Learn self-hypnosis and gain greater control over your life! Anyone can attend this one-day highly practical self-hypnosis workshop. It will be of particular interest to anyone wishing to engage in personal or professional self-development. It will also be of relevance to anyone with an interest in hypnosis, and hypnotherapy; whether for self-help, becoming a practitioner, or already a therapist.
Perhaps you have already started using self-suggestion; yet found that a particular habit or belief isn’t easy to change. Your critical conscious mind can resist change. In self-hypnosis, you are able to bypass this ‘gate-keeper’ and have greater access to your subconscious mind, where you are better able to work with established habits and beliefs. In this workshop, you will learn how to use specific language to most effectively communicate with your subconscious mind. Applications include:
•Build resources and resilience
•Change your inner self-talk
•Connect to your intuition and your ‘inner advisor’
•Develop your emotional intelligence
•Let go of mental clutter and develop a stronger focus on your goals
•Manage chronic and acute pain
•Optimise lifestyle management
•Personal and professional development
•Reduce stress
•Refocus unhealthy eating habits to make healthier food choices
•Release unhelpful habits, and develop healthier habits
This workshop can help you move beyond just problem-solving, into solution-focused achievement, supported by evidence-based principles and approaches.
By the end of the workshop, you will have gained an understanding of how, when and why you can use self-hypnosis, together with a range of practical skills to give you a ‘ready-to-use’ self-hypnosis toolbox for personal change and development. Topics include:
All about hypnosis:
What is hypnosis? Definitions, myths and misconceptions
The science of hypnosis; how it works
Meditation and hypnosis, how they compare
How the mind works:
The use of suggestion and the impact of negative suggestion
The Laws of Suggestion and Rules of the Mind
How our mind can distort our thinking (cognitive distortions)
Specific approaches:
Focused suggestions for personal change
Changing and developing attitudes, behaviours, beliefs and habits
Gaining insight and speak with your ‘inner advisor’
Goal focus
Mental rehearsal for performance, sport, skill development
Relaxing the mind and the body
Self-help and personal development
Participants are responsible for notifying us of any psychological or physical health issues which may affect their ability to participate in the workshop. This workshop may be unsuitable for people with a history of psychiatric conditions or disorders. If in doubt, please seek advice from us prior to booking.

The Science of Self-Hypnosis Seminar
Cardiff 27 October 2018

£116.40 (inc VAT)
A Thorough, Evidence Based Approach To Self-Hypnosis
There are no pre-requisites for this one day seminar — all I ask is that when you book yourself on this self-hypnosis seminar, you attend with an open mind and a willingness to engage with the skills you are taught.
Some shifts in beliefs, perspectives and behaviours can happen on this self-hypnosis seminar. Everyone that attends the course and approaches it with a progressive, open mind can experience some changes, make some fascinating discoveries and learn a great deal.
Self-hypnosis is where I started my journey into this field… It helped me to make seemingly miraculous changes physiologically and psychologically that I had not dreamt possible at that stage in my life.
Much of my early work and publications on this topic have been superseded by my work “The Science of Self-Hypnosis: The Evidence Based Way to Hypnotise Yourself” which refutes a lot of the content of the earlier days of my career and much of the ‘received wisdom’ that is still prevalent in the hypnotherapy field today. As a result, this seminar now is based solidly on evidence-based principles and sits on a foundation of research studies to support what is taught.
As well as being taught the historical context of self-hypnosis from the early workings of the origins of hypnosis James Braid and his use of self-hypnosis, through to the comprehensive work on autosuggestion of Emile Coué, through to academics, developers, researchers and tinkerers of the more modern era, you’ll get to learn some of the classic applications of self-hypnosis. You’ll learn skills that will convince you without doubt of your ability to hypnotise yourself. Ranging from Emile Coués imagination experiments to more modern feats of hypnotic phenomena that leave you convinced that you are hypnotising yourself and are capable of great things with it’s application.
With the skills and information you learn on this seminar, you can let go of old habits, form new ones, use progressive hypnotic language, create wonderful new behaviours, brighten your future, excel in your career and create excellence…
There are many applications and although self-hypnosis is no panacea, the skills you learn on this seminar can be transferred to a wide number of facets of your life. You learn how to increase your ability to communicate with yourself, and how to communicate with yourself more effectively. You’ll learn how to use your imagination with great effect and a number of cognitive strategies – all of which have evidence supporting them to support their efficacy. Self-Hypnosis can be used for controlling pain, distorting your perception of time, accelerated healing, letting go of limiting behaviours and a number of other applications too – I use self-hypnosis to help me complete the multi-marathon running events I compete in each year with great effect. During this one day seminar, you learn how to do all those things… Including the time distortion, pain management and lots of other seemingly incredible applications… Self-Hypnosis is a way to enhance your control of these things.
This practical, eye-opening seminar shows you a structured and easy to follow method to take yourself into hypnosis and how to use it.

You will also learn how to use self-hypnosis for deep relaxation. The kind of specialist relaxation that Russian researchers Pavlov and Platanov developed in the 1950s. Everything is written out for you, ready to put into practice, you get a full, comprehensive course manual and several handouts. Likewise, you’ll get ongoing support if you require it with other self-hypnotists in our hypnosis hub.

The Oxford School of Hypnosis offers a range of approved CPD (Continuing Professional Development) courses which count towards the GHR's annual CPD requirement for continued registration.

2. The study hours are to be used as a guideline, and are in addition to the time required for completing the homework assignment.
3. Students should only enrol on a CPD course if the topic has not already been included on their practitioner level course.
4. Maximum time allowed for completion and submission of a homework assignment is one year, in order to receive a certificate.
5. Email/telephone support is available to students enrolling on any of the listed online CPD courses.
6. The course notes are comprehensive, and there are no accompanying CDs or mandatory reading lists.

7. I am available for teaching CPD courses on behalf of other training schools and to groups.
