Launch of New GHSC / GHR Website

 

Dear Colleague

 

After months of hard work we are delighted to announce the launch of the new GHSC & GHR website at www.general-hypnotherapy-register.com (N.B. The new site is best viewed via Google Chrome but should also be compatible with all current versions of main browsers.)

 

This new website now combines the previous GHR and GHSC sites, clarifying for all users the relationship between these two bodies.

 

You will immediately note that the new site clearly caters for its four main visitor groups:

 

GHR Registrants
GHSC Affiliated Training Providers
Those seeking the services of a Registered Hypnotherapist
Those seeking to train in Hypnotherapy

 

In a technological age where a prominent online presence is both crucial and expected, we are confident that this new website will benefit all.

 

This is only the first phase however, as over the next year we will be looking at ways to further develop the site and to ensure that a prominent position via all major search engines is fully maintained.

 

Main Features:

 

• Maintains the GHR and GHSC established identities but in a contemporary way

• All information and resources under one roof

• Easy to navigate

• Fully search engine optimised to enjoy high ranking on all major search engines

• Comprehensive search facility for both hypnotherapists and training courses

• Individual profile pages for every GHR Registrant and GHSC affiliated Training School

• Update your contact details form

• Members Area

 

N.B. See top right corner of Homepage (i.e. Members Login) at www.general-hypnotherapy-register.com to access a range of useful tools and information, where in particular we would draw your attention to the:
NEW GHR & GHSC logos
Revised Specialisms Application Form
Practitioner Audit Tools
which are all available to download.

 

Additional Information

New logos for Senior and Advanced Practitioners, Acknowledged Supervisors and Accredited Training providers have also been created. They have not been included within the Members Area but are being sent out as appropriate.

 

Whilst we would encourage all parties to utilise the new logos, we would confirm that the previous versions will still be considered valid for a reasonable period in order that those who may have stocks of printed material bearing these should not be obliged to immediately replace them.

 

IMPORTANT

The new website URL will remain as www.general-hypnotherapy-register.com
However, those of you who have bookmarked certain web pages on the old GHR and GHSC websites may need to update these to the new website.

Charity Announcement:
Save Our Soldier Charity – registered number: 1149579

 

GHR practitioner, Lee Hayward, founder of the charity Save Our Soldier, has requested that we circularise notification of this important work to all Registrants. Any practitioner who may be interested in assisting with the programme should contact Lee on 07954 343450 or email sos@saveoursoldier.co.uk website www.saveoursoldier.co.uk

 

What does Save Our Soldier do?

 

We address the broken lives of combatants/emergency services personnel damaged through work/war, and also those of their partners or family who have been negatively affected. We aim to repair the psychological injuries caused by shellshock, war trauma or post traumatic stress injury, and help minimize unresourceful states. Once this is achieved, fuller lives and positive prospects become possible again, and successful integration into everyday civilian life is greatly improved. This helps redirect, or prevent further damage in, those suffering, perhaps already going down the slippery slope of self- medication. We address, for example, problems with family life, work issues, homelessness, depression and regret to the point where there seems no hope or future (for the severest cases).

We aspire to “Save Our Soldier” by providing help and interventions that prevent irreparable wounding from the “silent bullet”, which destroys lives long after the battle is over.

Our coaching is free to: veterans, those engaged in active duty from any branch of service (land, sea or air), of any conflict past or present, their dependants, and emergency personnel.

Update on Skype Debate
(See E-Bulletin, October 2012 – ‘Remote Therapy – Ethical and Safety Considerations’)

 

We had a most excellent response to this important issue and extracts from respondents, both for and against the use of Skype within hypnotherapy, will be included within the next E-Bulletin. It is perfectly clear that this question divides practitioners to a significant degree and that some form of guidance in the matter would therefore be helpful. It is consequently the GHR’s intention to consider all responses in detail and to subsequently put forward guidance notes that will hopefully prove to be beneficially but without being unnecessarily proscriptive.

The Practice of Cognitive-Behavioural Hypnotherapy: A Manual for Evidence-Based Clinical Hypnosis by Donald Robertson
This is a comprehensive evidence-based clinical manual for practitioners of cognitive-behavioural hypnotherapy, increasingly becoming the dominant approach to clinical hypnosis. At a theoretical level, it adopts a research-based cognitive-behavioural model of hypnosis. At a practical level, it closely integrates traditional hypnotherapy and cognitive-behavioural therapy techniques. This is the first major treatment manual to describe a fully integrated cognitive-behavioural approach to hypnotherapy, based on current evidence and best practice in the fields of hypnotism and CBT. It is the product of years of work by the author, a cognitive-behavioural therapist and specialist in clinical hypnosis, with over fifteen years’ experience in the therapy field. This book should be essential reading for anyone interested in modern evidence-based approaches to clinical hypnosis. It’s also an important resource for cognitive-behavioural therapists interested in the psychology of suggestion and the use of mental imagery techniques.
