A little about Randy Shaw...
Below is the most significant certifications, trainings and influences
that have shaped my understanding and skills as a Hypnotherapist.
I knew by October of 2002 that I wanted to go into the field Hypnosis as my new life direction.
I dedicated the direction of my life in the spring of 2003 to becoming a master of Hypnotherapy, because of its boundless potential to help people significantly enhance and heal their lives. I was, and still am willing to pay the price and invest my efforts.
The list below represents the highlights of how this amazing
journey has unfolded for me, step by step.
Extensive Influence and Support from:
Robert Shaw, Salt Lake Hypnosis Center (Est. 1984).
Starting in October 2002 (when I got completely serious
about Hypnosis) and is ongoing. Robert has over 25 years of experience as a Hypnotist and Hypnotherapist,
and is my father!
We've had countless talks and discussions about hypnosis.
He allowed me access to hundreds of video and audio training tapes
from his extensive collection of seminars, conventions
and workshops over the last 25+ years. A virtual education
in itself: Gerry Kien, Don Mottin, Dr. Michael Preston and
many, many more.
Omni Hypnosis Training Center, Deland, Florida
Gerald F. Kien, one of the best instructors, 30 + years.
Very thorough introduction and study. I am recommending this basics to advanced course for those interested in getting a solid hypnosis foundation.

Hypnotherapy Sessions with Gil Boyne
October 2003 Sante Fe, New Mexico.
What a truly amazing person. Without Gil's considerable contributions to
the development and exposure of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy, we would be 30 years behind in the effectiveness and productivity
that is now possible by professional (serious) Hypnosis practitioners.
Experiencing sessions with him and "picking his brain" for many hours was a huge boost to my career.
Personally Experienced Successful Hypnotherapy
With Matt Sison CHt., Sherman Oaks, California.
At this time in my life this exprience was the best thing for my progress both as
a human being and as a Hypnotherapist. I found that Matt is an exceptional Hypnotherapist and person.
"Going through" Hypnotherapy myself, the experience, greatly increased my empathy for the people I work with. It takes
alot of courage to face your inner stuff.
Education and utilization of Stephen Parkhill Concepts and Methods
March 2004, ongoing - with assistance from Matt Sison, Stephen's "torch bearer".
Stephen has had tremendous success with clients in resolving and healing the
"higher end of the spectrum" of illnesses labled chronic and terminal, such as cancer.
Stephen Parkhill is the author of Answer Cancer, the Healing of a Nation.
It's out of print for the second time.
Stephen Parkhill in my opinion will become a world wide recognized master of healing in the
not too distant future.

Emotional Freedom Technique: EFT
Certificate of Completion, Fundamentals Course, August, 2005.
EFT was introduced to me by Matt Sison (see above), as a powerful tool to facilitate the release of negative feelings and blockage to allow positive energy/feelings to flow and be re-established within our body/mind. I'm currently working on a DVD that demonstrates how I've put together EFT with Hypnosis to help my clients get rapid relief and changes.
