Group therapy

Group therapy and mindfulness in Edinburgh

Group therapy on Saturdays in Edinburgh at the South Side Centre will provide support for persons with mental health issues including anxiety, depression, stress and anger.

A combination of CBT, CBASP, Coaching and mental health support methods like WRAP and Mental Health First Aid processes will identify problems and responses, while mindfulness, meditation, visualisation and hypnotherapy processes will be taught to reduce stress and enable relaxation.

The group will be led by Denise, with support and cover from Stuart

Professional Standards Authority Accredited Registers

Professional Standards Authority Accredited Registers

 

The PSA has launched a report on the new Accredited Registers that list professional healthcare personnel not subject to Statutory regulation. Accredited Registers are professional registers that meet the stringent PSA standards for professional practice. They include registers for complementary therapists and holistic therapists such as the CNHC, NHS (hypnotherapy society) and FHT, and registers for counsellors and psychotherapists including the BACP, COSCA and UKCP.

Real standards, real contribution to health

The report discusses the real standards required to be registered on an AR, standards that protect the public and ensure quality has been checked.

The report also concludes that the AR registers must play a vital role in the provision of integrated healthcare in the UK

Accredited registers in our psychoanalytic practice

 

Both of our practitioners, Denise and Stuart are registered on both the CNHC and FHT Accredited Registers under the hypnotherapy category. The CNHC representatives on the 13th March 2015 at the meeting in Edinburgh confirmed they recognised that counselling and analysis were vital job functions for hypnotherapists and delegates commented that hypnotherapists virtually always provided these additional therapies.

Stuart and Denise are registered with the Society of Stress Managers, a professional body representing Analysis, Stress counselling and Hypnotherapy, and the National Association of Counsellors Hypnotherapists and Psychotherapists, both of which are CNHC accreditation routes. Although they use the titles of Analyst and Hypnotherapist, naturally psychotherapy and counselling are within their job functions, and as such they are registered and insured for these as well. Notably both therapists have received specific training in counselling, psychotherapy (including CBT), life coaching and psychology.

Stage hypnosis fake nonsense from ITV

Fraudulent nonsense for cash

ITV are digging up the previously though dead nonsense of stage hypnosis 🙁

Scofield and a stage hypnotist are running the “back in the room” game show from this week.

Paid to pretend!

Contestants are not being hypnotised, they are being PAID to act like idiots, and are therefore deliberately volunteering and colluding with the “hypnotist”.

Incorrect terminology and descriptions

Hypnosis is wrongly described as a “dark sleep”, which it simply is not, and this idiotic series will wrongly tell people all sorts of things about hypnosis, made up in the name of entertainment.

Bad for the public, bad for the profession

HypnoTHERAPY and the use of clinical hypnosis is a professional therapy and form of psychotherapy subject to voluntary regulation, national occupational standards and monitoring via the Professional Standards Authority Accredited Registers. It is recommended by organisations including NICE and Anxiety UK as a useful therapeutic tool. CNHC (regulator) registered hypnotherapists are not permitted to engage in stage hypnosis, since it is UNETHICAL.

Professional Therapists

The CNHC, the voluntary regulator which covers hypnotherapy, and the other PSA accredited registers have banned therapists from having anything to do with stage hypnosis, because it is unethical and brings the whole area into disrepute. Shame on ITV for reintroducing this sham!

The public should look for CNHC registered hypnotherapists, or hypnotherapists subject to any of the other PSA accredited registers (such as CNHC or FHT). Professionally qualified and AR registered therapists have nothing to do with this nonsense.
