Are you thinking of learning psychotherapy this year? There are 8 great reasons to learn hypnotherapy first. We asked some of the psychotherapists on our course and here’s what they had to say.

#1 Getting Accredited as a Hypnotherapist is Quicker

Getting accredited and qualified as a professional Hypnotherapist and a Mind Coach only takes one academic year. Courses usuall start in September and run for one weekend per month. This means it’s much quicker than getting accredited in counselling or psychotherapy.

#2 You Can Start Earning Faster

A student Hypnotherapist and Mind Coach can start seeing and charging a small fee for case case studies within three months of training. Of course you’ll be limited to the cases you can work with and you must have student insurance in place.

#3 Avoid Income Insecurity

The mindset that is cultivated in Hypnotherapy and Mind Coaching is to recognise the value you have to offer and to get into the habit of charging (just a small fee at first) for your services. One of the biggest issues graduates from a counselling course face is the difficulty around charging clients after doing so much voluntary work. Learning Hypnotherapy and Mind Coaching first means you won’t have this problem.

#4 You Only Need a Few Clients Per Month

If you offer Hypnotherapy and Mind Coaching services for just two or three days per month, you’ll earn enough to help pay the tuition fees for your counselling course, the travel expenses for voluntary work and for your lengthy supervision sessions.

#5 Hypnotherapy – Empowering You To Feel Effective

Hypnotherapy is considered to be the original Positive Psychology. In hypnotherapy, we shift focus from what is wrong with you to what is right with you. Therefore it’s a very positive form of therapy and an empowering way to start your counselling career. Plus while you are learning counselling skills on your counselling course you are doing what you love – helping others.

#6 Increase or Reduce Your Clients Quickly and Easily

Mind Coaching and Hypnotherapy are brief solution focused therapies. Therefore you quickly reduce the number of clients you are seeing as the work load on your counselling course increases.

#7 Trance Free Hypnosis To Reach More Clients

Mind Coaching is very practical. Most trainee counsellors and psychotherapists love it because it doesn’t involve hypnosis or having to put people into trance. Plus it’s mostly eyes open, thinking and doing work that your clients will love! In fact you can sign-up for a Confidence Masterclass and watch how standing up therapy works by using the link below.

#8 101 Therapy Interventions In Your Pocket

Not only that, but if you decide to learn Hypnotherapy and Mind Coaching before you take a counselling course, you’ll also get access to 101 Therapy Interventions conveniently located on your phone. This means you’ll never be stuck for something practical and effective to do with your clients.

#9 Last but not least > Supervision Matters

Hypnotherapy Supervision is available (and optional) through our two IACP members and fully accredited supervisors Denis and Liam. But unlike counselling supervision, hypnotherapy supervision is still optional but highly recommended.
