May 2014  Congratulations to one of our founders, Michael Ellner, on receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Association of Counselors and Therapists.
"Receiving a Top Honor is always thrilling, but being honored in front of hypnosis professionals from around the world is a peak experience," Ellner said. He added: "This award was icing on an already delicious cake, because I love teaching, studying and meeting new and old friends at the IMDHA/IACT annual conference."

UPDATE: We are so sad to lose our founder, Michael. After a lengthy illness, he passed away in February, 2018. His legacy of teaching, wisdom and love carries on!
