Sarah had aced being a mum for 20 years and had safely ushered her youngest son off to university. Whilst she appreciated every moment of that time, she acknowledged that it hadn’t necessarily helped her with her confidence at being ‘Sarah’ or getting back out to work.
I had become an expert at getting the stains out of rugby kits and could bake a reasonable cake but the thought of going out to work was very daunting!
As Sarah says – over the last couple of years we had, as a family, seen first-hand the true value of hypnotherapy and what powerful change it can bring about. My husband had been commuting for five hours a day and after nine years this started to take its toll and he began to suffer panic attacks on the train. Visits to the doctor and several sessions of counselling had little impact and then quite by chance I came across a leaflet that on one side exactly described his symptoms and on the other explained how hypnotherapy could help.
My husband started regular sessions of hypnotherapy with Gary Johannes, of Inspired to Change. Almost instantly he started to feel better and within a few weeks he was back at work. I was fascinated by the power of hypnotherapy and started to look into training courses.
As if it was meant to be, we received an email from Gary to say that he was starting a CPHT Hypnotherapy training course in Peterborough. The Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training (CPHT) is a nationwide training provider of the only nationally recognised hypnotherapy diploma in the UK – the Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD).
I already knew just how powerful this form of hypnotherapy was and so had no concerns about the subject of the course itself however I was nervous about my own ability to study after all these years. Gary was very reassuring, he explained that it was a very practical course where you are encouraged to start seeing clients from the very beginning and you are well supported throughout. The academic side clearly explained and you are given plenty of time to complete the work.
I thoroughly enjoyed doing this course; it stretched me and I learnt so much about myself, as well as how to really help and make a difference to my clients.
Don’t let age or lack of self-belief stop you from training to become a hypnotherapist by taking this course; it is good to stretch yourself and discover what you are truly capable of. Think of all the good you can do, for so many people.
