Where: Marsham Court Hotel, 3 Russell Cotes Road,Bournemouth,Dorset,BH1 3AB

The usual format of Professional Hypnotherapy Network Peer Support Meetings is for the first hour we welcome a speaker, for the second hour we spend 30 minutes discussing any client issue or advice you may need and then 30 minutes sharing any business issues.

The meetings count towards your annual CPD hours requirement.

For our September meeting our speaker is Karen Puttick


The Practical Application of Imagination

As hypnotherapists, we get to see clients who already have a problem. What if we could get in early – helping people to understand and manage stress more effectively by sharing a toolbox of techniques they can access and make their own?

The Imaginators Programme takes the client on a journey of applied imagination, culminating in the simplest self-hypnosis process. The Online Programme brings together Karen Puttick’s knowledge gained through over 40 years of using self-hypnosis, 25 years as a meditation teacher, plus her learning and experience as a Clinical Hypnotherapist. It is suitable for use either as a self-development tool, or for use by therapists, parents or teachers.

About Karen

Karen’s Father was a hypnotherapist and taught her self-hypnosis in her late teens, which has proven a wonderful tool in situations such as exams, during childbirth, whilst undergoing surgery and in times of stress – this informed her work using meditation and storytelling techniques and led Karen to train professionally to share these skills with clients.

In her hypnotherapy and coaching practice which she runs from her home in Amersham Buckinghamshire, Karen has a general practice and specialises in working with children and young people including some SEN (finalist in the Best Business Woman Awards 2015 for her work with children and families).

Registered with PHN, NCH, GHR, and CNHC, her additional training includes Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy, Advanced Hypnotherapy, Hypnotic Coaching, Educational Performance and Virtual Gastric Band. Karen offers professional supervision for hypnotherapists and teaches meditation, mindfulness, and runs Laughter Yoga groups. She is also the author of several therapy based books and facilitates workshops and group training.

Her online “Imaginators Programme” was launched in April 2018 and more information is available at https://www.Mindset4Change.com
