At the ASHLAND SCHOOL OF HYPNOTHERAPY, we respect the fact that many people would like an education in hypnotherapy, but are unable to devote the hours and expense to an on-site course. We also realize that when a student sits in a class for hours each day, they may not have sufficient time to integrate and practice what they are learning.

2018 marks an important point for the ASHLAND SCHOOL OF HYPNOTHERAPY.  This year, we’re going online with shorter classes and a focus on providing opportunities for in-depth learning and CEUs.  I hope you’ll join us!

Therefore,  for 2018, we have developed 3 new on-line video-conference learning courses.

This winter, ASHLAND SCHOOL OF HYPNOTHERAPY is offering two online evening seminars that offer 3 CEUs each.  The topics are chosen for their value in transformation, their current demand, and their ease of incorporation into your practice.  We’re also offering an 8 week course in Mindful Self-Compassion that offers 24 CEUs.

We continue to offer individual and group supervision through videoconferencing, so that you can participate wherever you are.

Would you like to:

  • Earn CEUs from your own home?
  • Receive an introduction to some interesting topics that will enhance your practice?
  • Build your knowledge of hypnotherapy in a dynamic and supportive group?

Mindfulness is currently  as the forefront of medicine and psychology. Many people have heard of it and are interested in its benefits, including:

  • Decreased stress and psychological distress.
  • Enhanced mental health and functioning.
  • Increased emotion well-being and self-control, including lower anxiety and depression.
  • Enhanced ability to cope with pain and illness.
  • Increased capacity for learning and memory.

I’ve always felt that the kind of hypnotherapy that we practice shares a common ancestry with mindfulness.  Both are based in settling into a deeper, quieter inner state, from which we can resolve our problems, transform, and live more fully and peacefully.


Hypnotherapy supports people in becoming more mindful by guiding them into that deeper, quieter state that they have trouble reaching through the usual meditative practices.


In this live video seminar, you’ll learn how to incorporate qualities of mindfulness into your practice.  You’ll learn specific inductions, as well as foundational concepts for helping clients develop the mindful qualities of presence, calm and equanimity.

Resilience is the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, such as family and relationship difficulties, health problems or workplace and financial stressors. It means “bouncing back” from difficult experiences, able to grow, learn, and even flourish with life’s challenges.


Like mindfulness, resilience is a word that has currently captured the public’s interest.  In this seminar, you’ll learn more about resilience, and ways that you can use hypnotherapy to enhance your clients’ capacity to respond well to their lives’ challenges, using them as opportunities for growth and transformation.

When working with clients, most likely you’ve already noticed that the inner critic keeps people from being able to perceive their own basic goodness and value, and that transforming with this self-critical voice is a vital part of healing.


Self-compassion teaches the capacity to meet our experiences mindfully, softening around difficult moments, and bringing a wise and caring response.  It is based in sensing and deeply knowing our inherent goodness.


Self-compassion involves responding in the same supportive and understanding

way you would with a good friend when you have a difficult time, fail, or notice something you don’t like about yourself.


  • Awaken kindness and compassion towards yourself.
  • Learn ways to self-sooth in difficult moments.
  • Cultivate a quiet, clear mind.
  • Reduce shame and self-criticism.
  • Discover how you can motivate yourself most effectively through self-compassion.


Self-compassion is the foundation for self-care, confidence, and the ability to address trauma, anxiety, depression, illness and pain. It is more associated with well-being than any other single factor.


Research shows that people who develop self-compassion have less depression and anxiety. Self-compassion can assist in changing habitis and patterns, and in making life-supportive choices. Self-compassion is at the heart of mindfulness practice, and of a life filled with well being.


Studies have shown that:

  • For veterans, their level of self compassion is more highly related to whether they get PTSD than their level of combat exposure.
  • It’s the single most important predictor of how people cope with divorce.
  • Self-compassion reduces back pain.
  • Self-compassionate caregivers suffer less burnout and empathy fatigue.


Please join me in the most transformative practice I’ve experienced in many years of professional and personal exploration.
