A brief overview of the course: ‘Universe, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.’

retreat 2There are some facts of life that we cannot alter. The things we can change are our attitudes, beliefs and behaviours. One of the best ways to access that ability to change our internal representations is to learn techniques of deep relaxation. You can only benefit from reaching states of deep relaxation.

With self-hypnosis, this state of relaxation can be reached easily and frequently to give you the calm you need to look at life clearly, and gain perspective. In this short course, you will learn how to use visualisation techniques to help you to relax, and how it can help your dreams become reality. You will learn how to have more of what you want, and less of what you do not!

You will experience what it is like to be in a state of deep relaxation, and you will discover its benefits. With practice, you will learn how to apply this method of relaxation in your life, and how to induce this resourceful state for yourself. You will discover that you have the resources within to achieve your goals. You will notice that you can gain control over your reactions to stressful situations, and that you have become highly motivated.

In essence, you will be empowered to take charge of your life by gaining control of your mind and body through the application of hypnosis.

I look forward to hearing from you – Be well.
