Richard Hill - Mirroring Hands
29 - 30 June 2019
£250 for both days (£125 each)
12 CPD Hours
Richard Hill will be back in London to teach this popular therapeutic technique and approach over 2 days in London. For those that missed him last year, you may be interested in attending.
Mirroring hands takes you and the client the next step toward healing and resolution by utilizing the connection between the outer and inner self to stimulate our natural problem-solving and mind-body healing. Mindfulness has emerged to help us re-locate our sense of safety, peace and self connection, which can be broken by both personal trauma and difficulty, and by the disruptive difficulties of the modern world.
Mirroring Hands is the natural progression for those who have been working with Mindfulness and in the fields of promoting mental and emotional health.
Day 1 - Certificate I: Essential Practice
Session 1 – The Natural Rhythms and Cycles
We explore and re-establish our awareness of the best ways of being. We will learn about natural problem-solving capacities both individually and in relationship with the client.
​Session 2 – The Wonders in Our Hands
We begin the process of learning and experience how we can utilize the hands to open a connection to the inner self. Practical exercises will introduce the framework of the Mirroring hands experience followed by a demonstration.
​Session 3 – The Language and The Silence of Mirroring Hands.
We explore the powerful effect of using only as much language as the client needs in order to begin problem solving and healing processes. More experiential work with different aspects of Mirroring Hands will deepen your felt experience of the practice.
​Session 4 – A Client Responsive Therapeutic Approach
Through experiential exercises we will explore the important client responsive approach of sensitive observation and therapy emerging as a response to the client, rather than a direction or even suggestion. A final group exercise will prepare you for the way you choose to utilise Mirroring Hands beyond the workshop.
​Learning Objectives:
​The overall objective is to learn the essential elements of the Mirroring Hands approach and therapeutic practice. This includes:
How to introduce and induce a client to the process
The 4-Stage creative cycle and The natural Ultradian Rhythm
How to facilitate the client’s natural problem solving and mind-body healing
The language and silence of Mirroring Hands
Appreciation of “sensitive observation”
The meaning and value of a client-responsive approach
This full day workshop will lay the foundations for both the practical application and conscious understanding of what is involved in Mirroring Hands. It is the first step in becoming a master practitioner of Mirroring Hands and to become fully engaged in the traditions of Milton Erickson and Ernest Rossi that are the foundation for this unique practice.
Day 2 - Certificate II: Practitioner I
Session 1 – Ideodynamic Responses - motor/sensory/affect
We begin with reflections of the first workshop, then we explore the nature of the ideomotor response, expanding out to the many other ways messages are sent from the implicit world to explicit awareness. This includes experiential activities
​Session 2 – Comfort and the Growing Edge
We consider the concept of comfort and strength, first in discussion and then through a group Mirroring hands activity. A demonstration by Richard and an appropriate member of the group will be followed by reflective discussion.
​Session 3 – Practice
We begin with the application of specific forms in groups of three and then move to an unregulated facilitation of Mirroring Hands between pairs.
​Session 4 – Advanced Use and Application
Mirroring Hands is an improvised experience based on the technical principles. This final practical session brings together and integrates what has been learnt to allow each person the opportunity to discover what stage of applying Mirroring Hands they have reached.
​Learning Objectives:
​The overall objective is to learn how to utilise the Mirroring Hands approach in therapeutic practice. This includes:
How to be sensitive to the variety of ideodynamic responses
The nature of comfort and how comfort facilitates strength
Discovering your growing edge and exploring your best way to practice
Learning to trust improvisation of technique
Observing a demonstration
Understand advanced use and application of Mirroring Hands in clinical situations.
This full day workshop prepares the participant for the practical application of Mirroring Hands with the client in mind. There is a greater focus on experiential work in order to begin to appreciate how Mirroring Hands can be implemented in to your professional practice and how the Mirroring Hands Approach can be integrated with your current therapeutic practices to enhance what you already do.

EMDR techniques for hypnotherapists (2days)
4th - 5th May 2019
Brief description:
This highly practical and interactive workshop is designed for hypnotherapists and talking therapists to use EMDR techniques within their hypnotherapy sessions. EMDR works very well alongside a diverse range of hypnotherapy approaches.
Originally designed to help address traumatic memories, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) facilitates the accessing, processing and resolving of disturbing memories and unpleasant life experiences, whilst addressing negative beliefs and unwanted body sensations about past and future events and promoting supportive positive beliefs. EMDR is a highly useful tool for any professional hypnotherapist. It is most commonly associated with working with trauma, yet is also very helpful in addressing a range of disturbances, anxiety (past, present, future events), phobias and performance concerns.
Learning objectives:
Participants will gain practical and theoretical understanding of how to use EMDR techniques and principles within their hypnotherapy practice.
Course structure:
This highly practical workshop discusses the theory of trauma, PTSD perspectives and the processing of disturbance. It then explores a range of EMDR techniques and approaches including:
Assessing contra-indications
Preparation and information gathering
Metaphors for EMDR
Working with SUD and VOC scales
Using bilateral stimulation and eye movements (finger sweep, clicks and taps)
Bilateral stimulation using technology
Processing images, beliefs, emotions and sensations
Working through blocks and loops
Closing interim and final sessions
Self-use of bilateral stimulation
You will also explore protocols for past and recent trauma, phobias, anxiety and anger, together with how to adapt protocols for ego strengthening, positive enhancement and future pacing.
Please note that the majority of this two-day course is practical and you will be expected to participate, both giving and receiving EMDR. You do not need to have experienced trauma to participate. You are also requested to focus your own experience on minor issues. If you wish to work through a significant trauma, please address this in therapy outside of this workshop.
