Milton Erickson was one of the forefathers of the solution-focused attitude to therapy. Rather than positioning himself as the expert therapist who can cure or fix patients, he believed that everyone has the resources within themselves to overcome their issues. Erickson used creative and imaginative ways to help people to do this and developed hypnotic language skills that have become known as 'Ericksonian'.

In this is a practical training course you will have the opportunity to watch live classroom demonstrations of Ericksonian hypnosis with volunteers clients. This will allow you to learn how to conduct a full client session from start to finish.

The best way to learn how to develop this skill is to watch and then practise with fellow classmates with the tutor close by to give advice and support.
