10 Reasons Solution Focused Hypnotherapists LOVE their Career

smiling orange fruit or a happy hypnotherapist you decideYou’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hypnotherapy is safe for you and safe for your clients because we don’t use potentially damaging, old fashioned or out of date therapy.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.

Bonus 11: Solution focused hypnotherapists trust the quality of their training.  Your training is independently assessed, has a nationally recognised qualification and gives you the opportunity to go on to train for the most advanced approved hypnotherapy level training in the UK.  CPHT is highly respected within the hypnotherapy community and the founder, David Newton, has been interviewed for Radio 4 among others and spoken at the largest hypnotherapy conference in the UK.

Brain Scanners for Hypnotherapy Training

brain scanner on hypnotherapy studentCPHT strive to be at the cutting edge of available research and technology, looking for innovative ways to give the most clinical evidence to students about why solution focused hypnotherapy has such a significant and lasting effect on clients.  It’s that ‘backed up by the latest research and findings in science’ that attracts so many students and we know that your future clients will often say it is why they chose you over another hypnotherapist. We live in a world where we are beginning to be able to prove why things work, which is why we take on that responsibility as your training school.

One of the biggest challenge’s hypnotherapist have had historically is being able to explain, how and why hypnotherapy actually works.  Clients are curious as to what’s happening to them, sometimes a little nervous. Which is why we are so excited to be able to offer CPHT Kent students access to a very special piece of equipment, the Emotiv brain scanning device, so that our students can see, in glorious technicolor, what happens in the human brain when we use trance, which parts of the brain react and how trance is enhanced by the solution focused approach to therapy, when combined together.

As far as we know, CPHT is the only hypnotherapy training school to bring such advanced and innovativebrain scanner on hypnotherapy student technology into the classroom, although we hope other schools will start to use this device too; it is the first time students on a hypnotherapy training course can see what they will be doing to someone’s brain when they use trance, and how beneficial it is for the brain. Students who have seen the brain scanner in action say it took away any doubt they had about the learning they were about to embark upon and it gave them more confidence when offering trance and therapy, even from the first weekend of training.

This is a new addition to training from 2018, because CPHT Kent believe, as do all CPHT hypnotherapytraining schools, that a deeper understanding of exactly how hypnosis works improves the confidence of practitioners, which will improve client results. With this exciting piece of equipment, you can tell clients what’s going on before during and after trance.  It is possible CPHT trained hypnotherapists may be the only hypnotherapists who, with total certainty, having seen it for themselves, will be able to do that.


If you want to be at the cutting edge of hypnotherapy, make a real difference to the clients and have a successful career in hypnotherapy, this could be the right Course for you.  To find out about the next hypnotherapy diploma course run by CPHT Kent call  07780 592625 or click this link to send us an application form today.

How Do You Choose Your Hypnotherapy Training School?

A student completes her courseworkWhen you first go looking for a hypnotherapy training course you’ll notice there is a dizzying choice of courses, delivery styles, course lengths, qualification levels and more, so how do you pick your hypnotherapy training school?

In order to narrow down your choices, first decide what it is you want to achieve – what’s your goal? Is it fun street hypnosis that has become so popular on TV recently that attracts you, self-hypnosis to help you with pain or another symptom you’d like to control, a mild curiosity of how you work or are you looking to change your career or add a very valuable string to your professional bow? There will be courses to fit all of those choices.

There are some truly skilled street and performance hypnotists, and learning from them won’t require you to do a diploma. Self-hypnosis can be learned very quickly in a day or so, but you can still gain a certificate, but not one that allows you to practice as a hypnotherapist. If a career change is what you are looking for then a diploma course is the best route.

And then have a think about your style; many people say they chose solution focused hypnotherapy because they like it being based on brain based research and backed by neuroscience.  They liked the evidence based approach and knew it would be able to help them explain what they did and help people get their lives back on track. If you are more science than spiritual in your approach to therapy then a CPHT Kent diploma course could suit you.

CPHT Kent diploma courses are delivered by experienced practicing hypnotherapists to the same high standards as all Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training Schools. The course is externally accredited by the NCFE and allows you to apply for membership to all the most well respected governing bodies including the NCH (National Council for Hypnotherapy), GHR (General Hypnotherapy Register), CNCH (Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council ) and AfSFH Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapists.

Your diploma, the Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma is externally verified by the NCFE (a nationally recognised awarding body) at a level 4, which is equivalent to a foundation degree level qualification.

Your training itself is practical, enjoyable and can be a lot of fun. CPHT Kent student learn about how the brain works, how it creates so many of the problems your clients will have, and how to help them recover. You’ll look at the evidence and research behind many issues including OCD, anxiety, depression, weight management, smoking, phobias, addictions, panic attacks, pain management.

You will be encouraged to begin practicing with people straight away and throughout your course; many students have completed 50-100 hours of therapy sessions by the time they qualify. We support you to get into practice, if that’s what you are intending to do, by helping you understand your marketing and signposting you towards best practice in business set up.

Once you are qualified and in practice we can continue to support you as your supervisor and colleague, making the leap from student to practitioner as simple and straightforward as possible.  And the wonderful thing about training with CPHT Kent is that you have access to a full range of well researched CPD courses, so that you can continue to receive the same high standard of learning as you continue your professional development and career.

Is Hypnotherapy On A Couch Better?

Hypnotherapist and clientYou’d not believe the this is even a topic of conversation; whether a chair or a couch is better for your hypnotherapy room, but it is! It’s almost laughable but, as well as when to start charging, how much you are going to charge, whether to have your photo on your business cards, how often you need to see your clients and where to advertise, and all the other questions we hope to answer for you during your training, this will be a BIG deal when you are a student.

When we decided to write this article, we thought our hypnotherapist friends from all over the world would have strong opinions, so we asked them and the results can be found at the end of the article.  In the meantime, let us explore the question further.

As hypnosis can ultimately be done standing up (think about the street hypnotists and stage hypnotists having their ‘subjects’ walking and talking and engaging in all sorts of activities) why do we even bother trying to make it comfortable for our clients when they come to see us?

And this is where it gets a little more serious, because our clients are coming to us for therapy not to be entertained or entertain.  They are coming to us for help, most often to overcome something unwanted or painful and to get back to a happier, more engaged and productive version of themselves.  Hypnotherapy is one of the fastest growing careers in the UK, and there is growing understanding and a huge body of evidence to support the value of working directly with the subconscious during therapy, to effect positive change.

If you train with CPHT Kent you’ll find, as a newly qualified solution focused hypnotherapist, you’ll still meet people who are a little nervous of coming to see you, simply because their only experience of hypnosis is via entertainment, which means your job as a helping professional, is to put them at ease.  You’ll learn to create a welcoming, calming space that shows they are in the hands of a well-trained, confident and safe therapist.

Turns out our hypnotherapy friends aren’t fussed at all.  Emma, from Inspired To Change Winkleigh summed up the general feeling “As long as the client is comfy and so are you, it’s going to be fab.”

The considerations to make when choosing what your clients will relax on, is more to do with how physically supported they will feel, whether it is accessible for most clients, weight bearing level of the chair or couch and what room you have in your clinic. Ultimately, you’ll want your clients to feel comfortable in and out of trance.  You will often have a blanket for comfort and because our temperature drops slightly in trance, perhaps a foot rest or a cushion for added support.  There are no hard and fast rules so choose whatever suits you.

Does Hypnotherapy Work?

Students and clients ask – Does Hypnotherapy Work?

Hypnotherapy worksAs a hypnotherapist you’ll be asked many times whilst you’re in training and throughout your career, ‘Does Hypnotherapy Work?’ and you must find a way to answer it positively.

At first you too might even be a little sceptical; you’ll not be the first student to sign up without being 100% sure that what you’re signing up to isn’t smoke and mirrors.  Before beginning your training, many haven’t even had hypnotherapy, so truly don’t know the answer to the question, does hypnotherapy work?

When you start learning, you’ll know that not only does it work but it works very well!  If the hundreds of previous CPHT students are anything to go by you’ll get hooked and, because at CPHT we expect you to start seeing people straight away for simple relaxation, you’ll start trying to explain it.

Many of your friends and family might not believe you, but that’s only because they don’t know that hypnotherapy has hundreds if not thousands of research papers pointing to its efficacy in treating many issues.  They certainly won’t know that CPHT has been conducting its own research programme, now associated with Bristol University, for almost 10 years, with data from Solution Focused Hypnotherapists all over the UK.

From frustration, righteous indignation, pity, outrage, evangelical zeal, face palming and disdain for the unenlightened…you’ll experience a rollercoaster of emotions as you try to convince them that hypnotherapy works.

However, as you go through your training, gain experience in practice and gather evidence and experience of your own, you will learn how to answer the question more confidently.  The huge benefit of working as a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist is that you’ll learn to answer the question sooner, because your training is backed up by the latest findings in neuroscience and you practice a measurable and reliable form of hypnotherapy that uses the best of the best in modern therapy, explained in a way that makes sense to your clients.

We know that potential clients respond to science and proof so much more readily because we live in an age when long held questions are being answered.  CPHT is the only school in the UK to be using brain imaging equipment in the classroom, so you’ll soon be able to watch it yourself – the ultimate proof.

When people around you start seeing results, experiencing results and talking about your results, the question of whether hypnotherapy works stops coming up so often, but on occasion you will still be asked – does hypnotherapy work?

At this point you will smile confidently and say ‘Yes! of course hypnotherapy works, here are my testimonials to prove it… and when would you like to book?’

How To Deal With A Flying Phobia

Hypnotherapy Training Kent - Flying PhobiaI could hardly believe what I was hearing – this flying phobia had cost my client £0000s in lost flights, missed trips and they had stopped planes on the runway to get off, more than once.

Another tale from the casebook of Ali Hollands, CPHT Kent Lecturer

Did you read about the mouse phobia that was so severe, even hypnotherapist Ali Hollands was intimidated by it?  This is another story from her casebook; this time, a severe flying phobia.

The holiday of a lifetime with the person you love should be something to look forward to right?  The highlight of your year? Not for Andi.  Andi had suffered for many, many years with a phobia of flying that was so intense that she wouldn’t take checked baggage on holiday, because she was never sure if she would actually make it off the runway, had stopped planes more than once to get off or deliberately missed them altogether.

Andi came to see me because she had taken herself off another flight and lost £0000s on an unused ticket for a long haul, dream destination flight. Her girlfriend had taken the flight and was now in a far flung destination without her. She had booked tickets for the end of the following week and asked if I could do something with so little notice to get her on the flights.  Normally sessions are spread out over weekly appointments, but occasionally we need to speed up the process.  I promised I would throw everything at it and that we would do our best to get her on that plane!

We did some intense work, but mostly exactly as I normally would – reducing the stimulus to something that didn’t induce a phobic response and then replacing with how she really wanted to be on her flights from now on.

When I received the text from a far away place, just a few days later, I was so happy for Andi, she was with the person she loved, in an amazing place, having the time of her life and the flight (and connecting flight!) had been absolutely fine.

There have been other, wonderful, life enhancing phobia fixes that have meant someone able to go for walks in the country without fear of frogs, get up and speak to other businesses and tell their amazing story, drive their children to school and nursery so they can go back to work…the list goes on.’

For every phobia there is a person living less that their fullest and most enjoyable life. This is what’s it like to work as a solution focused hypnotherapist, in fact, You might already be starting to think about what life after qualification might be like while you read about Andi’s flying phobia. Imagine if it was you that had set them free to really live again.  What would that be like for you?

If you’ve been inspired by Ali’s story, why not take charge of your future too and apply to be on our next course.  Training is over 10 months and you’ll be working towards the Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD), the only nationally recognised and independently assessed hypnotherapy qualification in the UK.  Click here to apply now

What You’ll Find Out At A Hypnotherapy Training Open Evening

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world ~ Nelson Mandela

When looking for the hypnotherapy training that’s best for you, after checking out the website and reading the reviews the most logical step is to meet your hypnotherapy training lecturers at an open evening or open day event.

This gives you the chance to meet the people training you, check out your training environment and most importantly, get all your questioned answered so you can make the best choice for your hypnotherapy training.

CPHT Kent offer several open evening dates for our potential hypnotherapy students to come along, meet us and find out what makes CPHT the fastest growing hypnotherapy training provider in the UK.

We run CPHT Kent open evenings are at our Hypnotherapy Training venue – The Friars Conference Centre in Aylesford in Kent, because it means when you come along for your first weekend of training you’ll already be familiar with your surroundings.

We run them in the evening because our students, who are often career changers or returners, have found this is the easiest time for you to come along.

CPHT Kent Hypnotherapy Training open evening events are informal, in a Q & A style, because, we’ve found this style has given our hypnotherapy students the best opportunity to get the information you need to make the right decision for you.

What you can expect at one of our Hypnotherapy Training Open Evenings:

  • Meet both your lecturers
  • See your teaching room and the venue
  • Have access to more information about the course and your future career
  • An informal and welcoming environment
  • Ample opportunity to ask questions
  • Get expert and open responses about every aspect of your training and future career
  • Access to two successful practitioners who run busy practices and tell it like it is
  • Two very passionate people who want to help you make the right choice for you

What you won’t get at one of our hypnotherapy training open evenings

  • Hard Sell – that’s just icky and we don’t do icky.
  • Formal interviews – it isn’t a job interview and your life experience is probably the most important aspect of your skill as a future therapist. We want to meet the real you.
  • Boring presentations – because we want to deliver what you want to know about
  • Therapists who don’t practice, who don’t understand the real world of hypnotherapy today. Hypnotherapy is the fastest growing profession in the UK and we believe that no student should ever be taught by someone who doesn’t practice and understand what it takes to be a successful hypnotherapist.

What you’ll leave with at the end of a CPHT Kent hypnotherapy training open evening

  • Clarity – you’ll know if this is the course for you
  • Simple Next Steps – we give you everything you need and follow up with an email in case you don’t remember everything
  • Confidence – that you’ll be getting the most science based, practical training in hypnotherapy in the UK, delivered by successful and skilled lecturers and therapists.

We don’t currently have any open evenings booked, because our next course starts January 2019, but if you’ve been inspired by this, why not take charge of your future too and apply to be on our next course.  Training is over 10 months and you’ll be working towards the Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD), the only nationally recognised and independently assessed hypnotherapy qualification in the UK.  Click here to apply now

How To Deal With A Mouse Phobia

Even I was intimidated by this phobia; I’d never seen one so severe and only the fact that I have really good training, allowed me to stay confident for my client.

From the casebook of Ali Hollands, CPHT Kent Lecturer

What’s it like to work as a solution focused hypnotherapist? You might already starting to think about what life after qualification might be like, after all your hypnotherapy training is finished and your portfolio signed off…when you are growing a hypnotherapy practice of your own.

Here Ali Hollands, who runs her own busy practice as well as lecturing for CPHT Kent, shares a story of from her busy casebook, about a specific phobia, which is from one of the most common issues you will see once you’ve qualified as a solution focused hypnotherapist.  Just think, in just a few months, this could be you!

The Mouse Phobia Even I Was Intimidated By

‘Marie was a woman of around the same age as me; smart as a whip, funny and so down to earth. Then, when she told me in all seriousness (I knew she wasn’t joking, by the look on her face!), she would rather be dead than encounter a mouse, I knew I had my work cut out.

Marie’s phobia was inherited from her mother and she shared it with her sisters, who would, as siblings do, wind each other up over their shared terror…who needs family eh? She found mice disgusting, hated them with a passion and would find herself checking every dark looking speck on the floor or in cupboards to see if it was a mouse dropping; she knew she was being unreasonable.

The reason she had come to see me was because of the most recent episode, when she had moved out of her home for a whole week after seeing a mouse, had more than one pest control service in and now felt unsafe in her home, a place she normally loved.

After 3 sessions Marie said she had walked into the hardware shop to buy something, but had taken herself down the aisle with the pest control.  She said she had picked up a box and was able to look at the box without feeling faint, angry or disgusted…she even admitted that mice were possibly quite cute.  After the 4th session she was completely confident she would be able to cope with whatever mouse related incidents might come her way.

This phobia had even intimidated me, but I shouldn’t have been, even though I am still sometimes amazed and awed by how powerful hypnotherapy can be!

There have been other, wonderful, life enhancing phobia fixes that have meant my clients are able to go for walks in the country without fear of frogs, get up and speak to other businesses and tell their amazing story, drive their children to school and nursery so they can go back to work…the list goes on.’

For every phobia there is a person living less that their fullest and most enjoyable life.  Imagine if it was you that had set them free to really live again.  What would that be like for you?
