Today I am planning ahead for the academic and council meetings I will be attending this year.

Learning never stops when it comes to being a potent, effective and useful hypnotherapist, and I believe it’s vital that therapists stay up-to-date with the latest developments both in practical therapeutic techniques and in academic experimental research. I am not alone in this view of course, and it is a professional requirement of professional Hypnotherapy bodies of note that every year therapists undertake a certain amount of continuing professional development (C.P.D). This of course is a good thing, but the hours required are often simply not enough, in my view, and I do my best to exceed them and encourage other hypnotherapists so do so also.

As a member of the Council for the Royal Society of Medicine ‘Hypnosis and Psychosomatic Medicine’ section, I am also required to attend council meetings where the planning of the section business, and the academic meeting we will be hosting each year goes on (and much more besides). The purpose of the Section is to promote academic learning and the use of clinical hypnosis within healthcare settings, and the quality of the academic meetings provided every year is of very high quality. These Council meeting tend to coincide with the academic meeting, so the convenience of theose who don't live in London, so these end up being very long and intense days.

I’m so looking forward to this next excellent meeting below in March, which is bound to receive very high interest, so if you plan to come, please to do your place ASAP. The last meeting was sold out and only living streaming was available latterly as the Hypnosis section meetings receive higher and higher attendance.

If you are attending, please do say hello. I will certainly be there, not only because I have a 22 year old Muay Thai Kickboxer for a son, training to be world champion one day, and I'm under strict instructions to get an autograph from Gary Turner and pick his brains!. Therapy can be a lonely world actually, and meetings can often filled with competition and posturing! At the Royal Society of Medicine we like to be friendly and our aim is to promote the wonderful tool that is hypnosis for the benefit of everyone.
