This course has been running for many years and continues to be popular amongst counsellors doing one to work and wanting to upskill into the specialism of couples work . We have found that the smaller groups are the most effective and we are now limiting the numbers to six students. Therefore it is advisable to book on the course as soon as possible. If you are too late then you will be placed on the waiting list and if numbers are sufficient we will facilitate an extra course between Spring and Autumn.

  • Learning to become calm and relaxed.


Hypnotherapy Defined

Of all the definitions of Hypnotherapy, this one by Gil Boyne is the most practical and accurate. Gil is a renowned Hypnotherapist, trainer of hypnotherapists, and founder of the American Council of Hypnotist Examiners and is well respected in this field.

Hypnosis is a natural state of mind with special identifying characteristics: An extraordinary quality of relaxation.
The organism becomes self-regulating and produces normalization of the central nervous system.
Heightened and selective sensitivity to stimuli perceived by the five senses and four basic perceptions.
The organism becomes self-regulating and produces normalization of the central nervous system.

Immediate softening of psychic defenses.”
