You must complete the free foundation course before starting the advanced foundation course

The aim of this intensive course is to build upon the sound introduction provided in the Foundation Course. In this Basic Practitioner Course, the focus is on mastering primarily three skills:
First is an extensive solution-focused coaching interview to help you understand the clients' current situation, desired outcome, a detailed plan of action and all the hindrances that prevent the client from being able to achieve the desired outcome.
Second is the skill to induce deep hypnotic states in any willing client and
Third is the skill to use hypnotic states to overcome the hindrances that were stopping the clients from working towards and achieving their desired outcome.

In this pre classroom online module:

You will be building on the topics that were covered in the foundation course. You will enhance your understanding of the working of the mind and human behaviour both from the point of view of hypnosis and NLP.
You will learn about the breakdown cycle and the different ways to break the breakdown cycle.
The building blocks of NLP, popularly known as NLP presuppositions is another important topic that we will explore extensively in the online module.
From the point of view of coaching, you will learn about the pre-coaching interview and different coaching models that can be used with clients for setting the session goals.

    Essential life skill course


    Founders of the course have not only mastered the art and science of cognitive hypnotherapy and NLP, but also have in depth of various similar forms of therapy. Foundation course can be a great self help work shop, on its own, for individuals seeking change in their personal or professional life. All the very best to Team ICHARS

    Awesome learning experience


    The online module is an awesome exploration of a learning experience, which mostly digs out the existing knowledge and deduces higher meaning out of the same. This also gave me a different outlook or dimensions of the simple reality and perceptions, we are collectively used to. A perfect blend of the balanced knowledge and experience of the mind and body, perception and reality, emotions and reasons, map and territory and all the more NLP and hypnosis…!
