Ericksonian Hypnosis training is a powerful combination of skills and knowledge with which to promote profound personal growth and achieve change.

Acquiring these highly effective methods will reinforce your professional expertise, and can have a profound effect on your personal life as well.

Why use Ericksonian Hypnosis?

Ericksonian Hypnosis is a natural, conversational approach that is both gentle, yet powerful.  When you use Ericksonian methods you:

  • refine your ability to read non-verbal communication
  • enrich your ability to pace and lead with subtlety
  • learn how to speak directly to the unconscious mind
  • recognize and giving sophisticated messages
  • facilitate long lasting change

What makes hypnosis “Ericksonian”?

Ericksonian Hypnosis is based on the idea that people already have all the resources they need to change! The traditional approach to hypnosis required “hypnotic technique” on the “subject”. Ericksonian hypnosis sees trance as a natural state arising from life events.

The Ericksonian approach looks for how and where trance is already occurring, rather than creating one artificially.

How is this training different?

Your trainer, Anthony Scannella highlights specific, practical strategies that can be used for almost any helping situation. They are designed to activate your creativity and flexibility. Some exercises are a lot of fun and some are downright serious but they all are intended to deepen involvement, learning, and change.

The training is intensive and personal. With Tony as your model, you will be immersed in learning Ericksonian Hypnosis. With Tony’s coaching and   guidance, you will also practice it and apply it to your own professional skill set.
