Workshop - "Releasing Suppressed Emotions with Self-Control"

Many clients avoid working with their suppressed emotions believing that once they open "that door" they will be overwhelmed and will lose all control. Empower your clients with effective techniques as you help them to create healthy boundaries for emotional release at a pace that is self-determined, beneficial and safe. Help your clients to work constructively with their feelings as they navigate and regulate their emotional responses from the inside out. This 3 hour workshop is packed with useful therapeutic ideas that create a safe mental environment for your clients to explore as they release their suppressed emotions. You can use these techniques as presented or you can build upon these ideas for creating something new. Hypnotherapists of all skill levels will find these evidence-based techniques simple to implement and powerful in helping clients create healthier responses with self-control.
