“The hypnotherapy training in Costa Rica was exceptional and the teachings deeply healing.  The clinical trainings were among the best I have ever

done." (Kali Munro, RSW - Toronto)

"I was so impressed with this Costa Rica training. It was a “game changer” for me. I was inspired to make major changes in my life and business, and will always be

grateful.  The majestic beauty all added to the wonderful experience." (Naureen Shah, Pakistan)

"This training not only inspired me to become a greater social worker but inspired my soul to move forward in directions I never thought were possible."  (Leigh Simpson, MSW)

About The Program

Tamarindo sunset

This mastery intensive is focused on the following major areas:

  • Advanced clinical practice techniques in merging hypnotherapy with CBT;
  • Advanced co-morbid pain management interventions;
  • Inner Child and Ego-State work in trauma-informed practice;
  • In-depth applications of regression and deep mind-body healing.

Each student is asked to bring 3 case studies along with clinical challenge questions.  Our small group immersion experience (maximum 12 students) ensures that complexities faced by C.Hyp™ Practitioners are addressed.  In addition, each student is given ample opportunity to practice interventions in a supervised setting and delve into advanced protocols and practices.  Following the training, individualized clinical mastery homework is given to each student.

The Hotel Tamarindo Diria  is a wonderful getaway that sits along a stretch of white sand beach and is surrounded by lush green mountains and national parks, on the most famous Costa Rican beach: Tamarindo Beach, in the Golden Coast region of Costa Rica.

Closest Airport: Liberia, Costa Rica

Important note: Participants can choose to stay at the Hotel Diria OR any other hotel or condo in the Tamarindo area (our training venue is within walking distance of most hotels, condos and AirBnBs - Tamarindo is a very small town).

If you are wanting to reserve a room at Hotel Diria, we recommend you BOOK EARLY, since this is a very popular resort which is likely to sell out, as we are meeting in the "high season."  Hotel Diria is offering Daybreak retreat participants a 20% discounted rate on our block of hotel rooms.  PLEASE NOTE THAT ONLY 10 ROOMS ARE AVAILABLE IN THE GROUP BLOCK.   These rooms are expected to sell out well before the December 1st registration deadline.
