This Client Centred Hypnotherapy model is an adaptation of the Client Centred Therapy
developed by Carl Rogers. Client Centred Hypnotherapy used many of the same concepts
proposed by Rogers and places them within the hypnotherapy structure.
The Client Centred Hypnotherapy model can be adapted to suit the many other hypnotherapy
models. By using the Client Centred Hypnotherapy model there is are increased benefits by
the therapists moulding the consultation within the clients reality?
Leon will outline and demonstrate the basic concepts of the Client Centred Hypnotherapy
model. You will also have the opportunity to practice during the workshop with each other.
