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

Train To Be A Hypnotherapist Manchester

A Hypnotherapist has a very varied life!

Snakes, spiders, heights, flying… these are common phobias clients arrive at our therapy door with.  There are also some more unusual ones, such as a fear of the colour yellow, a fear of trees and a fear of cheese, yes cheese!

A career as a clinical hypnotherapist can be very varied.  The above list of phobias is just the tip of the phobia iceberg, and we work with many other areas in addition to helping our customers sort their phobias.

Anxiety

The vast majority of our work is helping people to overcome generalised anxiety.  Anxiety is so common in today’s society.  Symptoms have a vast range, from insomnia through to actual pain; from eating too much through to not eating enough; from biting nails to pulling hair out.  All can be caused by anxiety.

No matter what the issues, we can usually help the customer to reduce the anxiety surrounding the problem and regain intellectual control. This is extremely rewarding for both the therapist and customer alike.

Hypnotherapy Training

At Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training (CPHT), Manchester, we teach our students how to deal with the huge variety of issues that their customers will present with.  Different techniques, including the 4-session technique to help overcome phobias and the one-session way of helping someone to stop smoking. When it comes to general anxiety, we know it can take 6-8-12 sessions (sometimes more) to help overcome anxiety.

Meet & Greet!

If you would like to consider a career that is as varied as it is rewarding, pop along to our Meet & Greet afternoon on Sunday 1st September (from 2.30pm to 4pm) at the Chancellors Hotel in Manchester.

Our Senior Lecturers, Debbie Daltrey and Jane Fox, will be on hand to chat through the varying aspects of the highly acclaimed Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma course.  We can also explain the benefits of being a solution focused hypnotherapist.

CPHT has been providing Hypnotherapy Training in the UK for over 24 years, with over 20 satellite schools across the UK and a growing international presence.

We won’t miss our Graduates!

Having just waved goodbye to our lovely students who’ve just graduated in November, we know that we won’t miss them too much as we’ll be bumping into them again.  This will either be via Continual Professional Development events or simply because we’ve made friends with them and they’re still emailing us and commenting on our posts on Facebook.  

The Diploma course has been carefully structured to ensure the students have built momentum with their new businesses by the time they qualify.  This means, as they graduate, they move smoothly from being a student to a part-time or full-time therapist depending on what they want as a career.  

Because we’re a very hands-on practical course, our graduates are confident about seeing clients with a very wide range of issues.  They will have also selected a Supervisor to touch base with for advice and guidance when needed.

We’ve been rather impressed with how resourceful our graduates have been in finding a location to practice from.  Some have rented rooms at a therapy centre, one at a GP surgery and another at a spare room in a hair salon.  Luckily, in this profession, we can also work from home if that suits us. Whatever the location, we can be sure they will all provide a professional, caring environment, enhancing their clients’ experience of the therapy.

As we move forward towards our next course, we are smiling at the feedback we’ve received from this last course. Feedback such as:

“I really cannot thank you enough for leading me down this exciting path in life and teaching me the skills to help so many others it is so rewarding.”

Through to “Thank you both for being the most amazing lecturers, your knowledge, your humour and the wonderful way you impart information has made the course thoroughly enjoyable and I think you have been absolutely fantastic. When ever I have asked for guidance you have responded promptly and given expert practical advice which I have valued enormously. I have loved the course and would recommend it to anyone as being of the highest standard”.

 No doubt it’ll seem like theblink of an eye before we’re reading some good feedback on our next course!

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.

Fun with hypnotherapy training

Hypnotherapy with us is fun!

As David Newton, founder of CPHT, is always saying: “It needs to be fun” and he also says “We need to get on with it”.  So when it comes to training at CPHT Manchester we really do like to ‘get on with it’ and have fun.

Even in the interviews we like to laugh and this carries on to the course weekends themselves.  There will be a great deal of concentration too we hasten to add, especially in the early days as students get to grips with neuroscience and how the brain works.

So why are the words ‘we just have to get on with it’ frequently heard in the classroom?  Well, we know the subconscious mind is an absolute professional at procrastination, therefore gentle encouragement to get on and do something, or even simply start a process can be useful – especially when it comes to starting to write up the portfolio that is required at the end of the course!

Fun and laughter is good for the brain.

Many of CPHT’s courses are located within therapy centres and it’s not unusual for receptionists to comment “It’s not supposed to be fun you know”. But we suppose that’s where solution focused hypnotherapy is a bit different, both with the training and once the student graduates and takes a smile into the clinic when meeting a client.

In fact, we’ve had other therapy centre clients and therapists so intrigued they sign up for the course, as do quite a few of our clients from our own hypnotherapy practices.

So keep smiling, it is proven to be very good for you.  And if you want cheering up, then perhaps it is time for that change of career, so have a chat with us.  Check out the dates here: www.cphtmanchester.co.uk/dates.
