Forthcoming Radio Show – Call for Potential Interviewees

 

We recently received an email form GHR Registrant, Christopher Williams, extracts of which are copied below, and feel that it presents an excellent opportunity to promote both the work of individual practitioners and the wider profession in a most positive light:

 

“I am a Member of the GHR with a practice in Rainham, Kent. Our website is: www.hypno-hut.co.uk

Following an audition and interview, I have been offered a one hour weekly show on UK Health Radio (http://ukhealthradio.com/). It is an online digital radio station with ¼ million listeners Worldwide, of which 80% are UK based and the majority of the remainder are USA based. It is broadcast 6 days a week over 4 time zones. 

It is a voluntary project and my aim is to promote hypnotherapy. You would be more aware than I of the need to increase its profile and expand on the public’s understanding of the way in which it changes lives. 

I am intending it to be an eclectic mix including the latest developments in hypnotherapy, interviews with well known therapists etc. I will be inviting listeners to email me with questions, the more interesting of which I will discuss on the next show. There will be some relaxing music to give listeners “me time”, together with special features on treatments that have been successful. I would also like interviews with celebrities from different areas of show biz, TV, sports etc who have benefitted from hypnotherapy. As you can see, I have very ambitious ideas on how to help move the wonderful world of hypnotherapy forward.  

I would like to talk to someone about how you feel I can best achieve my aims, and someone who can introduce hypnotherapy, its merits, the importance of choosing the right therapist and any other area of interest that you feel would help. My target is to get the first programme aired in 4 weeks.

I hope, firstly, that you will support my aims and efforts and secondly to add strength and support to the first broadcast.” 

Consequent to this, we have advised Chris that we will endeavour to source suitable candidates for interview and therefore now invite any practitioner or trainer who may be interested in participating in this exciting venture to forward their area of interest/expertise and an accompanying CV to us for consideration, either by post or email attachment to the HQ or email addresses printed above.

Bob Neill – Pioneer Hypnotherapist

 

GHR practitioner, Barbara Neill, has requested that we post the following appeal for contributions, and we are most pleased to do so:

“I’m currently working on a project to commemorate the contribution that my father, Bob Neill, made to hypnotherapy as one of the first hypnotherapists to be established in the UK, and I was wondering if any of my fellow hypnotherapists might have known him, met him or even just heard of him back in the early days. If so, I’d love to hear from you.”

You may contact Barbara at info@bneill-hypnotherapy.com or on 07926 994820 where we know she will be most delighted to receive any contributions that those of our more senior practitioners may be able to offer her.

Free Autism Awareness Course

 

Around 700,000 people in the UK are thought to be autistic, or more than 1% of the population, so it’s quite likely that some of the clients who present to your practice are affected. Whether or not you are working with them for issues directly connected to their autism, the condition is inevitably part of their personality and how they respond to the world.

Debbie Waller is an experienced hypnotherapist, author and hypnotherapy trainer. Her daughter Rachel, also an experienced writer, is on the autistic spectrum. She found that therapy could be helpful, but that there were often things about actually accessing it that she struggled to cope with. The mother and daughter team felt that if therapists more fully understood autism, and the challenges faced by those on the autistic spectrum, they could make the experience of therapy more positive and effective.

Debbie and Rachel have therefore put together a guide for therapists of all kinds who wish to make their practice autism friendly, and more accessible to those on the spectrum.

The guide has been published as a CPD course called ‘Understanding Autism: making your practice autism friendly’ which is available free of charge from http://www.cpd.expert/free-cpd/autism

GHR members wanting more information can sign up via that URL or contact Debbie on debbie@cpd.expert
