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.

There are six stages to ACT that take a client from acceptance through to committed action. The process can incorporate hypnosis, CBT, mindfulness and even coaching. It is heavily supported by the NHS and NICE guidelines.

Mindfulness and Emotional Intelligence training has already found a valuable place in organizations such as health care and education facilities. Mindfulness practices are gradually increasing in modern organizations as growing research continues to illustrate the benefits that soon become evident in the bottom line
An understanding of how thoughts and feelings influence our behavior has shown us that our worries about the future and past negatively influences our behavior in the present. Mindfulness counters this process by teaching us to focus on the current moment.
The specific benefits and application of mindfulness principles and practices are discussed in more detail in the areas of psychotherapy to relieve depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder, and chronic pain, as an intervention for behavioral problems such as addictions, and to enhance the wellbeing and performance of kids, teens, and in organizational development.

Mindfulness and Behavioural Therapy Course
Distance learning

Behavioural Therapy employs mental and physical exercise to build and strengthen the excitatory processes, creating a new balance where they can dominate the brain functioning and overcome problematic behaviour.
Behavioral therapies are based on the theory of classical conditioning. The premise is that all behavior is learned; faulty learning (i.e. conditioning) is the cause of abnormal behavior. Therefore the individual has to learn the correct or acceptable behavior
