What separates a good therapist from a mediocre hypnotherapist is their ability to truly, actively listen. You could have a whole range of wonderful Hypnotherapy ‘tools’ up your sleeve – but so does a stage hypnotist, and they’re certainly not doing anything therapeutically valuable! Active listening involves giving your client the time and space to talk, to respect what they have to say without judgement and to show them that you have ‘heard’ them, by reflecting their words and metaphors back to them. During the Diploma course we spend a considerable amount of time ensuring that you learn to truly listen to your client and emerge as the most effective, ethical therapist possible.
