Certificated Training Course December 2019 Feedback

Our last training course was widely received by those who attended.

“Tutors were good.  I enjoyed the practical aspects.  Great facilities ie parking, lunch, the venue was easy to get to”

“Good teaching and support. Thank you all !”

“The clinical application was very helpful.  Lovely, intellectual tutors, very passionate. Excellent presentations.  Two very good weekends”

“Thank you for a great induction.  Looking forward to practising my new skills learned from this weekend”

“Each tutor has a wealth of information to bring to the table – formal teaching during the modules but also informed teaching anecdotal stories have been very useful in showing how I can use this new knowledge”

“Great opportunities to talk to tutors during breaks and discuss issues and ideas. Handy venue and great food!”

“I am so pleased to have been on this course and am happy with the skills and knowledge I have gained. Looking forward to putting more into practice”

Conference October 2019

We held our autumn meeting at the Stirling Highland Hotel and we were not disappointed. The weekend was dedicated to Ericksonian techniques.  We were delighted to have two fantastic presenters to deliver what was a masterclass in Ericksonian hypnosis.

On Saturday we had Fabio Carnevale a Psychologist and Psychotherapist with 20 years of private practice in the field of clinical hypnosis.  Fabio was a hard act to follow but who could do it better than the master of Ericksonian hypnosis himself, Jeffrey K. Zeig PhD who did a full-day workshop on the Sunday for us.
