(Open to attendance after level 6)

A two-day interactive workshop presented by the Mastermind Hypnotherapy Training Centre cc, the official training arm of the South African Institute of Hypnotism cc.

Course objectives

Using the guidelines of a carefully formulated , step by step Smoking Cessation Session, this workshop emphasizes the concept of client centered hypnotherapy to deal with compulsive behaviour; that includes overeating or binge eating and other indulgences like gambling or shopping.
Smoking Cessation through the use of hypnotherapy has, by far, received the greatest attention from the public. The perception that this is the main objective for Hypnotherapy is changing however and awareness of the many other aspects for which this treatment can be useful is becoming increasingly accepted.
Offering smoking cessation sessions is certainly a guaranteed way to ensure a steady stream of clients, which might especially be of interest for those who are just starting out in this profession or those who wish to increase their client base.

Manual Content Overview

As an introduction to this course the definition of compulsive behaviour is examined and the differences between compulsive behaviour and obsessive compulsive behaviour defined, including a list of obsessions and compulsions.
The effects of stress and the spiral of behaviour open up the investigation to how do approaches with hypnotherapy and the relaxation response fit in.
Looking at the psychological effects and pathophysiology of nicotine and aversion techniques the foundation is open to begin a detailed outline of the Master Mind Smoking Cessation Resolution Technique.
This includes a 3 tiered session plan, preparation, appointment response, the program, journal and identification of triggers and secondary gain to name a few aspects. This program or technique has been found to be so successful that Genesis Medical Scheme allows for their client s to use their savings for smoking cessation session with SAIH trained compulsive behaviour and smoking cessation practitioners.
As the student is required to submit and pass a practical case study the manual includes 2 case study examples and detailed outline on how to successfully apply this technique.
