Learn the meta principles of hypnotic change
7th-8th December 2019
This course has been developed to help the practitioner of hypnosis to move beyond the limitations of techniques into the understanding and application of the deeper principles of creating change with clients.
When you attend this course you can expect to join up the dots which form a far greater level of understanding of both your clients presenting problem and the hypnotic solution which works.
The difference in this approach is it allows the practitioner to work organically by accessing the underpinning structures that your client is using to create their problematic context.
The learnings will make your existing knowledge and skill even more effective. The creator vision of understanding allows a greater ability to work more instinctively through observation.
When you attend you’ll be learning through the focussed distillation of the underpinning theory and ideas. Practical demonstrations, Practice sessions and the supportive learning environment which is for you to meet your learning requirement and context. You’ll also have the advantage of learning on both a conscious and unconscious level to understand and have a instinctive use of the skills.

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.
•Therapies used
•Understanding relationships
•Common relationship problems (including communication issues, intimacy issues, sexual issues, trust/infidelity and violence/abuse)
•The psycho-biology of gender
•Structure of consultations
•How to handle the initial dual consultations
•Assessing readiness to change
•How to move the process of therapy on
•How to analyse the conflicts and use solution-focused techniques to clarify objectives and misunderstandings
•Information gathering (incl. conflicts, relationship models, perceptual style)
•Deciding on outcomes
•Dual Interventions (incl. Contextual reframing, sequence disruption, semantic challenges)
•NLP and hypnotherapeutic interventions
•Homework assignment for clients
•Case studies
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.

Ref No: 2801
Advanced Hypnotherapy Diploma Online Course
£1,140 (inc VAT)
- Offers a clear advancement on your initial hypnotherapy training.
- Encourages academic, critical and reflective thinking on clinical practice, learning and ethics in hypnotherapy.
- Is substantive, distinctive and engaging; not simply ‘more of the same.’
- Provides new knowledge, skills, philosophies, approaches and techniques.
- Encourages a considered, respectful, yet critical approach to hypnotherapy research.
- Develops the practitioner’s extra-clinical abilities e.g. setting up a peer group, reflecting effectively and getting the best from supervision.
- Sets engaging and challenging homework that has practical utility in encouraging use of the skills learnt as well as developing a student’s understanding.
This ONLINE Advanced Hypnotherapy Course uses the video taken at our ten day intensive classroom course.
You are required to have a diploma level qualification for entry onto this accredited course. As well as being accredited CPD with the GHR and the GHSC, you will receive a certification and be able to use the title ‘Advanced Hypnotherapist’ upon working through this course and completing the coursework showing you have achieved the required learning outcomes.
An advanced hypnotherapy diploma needs to build upon and of course, advance existing skills and knowledge.
What’s Included?
- Models of hypnosis and an in depth analysis of theorising in hypnotherapy
Whilst we look at the evidence base for the models and examine the academic underpinnings and critiques of these models, we also debate and discuss the value of the academic approach, how it compares to the reality of the therapy room, and what that means for us as hypnotherapists. We learn and place great emphasis on how to convert knowledge and theory into practical applications that are directly useable in our hypnotherapy sessions.
We also learn how to make that information available to our clients to help them derive as much benefit as possible from hypnotherapy with you. We build greatly upon the existing understanding of hypnosis and how it is conceptualised.
In depth examination of psychological models of change
Beyond hypnosis, we learn about specific models of change that can be very relevant and applicable to the hypnotherapist. We examine highly evidence based models as well as models that are very popular among effective and pioneering therapists and we examine how they apply to hypnotherapy.
We critique and explore the models of change and how they can be used as an underlying philosophy that guides the hypnotherapist. Importantly, we again learn how to implement these models of change into our practical work in the therapy room to advance our own effectiveness and in turn, the benefits derived by the client.
- The underlying factors that facilitate change or hamper the therapeutic process
We closely revisit, scrutinise, build upon and then move beyond rapport and the working alliance. We progress to examining and managing expectations, methods of altering context and advanced ways to set a frame for effective hypnotherapy, we look at personal traits that impede therapy and how to deal with them, we examine extratherapeutic factors and a great deal more
Advanced questioning techniques and strategies
We learn how to use questions therapeutically, how to import questions from a wide variety of disciplines including the fields of coaching, CBT, family therapy, NLP and even explore the fields of philosophy and politics for advanced approaches to questioning techniques, types of questions and how they create change.
We also look at how to use questions to establish working alliance and advance the models of change and hypnosis we have explored in detail.
- Advanced Clinical Approaches
We examine a wide number of interventions that require diploma level understanding and draw upon a number of varying fields. We include many techniques used by some of the most prominent and pioneering therapists in the world. This includes approaches and techniques that require humour and provocation as well as specific approaches to language, and then also more standardised, sober, highly evidence based procedures.
There are many interventions, strategies and techniques here that will greatly advance the repertoire of any hypnotherapist.
- Advanced approaches to specific issues
We go into depth on dealing with some common specific issues – how to construct a treatment plan, the types of interventions to be used, we examine the evidence base, but also go into depth about how to research it for yourself too.
The knowledge of dealing with these specific issues will be transferable to many other conditions cited by your clients. The specific issues have been chosen due to the approach and methodologies employed being applicable to such a broad ranging spectrum of other issues that your clients present in therapy.
- Modern Advances in the Field
You are kept abreast of the up-to-date research, the most important recent breakthroughs and the methodologies used. You will also learn about popular methods that hypnotherapists are getting impressive results with that have little evidence, but have featured in the media or are being made popular by leading trainers and pioneers from the fields of NLP, CBT and hypnotherapy.
You’ll have techniques explained, new applications revealed and the latest concepts explored from the fields of cognitive psychology, neuroscience, academic hypnosis, CBT and how they can be used by hypnotherapists.
- Critical Thinking and Statistics
On this course, you are given insight into the processes that hypnosis scholars and academics employ, how researchers work and how to critically examine the work of academics in relation to the field of hypnotherapy and hypnotism.
We examine myths that pervade the field, we examine how to apply logic but also learn how to challenge academia, become aware of how we accept knowledge and examine the risk of too much personal theorising and investment in singular approaches or stances We also look at how to examine statistics, how they are used in the field of hypnotherapy and how they can be interpreted in a wide variety of ways.
We examine how the media uses statistics and how we can find the best use of statistics to give accurate, impressive and honest information to develop our hypnotherapy businesses and help inform clients and raise their beliefs.
We examine research methodologies and the ways hypnosis has been researched, as well as citing some of the flaws in that research, and of course how to access it – and what conclusions we can draw and also how this effects our practical work in real-life terms.
- Ethics and Ongoing Development
We examine a wide range of ethical issues surrounding the field of hypnotherapy and discover how to exact the highest ethical standards possible within our work.
We examine the ethics behind a number of popular techniques and approaches, how what we do influences our client’s lives beyond therapy, and we also examine how ethics can challenge us on occasion.
We examine in depth the best ways to develop professionally; we examine how to get the very most and best from supervision, reflective practice and CPD.
We then go beyond supervision, reflective practice and CPD and look at other ways to develop your skills, enhance your knowledge, and other avenues to develop your business.
You get a manual and lots of handouts as well as being guided towards articles, research papers, and core texts that will help you build and become a fully advanced hypnotherapist.
This Advanced Practitioner Level training is accredited with the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC) and the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR) and fulfils their requirements for this award.
You’ll receive your certification having attended class, actively participated in class exercises and completed the coursework.
The coursework is a single questionnaire comprising of essay style questions and 4 hypothetical case studies.
Some of the needs for advanced hypnotherapy training are as follows:
- Improve standards and service to the public.
- Engage newly qualified hypnotherapists with quality CPD and to see its value.
- Invigorate and inform the practice of experienced practitioners.
- Encourage higher level, academic and critical thinking.
- Instil the importance of better quality reflective practice.
- Promote new perspectives, build a diversity of approaches.
- Properly understand the the evidence base of the field of hypnotherapy.
- Know the literature well – it underpins our practical skills and advances them in turn.
- To become a more successful hypnotherapist whose clients derive greater gains and successful benefits.
Hypnotherapists are not the only ones who benefit from this, by becoming better at what they do, they get to raise the standards of the field in general terms, this is good for us all because the perception of the public becomes better and rosier and it is better for clients who derive more gain, more professionalism, better results.
The raison d’être of an advanced hypnotherapy training programme is to offer the hypnotherapist a clear advancement on the original hypnotherapy training. It needs to be substantive, wholly distinctive and healthily challenging, not simply offering ‘more of the same’ that was taught on an initial diploma course. it provides new knowledge, new skills, new philosophies, new approaches, new techniques and encourages a considered, respectful and healthily critical exploration of hypnotherapy research.

The Accidental Hypnotist – An Open Minded Approach

My aim with this book is to share my experiences of this wondrous field we call hypnosis, supported by discussions of standard theories and models. As our understanding of brain function unfolds so too will more concepts of the form and practice of hypnotism. We may even be calling it by a new name in the not-too-distant future; ‘mesmerism’ wasn’t the first name used, and ‘hypnosis’ may not be the last. ‘Mindfulness’ is one term in vogue at the moment, as is ‘guided visualization’.
I titled the book the Accidental Hypnotist as my aim is to help spread the realisation that hypnosis is actually a naturally occurring phenomenon that each of us experience on a daily basis. It has been said that “You cannot not influence”; once you can accept that everything you say and do influences you and those around you it is only a small step to grasp that we each put ourselves and each other into a natural trance. When you plan a holiday, consider how a redecorated room will look, imagine excelling at a sport etc. it is your imagination that motivates you to succeed or fail; it is self-hypnosis by another name.
It’s your brain so it seems the study of how to get it to do what you want it to do is a useful pursuit.
