Course overview
This is a course for experienced and qualified hypnotherapists who work with, or would like to study, in-depth techniques of hypnoanalysis, present-life regression, reimprinting and related techniques (n.b. - past life regression is not covered).  A similar Advanced Diploma in Transpersonal Hypnotherapy is available for those interested in spiritual hypnosis.
The basic idea of analytical hypnotherapy is to gently uncover information about a problem, usually in the client’s past, which can then be worked with in various ways in order to relieve the necessity for the problem to persist. Analytical hypnotherapy is often not covered extensively in modern live hypnotherapy training courses due to time constrictions and because "evidence-based" techniques are favoured.  If you are a practitioner fascinated by the possibilities of regression hypnosis and would like to learn about it in depth, or to upgrade your previous training in the subject and find out how much more there is to know, this course is for you.
Following this course, you might well realise how much knowledge has been left out of certain hands-on professional hypnotherapy trainings!
No previous knowledge of psychoanalysis, Freud or psychodynamics is assumed as necessary concepts will be introduced as part of the relevant modules. The emphasis will be on what concepts are still useful and meaningful today, and on modern techniques of working with and transforming negative memories to alleviate stress, phobias and the effects of trauma.  
Many script examples are given which you can tailor to your specific needs until you are confident at working script-free.
