Doctor Ph.D. Degree - Psychology

Hypnotherapy via distance learning


This Doctor Ph.D. Degree examines the use of hypnosis to heal, improve health, and reduce pain. The hypnotherapist leads their patients, through a trance and an altered state of consciousness, to the initial conditions surrounding the event, the emotion, and/or the circumstances that triggered their observed distress. The emotional and/or physical pain that was experienced by the patient is relived, assimilated, and healed. Hypnotherapy reframes the memory that caused the observed illness, anxiety, depression, frustration, and other negative emotions. What was previously experienced as a negative state is erased and transformed into an opportunity to enjoy the maximum health potential possible, both physically and mentally.
