We are Solution Focused Hypnotherapists through and through. We originally trained under David Newton at CPHT Bristol in 2007/2008, gaining a Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy and the prestigious Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD). Subsequently we gained a separate Diploma in SFBT (Solution Focused Brief Therapy) Training for Hypnotherapists.
We then went on to help establish the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH) and recently we have set up a satellite CPHT school in Guildford, training students to become Solution Focused Hypnotherapists. We are thoroughly enjoying helping our Guildford students become confident, effective SF practitioners.
Interest in the SF approach has been increasing in recent years, fueled by the findings in Neuroscience about brain ‘plasticity’ and the impact of positive mental rehearsal. The approach appeals to clients who wish to move forward rather than analyse their past.
We were delighted when David Newton invited us to develop a SFH Conversion course to enable experienced, qualified Hypnotherapists become proficient in this powerful approach. We have based the course on the SF aspects of the HPD course and the SFBT Training for Hypnotherapists Diploma syllabus.
With thriving practices in Somerset and Devon, we have seen at first hand the tremendous power of the Solution Focused approach. The techniques can be applied to help with a range of conditions and, although simple in principle, take practice to implement effectively.
The great strength of CPHT courses is that they place great emphasis on the practical application of the techniques and the SFH Conversion course is no different. As well as learning the underpinning knowledge, participants will have plenty of opportunity to put theory into practice.
We are looking forward to sharing our enthusiasm, knowledge and experience with practising Hypnotherapists who wish to convert to the Solution Focused approach.
