"I was so proud to qualify as a hypnotherapist in 2002 after a year of the most interesting and life changing learning experience I have ever had. I never thought I would enjoy studying for anything so much! It made a huge positive improvement to my life and I gained the skills and tools to help turn other peoples lives around too. I have never looked back"

Smashing Depression

Another 'Mini course' from the Essex Institute to help you work effectively with the depressed client!

Based on Terence Watts' best selling book  'Smashing Depression' (all 5 stars on!) this 6 lesson course gives you an effective tool for all cases of mild to moderate depression.


Starting right from the beginning this course shows you how to open your client's eyes - wide - to thought patterns tat they never eve realised supported and actually strengthened their levels of depression!


Next course commences:

Tuesday April 25, 2017, 10.30 am - 11.45 am


 For the therapist, depression can be one of the most taxing of presenting problems to work with - if only because it can be difficult getting the client to engage with the therapy in the first place.


This course dissolves that problem almost immediately (after a quick look at the possibility of the depression being the result of  undiagnosed medical condition) by getting the client started on the important task of recognising that there's not a self-help book, therapist, psychiatrist, guru, mystic, healer, magical fountain, grotto, river, sea, website or anything else in the world that can fix their problem on its own...  they have to participate. And you know exactly how to make that  far easier than they might ever have thought.


You'll get to work right away, introducing the client to a novel thought exercise using a Cheval Mirror (the sort of thing old-fashioned clothers shops used to have) and dynamic examples of:


  • Active versus reactive states
  • Catastophisation
  • A personality test based on depression responses
  • Acceptance
  • The Inevitabilty of Change
  • A stunning example of how stance affects mood
  • The 'magic smile'
  • High fiving yourself


You will also be able to 'crack' one of the most difficult aspects of depression, the hidden agenda.  Just the way you'll be able to work with that alone gives you an edge... and when you introduce the client to the 'deadly cousins' Arbut and Yerbut they will be hard pressed to avoid getting better in spite of themselves.


Using a structure simialr to the highly successful Generalised Anxiety Disorder course, ths one gives you a seven-session 'fix' that will help almost everybody who is well enough to sit in front of you and tell you they're suffereing from depression. They won't aways need the whole seven sessions and the tools this course will give you are invaluable. (It even includes a 'lite' version of BWRT.)


AT only £120.00 for the entre course and supporting notes, you'll get your investment back with your first client.


The next course commences on Tueday April 25, 2017, 10.30 am - 11.45 am
