and attentive context necessary to bring about truly transformative results with your clients!!!

Dr. Eric Willmarth is a past president of the American Society for Clinical Hypnosis, the Society for Psychological Hypnosis (APA Div. 30), and the Society for Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis.
