Learn to use Self-Hypnosis and NLP for your Personal Development
with Matthew Ferguson

I created this Personal Development course to teach you how to use Self-Hypnosis and NLP to overcome the challenges you face. As an example: stress symptoms, lack of self confidence and anxiety. Tools and techniques that once learnt will be able to help you now and in the future.

You will learn:

  • Principles of NLP
  • Theory and Practice
  • How to overcome your personal challenges
  • How to use Self-Hypnosis and NLP to build confidence and self esteem
  • How to overcome many self limiting beliefs

Discover how to:

  • use your mind's cognitive powers, memory, imagination and spirit to gain clarity of purpose and motivation
  • change emotional states
  • change attitudes and behaviours
  • create the life you want

You will gain a new and deeper understanding of how the mind works through experiencing Hypnosis and NLP and be able to take charge of your life.  Importantly, you will leave with practical tools that help you maintain those changes and allow for further personal development, renewal and growth.

This course is for your personal development. To become a certified and recognised hypnotherapist and NLP practitioner please visit our training page.
