Advanced Hypnotherapy Training Intensive

This is an advanced course in hypnotherapy.  The course has the prerequisite of having received certification in hypnosis by some state or national association such as the National Guild of Hypnotists.  Students should already have experience hypnosis and are looking to sharpen their skills.

The focus of this intensive seven-day advanced hypnotherapy intensive will be to take the student/practitioner to a higher level of confidence in working with the common and sometimes not so common issues that clients come to a hypnotherapist for help on.

This intensive course will include a minimum of six hours of hands-on experience practicing hypnotic techniques.  Supervised by the instructor and other hypnotherapists accomplished using the techniques being covered.

Master Advanced Inductions and Deepening Techniques: Instant and Rapid Inductions.

Students will receive a copy of a rapid induction in the class so that he or she can already be familiar with it. This approach saves class time. The use the induction will be explained and practiced in class. However the student in not required to use this induction during the class, as long as he or she is able to perform some kind of rapid induction (2 to 4 minute induction designed to take the client into a state of somnambulism). Any kind of Dave Elman induction that the student is already familiar with will satisfy this requirement.

Instant inductions will also be covered during the class. The student will learn at least one instant induction and also learn the mechanics of instant inductions so that he or she may construct new instant induction on his or her own, to suit a particular kind of practice.

Professional, Progressive, Holistic (Mind-Body-Spirit) approach.

At Banyan Hypnosis Center For Training & Services, Inc. we often utilize a Mind-Body-Spirit or Holistic approach whenever it is appropriate (depending up client issues and belief systems). Out of this approach came 7th Path, a new and unique approach to self-hypnosis. It is unique because it: 1) is taught to the client while in hypnosis, 2) offers the client the ability to use his or her own spiritual belief systems as a part of the change process, 3) focuses on first removing old subconscious programming that is impeding the client's process before new suggestions of change are given.

Virtually Universal Approach To Addictions, Emotional Issues, and More.

Because Banyan Hypnosis Center For Training & Services, Inc. always has a number of hypnotherapists work at the center at any time. It was necessary that a system had to be developed that was highly reliable, consistent, learnable and teachable. Since the center was opened we have performed over 5000 individual one-on-one hypnosis session. Out of this experience came a process that we call 5-PATH®, or Five Phase Advanced Transformational Hypnosis.

5-PATH® is a systematic and predictable approach to hypnotherapy that provides the hypnotherapist and almost universal approach to dealing with most of the issues and problems that they client's experience. Here is an overview of the 5-PATH® process.

  1. Direct Suggestions Phase The purpose of this phase is many fold, but the following are designed to accomplish some of the main goals: bring the client to a point where he or she is reliably hypnotizable at an appropriate level for hypnotherapy, improve his or her confidence that the hypnosis will be useful, and bring about some level of results so that the client will be motivated to continue in therapy.

    In order to accomplish these goals the client is carefully prepared for the first session by educating the client regarding the hypnosis process. Suggestions to be used are authorized by the client in advance. Then an appropriate hypnotic induction is used. Depth of trance is tested using a hidden test (so the client does not experience failure if sufficient level of hypnosis has not been obtained yet). Any additional deepening is done to obtain an appropriate level of hypnosis, usually somnambulism.  After the level of hypnosis has been tested another test is given that the client will be aware of so that he or she knows that he has become hypnotized. Then the agreed-upon suggestions are given.  The client is then emerged from hypnosis and receives at least two additional tests/convincers for post hypnotic suggestibility, such as time distortion and sensitivity to a color.

  2. Age Regression Phase This phase of the hypnotherapy process utilizes one of the most powerful techniques available to the hypnotherapists. But many don't feel utilizing this extremely useful and versatile hypnotherapeutic technique because of past difficulties in attempting it. Or some fear using it because of lack of training.

    Because the client has experienced the first phase of the 5-PATH® system, Direct Suggestion he or she is now more hypnotizable that before. The first phase has greatly increased the probability of success of have a revivification during age regression (an actual reliving of the experience, rather than merely a increased memory or hypermanesia).

    Typically age regression is directed at both uncovering the initial sensitizing even which started the problem, but also, the client is able to gain insight into the issue. Appropriately accomplished this is one of the most powerful techniques a therapist can use. Then additional suggestions for change are given because this will cause a reorganization of the subconscious mind, at which time they will become hyper-suggestible.

  3. Forgiveness of Others Age regression removes trauma and erroneous programming from the past. It also improves client's insight. Forgiveness therapies remove connections to old behaviors. The are emotional connections of guild and anger.

    Forgiveness of Others therapy is based upon the work of Fritz Pearls. Many talk therapists have used his chair therapy. It is a difficult technique to utilize when the client is in the normal "waking" state of consciousness, and results are limited. But in hypnosis the work can be done much more effectively. To the client, the person in the other chair is really there and the forgiveness is very real. Direct suggestion is then also done to reinforce the change that the client came in for.

  4. Forgiveness of Self In the fourth phase this approached is continued but the person to be forgiven is the self. During this phase the client gains insight to an appropriate level of responsibility of the issue, and forgives him or herself. This is an extremely powerful part of the process. Some of our therapist actually believe that the previous three phases are just there to get to this point! Of course that is not the case, but the session is so powerful that it often seems that way. Additional suggestions are then also given to reinforce the change that they came into make.

  5. Parts Mediation Therapy Most of our clients don't need to go through this phase of hypnotherapy. It is a special phase that was specifically designed to address secondary gain issues. Any psychotherapist is familiar with this phenomena, where the cause of the issue has been addressed but on occasion the problem may continue. Secondary gain issues are caused environmental conditions that continue to reinforce and thus produce the problem or behavior.

    For example a drug user may go back to using drugs because of the desire to once again be accepted by the group of drug users that he or she was previously associated with. Another common issue sustained by secondary gain is that of chronic pain. Even after the pain has been controlled through the use of hypnosis, the pain may reoccur if the client lost something else substantial when the pain was controlled, for example disability payments, family sympathy, and being excused from undesirable work or chores.

    Parts Mediation Therapy was developed from mediation techniques used by individuals that settle disputes between individuals. These techniques are then used intra-psychically to help the client reach a win-win situation that relieves the client from the complaint.
