Looking for a new career? Have you considered hypnotherapy? It is one of the fastest growing careers in the UK and is recognised as a flexible rewarding career choice. Here’s why.
1 in 4 of us will suffer from some form of mental health issue each year. The pressures of modern life means stress, anxiety and depression are on the rise and the National Health Service is struggling to cope.
In 2012 I was one of those 1 in 4. A diagnosis of M.E. (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) was finally reached, but the uncertainty during the 2 years it took to get a diagnosis sent my anxiety rocketing and my confidence plummeting which meant that what started out as a physical health issue spiralled into a mental health issue too. I went from being someone who ran twice a week, swam twice a week with a very successful career, to the person who struggled to put one foot in front of another or string together a decent sentence.
Hypnotherapy helped me get my life back on track. I recognised that the high stress work environment I had thrived in before was no longer doing me any favours. I was so inspired by how hypnotherapy had helped me that I rather rashly decided the solution was to retrain as a hypnotherapist myself.
I’m pleased to say I am no longer one of the 1 in 4 – I’m now one of the 1 in 36,000. I’m one of the growing body of professional hypnotherapists who are leading the way in mental health. I help people overcome stress, anxiety and depression; I help my clients build their confidence and self-esteem so they can move forward with their lives.
It sounded great as I imagined it in my mind – how lovely it would be to help others every day, to choose the hours I wanted to work, to ditch the daily commute. What a fulfilling life I would have! But then reality hit, I couldn’t just give up work and retrain and set up a new business – I had a mortgage to pay!
My hypnotherapist recommended I contact CPHT as they provided the best qualification in the UK – I’d read about their diploma course and it sounded amazing. I was nervous calling them because I couldn’t figure out how I could find the time or the money to retrain. I need not have worried – they told me I could do the course at weekends and pay for it in monthly instalments which meant there was nothing to hold me back!
I no longer have to imagine how lovely it is to help others every day, I don’t have to imagine what it’s like to choose when I want to work. I don’t have to imagine what my life would be like without the daily commute and the stressful work environment. I live that fulfilling life every day on the other side of the 1 in 4 – as part of the solution, not feeling stuck in the problem.
