CPHT Solution Focused Hypnotherapy
Practical, complete training, full NCFE accreditation, nationwide presence, payment options… there are many reasons to choose CPHT as the best hypnotherapy training centre.
I am a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist with a busy practice. I work from premises in Stafford and also online. I see clients from all over the world and love being able to help people. In 2015, along with a colleague, we decided open a hypnotherapy training school in Leeds. This school became CPHT Leeds and opened its doors to the first students in 2016. Since then, the school has gone from strength to strength. Now in its sixth successful year, we are able to use all our previous hypnotherapy & training knowledge to support our students.
So, what was my career background prior to becoming a hypnotherapist? Well, for over 25 years, I worked in a publishing environment within a sales and marketing focus. Initially as a salesperson, then as sales manager and trainer. I loved my time as a trainer and manager. It allowed me to hone my coaching and motivational skills. Ultimately, I took on the role of operations manager. This allowed me to use my knowledge to grow and develop the company I worked for. This same knowledge would go on to help me grow my own hypnotherapy business. The marketing element of my experience has also been extremely valuable with CPHT Leeds. Sharing it helps students on the course understand how best to promote their businesses once they graduate.
In 2003, I trained as an NLP Practitioner with one of the founders of NLP, Richard Bandler. During the same year, I went on to qualify as a Licensed Training Specialist of NLP. I soon included these new skills in my training and coaching sessions. I quickly realised that NLP alone was not enough to create the many changes people desired. This sparked an interest in hypnotherapy and the changes it can help people with.
I decided to find a hypnotherapy school that suited my logical and positive nature. I was thrilled to be accepted to train with Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training (CPHT). CPHT offers delegates the opportunity to qualify for the Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (DSFH) as well as the Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma (HPD). This is classed by many to be the “gold standard” in Hypnotherapy training. I found that the course was ideal for me as I was planning to change career. It certainly gave me the skills and confidence to start practising as a hypnotherapist straight away.
Once I’d built up a busy hypnotherapy practise, I decided to train as a Hypnotherapy Supervisor SFH Sup (Hyp). This way I could use my skills and knowledge to help other hypnotherapists. I loved the fact that CPHT allowed me to progress my career in this way. Not long afterwards, I helped to launch CPHT Leeds. It was important to me that I was as well qualified as it was possible to be to run the school. So, in 2018, I completed the Advanced Hypnotherapy Diploma (AHD). This course has been assessed at a level 5 by NCFE. Right now, this is the highest level of qualification available for solution-focused hypnotherapists. As you can see, I am committed to continually improving my skills & knowledge. I have attended many such development courses to date.
I now live in Staffordshire and enjoy spending time with my cat, Oscar, my four children and their families. I am an avid reader and love passing on what I’ve learnt to others. I have a busy, full-time hypnotherapy & psychotherapy practice. I maintain around 25 ‘live’ clients on my books at any time. I see people online from as far away as Vietnam and more locally at my clinic in Stafford, Staffordshire.
I love being part of the CPHT Hypnotherapy Training Team. In 2019 I helped to launch the CPHT Liverpool school. This school is now in its fourth successful year. I continue to enjoy helping the Leeds students to develop into confident, successful hypnotherapists. I will always be grateful to CPHT. It has given me the life that I have always dreamed about. A life that allows me to help others while giving me time to spend with my family. I am excited about being able to offer others this same opportunity. I am passionate about enabling people to achieve their goals.
