As I write this, the sun is shining, spring has sprung, and lockdown is slowly easing, so things are feeling a lot more optimistic.
We are looking forward to getting back into the classroom at the Jury’s Hotel in Sheffield for our next hypnotherapy training course.
It has been a year of fun and learning with the live teaching weekends on Zoom. We did make it back into the classroom on a break of the lockdown when we were allowed, for a socially distanced weekend, with masks and covid checks, and it was great to see everybody in real life!
We were very careful to ensure that the students didn’t miss out on anything online, in comparison to the classroom hypnotherapy training. This included inviting the students into separate rooms so they could practice exercises with each other online. It’s always good to get in those 1-1’s, and people on the courses often form solid friendships.
We had our December module on Zoom where glasses were raised and Christmas hats were donned for some festive cheer.
In fact, whilst we were on Zoom, our students learned the additional skill of how to deliver solution-focused hypnotherapy sessions for their volunteer clients over Zoom during the pandemic. This means that they are not restricted by geography in their practice, and it could add an extra ‘string to their bow’.
We will look back at some point, at the pandemic year, and we will be amazed at how we adapted so quickly. It just shows what can be done when you have to.
We never envisaged that one day we would be delivering our training over Zoom. It went really well, we were pleased with how we managed it, and the group still had fun and enjoyed it. The students still worked as hard with their written work, and they still saw their volunteer clients and adapted to see them online.
So, we should all give ourselves a well-deserved pat on the back!
We will be back in class for June 2021, for graduation for SH2. One of our students happens to have a dessert-making business, so she is bringing us a cake to celebrate graduation. It’s a difficult choice between lemon drizzle, victoria sponge, or a huge variety of other amazing cake choices. Decisions, decisions…
The next solution-focused hypnotherapy training course starts in September 2021. If you would like a new career as a solution focused hypnotherapist check out the website and get in touch www.cphtsheffield.co.uk
