PSI Training
(Mike Garrett & Nicki Pinkney)
Location: Distance Learning

Ref No: 2339
Working with Couples – Online Diploma Certificate
Distance Learning
There are surprisingly few therapists who choose to work with couples. Perhaps to some, having two people sat in their consulting room may appear somewhat intimidating, particularly if the relationship between the two of them is antagonistic. However, once you understand the dynamics, it becomes surprisingly easy to adapt your existing therapeutic skillset, in order to offer this rewarding therapy to those needing it.
The purpose of this training is to give you a better understanding of the dynamics involved, the problems and issues you may encounter and some interventions you can use, adding a further modality to your repertoire, which in turn, gives you that Unique Selling Point.
Extend your client range by learning how to adapt your therapeutic skills to dealing with relationship problems. Couples are made-up of individuals and once the expectation and communication issues have been resolved, therapy naturally moves on to treatment of the individuals.

Course Structure:
PSI Training have developed a unique model of therapy, which is reflected in our distance-learning CPD courses. These have been adapted from our weekend intensive Masterclasses, which have been running since the mid-nineties.
Upon enrolment, you will be sent the course material via email. To make best use of this course, it is suggested you read through all of the material at least once or twice, before starting to answer the questions at the end of each section. If you have difficulty in answering any question, go back and re-read the relevant part again.??
When you feel confident that you have absorbed the content, get in touch with us and we will send you the final assessment for you to complete and return for marking. We offer support throughout. Upon a successful assessment, you will be issued with a Diploma Certificate and registered as having completed the course, which is equivalent to 20 CPD hours. The assessor holds a Royal Society of Arts NVQ award in psychotherapy/hypnotherapy training.
CPD: 20 Hours
Additional information/requirements: PSI Training also run bespoke workshops for hypnotherapy groups, peer groups and corporate clients, throughout the UK and Europe. All of our workshops and CPDs are the culmination of over 40 years experience within hypno-psychotherapy.
