Brief Psychological & Hypnotic Interventions

Helping our patients to deal with life calmly..

Many people think that work with emotional problems such as anxiety or depression is time consuming. I will demonstrate how working in a brief, solution-oriented way using hypnosis and imagery can be fast and effective. Whether we label techniques hypnotic or not we can access a patient’s unconscious resources through their imagination and use imagery to connect in a very powerful way to their ability to heal themselves. I will demonstrate, with the use of case examples, practical ways that a busy health professional can maximise the effectiveness of the time they have with a patient.

On day one I will focus mainly on stress, anxiety, panic disorder and phobias, and on day two focus will be on depression, anger and ways to build self-esteem. I will also show how using the expressive arts can be integrated into these hypnotic and non-hypnotic approaches.
