Every so often, I share books that you might find helpful, whether it’s to read alongside your EICH Hypnotherapy studies, or if it’s for personal development. I’ll start with a few of my old favourites that I read many years ago and that I go back to from time to time. Click on the book image or title to find out more.
Candace Pert - Molecules of Emotion - was recommended to me by an old friend/hairdresser of mine and my Mum’s, Lucinda Ellery. It’s a beautifully written book about how we feel the way we feel, and offers insight into the workings of the human body and mind.
A book I found absolutely wonderful is It’s the Thought That Counts, by Dr David Hamilton. This was so easy to read, which is important for me as I can get easily get lost if I lose interest! Dr Hamilton writes about evidence of the power of mind over matter.
The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield was a book I read in my twenties and it changed the way I think. The Book Depository says ‘You have never read a book like this before...The Celestine Prophecy contains secrets that are currently changing our world. Drawing on the ancient wisdom found in a Peruvian manuscript, it tells you how to make connections between the events happening in your own life right now...and lets you see what is going to happen to you in the years to come.’
I am a huge fan of Khaled Hosseini. I read A Thousand Splendid Suns while on a Mediterranean cruise in 2011. ‘Love can move a person to act in unexpected ways, and lead them to overcome the most daunting obstacles with a startling heroism.’
In June 2016, I signed on the dotted line with EICH Ltd in the UK, to teach Terence Watts' Professional Practitioner Diploma course. By September, I had 7 students signed up, and I was a complete mix of nerves and excitement as I walked into the venue for the very first day of teaching. I sat in the room waiting for them to arrive, and I still remember the order in which they arrived and what they all said. Fast forward just over a year, and we’ve now finished all 10 modules, all 20 days of teaching, all homework assignments, and all exams. Now, we sit and wait for the exams to be marked!
I would like to thank each and every student of mine for choosing to study with me, over the other hypnotherapy courses available in Ireland. I learnt a lot from you all - your stories, your wisdom, the memories and the friendships you made with each other were all just lovely.
I am now doing the very same thing as I was doing last year - busy promoting my next course, due to start in September, and wondering who will be joining me this time to become a Clinical Hypnotherapist.
The week after the last module of the Professional Practitioner Course, I returned to the venue to teach the very first and only BWRT® Training available in Ireland. It was a great success and students were fascinated to add this skill to their work. To find out more, head over to our website here where you can find out about training and also about one-to-one appointments. You can get help for anxiety, stress, confidence, PTSD and so much more.
