Terence's Courses and Seminars
Rapid Cognitive Therapy: Not to be confused with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, RCT is about creating fundamental change by giving the client a new understanding of self - RAPIDLY. In one-day or two-day format, this popular workshop has been presented many times, both the in the UK and USA.

Archetypal Parts Imagery: A modern and dynamically energetic style of PARTS work that grabs the client's imagination right from the start, by-passing resistance as if it never existed in the first place. A half-day presentation, seminar, or one-day or two-day workshop, this again has been presented many times in the UK and USA.

Basic Analytical Therapy: A "grass roots" seminar/workshop covering enough of the processes of analytical styles of therapy to allow even those with scant prior knowledge to work effectively, safely, and confidently in this area.

Advanced Analytical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy: Presented at my own school and many others, the subtitle for this one is: "Working by Stealth; the Invisible Therapist." It covers many advanced and effective techniques for analytical working, even with logical analytical clients.

Warriors, Settlers and Nomads: Taken from my book of the same name, this is an enjoyable and practical presentation for all grades of therapists/students that can last from 40 minutes (very well-received at the Royal College of Nursing's Annual conference in Edinburgh, in 2001) to a whole day seminar or workshop. It can be used with all styles of hypnotherapy/psychotherapy.

Illness and Getting Better: This one was developed especially for a presentation in Hong Kong and allows the therapist a powerful and effective nethodology for working with even catastrophic illness. It is unusual in that it shows how we can also help the carers and relatives of the ill person.

Psychosexual Disorders: This is a brief diploma course for established therapists who want to specialise in a truly fascinating field.

If you want to gain a Professional qualification as a hypnotherapist, we can offer you first rate training to practitioner level via The Professional Practitioner Hypnotherapy Training Diploma from Oxford College ODL. It was devised and written in full by the Principal of the Essex Institute, Terence Watts, and is based on his many thousands of hours of successful work with hypnosis, hypnotherapy and hypnoanalysis.

Terence Watts' has an established and successful school, accredited by the following leading hypnotherapists' associations:

The Association for Professional Hypnosis and Psychotherapy (APHP): APHP is a member organisation of UKCHO, an umbrella body for hypnotherapy in the UK which is foremost in the creation of the proposed regulations.

The Hypnotherapy Association: The Hypnotherapy Association is also a member organisation of UKCHO

The National Council of Psychotherapists: This is a creditable and very old-established therapists association in the UK

The course includes the entire award winning 'Easy Quit Smoking Programme' from HYPNOSENSE. This programme is one of the most effective available and received the 1998 Award for Clinical Excellence from the Hypnotherapy Research Society. This course allows you to gain the full diploma at course end, after you have successfully completed the final assessment.

The training programme was professionally designed and written in a specific manner to give the student a thorough and sound knowledge of the application of ethical clinical hypnosis and hypnotherapy, even if you have no previous experience of the field - and you don't need any previous qualifications. Our training (which many students say seems to work literally like a knowledge implant!) teaches you all you need to know and the professional hypnotherapy qualifications you will receive qualify you to obtain full professional liability insurance.

The course contains a wealth of analytical and common-sense information that will allow you to work with almost any psychological problem with which you are likely to be presented - if it can be fixed with hypnotherapy, you will be able to fix it. Many of Terence Watt's past students are now in successful private practice and many have gone on to become teachers in their own right.

Over the study hours of the course you will become a knowledgeable professional hypnotherapist and hypnoanalyst, able to help many people to discover a better life for themselves, whilst earning a good living at the same time. When it comes to job satisfaction and reward, hypnotherapy comes right at the top of the list.

Course Content
This course will take the student through the development of hypnosis; its theories and applications, and session structure supported by appropriate scripts. It will provide the student with a mass of analytical information and techniques, to achieve an appreciation of the underlying causes of emotional and physical disorders. Your client handling skills and session structure techniques are covered.

Ancestral Memory and Neurosis by Terence Watts
This paper is an outline of the hypothesis that ancestral memory may cause conflict which commences at the very beginning of the experience of life, by which I mean the moment of birth. It proposes that ancestral memories from two different parental genetic chains come together to create the potential for discord in the psyche, and/or are acted upon by external influences to cause conflict which will have to be resolved in some way if the individual is to be content in life. It is a hypothesis that is concerned more with psychotherapy as opposed to hypnotherapy, though much of the information is useful in the latter discipline.

Entry Requirements
All students must per 16 years of age and above.

Clinical Hypnotherapy will be of particular interest to those in the 'caring professions', as well as anyone with an interest in the field of Personal Development. Academic qualifications are of secondary importance, so the course is open to those with a genuine interest in hypnotherapy. Life experience and common sense are undoubtedly the most important personal qualities. It is vitally important however, that prospective course students should have the ability to be able to grasp a concept, and personalise the content and application of various techniques from scripts provided. The work is predominately vocal and mental by nature, and does not necessarily exclude those with physical impediment.
