Working as a hypnotherapist is an extremely rewarding career. Every day brings new challenges and opportunities to research and further your skills as a therapist as no two clients are the same. In fact, no two days will ever be the same again while working as a hypnotherapist!
Hypnotherapists are in the main, self employed, so you do have the advantage of choosing your hours and having breaks or holidays when you wish to. However, being self employed can be hard work, especially in the early days of building up your hypnotherapy practice.
There are many different things to consider when deciding which hypnotherapy training course to choose. One of the most important considerations when embarking upon hypnotherapy training is the level of accreditation that your course has.
TAG Academy hypnotherapy courses are accredited by the General Hypnotherapy Register and the National Council for Hypnotherapy, the two foremost accrediting bodies in the UK.
When considering a career change, or adding another therapeutic tool to your box, the length of time and commitment that is required is something that you will be thinking about.
With so many on-line and distance classes now being offered in so many areas, it can be tempting to go for that option, and we are sure that a lot of these courses if they are being offered as Continuing Professional Development, certainly have value and their place.
However, when starting out in hypnotherapy there really is no substitute for solid, classroom based training where you have the benefit of a personal tutor, a team of tutors behind them and of course your fellow students.
Training in hypnotherapy is something that you can do while you are still working in your current job, as most hypnotherapy training is on a part time basis. There are so many different courses available and you need to find the location, quality of training/accreditation and of course the dates that fit into your lifestyle.
Working full time and spending time studying at the weekend and evenings can be challenging but with determination and a lot of support it is most definitely worth it!
OK, you’re serious about wanting to train to be a hypnotherapist in London and want to know what are the main things to consider when looking at the right course for you.
Here at Training Alliance Group’s TAG Academy, a good point at which to start is to define what exactly hypnotherapy is. You have probably seen stage hypnotists performing various ‘acts’ of showmanship on willing subjects. This gives the appearance that hypnosis is about somebody, the hypnotist, taking control of your mind. Well in reality, hypnosis is simply about narrowing your attention down to a highly focused state. You will recall times when you have been so consumed in a specific thought that other aspects of the world are momentarily placed beyond your awareness.
How many times have you determined to achieve a goal, often at New Year or when entering some new phase in your life, and started with a flourish fuelled by all your desires and good intentions only then to have your momentum peter out well before you reach your target?
Are there people who emotionally impinge on you and push your buttons? What they say or do is only their own opinion or intention, yet somehow you can buy into their projected notion and even take ownership of it to the point of reacting as if actually does define you.
What can you do about it?
You may be considering training as a hypnotherapist with a view to working full time with hypnosis, to add hypnotherapy to your existing therapy practice.
Often, our hypnotherapy students take our training course for their own personal development, as with any therapeutic discipline, we learn about ourselves as we learn to help others.
It was mainly about mindset psychology. It was less about tactics and it was less about ability. However the lack of the right mindset certainly impacted on both tactics and ability.
England was the more talented team – totally and without question. Yet they played, as is so often the case, in their default protective back foot style.
You may already be a therapist, offering counselling to clients or maybe holistic treatments such as reflexology or massage and wish to add another therapy discipline to your skill set.
Or, you may be from a completely different sector and have made the decision to make a change. We have worked students from many walks of life!
