The impact of social isolation on Hypnotherapy Training by CPHT Leeds

If you are considering a hypnotherapy training course, you may be worried about the Covid-19 situation. You may be concerned that if it is held online, it may not be as effective as a face to face course. We decided to answer seven of the most popular questions here, to reassure your concerns.

Will the next training course be an online course in part or wholly?

When we get the go-ahead from the Government, our course will return to being run as a face-to-face course as originally planned. This will be held in the Blue Room at Leeds Trinity University in Horsforth. However, at the moment we are not completely sure when that will be, so we are preparing for both eventualities. As the next course doesn’t start until September 2020. We are hopeful that we will be seeing students in person for the majority of the course, if not all of it.

Surely an online course won’t be as good as a face-to face course?

Live Video Conferencing

It’s important to make the distinction between an online course and a live video conference. When most people talk about an online course, they usually refer to having access to a number of videos that can be viewed online, at a time to suit them. There would normally be some written material to go with the videos and very little practical work. CPHT Leeds run interactive courses online using the live video conferencing platform Zoom. We have two tutors available to answer your questions at all times during the weekend. We do everything that we would normally do in our face-to-face training sessions. This includes demonstrating the skills you will need and watching you practice those skills with fellow students. The weekend modules are very practical, full of variety, fun and entertaining.

How can the students practice the skills on each other in a video conference?

Zoom offers a break-out room facility, it enables us to pair students together to practice their skills. Caron and Jenny, the tutors, are able to pop into each room to see how you’re getting on and to offer  advice.

Will the qualification be considered as good as it would have been had I attended the course in person?

The short answer is yes. At the start of social isolation, CPHT got in touch with the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) who got together with the Complementary & National Healthcare Council (CNHC). The NCH and CNHC are actively involved in shaping the standards and future of hypnotherapy in the UK. Both organisations have granted dispensation to all those courses being run during the Covid-19 outbreak to be held online. They have assured us that graduates during this time will obtain the same level of accreditation as those who have attended face-to-face training sessions previously.

You say that there will be a lot of variety, but we’ll be staring at a screen for two full days at a time, that can’t be fun surely?

Our face-to-face sessions use a variety of teaching styles to hold the attention of the students, as any good quality course would do. The same practice applies to our online sessions. We incorporate a mix of video, power point, lecturer-led and small group activities for the students.  This is supplemented by practical work between modules, just as it would be were we to meet in person. Breaks are held at regular intervals, to allow students to get up and move around. 

Will the course be any cheaper if it is held online?

The price of the course is to enable you to take advantage of obtaining the two qualifications on offer with CPHT Leeds. The DSFH (Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy) and the HPD (Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma). We know that some of our costs will reduce if a course is held  online, while other costs will inevitably increase. You, however, will probably find it cheaper & less time-consuming to attend training via a live video conference. This is due to less traveling with potentially fewer accommodation costs.

Have you held a course online like this before?

Yes, the current training course (LS4) started out with students attending a local venue, as had always been the case before the Covid-19 situation. After module 7 we had to move to live video conference sessions using Zoom. After some initial trepidation on hearing that we would need to move to online training, the students fully embraced the experience. They were heard to state after the module that it had been just as good as if they attended the module in person.

 

 

 

How do you choose a hypnotherapy training school?

If you’re looking for a Hypnotherapy Training School, first you need to decide what you want to achieve. Do you just want to learn to do self-hypnosis? What about the more flamboyant stage or street hypnosis, is that more your style? Perhaps you’d like to help others to get their lives back on track? Are you looking at this as a hobby, albeit a financially rewarding one? Do you want to change career completely or simply add to your existing skills?Choose Hypnotherapy school, decide on hypnotherapy school, choose hypnotherapy training, decide on type of hypnotherapy training.
Once you’ve answered the questions above you now have a better idea of what to look for in a training course. Self-hypnosis is covered at a certificate level and although it doesn’t allow you to practice as a hypnotherapist, this may be all that you need to fulfil your ambition. However, some people start out wanting to carry out self-hypnosis and then decide they want to know more. If this could be you then maybe the diploma course would be more appropriate? If you’re looking for stage or street hypnosis to entertain, then a diploma course is not necessary. However, confidence and a stage presence are. There are many such courses available and a quick Google search will point you in the right direction.
If you want to help others to get their lives on track by using hypnotherapy along with the latest brain based therapy, then the Solution Focused Hypnotherapy Diploma is for you. Whether you wish to use it as a hobby, work part-time, supplement existing skills in your current career or train for a brand new career, then the CPHT Leeds course offers you everything you need.

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 a call. She would love to hear from you. You might need to leave a message as she and Caron both run busy hypnotherapy practices, but she will always get back to you. She can’t wait to answer your questions!

Training as a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist

When I decided to train as a hypnotherapist the things I was looking for in a training school were pretty simple. I wanted the best quality training that gave me a recognized and accredited qualification. It was important I was able to pay monthly and I wanted to feel confident that at the end of the training I could make a success both clinically and financially.

After the first weekend I knew I had made the right decision, I couldn’t wait for the next weekend. The group was quite diverse from all different backgrounds. Careers varying from medical nurses, marketing, account clerks and more. Some students of which remain my closest colleagues practicing hypnotherapy some part time and others full time. As the weeks passed I felt fully supported not only by the lecturer but by other students in the group. We were encouraged from the very beginning to begin practicing on our family and friends. I never realized I had so many friends in need of relaxation!

This practical foundation was crucial in building my confidence. I was quickly seeing 30 people a month and the results that I saw were astounding. Friends sleeping better, family members feeling calmer and less stressed. My weight loss sessions with a group of lovely ladies often got lively at times and they seemed occasionally less concerned about losing the weight and more interested in laughing.

The change was not only apparent in the people I saw, I noticed a change in myself too. The evidence based knowledge on the course was important to me. Coming from a medical background, I needed to understand that the information that we give to our clients is current, accurate and based on a proven methodology.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy works, I see it every day.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy has made the difference to many hundreds of people I have seen and it has changed my life too. I have a successful business, I can organize my work time to suit me and my passion for hypnotherapy has continued growing.
