Coaching The Unconscious Mind: Integrative Life Coaching Certification Course

Melissa TiersMelissa Tiers is the founder of The Center for Integrative Hypnosis in New York City. She is an award winning author, lecturer and hypnosis instructor who's coaching program is the first to focus on the adaptive unconscious and it's primary role in change work.

Integrative Life Coaching is a certification program that combines rapid change techniques from all different fields and brings them together for the most comprehensive and transformational change work possible. Traditional life coaching programs focus all the work on the very limited conscious mind, which creates surface structure changes. This is the only program that teaches you to access the adaptive unconscious, where the habituated patterns and limiting beliefs and behaviors come from.

Participants will learn a synthesis of Ericksonian Hypnosis, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Cognitive Behavioral and Energy Psychology as well as processes developed by utilizing the latest research in Neuroscience and Mind/Body medicine. Integrative coaching allows you to make changes to your clients internal strategies for generative and congruent life changes.

Coaching is the fastest growing profession in personal development with many traditional therapists becoming coaches to expand the scope of their practice and clientele. For hypnotists, being a certified coach allows you to help a larger segment of the population and create ongoing relationships to foster growth in all areas of life.

This course offers certification through the International Association of Counselors and Therapists, one of the largest complementary healthcare organizations in the world.

The training consists of four intense days of learning. Ongoing supervision and practice are offered in the form of bi-monthly hands on practice/supervision nights and/or monthly telecoaching supervision.
