As Solution-Focused Hypnotherapists, research is very important to us. We want to know that what we are doing with our clients really does work. So, if new evidence becomes available that suggests we need to change the way we work, then we will. Equally, there is an increasing amount of good quality evidence now that suggests that the Solution-Focused approach is effective along with the benefits of hypnosis.
The scientific area of Neuroscience is steadily releasing the brain’s secrets, an organ of the body that was once considered to be of little importance. In the 4th century BC, Aristotle thought that the brain was a cooling mechanism for the blood and that the heart was the seat of intelligence. We have come a long way since then!
As Solution-Focused Hypnotherapists we base what we do on the latest brain research and neuroscience to help clients get back to being their true selves. At CPHT we make sure that our students understand the importance of research and how it helps us to become better therapists. Everything within the course can be backed up by the latest research and neuroscientific endeavour.
CPHT is part of a National research programme called Clifton Practice Outcome Ratings Programme or CORP.
CORP graph showing the difference between one practice and the average of all other therapists.
All our students are encouraged to take part in CORP and the cost of the first year membership is included in the course fees. It is the largest research programme of its type within the UK. It is designed to gather information of the effectiveness of Solution-Focused Hypnotherapy. However, it also reinforces the hypnotherapy sessions for the client in a positive and unobtrusive way. Students and clients can observe their progress based on the client’s own figures which can be incredibly reassuring. Students can also see how they improve in effectiveness as they work with members of the public.
There are many hypnotherapists now using CORP and it has amassed in excess of 20,000 hypnotherapy sessions already. This gives students the wonderful ability to compare the progress of their clients against the average performance of other therapists using CORP.
