CPD Event title: Smoking Cessation Masterclass

Brief Description Of Event: Are you interested in helping people to stop smoking? We’ve been teaching therapists how to do smoking cessation for over 14 years now and our smoking cessation 2-day masterclass has developed a reputation for excellence, due in part to the emphasis we place on simple, no-nonsense, evidence-based approaches derived from the mainstream clinical and research literature in the fields of CBT and hypnotherapy.
Each year the course is refined and developed. This course is open to all qualified hypnotherapists and hypnotherapy students in training.
Mark Davis, the principal and director of The UK College of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy, will be leading the workshop. Mark has specialised in smoking cessation since 2007. With 10 years of experience and having helped over 300 clients quit smoking, Mark has extensive experience and a deep passion for helping people quit permanently and become “happy, healthy non-smokers”.

– Smoking Cessation Assessment (e.g. measuring nicotine dependency, “habit strength”, etc)
– The CBH “conceptualisation” (the vicious circle of smoking)
– How to plan the session (treatment planning)
– A big “toolbox” of evidence-based techniques
– Key information that optimises results (e.g. which is the best day of the week for smokers to quit!)

– You will be able to understand the assessment and the main working models (or vicious cycles) of the most common mental health disorders, likely to present in your therapy room.
– By the end of the course you will be able to conduct a risk and protective factors assessment.

⭐ 4th April 2020 (1 day) – Certificate in Key Psychosexual Issues Impacting Men – One Day CPD Workshop

CPD Event title: Certificate in Key Psychosexual Issues Impacting Men – One Day CPD Workshop

Brief Description Of Event: This course takes a frank look at the main sexual issues affecting men – including erectile dysfunction, millennial ED, premature and delayed ejaculation and performance anxiety – and how to work with and help your male clients.

Talking about sex is not easy for many of us, it can often be awkward and embarrassing, certainly for clients. However, psycho-sexual issues are having an ever-increasing impact on men’s mental health and well-being and it is useful for a therapist to have an understanding of these issues and the tools necessary to help.

This subject is an important one, the course, however, will not be heavy going and if you’re worried that you might feel awkward, don’t worry these are normal reactions for many of us and can be useful to get over, as we often have no idea what our clients might talk about in sessions.

Learning Objectives: On the Workshop you will learn:
• How to talk comfortably about these issues
• An understanding of what causes these issues and why they are on the rise
• How to decide if the issues are more psychological than physiological – the former being where you can help, the latter more likely being something for a medical doctor
• The importance of psycho-education and normalising the issues
• The impact of porn and how to encourage men away from such a, for many enjoyable thing
• How to use a range of tools to help deal with these situations – scripts, education, anchoring, home-based exercises, NLP techniques

Course Structure: The day will begin at 10 am and complete around 4.30 pm. There will be a break for lunch during which we will serve a delicious and varied buffet. Please tell us when booking if you have any special dietary requirements.
Refreshments will be served throughout the day.
