Hypnotherapy training – is it for you ?

Why I became a Hypnotherapist and why hypnotherapy training is for you

Hi I’m Gary Johannes and I’m the senior lecturer here at CPHT  Peterborough, Cambridgeshire and the East of England

hypnotherapy training is it for you
Gary explaining how the brain works

But I’ve not always been a hypnotherapist in fact just like many of my students I’ve had a varied career. I went on the hypnotherapist to get more personal development, to get business development so I could be better at my then job. However, I fell in love with being a hypnotherapist. So much so I built a busy practice of my own and now I’m also a lecturer for the gold standard hypnotherapy school CPHT.

So if you’re ready to start a new career, to up-skill in your current roll or just want to have the freedom that comes with the lifestyle you really want, then this course is for you.

The best thing about being a hypnotherapist for me when I started was the ability to help so many different people whether for anxiety in everyday life or doing presentation within their jobs.

The other thing for me it gave me freedom to live the lifestyle I wanted. So I was in control of my destiny, I was in control of how many hours I worked and when I worked. I could choose whether I wanted time off or whether I wanted to work every hour available. It is my choice, I’m in charge of my destiny, I felt good about that and I was able to help people feel good about themselves. So it was the freedom that I really enjoyed.

So who comes on our course?

We get such a wide variety of different types of people coming on our course.From different aspects of life, we get people who are working full time and want to change their careers, they want to free up some time, get of the hamster wheel of corporate life.

We get people who are already qualified in the therapy or medical world, whether that be in the NHS like a nurse or someone working as a counsellor or maybe a body worker like a masseur or chiropractor and want to add more tools to help more people. We get people who have been a fulltime parent and want to get back into the work place but also want to help people

So we get all walks of life. We get people who want to be part-time we get people who want to be full-time, but most of all when they come on the course they want to see how they can fit the course around their busy lives and get the qualification they want and to start their new careers

And our course is perfect for that!

One of the big questions I get asked on a regular basis is, ‘how do I fit in all the course work around my everyday life?’ Over the years we’ve been running hypnotherapy courses we’ve had all sorts of people, we’ve had people working full-time employment, those who have been made redundant and are looking for something more fulfilling, parents with young children (even nursing mums), people working away from home and people who have just come back into the work place after being a parent for many many years. What they all noticed is how flexible it is to fit around their day to day lives.

But what really sets us apart is that we are solution focused. That means we work with people to get the best out-c0me for them, but its future paced; we use the most clinically proven techniques and the most modern neuroscience research to back up everything we do, so we know we are always at the forefront of the hypnotherapy world.

Being A Clinical Hypnotherapist Is A Rewarding Career

Hypnotherapy Training Courses – Why I chose Solution Focused Hypnotherapy

Gary JohannesI particularly look forward to Fridays as do most of the general population, but probably for very different reasons! For me, it’s an opportunity to reflect back on the all people I have seen throughout the week, and how I am able to aid them on their journey as my hypnotherapist once aided me.

It wasn’t very long ago that I too couldn’t wait until Friday, almost delirious that the week was finally over, looking forward to spending time with family and friends over the weekend.  But then that feeling of dread slowly creeping over as Sunday afternoon quickly began to turn into Sunday evening. desperately clinging on to the last few hours of freedom until the weekly grind replayed once more, and missing out on a good night’s sleep fretting over the doom that is Monday Morning!!  Not a good start to the week; waking up tired and disgruntled.

It dawned upon me, although there wasn’t technically anything ‘wrong’ with my life, I felt, well rather ‘bleurgh’, flat and discontented. Surely our jobs should be a positive existence, a place in which we spend most of our time with people we are happy to surround ourselves with? Sadly, for many of us this is just not the case, according to some recent research conducted by the London School of Business and Finance a staggering forty-seven percent of the professional population want to change their jobs. The poll hoped for increased salary prospects, better work-life balance and improved job satisfaction.

 

I took my concerns of entrapment and to an extent guilt and ingratitude (after all I had a roof over my head and a healthy family didn’t I?) to a recommended hypnotherapist in Peterborough, I always thoroughly enjoyed my own hypnotherapy sessions and was amazed and intrigued by the changes I had made in my life and most importantly the understanding I took away stayed with me.

As my interest peaked I decided the time was right and contacted my hypnotherapist, he suggested registering on the CPHT HPD diploma Hypnotherapy Training course, they offered the best qualification.

 

I chose the successful CPHT in particular for the depth of knowledge passed down to their students, they have pioneered the way for modern science based clinical hypnotherapy.

Their Hypnotherapy training courses are designed to conveniently ‘slot’ into life. I trained for one weekend per month for ten months, allowing me work throughout the duration of the course, this worked surprisingly well, and fitted quite nicely into work, home and a young family.

I enjoyed every aspect of the CPHT course so much so that just over a year later I gleefully welcome Mondays and aiding my clients at my own practice.

Being a clinical hypnotherapist is a decidedly rewarding career, my job to assist and support my clients to bring about desired change is exceptionally fulfilling.

If you want to be at the cutting edge of hypnotherapy and make a real difference to the clients you see in the future, with a successful career in hypnotherapy this could be the right Course for you.  To find out about the next hypnotherapy diploma course run by CPHT Kent, just give senior lecturer Gary Johannes a call on 07780 592625 (he runs a busy practice so you may have to leave a message) or click this link to send us an application form today.  Training is over 10 months and you’ll be working towards the Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD), the only nationally recognised and independently assessed hypnotherapy qualification in the UK.

Looking For A New Career? Try Hypnotherapy!

Looking for a new career? Have you considered hypnotherapy? It is one of the fastest growing careers in the UK and here is why.

1 in 4 of us will suffer from some form of mental health issue in 2016. The pressures of our moderns lives means stress, anxiety and depression are on the rise and our National Health Service is struggling to keep up.

4 years ago I was one of those 1 in 4. A diagnosis of M.E. (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) had seen me go from someone who ran twice a week, swam twice a week and worked just as hard in a very successful career to someone who struggled to put one foot in front of another and string together a decent sentence.

The uncertainty during the 2 years it took to get a diagnosis sent my anxiety rocketing and my confidence plummeting and, what had started out as a physical health issue spiralled into a mental health issue too.
I’m pleased to say I am no longer one of the 1 in 4 – I’m now one of the 1 in 36,000. I’m one of the growing body of professional hypnotherapists who are leading the way in the mental health arena, helping those 1 in 4 overcome their stress, anxiety or depression, building their confidence and self-esteem so they can move forward with their lives.
Hypnotherapy helped me get my life back on track. I recognised that the high stress work environment I had thrived in before was no longer doing me any favours. I was so inspired by how hypnotherapy had helped me that I rather rashly decided the solution was to retrain as a hypnotherapist myself.

It sounded great as I imagined it in my mind – how lovely it would be to help others every day, to choose the hours I wanted to work, to ditch the daily commute. What a fulfilling life I would have! But then reality hit, I couldn’t just give up work and retrain and set up a new business – I had a mortgage to pay!
My hypnotherapist recommended I contact CPHT as they provided the best qualification in the UK – if you’re going to do something you’ve got to do it properly right! I had a mixture of excitement and disappointment swirling around my mind as I picked up the phone to them – I’d read about their diploma course and it sounded amazing but I couldn’t see how I could find the time or the money to retrain. So I was delighted to learn that I could do the course at weekends and pay for it in monthly instalments! So there really was nothing holding me back.
And three and a half years on from making that phone call I don’t have to imagine how lovely it is to help others every day, I don’t have to imagine what it’s like to choose when I want to work.

I don’t have to imagine what my life would be like without the daily commute and the stressful work environment. I live that fulfilling life every day on the other side of the 1 in 4 – as part of the solution, not feeling stuck in the problem.
