Manchester Hypnotherapy Training

One of the questions we often get asked from potential students who are interested in our Manchester hypnotherapy training course is ‘How long will it be until I can start practising as a hypnotherapist’. So we thought it worthy of a brief blog to explain.

The answer is – fairly quickly !  Firstly, you can relax, you are in good hands here. Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training (CPHT) has been in operation for nearly 25 years, and we have trained a lot of solution focused hypnotherapists in that time ! We have over 20 UK locations at the time of writing up and down the country.

Hypnotherapy Training senior lecturers

Jane and I (Debbie) are your senior lecturers, and we look after you. We remember, how it was when we started training to become solution focused hypnotherapists. In fact, we met on this very same course at CPHT Manchester that you are looking at now. We never thought that one day we would end up full circle. We both are now full time solution focused hypnotherapists with our own busy practices. We love what we do because it’s so positive and helpful to clients. We also love having a captive audience in our teaching to encourage new practitioners in their new careers.

Back to the Question…

So let’s get back to the question… we realise you are keen to get going, and also to recuperate the training costs. The good news is that you can start to practice as a student whilst you are training ! In fact, from month 1, you will be able to confidently practice relaxation on the couch with family and friends as a student practitioner.

Each module builds more knowledge that you can practice outside the teaching room. So, as we add weight management, or phobias, or smoking cessation, and more structure to the sessions, you will be able to go and practice that with your appreciative volunteers. You will also learn psychotherapy skills – you will soon see that it’s not all about what happens on the couch. No swinging watches or old fashioned stage induction tricks here.

Hypnotherapy supervision and support

We provide  individual support as needed between weekends and we have group supervision each month. After month 8, and subject to having completed key tasks and approved by your tutors you can start to charge half price to your clients as a student practitioner.

What this means is, by the time you complete the course, 10 months later, you will have had lots of practice. You will have seen the results working with your volunteers, and you may have already started to get word of mouth referrals.

We even give you the tools to measure outcomes with your clients. See this other blog for more information tools to check outcome measures with your hypnotherapy clients

The next course starts in February 2020, don’t miss out, this could be the perfect thing for you. Contact us for details. 07724 855395 www.cphtmanchester.co.uk

Hypnotherapy training for sports performance

Glenn Catley HypnotherapyGlenn Catley – former World Champion Boxer to speak at CPHT Manchester

Glenn Catley is a former World Champion Boxer (Super Middleweight Division).  We’re very proud that he will be visiting CPHT Manchester on our forthcoming course to explain how hypnotherapy helped him achieve his World Champion status.

As lecturers we know that one of the best ways we can help sporting people is to help improve their confidence in their performance.  It’s then amazing what they can achieve.

If a person is struggling to achieve their true potential, then sometimes they focus on what is going wrong rather than what is going well.  To overcome their nerves before a big race or get the right mindset before significant trials, we help them to achieve a positive mindset and help overcome the negatives. Sport is not just about physical ability, it’s also about mental ability.

Visualisation Helps

Jessica Ennis-Hill, Heptathlon Gold medallist in the London 2012 Olympics, is quoted as saying: “I use visualisation to think about the perfect technique. If I can get that perfect image in my head, then hopefully it’ll affect my physical performance.”

In one study, Jon Williamson (a professor at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center who studies the brain’s role in exercise and physical activity), examined athletes riding exercise bikes under hypnosis:

“We told them they were about to go up a hill, and their heart rate increased even though their workload hadn’t changed. When that happened, we saw activation in the insular cortex [part of the brain],” he said. Other studies have shown athletes can even prepare their bodies to perform well despite a decrease in ambient oxygen levels if they know the drop is coming in advance…”

When our CPHT Manchester joint lecturers, Nic and Debs, work with sporting professionals, they ask them to direct their thoughts towards what they want to achieve, then they will get better results.

At CPHT Manchester, we are very successfully producing clinical hypnotherapists that understand how people can enhance their performance.

Get in touch if you want to be part of a very successful team of students who will be having fun learning about hypnotherapy starting this February!  Call Nicola on 0773 866 5172 or email us via info@cphtmanchester.co.uk.
