Noal Z. Fox-Stern M.A. (ISP) & CHT. . . Who am I?
My Personal History, Training, and Licensing
My full name is Noal Zepher Fox-Stern. I was born in 1979 in Bellingham WA. I grew up with a strong interest in performing arts, literature, mythology, and ritualistic healing arts. My mother is a Child-and-Family Counselor and my father was a Humanistic Psychologist. Both of my parents were also teachers.
In 2001 I received my Bachelor’s degree from The Evergreen State College in Olympia WA. My undergraduate studies emphasized Education and Creative Writing.
In 2001 and 2002 I underwent training for and gained first-hand experience in facilitating “Coping Skills” Dropout Prevention & Resiliency Training process groups with middle school and high school students. “Coping Skills” is a uniquely successful approach to Humanistic Psychology that was designed by my late father G. Kenneth Fox PhD.
In 2002 and 2003 I attended a Hypnotherapy Certification program that was offered through Bellingham Technical College in Bellingham WA. The course was taught by professional Hypnotherapist and Hypnotherapy Instructor Jamie Engholm, designed by professional Hypnotherapist and Hypnotherapy Instructor C. Roy Hunter, and provides instruction in the Client-Centered Hypnotherapy techniques of the late Charles Tebbetts. Upon my completion of this nine-month course in, 2003, I received my Certification to practice professional Hypnotherapy through the American Council of Hypnotist Examiners.
Throughout the following decade I gained extensive work experience in Education, Childcare, and Life Skills Instruction/Counseling for Developmentally Disabled Adults. I also worked extensively with teenagers from backgrounds of abuse.
In 2010 I enrolled in Antioch University Seattle’s Clinical Mental Health Counseling program. Upon nearing completion of this certification, I decided that I preferred to practice Psychology from a more integrative perspective and transfer and apply my academic credits toward a different sort of Psych degree. This decision led me to the honor of becoming one of the last students to enroll in and graduate from Antioch’s unique Independent Studies in Psychology, or ISP, Master of Arts program,
My graduation from Antioch occurred in 2015. I thereby earn my Master’s Degree, or M.A., in Psychology. The culmination of my studies at Antioch involved the initial design and creation of: The Source-Psychology Perspective, The Magick of Mind Model, The Who-Me Compass, and the Psych-le of Source Integration and Consciousness Transformation, or PSI-CT healing process.
My Business Philosophy and Approach to Hypnotherapy and Healing
Quality therapy is also educational whereas quality education is also therapeutic. As a therapeutic-healing-arts practitioner, I want to assist you in your own healing processes. I do not want to usurp your business from another therapist or practitioner of some other healing art. I have found most other healing or therapeutic practices, to which I have been exposed, to be both fascinating and wonderful. I want to work in harmony with whatever healing or learning practices that you already utilize. I want to help your current practices and healing/learning endeavors to work better for you. I want to help you to empower yourself toward your own healing processes.
I don’t want to mislead you into thinking that you need my services to be healthy. I want to utilize my skills and abilities to support you in figuring out and achieving whatever it is that you need in order to be healthy and happy in your own life on your own terms. I want to inspire confidence in your own capacity to actively facilitate your own naturally developmental healing changes in consciousness. I want to inspire confidence in your own ability to Heal Yourself.
I want to use my knowledge and skills to help you achieve the healing transformations in consciousness that you will. My approach to therapeutic healing is designed to enhance any other approaches to health, healing, and learning that you may already be practicing. With Who-Me Healing Hypnotherapy I can help your current practices to work even better for you. Also, if your current health and learning practices are not feeling right or are not working well for you, we can apply Who-Me healing Hypnotherapy to help you discover ways to improve your own chosen practices; or else to choose new practices that feel both empowering and inspiring to you, and also produce noticeably enhanced effectiveness.
