How does change begin?

A starting place from attempting to solve any problem is having an understanding of why it happens. There is plenty of researched evidence to show that informed clients improve more quickly than those less informed. During the initial consultation, we as Solution Focused Hypnotherapists, explain how the brain works. This simple and accurate description of how and why we suffer from mental health issues, forms the foundation and understanding that facilitates effective therapeutic change.

The mind is enormously complex, as we all know. A human brain has 100 billion neurons and 20,000 synaptic connections bathed in multiple neurotransmitters. It’s difficult to imagine the sheer volume of the interactions that go on. It may be hard to determine that small factor that could contribute to a mental health problem. However the wonderful and powerful aspect to this ‘tipping effect’ is that as Clinical Hypnotherapists we can tip the system towards the positive. A small seemingly inconsequential action can lead to a successful resolution to the disorder. It can all start with a small change in behaviour, a depressed person deciding to go for a bike ride, then he starts going regularly, his appetite increases, his sleeping improves, he feels stronger.

We see this progressive cChange your career, Change your life, New starthange in our clients, as people return to work feeling better, begin to interact socially again and some even jump on planes that they have been avoiding for years. Most importantly people start to cope with all that they have to handle.

 

Hypnotherapy makes a difference, we make a difference.

Hypnosis. Want to know the truth?

Often it’s easier to explain what hypnosis is not, rather than what it is. This is because many of us have a distorted view of hypnosis due to an abundance of books, films and stage shows that distort our perceptions of hypnosis for the sake of entertainment. After all the media tends to dramatise everything in order to encourage people to watch their films, see their shows or read their books.
I had no idea what to expect the first time I was hypnotised and was quickly reassured that I would remain in complete control at all times. I would not end up barking like a dog each time EastEnders came on TV. In fact, I would only take on board the information that I found relevant to my situation. This was a relief to me as like most people I’m someone who likes to feel in control. There was also a distinct lack of swinging watches!

Learning to hypnotise others at CPHT Leeds
Our student hypnotherapists are encouraged to practice on each other during their very first hypnotherapy training weekend. After the first weekend we encourage them to practice on willing friends and family. This gives them confidence in their ability to hypnotise others very quickly. When they’re encouraged to use their skills free of charge on the general public just a couple of months later, most students are raring to go! In truth, most students agree, that their family and friends were much harder to deal with than the general public. By the end of the course they’re feeling confident in their abilities and will often have dealt successfully with quite a few conditions before they start to charge for their services. It is this element of the course that best prepares students for setting up in business.
As soon as the students graduate they start receiving regular supervision to help them handle any scenario they come across. This is the benefit of being trained by qualified supervisors, there’s a wonderful continuity where everyone is singing from the same hymn sheet. We’ve been where you are at every stage of the process so we know how you feel.
If this course, run by CPHT Leeds, sounds like the one for you, just give Jenny or Cathy a call. We would love to hear from you. You might need to leave a message as we both run busy hypnotherapy practices, but we will always get back to you. We can’t wait to answer your questions!
