Posted by David Hartman  Dec 22, 2016 9:30:00 AM

Ever wondered what Jung thought about hypnotherapy?

Carl Jung’s work has played a significant role in the development of depth psychology and transformational psychotherapy, including hypnotherapy. Over time, his work, in addition to that of other well-known psychologists from all over the world, forms the basis for the Wellness Institute’s Heart- Centered Hypnotherapy curriculum.

In our members-only journal, we covered Jung and Hypnotherapy. Today, you get those articles for free! We've packaged all six articles into one easy-to-read eBook

We hope you find his contributions to the field of transpersonal therapy and hypnotherapy enlightening.

How to Keep Your Practice Successful and Active During the Holidays...Even When Clients Want to Cancel Sessions

Posted by David Hartman  Dec 9, 2015 9:00:00 AM

Are you among the many therapists who just expect your practice to decline over the holidays? Many therapists naturally expect cancellations during certain times of the year (Christmas, Valentines Day, Easter, Summer, etc.) and now just begin to plan for that! They try to normalize this with trite phrases such as, “Oh this is just what happens at this time of the year” or “Many other therapists find their practices slowing down during this time of the year.” That does not have to be the case. In fact we may be contributing to this by expecting it and not offering something different.

Are you aware that over Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years, stress, domestic violence, and depression increase?  So logically, as therapists we should know that these are the most important times to be available for our clients. Instead of just expecting and planning for cancellations, let’s look at ways to turn this around in these critical times.

Posted by David Hartman  May 1, 2015 9:00:00 AM

The vast majority of people go through life mostly unconscious or unaware. Due to this pervasive unconsciousness, most of us are not aware of our Soul’s journey to this earth, not aware of our actual conception experience, and very unaware of our time in our mother’s womb and how those womb experiences are affecting us now.
