Deep State Hypnosis is a leading-edge approach that takes the therapist’s skills to a new level.


Add additional power to your current clinical approach and make treatment more effective in a shorter period of time when you incorporate clinical hypnosis in your practice.


This course will demonstrate how to

  • help clients make positive shifts in the most difficult of trauma experiences,
  • learn the operating system of the body and brain,
  • discover how to regulate the nervous system that impact emotions and perceptions, and
  • create a process to spend more time in thriving.


Hypnosis is gentle, collaborative and powerful in eliciting lasting change in clients. Now you can join long-time Ericksonian-based practitioners, Drs. Carol Kershaw and Bill Wade, in this comprehensive online course where they draw on the resource-based approach of Ericksonian Tradition as well as modern brain science and neurology to provide you a step-by-step guide for applying hypnosis to your clinical practice.


Throughout the course, special emphasis will be given to understanding how trauma affects the brain and how hypnosis can be used to alleviate PTSD symptoms such as anxiety, depression, panic, insomnia, obsessive-compulsive behaviour and difficulty handling anger.


Whether you’re new to hypnosis or an experienced hypnotherapist, this unique training opportunity can improve both your competence and confidence in resolving entrenched trauma using clinical hypnosis.


Drs. Carol Kershaw and Bill Wade will show you step by step how you can use deep state hypnosis to bypass your client’s conscious limitations and enlist resources from the unconscious to help resolve trauma and physical ailments.


Through case examples, video clips, demonstrations, experiential exercises and hands-on experience, Kershaw and Wade will demystify and simplify hypnosis techniques so you can start using them with your clients immediately.
