Title Date

Understanding Behaviour Styles (UBS) or enhanced success as a therapist (Online live Video conference)

Due to very popular demand we have added a second date for this CPD

Learning Outcomes:

To provide you, as a therapist, with a way of establishing rapport with clients quickly, thereby enhancing your success, both in terms of the outcomes you enable for your clients and also the likelihood of them referring you to their friends, family and colleagues in the future.

We will explore:

  • The origin and validity of behavioural styles: both the theory and the application over the years
  • Rapport: what it is, why it’s essential for enabling positive outcomes
  • The two basic principles and the one rule to apply in order to establish rapport every time
  • The three channels of communication and how to maximise our intended message depending on which ones are available to us (in person, in writing, on the phone)
  • How to identify a persons behaviour preference with ease
  • The four different behaviour styles and how they present, both in general and in the practice room
  • How to enhance outcomes (for you and your client), before, during and after therapy

CPD Delivered by Emma TrebyInspired To Change

What previous attendees have said about this CPD:

Sarah: Having worked with behavioural styles over they years in various guises, I was really interested to see how this training might differ and ultimately, how it could be integrated in therapy and coaching. An exceptionally well delivered workshop, from an extremely ‘engaging’ tutor who shared her experiences as well as involving the delegates in theirs. I gained emence value from the content and I really enjoyed exploring these 4 behaviour styles and in particular how they’re influenced by our primitive and intellectual thinking. I felt it was spot on in terms of the quality and quantity of content, the time flew by. An exceptional training, not to be missed by any therapist or coach!

Nicola: I really enjoyed the course. I can’t wait to put it into practice and use in my personal life and professional life. I really believe it will change my communication with everyone I come into contact with once I have put it into practice for a while. Thank you

Emily: Absolutely brilliant course. So helpful and satisfying, has given me so much confidence to apply in my practice and my life generally. Superbly delivered too.

Richard: EXCELLENT ADDITION TO W/S/NOMAD. very helpful to understand the two camps for each quadrant. this will help as can use it to monitor progress of positive change truly excellent content – Thank you this should in my opinion be compulsory for all therapists… just my opinion!

Course Facilitator : Nicole Woodcock  from Hummingbird Hypnotherapy

What previous attendees have said about this CPD:

Catherine: I found this course amazing, it is clear that Nicole has a passion for this work and this means that her passion comes across in a way of total belief. The content was perfect and and easy to follow the group i was with were happy sharing their own experiences which always brings a course to life. I would certainly recommend this course to anyone.

Sarah W: A fantastic, fun and highly informative CPD. Nicole has a wealth of knowledge and experience in this area and shares this in a lively and interactive way. I feel I now have the confidence to work with clients with additional needs and look forward offering this as a service with my practice. Thank you!

Wendy M: A brilliant CPD. My eyes have been opened to the challenges that kids with additional needs face every day. And I’m really inspired to see what a difference you’re making, Nicole! Thanks for a great workshop.

Helen: Great content and the delivery was excellent

Sandra M: Nicole is very inspiring and clearly is very knowledgeable and experienced in this area. Loved the case study – more of this please as it is the practical application that is so important to experience,

Beverley B: Really enjoyed the day. It was lovely to hear how sessions can be run. I will definitely attend future CPD 🙂

 TRACEY : Really interesting course, well delivered by an experienced and knowledgeable Nicole. I’m fairly new to the world of CPHT CPD’s – this is only my 2nd, so i”m not sure if this is the norm or not, but I would find it really useful to be provided with some course materials after the course. I didn’t realise we wouldn’t get anything so didn’t take as detailed notes as I would have otherwise. In my previous industry we always would have received something, hence my confusion! Thanks for a really interesting and thought provoking day.

Catherine V: This course was brilliant. Nic was so relaxed delivering the course and put us all at ease so we could relax and enjoy the content of the course. Would definitely recommend this course.
