Hypnotherapy training is it for you ?

Why I became a Hypnotherapist and why hypnotherapy training could be for you.

hypnotherapy training is it for you
Explaining the different areas of the brain

Hi I’m Gary Johannes and I’m the senior lecturer here at CPHT Birmingham. But I’ve not always been a hypnotherapist.  Just like many of my students I’ve had a varied career. I studied hypnotherapy as personal development, to get business development so I could be better at my then job. However, I fell in love with being a hypnotherapist. So much so I built a busy practice of my own and now I’m also a lecturer for the gold standard hypnotherapy school CPHT.

Why was it a good move for me?

The best thing about being a hypnotherapist was the ability to help so many different people, in so many different ways.

Being a hypnotherapist gave me freedom to live the lifestyle I wanted. I was in control of my destiny, I was in control of how many hours I worked and when I worked. I could choose whether I wanted time off or whether I wanted to work every hour available. Having that choice felt good. It really was the freedom I enjoyed.

What kind of people retrain to become hypnotherapists?

You would be amazed at the variety of different types of people who train to become hypnotherapists. We get people who are working full time and want to change their careers, who want to get off the hamster wheel of corporate life.

You’ll meet people who are already qualified in the therapy or medical world, like a nurse or counsellor.  Sometimes body workers – physiotherapists or chiropractors who want to help more people. We get people who have been a full time parent and want to get back into the work place.

How do you fit hypnotherapy training around your life? 

One of the questions I get asked on a regular basis is, how do I fit in all the course work around my already busy life? I believe our course is perfect for that! Whether you work full time, part time, are a stay at home parent of young children (we’ve even had a nursing mum on one of our courses), you are semi-retired but not ready to stop work, you’re in full time education and want a practical application to add to your academic studies, you’ve been made redundant and are looking for your next, and maybe last career move.  It really doesn’t matter, because what they all said is, with a little planning and organisation, how simple it was and how flexible it was to fit training into their lives.

What also sets us apart?

Other than having a track record for producing confident hypnotherapists who have already begun to establish their practices before they finish the course, what makes us truly unique is our style of hypnotherapy.  We practice Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, which is a modern form of hypnotherapy.  It is future paced, so your clients will resolve their issues without delving into the past.  We have the neuroscience and results to prove how powerful this model of therapy is.  We are at the forefront of the hypnotherapy world and when you are qualified, you will be too.

If you want to be at the cutting edge of hypnotherapy and make a real difference to the clients you see in the future, with a successful career in hypnotherapy this could be the right Course for you.  To find out about the next hypnotherapy diploma course run by CPHT Kent, just give senior lecturer Gary Johannes a call on 07780 592625 (he runs a busy practice so you may have to leave a message) or click this link to send us an application form today.  Training is over 10 months and you’ll be working towards the Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD), the only nationally recognised and independently assessed hypnotherapy qualification in the UK.

Adding New Strings To Your Bow… Hypnotherapy Training

Hypnotherapy TrainingRecently I was asked what it meant to have another string to my bow? It made me think for a moment and then I was aware of a warm, confident feeling flow through me.

Currently I am a Chiropractor training in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (SFH). Seem odd to you? Well there are actually a lot of overlaps. Many of my Chiropractic patients re-present repeatedly with aches and pains caused by posture, injury and more than often driven by an element of stress and tension. SFH helps people to relax and unwind, which can be very beneficial to not just their mental wellbeing but that of their physical body too.

I ventured into SFH because I wanted to help patients realise and be their best but also Chiropractic is a very physical job and due to my genetics it is likely that I won’t be able to physically do my job right up to retirement age and the thought of not being able to help people out of pain was challenging me.

The opportunity came along and I grasped it with both hands. Not only do I get to continue to help people for longer but I have benefitted myself from learning about and understanding, how the brain works and what a healthy mind looks and feels like.

I am half way through my training and I feel lighter, brighter and confident. The trials and tribulations of life still happen but they are more manageable and I see a future full of helping people feel the same way.

Hypnotherapy Training after 20 years as a Mum

I’m no longer ‘Just Mum’

I have been fortunate enough to be a stay at home Mum for the last 20 years.  With my youngest son off to university I knew it was time to get back out in the world.  Being at home during my children’s formative years was an amazing privilege however it’s not great for your confidence.  I had become an expert at getting the stains out of rugby kits and could bake a reasonable cake but the thought of going out to work was very daunting!

Within the last couple of years we had as a family seen first-hand the true value of hypnotherapy and what powerful change it can bring about.  My husband had been commuting for five hours a day and after nine years this started to take its toll and he began to suffer panic attacks on the train.  Visits to the doctor and several sessions of counselling had little impact and then quite by chance I came across a leaflet that on one side exactly described Sean symptoms and on the other explained how hypnotherapy could help.  Sean had regular sessions of hypnotherapy with Gary Johannes of Inspired to Change for a couple of months.  Almost instantly Sean started to feel better and within a few weeks he was back at work.  I was fascinated by the power of hypnotherapy and started to look into training courses.

As if it was meant to be, Sean received an email from Gary to say that he was starting a CPHT Hypnotherapy training course in Peterborough.  The Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training (CPHT) is a nationwide training body providing a Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma Course. Hypnotherapy is now considered to be one of the fastest growing professions in the UK and CPHT has enabled hundreds of students to become successful hypnotherapists.  I already knew just how powerful this form of hypnotherapy was and so had no concerns about the subject of the course itself however I was nervous about my own ability to study after all these years.  Gary was very reassuring, he explained that it was a very practical course where you are encouraged to start seeing clients from the very beginning and you are well supported throughout.  The academic side clearly explained and you are given plenty of time to complete the work.

I thoroughly enjoyed doing this course, yes it stretched me but I learnt so much about myself as well as how to really help and make a difference to my clients.  Don’t let age or lack of self-belief stop you from doing this course, it is good to stretch yourself and discover what you are truly capable of and think of all the good you can do for so many people.
