Another New Group

Another New Group

One of the great privileges of my work is the honour to start people on their journey as hypno-psychotherapists. I have been training therapists since 1993, which has afforded me a unique view as to how the profession has changed and developed. I am pleased to say that the profession has moved forward in a very positive way.

Training standards have become far more comprehensive and the students far more professional. Today a new foundations in hypno-psychotherapy course begins. If I am honest it is one of my favourite courses as it introduces the students to the nuts and bolts of what makes hypnosis a therapeutic process. Indeed it covers the following:

  • Ethical issues relating to the use of hypnosis and hypnotherapy
  • Fundamental principles of hypnosis/ hypnotherapy
  • Tests for hypnotic suggestibility
  • Preparing the subject for hypnosis
  • The importance of semantics in the use of hypnosis
  • Hypnotic induction techniques
  • Hypnotic deepening techniques
  • Termination of hypnosis
  • The use of post-hypnotic suggestions
  • Some psychological principles applicable to hypnosis

As you will no doubt notice the first thing on the agenda is ethics. I believe that this is the most important part of the training process. Ethics must underpin all clinical work.

As I embark on this new cohort, I can only hope they are as excited as I am.
