Due to the COVID-19 situation, we are offering this popular live training online via Zoom video to healthcare practitioners using hypnotherapy, and students of hypnotherapy. You MUST be a member of a recognised hypnotherapy association in your country to be eligible to take part  in this training. 

Some of the media outlets Tracie has been featured in:

Are you prepared to handle cases of addiction ranging from heroin to alcohol and get results fast?  

Most therapy trainings focus on long-term therapy for addicts in the hope their clients will kick their addiction habit but this does not serve the client.  

There is a whole industry built up around long-term extended addiction substance abuse withdrawal but this often does not serve the client.  

Are you confident to help clients who come through the door of your therapy practice with any kind of substance abuse?  

Most hypnotherapists see substance abusers as the scary end of their clinical abilities and have no experience in dealing with addicts.  

Helping clients withdraw from life-threatening and destructive substance abuse addiction fast can be one of the most rewarding experiences for a therapist.  

Do you want to have the level of skills that enable you to instantly interrupt your clients’ addictive behaviours?  

When you help clients overcome substance abuse it totally changes their lives and frees them from the imprisonment of their addiction, which may, in some cases, have lasted decades.  

If you want to learn how to handle all substance abuse addictions with hypnotherapy then join me in my:  


Come together online with other hypnosis practitioners and therapists to enhance your skills and techniques in the treatment of drugs and alcohol addiction.

 “I’ve spent all of my whole life around addiction. My father was an alcoholic so I became deeply interested in addiction at an early age. I’ve spent 50 years being involved with helping people who fell into addiction. Thousands of people with addictions have gone through my clinics over the years and have recovered fast and permanently. These addictions include heroin, amphetamines, hallucinogenics, marijuana, ice, cocaine, alcohol and prescription drugs. Through seeing this amount of clients and gaining vast experience, I developed my 6 Step Stop Addiction Hypnotic Method for hypnotherapists that allows addicts to stop their addictions in the first session.”  

- Dr Tracie O'Keefe DCH, BHSc, ND Clinical Hypnotherapist & Naturopath
