"I am still learning." ~ Michelangelo

The best continual learning process of any craft is to look at and learn from the work of others.

Dr Tom Barber and Dr Sandra Westland have been therapists for nearly 40 years between them, have trained and supervised professional therapists for 20 years (this year) and have been studying and researching academically in the fields of psychology, psychotherapy, hypnotherapy and NLP for 20 years.

"Amazing training delivered by two amazing trainers." ~ Julita, London.

Our Experience of Hypnotherapy & NLP

Over the years we have observed some universal experiences regarding being a skills based practitioner working with a variety of clients with a range of issues.

Some of these you may be able to relate to:

  1. Initially when training begins, some skills work and some don’t, so preferred techniques are developed and others are dropped.
  2. Often the techniques being used don’t create the desired results and it’s hard to know why this is.
  3. In learning the process of various techniques, you can sometimes miss out on fully understanding the theoretical underpinnings of the technique, and how they are applied and adapted to the individual client.
  4. With so many techniques taught, what to use, and when, can be a challenge and can lead to the work you do being less effective than it might be. For example … if you are using SWISH on the first session, your client is likely not yet ‘therapeutically acclimatised’ for this to be effective in most cases.
  5. Knowing which techniques are more effective for certain types of clients is vitally important. E.g. for the analytical client, the rewind technique will need to be adapted.
  6. How do you know what the right techniques are for the right client, in the right order?
  7. Wanting to make the techniques more effective by knowing the nuances that make the difference. The method of delivery, the speed, the tone, the timing and pacing, the language, the parts of the technique where you need to focus on the embedded commands, etc. Getting deeper knowledge with this makes a world of difference to your results, and better results lead to higher referrals.
