How to be a confident hypnotherapist

I do a lot of continuing professional development training with recently qualified hypnotherapists and supervise a number of practitioners. One of the biggest issues they face is a lack of confidence. They’ve learned a range of techniques and have studied the theory in depth - maybe even sitting extensive exams - but they don’t know how to fit it all together. How do you ask a client for money without feeling embarrassed? What happens when you feel uncomfortable during a session but don’t know how to react? How do you avoid covering the… continue reading →

Detailed and flexible…

is how Stephen Towill describes the Diploma in Analytical Hypnotherapy. Here’s his full review: I would highly recommend Dr Claire Jack’s Diploma in Analytical Hypnotherapy course. I found the course very detailed and having the flexibility to schedule the dates of the course, rather than having them on a fixed classroom style arrangement really suited me. continue reading →

New Hypnotherapy training course – specialising in children’s hypnotherapy

I'm so excited to announce the forthcoming NEW hypnotherapy training course which covers all aspects of working with children. It'll be a very comprehensive course, delivered online, and covering everything from the ethical and legal considerations of working with children to how to conduct child-friendly inductions. Many hypnotherapy training courses don't cover working with children. There is a growing demand though, so this course will allow you to get in there as a qualified practitioner delivering a trademarked course. Watch this space - I'm just finalising the course so it's 100% user friendly! continue reading →

How quickly can I get hypnotherapy clients?

This is a question which I'm often asked. It's a hard one to answer, but my personal story is that I worked part time for a couple of years before starting up as a full time hypnotherapist once I'd reached a point where I realised I could earn more as a therapist than in trying to combine it with  part time work.  This is typical for many people considering a career change and it's certainly useful to have an existing income stream whilst setting up a new business. Initially you'll have a few… continue reading →

The Diploma in Analytical Hypnotherapy doesn't teach you a whole lot of techniques - it… continue reading →
