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.

Highly qualified, talented teachers who are successful, experienced hypnotherapists.

The Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training School was established in 2002 by David Newton, probably the most successful and experienced clinical practitioner in the country.  With over 30.000 clinical hours to his name, David is recognised as being a gifted teacher.  Understandably, he is extremely proud of the network of 15 UK and 5 international CPHT schools and is meticulous in vetting ex CPHT graduates who aspire to become senior lecturers. 

Excellent Therapists, Excellent Trainers, Excellent Therapy.

Excellent therapy can only be provided by excellent therapists who have been trained by excellent teachers and David prides himself on choosing the best.  This means finding talented Clifton Trained therapists who are not only are running their own established and highly successful therapy practices but who also have exceptional skills when it comes to teaching others how to achieve the same.  Alex Brounger and Anne Wyatt, senior lecturers at CPHT Edinburgh Hypnotherapy Training are delighted to have met David Newton’s exacting standards.

Alex Brounger

Alex has been working as a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist since 2011.  He gained the ‘gold standard’ Hypnotherapy Practitioners Diploma and transitioned into full time practice in 2012. Since then Alex has consistently seen more clients per week than 75% of all hypnotherapists registered with the NCH (Nation Council for Hypnotherapy)Alex has gone on to qualify as a supervisor, much to the delight of colleagues who hold him in such high respect.  As Alex says “like anything in life if you want to be good at something you have to practice it. And I continue to get a lot of practice!”

Alex has extensive experience of teaching others, providing CPD courses to colleagues which continue to be in high demand as well as being an established CPHT Senior Lecturer at CPHT Belfast. 

Alex is also committed to providing excellent therapy for his clients and so not only meets but exceeds the expectations of the three professional organisations he is a member of, the CNHC (Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council), the NCH (National Council for Hypnotherapy) and the AfSFH (Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy).

Anne Wyatt

Anne began her therapy career as a Speech and Language Therapist.  She dedicated 18 years to the NHS, rising to the top of her clinical career as a Specialist Trainer and Therapist for Disorders of Fluency.

She retrained as a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist in 2013, building upon much of her existing training.  She immediately opened a full time Hypnotherapy Practice in the North East of Scotland and has exceeded all expectations, both her own and those of experienced colleagues, in terms of the consistently high numbers of weekly clients she has seen in her single rural practice in Banchory.  Like Alex, she has gone on to train as a supervisor and is sought after as such by colleagues.  Anne often reflects on these achievements.  ‘Having only know full time employment, I had no idea how to set up a private practice.  I just didn’t know where to start.  Not only did CPHT training guide me in how to do it, my experiences now help me to understand where students are coming from and how to support them to make that transition and achieve their dreams.’

Anne has extensive teaching experience both with colleagues, other professionals and students at a University undergraduate level.  She has built an enviable reputation as a trainer over her 22-year therapy career and is passionate about teaching and mentoring others and watching them grow in skill base and confidence.

CPHT has been providing Hypnotherapy Training in the UK for over 15 years, with 20 satellite schools across the UK and 5 international schools.
