Heartsong Hypnotherapy Center
This Center is an outreach for mental and spiritual growth in the area of Behavioral Therapy. Classes, seminars, conferences, and weekend instruction in subjects dealing with self-realization for the lay person and techniques to enhance the skills of the therapist are all taught here. Experts in many fields of alternative and complimentary medicine come here to lecture and present new as well as ancient modalities of healing and empowerment for physical and mental health, spiritual stability, and self-improvement.
Although Hypnosis is the primary focus of the career training at Heartsong, the gatherings and workshops are open to everyone, even those who know little or nothing about hypnosis. Every workshop, seminar, and class is taught with joy and humor and a lightness of spirit which encourages those attending to quickly feel at home.
Early in our adulthood, each of us makes decisions as to how we will live our lives and how much we will adjust to accommodate the needs of those close to us. When the reward for this behavior is no longer healthy, we seek new skills for making our lives work. Hypnosis is the only tool which can be used as successfully alone as with a therapist. Self-hypnosis can change your life as quickly as you allow it to. Imagine a gift greater than the ability to take charge of your life, your obsessions, addictions, mental ills, reactions to others, desires to be martyrs, insomnia, habitual behaviors, overeating, relationship fears, shyness, inappropriate sexual behavior, fears of failure and success….. and the list goes on. Actually, the list never ends. If there is a human condition which needs to be healed, hypnosis gives us the power to make that change and make it now. Hypnosis is personal-empowerment far greater than any other path.
After maintaining a clinical practice in hypnosis and hypnotherapy since l986, Bette Epstein founded Heartsong Hypnotherapy Training Center in 1990, as an adult career school. The course material was approved by the Texas Education Agency and the Texas Rehabilitation Commission at that time.
The American Council of Hypnotist Examiners approves the course work and Ms. Epstein is an examiner for this organization. A.C.H.E. is the only fraternal organization of hypnotists that requires a minimum of hours and a test for admission. Upon completion of this 500 hour course and an extensive test for Heartsong Certification, students are eligible for testing for A.C.H.E. membership.
Once a student has completed the training course, and all fees are paid, she or he may repeat the entire course for as long as the school exists. Surprisingly, Bette didn’t expect the students to return as often as they do. In the classroom the spirit of fellowship and unconditional love is so supportive that we often have a visitor each day. The center offers a residence program for out of town students when classes are in session for a minimal fee.
Heartsong is a shoe-free, vegetarian, humor-filled place to be. Removing the shoes is not a religious edict, but personal choice by Bette. “Removing the shoes reminds those attending that they have just entered a special space where we are all equal”.
