Philosophy and Comments        

HCH sets the world standards for teaching clinical and transpersonal, client-empowered, non-hierarchical. forms of healing. The HCH healing approaches honor that all healing comes from within. The hypnotherapy, Energy Therapy and Coaching techniques all directly engage the client's inner wisdom as a co-therapist in the process of healing . We teach and model that being present witht the client and staying out of the client's way is the key to the magic and grace of healing and transformation. Our classes are taught on site at HCH in our beautiful and retreat-like setting surrounded by oak trees and hills providing a nurturing and supportive environment for classroom learning and practiice sessions. Class sizes are small enough to ensure personal supervision and written feedback by the instructors of diad practice sessions . Come to HCH and experience the highest quality of learning while you grow personally and transform your professional life.
