Dr Bridget Cook is a successful and experienced chiropractor, so why did she decide to add a diploma in solution focused hypnotherapy to her skill-set? Here, Bridget share’s her reasons and experiences of adding another string to her bow.
Currently I am a Chiropractor training in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, which might seem a little odd. However, there are actually a lot of overlaps. Many of my Chiropractic patients re-present repeatedly with aches and pains caused by posture, injury and more than often driven by an element of stress and tension which means hypnotherapy can be very beneficial, to not just for mental wellbeing but that of the physical body too.
Chiropractic is a very physical job and, due to my genetics, it is likely that I won’t be able to physically do my job right up to retirement age. I wanted to find a way to continue to help people out of pain, even when I can no longer practise Chiropractic and training to be a hypnotherapist will enable me to do this.
I have benefitted myself from learning about and understanding, how the brain works and what a healthy mind looks and feels like. I am half way through my training and I feel lighter, brighter and confident. The trials and tribulations of life still happen but they are more manageable and I see a future full of helping people feel the same way.
If you’ve been inspired by Bridget’s story, why not take charge of your future too and apply to be on our next course.
