Title: Introducing Client-Centered Parts Therapy, Professional Hypnosis Training

Format: 2-day workshop

Location: Banyan Hypnosis Center for Training & Services, Inc., 1431 Warner Avenue, Suite E, Tustin, CA, 92780

Program Description: How can you effectively help the client who struggles with an inner conflict? Someone who strongly desires to attain a goal, but who also experiences self-sabotage, may be a prime candidate for PARTS THERAPY. Often using different names, others emulate this profoundly beneficial technique taught and practiced by the late Charles Tebbetts.

Competently facilitated, Parts Therapy often helps people get past barriers when other techniques are insufficient. However, there are pitfalls that must be avoided in order to maximize results for your clients.

This workshop is experiential, and is a MUST for anyone not totally familiar with parts therapy or one of its variations. Roy Hunter himself will teach this course. He is the published author of two major hypnosis texts based on the teachings of the late Charles Tebbetts, as well as his new book, Hypnosis for Inner Conflict Resolution: Introducing Parts Therapy. All who attend will receive a participant workbook.
