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 Stoke, they are Jenny Mellenchip & Caron Iley.

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

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 are 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?

To qualify for the DSFH in module 10, you need to have attended all the modules. You will also need to have completed all the practical assessments.  As a result you will be able to begin your career as a self-employed hypnotherapist straight away. 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.

Why Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is based on the latest research

As Solution Focused Hypnotherapists, research is very important to us. We want to know that what we are doing with our clients really does work. So, if new evidence becomes available that suggests we need to change the way we work, then we will. Equally, there is good quality evidence to suggest that the Solution Focused approach is effective when used with hypnosis.

The scientific area of Neuroscience is steadily releasing the brain’s secrets. An organ of the body that was once considered to be of little importance. In the 4th century BC, Aristotle thought that the brain was a cooling mechanism for the blood. He also thought that the heart was the seat of intelligence. We have come a long way since then!

As Solution Focused Hypnotherapists (SFH) we base what we do on the latest brain research & neuroscience. Our aim is to help clients get back to being their true selves. At CPHT Stoke we make sure that our students understand the importance of research. How it helps us to become better therapists.  Everything within the course can be backed up by the latest research and neuroscientific endeavour.

National Research Programme

CPHT Stoke is part of a National research programme. This programme is called CORP or Clifton Practice Outcome Ratings Programme.

All our students are encouraged to take part in CORP. The majority of the first year membership cost is included in the course fees. It is the largest research programme of its type within the UK. CORP is designed to gather information on the effectiveness of SFH. However, it also reinforces the hypnotherapy sessions for the client in a positive & unobtrusive way. As a result, students and clients can observe their progress based on the client’s own figures. Obviously, this can be incredibly reassuring. Students can also see their improvement as they work with members of the public. There are many hypnotherapists now using CORP. It has amassed in excess of 25,000 hypnotherapy sessions to date. This gives students the wonderful ability to compare the progress of their clients against those of other hypnotherapists.

So train for a new career as a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist and be part of this ground-breaking research programme. Give Jenny a call today on 07748 511841. The next CPHT Stoke course starts in March 2021 at Trent House, Stoke.

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.
