A day in the life of a hypnotherapist

A Hypnotherapist has a very varied life!

Snakes, spiders, heights, flying… these are common phobias clients arrive at our therapy door with.  There are also some more unusual ones, such as a fear of the colour yellow, a fear of trees and a fear of cheese, yes cheese!

A career, sometimes even a day as a clinical hypnotherapist can be very varied.  The above list of phobias is just the tip of the phobia iceberg, and we work with many other areas in addition to helping our customers sort their phobias. 

Anxiety

The vast majority of our work is helping people to overcome generalised anxiety.  Anxiety is so common in today’s society.  Symptoms have a vast range, from insomnia through to actual pain; from eating too much through to not eating enough; from biting nails to pulling hair out.  All can be caused by anxiety.

No matter what the issues, we can usually help the customer to reduce the anxiety surrounding the problem and regain intellectual control. This is extremely rewarding for both the therapist and customer alike.

Hypnotherapy Training

At Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training (CPHT), we teach our students how to deal with the huge variety of issues that their customers will present with.  Different techniques, including the 4-session technique to help overcome phobias and the one-session way of helping someone to stop smoking. When it comes to general anxiety, we know it can take 6-8-12 sessions (sometimes more) to help overcome anxiety. However, we have a ‘client progress’ software tool that allows us to keep track of how quickly clients move forward and this shows some very good results indeed.  It also motivates the client when they see their progress in graph form.

So if you’d like to know more, either read about the course via the HPD tab at the top of this page or call Nicola one of our Senior Lecturers, on 0773 866 5172.
