  • Have an understanding of what hypnosis is (including an appreciation of its dangers) & will know a little about its history (including an appreciation for how the traditional and utilisation models evolved, their similarities and differences).
  • Be aware of the phenomena of hypnosis & their value in therapy.
  • Be able to distinguish between the different styles of hypnotic suggestion (authoritarian/permissive; direct/indirect; process/content; negative/positive; post-hypnotic).
  • Be able to dentify the differences between traditional and conversational inductions, and conduct a basic hypnotic induction (using either/both approaches) including suggestions for deepening, elicitation of one of the classical hypnotic phenomena (eg, arm levitation), an age regression to access resources, and a post-hypnotic suggestion.
  • Be prepared to handle abreactions or unexpected client responses.
  • Understand the nature of memory and therefore appreciate the limitations and dangers of memories retrieved in hypnosis.
  • Be aware of the issues around 'informed consent'.
  • Be familiar with the utilisation approach to hypnosis and the value of metaphors in addressing specific client goals.
  • Be able to conduct an hypnotic session for the purpose of:
    - accessing resources (age regression) and contextualizing these in future situations (age progression), including
       a post-hypnotic suggestion
    - delivering therapeutic messages via direct and indirect suggestions (including metaphors)
