Stress can be the cause of many sleepless nights and friction both in and out of the workplace but with Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training (CPHT), you could learn how to deliver hypnotherapy that will help cut down on substantial levels of stress in the workplace. This isn’t just good sense for business, it also has a beneficial effect on employees, staff morale and improve productivity.
David, the Senior Lecturer on the next hypnotherapy course in Edinburgh and a Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (SFH) practitioners says, “One of the most common areas that people come to see me about is areas of life connected to stress and, in particular, stress at work. You can learn how to help individuals deal with this stress in our 10 month, accredited course starting in September 2015.
Workplace stress can manifest itself in a variety of different ways – not just in the office but also at home and socially.
“There are parts of our brains that are very adept at dealing with the perception of threats and our negative reactions to stress are an evolutionary coping mechanism which might not be helpful in our day to day lives.”
“People who struggle with stress in the office may find they have anger issues or that they struggle with sleep patterns – perhaps becoming insular in their thinking, you can get a real understanding of this on the course through neuroscience and elements of psychology.”
David says Solution Focused Hypnotherapy helps because it does not focus on a problem but looks to a series of solutions which help to quickly propel us towards a brighter future.
“A key part of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is the safe use of a trance state which is a natural way to aid in the reduction of stress so that, after a number of sessions, the client can start to feel better placed to cope with life, you will become proficient in delivering this throughout your training.”
Some clients have also found that it helps to improve their thinking ability, productivity and confidence – both in and out of the workplace.
“By emptying the stress bucket, we allow the brain a greater degree for flexibility in being able to think positively, act positively and interact in a productive fashion.”
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can also be used to help to take control over other aspects of our lives, ranging from stopping smoking through to reducing phobias and weight management.
David is the course leader and senior lecturer on the course and is also a fully qualified hypnotherapy practitioner. He is also the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the prestigious Nationwide Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH).
The AfSFH ensures its members adhere to high ethical standards and on-going professional development to keep them up to speed on all the latest research and techniques being used in both psychotherapy and hypnotherapy.
