Essential confidence building for hypnotherapists 

The Academy for Hypnosis is excited to announce a two-day in-person workshop for students of hypnosis and qualified hypnotherapists. This practical workshop will help you sharpen your inductions and enable you to support your clients more deeply with their existing issues, conditions, and phobias.

Day 1 - Trance Inductions

Our entry into formal hypnosis begins with identifying the type of induction that suits the occasion.  Creating the right setting, the best experience and the correct intensity draws the subconscious mind into its place of expansion. On day 1 we will take a practical journey through various forms of induction used through the ages, and explore how each sets the tone for the healing to come.

Most hypnotherapists tend to stick to the induction they feel most comfortable with,  and ignore other options. Join Sharon Waxkirsh and Dr Brice Lemaire on a fascinating and unique enactment of inductions from the sleep temples to Abbe Faria, Mesmer to Esdaile, and beyond.  Discover these once highly esteemed and mystical collections of inductions that will come to serve and expand your own repertoire.

By experience inductions that are mostly overlooked will build your confidence in using a different inductions for different circumstances.

Day 2 - Transforming Therapy™

 When we start to practice Transforming Therapy™ with our clients, it's natural to become acutely aware of our own deficiencies, for example; in our ability to hold, track and be led by the client, and bring appropriate educational wisdom to the subconscious, without allowing our own ideas and values to influence their experience.

Sharon Waxkirsh, Director of The Academy for Hypnosis and Brian Ackie, Gestalt and counselling specialist, will offer practical guidance into the process of Transforming Therapy™ gained from their own extensive experience of working with clients and from their extensive examination of the theory behind the practice. The course will cover:

  • Storytelling v. emotional evaluation of the story - what's the difference and why does it matter?
  • How to move from storytelling into emotional engagement
  • Developing themes around the use of language and questioning techniques
  • Opportunities to explore emotional engagement and depth
  • Exploring transference and countertransference
  • Learning to trust your own journey as the therapist
