Is hypnotherapy training expensive?

It is easy to look at the price of any training course and compare it against the cost of other courses. However, if you are trying to decide whether hypnotherapy training is expensive, there are several things to consider. If you are looking to start a new career as a self-employed hypnotherapist, the most important point to consider is how well will it equip you for that future career?

Are you encouraged to practice  on people with real conditions?

To become confident with any new skill we must practice it repeatedly. Typically, newly qualified CPHT Stoke students will have at least 200 hypnotherapy hours under their belt. They will see their anxious volunteers become much more relaxed. Their clients may lose weight or stop smoking. This is because students use the tried and tested techniques seen demonstrated in class. Ideal for helping them to become competent and confident in their craft.

Are your tutors available between modules to help support you?

If you learn something new, it is likely that you will have questions. When practicing new skills between modules, CPHT Stoke students are given support if they need it. They may need guidance as they help their clients. Some may need help to answer questions in the portfolio. Regardless of their needs, the tutors of CPHT Stoke are available to answer their questions.

What are the qualifications of your tutors? Are they still in practice?

When a tutor has their own practice, they are more likely to be up to date with the latest information. They will be familiar with issues facing self-employed hypnotherapists. The tutor will understand how best to market their business. Students can learn a lot by listening to tutors talk confidentially about their own cases. There are 2 permanent senior lecturers at CPHT Leeds, they are Jenny Mellenchip & Caron Iley.

Jenny Mellenchip has her own busy hypnotherapy practice in Stafford and online. Jenny is a qualified to hypnotherapy supervisor.  She has held the AHD (Advanced Hypnotherapy Diploma), the highest hypnotherapy qualification in the UK for over 2 years.

Caron Iley is an award-winning hypnotherapist with a very busy practice in Bolton and online. Caron is a qualified hypnotherapy supervisor. She is currently studying towards the AHD.

At CPHT Stoke we also believe it is important to bring in other lecturers occasionally. These lecturers tend to be experts in their field and help to provide variety for the students.

Will the course teach you the basics of running a business?

You can be great at what you do, but if nobody knows who you are, how will people find you? Marketing is an essential ingredient of the CPHT course. Course tutor, Jenny, is able to draw on her previous sales and marketing experience to give the students a good grounding in effective marketing. At CPHT Stoke, we also cover some basic accounting and data protection. These are both vital areas for students approaching self-employment for the first time.

Does the course allow you to pay as you learn?

When retraining for a new career money can be tight. We know it can be hard to come up with a lump sum to invest in your future career. This can be particularly difficult at the beginning of a training course. As you can’t yet see a return on your investment. At CPHT Stoke we understand this. We want to make it as easy as possible for you. After acceptance on the course, we ask for a deposit. This is followed by 9 further payments paid from modules 1 to 9. This spreads the cost of the course over 10 months. Thus making it more easily affordable for students.

One benefit of the CPHT Stoke course is that from module 7, you can start charging half price for your sessions with clients. This gives you the chance to earn back the cost of the course before you qualify in module 10. Students often do just that!

Are the qualifications nationally recognised and if so to what level?

It can be frustrating to attend a hypnotherapy training course and pay out good money, only to find that the course has been a waste of time. Make sure that the qualifications are nationally recognised. It is important that they are also accredited by the relevant awarding bodies.

There are two qualifications you can achieve on the CPHT Stoke course, the DfSFH and the HPD. The DfSFH (Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy) is a full diploma. It is accredited by the AfSFH (Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy). The HPD (Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma) is accredited by the NCH (National Council for Hypnotherapy). It is also verified by NCFE as a level 4 qualification on the UK’s national vocational framework. Both qualifications enable you to join the CNHC (Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council). The CNHC is the UK voluntary regulator for complementary health practitioners.

How soon after the course is completed will I be able to go into business?

Having attended all the modules and completed all the practical assessments, you will qualify in module 10 with the DfSFH. You can then begin your career as a self-employed hypnotherapist immediately. The HPD is achieved through submitting a portfolio of evidence. The portfolio consists of questions to answer, to showcase your knowledge. It also requires case studies to show your competence. Students of CPHT Stoke can submit any part of the online portfolio during the course. Case studies are done during the course. While many other schools expect them to be done after qualification.  This is because the course allows students to practice on people with conditions. After internal & external verification, the HPD, is awarded. The HPD is considered to be the gold standard qualification in the UK.

If so, we think you will find that the course run by CPHT Stoke is great value!

Phobias, learn how to help with CPHT Stoke

Phobias, CPHT Stoke, Hypnotherapy For Phobias

Students at CPHT Stoke love helping people lose their phobias. At this time of year, they are not short of clients with a fear of flying to practice on.

Aerophobia is the scientific name for a flying phobia. It is actually on the increase even though statistics suggest that flying is the safest mode of travel.  In fact,  as many as half of us have some kind of fear around flying & air travel. Although not all of these would be classed as a full-blown phobia.

Jenny Mellenchip,  one of the Senior Lecturers for CPHT Stoke, comments ‘The fear of flying is often more about the “what might happen” rather than what actually is happening‘. These thoughts trigger a reaction in the body that causes the person to be fearful and anxious.

‘Sometimes, just providing someone with factual information can help those who are a little nervous about getting on a plane. But for those who have a severe or phobic response, another approach is needed’ 

Learning how to reduce the impact of phobias

During CPHT Stoke hypnotherapy training we teach the rewind and reframe technique.  With this technique there is no need to know when the phobia started. This is useful for those people who believe that they’ve always just had a phobia. We start by demonstrating the process on a student.  This year, student Gareth wanted to get rid of his fear of paper. During the session with Gareth, Jenny got him to visualize his preferred future. In this case, Gareth chose to imagine a future where he would be able to read a newspaper without feeling nauseous. Together with relaxation therapy, Jenny helped Gareth to see things as if real. This was done without over exaggerating the risk. As a result the pattern that led to his phobic response was broken. He returned to the room after the break, holding a piece of paper in his hands. He was thrilled.

Our Clients are often relieved to learn that there are ways to help them. Phobias are something that can often be addressed quickly. It is such a powerful technique. Click here to find out what our clients say about us.

If you would like to make such a huge difference to people’s lives, why not join us in March at  Trent House with CPHT Stoke Hypnotherapy Training. It is a wonderful learning experience and fun too. www.cphtstoke.co.uk

How do you choose a hypnotherapy training school?

If you’re looking for a Hypnotherapy Training School, first you need to decide what you want to achieve. Do you just want to learn to do self-hypnosis? What about the more flamboyant stage or street hypnosis, is that more your style? Perhaps you’d like to help others to get their lives back on track? Are you looking at this as a hobby, albeit a financially rewarding one? Do you want to change career completely or simply add to your existing skills?

Choose Hypnotherapy school, decide on hypnotherapy school, choose hypnotherapy training, decide on type of hypnotherapy training.
Which hypnotherapy school will you choose?

Once you’ve answered the questions above, you now have a better idea of what to look for in a training course. Self-hypnosis is covered at a certificate level and although it doesn’t allow you to practice as a hypnotherapist, this may be all that you need to fulfil your ambition. However, some people start out wanting to carry out self-hypnosis and then decide they want to know more. Could this be you? Then maybe the diploma course would be more appropriate? If you’re looking for stage or street hypnosis to entertain, then a diploma course is not necessary. However, confidence and a stage presence are. There are many such courses available and a quick Google search will point you in the right direction.

If you want to help others to get their lives on track by using hypnotherapy along with the latest brain based therapy, then the Solution Focused Hypnotherapy Diploma is for you. Whether you wish to use it as a hobby, work part-time, supplement existing skills in your current career or train for a brand new career, then the CPHT Stoke course offers you everything you need.
