Would I make a good hypnotherapist, and would I enjoy it?

Let me tell you a short story about a client:

Let me tell you a short story about a client: Anxiety can manifest itself in different ways. For one of my clients,  this manifested around her throat causing pain and distress.

She came to me for hypnotherapy because she was anxious and depressed. She regularly spent hours analysing why her father left the family when she was a child.

Before coming to see me she had seen several medical specialists, none of whom had be able to diagnose an underlying medical problem. She was worried that she would have to live with this for the rest of her life.

During our sessions, I combined hypnotherapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). The Hypnotherapy allowed her to fall into a deep state of rest during which I taught her a technique to relax the muscles in her throat.

After the exercise, she stroked her neck and said that the feeling she had felt for over a decade had gone!

This was not a one-off thing either. She learnt to use that technique when she felt her throat tightening. I also taught her a quick technique that stopped her dwelling on the past. The combination improved her mental state dramatically.

Why am I sharing this with you?

Well, because with the New Year approaching, you are more than likely thinking about the changes you want to make. Many people think about saving, getting fitter, healthy eating, or getting our more.

You might be considering something much bigger – a complete career change. And since you have come to us, you are considering hypnotherapy.

You might be wondering if you would enjoy being a hypnotherapist? There is no point switching to a new career unless it fulfils you.

If you have never practiced hypnotherapy it can be difficult to tell whether you would like doing it day in, day out.

Over the past decade delivering training courses, I have seen a pattern in the types of people who thrive as hypnotherapists. These are the those that like to help people make positive changes in their life. They are interested in what makes people tick and love to watch them develop and grow. They often say that friends/family turn to them for support when they have a problem.

When you train and become a hypnotherapist, you gain the skills to help people solve problems, like the one mentioned above, that they thought we unsolvable.

If you have ever wondered whether a career in hypnotherapy is for you, simply ask yourself:

Is this the level of impact I’d like to have on someone’s life?

Testimonial Mark Redfearn ~ Chris Fleet's Devon School Of Hypnotherapy. Mark gained a Diploma In Hypnotherapy & now has started his own Hypnotherapy business
.
Our Mark Redfearn Hypnotherapy Case Study is an inspiring story describing how despite having to look after his son at home, he managed to study and pass the Diploma In Hypnotherapy Training Course with a high grade and then go onto start his own successful hypnotherapy business alongside his other taxi driving business.
.

It Was Just Before Christmas

It was just before Christmas, a couple of years ago, and Mark rang to say he was interested in learning about hypnotherapy and hypnosis and to learn how it could help people with life affecting conditions.
But, before signing up on our course, he wanted to know more about the training and how it would work.
Meeting in a nice pub and, over a pint, we discussed the Diploma In Hypnotherapy Course and I was able to answer all his questions.
The Diploma course comprises 10 modules over 10 months and Mark, due to life pressures, had one major concern about missing a module, or part of the course, and whether he would be able to catch up. He also enquired about further training after the course finished.
But, more than anything, though, I think he wanted to make sure I was someone he could get on with.
That is a massive thing for anyone considering a training course.
If you don’t like or get on with your trainer then it’s going to be a tough time for both the trainee and the trainer.

.

Mark Is A Single Parent

Mark is a single parent and this responsibility limited his working hours around school hours and school terms.
At the time of our meeting, he was working as a taxi driver and as a trained masseuse. Both allowed him to work flexibly around bringing up his son.
We discussed the possibility of adding hypnotherapy into his working week; the fact that Mark would be able to earn an extra £120 a week, just for seeing a couple of clients per week certainly seemed appealing to him.
But, above all else, he liked the idea of helping other people improve their lives and he could see hypnotherapy as a great way of doing just that.
He is that sort of person.

.

Mark Signed Up For The Course

He signed up for the Diploma In Hypnotherapy Course and he took to it straight away.
It was obvious after the first weekend that it was something that his demeanour and manner was well suited to. He has a calm and a relaxed nature and, above all, he is someone you feel you could trust.
Following a good start, Mark started to encounter a few problems.
Part way through the second module, Mark received a phone call saying that his son had been taken ill. Mark had to leave half way through the first day of the module.
The next day he returned but, unfortunately, he was called away again.
From a technical point of view, that is not necessarily a problem because the minimum classroom hours required for the full Diploma In Hypnotherapy Course is 120 hours and our course includes a minimum of 160 hours.
But from a practical point of view, Mark was missing a vital part of the training.

.

Mark Is Not The First Person To Have Experienced This Problem

Mark is not the first person to experience this problem and he will not be the last.
It is easy to fix.
At The Devon School Of Hypnotherapy, if we know that someone is going to be absent for one day of a module, we can include the practical part of the training into the day that they are present and they can catch up on the theory later.
Alternatively, if they are going to be away for the whole module, then I am happy to catch up with them 1-2-1 training, at a later time (obviously within reason).
We helped Mark catch by coming in extra, one evening. He lives about 15 miles from the School, so this was possible.
For anyone, living further away, it is possible to carry out the training via Skype.
.

Mark Considered Deferring The Course

At one stage, Mark’s home life was getting in the way of his training and he even considered deferring the course for a year.
But thankfully, he decided to carry on and, after a while, he began to fly through the course.
He just got it.
.

He Has Common Sense And Desire To Help Others

In many ways, he is similar to me; neither of us are straight ‘A’ grade University students (I spent my early working years on building sites), but we both have common sense and a desire to help others.
These ingredients are fundamentally important and, with these in place, the course then becomes relatively simple.
The penultimate module of the course consists of a practical text.
Mark was very calm and relaxed in a situation which may have phased a more competent hypnotherapist, but he passed both sets of exams (practical and written) with ease, scoring more than 90%.
.

Mark Is Doing Well Now

Routinely, I like to catch up with students on a regular basis and recently he told me he was doing very well as a fully qualified hypnotherapist.
He is still working as a taxi driver BUT now instead of using his taxi service just as a means of income, he is using it as a means to advertise his hypnotherapy skills and to spread the word about his new business …
Meeting many people gives him the ability and opportunity to say “Hi, I’m xxxxx … and I’ve just trained as a hypnotherapist”
Approximately one third of the population will have no interest, one third won’t care, but one third will be fascinated and intrigued.
It’s that 33% that may spread the word about him and may even use his services.

.

Mark Is On His Way To Cracking It.

I’m confident that in a short space of time, more and more people will become aware of his hypnotherapy services and he will reach a tipping point where he earns more money doing his part time job than his full-time job.

When your part time job is something that you love and pays more than your full time job, you know you’ve cracked it ...

Final Word From Chris Fleet

Mark, like many students, did find parts of the Diploma In Hypnotherapy Course challenging, particularly when he had to miss parts due to his son not being well.  But he was able to catch up and ultimately flourished, finishing with a good grade.

 

The Courses Are Designed To Allow Time For The Students

The courses are designed to be flexible when students find certain parts challenging and even when time is lost due to personal circumstances, as in Mark's case.
The big advantage of studying in a small group, everyone works to support each other.
My goal is always to make sure everyone can work successfully towards to gaining their qualification, whatever their personal circumstances are.

Liz Hornby Gained A Certificate In Hypnotherapy & A Diploma In Hypnotherapy

Before Starting Her Own Hypnotherapy Practice

.
Liz Hornby studied hypnotherapy at The Devon School Of Hypnotherapy.  She gained both the Certificate and Diploma In Hypnotherapy.
She subsequently went on to open her own Hypnotherapy Practice, EH Therapy in Maidenhead, Berkshire and now specialises in Hypnotherapy and Reiki.
This is her story, as written by Hypnotherapist Chris Fleet.

 

“I cannot recommend this course, and Chris, highly enough. If you are in any doubt, go along to the taster (Certificate In Hypnotherapy) weekend because I’ll bet you anything you will find yourself wanting to take things further”

Liz Hornby

 

Liz and I have ‘almost’ known each other for decades through mutual friends.

A few years ago, one of our mutual friends attended a self-hypnosis workshop that I was running at The Devon School Of Hypnotherapy Training and she brought Liz along too.
Subsequent to that event, we stayed in touch as Liz was considering a change of career and wanted to work with people rather than having an office-based administration job.
After much deliberation, Liz opted to train as a counsellor, as working in a practical vocation helping other people appealed to her. But having studied for a year, she didn’t feel as though the treatments she was being trained for were ‘offering solutions’ to her clients.
She started to look at alternative treatments that would be more aligned to her personal mission of wanting to help people improve their lives.

 

Liz Attended My Certificate In Hypnotherapy Training Course

Liz decided to attend my Certificate In Hypnotherapy Course weekend and living 200 miles away stayed in a delightful Bed & Breakfast, a short distance from Paignton seafront and convenient for The Devon School Of Hypnotherapy.
She passed the course and gained her Certificate and decided she wanted to continue her training to become a professional hypnotherapist.
The Certificate is the equivalent of Module 1 of the 10 Module Diploma In Hypnotherapy Course, a requirement in order to work as a professional hypnotherapist.

Liz Hornby, Hypnotherapist, E H Therapy, Hypnotherapy & Reiki

 

“When I’d weighed everything up I decided that I had nothing to lose in attending his ‘taster weekend’ (Certificate In Hypnotherapy) in February last year. I can only sum up the weekend in one word – “Wow”. I knew, finally, that I’d found something I could do as I seemed to ‘get it’ quite quickly”

Liz Hornby

 

Having To Travel 200 Miles To Attend The Course Was A Consideration

Living in the South-East, the extra cost of travel to Devon plus accommodation, in addition to the course fees was a big consideration.
There were plenty of alternative Diploma In Hypnotherapy Training Courses available locally to her, but none of them seemed to offer the same comprehensive practical and theory content and all were more expensive.
After much research, she concluded that my Diploma In Hypnotherapy course at The Devon School Of Hypnotherapy was still cheaper, offered much better value and much superior content to the local alternatives.

 

Liz Took The Plunge And Signed Up

Liz signed up to the course and very quickly grew into it, flourishing as she learned more.
There were parts of the course that she found challenging, but she had plenty of help from myself and her fellow students.
One of the big benefits of working in a small class is everyone supports each other, and the help, guidance and encouragement she gained propelled her forward, through the challenges and her confidence grew rapidly.
Then came the practical and theoretical tests at the end of the course.

 

Liz Had A Phobia About Exams

Liz has always had a phobia about exams and was becoming more and more agitated as the tests grew nearer.
One of the advantages of doing this course is that MUCH practical work is included which involves the students working together; this enabled the other students to support Liz and to help her overcome her fear of exams.

 

The Whole Class Did Well

The whole class did very well … Module 9 involves a practical exam where members of the public come in for a supervised hypnotherapy session with the students.
Despite her initial nerves, Liz achieved a high score, here, of approximately 90{a84c90e7fc8742d8765d24ae64afde7c8c5e680d430ae1de696d39ef38fdeab2}.

Then The Final Module

The next month was the final module where everything learned throughout the course comes together.
Having driven down to Paignton the day before, rather than on the day, she was well rested for the final exam.
Now, I am delighted to report that she flew through the exam with her combined score exceeding 90{a84c90e7fc8742d8765d24ae64afde7c8c5e680d430ae1de696d39ef38fdeab2}, making her the highest (just) scoring student in the class.

 

Liz Is Now Working Professionally As A Hypnotherapist

Using her Diploma In Hypnotherapy has allowed her to work professionally in her home town of Maidenhead, successfully offering Hypnotherapy and Reiki.
As part of my Diploma In Hypnotherapy Training, I offer full post-course support and advice and Liz has taken full advantage of this, seeking vital advice and support on:
  • how to start and run a new business
  • business planning
  • securing clients in a niche market place.
  • dealing with clients.
Amongst other aspects.

 

Initially Her New Business Generated A Second Income

Her new business was set up alongside her main career and with a growing list of new clients, she is now able to reduce the number of hours she works on her ‘day job’ 
The business, known as E H Therapy, now boasts its own website www.ehtherapy.uk, reaching out to potential clients and is taking off well, starting to provide a good ‘second income’ for her.

 

“Sometimes I still can’t believe I now have a Diploma with letters after my name! My best friend, who is also a mutual friend of Chris’s, commented that when I talked about the training with Chris, there was a lot of passion in my voice. That’s all down to Chris who has passed on his passion for hypnotherapy to us all and, for that, I thank him”

Liz Hornby

 

I Am Certain She Will Go On To Great Things

Liz has already worked with a celebrity to great effect and being a person who people naturally will go to for help, she makes me think that there is little doubt that she will go on to achieve great things.

 

I Can Personally Recommend Her Services

If there is anyone in the Maidenhead area who is looking for a very astute and professional hypnotherapist then please give Liz a shout out at liz@ehtherapy.uk.

Final Word From Chris Fleet

Liz did find parts of the Diploma In Hypnotherapy Course challenging and she struggled with her phobia for exams, but the one big advantage of studying the course in a small group is the mutual support everyone receives, not just from myself but also from the other students. 
In the end, she excelled, finishing top of the class.

 

The Courses Are Designed To Allow Time For The Students

Parts of the courses can be challenging but they are designed to allow time for students to grasp even the most challenging concepts included.

“I loved the course and Chris was highly supportive and learner centred. At times I found it challenging, in a good way, as Chris has high standards and suddenly all my learning clicked into place”  

Alison De Matos

.

Hypnotherapy Was New For Alison

Hypnotherapy and hypnosis was completely new to Alison.  Previously she had a background of corporate management working for the British Red Cross. 
Prior to attending The Devon School Of Hypnotherapy, Alison did her homework, researching hypnotherapy and hypnosis extensively and the courses that were available. She said she chose course as was impressed by the contents and the qualification gained. 
.

Alison Took The Certificate In Hypnotherapy Course

Alison was a little nervous, initially, but she was also very excited to be attending her first hypnotherapy training class. 
She took and passed the Certificate In Hypnotherapy Course.
This is essentially a ‘taster’ course and an introduction to hypnotherapy.  It also forms the first module for the accredited Diploma In Hypnotherapy Course.
The content for this Course involves both written theory and practical work.  As part of the practical work, students are taught how to put others into hypnosis and Alison learned how to achieve this, but I am sure she will not mind me saying that she did not set the world alight.
Alison also found some of the written theory work challenging but she showed determination and gained her certificate.
Learning hypnosis and hypnotherapy was completely different to the management world that she had worked in previously and I had the strong feeling that she would not wish to pursue any further training in hypnotherapy.

 

I Was Wrong

I was, however, very pleasantly surprised when Alison said that she wanted to continue and take the full Diploma In Hypnotherapy Course.
Like the Certificate course, the Diploma Course contains a combination of theory and practical work.  The initial modules are also relatively easy.
For the third module, pupils are asked to use their own imagination and initiative for some of hypnotherapy concepts.
Alison has a great imagination and much initiative, but she initially found some concepts a challenge to grasp.
One vital part of the hypnotherapy training is known as ‘fork in the path’ but, I think it is fair to say, that she struggled initially with this concept.
We talked this concept through, we walked it through, we drew it on the board and repeated it over and again – and then it fell into place.
The effort was worth it.
That was a turning point …

Alison Started To Flourish

Suddenly, Alison began to flourish, her voice became more confident, her body language subtly changed. She became a star pupil and whatever concept we put to her, she got it.
On gaining her Diploma In Hypnotherapy, she decided that she did not just want to work as a professional hypnotherapist but she started her own practice in Dawlish, Devon.
In the process of starting her own business, she sourced good offices to work from, built a professional looking website and has been busy networking with health professionals throughout the area.

.

Alison Specialises In Weight Loss

Alison now specialises in weight loss hypnotherapy and has people travel to see her specifically for weight loss.
She has also studied other talking therapies such as counselling and CBT and she has already earned back her investment in the course and is fast becoming well known in the area for the work she does.
And, for those not living locally in Devon, she now offers her hypnotherapy services via skype.

.

" ... A course outline is just words unless the content is delivered by a trainer who can bring a course alive, with rich experience, interesting and exciting content and most importantly get the best out of their learners in a supportive, encouraging way. I highly recommend this course as it exceeded all my expectations."      Ali De Matos
