ACHE Annual Conference

May 1-2 (pre-conference) and May 3-5, 2013 — Pasadena, CA

This year I am teaching a day long Refresher course in Hypnotherapy, May 2, 2013, 10:00 am – the-intuitive-heart6:00 pm at the Hilton Hotel in Pasadena. Cost: $150

Have you been away from hypnotherapy for awhile? Perhaps you took training as a retirement option. Are you ready now to reach out and help people? Do you lack confidence in jumping back in?

Or perhaps you’ve been out of school for awhile and could benefit from a refresher. When I started teaching hypnotherapy in 2000 I discovered that I had forgotten some great techniques and that some of my processes weren’t as effective because I was skipping a few key elements.

This hypnotherapy refresher course has been designed just for you. After reviewing the basics you can start/continue your practice with added confidence and self-assurance.

In our morning segment we will cover inductions, deepeners, convincers and the pre-induction interview. In the afternoon segment we will review laws of suggestions, structuring therapeutic suggestions, anatomy of a session and some practical applications of hypnosis.

This course includes lecture, demonstrations and supervised practice. I hope that you can join me!

Hypnotherapy for Dementia Review

Yes, I’m still talking about this. For several months I’ve had this course listed in my newsletter. Just recently I attended this training and I’m excited about what I’ve learned. Let me share a few gems.

In my 24 years of working as a hypnotherapist I didn’t believe that people with dementia would Nightingale Danbe good candidates for hypnosis because they wouldn’t be able to concentrate. Not true! In fact, because their cognitive skills have lessened, their subconscious is much easier to access.

While there is currently no cure for the 1 in 8 Americans who have a type of dementia, hypnotherapy improves their quality of life.

Dr. Dan Nightingale and Dr. Simon Duff conducted a study in the U.K. using hypnotherapy for dementia patients. The group receiving hypnotherapy were taken off their medications and steadily improved over a 9 month course of weekly sessions. They continued to improve once the hypnotherapy was discontinued. The hypnotherapy sessions helped these people to restore lost skills, memories and personality.

Dr. Nightingale will be on blog talk radio with Lori La Bey, Founder of Alzheimer’s Speaks at 8:30 am, May 13, 2013. You can listen to the show here:

On top of everything that I learned in my two-day training I was delighted to discover that Dr. Dan (as his patients call him) is an excellent trainer. Contact Kathy Balland if you would like to get a group together in your area.

Discover Your Heart Centered Story

We are all intuitive. Some are more naturally intuitive than others but everyone can increase their inner “knowing.” Tuning in intuitively can make the difference in the level of healing that takes place in your family member and/or friend’s life.

Our conscious mind explains and our subconscious mind tells a story. An explanation will analyze, dissect, show principles, rules or laws. But a story touches us. It can excite us and move us. We stand back and examine an explanation. We participate in a story and learn from our vicarious experience.

In this experiential 2-hour class you will learn how to open your intuitive heart and share your Heart Center CD Cov001wisdom through your own personal stories.
