Client Centered Regression and Parts Therapy
Instructor: C. Roy Hunter
4 weeks/40 hours of online instruction
This course will cover the basic essentials of regression and parts therapy, starting with the foundation of client centered hypnosis. Included will be tips on how to know when to use either regression to discover and release causes of problems, or when to use parts therapy to help clients resolve inner conflicts. There is special emphasis on knowing the difference between leading and guiding, in order to minimize the risk of false memories and to avoid projecting preconceived conclusions into the sessions. Aproximately 8 hours of pre-recorded video and 2 hours of Live Online Class Discussion per week.
