CPHT Edinburgh Hypnotherapy Training – a complete package.

The network of Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training Schools, Edinburgh being the only one on Scotland, pride themselves on providing a ‘complete’ training package, with teaching continually in line with the latest research from neuro-psychology and neuro-science.

All well and good but what does this actually mean?

Well, we mean that everything that you need to move from someone who has either no prior experience of being a therapist at all or has experience in a different approach to therapy, to a fully practicing and competent self-employed Solution Focused Therapists is addressed on course. In fact, Alex Brounger and Anne Wyatt, the Senior lecturers at CPHT Edinburgh Hypnotherapy Training require students to be fully competent, theoretically and practically, with a growing practice of real customers before they sign a student off on graduation day and provide full support to help them achieve this.

So what does the complete package look like?

Four key areas are required from a complete training course and CPHT Edinburgh Hypnotherapy Training delivers on all four:

  1. Theoretical teaching
  2. Practical experience
  3. Marketing support
  4. Recognised, accredited qualification

Theoretical Teaching

Our students learn how the brain works – how anxiety and depression (our bread and butter areas) are created neurologically, along with a wide variety of other issues that customers bring to our clinics. Not only that but we teach you exactly how to explain this to customers in a wonderfully straightforward, informative way. This explanation forms the basis of any initial consultation that CPHT trained hypnotherapists go through with new customers. To say customers find it life changing and empowering is an understatement. It is not unusual for them to feedback that despite years of other therapy approaches and medical interventions, they have never had anyone explain why they are feeling how they are feeling and how they can take control to change things at an emotional and neurological level. It is truly fascinating and empowering stuff!

The theoretical teaching covers a wide variety of issues and symptoms, including, but far from a complete list:

  • Anxiety and depression
  • Anger
  • Fears and phobias
  • Insomnia
  • IBS (irritable bowel syndrome)
  • OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
  • Addictions (including Smoking)
  • Weight management

Practical Experience

There is no point graduating with all of this theoretical teaching without knowing how to put it into practice and having the confidence to do so. CPHT Edinburgh Hypnotherapy Training graduates leave able to do just that. We don’t believe that leaving practical work until the last minute is the way to achieve this, so our students begin to work with customers right from weekend one, starting with friends and family and building up to real customers with real issues. By month 8, providing Alex and Anne are happy with their level of competency, our students are charging half price, advertising themselves as student hypnotherapists. From very early on in the course they will have insurance in place to enable them to do this.

One of the many strengths of the course that enables students to practice from the very start is that teaching is layered – each month we add in another skill and more information for students to practice so that they build up from practicing basic relaxation skills through to working essentially as a full therapist by the end of the course but with the support of Alex and Anne both on course weekends and in between as required.

Marketing support

So our students now have the theoretically understanding and practical experience that they need to be competent hypnotherapists. Wonderful. But that doesn’t help you to create a thriving therapy practice as a self-employed hypnotherapist and without that, your time and money has perhaps not been used to greatest effect.

CPHT Edinburgh Hypnotherapy Training provides a marketing module to address this aspect of training and working life. Not only that, because we require students to work with customers right from the start, they are already building a great reputation from word of mouth. It isn’t unusual for students to begin to develop marketing materials and their website on course and many find themselves premises to work from too.

As a group, our students gel beautifully and provide mutual support, sharing marketing information and that helps greatly. Every weekend, Alex Brounger and Anne Wyatt as senior lecturers lead feedback sessions, where students report back on how things are going for them and their customers in terms of practical work and marketing issues are often discussed here too.

Anne Wyatt, Senior Lecturer, CPHT Edinburgh Hypnotherapy Training

Edinburgh city centre is home to one of the 20 UK based Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training Schools and provides the only CPHT school in Scotland. CPHT is renowned throughout the UK and internationally for its Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma (HPD) course, NCFE accredited at Level 4.   Senior Lecturers Alex Brounger and Anne Wyatt are proud to bring the fourth CPHT Edinburgh Hypnotherapy training course to Scotland in February 2019. 

Anne started her career as an NHS Speech and Language Therapist and specialised in working with children and young adults who stammered.  As the specialist trainer for the service, she spent much of her time training colleagues and other professionals as well as guest lecturing at University.  Following her training at the CPHT Hypnotherapy Training school in Plymouth, Anne has successfully transitioned into private practice.  She now runs her own thriving full time Solution Focused Hypnotherapy Practice in Aberdeenshire.  In 2017 she followed on from her NHS experience of supervising colleagues and qualified as a Solution Focused Hypnotherapy supervisor.  Anne is also one of two senior lecturers bringing CPHT training to Newcastle-upon-Tyne in 2019. 

Anne places much of the credit for her success on the quality of training she received through the Clifton Practice. The emphasis on research, continuous practice with real clients and the focus on setting up your own practice proved invaluable.

Anne is delighted to join her colleague, Alex Brounger so that CPHT Hypnotherapy Training in Scotland can continue.  Following on from the three previous courses in the city, February 9th, 2019 sees the start of the fourth CPHT Edinburgh Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma Training course.  Based in the Jury’s Inn next to Waverley Station, the course promises to not only provide superb teaching to produce top quality graduates fit for practice but brings it with fun and lots of laughter along the way!
