You’ll recognise a solution focused hypnotherapist by their smile, their confidence and their openness about what they do and exactly how they help people, but what makes a solution focused hypnotherapist love their career so much? We asked some of our friends and graduate solution focused hypnotherapists and this is what they said.
1: You’ll feel like a superhero, because you are literally changing people’s lives every day. What you do, as a solution focused hypnotherapist, is important; you help people get their lives back on track. By changing their world you are changing the world. You make a positive difference.
2: You are in charge of when and how much you work. If you are fed up with working for other people, doing a job that isn’t important or being stopped from doing what’s right in a job that is important, being a solution focused hypnotherapist will give you flexibility and freedom to work at times that suit you.
3: You can work from home. Although many SF hypnotherapists work in clinics, many also work from a dedicated therapy room in their home. Quite often their children have moved out and they have space to use, or convert a garage or summerhouse into a therapy room. Wherever you decide to work, it is up to you.
4: It is simple. Solution focused hypnotherapy is a modern form of hypnotherapy that, although isn’t necessarily easy to do, is simple for your clients to understand and because they ‘get it’ they move forward quickly. Simple means that what seemed like overwhelming issues, for your clients, can be overcome by making consistent small changes. It makes the impossible, possible.
5: It is evidence and science based. Many people who were, or continue to be, in the medical profession train for a career as a solution focused hypnotherapist because this is one of the few forms of hypnotherapy that is evidence based and underpinned by the latest findings in neuroscience.
6: It is safe. Solution focused hypnotherapy is safe for you and safe for your clients because we don’t use potentially damaging, old fashioned or out of date therapy. We know that, in order to resolve the past it is NOT necessary and sometimes unhelpful or harmful to do delve into it. Your clients enjoy it more and, because we explain how the brain works, feel in control and empowered when they are working with you.
7: It is fun. It is no wonder solution focused hypnotherapist love their career; in solution focused hypnotherapy we encourage our clients to enjoy their sessions, laughter is helpful and we can laugh with them. We don’t go through boxes or tissue every week, our clients look forward to their sessions and feel better after each one.
8: Lots of variety. In the morning you might be helping someone stop smoking, follow that helping someone get back to work after a bought of depression, in the afternoon help someone go for a promotion, and finish the day helping a teenager overcome exam nerves. You’ll never be bored because every day is different and you always end the day feeling liked you’ve helped.
9: You’ll be learning all the time and can pursue your interests. Every day we are discovering more about how the brain works and the field of neuroscience and neuroscience based therapies is developing fast. This means, as your training school, we want to keep up with those advances. Rather than relying on outmoded thinking we find out what the best of the best of therapy has to offer and use that to keep you up to date in your learning.
10: You have control of your career and your finances. Hypnotherapy is currently the fastest growing industry in the UK and solution focused hypnotherapy, as taught by CPHT, is recognised as one of the most successful and reputable forms of hypnotherapy that delivers consistent results.
