You may choose to participate in this beliefs training course for many different reasons. Working with beliefs is a common component of any hypnotherapy session.

You can use the belief-change techniques and belief-identification approaches presented in this training course for a wide range of applications, including identifying, working with, challenging and disputing unhelpful, irrational, unhealthy beliefs, as well as developing helpful, rational, healthy beliefs and integrating those new beliefs into everyday life.


Section 1: What are beliefs?

Having a clear understanding of what a belief is gives a clear starting point to understanding the impact and influence of beliefs on our lives. In this section we consider how beliefs relate to our thoughts, situations and responses. This leads on to how our beliefs can lead to disturbance. Within this section, you will also discover how to find client beliefs with a range of techniques to achieve this, including:

Listening for client beliefs
Listening to client beliefs
Using alert state guided visualisations
Using hypnosis insight techniques


Section 2: Identifying unhelpful beliefs

When you have located the client beliefs (or your own) that you would like to work with, it is helpful to be able to identify what type of unhelpful belief it is and the impact and influence of that belief on day-to-day life. This section explores:

Demanding beliefs
Negative beliefs
Rigid beliefs
Distorted beliefs
Limiting beliefs


Section 3: Creating helpful beliefs

Simply identifying unhelpful beliefs is a good start to the process, as it provides insight into the effect of that belief on the client’s (or your) thoughts, behaviours and even physical or psychological symptoms. However, it is then beneficial to work on those beliefs where change is desired, whether that is because those beliefs are leading to unwelcome thoughts, unwanted behaviours or they simply limit the person in other ways. In this section, you will learn about how helpful beliefs can lead to survival, happiness, healthy feelings and behaviours, whilst exploring:

Preferential beliefs
Positive beliefs
Flexible beliefs
Empowering beliefs


Section 4: Beliefs in action

In this section you are presented with two case studies that illustrate the impact and influence that unhelpful and helpful beliefs can have for similar situations. A commentary is provided to give you a clear insight into the contributory factors in each situation.

Case study 1: Julia and Fiona
Case study 2: Kim and Ryan


Section 5: Working with beliefs

Finally, you will learn how to work with the unhelpful beliefs previously identified and use effective challenging and disputing approaches to achieve insight and positive development of helpful beliefs. In this section you will discover alert state and cognitive approaches for belief change work, together with hypnotherapy techniques to aid the formation of helpful beliefs. Topics and techniques include:

Response programming and response re-programming
Using hypnotherapy insight techniques
Developing emotional responsibility
Exploring thoughts, situations and responses
Preparing for change
Disputing beliefs
Challenging beliefs
The 3 questions technique
Stopping unwanted thoughts
Change integration: From knowing to doing
Future pacing change work
Mental rehearsal
