Invest in learning EMDR and boost your income.

Join our exclusive one-day training course tailored for hypnotherapists,
NLP practitioners and other therapists eager to expand their toolkit!
During this stimulating event you will learn a powerful
breakthrough  therapy for dealing with trauma (PTSD) and much more.
Approved by NICE in the UK for the treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
This therapy is amazing for the client as they do not need to talk about what happened.
They do not need to tell you very much.
No embarrassment.
No need to be worried about letting “secrets” out.
There is no need to give their emotion the correct name it can be called anything as long as the client understands what their word for it means.
E.g Guilt can be called “Shrek”. Your client knows what it means and can remember the feelings without giving us detail.
This makes it easier for the client to come forward and deal with the “issue”.
Work face to face or remotely via video. Come and find out how.

I have used EMDR with Hypnosis to help combat;
Abuse in childhood, Anxiety, General Anxiety Dis-order, Anger,
Bereavement, Bullying (E.g School/Work), Birth Issues, Blockage,
Cravings for Food-Alcohol-Drugs,
Deserve to Die, Distrustful, Danger (Belief),
Fear, Fearful, Fearless (Risks),
Grief, Guilt,Gag Reflex,
Imposter Syndrome, Inadequacy,
PTSD, Phobias, Physical Abuse, Pain,
Robbery, Relationship Issues, Rape,
Shame, Sadness, Survivor Guilt, Sexual Assault, Self Esteem, Substance Abuse,
Unworthy, and much more.
Depending on our volunteers for demonstrations we will address some of these.
EMDR is being requested by more and more people as it gains recognition.
As a therapy it fits well with Hypnosis and can be a rapid form of therapy.
In my opinion Hypnotherapists will benefit from learning EMDR with Hypnosis.
Those of you who have looked for training in EMDR will have found that it is closely protected by a self-appointed organisation which only allow training to people with formal mental health qualifications.

If your reason for learning this powerful therapy is to help people then join me.
If you are looking for a certificate to just join a register, then this is not for you.

This course is suitable for those certified in a fully accredited base therapy and are;
Certified Hypnotherapists,
Trainee Hypnotherapists close to certification,
NLP practitioners, Psychotherapists, Psychiatrists
Doctors e.g. General practitioners and Trauma specialists.
Any other therapy modalities should check with me before booking.
