Ericksonian Hypnotherapy & Advanced NLP Practitioner Programme. Level 5

Ericksonian Hypnotherapy, when used correctly, is powerful. It tell therapists that we need to use the client’s problem - to get rid of it. This sounds odd. But it works on the concept that the answers are already undiscovered in the client’s mind. Erickson developed special language patterns.

These enabled him to discover what a person actually needs when they come for help. You will learn how to use Ericksonian language and protocols. So the client can make fast and permanent changes in their thoughts, beliefs and actions. Many Ericksonian language patterns and other processes are incorporated into NLP. Thus it is natural to combine the two courses.

The Level 5 Ericksonian Hypnotherapy Practitioner Course is not all about theory. There is quite a lot of practical within this course. There is no better way to learn a ‘new language’ that practicing on someone else.
