Hypnosis for Psychotherapists
I have been teaching and training hypnosis professionals since 1993. Few things give me more satisfaction than coming up with new ways to get the truth about the effectiveness of hypnosis as a therapeutic tool to as wide an audience as possible.
This weekend is the first module of The National College of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy’s Certificate in Hypnosis for Qualified Psychotherapists and Counsellors. This course holds a special place in my esteem as it is a programme designed to help psychotherapists and counsellors utilise hypnosis into their current clinical practice.
I genuinely believe that this course serves an additional and as important purpose. That is to foster better cross modality understanding. Often in the Psychotherapeutic world there is a natural misunderstanding of what each modality does. Hypnosis often is totally misunderstood, as I have written on many times in the past. If more psychotherapists understand the usefulness of hypnosis the more we can work together collegiately.
Hypnosis is a great enhancement to the Psychotherapeutic and Counselling relationship. When it is effectively used it can add a new dynamic to the therapeutic relationship. This can lead to better results for the client. After all isn’t that why we became therapists in the first place?
