Meet your tutor
Ivan Tyrrell worked for many years as a psychotherapist and now spends most of his time lecturing and writing.
This webinar gives you important information – it explains the positive uses of hypnosis, and what it is, but also informs you about how unscrupulous people can abuse it and how others, often unwittingly, can do harm through a lack of understanding.
The College does not provide therapy for anyone abused by hypnotherapists or hypnotists. We provide training for therapists and other health and welfare professionals, and information for the general public.
For those interested there is more information on hypnosis in the book, The Brain’s Big Bang – The Explosive Origin of Creativity, Mysticism and Mental Illness, written by the founders of the Human Givens Approach to mental health and wellbeing.
Alarming but very helpful. Thank you for making us aware of the dangers, something few teachers seem to understand.O. Dale, San Francisco
