Training

Our aim is to teach and spread the benefits of solution-focused therapy, both in conjunction with hypnosis and as a stand-alone modality.

Testimonials

This has given me a totally different perspective on the process which will profoundly change the way I practice. 

It was such a pleasure to have a fresh and considered approach to inductions that were so effective yet performed with ease and understatement.

You delivered on all levels, a quiet, professional, and client centred approach, that was free of all the showbiz razz matazzzzz.

It was particularly impressive how the day's learning was accessible & useful for everyone from seasoned  therapists to  total hypnosis 'virgins' - which I had wondered prior to the event whether it was possible.

I really appreciated the way you have unpicked the process down to the essentials, with an understanding of what is actually in play. 

An excellent day! Sign me up for more!

If you ever need to refer a client to a therapist in the sunny south, be assured that I will be following your therapy techniques.

Many thanks for making the day so worthwhile.

What do you teach?

It is no secret that hypnotherapy has a reputation for being focused on regression and delving into the past to discover the root-cause of current problems. (Ironically, although Freud left hypnosis behind once he developed Psychoanalysis, Hypnosis seems to have a hard time moving beyond Freud!) We do not feel that such an approach is necessary. In fact, we think it can often be unproductive, perpetuating unhelpful myths and outdated methodologies.

Brief Hypnosis is grounded in evidence-based, cutting-edge approaches to therapy. Our training incorporates elements of Solution-Focused Brief Therapy and Ericksonian Hypnosis, as well as Acceptance and Committment Therapy and other Mindfulness and Acceptance Based Therapies.

In fact, even when we are working therapeutically, our sessions often feel like training! We aim to empower people by teaching them skills that will equip them to lead their lives to the full.

Who do you teach?

We provide training for therapists, teachers, social workers and others in all aspects of Brief Therapy and Solution-focused Hypnosis.

Statistically, the average attendee at our trainings is a hypnotherapist, qualified within the last 3 years, who is seeking to add to their knowledge and skill-set. However, we are also sought out by established hypnotherapists aiming to develop their practice with the addition of solution-focused tools.

Equally, our courses are attended by other therapists wanting to add hypnosis to their bag of tricks.

Additionally, the kinds of skills that we teach clients in therapy - and train hypnotherapists in - are ideal for your workplace. From Advanced Communication Skills to solution-focused practice, organisations bring us in to train-up their employees to function more effectively both in the office and the community.

Where do you teach?

So, whether you are seeking hypnosis for your own Continuing Professional Development, or are looking to bring-in training for your work place, Brief Hypnosis provides a unique contemporary solution.

Our most popular training, Therapeutic Inductions, is run from various locations throughout the UK, most regularly in West Sussex and in Northamptonshire.
