What We Teach

We teach Hypnosis & Ericksonian Psychotherapy

Milton Erickson MD is considered the father of modern hypnotherapy. His definition of hypnotherapy is:

After many years of clinical work, thousands of clients, and hours of teaching in this field, David Kennedy developed this comprehensive and practical course in Hypnosis and Hypnotic techniques, and Neuro-linguistic Programming.

Over the years, this has been added to and refined. We teach an eclectic model of hypnosis which is not limited by focusing on a particular school of thought. While the standard (and universal) techniques and processes of hypnosis are taught, we are influenced by and teach in the spirit of Milton Erickson. Ericksonian psychotherapy is client-centred. What this means in practical terms is that we aim to teach therapists to meet each client as an individual, and to adapt their therapeutic technique as appropriate for that person. Ultimately, good hypnotherapy is about good communication.

The Clinical Practice of Hypnosis Course incorporates a theoretical and practical base for the practice of hypnosis as a modality on its own, or as an adjunct to other professions.
