⭐ 12th March 2020 (1 day) – Insight Coaching Masterclass

CPD Event title: Insight Coaching Masterclass

Brief Description Of Event: There is evidence to suggest that some clients seek coaching for support in their lives, to be listened to and understood. However, therapists and coaches are predominantly seeking to assist clients in achieving a change. Changes are possible when a moment of insight occurs. This change is owned by the client but the therapist/coach leads the process. It is a wonderful moment when the client states “that’s right” or “ahhh, I get it”. These events are called Aha, magic or significant moments. Did you know, there are In fact many different terms to describe this moment but no solid definition of what they are. Although this moment of awareness and insight is significant, coaches and therapists should understand what happens at this moment and what this means for the dyad relationship, indeed the change outcome? Can we as change agents force more significant moments? In this masterclass, I will be bringing all the theory and learning from my cutting edge doctoral study into insight in coaching events. This class will help you develop your insight coaching so you can be even more effective and in time more successful!

Learning Objectives: By the end of this masterclass you will:

Understand how to identify significant, insight moments in conversation, coaching and therapy.
Understand the impact of insight moments on both coach/therapist and client.
Develop your insight coaching skill set.
Develop an insight listening skill set.

Course Structure: Limited to 6 delegates, this exclusive masterclass event is being held in the heart of the magnificent New Forest at the Bartley Lodge Hotel in Lyndhurst. The day will begin with coffee at 9am and will consist of lectures, seminars and coaching practice in order to implement the theory. The day will close at 5pm.

Complimentary refreshments and lunch are included.

⭐ 24th October 2019 – Using Ericksonian Hypnotherapy for Depression

CPD Event title: Using Ericksonian Hypnotherapy for Depression

Brief Description Of Event: Would you like to learn some new ways to work with depression? Using basic hypnotherapy for depression is not always advisable; however, it IS possible to use hypnotherapy with depression provided that it is done in a creative way, in a way that empowers the depressed individual. For this Hypno-training Webinar I have created four Ericksonian scripts that are designed to intervene in specific aspects of a typically depressed state. Each of the scripts is designed to allow change to take place within the client’s sub-conscious in a subtle and meaningful way,using the creative powers of the sub-conscious. The scripts use a combination of Ericksonian language patterns, metaphors, reframes, conversational hypnosis and indirect suggestions to lead the client into a different frame of mind. They can be used both as stand-alone scripts or in conjunction with other therapy techniques. Each of the scripts is over 2,000 words long and chunks down the experience of depression into individual elements that allow the subconscious to work to resolve the varying components that typically make up depression.

Learning Objectives: The aim of the online course is for therapists, having attended the webinar, to be able to use the scripts to help clients with depression, and to have a deeper understanding of ways to work with depression in the hypnotic framework. During the live webinar Steve will also be sharing with you information about how to work with depression as well as analysing the scripts and their various aspects. You’ll have chance to ask questions as we go along, and you will learn some in-depth knowledge in order to help your clients to heal from a problem which affects so many people in the world.

Course Structure: A live webinar lasting approximately 90 minutes – 2 hours. Starts at 7 pm. A replay link will be available shortly after the broadcast if you are unable to attend on the night.

19th October 2019 (1 days) – When the World Makes Less sense Than It Should: A Positive Psychology Approach to Activating Strengths and Meaning to Leverage Growth

CPD Event title: When the World Makes Less sense Than It Should: A Positive Psychology Approach to Activating Strengths and Meaning to Leverage Growth

Brief Description Of Event: One of the correlates of difficult moments in our lives is that a sense of coherence disappears. We are shocked by what has happened (this appears to be a global issue at this time), or sometimes disappointed in our own choices (that middle-of-the-night difficult assessment of where we seem to have ended up). We may be confronted with situations far out of our control (such as illness or loss of work) or simply aware that the structures or accomplishments that had once made sense to us no longer cohere. We feel lost, discouraged, uncertain, angry and/or weary – and in those states find it difficult to activate resilience. In our day-long exploration of the practices/perspectives of positive psychology we will highlight two: the importance of crafting and re-crafting meaning and the application of character strengths. We’ll examine these in light of the latest research on building internal capacity in order to navigate change with clarity and courage, and we’ll consider how both contribute to greater health within ourselves and in our relationships.

Learning Objectives: Attendees will leave understanding the importance of character strengths and how to integrate them into their practice.

Course Structure: There will be an interactive mix of teaching and exercises.

⭐ 8th December 2019 (1 days) – Pain management for hypnotherapists

CPD Event title: Pain management for hypnotherapists

Brief Description Of Event: This workshop gives participants an opportunity to explore the theory and practice of pain management using a range of hypnotherapy approaches and learning how to promote self- management and self-care beyond the hypnotherapy session, thus empowering the client.

The emergence of the ‘biopsychosocial’ model offers a broader range of treatment and management options, including hypnotherapy. As chronic pain is estimated to affect between one-third and one-half of the population of the UK, hypnotherapists will benefit from having a range of pain management tools to work with both chronic and acute pain. The American Psychological Association, consider hypnotherapy is likely to be effective for most people suffering from diverse forms of pain.

• Classifications and types of pain
• Assessing and describing pain
• Emotional influences on pain
• Coping strategies and secondary gains
• Conventional and contemporary management models and treatment

• Promoting self-management: client tasks and activities (homework)
• Case studies
