Becoming a Hypnotherapist? (Online Course!)

Many of you might be aware that I was trained by the UK College of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy back in 2012 and have a diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy. There used to be some readers messaging me to ask about taking the same course. And now! It’s launched! The online diploma training is now available!

Click the following link for more information about this Online Hypnotherapy Course.

And you have two options to take this training:

    1. Tutor supported (15 hours)
    2. Self-led

Why do I recommend this and not any other course? Not because I took this or I knew the director/principal/trainer of the College (he doesn’t even know that I’m writing this!), but because this is the only place that provides the most scientific and evidence-based hypnotherapy training, no bullsh*t! The course content is all based on experimental and clinical research, and still, you can become a hypnotherapist after completing the course.

Let me know if you have any questions about it. Or, go to the College’s website to find out more.

ACT Malaysia

Most readers of my blog know my passion on ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), and I’ve always felt quite “lonely” here as when I first came across it, I was in the UK, and when I practice it here in Malaysia, I have no one to talk about it with. So I’ve written this post about 9 months ago, paging for ACT Therapist in Malaysia.

I guess luck is on my side, few months ago Dr Eugene Koh from UPM contacted me. A group of them, who are psychiatric consultants cum ACT practitioners, are forming an ACT group.

So here is the website: https://www.actmalaysia.com/

These are some other ACT therapists in Malaysia: https://www.actmalaysia.com/?page_id=299 (if you would like to join us, please write to actinmalaysia@gmail.com)

That’s me on the website: https://www.actmalaysia.com/?page_id=367

Utterly grateful with their hard work of putting things together and connecting us! Looking forward to this community growing stronger and better together, supporting each other.

锚定技术:如何在极端情绪中让自己平静下来度过它?

这是一个简短的“锚定”(dropping anchor)录音,适用于当您感到强烈的情绪并希望将自己引导到当下、此时此地的情况,并很好的面对/充分利用您所处的情况。(理想情况下,您必须已经和我在会谈中做过这个练习。)

5分钟锚定录音

基本上是以下几个步骤:

  • 注意并承认您的痛苦想法。你在想什么?头脑说些什么? (“我注意到我在想我不够好,我是失败的人”)
  • 注意并确认您的感受和情绪。您的身体感觉如何? (沉重的胸口?肩膀绷紧?头痛?麻木?手冰冷?等等)
  • 回到您的身体,坐直/站直,感受脚下的地板在支持着你;将指尖放在一起,舒展一下,呼吸几下。
  • 用您的感官与外部环境建立联系。您能看见什么?你能听到什么?您可以触摸/品尝/闻到什么?(比如:识别您能听到的五个声音?)
  • 行动:既然您已经处于这种情况下了,那么您可以做些什么来更好的利用此时此地呢?

请注意,没有必要完全遵循这些步骤。当我练习时,我并不会跟着步骤进行。有时您可以快速执行,甚至在30秒内重复几次。

重要的是要注意,疼痛并没有消失,但是不管头脑在说什么,您的感觉如何,您仍然可以注意到还有很多其他事情正在发生(痛苦是整个环境中的其中一部分,可以选择不把所有注意力放在痛苦上),并采取有效行动朝着更有意义和充实的生活迈进。
