Top trainers discuss how practitioners can maintain high standards
One of the country’s leading hypnotherapy training centres talks about how it continues to support its students once they’ve successfully completed the course.
Inspiraology consists of a number of training centres around the country and Europe.
It’s keen to ensure its students continue to ‘maintain a high standard of proficiency’ by encouraging them to engage with ‘professional advancement courses’ to ensure the practitioners remain familiar with the latest methods and approaches.
‘Staying informed of advances in the area can assist you in delivering top-notch care to those who engage with your services,’ explains Matthew Cahill, Inspiraology’s director.
‘Keeping informed of fresh advances in the discipline can be done by attending meetings, participating in seminars and workshops, connecting with other specialists and keeping up to date on any new approaches being introduced to the industry.’
‘It’s important to stay informed on current trends in hypnotherapy by reading relevant publications or joining online forums where practitioners share their experiences.’
‘Additionally, taking part in regular training sessions, or webinars, will help keep your skills sharpened and allow you to learn more about advanced topics within the profession.’
The team encourage its graduates to attend conferences and seminars which are run at a national level and are designed to deepen their understanding on how hypnosis works.
‘An invaluable way to expand knowledge base’
‘Attending conferences and seminars can be an invaluable way of expanding your knowledge base while connecting with like-minded individuals from around the world who have similar interests,’ says Matthew.
‘Many of these events offer practical demonstrations which can give attendees valuable insight into how different approaches work in practice – something which cannot always be learned through theoretical study alone.’
‘Hypnotherapy continues to see an increased demand as more and more people turn to it to help with managing stress and its associated problems.’
‘Studies have shown that it can be very successful when combined with traditional therapies, making it an attractive option to those seeking help.’
‘Additionally, more people are becoming aware of the benefits of engaging in alternative treatments like hypnotherapy.’
‘The requirement for competent professionals is growing throughout the nation as awareness of hypnotherapy’s advantages increases.’
To practice, a student needs to complete an officially recognised programme which trains them to assess a client, devise a treatment plan, apply hypnotic techniques and adhere safety to a number of ethical standards.
They also need to sit for an examination by an awarding body. Upon passing the exam, they’re awarded a certificate confirming their qualifications as an accredited hypnotherapist.
The duration of achieving accreditation as a hypnotherapist in the UK fluctuates based on what type of instruction is pursued.
Generally, an accredited course will take between 10-12 months to complete. The training includes classroom instruction and supervised practice. Some courses may be shorter or longer depending on your learning style and goals.
‘The rewards of becoming a qualified hypnotherapist are numerous as it really can change someone’s life for the better by helping them to reduce their stress levels or by assisting someone to stop smoking.’
