Yesterday (Saturday 30th November 2019) I attended the first AfSFH Conference. It was held at the Novotel in Victoria Street, Bristol.
The event was attended by over 100 Solution Focused Hypnotherapist from all over the country and it was great to meet up with colleagues I hadn't met before. Also great to meet friends I had endured training with or met previously at Supervision sessions.
I attended 5 presentations during the day, two of them from Dr David Hamilton. I had seen his books many times when searching for reading material that would help enhance my knowledge and skills but had never attended any of his talks. I was impressed. He engaged me right from the start and it was fascinating hearing what he had to say about the Placebo effect and, later on, how Kindness helps us become healthier and live longer.
Deborah Pearce helped give me a kick up the rear when I attended her Marketing talk and the always entertaining Rachel Gillibrand reminded us of the science that backs up what we do. I also found Andy Workman's talk on Body Language really interesting too, giving me encouragement to learn more.
All in all it was a fabulous day, extremely well organised (thank you to the exec team at AfSFH) and thank you to Novotel for you excellent hosting and catering. I'm already looking forward to the next one.
