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.

A Methodology for Developing Scripts – Online Diploma Certificate
Distance Learning
Many hypnotherapy students may have trained in a directive and/or heavily script-based style of therapy. They may wish to extend their expertise away from ‘off-the-shelf’ scripts and learn how to create their own, but don’t have the knowledge or confidence to do so. Even those who have trained without being script-dependent, may still struggle with developing their own and therefore resort to predominantly reading scripts.
PSI trained students are taught to work in an impromptu form, with emphasis given to tailoring interventions to an individual client’s needs. ‘Read’ scripts are rarely used.
Whatever your prior training, we hope that this methodology for developing scripts will be useful and allow you to build on your existing knowledge. This course covers everything from the PSI approach to trance-work to the actual writing of scripts, with plenty of examples throughout. The latter will include simple copy-and-paste examples of Ericksonian language patterns. You can use these partials in an ad hoc fashion when working with our step interventions or within your own scripts.
Upon successful completion of the course assessment, we will also send you a selection of complete scripts you can print out and use within your consultations.
