What’s Been Good About EH5

Ann Harrison was a standout student on EH5 (there were many on that course, which ran despite lockdown from September 2020 to Jun 2021!)

We managed to get back in to the classroom for Module 10 (Jun 2021) and she very kindly wrote this poem for us:

 

Sitting at my laptop the other night

Had sent off my paperwork, Anne said it was right

Relieved, I took a break… mulled over some thoughts in my head

And, instead of submitting WR102… the muse struck and I wrote nonsense verse instead!

 

Module 1, we logged in, wet behind the ears

But Alex and Anne soon allayed our fears

They smiled, full of enthusiasm, and we smiled back at them

Our mirror neurons were firing on all cylinders

Though we didn’t know it then!

 

We soon learned Anne needed her coffee fix

And Alex loved his pre-course run

Just so they felt a tad human

Before the Zoom meeting had begun

Checking out our faces on the screen

Any latecomers for roll call?

Don’t forget 9.30 sharp on Sunday so there’ll be time for group trance for all!

 

Gulp! What? See clients straight away

Friends and family will do

To practice language patterns and trance

Crivvens! Our stress buckets were fu’!

 

Anne said “pull up your big girl/boy pants

You’ll be qualified one day!”

Then we discovered the sting in the tail…

By module 8 they’d have to pay!

 

“Aye,” Alex said, “on top of that

4 pages of Neuroscience to recite

In front of the class, live, no cheating”

Poor Lesley near collapsed with stage fright

 

Help was at hand in the form of Ciara

She set up our Whatsapp group

To support each other, disseminate info

And generally keep us all in the loop.

 

Recorded our downloads by month 3

Using a specialist if you’re no use at IT

Background Music with no infringement of copyright

For our clients to listen to in bed at night

 

Module 4 lying awake at night, was it indigestion?

No, simply trying to get to grips with the infernal Miracle Question

Give the clients time to answer, Anne said, Alex said up and down your fingers is the goal

But, whatever you do guys, don’t go down that rabbit hole.

 

Rewind and Reframe was a revelation

Module 5 lived up to all our expectations

Now we had the Protocol for Phobias and Fears

Our clients could now face spiders without panic and tears

 

Module 6 introduced us to Smoking Cessation

Although now in 2021 we’re more a ‘vaping’ nation

But when we try to take on clients who need to give up the fags…

they say “Oh I’ve a wee bit of tobacco left in my pouch, mind if I have one last drag?”

 

We’ve had brilliant guest speakers

Lyn Penman, Nicola Griffiths, Rachel Gillibrand

But a certain world champion boxer

Showed us what he could do with that left hand

Glenn Catley, inspirational (with DN)

Invented the Mongoose (a two pronged attack)

Dip the shoulder, avoid the jab, left uppercut

And his opponent was on his back!

 

Our Supervision Q and A became the norm

Hearing our peers problem clients and case histories

Actually went down a storm

Later on in the course we really had to engage our intellectual minds

Because we had to answer our own queries

Alex and Anne had to be cruel to be kind!

 

Polar bears, cavemen, Two Trees, Steel Balls

CORP, metaphors galore, this course had it all

In 10 months we’ve learned the tools of our trade

Just follow the format, trust the process

And clients problems will fade

 

‘What’s been good’, ‘sparkling moments’ of the course

Too numerous to mention

But best of all, Module 10 being live

Our own Edinburgh convention

Just to meet face to face

In the same room

After all can’t do elbow bumps on zoom!

 

I think I speak for all when I say

Support is the key word

Struggling with MQ or CORP, a dip in confidence

We know our voice would be heard

By Alex and Anne or our ‘study buddies’

We always supported each other

From now on we’re all a family

Hypno sisters and brother

 

So thank you CPHT Edinburgh School

And thank you Alex and Anne as lecturers you’re cool

You gave us responsibility in Module 1, you knew that was best

So now in Module 10, your fledgling hypnos” are just about ready to leave the nest.

We’ll fly in now and then for supervision and advice

Maybe sometime we’ll meet for coffee and cake

That’d be really nice

But now folks raise a glass for Anne and Alex and all the students too

Because we qualified despite the pandemic

Yes thanks to SFH we all came through

 

To Anne and Alex and us… cheers!

A Golden Opportunity!

Time to retrain - CPHT Edinburgh Hypnotherapy training in Edinburgh
Hypnotherapy – a new career at any age.

The start of our impending Edinburgh course is an even bigger golden opportunity than usual.  Given the challenging times we’re facing, this course can help make a real difference to people’s lives.

We don’t just mean a real difference to someone’s career and life overall.  It will also considerably help others who will become future clients of our students and graduates.

As you sit reading this, does it seem possible that you could change what you do so significantly within a 10-month course.  As Lecturers, we know it is very possible.  We’ve been there.  We took that first step of applying for this course (admittedly a few years ago now) and we’ve been full-time hypnotherapists ever since.

There is a Buzz in the Air:

Our Lecturers are beginning to prepare for this next Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma (HPD).  It will kick off in Edinburgh on the 4th and 5th of September.  We will be tapping into the power of the brain and explaining the positive effects of hypnosis, demonstrated by using an EEG machine.  We teach students how to deal with everything from insomnia through to panic attacks; sports performance through to weight management; what neuroscience is telling us about the brain; plus a huge amount more.

Our students can look forward to making long-term friends as well as getting rather excited about a new career utilising Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy.

How Ann, a graduate from our last course, puts it:

“I feel fortunate to have trained with the CPHT Edinburgh School , it has given me a whole new career and a new lease of life.
The course is structured in such a way as to instil confidence in you from the word go. Also the lecturers are full of enthusiasm and make every module very enjoyable while delivering the essence of SFH, the neuroscience and interesting anecdotes from their personal experience as Solution Focused Hypnotherapists. They (in this instance Anne Wyatt and Alex Brounger) have been supportive all the way and have faith in sending us out into the world to ‘fly solo’.”

If you want to make a difference, then have a look through our website at the course content, the course dates and the fees by clicking on the HPD tab above.  If you’re interested, give Anne a ring on 07584 414715.  She’s one of our course lecturers so will be able to answer any questions you may have.  Alternatively, email us at info@cphtedinburgh.co.uk.

Silver Linings

For every dark cloud there is a silver lining. We suspect you’ve heard that saying before? It can indeed be the case though, even with a global pandemic.

Our students have been training during a period of great change for the therapeutic world. A change that most therapists wouldn’t have thought possible.

As we come out of lockdown, therapists are now moving back to face-to-face sessions. However, we suspect the vast majority of them will move forward offering both face-to-face and online sessions. Whereas prior to the pandemic, it was rare to have online therapy sessions.

Taking the Plunge:

It’s interesting that we’ve come across many clients, who prior to the Covid outbreak wouldn’t have considered online sessions.  They quickly realised, once they took the plunge, they benefitted greatly.  In fact, studies have shown online therapy to be very effective.  One study from Georgetown University citing: “Women appear to have better outcomes following virtual interventions than in-person interventions”.

A Cautious Flexibility:

It’s important to note that with online sessions you do need privacy and a good internet connection in order to feel comfortable and to get the most out of them. But working online and face-to-face gives both the therapist and their clients more choice.  So, speaking for ourselves, we’re going to put that down on our list as one of our silver linings.

More Silver Linings:

It’s interesting to contemplate how many other silver linings a pandemic might have brought to light? Some people have discovered a quieter life and are rather enjoying it, whilst others might appreciate the break from commuting for hours. Hopefully, as we continue to come out of the lockdown, we can take advantage of enjoying the freedom of simple things, like having a cup of coffee with a friend, and appreciate those little things all the more.

So, what are your silver linings? You might find you discover one or two hidden ones if you really think about it, despite what the negatives have been.

Hands On!

We’ve recently been interviewing applicants for our next course in Glasgow starting in March, as well as our next course in Edinburgh starting in September. We’ve discovered some people like to plan ahead.  What’s interesting is the number of applicants who say they come through to us because our course is very practical. So, how practical is it?

After the first weekend:

During the first course weekend we have the students working with each other in the classroom practising trance. Then, we send them home to ask volunteers (family and friends) to help them by listening to the student reading language patterns we’ve provided. This, by itself, can have a very positive effect on the people listening.

After the Third Weekend:

By the end of third weekend, we’ve taught the students enough that they can be working with volunteer case studies, on a free of charge basis, with aspects such as anxiety and low mood. The students then feedback their experiences to the class. It might be an interesting experience or maybe they faced a more challenging client.  The whole class can learn from this discussion. Everything is done on an anonymous basis, so the case studies volunteers know their identity is protected. The lecturers act as supervisors to the students in between the course weekends and so, over the whole of the 10-month course, the students’ confidence grows along with their clinical hours and experience.

Benefits of Practice:

Working with members of the general public allows the students to come into contact with a wide diversity of people. As a result there is a wider range of symptoms that those people present with. Anything from anxiety, panic attacks and feeling under pressure through to pain, illness or needing increased confidence to deal with any situation that might come their way. This has proven to be an exceptionally good way of teaching. In consequence we fully expect our students to be seeing a minimum of 5-6 clients per week. By month ten most of our graduates have at least a part time practice in place.  Now isn’t that something to get exited about?

This last course weekend was month 4 and the students learnt about Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and how they can help their clients overcome this issue.

Next month is fears and phobias…there’s never a dull moment!

If you’re interested in training to become a clinical hypnotherapist, give Anne a ring on 07584 414715. She’s one of our course lecturers so will be able to answer any questions you may have. Alternatively, email us at info@cphtedinburgh.co.uk.

Full details of the course can be found under the HPD tab in the header menu of this website.

It’s Not Just a Hypnotherapy Course we Deliver!

Well, we’re fast arriving at our 2020 Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma (HPD) course very shortly.  We’re in flat out mode. Sorting the paperwork for those who have already signed up and we’re still interviewing the people who’ve just realised the course is only a matter of two weeks away!

We still laugh at the fact that Alex, one of our Senior Lecturers, only realised he’d like to train as a clinical hypnotherapist three days before starring his course with David Newton in Bristol. He ended up having his interview the day before the course started.  Now that’s what we call last minute!  Who’d have thought all these years later, well 9.5 years later to be precise, he’d be a supervisor and a senior lecturer with the same organisation.

Students Say it is Life Changing:

Previous students often say that this course is a life-changer.  Whilst receiving the training on how the brain works, it not only has a life-changing effect for their case study participants, but also for the students themselves.  As they apply what they learn to their own lives they tell us about the positive effects this has, for instance:

They tell us about how:

  • they’re sleeping better;
  • they’re dealing with everyday life in a better way;
  • they’ve taken COVID in their stride much more so than they would have done previously;
  • they’re loving helping people and getting the positive feedback as a result.
  • And more… a lot more!

Even after they graduate, we still receive updates from them.  Many of them become our supervisees.  This means we stay in very regular contact as we continue to support them as they build their businesses.

We like to see them develop their careers and they’ve started well.  Having studied on a very strong course that covers a multitude of areas.  Just taking the symptomology we teach them to work is extensive, such as:

Anxiety, depression, addictions, anger, blood pressure, blushing, lack of confidence, insomnia, IBS, smoking cessation, relationship difficulties, migraines, nail biting, nightmares, obsessions (OCD), panic attacks, skin disorders, pain management, weight loss, and a lot more!

Our Success is Widespread:

Our hypnotherapy training school is one of many in the CPHT organisation.  In fact, there are 27 schools across the UK.  Therefore, we have an infrastructure that is robust and supports our graduates with not only supervision once they finish their HPD course, but Continuing Professional Development training (CPD).

The HPD course teaches students pretty much everything they need to know for a successful career as a Hypnotherapist. Our CPD’s help graduates refresh, revise and deepen their skills and knowledge.  The CPD programme helps keep them fresh and motivated whilst broadening their knowledge in areas such as IBS, Childbirth, PTSD, etc.  Knowledge that allows them to talk with more confidence, such as why someone is more likely to suffer from IBS.

And who knows, just like us, they could become future hypnotherapy supervisors or lecturers – you just don’t know where looking through our website could lead you to!

Why Not You?

If you want a very rewarding career, then have a look through our website at the course content, the course dates and the fees – just click on the HPD tab on this website.

Colourful Words Are Better For Us!

Take a moment to think about a pile of words.

Imagine a pile of words on the floor to your left. Then consider those words being as follows: winter, miserable, cold, sleet, hail, shivering, damp. Okay? Done it? Now if those words were to be a colour, what colour would they be do you imagine?

Now imagine another pile of words but to your right. In this pile imagine words such as smiling, summer, beach, happiness, energy, colourful. Now, what colour do you imagine these words would be?

Possibly the words on the left are a duller colour to the words on the right? Which pile do you prefer? We reckon the words on the right may have turned out to be lighter or brighter?

What we sometimes take for granted is the power of words. In certain situations, words can provide a catalyst for change. Not just at an intellectual level, but from the sensory perceptive level too. Many people will have painted the negative words with a negative colour. So, you can imagine what effect those words have on the brain, especially if we play them through our minds repeatedly. They could change the way we colour our lives.

Focus on the positive

If you choose to focus on something POSITIVE, whether it’s a word or an image, you start retraining your brain to automatically lean towards the POSITIVE!

It’s rather like thinking about the first record you ever bought – remember that? If you really start to think about it, you might tap into the sounds of that record or where you were when you bought it? The thought process will then probably lead you down a negative or positive track in your mind which will have an effect on the chemicals in your brain. Either increasing positive chemicals such as serotonin and dopamine or, if the thought process turns out to be negative, then it’ll increase negative chemicals, such as Cortisol.

The power of our thoughts

In teaching our students how the brain works, we give them an understanding of the power thoughts, either negative or positive. We also understand that it’s not easy to take control of your thoughts – if only we could simply snap our fingers and let all negative thoughts fall away! However, we teach our students how they can help their clients gradually change thought processes and thereby encourage an increase in positive chemicals. This allows us to feel happier and more in control.

So, despite COVID and lock down, if you need to feel happier or more in control, consider the words you thread through your mind and make them colourful! Sometimes we can’t change the situation around us, but we can improve our mood whilst keeping our feet on the ground.

Our next 10-month Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma course starts this September. See https://cphtedinburgh.co.uk/dates/ for the course weekend dates.

 

An epidemic – of stress!

The epidemic of modern life is stress

We came across an article by Deepak Chopra recently that made a lot of sense. It’s almost identical to what we’ve been saying for years:

“If an epidemic is defined as a disease that affects whole populations, without having a medical cure, then the epidemic of modern life is stress”.

We also read an article by a journalist craving to ‘escape life for a while’ and she’d found a weekend free in her busy diary in which to do so.  Turns out it was the only weekend she had free in over two months!

We can jump on our soapbox at this point, because what Deepak was talking about is a very serious situation and, in the main, created by ourselves.

Not giving ourselves proper time out leads to stress, which in turn leads to a breakdown of the body’s internal balance.  If the stress isn’t relieved, damage occurs. Serious damage within us!

There are many people in the local area, and we dread to think how many, who suffer from chronic stress that quietly builds up in a drip-drip way – and that was before COVID struck.

Many people we see as clients are suffering from things like insomnia. They might say that they’re not stressed, they just can’t sleep.  That’s because their brains have gradually become used to an increase in external pressure of whatever sort it might be.

The progression of stress

Ongoing stress reveals itself in various stages:

  1. Minor things like feeling mentally tired or perhaps under pressure from work.
  2. Then follows a behaviour change, such as a change of behaviour within work or relationships. Sometimes we see people turning to alcohol in order to escape pressure or stress. But as stress mounts the drinking can get heavier, the need for distraction more severe.
  3. Eventually chronic stress leads to physical damage.  Stomach aches, bad digestion and headaches are likely. So is reduced immune response, leading to more colds, worsened allergies and we don’t even want to mention COVID! After that, the problems will tend to be associated with inflammation, such as skin eruptions, irritable bowel syndrome, even a heart attack or stroke. By this stage, the damage caused by stress has led to serious system breakdown.

What’s interesting is when someone presents at the clinic with any of the above, they feel that this is happening to just them.  When we explain this is simply how the brain works, given certain circumstances, you can see the relief is huge.  They usually reply with something like: “What, it’s not just me then”?  It’s at this point we laugh and reply  “Oh no, it’s most definitely not just you”.

Learning how the brain works

When we teach our students how the brain works, we see pennies dropping like it’s going out of fashion.  Light bulb moments relating not only to themselves, but friends, family and work colleagues too.  As a course graduates, we always get great feedback and within that feedback can always be heard: “This course is life-changing”.

Interestingly, it’s not just life-changing for the student, but all their case study volunteers over the 10-months of training and then all the future clients they will see over the coming years.

We now have a pandemic!

Now, in 2020 with a pandemic around, there is even more work for our graduates to do.  There is a huge need to help with things such as anxiety, depression, OCD, etc. And that’s naming just a few issues, the list is very long!

If you want to be occupied in a different way, then have a look through our website at the course content, the course dates and the fees.

Changing the picture of lock down

It’s all about the picture!

There is a metaphor that we Solution Focused Hypnotherapists use, both with our students and our own clients. It’s about a picture and the following is an extract:

‘Some villagers way out in a jungle many years ago were given a painting. They were told that as long as they had this beautiful picture all would be well in their world.  Then, one day, the picture was stolen and the villagers became very worried. It seemed as though their world was coming to an end and nothing would ever appear to be the same again’.

Some of us have been reciting this metaphor for well over 15 years now, but there’s a certain irony as we repeat this story in today’s current climate!

The reason we relay this metaphor to clients is that sometimes people feel as though their world will never be as they want it to be.  This can be due to a number of things, such as losing a partner or a job; not having enough money; being restricted in what they can do; or simply a lack of positive chemicals in the brain.

The COVID-19 Crisis

Whatever the reason, we tend to look at the bleaker side of life when something untoward happens. That’s unless we have an abundance of positive chemicals already zipping round our brains or we’re a ‘glass half full’ type of person.  When this happens, we have more capacity to get us through a crisis in a better way.

We absolutely know that the more we make the most of things, the more we change the chemical reaction in our brain. This enables us to cope better.  Therefore, to enable us to cope with the uncertainty of the future right now, it’s far better to look out for the things we CAN do, rather than dwell on the things that we cannot do.  The latter simply makes us feel down or depressed.  Whereas, if we look at what we can do (and this may take a bit of effort sometimes), then we can feel happier.

Taking the current situation of lock down and COVID-19, we may not actually be able to change aspects of the situation, but we can change the way we deal with it.  We can all look at a picture and see things from a different angle.  As an example, do you remember the plane crashing into the Hudson River? For some people they would marvel as they watched the drama unfolding and be amazed at how everyone survived.  Whilst others would exclaim, “Well, that’s just another darned good reason not to get on a plane”!

Back to that Metaphor

The metaphor above goes on to say: ‘Then, one of the villagers started to paint their own picture and, soon enough, some of the other villagers joined in.  They suddenly noticed that their world was changing for the better’.

We can change our way of looking at a picture, if we want to.  A lot of our clients are saying that the lock down is an opportunity to review where they’re going in life; a chance to see how they can manage on a limited budget; a moment in time to slow down and take time with family.  Others are claustrophobic; feeling extremely anxious; wanting things to get back to normal. Then there are those who don’t want to get back to normal, they can be feeling anxious about what comes next.

Although the lock down situation is similar for a lot of us, there can be a difference in our mood which may be due to our personal circumstance. Luck can play a big part, whether or not we have an income can have a massive effect, but the uncertainty will be there for a lot of us and that’s the area that we can start to work with.

The ‘What if’ question can be asked with head bowed low and doom in our voice but it can also be asked with a bit of enthusiasm with a thought towards opportunity – because in the vast majority of cases, there is opportunity if you look hard enough or if you create your own picture of how you would like your future to be.

Changing Lives!

As Lecturers at CPHT Edinburgh and Clinical Hypnotherapists, it’s also our job to teach our students and clients how to create change in our own minds.  This enables us to make decisions in a better way, to spot opportunities and to enjoy life more.

From the first weekend of the 10-month course, our students will be helping friends and family.  Three months later, following the third course weekend, our students will be helping members of the public deal with anxiety and depression (on a case study basis).  This can have a huge impact on the way people look and deal with situations.  Their picture of life changes – more towards the positive.

If you want to change not only your own life, but other people’s lives too, then have a look around our website.  Alternatively, have a chat with us about what small steps can lead you to becoming a Clinical Hypnotherapist.  Either Call Alex on 07917 415926 or Anne on 07584 414715.

 

What Makes us Different

We do things a bit differently at Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training (CPHT)… Actually sometimes we do things a lot differently!

Playfulness

We have fun. Not only in the classroom but also in our clinics. Playfulness is an important part of what we do. And getting good at that takes practice. No wonder there is so much laughter in our hypnotherapy classrooms in Edinburgh and elsewhere in Scotland.

The Brain

We also focus a lot on the brain. “In effect”, says Daniel Siegal (author of the Developing Mind and clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine) “we are taking the brain out of its black box and opening it up for discussion in the consulting room.” We give our clients a good understanding of how the brain works and how it can cause us some considerable discomfort. This empowers them to make changes to help themselves. Our  hypnotherapy students find the same thing. They learn how the brain works to help others. In the process they use that knowledge themselves. No wonder so many say that the Hypnotherapy in Practice course we run in Edinburgh is life changing.

The Past is Gone

We do not focus on the past. We can no longer influence it. The neuroscience tells us that focusing on the future helps the brain process the past. We may reflect back on the recent past to identify those things that are going well or that we are pleased about. We might consider the strengths that enabled us to make things in the recent past go well. On the whole we treat the past as a learning experience. It is not surprising therefore that our students find themselves developing forgotten or previously unknown strengths. They surprise themselves with how much they can achieve during the hypnotherapy course.

Focus on Solutions

We also use powerful questions that focus on solutions, not on problems. Again, the neuroscience tells us that what we focus on takes up more neural networks in the brain. If we focus on problems those problems get bigger in the mind. Generally bigger problems are more difficult to deal with than smaller ones. So we are constantly encouraging our clients to focus on solutions. This shift in focus is empowering for our hypnotherapy students too. Our hypnotherapy training is undoubtedly hard work, but with a newly inspired focus on solutions our students generally find themselves being able to achieve far more than they thought possible

Hypnosis

And then of course we have hypnosis. That trance state which helps the brain work optimally. It helps us to process difficulties, solve problems, find answers and all the while promoting a feeling of confidence, calmness and clarity. Our students too, find their mind sharpens and their ability to cope under pressure improves. As a result they get very best of themselves during the course.

Do you want to get the very best out of yourself? Do you want to achieve more than you thought possible? Perhaps you want to learn about the brain or simply want a new challenge whilst having fun and meeting great new friends? Apply for our next course here: Application Form and we will be in touch to answer your questions and arrange an interview if you wish.

 

Ongoing Learning

The Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma (HPD)

One of the many reasons why people choose to study Hypnotherapy with CPHT is the available options for ongoing study after the primary Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma (HPD) course. The ten-month HPD course equips our students to work with a very broad range of people with a wide variety of symptoms. In fact, upon completion of the HPD course there aren’t many things that our graduates cannot help their clients cope better with.

So, whilst we are proud to offer a complete training course, that does not mean that learning should stop.  Most successful Hypnotherapists will want to do more Continual Professional Development (CPD) than the minimum required by their Professional Association(s).  CPHT offer a wide range of Continuing Professional Development courses. These are run both across the country and online via video conferencing/webinars. They range from a focus on different conditions to understanding more about how other modalities work. Some may be more business oriented to help graduates run their businesses more effectively or more profitably.

The Advanced Hypnotherapy Diploma (AHD)

But it is also the provision of additional externally verified qualifications that sets CPHT apart. CPHT trained Hypnotherapists may want to go on to study the Advanced Hypnotherapy Diploma (AHD). This qualification has been accredited by the NCFE as having measurable learning outcomes that have been benchmarked at Level 5 (HPD is level 4) using Ofqual’s Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF) level descriptions. The AHD involves the completion of a number of specified CPDs.   After which they complete the provide evidence that they understand each learning outcome in the module. These build in to a portfolio of evidence (similar to the one required for the HPD).  The CPDs include CBT, Mindfulness, and Psychoneuroimmunolgy.  Alex Brounger leads the AHD. He is also the Senior Lecturer for CPHT Scotland (Edinburgh and Glasgow) and CPHT Belfast.

The Supervisor’s Course:

In addition, after some years in practice Graduates from CPHT (whether it be Edinburgh, Glasgow or indeed any of the CPHT schools) may want to become a Supervisor. This enables them to use their experience and knowledge to help other Hypnotherapists work with their clients and build their businesses. Like the Advanced Hypnotherapy Diploma, the Supervisor’s Course is a Level 5 course run by CPHT’s Alex Brounger.
