I first became interested in hypnotherapy whilst studying for a degree in psychology. I was so impressed by how effective it was that I decided to train to be a hypnotherapist. So, after graduating from university, I enrolled with the London College of Clinical Hypnosis to complete, first of all, their Certificate in Hypnotherapy and then their Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy.
The LCCH are one of the largest hypnotherapy training colleges with centres across the U.K. and abroad. They are very well respected due to their high standard of training. More information about them can be found on their website lcch.co.uk.
I have continued with my professional development; constantly updating my skills by attending many specialist training courses. One of the most useful of these has been training in Non Violent Communication. The practice of Non Violent Communication enables the individual to communicate with greater authenticity, increases understanding, deepens connections and helps to resolve conflict. I particularly enjoy passing on these skills to children, parents and those who work with children.
I have been on more training courses than I can list here. All of them have been valuable in one way or another. However, I truly feel that the greatest teacher has been the shared experience of working with my clients. Every single one has taught me something about how best to facilitate the transformation that people are searching for when they choose hypnosis. And most importantly these experiences have taught me that all things are possible. Never underestimate the power of your own mind.
I feel very grateful to all my past clients who, through their trust in me, have allowed me to develop and grow as a facilitator for transformation. There is nothing more satisfying than helping people to transform their lives.
Here is a message from one past client:
“Catherine Deans has changed my life. I have transformed my life as a direct result of Catherine’s inspirational work. My greatest transformation was conquering my fear of the unknown. I now step proudly into every situation with great trust and confidence. This lady is unique in her abilities and her approach to hypnotherapy. It is my pleasure to have met her.
I am eternally grateful to you Catherine.”
Following on from coming to me for hypnosis, and feeling inspired by her experience, Andrea retrained and has become a hypnotherapist herself.
