No “free weekend” hype and no fast track 7 month learning inducements….

Just one weekend a month for 10 months… benefit first…and then you share the knowledge and your newly acquired skills to help others and give yourself the rewards that this kind of work deserves.

Just 10 months to earn your self certificates in Hypnotherapy, NLP, Smoking Cessation, Weight Management…and the General Qualification in Hypnotherapy Practice – once you have registered with the GHR.

Certification and satisfactory completion of the diploma course allow you to use the designating letters DPH, DNLP, CertSCS, and Cert WMS.

From Carl Samerson

of Minds Matter Hypnotherapy & Hypnotherapy Training Courses

(Dip Hyp GQHP, MAHA, MNCH(Reg.))

I am pleased to announce that I now offer CPD Supervision to trainee and qualified hypnotherapists during the week and at weekends here at my South Yorkshire office. All sessions are confidential and are open to anyone seeking supervision.

Regarding Supervision the GHR states:

“Newly qualified Registrants are expected to engage in this beneficial process for a minimum of 2 hours in any 3 month period during their first 2 years of practice. Thereafter, although ongoing Supervision is encouraged, it becomes a voluntary process. Supervision may be conducted via one-to-one, a peer support group or a telephone / e-mail arrangement where circumstance dictates. Whichever method is employed, Registrants are advised to maintain a personal log of all such activity as they may be asked to provide suitable evidence of the previous 12 months supervision at the time of their annual re-registration.”

I cover every aspect of hypnotherapy for weight management, stress, anxiety, confidence, fears, phobia’s, sports performance, stammering, nail biting, past lives, studying, job interviews, addictions, Meniere’s disease……anything at all.

I will also advise on specific “difficult” cases – as well as provide YOU with the chance to sit in my chair and off load anything that YOU don’t need to be carrying around with YOU in your “rucksack”..!

The business aspects / essentials of being or becoming a successful, professional hypnotherapist can also be covered including the practical aspects such as Insurance, Data Protection, banking, writing scripts and recording CD’s etc…all the way through to how to market your business and make best use of your time to make sure that you can be as successful as you want to be and help as many people as possible.

Sessions are generally:

  • To be booked at least one week in advance
  • Of 50 / 55 minutes duration
  • In person at my office, by phone or using Skype
  • Count towards your annual CPD requirements
