Google ‘evidence for an increase in anxiety’ and you’ll get over 2 million hits. Hypnotherapists in practice are telling us that anxiety-related conditions form a greater part of their practice than ever before. So you need an excellent level of knowledge about working with anxiety, and a variety of tools, to successfully help your clients.
This intensive one-day course covers:
the biology of anxiety and how it is treated by medical practitioners
recognising different anxiety-related conditions
a variety of tools and techniques to help you collect the right information to provide effective therapy
psychological explanations of anxiety – how different theories can inform our choice of techniques
effective techniques and tools for clients both in and out of trance, drawing on both counselling and hypnotherapy skills.
We provide:
comprehensive information and notes*
handouts, leaflets and proformas, ready to insert your practice details and use with clients
hypnotherapy scripts
*This comes in two parts. First, about a month before the course, we’ll send you an ebook containing background information and a multiple-choice questionnaire which can be handed in on the day of the workshop. We anticipate this will take most people around 2 hours. Then, at the workshop, you’ll be given detailed notes, and a memory stick/download of resources to use with clients.

Work Confidently with Stress & Anxiety
Distance Learning Pack
In 2017, over 500,000 workers in the UK were suffering with work-related stress, anxiety or depression, according to the survey by The Health and Safety Executive UK. It was found that 44% felt it was workload related. That also equated to 12 and a half million lost work days. Specific jobs have also been identified as having higher stress levels; healthcare workers, teachers, business public service industries and the media.
As hypnotherapists, we can teach these individuals coping strategies and provide them with practical tools to better deal with their own personal stress & anxiety levels. This is one of the most common issues I personally see regularly in my practise. So, it’s not surprising that over the years I have mentally put together a best practice method for dealing with this issue.
The programme focuses on
•Teaching client’s practical tools to use if necessary.
•Being aware & taking control of their stress & anxiety levels.
•Developing a more positive mindset and a different point of view.
•Creating a better work life balance.
A recent client sent me this lovely message:
“I loved our sessions. You first of all listened, identified the cause of the issues and then created tools using my geeky language. Your methods are practical, easy to understand and really help with the stresses and things life presents to us. It is hard to express the huge positive impact you had on me. Thank you Helen“
You will learn exactly how to help and teach these clients to manage their stress & anxiety. How to mentally switch off. Become mentally stronger and have strategies in place that are easy to maintain & use in any situation. How to adapt clinical methods to suit the client.
A short while ago a client’s family member stopped me in the street to say
“Thank you for everything you are doing for my brother. It is making a big difference. It is great to see him smiling and being part of the family again. He is so much more relaxed now that he is able to manage his stress. So, thank you Helen.”
The Programme consists of:
•Comprehensive training manual.
•Background information.
•Comprehensive ‘toolbox’ of practical methods to teach your clients that work.
•Scripts for a 6 session programme.
•Recorded 2 day training replays
•1 hour 1 to 1 video conference to discuss any questions you have after you have completed the training.
Stand out from the crowd, and be the stress & anxiety expert in your area. Be the go to hypnotherapist.
Because I really want to help you to help your stressed & anxious clients, this downloadable Distance
Secure your training now, Don’t miss out on this great opportunity.
Do think about how many potential extra clients this training could bring to your practice.
Stand out from the crowd and help your clients to a happier life.

The Oxford School of Hypnotherapy
(Reena Biswas)
Distance Learning


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.
The aim of the masterclasses is to enable qualified hypnotherapists and other therapists experienced in the application of applied hypnosis, to add to their existing skills and knowledge.


1. Each CPD course requires the student to complete a homework assignment after studying the course notes. This typically consists of an analysis of a hypothetical case study.
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/WhatsApp 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.

8. Refunds are not available for online courses. Even if the document is emailed back, deleted and the Recycle Bin emptied, it remains on the hard drive of the computer, and can be accessed at any time, by anyone.
9. Prospective students are advised that they read the CPD course summaries, and ask questions or seek clarification, and only enrol on a course when they are fully satisfied that it would be suitable for them.

10. All CPD course notes are comprehensive and self-explanatory. However, students enrolling on a CPD course have the option of an extra hour on ZOOM for an additional £20. This is not mandatory.
