The course was held on Sunday 25th September at the Clifton Practice in Bristol and led by Dr Naeem Iqbal and was well attended, as always, by fellow hypnotherapist from throughout the UK.
It was a fascinating study of how the brain works at a level not covered on the Hypnotherapy course. I found it very rewarding finding out just how hypnotherapy changes the working of the brain to enable a person to change how they think and feel. I took plenty of notes and I'd like to share some of them with you below:
- Just by thinking/focusing on the solution will reduce stress hormones
- The Primitive brain takes over in emergencies
- Change must occur at the synaptic level for change to take place (this is what we do in SFH)
- How much a person WANTS to change plays a big factor to actual change
- We are generally only aware of 10% of what is going on, mindfulness increases this percentage
- When a person is in trance plasticity is most effective, research has proven this
This is just a snippet of what we went through and I'm keen to learn more.
