Train your UNCONSCIOUS Mind


Reinforces new behaviors by speaking directly with your unconscious mind. Hypnosis supports you in making ​healthy changes like (not limited to) quitting smoking, pain relief, hot flashes, insomnia, anxiety, weight loss, ​and more!

Hypnosis is a powerful tool that can help you achieve your goals by ​tapping into your subconscious mind. By using hypnosis, you can ​reinforce new behaviors and break old habits that have been holding you ​back. Whether you want to quit smoking, manage pain, reduce hot flashes, ​improve your sleep, or overcome anxiety, hypnosis can help.

During a hypnosis session, a hypnotist will guide you into a state of deep ​relaxation, allowing you to access your unconscious mind. In this state, ​you are more receptive to positive suggestions and can begin making the ​desired changes. With hypnosis, you can create new neural pathways in ​your brain, making it easier to adopt healthy habits and let go of negative ​patterns.

Hypnosis is a safe and effective way to make positive changes in your life. ​It is a non-invasive approach that can be used with other treatments or ​on its own. With the help of a skilled hypnotherapist, you can achieve ​your goals and overcome any obstacles that stand in your way.

“Patients are patients because they are out of rapport with their own unconscious... Patients are people who ​have had too much programming - so much outside programming that they have lost touch with their Inner ​selves.”

“My learning over the years was that I tried to direct the patient too much. It took me a long time to let things ​develop and make use of things as they developed.”~ Milton Erickson, 1976

Immerse yourself in the transformative world of Milton Erickson's ​hypnotic techniques. Over three days, you will master the art of subtle ​communication and learn to tap into the unlimited power of the ​unconscious mind. This training equips you with the skills to facilitate ​profound change in individuals, helping them overcome obstacles and ​unleash their untapped potential. Whether you're a seasoned practitioner ​or new to hypnosis, the Milton Erickson Training at Architects for the Soul ​is your gateway to unlocking the secrets of effective and compassionate ​influence.

Three Key Elements

  1. Utilization Approach: Milton Erickson revolutionized hypnosis by ​introducing the concept of utilization. Rather than viewing resistance ​as an obstacle, Erickson saw it as an opportunity. He would creatively ​use a client's resistance, incorporating it into the hypnotic process to ​achieve therapeutic outcomes. This approach became a cornerstone ​in modern hypnotherapy.
  2. Indirect Hypnosis Techniques: Erickson was known for his mastery of ​indirect suggestion and storytelling. By weaving metaphors and ​anecdotes into his sessions, he could bypass conscious resistance ​and communicate directly with the unconscious mind. This approach ​has influenced a wide range of therapeutic modalities, not just ​hypnotherapy.
  3. Ericksonian Language Patterns: Erickson developed a unique set of ​language patterns designed to induce trance and facilitate ​therapeutic change. These patterns involve the strategic use of ​language to guide individuals into altered states of consciousness. ​Many contemporary hypnotherapists and psychologists integrate ​Ericksonian language patterns into their practices.

The training is led by experienced hypnotherapists who have studied and practiced Ericksonian hypnosis for ​many years. They will guide you through hands-on exercises and demonstrations, giving you plenty of ​opportunities to practice your skills and receive feedback. By the end of the three days, you will have a deep ​understanding of the principles and techniques of Milton Erickson's hypnosis, and be ready to apply them in ​your own practice. Whether you're a therapist, coach, educator, or simply someone interested in personal ​growth, this training will give you powerful tools for transformation. Join us at Architects for the Soul and ​unlock your full potential as a hypnotist.
