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?

Things Money Simply Cannot Buy

Job satisfaction is such a major component of becoming a hypnotherapist. I got a phone call from the parents of a young chap who had a quite traumatic incident one day and was trapped in a train carriage for a period of time.

things money can't buySince then he struggled to go anywhere where there were doors that closed behind him. It was so bad that he couldn’t even make it through the office front door first time he saw me.

I didn’t have the heart to charge anything like full price and the end result was far better than money ever could have been.

SO how did this young lad get back on buses and trains again?

The first thing we did was go for a walk with his mum and him round to the local park where we talked about football. I asked him who his favourite players were and what position he played. I told him how rubbish I was and how I still try to play, he thought this was quite funny.

Signed up

Next time I saw him was a home visit we talked more about football. I got him to pretend that he was watching a game and the manager looked into the crowd and picked him out to come on a substitute. The crowd was singing his name as he scored an equaliser, and then the winner for his team.

He imagined the manager then asking him to sign a contract. The challenge was he had to go to a strange office to do it……..The next week he was happy to come to my office even if I had to leave the door wide open initially. The look of pride on his face when he showed his parents that he could shut himself in the office was worth so much more than money.

Later on, we walked to the train station which happens to be the end of a branch line. I spoke to the guard asking if he could step on and off the train to get used to it whilst the train was waiting at the station.

All in all, I saw him about four times.

Next thing I knew he was getting on and off trains and buses, going to new buildings and being a normal happy boy again.

Did I charge a fortune? No… over a period of 4 hours I charged less than I would for a full session under normal circumstances. Was it worth it? You bet it was – the letter in the post was better than anything money could buy.
