Confidence for the Hypnotherapist
This is the CD that hypnotherapists everywhere are talking about. It is the definitive programming for any practitioner who wants to gain total confidence when working with clients, and has been called “the best program of its kind,” It is parahermispherically designed to be processed by both sides of the brain and uses the unique “enveloped saturation process” which helps bypass any conscious pre-filtering to directly access the human change mechanism. It utilizes an underlying sound matrix of binaural beats, digitally processed linear enhancement, reversed speech, and precise multilevel preconscious programming specifically scripted for enhanced absorption.

Designed for total preconscious saturation, the metaphoric journey in the left ear and simultaneous programming in the right ear, build to a climactic, multi-level overload. This is experienced over an underlying sound matrix of a running brook, binaural sound modulation, and digitally processed "reversed speech."
CD - 22 min

More Testimonials:

I recently had the pleasure of studying with Dr. George Bien and I’d like to share a few words about this extraordinary individual. I apologize in advance for my gushing tone but when you eventually meet George you will fully understand where I’m coming from.

As a personal development coach, I began my journey of self-exploration back in 1997. Over the years, I’ve worked with many experts and “gurus” in various fields. Now, even though George came highly recommended, I was a bit skeptical that he would be able to live up to his reputation (I’ve been disappointed one too many times in the past). That being said, after attending three of his workshops, I can say without hesitation that George Bien is at the very top of the pack.

In my humble opinion, what makes a trainer exceptional is not their passion, charisma or mastery of their craft, but the level of transformation they facilitate for their students. And transformation is what George Bien is all about. Ever since my teen years, I’ve had great difficulty speaking in front of a group. Sure I could get by, but my lack of confidence and belief in myself was always apparent. Before the “X-Treme Speaker’s Workshop”, I suffered from (among other things) a lack of certainty, rushed and disjointed delivery, and an inability to fully connect with my audience. After working with George and his equally impressive partner, John Rozsa, I now, for the first time in my life, feel completely at home in front of an audience. I won’t bore you with all the changes I’ve noticed in the months following the two-day seminar but the one that really stuck out was when Bravo Television came to my office to interview me. In the past, I would have been overly anxious, scattered and hyper-conscious of how I was being perceived. But surprisingly, I felt incredibly relaxed and centered, and was able to effortlessly field the tough questions thrown my way. This was HUGE for me and I am forever grateful to George for helping me “step my game up” in this area.

I also took his advanced speaker's class, followed by his “Certified IACT Master Trainer” seminar, where I had the privilege of working with some very successful and savvy hypnotherapists from various parts of the globe, as George guided us all to deeper levels of mastery.

One thing about George is that you’ll never get the sense he is hording information (like some of the other trainers I’ve worked with). George holds nothing back, and instead shares everything he can from his 20+ years of working in the field. When you work closely with someone who is not only brilliant, but who truly desires that you become the absolute best you can be, powerful growth and dynamic transformations are inevitable. The man is undoubtedly a genius, but when you work with him, you walk away feeling like YOU are the genius - partly as a result of his tremendous humility, but mostly because he knows how to bring out the best in you and ensure that you walk away owning your inner power.

Going beyond his masterful skills as a hypnotherapist and trainer, George is also a model for living life in a fully congruent and authentic manner. Everything about him from his choice of words to the way he conducts himself both in and out of the seminar room (including the way he interacts with his beautiful wife Elena) showcases his love for humanity, the genuineness of his character and his burning desire to make a difference in the lives of those around him.

George has not only helped me become a better presenter and a better hypnotist, but has inspired me to become a better human being. When I first met George, I considered him a respected mentor. But once I opened my eyes to everything he stands for, I began seeing him as nothing less than a personal hero. If you choose to work with Dr. George Bien, rest assured you’ll feel the same as I do.

George Bien's "Train the Trainer" Program was the highlight for me 2010. It was such a valuable experience and will change what I am doing in this New Year. This class has totally created an entire new direction for my hypnosis business. After being in the business for almost 8 years I left New York with, not only the skills of a professional trainer, but I learned more skills to add to my tool box. The program was beautifully put together and had many moments of seeing "The Master" at work over the years.

George Bien Sends you home with every teaching tool that you could possibly need so that you do not have to "Recreate the Wheel". Believe me, you will not be sorry that you signed up for this incredibly comprehensive class!

George Bien is absolutely amazing in the bredth and depth of his knowledge, professionalism and ability to educate in a very dynamic and effective manner.

I have been to many professional trainings/ certifications in my career and George Bien's is the GOLD STANDARD! I feel very, very priviledged to have had the opportunity to be educated by a true Master.

I’ve had prior training as an instructor of hypnosis and have been teaching for over 10 years.

After taking George Bien’s “Train-the-Trainer” course, I have been stretched beyond my limits.  George is a dynamic educator and hypnotherapist who engages his students with a genuine interactive method of teaching.  The class was extremely educational and a place of learning in a safe environment, filled with knowledge and fun.

The professional Hypnosis “Train-the-Trainer” certification seminar taught by George Bien is excellent!  Even though I’ve been a professional hypnotherapist and trainer for many years, I learned many new techniques and approaches that helped improve my skills.

I highly recommend this seminar to anyone who wants to teach hypnosis!

Inspiration with a WOW!

—Rev. Barbara Solimon, MCHT, CHT, CSMC, RMT, CMT, Certified IACT Master Trainer

I took the “Train-the-Trainer” course offered by the IACT with instructor George Bien.  I specifically took the course at this time because Dr. Bien was the instructor and my prior training with him was excellent.

The training was dynamic energy, providing an exceptional amount of information and instruction, well-packed and decisive.  Not only is the quality and content of instruction exceptional, the class interaction and participation was on-going and energizing.

Furthermore, Dr. Bien’s commitment to and passion for the profession and the students is immersed in caring, ethics and integrity.  I have been in the field of hypnotherapy for the past 12 years, and I am satisfied that I received the ultimate in quality education in my profession.

—Rev. Gloria Stanchak Alexander, CMT, Certified IACT Master Trainer
West Palm Beach, Florida

I came to this seminar without any expectations at all.  This was because I have always been disappointed with various training programs if I attended them with expectations.  This was however NOT the case with this Train-the-Trainer program, organized under the auspices of IACT, and taught by George Bien.

George came across as a very passionate trainer with full panoply of knowledge within the rubrics of hypnosis and hypnotherapy.  He demonstrated a very keen and heightened sense of responsibility as a paternal instructor.  He responded very well to his students in breath and depth of what he teaches, never patronizing participants at all.

We are leaving the class fully energized and empowered to be Certified Instructors, with the full range of skills imparted by George Bien.

Accruing from the knowledge learned, I fully recommend this training for hypnosis instructors to-be.

—Dr. Casey Chua, MDiv, PhD, CI, BCH, CMT, Certified IACT Master Trainer

Even though I was already a Certified Instructor, Dr. George Bien’s training provided me with many more innovative ways for teaching hypnotherapy. I definitely learned much more than expected, and I promise you that you will also receive much more than expected. Dr. Bien is a powerful trainer.

Thank you Dr. Bien for your teaching.

—Lam Cheuk Man, Clinical Psychologist, Certified IACT Master Trainer

Having taken many hypnosis seminars from both American and UK trainers, and being a trainer myself, I am in a position to make an educated evaluation of both course content and instruction.

I am profoundly impressed by Dr. George Bien’s sincerity, warmth and his passionate dedication to imparting his enormous hypnotic knowledge and training skills to his students.  George will journey with you, leading you gently, yet passionately stretching you towards excellence.  He will not only be your teacher – you will also gain a true friend as well. I have benefited greatly from George’s Train-the-Trainer program.

There aren’t enough superlatives to describe the experience.  You can’t be in better hands!

—John Lee, CMT, Certified IACT Master Trainer
Founder/Former President IACT-IMDHA Malaysia Chapter

As a fulltime professional hypnotherapist since 1980 and a Trainer since 1987 I have been aware of Dr George Bien and have followed his career, awards and growing reputation with interest for many years.

I have had the privilige of training with some of the most highly regarded teachers of our profession, including the masterful Gil Boyne in 1990. I later organized three workshops for Gil in New Zealand. Gil spoke highly of George, and because I strongly believe in continuing to add to my skills and knowledge, I was keen to meet him and attend one of his trainings.

I travelled to Miami from New Zealand "Down Under" and I'm happy to say it was well worth the time and considerable expense. George is an exceptional trainer who shares his vast knowledge of hypnosis, hypnotherapy and various therapy models unreservedly. He has the "hypnotism fever", and his enthusiasm for the "work" is infectious. With his friendly and affable personality George quickly and skilfully endeared himself to a bunch of strangers from various parts of the planet and had us feeling comfortable participating and sharing with each other.

Thanks George for providing a very positive experience.

—Roger Saxelby, CMT, Certified IACT Master Trainer
Aukland, New Zealand

I am really impressed with the presentation of the program. George Bien is one of the best in the world and the best teacher-instructor I ever had in the field of Hypnotherapy.

I highly recommend the 'Train-the-Trainer”' Certification Program with George Bien.

George Bien's experience, humour, knowledge and integrity made for a very entertaining, educational and inspirational seminar. It was also a joy meeting colleagues and making new friends who had travelled from all over the world to train with George.

The curriculum is excellent, and will help me take my training company forward to the next level.

—Darren Marks, CMT, Certified IACT Master Trainer
London, England

The Train-the-Trainer Certification seminar taught me more about the mind in 5 days than university courses taught me in 15 weeks!

George created a concise, yet complete curriculum on teaching hypnosis, which he imparted to us with eloquent humility; not a stone was unturned, not a question unanswered.

—Bridgette Boucher, MS, LMSW, CMT, Certified IACT Master Trainer

Thank you IACT so much for the Train the Trainer class. Having been one of George's students 14 years ago, at the IACT practitioner level, I knew I was in for a great class and tons of invaluable information.

The amount, quality and organization of the course is fantastic! What makes studying with George so powerful for me is the flood of enthusiasm, passion and humor that flows through him as he shares this work. He creates a safe and open environment that allows all of us to explore, practice and play with hypnosis. In addition, George instilled a confidence in me that inspires me to share hypnosis and healing with every seeker who comes my way, both as a trainer and an hypnotherapist.

George, "You are truly a man of Spirit. I am honored to know you and to be you student."

With deepest gratitude,

We often refer to those who love to learn and do it well as a "sponge”'. George Bien is the reciprocal in terms of teaching/instructing.

Throughout the "Train-the-Trainer" program, I was in awe (I continue to remain in this state!) of George’s ability to squeeze the sponge, if you will, to find not a 'drip”'but a flow of knowledge pouring from him. In fact, many times I thought I had gained knowledge sufficient to move forward when he immersed me with more techniques and knowledge to begin my journey.

Words can not express my sincere gratitude for having the opportunity to learn from the best!

—Alesia Simco , MS , CHt, CRC, LMHC, CMT, Certified IACT Master Trainer
Kings Park , New York

All I expected to get from this course was to become a Certified Trainer in Hypnotherapy, which I certainly received. Yet what I also received was an incredible wealth of additional knowledge above and beyond excellent!

The IACT Train-the-Trainer seminar gave me the expertise and confidence to become a great trainer and an even better hypnotherapist.

Thank you so much George!

—Kip Lyon, CMT, Certified IACT Master Trainer

George is an "Edutainer". In many learning environments learning just does not stick however in the Train-the-Trainer seminar with George Bien, I learned and I laughed, which means that what I learned will stay with me.

In so many trainings, to get information, is like pulling teeth from teachers. George however, shares and gives with an open heart and mind. His passion, excitement and love for this work is so obvious and contagious.

The manual is so complete, down to the most minute detail. 'What to say, when to say it, what homework to assign, when to demonstrate, when to have people practice, etc. It is a fool-proof way of making sure that all the needed information is fully covered.

The videos, DVDs and CDs are so clearly designed to help the trainer develop their own confidence about the material so that they can focus on teaching and not on being self-conscious. This is a true gift.

Anyone interested in training others in the science and art of hypnotherapy not only should, but must take this course! It will raise the bar on the quality of hypnotists and hypnotherapists everywhere.

Thanks again George!

I am so grateful to you Dr.George Bien, for the fabulous learning opportunity you have created. On my return home from your hypnosis train the trainer course,

I walked in my gardens and witnessed all the beautiful growth that had taken place in just a week. I realized that I too had grown in so many ways during the same week. I feel a new level of confidence and presence, equipped now with vital information and resources after attending the train the trainer course with you.

If you are looking for a professional hypnosis Train-the-Trainer program, I highly recommend this course. The vast amount of information is a plus, and the interactive style of George Bien is a must, for hypnosis is an interactive healing modality.

George has a direct and focused way of teaching and he comes from the heart as he encourages each student to grow in the area they need most.

After attending this training, I feel completely prepared to offer a professional and complete hypnosis certification program with knowledge and heart.

Thank you Dr. George Bien and IACT!

Sincerely and with Warm Blessings,

"I first trained with George Bien in 2001, and have taken seminars with him in Hypnosis and Presentation skills. I completed the "Train-the-Trainer" Master Trainer, Certification seminar with George in January, 2007.

There is no question in my mind that George Bien is one of the greatest trainers in the world! So many times, whenever I see or hear about world-class hypnotists and/or hypnosis trainers, they always seem to have one thing in common - they were trained by George Bien.

George is an exceptionally caring person who does whatever it takes to bring out the best in each of his students. I feel fortunate to know him."

—Eugene Goldstein, MA, CMT, Certified IACT Hypnosis Master Trainer

George Bien and I have to tell you that I’m really impressed! Out of all the hypnosis trainers I’ve been taught by (and there’s many) George Bien is by far the best!

George Bien is the most patient and apppraochable trainers I have ever come across.
His passion for the subject coupled with his charm, style and decorum, is much appreciated. George is sensitive to his students' needs and ensures fairplay. This trait is all the more welcome, especially when his training classes are populated by people from diverse backgrounds.

George sets a great example for us, Master Trainers.

A follow-up from Master Trainer, Fauziah Shah . . .

Hi George,

It has been a while since I took your Master Trainer Class as part of the I.A.C.T. Trainers’ program. As I look back, I realize that this was the training that I shall never forget mainly because of your professionalism and your generosity in sharing your knowledge and expertise far beyond your call of duty.

I have attended numerous training programs in the field of hypnotherapy, counselling, psychotherapy and healing modalities, but this is the training that truly stands out mainly due to the charisma of the trainer, Dr George Bien! Your dedication and passion is indeed remarkable.

Thank you for being my friend and mentor!

George Bien is a fantastic trainer and someone I consider to be both a mentor and a good friend. The training I received was one of the best, if not, the BEST I have ever experienced! George instills confidence in every student and he is creating a legacy that will extend to many future generations.

I highly recommend George's training to anyone wanting to to become a better trainer, presenter, and an overall better person.

Bravo George! You are the best, and I am honored to be one of your students.

I've been in the field of hypnosis for over 20 years. Yet I was a bit apprehensive about attending the "Train-the-Trainer" seminar with George Bien because I wondered how I could learn the seminar material, then deliver it in a presentation, all in just 5 days.

When I arrived at the seminar I was further concerned, because I was surrounded by a group of participants whose skill levels were so varied, and whose personalities just didn't seem to blend.

I thought to myself, "How is this class ever going to come together?" Yet, it not only came together, it was a profound learning experience. George immediately recognized and catered to the needs of each individual, yet maintained complete control of the class at all times. He skillfully used narrative and real-world examples to enhance what he was teaching. His ability to take normally very formal and rigid material, and teach it in an informal, down-to-earth, exciting way, was wonderful and refreshing. He kept us riveted!

For me, the 5-days of the "Train-the-Trainer" seminar were like a process of 500 days. George created a very safe environment for all of us. He enabled us to display our strengths, personalities, creativity, and to our surprise, abilities we didn't even know we had.

It took me several weeks to truly comprehend what happened. George has a unique talent to create something extraordinary from nothing. There's no doubt that George has extraordinary charm, charisma, extensive knowledge and intuition, yet his ability to take a group, regardless of their backgrounds, and create such unity is truly a gift.

This seminar is a must for anyone who wants to teach hypnosis or any subject for that matter!

George, I really enjoyed being in your Train the Trainer class, it was a fun and extraordinary learning experience! You made everyone in the class feel at ease bringing out everyone's ability to grasp the subject matter and teach it convincingly. You have provided us the skills needed to succeed! George, your training was truly masterful!

In addition, you and your wife Elena, are gracious approachable Hosts. It was a such a pleasure and joy meeting the both of you!

Thank You so much!

The training we have received from Dr. George Bien is absolutely the best!  George is an excellent communicator and awesome presenter who really knows his stuff!  In addition, he is also a very decent, generous and genuine human being.

I strongly and absolutely recommend George’s courses/training programs, and all his educational material to all hypnotists/hypnotherapists, or anyone who wants to learn more about the art and science of hypnotism and human persuasion.

And to you George, I want to say, "Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!  Two Thumbs Up! Absolutely Superb!"

Anyone with questions about the Train-the-Trainer Certification Seminar with Dr. George Bien can feel free to contact me.

George Bien's Train-the-Trainer took my confidence to a whole new level! I knew from previous trainings and seminars taken with Dr. George Bien to only expect the best, but this seminar exceeded any expectations. I can honestly say that I feel proud and honored to teach what I have learnt from the master of masters in hypnotherapy training, and pass down to my students the techniques, professionalism, and humble passion that ultimately will make a difference in thousands of people's lives!
If you've ever thought about making a true difference in this world, this seminar will give you the tools, practice, and caring guidance to know that you are well qualified to do so!
There are many hypnosis instructor trainings being offered, but there is only one Train-the-Trainer Seminar, and there is only one George Bien!

I feel blessed and I am indefinitely grateful to have learnt more than I ever imagined from the top master trainer in the world! Thank you, George!

PS: If you are contemplating on taking the Train-the-Trainer Seminar or any other seminars given by Dr. George Bien, I'd be happy to tell you how his trainings have changed my life and the lives of hundreds of my clients and students!

George, it was a genuine honor being a student of yours.

Between my 8 years of college, the 1000's of hours in continuing education in the Dental and Hypnosis fields and the 1000's of hours spent in personal development workshops, I've seen many presenters and presentations and George after taking your training, I really feel like I studied under one of the masters.

The material and the way you presented it are second to none. As an instructor you have the rare combined gifts of knowledge, experience, compassion, patience, passion, humility, and humor, and most importantly approachability. The material (workbooks, DVD's, CD's) provided in this training can be easily presented and taught in the classroom. The course content is phenomenal and all based on your extensive knowledge and experience all to provide the students we will teach with the tools necessary to become excellent hypnotists. I particularly enjoyed the public speaking training you provided us—the feedback was incredibly helpful.

I highly recommend this training to anyone who wants to improve their own hypnotist abilities and wants to pass that knowledge to others.

Dr. George Bien is a trainer with a great heart! Not many trainers nor people do. The warmth that he exudes just permeates into the room. It's phenomenal!

Sincerity, honesty and integrity are but 3 little words that are not enough to describe how much this man has to offer. This chance to attend his class is a God-given opportunity and I really appreciate it. I have learnt so much from him because he is a trainer that goes WAY beyond the book.

Thank you George, you have touched my life!

I was initially apprehensive about coming all the way from Singapore to learn from you but, after the many days with you, I am convinced that the trip was so worthwhile.

You have impressed me with your unique style of delivery, always calm, composed, confident and most of all, you possess great charisma, befitting that of an outstanding and excellent trainer. You are an inspiration and role model to many trainers indeed, and your professional image, ethics, knowledge and skills, especially in the area of hypnotherapy, speak very well of you. If I had my way, I would certainly vote you in for the title of "Grand Master Trainer".

Thank you Dr. Bien, for your extreme effort and dedication in your imparting of knowledge to us and I really appreciate all that you have done for us during the workshop.

Before I pen off, I have to say that you have a wonderful wife, so warm, friendly, graceful and most of all, very charming. You both make a wonderful and very compatible couple... envious to many. Please say hello to Elena for me.

—Raymond Leong, Psychologist, CMT, Certified IACT Master Trainer

I've just attended George's Train-the-Trainer Certification Seminar, and I would like to say it was some of the best money I have ever invested. After attending numerous seminars and trainings over the last 20 years, I can truly say that George's warmth, skills, ability to teach in a way that makes perfect sense, are second to none.

The curriculum taught is extensive and of the highest standard I've seen, thus giving me great confidence in going forward with teaching hypnosis. A lot of people teach hypnosis but few, if any, have the depth of experience that George so generously shares with great warmth and in a very enjoyable way.

If you are considering becoming a Master Trainer, then Dr George Bien is the "go-to" guy! Many thanks George!

—Jason Jackman, CMT, Certified IACT Master Trainer

George is a true living pioneer and icon, that I am proud to call my mentor.
