Course #1 – Uncommon Hypnotherapy

If you’re ready to leave the hypnosis scripts behind and develop real skills in conversational hypnosis, this is the course for you.

In this course, you’ll become fluent in indirect conversational hypnosis and master ‘Ericksonian’ hypnotic language patterns.

This makes hypnotherapy much more natural and is a great way to bypass client resistance.

This is where hypnotherapy becomes an art form (compared to the ‘painting by numbers’ script approach).

Mastering conversational hypnotherapy means that you never have to rely on a script again and can, instead, work spontaneously with whatever is happening in the room.

Course #2 – The Rewind Technique

As a therapist you’ll always have a steady stream of clients who need help with traumas they have experienced.

The Rewind Technique is proving to be one of the most successful ways to treat trauma. (1)

One of the reasons it works so well is that it is non-intrusive: as therapists using the Rewind Technique, we don’t need to ask our traumatised clients about their terrifying memories (which often just makes things worse).

Instead, we can de-traumatise the brain with this specialised technique that works for PTSD, flashbacks, abusive memories, accidents, nightmares, phobias, panic attacks, OCD, and more.

I’d go as far to say that the Rewind Technique is the number 1 technique in my therapy toolkit.

Course #3 – Conversational Reframing

Reframing is central to therapy in order to help clients change their often negative bias. But it takes a certain skill to do it in such a way that the reframe really resonates with your client’s inner mind. This is what Conversational Reframing is about.

It shows you how to help your clients break free from the prison of negativity and see things in a different light but not just on a conscious level.

By using hypnotic techniques, the reframe is assimilated on an unconscious/emotional level. That’s where the real change takes place.

When you sign up to this course you’ll also get a free ebook called ‘New Ways of Seeing‘ which further supports your reframing skills.

Course #4 – How to Stop Anyone Smoking

If you’re a hypnotherapist like me, there will always be a steady stream of people wanting your help to quit smoking.

In my early days, I would mostly rely on a hypnosis script but How to Stop Anyone Smoking gave me an entirely new approach. It changed smoking cessation sessions into something I enjoyed, rather than being a battle with the client’s subconscious mind.

If you aren’t 100% confident yet in treating people who ask for your help in quitting smoking, then this course will give you a new found enthusiasm to help free your clients from the tyranny of smoking – and perhaps even save their lives.

Course #5 – How to Lift Low Self-Esteem in Your Clients

Low self-esteem is another common complaint from the people you’ll treat as a hypnotherapist or counsellor.

This online course gives you deep psychological insights into what’s really going on with low self-esteem – and how to start lifting it.

It will explain why self-esteem issues can’t be tackled purely by cognitive reasoning and how to work with the emotional brain in order to make a real difference.

When your clients can free themselves from negative conditioning – with your help – and you see that first smile, you know things are changing. And the client does too.

Course #6 – How to Lift Depression Fast

Knowing how to lift depression fast in your clients can protect you from the same trance they are in!

Seriously, if you’re not careful as a therapist you’ll get sucked into the client’s woes. Beginning therapists are vulnerable to this, no matter the extent of your training.

How to Life Depression Fast is a solution-focused, structured approach to quickly shift the client’s mindset. In effect, it de-hypnotises them out of the cycle of depression, free of the negative bias of the emotional brain with all its worries and ruminations.

Not only that, but the course will help you to help your clients gain the understanding and ‘mental skills’ needed to prevent depressive relapses.

Course #7 – Uncommon Psychotherapy

If you’re not yet a qualified hypnotherapist but are trained in psychotherapy and counselling, you might be interested in Uncommon Knowledge’s approach to psychotherapy.

Uncommon Psychotherapy removes the jargon and dogma of so many approaches to therapy (such as Freudian psychoanalysis or psychodynamic counselling) and gets to the heart of what it really takes to help create lasting changes in your clients.

This course is now delivered as part of Uncommon Practitioners TV and is an 8-part certified professional development course.
