Our work together will require your commitment, cooperation and motivation BUT,
Always check the credentials and training institute of your prospective hypnotherapist and ask questions if anything is unclear. You are welcome to check our qualifications, memberships and registrations with the relevant bodies.
There are many of us to choose from these days so it is important that whoever you decide on is adequately trained, qualified and right for you.
I received my Diploma (D.Hyp) in 2005 from the London College of Clinical Hypnosis (Uni London, Greenwich). This was a 3 year course that took place in a classroom and included theory and supervised practical assignments. It was not completed online or over a weekend or a week! (Be aware! They are out there)!
That was just the beginning, because new learning is never over! It’s like the proverbial end of the rainbow! You never quite get there.
Perhaps you can find that pot of gold though, because there is always something new to learn and achieve, some new technique to develop that could help a future client, some new take on an aspect of that vast pool of knowledge.
If we lived to be 1,000 years old we would never exhaust the potential for all the new learning that this subject offers – never know everything it might be possible to know.
Like all good therapists, Hypnotherapy Somerset invests time, money and energy each year into continuing professional development (CPD). Our work includes NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), Analytical, Solution Focused, Mindfulness and CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) techniques where we think it helpful but aside from this, believe that, as hypnotherapists, we should concentrate our efforts into becoming the best at what we do.
Voluntary work has played a big part in life – richly rewarding and a way to give something back to the community. Currently part of the local Covid-19 volunteer group and an NHS Responder, other roles have included Marie Curie Companion at Musgrove Park Hospital, CRUSE bereavement counsellor, hypnotherapist with Anxiety UK and committee member of Ovacome (national charity for ovarian cancer) for women diagnosed with ovarian cancer and their families.
