When working with trauma clients, it's easy to get bogged down in stories and the rehashing of day-to-day challenges.

But following these paths, we never get to the core material that needs to be worked through for our clients to heal.

To truly be effective in session, we need to be able to quickly determine what to focus on, where to go, and what needs to happen to create transformational moments.

That's what makes Hakomi so powerful…

It provides a roadmap — one that starts with where the client is at the beginning of each session — and takes therapists through a process of deep listening that goes beyond stories...

... equipping you to track your clients on all levels of experience — words, emotions, body language, and more — so you can quickly and effectively tap into the innate healing that exists within every client.

And now, with this intensive online course, you can learn how to bring this powerful healing method into your own practice.

Join renowned trauma healer and expert Hakomi therapist Manuela Mischke-Reeds as she takes you on an experiential journey to discover how this approach can achieve rapid healing results that your client can access again and again, long beyond the therapy session.

At the completion of this course, you'll have all the skills you need to compassionately engage even the most traumatized clients and guide them confidently through a healing process that is as gentle and comforting as it is transformative.

And when you act now, you can be part of exclusive FREE LIVE Q&A calls with Manuela ($200 value) that are only available for this first launch of the course.
