What is the Introduction to Self-Hypnosis course all about?
We have all heard about hypnosis in one way or another: we’ve seen it in the media, readabout it in books and on the Internet, or we’ve heard about it through family and friends. Butdo we know what it really is and how it improves our lives?

Contrary to popular belief,hypnosis is a natural phenomenon that happens to almost everyone. Every day we can gointo and out of the hypnotic state of mind several times without being consciously aware of it.
When intended as a tool for self-improvement, hypnosis has been proven to be very effectivein helping us change undesired habits or patterns, find resolutions to conflicts and maximizeour potential in different areas, through communicating and connecting with our subconsciousmind.
