Hypnotherapy: What to Expect at Our Training
We get asked all the time what hypnosis is like, and what a training in hypnotherapy entails.
Here is a brief overview of what to expect at our 3 Day Hypnotherapy Certification Training:
Expect to find some like minded people to discuss hypnosis with, practice with and network with. Our students always find the atmosphere of our trainings to be very inviting and open. Students often form friendships and professional relationships after the course and keep in touch. Because you’re all there to learn something you mutually find interesting and valuable, as soon as you walk into the training you’ll find a group of like minded people to work with and connect with
Expect to be very very relaxed! Because we focus most of the training on experiencing the state of trance and hypnosis, you can expect to get a very deep understanding of what hypnosis is all about first hand. Each day you’ll go through a number of exercises all build on previous exercises to give you many opportunities to experience hypnosis as the hypnotist and the client. All this creates quite a relaxing environment for you (and us!).
Expect to gain an understanding of hypnosis and how you can use this powerful state to create lasting change in yourself and others. Hypnosis or ‘trance’ is probably a lot different than you think. Because of movies and TV, many people think hypnosis involves having control over someone, or being totally unaware of what’s going on. What’s great about our 3 Day Hypnotherapy Certification Training is that you’ll get to understand the theory of hypnosis, as well as experience this state many times over the weekend so you’ll understand first hand that it has nothing to do with power or control, rather simply choosing to follow the instructions of a trusted person.
Expect to gain an understanding of how to create connections with people and begin to ‘read’ them. Because hypnotherapy hinges on trust between the client and the hypnotist, it’s vital that hypnotherapists understand how to create connections and trust with their clients, in order to assist them in making changes. You’ll get to practice the principles of Rapport in order to create these connections.
Expect to get a peek into other modalities that we teach. Hypnotherapy is only one modality that we teach, and it is extremely powerful. Usually at the hypnotherapy course we get questions about the other things we specialise in, so if time permits, we will do a demonstration of Time Line Therapy® which is a powerful technique used to assist clients in letting go of negative emotions and limiting beliefs from the past. This has always been a highlight of our training, as the students get to see other ways of helping people.
Expect to learn how to rapidly hypnotise yourself and others. This is one of the most fun parts of the training. We’ll take you through a section on how to do rapid inductions with clients, and then use that same process to hypnotise yourself. How awesome would it be if you could put yourself into a state of trance and then give yourself powerful suggestions for change? This is also a great skill to go out and teach your future clients to use to give themselves suggestions on their own.
Expect to get take home scripts and outlines for working with clients. Hypnosis is not a new field. In fact, people have been using hypnosis for thousands of years to help themselves and others. Over the past several decades, it has also become a popular tool for helping people make significant changes in their lives. Many famous hypnotists have paved the way for us such as Milton Erickson, Dave Elman and Al Krasner, all hypnotists we talk about at this weekend training. You’ll learn the framework popularised by Al Krasner, some effective language patterns used by Milton Erickson and inductions used by Dave Elman.
Expect to leave with confidence in your skills and understanding. Al Krasner said himself when he began running hypnosis seminars that we would struggle to stretch his content out to 2 days because hypnosis and the process of hypnotising yourself and others is so simple. Its true, hypnosis itself is extremely straightforward and easy to learn. For this reason, you’ll spend most of the time in this training practising the art of hypnosis. You’ll get to be the client and the hypnotist throughout the weekend so you get a deep understanding of the whole process. This will give you confidence when you start working with clients when discussing what hypnosis is, and taking your clients through the whole process.
These are just a few things to expect at our 3 Day Hypnotherapy Certification Training. Come join us for our next training and experience this powerful tool for yourself!
