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


PSI Training have developed a unique model of therapy which is reflected in our distance-learning CPD courses. These have been adapted from our intensive weekend Masterclasses, which have been running since the mid-nineties. The content of each course is based on over 40 years of combined experience within the field of hypno-psychotherapy.
Course Structure: Upon enrolment, you will be sent the course material via email. To make best use of this course it is suggested that 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 section again.  You do not need to send us your answers to these questions, they are there for you to check that you have understood the course material. 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. Once you have submitted your assessment, it will be marked by our assessor who holds a Royal Society of Arts NVQ award in psychotherapy/hypnotherapy training and provided you meet the required standard, you will be issued with a Diploma Certificate and registered as having completed the course.
Please contact us if you would like further information regarding any of the courses we offer.

Working with Eating Disorders – Online Diploma Certificate
Distance Learning
Eating disorders predominantly affect women during teenage years, however, boys, and adults of both sexes can also be affected. Eating disorders are the outward expression of deeper psychological and emotional problems. Although food seems the focus of these complaints, it is the inner problems which need dealing with in order to resolve them.
Eating disorders are rarely simple issues about food. One of the most common failures of conventional treatments is that ALL the focus is on food. In hospital in-patient treatment for anorexia, for example, a carrot-and-stick approach is used to get the patient’s weight up. Sadly, however successful this may be while they are actually in hospital, the patient usually reverts to the original behaviour as soon as they are out. This is where approaches like Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy can be so much more effective.
This CPD Masterclass covers various eating disorders and other food-focused problems and the factors that typically underlie them and will extend your therapeutic repertoire in an area that is increasingly prevalent in society.
