The impact of Covid-19 on Hypnotherapy Training by CPHT Stoke

If you are considering a hypnotherapy training course, you may be worried about the Covid-19 situation. You may be concerned that if it is held online, it may not be as effective as a face to face course. We decided to answer seven of the most popular questions here, to reassure your concerns.

Will the next training course be an online course due to Covid-19?

When we get the go-ahead from the Government, our course will return to being run as a face-to-face course as originally planned. This will be held in Trent House, Business Lodge, Stoke. However, at the moment we are not completely sure when that will be, so we are preparing for both eventualities. As the next course doesn’t start until March 2021. We are hopeful that we will be seeing students in person for the majority of the course, if not all of it.

Surely an online course won’t be as good as a face-to face course?

Live Video Conferencing

It’s important to make the distinction between an online course and a live video conference. When most people talk about an online course, they usually refer to having access to a number of videos that can be viewed online, at a time to suit them. There would normally be some written material to go with the videos and very little practical work. The tutors of CPHT Stoke, Jenny and Caron have been running CPHT Leeds during the Covid-19 pandemic. This has given them experience with the interactive  video conferencing platform, Zoom. Both tutors are available to answer your questions at all times during the weekend. We do everything that we would normally do in our face-to-face training sessions. This includes demonstrating the skills you will need and watching you practice those skills with fellow students. The weekend modules are very practical, full of variety, fun and entertaining.

How can the students practice the skills on each other in a video conference?

Zoom offers a break-out room facility. This enables us to pair students together to practice their skills. Caron and Jenny, the tutors, are able to pop into each room to see how you’re getting on and to offer  advice.

Will the qualification be considered as good as it would have been, had I attended the course in person?

The short answer is yes. At the start of the pandemic, CPHT got in touch with the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH). They were already in discussions with the Complementary & National Healthcare Council (CNHC). The NCH and CNHC are actively involved in shaping the standards and future of hypnotherapy in the UK. Both organisations have granted dispensation to all those courses being run during the Covid-19 outbreak to be held online. They have assured us that graduates during this time will obtain the same level of accreditation as those who have attended face-to-face training sessions previously.

You say that there will be a lot of variety, but we’ll be staring at a screen for two full days at a time, that can’t be fun surely?

Our face-to-face sessions use a variety of teaching styles to hold the attention of the students. As any good quality course would do. The same practice applies to our online sessions. We incorporate a mix of video, power point, lecturer-led and small group activities for the students.  This is supplemented by practical work between modules. This is just as it would be were we to meet in person. Breaks are held at regular intervals, to allow students to get up and move around. 

Will the course be any cheaper if it is held online?

The price of the course is to enable you to take advantage of obtaining the two qualifications on offer with CPHT Stoke. The DSFH (Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy) and the HPD (Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma). We know that some of our costs will reduce if a course is held  online, while other costs will inevitably increase. You, however, will probably find it cheaper & less time-consuming to attend training via a live video conference. This is due to less traveling with potentially fewer accommodation costs.

Have you held a course online like this before?

Yes, the previous CPHT Leeds training course (LS4) started out with students attending a local venue, as had always been the case before the Covid-19 situation. After module 7 we had to move to live video conference sessions using Zoom. After some initial trepidation on hearing that we would need to move to online training, the students fully embraced the experience. They were heard to state after the module that it had been just as good as if they attended the module in person. The current Leeds course(LS5) is currently online but hopes to move to face to face sessions shortly.

 

 

 

How does change begin?

When faced with a problem, how do we begin to change? Attempting to solve any problem starts with understanding why it is happening. There is plenty of research to show that when clients understand that they can change, they do so more quickly, than those that don’t. During the initial consultation, Solution Focused Hypnotherapists, explain how the brain works.  During this simple and accurate explanation, we cover how and why we suffer from mental health issues. This forms the basis and understandinTime for change, Change your career, Change your life, New start, CPHT Stoke Hypnotherapy Trainingg that helps to bring about effective  change.

The mind is enormously complex, as we all know. A human brain has 100 billion neurons and 20,000 synaptic connections. These are bathed in multiple neurotransmitters. It’s difficult to imagine the sheer volume of interactions that go on. In fact one small factor  could contribute to a mental health problem.  Understandably, it may be hard to find.. However, as Hypnotherapists, we can tip the system towards the positive. A small seemingly inconsequential action can lead to a successful improvement of the illness. It can all start with a small change in behaviour. It could start with a depressed person deciding to go for a bike ride. After a while he begins going regularly and his appetite increases. As a result his sleeping improves and he feels stronger, mentally and physically.

We see a steadily increasing improvement in our clients.  People return to work feeling better. They begin to interact socially again and become more active. Some even jump on planes that they have been avoiding for years. Most importantly people start to cope with all that they have to handle.

 

Hypnotherapy makes a difference, we make a difference.

Training as a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist

When I decided to train as a hypnotherapist, I was amazed at the variety of schools that were available.  The choice was overwhelming. How did I know which school would equip me best for a career as a hypnotherapist? I decide to write down all the things I wanted from my ideal school.

I wanted the best quality training. It needed to be fully accredited and be nationally recognised.  I hoped that I could find a course that focused on finding solutions to people’s issues as I didn’t want to be counselling people. Importantly, I wanted to feel confident that at the end of the training, I could be successful, both clinically and financially. It needed to run at weekends as I was working full time. I also hoped that I’d be able to pay for the course monthly.

After the first weekend I knew I had made the right decision, I couldn’t wait for the next weekend. The students came from a wide range of different backgrounds. The ages of the students varied too. The goals for my fellow students varied with some hoping to practice part time and others full time.  I love that I am still in touch with many of my fellow students.  As the weeks passed I felt fully supported not only by the lecturer but by other students in the group. We were encouraged from the very beginning to begin practicing on our family and friends. I never realised I had so many friends in need of relaxation!

Training to be a hypnotherapist with CPHT Stoke builds confidence.

This practical foundation was crucial in building my confidence.  The recommendation is to see 5 people a week, which I did. The results that I saw with my ‘clients’ were astounding. Friends sleeping better, family members feeling calmer and less stressed. My weight loss sessions with a group of lovely ladies often got lively at times. We all had a lot of fun and the ladies lost weight too. The change was not only apparent in the people I saw, I noticed a change in myself too. As a result my confidence and competence grew.

The evidence based knowledge on the course was also key for me.  I needed to understand the science behind what we did. It was important to me that I was doing what worked with my clients. I was reassured to find that the information we give to our clients is current, accurate and based on a proven methodology.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy works, I see it every day.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy has made a difference to the many hundreds of people I have seen . It has changed my life too. I have a successful business, I can organise my work time to suit my life. As a result, my passion for hypnotherapy has continued to grow.

If you would like to find out more call Jenny on 07748 511841. She would be delighted to hear from you. The next training course  starts in March 2021 at the Trent House, Business Lodge, Stoke.
