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?
