Clinical Hypnosis Training in Los Cabos – Beach Retreat


Category: Tags: ,


Beach Retreat Training – Los Cabos, Mexico

March 9th – 16th, 2019

Through Daybreak’s unique clinical hypnosis training programs, you will develop greater insight, confidence and skill as a Clinical Counselling Hypnotherapist (C.Hyp™).  This year, we are offering TWO programs at this one extraordinary location:

Clinical Counselling Hypnotherapy certification program


Refresher Intensive program

Both programs provide an opportunity for you to roll up your sleeves and delve deeply into the role of the unconscious in psychotherapy.

Meet Us At Beautiful Los Cabos

Enjoy a sacred time and space for creative transformation, as you experience:

  • The combination of a Professional Development event and restful retreat
  • A gorgeous ocean-side venue with miles of beautiful white sand beach
  • Collegial meals and networking time with fellow therapists — share ideas while being inspired by the breathtaking sunset views
  • Formal hypnosis training time interspersed with plenty of free time for your leisurely exploration of the Los Cabos area

About Clinical Counselling Hypnotherapy Certification – FOUNDATIONAL

(Scroll down if you already have Foundational certification, and are interested in our Refresher Intensive).

Join an international network of mind-body-spirit practitioners trained in integrative psychotherapy. Upon completion of this foundational training program, you will have everything you need to bring the art and practice of hypnotherapy into the transformational work you do with clients and patients.

You will learn how to:

  • Integrate classical and clinical approaches to hypnosis in your medical or counselling practice
  • Incorporate Ericksonian and holistic trance methodology into Psychotherapy, motivational counselling and/or patient advising
  • Combine hypnosis with the interventions you are using now, such as: CBT, mindfulness and solution-focused brief interventions
  • Effectively utilize trance-work for body-oriented psychotherapy approaches, especially in the context of trauma processing and recovery
  • Assist clients in accessing their own “inner therapist” resources through a range of trauma-informed trance based techniques including: age regression, core belief work and Ego State / parts therapy
  • Apply hypnotic protocols for anxiety, panic and OCD
  • Offer clients and patients hypnosis-informed programming for pain management
  • Blend hypnosis with integrative healing for habit reversal, weight loss and addiction
  • Integrate energy medicine with evidence-based approaches to mental health treatment

  • Lifetime access to “Advanced Clinical Hypnosis” – online professional training series
  • Start-up Kit complete with audio and video resources, forms, and marketing information
  • Listing on Daybreak directory of Clinical Counselling Hypnotherapists
  • Daybreak hypnosis training materials including: case studies and programming guidelines
  • Access to a 1-800 number for clinical consultation and ongoing support

About Our Refresher Intensive

If you already have foundational training in Clinical Counselling Hypnotherapy, Our Refresher Intensive program is perfect for you!  You’ll enjoy sitting in on “refresher” classes while also being part of a practical immersion group of students who already have the basics, and are giving themselves the gift of more practice time.  You’ll be practicing off-script and in small groups, writing your own inductions and developing customized programs. Your instructor will help you build up the confidence you need through in-depth case reviews and an analysis of hypnotic strategies you’re using now.  You’ll be feeling super-charged in your skill development and beaming with confidence faster than you can say Cabo San Lucas (alright, maybe not THAT fast, but pretty quickly).

What Makes This Hypnosis Training Unique

(besides the groovy beach location)

Clinical Focus

This training is highly specialized in the integration of clinical hypnotherapy into holistic counselling, mental health and psychotherapy. The program is exclusive to trained and regulated (or registered) mental health and counselling professionals. In this way, you are guaranteed to be training with peer colleagues in a small and dynamic, interactive group setting.  A maximum of 20 students are admitted.

The programming is unique in its blending of both classical and clinical styles of hypnosis, giving you a truly comprehensive knowledge base and solid foundation from which to draw upon in your work with diverse groups of clients.

Intensive and Experiential Approach

This course is experiential and practice-based. You won’t be wasting any time listening to boring lectures – it’s assumed you already did enough of that in your university training. Now, you’ll be asked to “hit the ground running” on incorporating hypnotherapy into the clinical work you already have training in and know exactly how to do!

Your Program Itinerary will include a great mix of intensive training and “down time” each day to rest on a hammock, take in a spa service on the beach,  or explore the local area.  We allot one full retreat day as an optional group activity. Many attendees book their class-free day as a special excursion.  Special excursions can be arranged for an additional charge.

The Schedule

Day 1: Arrival Day: March 9th, 2019 (check-in day)

Days 2 – 6: Class-room content days (5 day training program, with 3-4 hour daily blocks of relaxation time)

Day 7: Retreat day (no class) / Optional group excursion

Days 8: Departure Day: March 16th, 2019

Training Venue and Hotel Booking Info

This year’s retreat program is being held at the very popular, 4.5 rated star resort, Holiday Inn Los Cabos. We chose this all inclusive ocean-front venue for its convenient and wonderful location — it is nestled between the white sandy beaches of San José Del Cabo and the Sierra de San Lázaro Mountains. You will be only a 10-15 minute drive from the San Jose Del Cabo airport, and only a 25 minute drive from the very popular tourist town of Cabo San Lucas.

Los Cabos is a wonderful getaway area known not only as a celebrity hot-spot and sought after “A-list destination” but also as a mecca for natural beauty.  We appreciate the incredible biodiversity that can be found all around.  You’ll find yourself on a beach, surrounded by nearby desert, majestic mountain ranges, and the stunning Sea of Cortez.

Closest Airport: San Jose Del Cabo

If you are wanting to reserve a room at our training venue, we recommend that you BOOK EARLY, since this is a high demand resort which will sell out, as we are meeting in the “high season.”
