78 minutes
LESSON 5

Power Language!


Learn what Mike Mandel refers to as "power language". These lessons will apply within and outside of hypnosis. You'll use power language in normal conversation, in pre-talk, or during hypnotic work. Just this lesson alone will give you life-changing results.

71 minutes
LESSON 7

Hypnotic Metaphors - Part I


This lesson introduces you to metaphor and the Milton Erickson handshake interrupt induction. It nicely bridges with what you learned in lesson 6 and gives you more conversational techniques.

82 minutes
LESSON 9

Hypnotic Deepeners and Confusion


You'll learn how to amplify trance and how to use the Milton H. Erickson confusion principle. Mike teaches one particular confusion technique that he's never taught anybody until this academy. Bonus: We've included new language patterns for you to add to your toolbox.

84 minutes
LESSON 11

Building Your Toolbox - Part II

74 minutes
LESSON 15

Ericksonian Language Development and Getting Deeper Trances

88 minutes
LESSON 17

Dealing with Phobias and Anxieties


In this lesson Mike teaches you all about how to deal with phobia and anxieties. Ineffective hypnotists often think these are the same thing - they are not! Pay close attention to the fine points in this material and you'll become far better than most (poorly trained) hypnotists.

100 minutes
LESSON 19

Smoking Cessation, Addictions and Cravings


In this lesson Mike Mandel shows you how to help people with all sorts of addictions and cravings including how to deal with smokers. If you're helping people with these issues this lesson alone will transform your results and your business.

105 minutes
LESSON 21

Weight Management


Why call it "weight management" instead of "weight loss"? Because when you lose something you attempt to find it again.  We don't want our clients finding their lost weight. You'll learn Mike Mandel's 4-session approach to helping clients achieve their ideal body composition while building up their self esteem and installing supportive, positive beliefs.

117 minutes
LESSON 23

Self Hypnosis


This lesson is all about the wonderful world of self hypnosis. Mike and Chris share many methods and the three-step setup that you must use to get the best results.  It's easy to do! We've included this highly detailed lesson because it's an important topic and we're sick of seeing others try to charge a lot of money for JUST this topic.  We're committed to delivering superior training and value.

86 minutes
LESSON 4

Ericksonian Principles (continued)


Since Erickson's work is so fundamental to what we teach, we had to break the core material into two lessons. Learn how to be artfully vague with language, and how to build rapport and notice trance as it develops in your clients / subjects.

67 minutes
LESSON 6

Impromptu Hypnosis


Mike Mandel takes you beyond Ericksonian hypnosis and introduces you to the basics of direct hypnosis based on suggestibility tests and the principles of heteroaction and homoaction (If you don't know these two terms you need this course!)

83 minutes
LESSON 8

Hypnotic Metaphors - Part II


Nested loops: This is a highly effective conversational hypnosis technique many instructors don't understand and don't teach. We also give you the Kinesthetic Ambiguity rapid induction to continue building your toolbox of hypnotic inductions.

85 minutes
LESSON 10

Building Your Toolbox - Part I


Building your toolbox! New suggestibility tests and direct-method inductions (and much more). At this point we're starting to blur the lines between Erickson's artfully vague language and we're soon going to shift into the direct, authoritative model of hypnosis.

89 minutes
LESSON 12

The Direct Method of Hypnosis


Now that you have a very firm grasp of Ericksonian methods, it's time to teach you the direct hypnosis paradigm for personal change. Mike teaches you a logical 7 step method that is easily learned, enabling you to deal with a wide variety of problems and issues.

103 minutes
LESSON 20

Pain Management


Most people don't know this about hypnosis, but it really shines with helping people control pain.  We often get pain management specialists (medical doctors) coming to our live training JUST to learn this topic. In this online training you'll learn several different methods to deal with pain, including submodality shifts, direct suggestion and glove anaesthesia.

98 minutes
LESSON 22

Procrastination and Insomnia


We attack these two common client problems with this lesson. At this point in the lesson plan you'll already have solid ideas and tools to help you deal with both problems, but Mike shares many more nuggets of wisdom to help you achieve superior results.

93 minutes
LESSON 24

The Nominalization Lens Protocol, Pattern Interrupts and More Hypnosis Tools.


In this lesson, Mike hands you several new techniques to help people change their lives.  You'll learn Mike's own "nominalization lens protocol" which helps clients see their life through a new "lens".
