Transformative Storytelling for Smoking Emancipation
Do you work with people who struggle to quit smoking?
Do you search for the magic bullet smoking cessation technique?
Your smokers come to you with a story about themselves. That story is their identity, and that identity has to change for them to be free from tobacco.
In this class, learn a protocol that combines numerous conventional hypnotic techniques with metaphor and storytelling to help your clients step into new identities as non-smokers.
Rising to the Occasion: Metaphor and Storytelling for Erectile Dysfunction w/ Kaz Riley
Do you get that call from men who aren’t rising to the occasion? Have you noticed they’re not even comfortable telling you what’s wrong?

In this class, the storytelling guy and the sex hypnosis gal will share their insights, their case histories, and their best metaphors to help your clients get the lead back in the pencil.
