Michael Monien - Germany

My name is Michael Monien. I am a very experienced manager who  worked in various international companies in the telecommunications and IT industry throughout the past decades.

I experienced my life with ups and downs so far. Self-hypnosis helped me a lot. I use it in all kinds of situations. Not only in threatening moments, but also in quite pleasant moments, e.g. when I’m on the plane to go on vacation. As the perception of time is different, it literally flies by.

Hypnosis fascinated me so much that I studied hypnotherapy to help other people. I started with simple hypnosis training in Germany and soon realized that the English-speaking area provides much better training opportunities. Unlike Germany, there are universities specifically for learning hypnotherapy.

Finally, I studied at various institutes with the highest quality and the most innovative training methods. My education focused on childhood and adult therapy in general and the opportunity to educate. Certain topics such as immune disorders, ADD / ADHD and dementia are very important to me as they spread and increase more and more.
