How to Find a Clinical Hypnotherapist In Nottinghamshire
It can be daunting when you are first looking for the best hypnotherapist in Nottingham especially when you have no friends or family who can give you recommendations which I why I thought I would write a short guide to help people in Nottinghamshire to find the right hypnotist for them. As a therapist in the area I get dozens of calls each week (as do other therapists) from potential clients looking for help with their problems. Yet is most cases the people making the phone call are ringing just because they found someone on the internet not because they have any knowledge of their expertise. In the majority of cases these people have no idea whether the person they are talking to is experienced, is capable of working with their problem or whether they have any formal qualifications. Believe it or not the hypnosis industry in the UK is totally unregulated which means that anyone can call themselves a hypnotherapist with little or no training. This is why I wanted people in the locality to understand what they need to look out for to make sure they are being seen by a fully qualified professional so that they get the very best treatment available.
Is your Nottingham Hypnotherapist a member of a Professional Body?
Any hypnotherapist who is serious about their profession is likely to be a member of a Professional Body. Here are two of the biggest in the UK.
The National Council for Hypnotherapy
There are of course many other professional bodies out there but check carefully before using one of their hypnotherapists. In some cases these so called “professional” organisations are not run independently but by people running cheap training schools. In other words they are accrediting people who have taken part in their training as being fit to work with the general public yet there may be no external validation or scrutiny to verify that their practitioners are in fact suitably qualified.
Did your Hypnotherapist Get their Qualification Online?
Successful Hypnotherapy involves getting great rapport with your clients. As a hypnotherapist in Nottingham I pride myself on having worked for thousands of hours with my clients. Even during my initial training I spent a signifcant portion of my student days working with clients on a one to one basis using perfecting my hypnosis skills. Yet some training schools teach their students online. That means at no stage in their training have these hypnotists ever worked with real clients face to face. Hypnotherapy students who learn this way do it for one reason only because it is cheap! So when they qualify they have a certificate but have never worked with a real cleint. This is akin to a surgeon having learned everything from text books and never carried out an operation. Would you want someone trained this way to be responsible for your well-being? Having the very best training can make a significant difference to whether you will have a successful treatment or not.
Does your Hypnotherapist Work Part Time?
The vast majority of hypnotherapists in the UK today work on a part time basis. That means that they are seeing only four or five clients a week if that (some may see significantly less). Now of course this is fine when an experienced hypnotherapist has decided to semi retire but not so great when the person you are seeing barely has any experience. As with anything in life the more you do it the better you get. As a full time hypnotherapist in Nottingham I see many clients each week which means that over the years I have built up thousands of hours of experience. It means that when a client comes to see me for weight loss hypnosis, anxiety help or confidence coaching I will have treated many similar issues before successfully. Choosing a hypnotist with considerable experience and who is a full time practitioner can mean the difference between success and failure in sessions.
Can your Hypnotherapist work with Your Particular Problem?
Many hypnotherapists specialise which means that they see large numbers of clients with a particular problem. I specialise in weight loss and eating disorders, anxiety related problems, confidence coaching and cancer hypnosis. Although these are my specialisms I see many clients for all sorts of problems and have considerable experience helping resolve a huge range of issues. An inexperienced hypnotherapy practitioner is unlikely to have much in-depth knowledge to fully deal with your particular problem. For example I spent two years working with a Cancer Charity using hypnosis with their members. A typical hypnotherapist is likely to see a cancer patient once every five years. Clearly choosing a specialist who sees many people with a similar problem is going to have a higher success rate.
