Mentor Michael Ellner is the President of one of the world’s largest not-for-profit Alternative Health Information Networks (HEAL- Health Education AIDS Liaison-NYC).
I am delighted to be part of the Mentors in Hypnosis project and I appreciate the opportunity to introduce you to my associates and my approach to change work.
Quantum Focusing, Mindful Hypnosis and HOPE Coaching are brand names for our utilization of creative trances. Creative trances can be applied with and without conventional inductions. It is designed to tap into a “client’s” physical (somatic), mental (cognitive) and spiritual (relational) fields with the belief that a mind-body-spirit approach to change work is the most effective way to help people reach and maintain their goals. We do not diagnose, analyze or fix our clients.
My interview will give you an idea of how this approach to change work evolved and introduce you to my opinions and beliefs about hypnotically assisting clients. Briefly practitioners of creative change work function as coaches rather than therapists. Their goal is to teach people how to construct and utilize creative resource states and focus their attention in ways that promote health, healing and well being.
