As a result, graduates are insured competency in a wide variety of practical and effective therapeutic skills.

Because graduates understand the transformational effects of hypnosis from the inside out, they are better prepared to empower clients to move through their own inner territories.

RRT facilitates transformation that effects emotions, beliefs, behaviors and even self-concept. he mind is cleared, organized and optimized. Desired change is automatic and lasting.

Michael & Diane Yapko


The 100-hour online training program is divided into five phases, each progressively building in intensity and complexity as we go along. In every phase, the emphasis is on practicality: What are the practical implications of concepts being taught, and what are the techniques derived from these insights? There will be structured practice sessions in every phase; after all, the primary goal of the entire training is to give you the tools needed to integrate hypnosis skillfully into your clinical practice. There will be didactic presentations on key topics, live and video demonstrations, and ample opportunity for addressing questions and discussing the finer points of presented material. 


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.
