Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy
Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy has been designed to give you the best of both worlds. It is a powerful method that allows you to work successfully with your patients in the conscious alert state as well as in the state of hypnosis. CBT is the therapy of choice for many governments. This is because there is comparatively more evidence based research in CBT than other therapies. CBH is evidenced making it a powerful tool that is more easily included in hospital programmes and protocols.
The first four weekends involve learning a new method of working. You will learn about CBT, REBT—Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy, and advanced hypnosis and hypnotherapy. Then you will integrate this into a powerful and new tool. This course also covers alert hypnosis.
This is practical, rigorous and fun...
The next four weeks is when you will develop your skills as a working Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapist. You will explore the application to many conditions and to many types of patients. You are required to stay within the limits of your experience to ensure safe practice. Expect change in the way you think about yourself and in your professional method of working
CBT is an action-oriented humanistic means to emotion growth that emphasises on individuals’ ability for creating, changing, and controlling their emotional states. It stresses the present held attitudes, painful emotions, and maladaptive behaviours as well as thoughts that inhibit a fuller experience of life. Hence, the components include teaching people how to deal with the past effectively by focusing on the present. It also helps the clients/patients to implement healthy and realistic alternative to the existing psychological conflicts or problematic thoughts.
CBT is an effective tool in solving problems. Practitioners work closely with their clients/patients, seeking to help uncover their individual sets of beliefs; for instance, their attitudes, expectations and personal beliefs that often lead to emotion distress if it’s not managed properly. CBT offers a variety of methods to help clients/patients in reframing their unhealthy thoughts and beliefs into more sensible and realistic ones. All in all, it helps clients/patients to develop a philosophy and ways to living that will increase effectiveness and happiness in all areas of life.
Most Hypnotherapy practitioners are eager to work effectively and with confidence that is grounded in a powerful psychology model. This CPPD in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy (Diploma) course not only provide this but also provides a therapeutic structure that is clinically safe; which allows the practitioner to help a client/patient to progress. Consequently, it will also aid practitioners in dealing with obstacles that we all commonly face in our practice.
The course is both theoretical and practical based: practitioners will develop a solid understanding of theories and the process of CBT. This involves demonstrations in lectures and experiential work. Part of the course involves therapeutic work outside the trance state. As the course develops, practitioners will learn how to integrate their hypnotherapeutic techniques effectively and implement them specifically in hypnosis within the cognitive and behavioural framework.
Masterclasses are one or two day training sessions on areas of specialty. There is a significant number of masterclasses and they are presented by the LCCH to members and students who have or are training with the LCCH. Individuals from other hypnotherapy organizations are also invited to attend. They provide an ideal opportunity for students to keep in touch with people who have trained with the LCCH. It is also an excellent forum for the exchange of ideas.
This an additional level of membership designed to denote prestige for practitioners who have successfully completed the Practitioners Diploma in Clinical Hypnosis (or equivalent). Diplomate status will be duly recorded on both the Certificate of Registration from the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis and the Practitioners Diploma. The faculty of the LCCH determine the criteria for awarding this status, which is currently a 5000 word dissertation.
British Society of Clinical Hypnosis
The Professional Body which governs the code of ethics is the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis (BSCH). BSCH (Asia) is the division of the BSCH specially created to include any additional and specific ethical considerations to those professionals qualifying and practising in Asia. Membership to this society (BSCH) is open to those professionals who have acquired the requisite Clinical Training and professional training in the major aspects of hypnotherapy.
Associate Membership of the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis - BSCH(Assoc) is open to all members who hold a Diploma in Clinical Hypnosis.
Full Membership is open to Associates who continue with their required training within a four year period of passing the Diploma exam. The designation for full membership is MBSCH.
There is a formal Code of Conduct which all BSCH Members are required to sign. This ensures that the standards of ethics and professional practice are of the highest standing within the field of hypnotherapy.
Registered Clinical Hypnotherapist
There is a referral system for members of the BSCH. This is to refer patients on to members registered with the BSCH. The British Society Register for the Clinical Hypnotherapists is open to any member of the BSCH who is a Fellow, Diplomate, Full, Associate and Affiliate member may register. Such members may refer to themselves as "Registered Clinical Hypnotherapist". There are no designated letters to accompany this title.
British Association of Medical Hypnosis (BAMH)
The British Association of Medical Hypnosis is primarily a medical organization. Full membership of the BAMH is open only to holders of a medical or dental degree (e.g. MB BS or BDS). However, the Society will accept non-medical members as Affiliates and Associates.
On successful completion of the Practitioner Diploma Exam candidates will be entitled to Affiliate membership of the BAMH and are expected to join the Society to enable their names to be placed on it's Medical Register. Affiliates must hold the PDCHyp. And also need to have completed at least one full year's membership of their own appropriate hypnotherapy society/association. In addition, they must be proposed by two members of the BAMH.
Affiliates will be requested to submit two case histories each year - taken from their own practice - outlining the presenting condition, the hypnotherapeutic method used for treatment, and the clinical outcome. The format for submission of case histories will be as directed by the Executive Committee of the BAMH. Associate membership will be available after a period of three years' affiliation.
The LCCH believes that a medical body with strict educational and postgraduate educational requirements, a code of ethics, and a complaints and disciplinary procedure is the way forward for the hypnotherapeutic profession in countries which currently lack formal legislation. The BAMH also accepts non-medical members and therefore does not restrict the criteria of associate membership to any discipline other than clinical hypnosis. A dialogue between the UK government and such an organization may well lead to overdue legislation to regulate the activities of hypnotherapy practitioners.
European Journal of Clinical Hypnosis
The EJCH is recognized throughout the world as among the leading publications in the field of clinical hypnotherapy. It is a publication which we feel no serious practitioner should be without. It provides a forum within which hypnotherapists can communicate with their peers and keep abreast of developments in the profession.
