The Best Practices of Dave Elman 2 Day Training

with Larry & Cheryl Elman

13/14th 2020

Sorry you missed it

Live, Interactive, online Training, directly with Larry & Cheryl Elman

I couldn't have been more honoured to be asked to host Larry & Cheryl Elman on their final training tour of the UK. However the global chaos caused by Corono Virus has mean that the safe and sensible option has been to postpone their UK tour, and offer a new and innovative training directly to trainees from the comfort of their own home.

So here is your chance to undertake 2 days training with Larry and Cheryl, whilst connecting and practising and connecting directly with colleagues from around the World.

Utilising Zoom, its virtual breakout rooms, and Cheryl's technical skill, we are able to ensure that their training can reach you in your own home, helping to ensure that they and you remain safe from the impacts of coronovirus, whilst developing your skills.

Most modern day Hypnotherapists and hypnotists have studied the work of Dave Elman, indeed it is said that you are either an Elman or an Ericksonian hypnotist as Elman's work not only re-popularised hypnosis, but defined a style of working that is used Worldwide. 

Still running the Dave Elman institute today is Larry Elman (Dave's son) and his wife Cheryl.

Now 81 Larry is a hugely experienced hypnotist and trainer and along with Cheryl is taking the opportunity to bring their unique experience and style of training to the UK for one last time.


Who is Dave Elman?

Before the days of easy access to training in hypnosis, many hypnotists learned their craft by reading the big green book 'Hypnotherapy'.

Elman's early career included being a Vaudeville performer, billed as 'The youngest and fastest hypnotist' yet he went on to travel the USA training Doctor's and dentists in using hypnosis during treatment and procedures. During a time that hypnosis had lost a great deal of favour with the public, Elman managed to reintroduce it's use, going on to make it more popular and more widely used than ever before.

The famous Elman inductions are rapid and effective, yet despite the showmanship that they relied on, the therapy and understanding of what could be achieved in a hypnotic state was well understood and respected as a result of Elman's work.

What will you learn during the 2 days certified training?

Larry and Cheryl Elman create an energetic and dynamic duo, making this course fun and informative. Larry brings depth and understanding to his father’s methodology. He graduated his father’s trainings multiple times, experiencing the evolution and progression of his fathers teaching and brings this bang up to date in a modern context.
