⭐ 11th May 2019 (2 days) – Effectiveness of Hypnosis and the Evidence in Neuroscience

CPD Event title: Effectiveness of Hypnosis and the Evidence in Neuroscience

Brief Description Of Event: This course covers everything from why our clients feel anxious, angry or sad and how hypnotherapy can help. We will present the evidence base to our first discussions with new clients, the initial consultation, how we can use the latest neuroscience findings to create the best therapeutic working environment, how EEG shows us what goes on in the brain during trance and concludes with how the science of psychoneuroimmunology explains the link between our mental health and our physical health.

Learning Objectives: 1. To understand how the brain works and why our clients are feeling angry, anxious or sad. Using the latest neuroscience findings to explain to our clients why they feel the way they do and what we can do about it.
2. To understand the importance of the ‘meet and greet’ phase of our appointments, using our knowledge of mirror neurons to help our clients feel welcome, why day-dreaming can bring about eureka moments in therapy and how trance can accelerate positive change.
3. To understand the role of different brain waves and how the use of EEG (electroencephalogram) technology can show us what is happening to the brain during trance.
4. To understand how the mind and body is connected through the scientific field of psychoneuroimmunology and how hypnotherapy is perfectly situated to improve both our psychological health and our physical wellbeing.

Course Structure: This course is delivered over two days and can be attend as a full weekend or you can choose to attend just one day. On day one we will cover the evidence base to our first discussions with new clients, the initial consultation and how we can use the latest neuroscience findings to create the best therapeutic working environment.

⭐ 8th June 2019 – Psychosexual Issues Impacting Men – One Day CPD Workshop

CPD Event title: 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 support men with them.
Talking about sex is not easy for many of us, it can often be awkward and embarrassing, certainly for clients. However, psychosexual issues are having an ever-increasing impact on men’s mental health and wellbeing 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 Course will commence at 10.00 am and complete at approximately 4.30pm. There will be a break for lunch when we will serve a delicious buffet lunch.

CPD Event title: EMDR for Hypnotherapists

Brief Description Of Event: This workshop is designed for hypnotherapists and talking therapists to use EMDR approaches within their therapy practice. EMDR works very well within a hypnotherapy practice.

Originally designed to help address traumatic memories, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) facilitates the accessing, processing and resolving of disturbing memories and unpleasant life experiences, whilst addressing negative beliefs and unwanted body sensations about past and future events and promoting supportive positive beliefs.

Learning Objectives: Participants will gain practical and theoretical understanding of how to use EMDR techniques and principles within their hypnotherapy practice.

Course Structure: This highly practical workshop discusses the theory of trauma, PTSD perspectives and the processing of disturbance. It then explores a range of EMDR techniques and approaches including,

• Assessing contra-indications
• Preparation and information gathering
• Metaphors for EMDR
• Working with SUD and VOC scales
• Using bilateral stimulation and eye movements (finger sweep, clicks and taps)
• Bilateral stimulation using technology
• Processing images, beliefs, emotions and sensations
• Working through blocks and loops

⭐ 11th May 2019 – Integrated Parts Therapy

CPD Event title: Integrated Parts Therapy

Brief Description Of Event: Integrated parts therapy workshops teach students how to resolve client’s problems by helping them learn more about the “ Parts” causing their symptoms.

These “Parts” are represented in many ways. Techniques will be demonstrated, using hypnotherapy, that help the client become aware of these parts. They can be updated to be of help to the client, creating calmness and confidence rather than symptoms and concern.

Learning Objectives: The therapeutic procedure follows a number of steps—
1 Discussing the emotion causing the symptoms the client wants changed.
2 Learning about the emotion in the terms of the “Inner World” (unconscious).
3 Using” Clean Language,” light hypnosis and imagination, to help the client find the “parts” that make up this emotion.
For example the feeling may be anger, felt in the chest as a black hole.
4 help the client learn about this feeling and change it to one that is more comfortable, such as a blue sky.

Course Structure: Important aspects of therapy will be discussed and demonstrated in detail.

Skills such as attentive listening; empathy; body language; guiding the client to their inner world; clean language; learning to communicate with troublesome parts—characters, symbols or metaphors; talking to feelings and many more.
Students will have time to practise these skills during the workshop

Handouts will be provided describing all the techniques used.

C.P.D certificates will be given for the workshop.
