C:\Users\Dr-Becky\Pictures\DrBecky\My Pics\Dr. Becky Beaton Photo_cropped.jpgDr. Beaton is a Licensed Psychologist and the Founder and Clinical Director of The Anxiety & Stress Management Institute (ASMI) with over 25 years of experience. She is a National Board Certified Fellow in Clinical Hypnotherapy (NBCCH-Fellow) through the National Board for Certified Clinical Hypnotherapists (NBCCH). Dr. Beaton earned her Fellowship (the highest level of certification) with NBCCH for her extensive years of training and experience in hypnotherapy in 2005. She has taught hundreds of workshops both nationally and internationally.  However, for many years Dr. Beaton exclusively taught hypnotherapy certification courses to mental health professionals all over the United States, Mexico, and South Africa. She later created the NBCCH approved training for ASMI in 2008, and she's excited to be teaching this course once again herself in 2017. The primary reason that she has chosen to teach it again amidst her busy schedule is how powerful the training is for the participants - both professionally and personally.  For planning purposes, please keep in mind that she only plans to teach this certification course once per year. Dr. Beaton is known for her unusual combination of being extremely knowledgeable & scientific yet down-to-earth & easy to understand, while also being playful and humorous. Not only will you learn a ton, you'll have fun doing so. LPCA of Georgia has awarded her with both the Counselor Educator of the Year Award in 2005 as well as the Lifetime Achievement Award in 2015.


About Our Program:

The Anxiety & Stress Management Institute is an integrative treatment and training facility offering continuing education workshops and seminars to mental health professionals in Atlanta, including a highly respected 60-hour training program for hypnotherapy certification. 

This unique program meets the training standards of the National Board for Certified Clinical Hypnotherapists for professionals seeking NBCCH certification, and it enables the trainee to develop practical skills through didactic teaching, observation of instructor, personal experience, and supervised hypnotherapy practice sessions.  The training covers clinically targeted applications of several effective methods and techniques which combine several theoretical models, ground-breaking neuroscience research and include the following:                                                  

  • The cutting edge research on neuroscience, the emotional brain, and memory reconsolidation to heal trauma.
  • Sensory-enhanced Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy.
  • Somato-sensory awareness for mind/body healing.
  • Imaginal exposure therapy for anxiety and the OCD spectrum disorders using trance, including Michelle Craske's ground-breaking research on inhibitory learning.
  • Applied resource state hypnotherapy for distress tolerance, containment, ego strengthening, stress management, and grounding.
  • Utilization of trance to enhance memory reconsolidation approaches such as EMDR, Tapping, RRT, the Counting Method, etc. for rapid trauma resolution while minimizing the danger of retraumatization. The application of the Counting Method combined with trance and the memory reconsolidation protocol for healing trauma is included as part of this training.
  • Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP).
  • Heart opening and gratitude to prime the mind and body for healing. A "HeartMath" biofeedback demonstration is utilized to illustrate the power of this simple yet powerful priming technique.
  • Transpersonal hypnotherapy
  • Ericksonian scripting.
  • Experiential approaches to facilitate corrective experiences via trance.
