Utilise the Mind Body Connection to Enhance Your Work with Clients

Utilising the Mind Body Connection The National College of Hypnosis & Psychotherapy

Alison Leverett-Morris

UKCP Hypno-Psychotherapist and Course Leader of Working with Eating Disorders

Day 1

Through this training, Alison will present a fresh perspective on the mind-body connection to provide a grounded foundation upon which to build and structure your work as a hypno-psychotherapist.

Drawing on common factor theory, Alison will explore how giving consideration to clients’ physical health and symptoms – irrespective of their presenting issue – is both relevant and beneficial in ethical and contemporary hypno-psychotherapy practice.

The training will present a model for explaining the presence of unwanted physical symptoms to clients – which is particularly beneficial when working with clients who are “sceptical” or less aware of the relationship between mind and body.

The training will also include an exploration of working hypnotically with MUPS (medically unexplained physical symptoms).

Day 2

The second day of the training will be largely practical, and include hypnotic interventions useful for a broad range of presentations including IBS, infertility, sexual dysfunction, skin conditions, severe headache and migraine and more.

Alison will draw on her years of experience working as a Hypno-Psychotherapist.  She will share clear and helpful examples to bring training materials to life and, through practical exercises, ensure that those attending are given something concrete, informative and relevant to their own therapy practice.
