Often individuals who have taken Leve1 and even Level 2 training still are not feeling confident enough to utilize hypnosis in their practice.  Through years of providing consultation, Wendy has put together a course designed to build confidence and enhance skills.  This course focuses primarily on integrating clinical hypnosis into practice, incorporating demonstrations, weaving inductions into clinical applications, incorporating trance ratification to enhance responsiveness, giving a voice to the unconscious including the use of ideomotor signaling, and learning the art of ‘being hypnotic’ and how to craft effective hypnotic suggestions for clinical issues.   (6.5 ASCH advanced credit hours pending, CEU’s are pending.  More info. will be posted when I hear.  However, you can always  individually seek CEU's with respective licensing boards.
