The End of an Era
Here I sit at the second day of the International Hypno-Psychotherapy Conference. It is very much like the 21 other conferences I have organised. The difference this time is that this one is my last. My business partner and sister from another mister have decided to stand down from the administration of the National College of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy after nearly 13 years.
For me this has added significance in that after the October Foundations in Hypno-Psychotherapy Course, I will also be ending my 27 year teaching career. I have trained thousands of therapists with The Washington School of Clinical and Advanced Hypnosis, the UK Academy of Therapeutic Arts and Sciences, and of course, The National College of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy. Added to this is in excess of 100 Conference Presentations worldwide. Teaching has been my pleasure and privilege to do and I have been pleased and proud of those students who surpassed me and my knowledge. But there comes a time to stop and that time is now.
This does not mean I am leaving the profession, far from it. I will continue in my clinical practice as well as supervising experienced and novice therapists. This is the work, that I began my career with and the work I have never grown tired of.
