Dream Therapy
2022-12-04 at 1:50 PM Pacific Time

Dream Therapy seems it would be an effective tool for demonstrating profound listening skills; I wouldn't expect a client to be anything less than awestruck after relating back to them the depth of their own dream.

Therapeutic Imagery 2

I really liked learning a lot about Imagery. I already use symbols/mantras with my client in sessions and see it as very helpful. Now I gained so much more knowledge and can go deeper with my clients.

This session was incredible. I am so touched by the sensitivity projected by Dr Kapas and his ability to assess the clients with such simplicity. He focus just in what is. I bet that wherever he is . He keeps helping millions of people . What I have learned today goes beyond words.

Great class .I enjoyed learning that the feeling of appreciation reduces stress and cause the brain to wants do something without fear. I was impressed with HRV training creates autonomic balance and increases the regulatory capacity. I was also impressed with the mind flex games presented during this session.

Clinical Case Presentation Volume 2
2022-12-02 at 4:59 PM Pacific Time

This video was a bit confusing for me. I didn't realize until after I chose to take this lesson that there are other lessons that should be viewed first. It would be nice for future students if pre-requisites are listed in the lesson description and that this lesson is moved beneath the pre-requisite lessons. Also, the structure and process of the client interview, diagnosis, recommended therapy, hypnosis, and prognosis were not what I expected. I was surprised the students were able to make any sort of diagnosis and assumptions whatsoever, much less potentially tell the client what to do (get out of the relationship). As a holistic health coach, we are not allowed to give advice, tell our clients what to do, or diagnose in any way because we are not licensed doctors. But this is the first time I've seen a hypnotherapy session from beginning to end, so maybe I just haven't seen what a real session looks like. Lastly, I don't understand what someone's sexuality has to do with their behavior and suggestability. This was also confusing. Maybe I'll understand it better after I review the lesson on sexuality, but would think it should have been covered in the foundations lessons.
