Smoking Cessation is a cornerstone to any successful hypnosis practice. As soon as people hear you are a hypnotist one of the first things they will associate with you is smoking cessation. Smoking Cessation brings in new business and creates a strong referral network. It is essential to have an approach that you are confident works.

In this training you will discover:

  • How to screen prospective clients to ensure they are the ideal candidate for your services.
  • How to shape the consultation so that if they are a good fit they are also ready to say yes to working with you
  • The necessary preframes that will create the ideal attitudes and beliefs in your client for their success
  • How to help clients take control of their cravings
  • The P3 Technique which overwrites the old emotional connection to cigarettes
  • The Smoking Destroyer Technique, a powerful strategy that helps clients let go of the identity of being a smoker
  • How to highjack the physical behavior of smoking and use it to drive the change even deeper into the client's neurology.
  • How to manage secondary gain How to close the session so that the client is convincing you that they are a nonsmoker
  • What to do if "it" doesn't work.
  • And much more!

Saturday 2-5:30 PM ET

Among the hypnotist’s top requests for help is the need to change eating behaviors and lose weight. In the USA and UK, obesity is epidemic and people are looking for long-term, sustainable results. While hypnosis isn’t the “magic pill” for such issues, it can certainly make achieving health goals easier.

Despite the demand for help with weight issues, many hypnosis certification courses give little or no training in this area. Helping your clients lose weight isn’t a one-time fix and can involve dealing with influence from many angles, including excess stress, chronic pain, anxiety, entrenched habits, emotional eating, etc.

During this presentation, Kelley will share proven approaches you can immediately apply in your own practice to empower clients in making desired change. Drawing from her 16 years of clinical practice in which she has helped thousands of clients, she teaches not only practical tools but mindsets that will inspire you and your clients.

Be warned: If you struggle with your own weight, you may even find yourself enjoying personal benefits from attending this training!

Sunday 10-1:30 AM ET
