Professional training for complementary therapists
I run professional training for therapists as well as a variety of courses for the wider public.
Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) Training
My EFT courses are based on the teachings of founder Gary Craig and are endorsed by the Healer Foundation which is affiliated to the British Complementary Medicine Association (BCMA).
Over the years I have undertaken extensive additional EFT training which added to my background as a Registered Mental Health Nurse, Clinical Hypnotherapist, NLP Practitioner and qualified Adult Education Teacher has enabled me to deliver my own individual approach to this amazing self-help and therapy tool.
EFT LEVEL 1 (one day)
This intensive one day course is designed for people who want to learn EFT so that they can use it for themselves. It is also a prerequisite for those who intend to go on to Level 2 and become EFT Practitioners.
The following areas (and more) are included at level one:
History and background to EFT
How it works
Location of EFT and acupuncture and acupressure points
EFT basic procedure and shortcuts
What EFT can be used on (eg anxiety, distressing memories, physcial issues, cravings)
Identifying aspects of different issues
‘Borrowing Benefits’ and group tapping
Working on your own issues
Personal Peace Procedure
What to do if it doesn’t appear to be working
There will be an opportunity to have your questions answered and guidance about progression to practitioner level.
EFT LEVEL 2 (two days)
Level Two is a two-day course designed for people who have already completed a level one workshop, either with myself or another trainer and wish to gain further knowledge and skills. At the end of the course you will receive an attendance certificate. If you want this to be upgraded to a practitioner certificate you will need to submit three satisfactory case studies, one working on your own issues and two, working with other people. You will then be able to obtain practitioner insurance.
The following areas are included in Level 2 training
Review of level one
Additional tapping points
EFT for Trauma
EFT for Addictions
EFT for Physical Issues
Tapping in Groups
EFT for Children and Animals
EFT over the phone
Setting up an EFT practice
Combining EFT with other therapies and a basic introduction to other EFT techniques including ‘Picture Tapping Technique’ and ‘Magic Bear Tapping’
EFT Group Practice/Mentoring Day (for level 2 practitioners)
This day is aimed at newly qualified level 2 practitioners who feel they need extra support to get their practice up and running or to integrate EFT into their existing practice. There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions and practice.
One to One Supervision/Mentoring for EFT Therapists
Cost £40 an hour
Drawing on many years of experience as a Registered Mental Health Nurse and an EFT Practitioner, I am happy to offer supervision to fellow therapists seeking guidance and support.
Reiki One Attunement:
(£50 to hospice volunteers and carers of loved ones with a life limiting illness)
At this full day workshop, you will learn about the history, principles & theory of Reiki, receive a level one attunement and be able to use Reiki on yourself, friends and family.
Reiki Two Attunement:
At Reiki Two you receive a second attunement, learn how to use symbols and with this level qualification you will be able to gain insurance & set up your own practice.
Cost £50 a session
(Can be a group of up to 12)
Although I moved on to Mental Health Nursing, I originally trained as a Nursery Nurse and for 3 years worked at the City of London Maternity Hospital in the Special Care Baby Unit.
In 2006 I qualified as a certified Infant Massage Instructor or “CMI” with the International Association for Infant Massage and in the past, I routinely delivered 5 weeks long courses which parents could access for free at Sure Start Children’s Centres. However, due to the recession, the funding for this is no longer available and sadly I now have to charge for my services.
At present, I can deliver classes in the Beverley/Driffield area on weekdays or weekends (great for working dads!). However, you will need to organise your own group of friends and venue. The charge for the course will be £50 a session for up to 12 participants with the oil & instruction sheets included - this can work out as little as just over £4 a session each.
Clinical Hypnotherapy Diploma Training
Cost: If paid in instalments- an initial deposit of £400 (to be paid by 1st October 2019) followed by eight monthly payments of £125 (£1,400 in total).
This price will be reduced to £1,200 If paid in full by 1st October 2019.
Special Offer! Early bird reduced price of £999.00 for the first 6 candidates who sign up and pay in full by 5th September 2019.
What does the course entail & what qualification will I receive on completion?
The course consists of one weekend a month starting on Saturday 26th October 2019 (no training in December) and has been assessed and validated at practitioner level by The General Hypnotherapy Standards Council ( U.K). Graduates from this course are eligible for professional
registration with THE GENERAL HYPNOTHERAPY REGISTER (the GHSC’s Registering Agency) and on successful completion of all the course requirements will be awarded a Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy Dip.C.Hyp together with the acquisition of the industry-based award: The General Qualification in Hypnotherapy Practice ( GQHP) with entitlement to use these letters after you name on stationery and advertisements.
Where will the training take place?
It is envisaged that the Training will take place in South Kirby, West Yorkshire at the Yorkshire Mind and Body Centre but if the majority of successful applicants are based in North or East Yorkshire it may be possible to either move the venue to a more central location or run a second course in the Beverley area.

"Feel the Fear & Do it Anyway" One Day Workshop
Saturday 21st September 2019 9.30 - 4pm
Cost £125 to include a 25th anniversay paperback copy of "Feel the Fear & Do it Anyway", a workbook and lunch
Special Early Bird Offer - £95 for the first 6 people to book before 31st August
Do you keep making excuses to put off doing something you really want to do due to fear of failure?
Does a voice in your head keep saying “What if?”
Are you a perfectionist and a bit of a control freak?
Do you worry excessively about what other people think?
As a licenced “FEEL THE FEAR & DO IT ANYWAY” trainer I facilitate workshops utilising tools taken from the bestselling self-help book by Dr Susan Jeffers.
Susan believes that in most cases fear is primarily an educational problem rather than a psychological one and that as we have learnt to be afraid we can also “unlearn” it and the best way to do that is to go ahead and do whatever we are afraid of!
Now initially that might too daunting but Susan has developed lots of different tools to help you to challenge and overcome those thoughts and almost 30 years after “Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway” was first published (and 2 million copies sold worldwide) later there are numerous testimonies from people that this has worked for.
Over the years I have trained in various other techniques that help with fears such as Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) & Clinical Hypnotherapy (both of which I now teach to others) and these can greatly help remove specific fears in one to one therapy sessions. However Susan Jeffer’s toolbox of techniques are mainly designed for use in workshops. Learning in groups has the added bonus of peer support and the cost per hour of the training is much less that it would be for a one to one therapy session.
