Incorporating the principles of NLP and using specialized hypnotic techniques Igor trained groups and individually coached business leaders in leading international organizations, such as Grant Thornton and Proctor & Gamble, to accelerate change and improve their performance in the workplace.
Igor has been training in the martial arts since the age of 14. At 18 he started training in a highly practical self-defense system called Kenpo (translates as "the Law of the Fist".) He received his black belt in record time and opened his first Kenpo school at Exeter University. He later started a successful Kenpo school in central London and has taken several senior students through to black belt level.
Igor Ledochowski took everything he had discovered from Dr. Erickson regarding semi-covert strategies... and isolated the main principles. By isolating the principles behind Dr. Erickson's techniques he discovered what made them work. He then tested different ways to turn these semi-covert strategies into truly...
Ones you can use any time during normal conversations, without being detected by the subject or bystanders. In private practice, he dealt with everything from relationship problems, smoking issues, weight loss, fears, phobias and just about anything else a therapist encounters. And again...
his covert methods worked like a charm.
Igor Ledochowski had figured out how to use the forbidden secret of true covert hypnosis, something with which even Dr. Erickson was not completely familiar.
Igor Ledochowski sought out Dr. Milton Erickson, who was the best source of information on hypnosis. He dug deep and uncovered five volumes of his unpublished works. He poured over those texts night and day... until... the information became second nature.
Igor Ledochowski researched any available papers, journals, articles written by Dr. Erickson. He uncovered some videos of him training a group of hypnotherapists and watched them several dozen times. He was a man on a mission.
He tracked down several top Ericksonian therapists to learn directly from them. Some of these hypnotherapists had worked side-by-side with Dr. Erickson for a number of years. He took countless training courses and consumed well over 1,000 hours reading, watching videos, and studying.
