Advanced Hypnosis Workshop by Devin Hastings – 3 Certifications

Powerful, life changing information you can’t get anywhere else!


 Do you want to learn superior hypnosis techniques to increase your client success rate? 


 Have you ever wished you could remember a lot more of the hypnosis methods you have learned so far?  Do you think you could improve your income by offering real-life memory improvement training for clients and groups?


 Wouldn’t an effective, step-by-step process to greater happiness be really helpful for your clients?  Do you suppose really happy clients would be more inclined to send you clients?  (Zero marketing costs there)


 Would you use a technique to start healing your client from the minute they contact you?  This method was developed by your instructor and this certification includes a technique that no one has seen before.  Also, this training improves your ability to help people heal from deep wounds that other techniques can’t touch.


 "Instant Attraction Techniques" - Doesn't that sound attractive?  Dan Ingle will be sharing a few little known but very powerful methods that you can use to help your shy clients find the person of their dreams.


Now I could give you the old line of: “If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you must say yes to improving your life, your income, blah, blah, blah…” but that cheap, manipulative stuff simply doesn’t get to the real point. 


The real point is found on your personal radio station W I I F M – What’s In It For Me?  What do you feel you really can get from this workshop?  How can your clients benefit?  What does that feeling look like?  Can you use this information immediately to generate more income? 


Well, before you decide one way or the other, do keep in mind that this workshop contains powerful persuasion and healing information that that has never been revealed by your instructors.    Because of this, attendees must sign a non-disclosure agreement stating that they will use what they learn only for helping their clients to heal. 


Also keep in mind that the certifications you are receiving are:


Certified Practitioner of Advanced Hypnosis Techniques

7 Steps To Happiness Certification Training

Inner H.E.A.L.R. ™ Certification Training


You can learn much more by clicking here and following are the dates and prices:


Workshop dates are Sat/Sun, June 4/5


Early bird tuition is $295.00 until May 4th. 

Late morning early bird is $345 until May 14th

Late sleeper tuition is $395.00. 


People who don’t show up at all will pay far more in lost clients and healing opportunities.  Okay, just kidding…sort of.  

I can count hundreds of times I have used at least one technique from a workshop I attended that made a significant, positive difference during a client or group session.

Emergency Hypnosis:

Learn How To Successfully P.A.N.I.C.TM In Any Emergency Situation!

Avoid the pain of saying "If only I had been able to do something!" There is no cure for regret. There is only the endless replaying of what could have been but wasn’t. Many people will freeze and perhaps make a fatal error in an emergency event simply because they have been unconsciously convinced (hypnotized) into thinking they have no abilities when it comes to an urgent situation.

The bottom line is that these skills are not just a good idea. They are a necessity. The greatest wealth is health.

So why not increase your skills by being prepared?   In today’s world, the likelihood of being confronted with an emergency situation is much greater and so is your need for a trained, life-saving response.

BONUS BENEFIT:  This class will also give you an excellent marketing advantage!  In class you will be shown a no-cost way to ethically promote yourself while greatly helping others!

OCD and Anxiety Disorders Specialist Certification
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), a severe anxiety disorder, is a hidden epidemic that affects the lives of millions of people. Often, the shame and pain of OCD goes so deep that it can take a person with OCD seven years to seek treatment.  Once a person has found treatment, they are often disappointed and left more confused and wounded because traditional treatements typically address the symptoms of OCD rather than the cause.
Anxiety Disorders rule and ruin the lives of millions of people as well and can often lead to OCD.  Furthermore, anxiety disorders often cause spin-off problems such as alcoholism, depression, poor work performance, poor relationships, low-income and very low self-esteem.  The list of miseries and problems caused by anxiety disorders is extensive and heart-breaking for those who suffer from them.  Imagine how many problems a person has that will gently vanish as you help them to overcome their anxiety.
Hypnotists and other health care workers often fail because they are sabotaged by their clients anxiety disorder(s) (including OCD) which many times are not apparent. 
Working with OCD and anxiety disorders in general, is a delicate and multi-level process that requires sensitivity, intuition and the right training. 
Your new certification is giving you what you need.  You are receiving specific and unique training on how to discover and ameliorate your client's hidden saboteur.  You are also learning about the wide variety of anxiety disorders so that you can recognize and work with each one so that your client is freed to pursue a life they could only dream of having.
Please note that the class material is not designed to replace responsible, traditional medical care.  You are being trained to work in a complementary, helpful manner with your client's existing health care team.  Also be aware that your work will very likely give your client the most valuable thing they need: realistic hope for recovery. 
This is a life-changing workshop that will move you in so many ways to new levels. 
In two days your life will change in so many incredible ways.  
Warm Regards,
Devin Hastings

Student Testimonial About The Workshop


By Louise Carter

Being a student of the Royal Berkshire College of Clinical Hypnosis (RBCCH) and half way through my studies, I recently attended my first APHP seminar.

I found the experience so professional and worthwhile that I feel compelled to tell all other fellow students about it. C. Devin Hastings presented the seminar, on the subject of ‘Emergency Hypnosis’ and ‘OCD and Anxiety Disorders’.

Seven fellow students also decided that this seminar was of interest to them and attended along with our course principles.

Also attending the APHP seminar was a mix of other students from all over the country, and experienced, practicing hypnotherapists wishing to add to their skill set.

Incidentally mixing with these people during the refreshment breaks was an added benefit as I was able to learn how different individuals had gone about setting up their own successful businesses and also how other students were finding their studies.

As soon as Devin began the seminar you were drawn in by his charisma and abundant jokes (too many for me to remember or write down!) For the first ten minutes I was smiling so much that my cheeks hurt.

He held everyone’s attention right from the start, engaging everyone with frequent eye contact, as he moved around at the front of the room, and up and down the aisle. Devin made ‘Emergency Hypnosis’ and ‘OCD and Anxiety’, interesting and understandable for both the experienced, and new comers like myself.

He presented the information in such a way that your interest was held and the details stuck firmly in your mind.

The seminar was spread over two days allowing plenty of time to cover these subjects and also for Devin to do some therapy work, demonstrating different inductions and styles. I found these especially interesting to witness.

To accompany the seminar Devin produced a very detailed set of course notes which he had put together, covering everything we had been taught. Now as I read them I can imagine him saying it out loud to me, and feel the information cement firmly in my mind.

Since the seminar I have frequently used many things that I learnt that weekend on my practice clients as I train. I have been able to alleviate a client’s fear of flying, by simply explaining about the effects of anxiety, which were extensively explained on the course, and how it effects the body.

This helped the client to understand ‘how’ and ‘why’ they were feeling a certain way, and by understanding this, made the problem seem less frightening to them. The suggestion therapy that followed was then just the ‘icing on the cake’, and they have since flown successfully.

Devin also taught many different ways of questioning clients and helping them to lower their own anxiety levels through visualisation.

Once again I have used these techniques to great success. As far as the ‘Emergency Hypnosis’ part of the course, I hope never to be in a emergency situation, but feel fully equipped if that ever happens and fully confident, thanks to Devin, that I can help to make the outcome a more positive one.

I feel that the weekend will prove to be of immense use to me as I go into professional practice and I would advise everyone to take the opportunity to attend future seminars as I found this one to be invaluable, and I for one, plan to be at many more.

Ultra- Learning Skills with Hypnosis: Turbo-Charge Your Learning Abilities

This is not your usual advanced learning ability seminar. This unique class goes beyond the mind-mapping and "Mega" memory stuff that a lot of people buy and never use.

In this fun and very informative seminar you will discover how to quickly absorb educational information that will help you or your client to be able to work smarter instead of harder. And, you will also learn a simple but highly effective way to recall information.

Plus, there is a skill that is rarely talked about but is so necessary for truly effective learning and recall abilities--Information Integration.

This process is a person’s (usually underdeveloped) ability to weave together related and unrelated pieces of information to produce unique insights and ideas. And, hypnotically enhanced information integration also greatly heightens a person's learning ability.

Given today's world, it is more important than ever to avoid being overwhelmed and to be able to absorb and recall more and more information everyday. This class will show how anyone can dramatically improve their learning abilities.


* Quickly acquire methods and tools to more easily absorb information.

* Enjoy pushing past previous learning barriers.

* Increase your income by teaching your clients new strategies to change their lives.

* Learn other methods that have been proven to boost brain function.

* Acquire new skills that will change your life.

Some more information:

Devin has used advanced learning methods in many areas of his life. In 1994 Devin had to learn and then teach to other students, the anatomy and physiology portion (220 hours) of his massage certification class. Devin also took a highly accelerated 1-week real estate licensure class and passed the state exam on the first try despite the 75% first-time failure rate.

As a small business person who must manage every aspect of a business, it is imperative that the hypnotist be able to learn and implement new technology skills very quickly. And, in order to be the best in your profession it is critical that your education never ends.

Creating Your Inner H.E.A.L.R. ™ --How To Use Nature’s Invisible Forces To Change Your Client and Protect Yourself From Their Emotional Lightning Storm.


Even if you think you know this material, you don’t until you have experienced it for yourself through training and experience. 


This is an advanced method because it greatly facilitates and enhances your ability to help clients to change for the better – often while you do. 


Having an Inner H.E.A.L.R. is an invaluable tool for any hypnotist for 2 reasons:

(1) It gives you extra power to help your client because you are directing their injured emotional energy to a deep place of healing and transformation.  This rejuvenated life force can then be focused back to your client.


(2) It helps you to remain as effective as possible by keeping your aura and psyche free of draining energy.


Also, your Inner H.E.A.L.R. is a unique and crucial tool because you can use it to deflect the damaging psychic impact of a client’s story and energy thereby protecting you from Compassion Fatigue (a.k.a. Secondary PTSD).


2:45 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.



4:00 p.m. – 4:10 p.m.
