Group supervision with 2 free morning demonstrations
For our Saturday morning free session we will have two presenters on two different subjects (Subject to time).
First is Dawn Rowley who is well known to many and a very busy and experienced hypnotherapist and coach. A leader in her own right and generous with sharing tips and techniques. Dawn will present and demonstrate Havening and you will have the opportunity to practice under Dawn's watchful eyes.
Havening, is an alternative therapy developed by Ronald Ruden and his brother Steve Ruden; it relies on “amygdala depotentiation” that purportedly can help people with psychological problems, particularly those related to phobias, post-traumatic stress and anxiety.
Havening refers to a newer alternative therapy technique that incorporates distraction, touch, and eye movements. Its goal is to reduce anxiety and distress associated with negative memories.
Secondly we have me (John) with a refresher on Parts Therapy.
I will outline and then demonstrate negotiation between Parts.
What is Parts Therapy some might ask?
My explanation, not Charles Tebbitts (originator of Parts), is that Parts Therapy is based on a belief that our subconscious mind is made up of many different parts and each part has different separate areas of responsibility.
Those of you who have been in business as self-employed will recognise the need to wear many different hats, some days you will wear the administration hat…marketing hat… accountant hat… parent hat and so on. Internal conflict occurs when we have two different parts of the subconscious pulling in opposite directions.
An overweight person might have a desire to “lose weight” in order to wear nicer clothes or improve their health but another part of them craves the “feelings” they get when eating chocolate at certain times.
This can weigh heavily on the mind (Excuse the pun). Diets work on the body, not on the mind and is often the reason why people on diets end up “cheating”.
So, in this example, one part wants to stop overeating and another part wants to enjoy the “chocolate”. Unless the person achieves mind and body harmony then whatever weight they “lose” will be regained.
This is a good example of where Parts Therapy could be a solution to achieving that mind body harmony. During the hypnotic state it is easier to communicate with each part and reduce the risk of interference from the critical conscious mind.
One thing to bear in mind is this: Parts therapy can and often does crossover into Regression and you need to be properly trained and acquainted with hypnotic regression techniques. It can also involve the use or need for Gestalt therapy, which at times can be likened to parts as it involves communication with significant “others” and others could be referred to as parts.
I often tell people, if you only have Age Regression in your kit bag, you need to learn Parts and Gestalt Therapy techniques.
Competent Parts therapists can help people discover the cause of their problem, release them and then facilitate re-learning at the subconscious level with the previously conflicting parts integrated into a state of inner harmony.
This might involve negotiating a compromise, a mutually beneficial solution and could even involve experimenting for trial periods.
Two amazing subjects during our morning free session available only to those who reserve and pay for supervision. We might be limited to 15 delegates so book early.
Thinking about supervision?
When you think of attending a group supervision, what are your initial thoughts?
Are you going to attend because it is a requirement of your registration membership?
Let me give my take on one very important benefit. You can build a network of contacts with like minded people willing to share ideas and much more. People you can call for advice. People you can meet for coffee and a chat.
We work in an insular environment usually only meeting clients and helping them resolve their issues. Networking allows you to “meet” others in the same situation and let’s face it, it is good to talk. Group support events help provide this. Newly qualified hypnotherapists are required to attend four supervision sessions or peer support events annually during their first two years of practice.
Our supervision events are an excellent way to further build your confidence, skills and meet with fellow Hypnotherapists building a network of contacts.
My Supervision events align with the membership criteria of the General Hypnotherapy Register and the GHSc.
Attendance confirmation and receipts are issued by e-mail for the events.
These Supervision days are open to any qualified Hypnotherapists and as well as sharing information and ideas, you can receive advice and support on all things Hypnotic! If you have a video you believe might be of interest please contact me to discuss sharing this. Requests to present on a topic must be agreed and content approved with me prior to the event date.
You have to book and pay to confirm your reservation (clicking attending on facebook is not a reservation).
Still only £45.00.
