Learn from a teacher

Your instructor will be Louise J. Goddard - an experienced expert in hypnosis and NLP and in teaching and business.

Just because someone is knowledgeable and experienced in a subject, e.g. hypnosis or NLP, doesn't necessarily mean they are also adept at teaching it!

Louise J. Goddard is a certified teacher of adults in multiple subjects including computer networking, business, law, and languages, and has been a successful, qualified teacher of adults since 1994.

Said one of her former employers and long-time President of a well-known college in Canada, "Louise is a gifted teacher. Teaching comes naturally to her."

She is also an National Guild of Hypnotists Instructor of hypnosis, a title that demands experience, expertise, and approval by the NGH in person during a rigorous instructors' course.

Additional information about the course content:

There will be useful extra material included, for example, regarding how to deal with or identify certain types of clients, some useful NLP techniques to use before or after hypnosis, and more practical information that comes from Louise Goddard's 10 years of running a successful full-time hypnosis and NLP practice, plus, you can benefit from daily mini-hypnosis sessions to build your resolve, motivation, confidence to use your new skills after the training.

The NGH Hypnosis training runs for 8 full days: four days the first week and four days the following week.

The next 8 day NGH Hypnosis group training will take place in SW Calgary:

Tues 9th - Fri 12th January 2018
13-14th Jan - OFF
Mon 15th - Fri 19th January 2018

As indicated, this is an 8 day training, so it's not an 'either...or'. Attendance on all of the 8 days listed directly above are compulsory for the attainment of this certification and accompanying knowledge and skills.

Each day is a full training day, 10am-6pm plus homework.
There will be an hour-long meal break at around half-way through the day, plus at least two short ten minute breaks.

The break times will be approximately the same time each day, but please note that they will be determined by the instructor, by when it seems to her to be a good time to break, based on the work in progress. We won't for example, interrupt an important discussion, hypnosis session, or NLP exercise, because the clock's just struck 1pm, and we broke for lunch at 1pm the day before!

Congruent with the course content, we will be flexible, and focused on the training outcomes we desire

Location: All NLP and Hypnosis training takes place in south-west Calgary (Chinook Mall area), unless specifically indicated otherwise.
