Learning Solutions in Hypnosis, C.E.T.

Rob McNeilly, MD

Live meetings, online

It's not surprising that there is a growing interest in hypnosis, and Ericksonian hypnosis in particular, since this approach emphasizes looking with each individual person for what will be relevant for them to resolve their difficulty.  This approach results in a huge relief as well as our effectiveness increasing markedly.  I had the rare privilege of learning from Milton Erickson MD himself towards the end of his life and was inspired to teach my version of what I learnt from him over the last 35 years in Australia, Singapore, Tokyo, Denmark, Brazil, Finland, UK, Ireland, Czech Republic, USA, and insreasingly, online.

I promise that participation in this progam will glive you a solid foundation, in a respectful and effective context.
