    About the Basic Workshop: 

    Hypnosis is a highly effective, evidence-based clinical tool with broad applications for the treatment of anxiety, phobias, depression, pain and trauma-related disorders. In medical and dental settings hypnosis is an excellent way to prepare patients for procedures and has long been associated with improved outcomes. In this intensive workshop, participants will receive in-depth training in both the theory and practice of hypnosis from some of New England’s leading clinical hypnotherapists. Unlike any other hypnosis basic training program, we offer a full 14 hours of guided skill practice to prepare clinicians to begin using hypnosis immediately in their practices.


    If you have questions about how hypnosis might serve you in your clinical practice, please contact Lorna McKenzie-Pollock, LICSW at neschworkshops@gmail.com to be connected to a NESCH hypnosis expert.
