What happens when you complete the course?

Many newly qualified therapists wonder what happens when you complete the course and can feel a lack of confidence when starting their new practice. They are concerned that they may not remember all the things they have learned. It’s particularly true if you are learning hypnotherapy and NLP at the same time. That is, if you are learning a recognised NLP course and not just a few techniques that have been included in a hypnotherapy course. There is a lot to remember and recall when undertaking a professionally accredited NLP course. It’s best to take one step at a time, [...]

How long does it take to train?

You may be wondering how long it takes to train to become a hypnotherapist and NLP practitioner. The answer is you never stop learning and training. To begin the foundation course, it takes ten months of constant studying , and of course to practice with as many volunteers as you can find. There are training providers that offer all kinds of training in a short space of time. You cannot possibly learn to be a psychotherapist, counsellor, hypnotherapist and NLP practitioner, and maybe other skills, all in ten months. You need to learn just hypnotherapy and NLP to begin with [...]

Choosing a new career

What makes people think about choosing a new career or changing direction? It might be a feeling of being unfulfilled in their present job, or just knowing that they could be doing something more useful with their lives. I know for me it was both of those things. Up until the age of 50, I was never happy in any of the jobs I was in. From being an area manager, to owning my own business, there was always something missing. As I did not know what was missing, I never looked to find out what it was. Just continued [...]

The Law of Reciprocity

The law of reciprocity means that when someone does something nice to you, you feel compelled to do something nice in return. For example, someone holds a door open for you, and you feel compelled to say thank you and smile. Yes, this is also good manners too, but for most of us feel that we want to say thank you as someone has done something nice. If someone gives us a gift out of the blue, we might feel compelled to think of something we can give them in return. Obviously there are takers in life who take everything [...]

The Law of Attraction

The law of attraction is the belief that people and their thoughts are made from energy. People can improve their lives in so many ways by attracting energy.  Have you ever considered how this could work? Or heard people saying things like, 'Put it out to the Universe if you want something’? It doesn’t work quite like that though. Just saying that you want something does not necessarily mean you will get it. If it were true, we would all be extremely healthy and be millionaires.  So there are requirements that need some energy from us before we can genuinely [...]

Pfizer is trying hide the truth about smoking cessation drug

Pfizer is trying to hide the truth about smoking cessation drug Champix. Many people, when they decide to stop smoking, turn to somebody they can trust… their doctor. So when your doctor prescribes a smoking cessation drug like Champix (or Chantix in the US), you probably hope that it will be the answer to finally kick the habit for good. What you don’t hope for (and probably don’t even think about!) is memory loss, depression, erratic behaviour and suicidal thoughts… to mention but a few of the most common side effects associated with Champix. The article lists the potential side [...]
