It's 10 years to the day since I started the HPD course at CPHT Bristol. I looked a lot younger then, as the photo below shows.
I couldn't wait for the course to start and thoroughly enjoyed every course weekend. We were encouraged to see volunteer clients for relaxation practice from the first weekend and I (and they) were hooked.
It's been so rewarding seeing clients progress, overcoming debilitating anxiety, regaining a sense of purpose and a zest for life, or conquering a life-long fear or phobia.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is such an uplifting form of therapy, we help people move from where they are currently to where they want to be. We focus entirely on identifying positive steps towards their preferred future, which means sessions are upbeat and energizing, for both the client and the therapist. I often joke that it's the only job I have had where I feel more lively at the end of a working day than at the beginning.
The course was a life changer. I wonder what the next 10 years has in store...
