A practical Hypno-EMDR Skills Workshop for Hypnotherapists

Hypno-EMDR - EMDR for Hypnotherapists

What is EMDR Therapy?

Originally created to help address and resolve traumatic memories, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) Therapy facilitates the accessing, processing and resolving of disturbing memories and unpleasant life experiences. During the EMDR Therapy process, you are also able to help a client to address negative beliefs and unwanted body sensations about past and future events, as well as generating supportive positive beliefs and sensations. This makes the EMDR Therapy approach a highly effective addition to the skillset of any professional therapist.

What is Hypno-EMDR?

At HypnoTC, inspired by the versatility and overall effectiveness of the standard EMDR Therapy process, we have created the new and ground-breaking therapy approach, Hypno-EMDR. Specifically designed for hypnotherapists, the use of tried-and-tested hypnotherapy techniques in conjunction with EMDR-inspired elements is a power-combo that creates significant and long-lasting changes.

Developed and refined by our experienced hypnotherapy trainers, the Hypno-EMDR approach offers a valuable tool for working with clients to address a wide range of issues, and can be used as a standalone approach, or as an additional technique within your existing hypnotherapy sessions. Also, contrary to popular belief, the Hypno-EMDR approach isn’t just highly effective with trauma, in fact, it can be used to address a number of different issues that your clients may want help to resolve…

Hypno-EMDR Training

The 3-stage Hypno-EMDR training programme

Hypno-EMDR training consists of three components:

  • A live online practical skills workshop (this course)
  • An online practitioner-level training course (coming in 2022)
  • An in-person master-practitioner training course (coming in 2023)

We will soon be launching our Hypno-EMDR online practitioner and in-person master-practitioner courses. In the meantime, the Hypno-EMDR practical skills workshop is a fantastic place to get started, and you’ll learn exactly how to apply Hypno-EMDR in your own hypnotherapy practice!

We recommend that you take the online practitioner-level training before taking this course, so you’re then able to practice and apply all that you’ve learned when you join us live-online for the practical skills training. However, you’re welcome to join this course before taking the practitioner training if you wish – though this course is focused on the practical application of Hypno-EMDR, rather than the theory and associated processes that you’ll learn on the practitioner course.

In order to be eligible for the Hypno-EMDR master-practitioner training, you must first complete both the practitioner course and the practical skills workshop.

Live Online Practical Skills Workshop

Due to recent events, the landscape of hypnotherapy has changed and more therapists than ever before are working online. Our Hypno-EMDR practical skills workshop has been enhanced to reflect this and now includes training and techniques for both in person and online applications, and the best way to learn and practice online techniques is online.

This highly interactive live-online training, is taught via Zoom. It will take you through the entire Hypno-EMDR protocol, from start to finish, as well as explaining how to adapt each element to suit a range of client needs, whether working online or in-person. Full use of Zoom breakout rooms enables this course to be highly practical. In addition, after the workshop, you will be able to engage in activities and discussions in the exclusive Hypno-EMDR Facebook group. 

On the practical skills workshop we cover:

  • Self-use of bilateral stimulation
  • Self-care and stabilisation approaches
  • Assessing the client for Hypno-EMDR suitability
  • Information gathering for Hypno-EMDR work
  • Preparing the client for Hypno-EMDR
  • Metaphors for Hypno-EMDR
  • Utilising with SUD and VOC scales
  • Working safety
  • Developing the safe place and teaching the stop signal
  • Using bilateral stimulation (BLS) and eye movements (finger sweep, clicks and taps) in-person and online
  • Bilateral stimulation using technology
  • Processing images, beliefs, emotions and body sensations
  • Increasing and decreasing access to memories
  • Working through blocks and loops
  • The inner advisor protocol
  • Past trauma standard protocol
  • Specific containment processes
  • Closing interim and final sessions

As mentioned above, because this workshop is focused on the development of your practical skills, the underlying theory of Hypno-EMDR is discussed in greater depth on the online Hypno-EMDR practitioner course.

The majority of this Hypno-EMDR workshop is practical and you will be expected to participate, both giving and receiving Hypno-EMDR. You do not need to have experienced trauma to participate. During the course, you are requested to focus your own experience on minor issues. If you wish to work through a significant trauma, please address this in therapy outside of this workshop.
