Saturday 11 October 2014 – Cancer and Hypnotherapy

Brief description:
Learn how to effectively support cancer patients alongside orthodox medical treatment.

Learning Objectives:
Over 300,000 people each year are diagnosed with Cancer in the UK each year. Over a lifetime approximately 1 in 3 people will develop this disease. Our Cancer Hypnotherapy Masterclass looks at all aspects of this complex illness and offers therapeutic psychological interventions to assist clients in their Cancer journey. This Masterclass is run by Martina McKeough who specialises in Cancer Hypnotherapy having worked actively with Cancer patients at Cherry Lodge Cancer Care in Barnet. Martina is also an Ovarian Cancer survivor and therefore has first-hand knowledge of the psychological impact as well as the treatment of this disease. We are the only Hypnosis cancer course in the UK to run a CPD with a therapist who has experienced the disease first hand.
