This course has been converted to online teaching.
Hypno-Oncology – Live Online MasterClass
This Master Class will be presented ‘live’ online to allow interaction and questions. Video demonstrations will be shown. It will be recorded and will remain up for at least a week to allow those on different time frames to view and others to view again. I intend to add some other ‘live’ sessions at different time for further Q&A’s and to assist with those on different time zones. See the event website for more details
