This basic introductory level workshop will be both didactic and experiential with an emphasis on acquiring neuroscience background for implementing hypnosis skills to use in your clinical practice.

After learning the neuroscience behind hypnosis for facilitating transformational change, this workshop will introduce some common factors research for effective psychotherapy. Next, participants will be acquiring the basic practical skill for reaching emotional brain with coached practice in facilitating connection (with language and paralanguage) and hypnotic induction techniques.

Dr. Elizabeth Michas, a Florida licensed psychologist and Certified Master Practitioner of Rapid Resolution Therapy and Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapy is the instructor for the course. Dr. Michas will review the basics of hypnosis, plus the key ingredients in brain-changing conversations. She will emphasize exactly what to do in sessions to maximize therapist directed neuroplasticity, and emotional pain intervention.

  • What Clients Say

    “Comprehensive, clear and simplified model of Brain-based Hypnotherapy. The training gave me understanding and confidence to implement this effective treatment with my clients. Brilliant!”

    Louise Peters, Psy.D, Melbourne, Florida

    “Dr. Michas simply makes everything makes sense.”

    Norman H. Bissel III, MS, NCC, LPC, Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern, Spring Hill, Florida

    “Dr. Michas is a radiant wealth of knowledge. This course is the critical brain-based information needed for effective hypnotherapy. I am excited to have this deeper understanding of how and why hypnotherapy is able to heal the brain and thereafter therefore, the person!”

    Wendy Hixon, LMHC, NCC, Indialantic, Florida

    “The Brain-based Hypnotherapy Basic course is awesome in explaining how the brain works. It actually explains how easy or simple it is to insert new information into the brain through hypnosis.”

    Pamela Earl, LMHC, Venice, Florida

    “The Basic Brain-based Hypnotherapy Course was an excellent presentation of the basics of utilizing brain science as the FOUNDATION for hypnotherapy. All of the information “makes sense” and follows “logic”. Information was presented in a way that the “lay” person can “get it” and this is the key for the prospective client to “get it”. I have attended at least 12 hypnotherapy trainings including two 50-hour trainings and NEVER received this basic, valuable information to help explain to clients why the brain-based hypnotherapy is so effective and long lasting.”

    Sophia Greiner, LCSW, CAP, ICADC, Brooksville, Florida

    “This training made it very easy to explain to the client the brain-based way of getting and staying in a calm-optimal versus being driven by undesirable thinking and emotions. I can apply learned hand inductions, energy inductions immediately and not be hesitant to do it with my clients right away.”

    Sophia Greiner, LCSW, CAP, ICADC, Brooksville, Florida

    “This was an awesome training on Brain-Based Hypnotherapy. This really provided a deeper understanding of how the brain works, the preciseness of the steps or procedure and the words used.”

    Pamela Earl, LMHC, Venice, Florida

    “Thank you for your generosity, knowledge, and for demonstrating in a clear way how, as a clinician, I am able to use what I learn. It is exciting to experience the learning and to be able to share it with my clients effectively.”

    Melanie Cassulo, LMHC, Fort Walton Beach, Florida

    “I was very impressed with the fluidity of the transitions of clearing several traumas of problematic life areas from one type of intervention to another. The videos were excellent that show the efficacy of those interventions with the client’s own testimony of how he/she had been freed of the ‘emotional’ bondage that was connected to the brain’s data of the trauma/traumatic experience.”

    Sophia Greiner, LCSW, CAP, ICADC, Brooksville, Florida

    “The gift of providing clinical hypnosis to my patients has been happening by frames for what I have learned. The gift of this course has been a frame that guides my hypnosis and added the understanding of how it works. Thank you for advancing my knowledge in this brain-based understanding of a wonderful treatment approach.”

    Chuck Claxton, PhD, LMFT, LMHC, Panama City, Florida

    “This course takes my hypnosis skills to a whole other level. Understanding the neuroscience backing what I am practicing has totally boosted my confidence and excitement about creating transformational change for my clients. Thank you Dr. Elizabeth.”

    Louise Peters, Psy.D, Melbourne, Florida

    “Amazing, user-friendly way of working with clients, Dr. Elizabeth presents a balance of training, educational model, and practice that allows you to embody the brain-based hypnotherapy skills.”

    “A lot of positive experiences with this training. The location provides a natural, calming atmosphere. Dr Michas is an excellent instructor who ensures everyone is comfortable with what’s being taught. I’m excited to have a new, pragmatic way of explaining to clients both how they experience pain and how they can heal based on brain science”

    Nathan Kerr, LPC, Dacula, GA

    Professionally, I must say that I have put what I learned from you to use right away after training, and I am so much more comfortable using hypnosis every day and haven’t had a script in my lap since your class! It was so beneficial and made me much more confident and capable of using RRT and hypnosis effectively. I am so grateful to have found you and hope to be able to join you in your beautiful condo again for training when things slow down a bit for me.”

    Trish Adams, LCSW, Port Orange, FL
