- Do you sometimes feel you’re adrift with your clients? Stabbing in the dark? Have no real concept of why things do or don’t work with some and not others? Do you dread taking in new clients at times? Do you suffer anxiety before, during and after your sessions? Do you sometimes just not know what to do with someone?
You see, you’ll have probably studied various techniques and strategies but never really considered how to work with people who do not respond predictably to the techniques. This is where your resourcefulness as a therapist is essential. If you’ve been in practice for a couple of years already, you’ll know exactly what I mean. However, even if you’ve been in practice alot longer, these doubts and performance anxieties can still plague you well into your professional career as a hypnotherapist.
This course of teleseminars, that is available to all members, gives you the insights and the tools to be able to get you feeling more comfortable in the therapist’s chair. That means you’ll be more insightful, more confident, and you will be able to take on more clients with less anxiety. In summary, that means more success, and of course, more money! And at only £15 per month that is value you will not find from many other training providers! I challenge you.
Running on a Wednesday the first week of every month, with all the past audios stored in the archives for you to re-listen to whenever you want, these audio lectures are designed to develop you personally as well as professionally. You will become more grounded, more calm and confident, and you‘ll not only be able to do less pre- and post session writing but will find you can attract more clients as you make better use of your time.
At only £15 per month, it really is a no brainer! Why not join me today and in with your subscription, also listen to all the archived monthly guests who share with me their expertise and time so that you can develop your practice and learn from their specialisms.
