Weight Loss - A Mindset Approach CPD

Complete CPD package to equip you with all you need to run Weight Loss Courses. Work online, face-to-face, with groups or individual clients.

  • When: Saturday, 26 March 2022 from 09:00 to 13:00 (GMT)
  • Where: Online event
  • Cost: £110 (early bird £93.50 ends 18th April)

About this event

Weightloss mindset Sarah Sollom, DPH, DSFH, Member of CNCH, presents Weight Loss – A Mindset Approach. By popular demand we are running this again!

Course introduction

Have you ever felt with Weight Loss clients that you are wading through treacle? I used to find that lowering a client’s stress level simply wasn’t enough. I often felt stuck with little or no progress as far as my client’s Weight Loss was concerned, even if the client felt happier and less stressed. I felt the need to offer something more specific. After all, they had come to me with expectations and I wanted to fulfil them. So I developed Weight Loss – A Mindset Approach.

Weight Loss - A Mindset Approach CPD

This CPD is to demonstrate my method and equip you with all you need for running short courses with individual clients as well as for working with groups, face-to-face or online.

It is very Solution Focused, and it is NOT about body weight, calories or food. Your clients will learn about the brain and gain insight into their eating habits. This knowledge is empowering and you will be offering strategies to make it so much easier for clients to change their eating behaviours and get rid of cravings. Clients will enjoy a new feeling of self-control and achievement.

What is included?

When you attend this CPD, you will receive all the materials that I have created for Weight Loss. You can then personalise the content to make it your own and get started as soon as you wish. The package includes:

  • How to get started, the advertising materials that I have devised, flyers etc. lots of information about how I advertise and fill places.
  • The emails and booking forms for clients.
  • Two versions of my PowerPoint presentation. One is spread over two sessions, the other over three with an explanation of the rationale behind this.
  • Self-awareness exercises and session notes for clients.
  • Language pattern and a link to copyright-free music that you can use with no restrictions.
  • Lots of further information about how I make this approach work for myself and my clients.
  • Ongoing support and advice.

The CPD takes approximately three and a half hours. During the session, I email the whole package to you. We look through it together. I am happy to give further advice and support on the day and afterwards. You will not feel rushed.

What the people say...

Alcohol and Hypnotherapy Online CPD Training for the Hypnotherapist

This introductory session will demystify alcohol addiction and will equip you to work with your clients confidently.

  • When: Sat, 14 May 2022, 10:30 - 12:30 BST
  • Where: Online
  • Cost: £50
Alcohol and Hypnotherapy

About this event

Alcohol dependence is commonplace and most (if not all) hypnotherapists will, during the course of their career, see clients who have a physical or an emotional addiction to alcohol and who are struggling to make changes. Many colleagues I speak say that they approach such clients with trepidation and feel out of their depth. This introductory session will demystify alcohol addiction and will equip you to work with your clients confidently. It will provide you with a good knowledge of the issues that your clients may be facing as a consequence of their drinking. It will guide you to understand when it is appropriate to work with alcohol addicted clients, and when it may not be.

The course includes:

  • The reasons why people drink to excess
  • The levels that constitute excessive drinking
  • The difference between drinking excessively and alcohol addiction
  • The potential physical health consequences of drinking too much
  • How you, as a hypnotherapist, can work effectively with a person who wishes to take control of their alcohol use
  • Handouts giving all the information shared in the course
  • Language patterns that work well with alcohol dependent clients

Rebecca Bartholomew has been working in the field of addiction for over 20 years and has thousands of client hours behind her. Addiction services in the UK work in a solution focused way understanding that, for change to happen, clients need to be able to visualise their preferred future. Rebecca combines her knowledge of alcohol dependence and Solution Focused Hypnotherapy to bring you this course rich in insight, knowledge, and experience-based practice.

Rebecca has qualifications in Counselling and Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and runs her own online hypnotherapy service from home.

  • When: Sat, 09 July 2022 10:00 – 13:00 BST

SFBT for Practitioners

About this event

EARLY BIRD TICKET for limited time. This CPD has been accredited by the CPD Standards Office and your certificate of attendance will have their stamp of approval as proof.

Are you struggling to move forward with clients who seem ‘challenging’? Maybe you would like to feel a little more confident in your ability to ask Solution Focused questions? Or perhaps you would like to better understand more about the actual practice of SFBT before you commit time and money to becoming a qualified Solution Focused Brief Therapist? (This isn’t necessary by the way – it depends on where you want to niche in the future).

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions then this event could be of interest to you!

My approach

Angie HayesI’m a CPHT trained Solution Focused Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist. I’m also a Solution Focused Brief Therapist. I obtained my diploma via BRIEF International learning from some of the best in the field including Elliott Connie, Chris Iveson, Evan George and Adam Froerer. This approach does take practice and a lot of discipline but when you do finally master it, this is such a rewarding experience for you and for your clients.

Solution Focused Brief Therapy for Practitioners

So, what does this event aim to do? I want to help you to increase your confidence in solution focused questioning. And to have a more in depth understanding of the actual ‘practice’ of SFBT in the clinical setting.

You will have the opportunity to assess whether this is something you want to commit to training for in the future. Even if you don’t, I can give you my insights and tips into how I combine this practice with my Clinical Hypnotherapy clients to help them to get results much quicker.

It’s also a great introduction to Solution Focused Brief Therapy and how versatile it can be in so many different therapy and coaching settings.

What is included?

This is designed as an interactive and fun session where you will have plenty of opportunities to further develop your questioning skills as we break down and make sense of the key elements of this approach. There will also be an opportunity to do a brief ‘live’ demonstration. So, if you have something on your mind that you would like to explore further using this approach and are happy to volunteer to try this approach out for yourself in a public setting, then I would be very happy to give it a go

Also included is a copy of my ‘Questions Bank’ which provides a range of suggested questions you can refer to, especially for those times when you get those dreaded ‘I Don’t Know’ responses or those situations where a client tells you things have got worse.

3 CPD hours awarded. Certificate of Attendance and all supporting information will be sent electronically to all delegates.

  • When: Saturday, 23 July 2022 from 09:15 to 13:15 (GMT)
  • Where: Chilworth Manor, University Parkway, Chilworth SO16 7PT
  • Cost: £90

About this event

Weightloss mindset Sharon Mustard easibirthing® and parenting training founder and director presents this exceptional training. Refreshments are included and a CPD certificate of attendance will be available.

Course introduction

Tokophobia is a pathological dread and avoidance of childbirth. It is a distressing condition which can often be overlooked by medical professionals. As well as specific phobias and anxiety, tokophobia may be associated with depression and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Fear of childbirth is common and more intense in pregnant women who have not had a previous experience of childbirth. Over 20% of pregnant women report fear and 6% describe a fear that is disabling. Altogether 13% of women who are not pregnant report fear of childbirth sufficient to postpone or avoid pregnancy.

This is a 3 hours CPD course for professionals to assist clients to overcome extreme anxiety so they can experience freedom from fear of conception, pregnancy or a traumatic birth experience.

Tokophobia and Birth Trauma

What is included?

This course will cover working with the following tokophobic clients:

  • Women who have had a previous traumatic birth experience (secondary tokophobia)
  • Women who have suffered a previous trauma such as sexual abuse or rape
  • Those who have had no previous first hand experience of childbirth (primary tokophobia)
  • Men and women who have witnessed a traumatic birth as a birth partner
  • Those who are avoiding pregnancy altogether or have subconscious blocks to fertility

The benefits for your clients

easibirthing® is a registered trademark (the only one in the field in the UK) and any practitioner using this trademark has been fully trained and qualified, a reassurance for potential clients. Your knowledge will help clients:

  • Be free from fear which could otherwise rule their life decisions about parenthood
  • Be free from perceived restrictions on choices about their future
  • Learn strategies to empower rather than feel helpless
  • Feel listened to and understood in a safe environment
  • Process and reframe previous trauma to manage risk of re-traumatisation

What the people say...

Development of self concept: Our first five years. CPD for Practitioners

About this event

If we become parents ourselves, it is like applying a high-powered microscope to our own parenting when we were children. We feel compelled to analyse it. What worked well for us, what didn’t.

We have all grown up with the influence of others especially within relationships with significant others. Positive or negative, they are a part of our history.

This course is built on my experience over 26 years as a therapist. Join me on a journey through psychosocial experience, and how the concepts of epigenetics and neuroplasticity can help our adult clients heal when they did not get what they needed.

Whether you are a student, new or established therapist, it will enhance your skills and replenish your toolbox.

What is included?

  • To trust or not to trust: What influences either
  • How children learn to like and believe in themselves
  • How we feel safe to face challenges and try new things
  • How loving relationships shape children's self esteem
  • Healing early relational trauma in therapy

Overnight accommodation

"I very much enjoyed the course and I think I gained some useful insights. It's always a good sign when you wish something wasn't coming to an end. I would definitely come to one of your courses in the future.” ~ Andrew

"Dear Sharon, I can only imagine the time and effort you put into setting up this quality training. Clearly a labour of love!” ~ Irene

"Your courses are always great. I always like doing self-reflection questions and doing the questions myself so I can see how client would feel doing them and I feel if you have done them yourself gives you more insight. I will always promote your workshops.” ~ Carlie

This workshop looks at the following and more:

  • How the brain uses NVC
  • Common signs and symbols
  • Types of NVC

Quit Smoking , Vaping & Control Your Drinking ~ CPD For The Hypnotherapist

By popular demand Sarah Sollom is delivering this double training event for the 2nd time this year - seriously not to be missed!

  • When: Saturday, 02 April 2022 from 9:00 to 11:30 (GMT)
  • Where: Online event
  • Cost: £75

About this event

After this CPD you will have all you need to be able to work confidently with clients. Including PowerPoints, client handouts and much more. An online Event (via Zoom) by Sarah Sollom, Quit Smoking and Vaping is for working with individual clients or, if appropriate, for two people from the same household (typically a couple who smoke together). It is a two-session client procedure.

Quit Smoking , Vaping & Control Your Drinking ~ CPD For The Hypnotherapist

What is included?

You will receive the following package and you can personalise all these items with your own branding to make it your own:

  • A full PowerPoint presentation ready to use
  • Various client hand-outs including Self Awareness and Preparation exercises
  • Sarah's own specific language pattern
  • Notes for your use about how to proceed with your clients

Training also includes:

  • Procedures for both client sessions fully explained
  • Demonstration of the PowerPoint presentation and how it makes the sessions much easier for you
  • Some advice about advertising.

Control Your Drinking

After Quit Smoking, Sarah will continue to go through Control Your Drinking. This is for use with clients who would like to cut down on alcohol or even stop drinking altogether. Sarah says "I have used it with young binge drinkers. It could be described as a useful tool for your toolkit but is NOT designed for a client with a serious alcohol problem. It is ideal for a client who is maybe attending sessions for other issues, as it adds variety".

Your package includes:

  • A full PowerPoint presentation
  • Brief notes for your own use

If you have attended Weight Loss – a Mindset Approach, you will find a few areas of overlap with Quit Smoking, e.g. a brain explanation and a couple of points of explanation but it is presented differently and other elements are different. There are many similarities in the behaviours that accompany smoking and drinking. However, there is a fair amount of content that is specific to drinking and saves you a lot of time which it would take for you to devise your own.

Enabling you to assist clients to overcome extreme anxiety so they can experience freedom from fear of conception, pregnancy or traumatic birth

  • When: Sunday, 27 February 2022 from 10:15 to 13:15 (GMT)

About this event

Weightloss mindset Sharon Mustard easibirthing® and parenting training founder and director presents this exceptional training. Refreshments are included and a CPD certificate of attendance will be available.

Course introduction

Tokophobia is a pathological dread and avoidance of childbirth. It is a distressing condition which can often be overlooked by medical professionals. As well as specific phobias and anxiety, tokophobia may be associated with depression and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Fear of childbirth is common and more intense in pregnant women who have not had a previous experience of childbirth. Over 20% of pregnant women report fear and 6% describe a fear that is disabling. Altogether 13% of women who are not pregnant report fear of childbirth sufficient to postpone or avoid pregnancy.

This is a 3 hours CPD course for professionals to assist clients to overcome extreme anxiety so they can experience freedom from fear of conception, pregnancy or a traumatic birth experience.

Tokophobia and Birth Trauma

What is included?

This course will cover working with the following tokophobic clients:

  • Women who have had a previous traumatic birth experience (secondary tokophobia)
  • Women who have suffered a previous trauma such as sexual abuse or rape
  • Those who have had no previous first hand experience of childbirth (primary tokophobia)
  • Men and women who have witnessed a traumatic birth as a birth partner
  • Those who are avoiding pregnancy altogether or have subconscious blocks to fertility

Introduction to Solution Focused Brief Therapy with Angie Hayes

Angie Hayes HypnotherapistAngie is a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist. She is also a Solution Focused Brief Therapist. Angie obtained her diploma via BRIEF International learning from some of the best in this field, including Elliott Connie, Chris Iveson and Evan George. This approach takes practice and discipline but when mastered, pays dividends.

The objective of this event is to help you to increase your confidence in solution focused questioning, where we want it to lead us and how we can then draw on the client’s response to form the next question. It’s also a great introduction to Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) and how versatile it can be in so many different therapy and coaching settings.

This is a highly interactive and fun session where you will have plenty of opportunities to practise your skills with one another as we cover the key elements of this approach. By the end, you will have a toolkit to draw upon in those instances where you may need to dig a little deeper to steer a client back on track. Additionally, you will have a bank of suggested questions you can refer to, especially for those times when you get the dreaded ‘I Don’t Know’ response or those situations where a client tells you things have got worse.

Hypnotherapy in Cancer Care - An Introductory Offer

  • When: Saturday, 11 December 2021, 9:00 - 11:00 GMT
  • Where: Online via Zoom
  • Cost: £60 payable in advance. Link will be sent on once payment is received.
Building resilience, transforming confidence and providing drug free, effective complementary side effect management for increased wellbeing

Hypnotherapy for cancer care According to recent statistics from Cancer Research UK, 1 in 3 of us will have a cancer in our lifetime in the UK. More people are being diagnosed, and as more treatments emerge, more people are being treated and will live longer, so more people are living with and beyond cancer. Viewed in this way, just think about the number of clients who you may encounter who have been touched, or will be touched by cancer.

Hypnotherapy can be an empowering option for the patient when delivered within the knowledgeable framework of complementary therapy. If you would like to learn more about oncology and how hypnotherapy can play a safe and effective part for those touched by cancer, this is a great place to start. This taster session can be taken on it's own or form the basis of a more in depth learning about breast cancer-the most common cancer for women world wide.

Drawing from the most up to date clinical experience, we will cover cancer diagnosis and treatment overviews and also guide you through the reality of the patient journey so that you have a sense of the scope of practice for hypnotherapy, as well as the many resources you may be curious to draw upon to develop your knowledge further.

This session will be led by Beverley Longhurst, who has over a decade in the oncology field as a clinical nurse specialist, and has written about breast cancer and it's treatments and the application of hypnotherapy and yoga in the oncology setting. She has used clinical hypnotherapy as a resource for countless oncology patients and carers as a way of building resilience, transforming confidence and learning an effective self soothing technique for relaxation and as an additional resource for side effect management.

Quit Smoking, Vaping and Control Your Drinking for Hypnotherapists with Sarah Sollom

  • When: Friday, 7th January 2022, 10:00 - 12:30 GMT
  • Where: Online via Zoom
  • Cost: £75. Link will be sent after payment is received.

Quit smoking and vaping

Sarah Sollom Do you dread quit smoking sessions, because you have to remember so much information? This session equips you to work confidently with clients. Quit Smoking and Vaping is for working with individual clients or, if appropriate, for two people from the same household (typically a couple who smoke together). It is a two-session client procedure. You will receive the following package and you can personalise all these items with your own branding to make it your own:

  • A full PowerPoint presentation ready to use
  • Various client hand-outs including Self Awareness and Preparation exercises
  • My own specific language pattern
  • Notes for your use about how to proceed with your clients

Also included:

  • Procedures for both client sessions fully explained
  • Demonstration of the PowerPoint presentation and how it makes the sessions much easier for you
  • Some advice about advertising

Control your drinking

This is for use with clients who would like to cut down on alcohol or even stop drinking altogether. I have used it with young binge drinkers. It could be described as a useful tool for your toolkit but is NOT designed for a client with a serious alcohol problem. It is ideal for a client who is maybe attending sessions for other issues, as it adds variety. Your package includes:

  • A full PowerPoint presentation
  • Brief notes for your own use

There is considerable overlap with Quit Smoking as there are many similarities in the behaviours that accompany smoking and drinking. However, there is a fair amount of content that is specific to drinking and saves you a lot of time which it would take for you to devise your own. After Quit Smoking, I will continue to go through Control Your Drinking.

If you have attended Weight Loss – a Mindset Approach, you will find a few areas of overlap with Quit Smoking, e.g. a brain explanation and a couple of points of explanation but it is presented differently and other elements are different.

A Solution Focused Approach to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder with Andy Workman

  • When: Friday, 14th January 2022, from 17:00
  • Where: Best Western Chilworth Manor Hotel, Southampton
  • Cost: £75 payable in advance. Includes a certificate of attendance and PDF copy of the slides

Andy Workman Many of us experience trauma in our lives. For example, road collisions, personal injury, physical, mental or sexual abuse, natural or man-made disasters, warfare or civil unrest, terrorist incidents - the list could go on but definitely includes VIRAL PANDEMICS! Sometimes, just being a witness to such incidents can be traumatic. We are all exposed to graphic, detailed and disturbing coverage via the press and social media, to such an extent that we would be forgiven for thinking that we were actually present at the event.

Most can deal with these things but if the incident or our involvement in it is of enough magnitude, our can suffer lasting, reoccurring and life changing emotional and psychological trauma. Sometimes, as in current times, it can be ABSENCE from an event that causes trauma. Not being able to assist a relative or loved one when they are dying can be incredibly traumatic and the effects can be long lasting.

PTSD - Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is a very real condition that adversely affects the lives of sufferers, their family, friends and colleagues alike. It can result in life limiting/threatening conditions such as addiction, aggression, self harm and even suicide. Thankfully, the condition responds well to hypnotherapy, with many individuals able to return to a full life experience as a result of treatment.

What is included?

This workshop includes:

  • What is PTSD
  • The history of the condition
  • The diagnosis criteria for PTSD
  • Common approaches used in mainstream treatment
  • PTSD in Children and how to approach it
  • Why proper diagnosis and treatment is so important - for the THERAPIST
  • The solution focused approach to treating PTSD

Weight Loss - A Mindset Approach CPD

  • When: Saturday 22nd January, 9:00-13:00 GMT
  • Where: Online via Zoom
  • Cost: £110 payable in advance. Link will be sent on once payment is received.

About this event

Weightloss mindset Sarah Sollom, DPH, DSFH, Member of CNCH, presents Weight Loss – A Mindset Approach.

Have you ever felt with Weight Loss clients that you are wading through treacle? I used to find that lowering a client’s stress level simply wasn’t enough. I often felt stuck with little or no progress as far as my client’s Weight Loss was concerned, even if the client felt happier and less stressed. I felt the need to offer something more specific. After all, they had come to me with expectations and I wanted to fulfil them. So I developed Weight Loss – A Mindset Approach.

This CPD is to demonstrate my method and equip you with all you need for running short courses with individual clients as well as for working with groups, face-to-face or online. It is very Solution Focused, and it is NOT about body weight, calories or food. Your clients will learn about the brain and gain insight into their eating habits. This knowledge is empowering and you will be offering strategies to make it so much easier for clients to change their eating behaviours and get rid of cravings. Clients will enjoy a new feeling of self-control and achievement.

What is included?

When you attend this CPD, you will receive all the materials that I have created for Weight Loss. You can then personalise the content to make it your own and get started as soon as you wish. The package includes:

  • How to get started, the advertising materials that I have devised, flyers etc. lots of information about how I advertise and fill places
  • The emails and booking forms for clients
  • Two versions of my PowerPoint presentation. One is spread over two sessions, the other over three with an explanation of the rationale behind this
  • Self-awareness exercises and session notes for clients
  • Language pattern and a link to copyright-free music that you can use with no restrictions
  • Lots of further information about how I make this approach work for myself and my clients
  • Ongoing support and advice

The CPD takes approximately three and a half hours. During the session, I email the whole package to you. We look through it together. I am happy to give further advice and support on the day and afterwards. You will not feel rushed.

Comments from Facebook from therapists who have attended. I have dozens more!
