Another Group of Enthuisiastic Students
It has almost been 10 years since I became the Principal of the National College of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy, though I had been training therapists since 1993, I have always considered being the Principal of the oldest school in the UK of hypnosis and psychotherapy to be the jewel of my teaching career. As I sit in the Royal College of Surgeons waiting to embark on another State 1 intake, I started thingking that this would be around 200 students I have personally trained in the past 10 years.
This to me is a very personal thing, like with clients, I feel privileged to be a part of people’s lives. With my students however, the meaning is different. I hope that I managed to impress upon them the importance of ethical practice and the confidence that they need to engage as hypno-psychotherapists. I know that historically, the National College has been the starting point of many people’s careers in the past 39 years. Indeed, there are several training school owners who began their careers here.
I know that I have in the past gone on about the importance of good training when seeking a qualified therapist. I stand by this, for the sake of the public it is essential that the therapist that you seek has been properly training and are accountable to the appropriate ethics of clinical practice. As the 5th person to have the title Principal of the National College of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy, I can assure you that if you undertake therapy with one of our graduates, you will be getting an excellent trained therapist to help you with your issues.
