Our school has delivered accredited hypnosis and hypnotherapy training in the UK since 1999


"I enjoyed this stimulating learning environment so much that after I qualified from the Advanced course in 2005 (I'd qualified elsewhere in 2000) I stayed on as a classroom assistant for five years and have been a supervisor to other hypnotherapists from the EICH for the last seven. As a result of my superior learning at the EICH, I have become an expert in my field"

Brief Interventions

Monday, July 24, 7.30 pm - 8.45 pm

A 6-lesson live and online video course, all recorded for future viewing or reviewing.

What exactly are 'Brief Interventions'?


They are a whole collection of the 'in session session changers' created by Terence Watts during his career as a therapist since 1989. Determinedly traditional in style - not showy, dazzling, ultra modern or 'slick' - and elegant in presentation, these are 'devices' which you can introduce during a session as necessary. They are brief interventions your clients will love, easily understand, and be able to use for themselves if necessary at some point in the future. They will help you to effortlessly:


  • Bypass resistance
  • Dissolve hidden agenda
  • Release guilt blocks
  • Quell anxiety flares


Creative, inspirational, enjoyable and above all effective, they allow you make those near-instantaneous changes that we all need to be able to do sometimes during a session to get a client 'back on track' without breaking stride. They provide you with an effortless set of tools that are easy to learn and remember and are designed to completely hold and focus your client's attention.

Logical and Practical

One of the great things about what you will learn here is that every intervention has a logical and practical base using everyday situations and concepts (there's even one that uses Marmite to dispel anger!) to work their magic. None of them take more than a few minutes to deliver and all of them are based on concepts the client will easily recognise and  understand. Terence is well-known for developing innovative and creative processes and these brief interventions - most of which have never been taught before - are no exception. Reframes are boring in comparison!


Hypnotic inductions

Most of these interventions work with or without hypnosis but you will also learn two inductions in this course. One is quick, pretty much irresistable, and produces an intense focus; the other is faster and gets the client into a good working state of hypnosis in a few seconds with no touching, finger-snapping or other showman-like effects. It's designed for the client, rather than for the therapist!


The brief interventions covered will include:


  • Dissociation and distancing 
  • Getting over 'stuff' 
  • Insulation techniques 
  • Coping strategies 
  • Guilt release 
  • Discovery 
  • Symbolic removel of symptoms
  • Inner child, outer sage
  • Faster 'WSN'
  • Speedy parts

The vast majority of what you will learn has never been taught before - in fact, has never even been written up! Everything has been used to great success with clients though, over and over again. 


Please note: Large parts of this course will be experiential, so the numbers wll be stricly limited. You won't need to participate if you don't want to - you can just sit back and watch how I work wth a volunteer, or even several volunteers at once.

The six-lesson course commences on Monday July 24 at 7.30 pm - 8.45 pm and costs £120.00
