Hypnosis as a tool of treatment has become increasingly important as more and more schools of psychotherapy come to the obvious realization that your focus defines you. What a difference to focus on what’s right with someone than to focus on what’s wrong! In this demonstration, hypnosis will be used as a means of identifying and consolidating personal resources that can assist in promoting a higher level of well being.
