SANATOGA PA – A Sanatoga professional who is a member of the National Guild of Hypnotists says her recent participation in an annual meeting dedicated to her work allowed her “to learn from incredibly skilled and world-renowned instructors.”
“It was an invaluable experience … I look forward to turning this knowledge into practice,” Maggie O’Malley, of the Focus Point Hypnosis Center, 2081 E. High St., said of her attendance last month (August 2012) at the guild’s 25th annual convention in Marlborough, MA.
O’Malley, a guild representative, collected what she described as “many cutting-edge tips and techniques under the instruction of hypnotism professionals from around the world.” During more than 20 convention seminars, she increased her knowledge of traditional hypnotic practices, tapping for effect, conflict resolution, mind–body connections, muscle testing, neuroplasticity, meta-patterning, and client analysis.
Other classes covered one-on-one training and live demonstrations for use in a professional setting, when guiding clients toward achieving change in such areas as breaking habits, overcoming fears, reducing stress, and gaining clarity.
The guild, the largest and oldest organization of its kind, has approximately 12,000 members nationwide and in 73 other countries.
