This Module of study is a big one. We learn more about hypnotic phenomena and how we can use and utilise these normal human experiences; we dive into pain management - physical, emotional and mental (and even maybe existential...); and we give good attention to ideodynamics and how our history is encoded within our body.
Along with further developing your skills as a hypnotist, this Module and the assessment items that go with it is where we ask you to dig into your own psyche as a therapist. We ask you to examine your own maps, filters and motivations, and consider how who you are will influence how you work with people.

David Kennedy ran hypnotherapy practices in Queensland and New South Wales for over 30 years. After undergoing training in "traditional" hypnosis he became aware that he had been using hypnotic techniques with the people who had been coming to him for help in his role as community counsellor, and he embarked on a journey of dedicated self-study in order to become the best helper he could be for his clients.
David's original hypnosis training was revolutionised when he came in contact with the teaching of the American Psychiatrist, Dr Milton Erickson. Through extensive reading of the collected works of the best practitioners and pioneers in the field of hypnosis, his client base grew along with his knowledge. Until his retirement David had a seemingly tireless dedication to clinical practice, sometimes seeing 7 or 8 clients a day. This intensive experience helped him establish an enduring belief in the power we each have available to us, and hypnotherapy's ability to help heal and resolve even the most complex issues and habits of mind.
At the heart of David's teaching of clinical hypnosis is the concept of Love - for others, and for self. To approach each person with love is the basis upon which all work must rest.
David's contributions to the profession were acknowledged with the award of Life Membership of the Australian Hypnotherapists' Association in 2007.
Today, the custodian of David's work is his daughter Rachel Kennedy. Rachel runs a hypnotherapy practice in Brisbane with her husband, hypnotherapist Glenn Chandler of Brisbane Hypnosis Centre.
Rachel has begun the task of re-imagining David's Clinical Hypnosis Training Course for the modern age. Although not practicing as an hypnotherapist herself, she has studied hypnotherapy her entire adult life, and has worked in one hypnosis practice or another for over 25 years.
An Associate member of the Australian Hypnotherapists' Association, Rachel is also the coordinator of Of Like Mind, a collaborative community for Wellness Practitioners she formed with hypnotherapist, author and mental health social worker Katina Gleeson.
