I first saw the benefit of hypnotherapy several years ago, when a Therapist friend of mine used his training to help a number of work colleagues overcome different debilitating issues. Its effectiveness piqued my interest and I began to read as much as I could on the subject. Having studied the Biological Sciences at Newcastle University I identified a school whose scientific approach and evidential based research into Hypnotherapy lie at the core of its curriculum. And so in 2014 I enrolled on an accredited course run by the Quest Institute at Regents Park College under the supervision of its innovative founder, and author, Trevor Silvester.
I qualified a year later and gained membership of the National Council of Hypnotherapists (NCH) whose members must be highly trained, fully insured and follow an NCH strict code of conduct. I also gained membership of the Complimentary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) a government regulated voluntary register for complementary therapists. Hypnotherapy is a fast developing area of treatment, with new ideas and new techniques being introduced every day. Staying on top of the current line of thinking is a full time job, but thankfully, is a subject that I find fascinating. Being able to translate that fascination into a way that benefits people and makes their lives more rewarding is the foundations on which the practice has been formed.
