DescriptionThe Physical/Emotional Sexuality Model is a new/old way of perceiving how we communicate, based on hypnotic suggestibility. What is especially poignant is that it tends to show up in couples and other relationships, causing all kinds of problems until we understand it. I will be explaining it in simple terms that are easy to present to your clients especially in relationship work. It is easy to implement and produces instant positive results in increasing understanding and reducing conflict between partners.
