Are You Struggling to Get Clients to Move Past What’s Blocking Them?

Join Me October 19th-21st, at EQ Profile Certification and Discover How to Unlock Unconscious Patterns to Go Deeper Faster with Clients!

Have you been dreaming of deepening your clients learning, so you can unlock their unconscious patterns, and unblock the path to them reaching their desired outcomes?

... Yet, despite your best intentions, going deeper with them is always just out of reach?

Does it seem like, no matter HOW many sessions you have with a client, what you discuss, the action plans you create, or questions you ask, you still can’t seem to figure it out, and now you’re just about to give up?

It's one of the most frustrating things we can encounter as professionals, and every time it happens we end up doubting how much we're truly able to help our clients.

To be honest, you’re not alone.

The truth is, learning how to go deeper faster, whether with individuals or groups, is pretty much impossible to do without the proper tools. You're frustrated with your clients, angry at yourself, and your sessions aren't nearly as productive as you'd like them to be. There’s just so MUCH you need to understand.

Believe me, I know! Not that long ago, I faced the same situation you are in now: dreaming of digging beneath the surface and having the ability to unlock my client’s unconscious patterns but stuck at square one...

But now you can easily learn how to help your clients move towards their desired future state. Instead of struggling to get them past what's blocking them, you can discover their hidden patterns and help them reach their goals much faster.

During EQ Profile Certification training, you’ll experience in real time what the EQ Profile measures, what the EQ Profile is revealing about us, why it is so important, and how you can strategically use the Profile to go deeper, faster with your clients.

The EQ Profile Certification training is so much more the 2 days of training. Following our 2-days of in-depth, collaborative learning, we will have 5 virtual training calls, to help you develop and refine your EQ Profile debriefing skills. During the entire process, our team will guide and support you through the certification process, as you learn to use EQ profile in your own practice.

Become an EQ Certified Practitioner and learn how to move your clients past their frustrations and help them achieve their full potential.
