Hypnotherapy CPD in Working with Dreams and Symbolic Modelling

Masterclass Workshops and Distance Learning CPDs

Hypnotherapy CPD in Working with Dreams and Symbolic Modelling


This course will demonstrate how to go beyond the interpretation of dreams and actualise them as a hypnotherapeutic tool. The world of unconscious logic that underlies dreaming is explored and you will learn how to convert the most entrenched problems into a resolvable form via Symbolic Modelling, a technique pioneered by David Groves, Penny Tompkins and James Lawley.

This CPD Masterclass will explain the science behind sleeping and dreaming and enable you to deal with the range of issues that clients might present with. It includes details on how to interpret dreams, the questions you might need to ask in order to glean the information you need, and several treatment interventions, including a PSI technique, the Somatic Metaphor.

This Hypnotherapy CPD in Working with Dreams and Symbolic Modelling includes the following:

The Science behind Sleep

Parasomnias/Sleep Disorders

The History of Dream Explanations

The Science behind Dreams

Interpreting Dreams

Working with Dreams: Therapeutic Interventions

Working with Dreams: Client Work

Metaphor and Symbolic Modelling

Using Symbols, Metaphors and Imagery in Therapy

The Somatic Metaphor (PSI Technique)

PSI Training have developed a unique model of therapy and this is reflected in our Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses.  We offer hypnotherapists the opportunity to study these at home through our distance learning CPD diploma courses. These distance-learning CPD courses are adapted from our weekend intensive Masterclasses, which have been running since the mid-nineties. 

In addition, we continue to offer a variety of advanced one- and two-day Masterclasses run as face-to-face workshops which are open to all hypnotherapists and those with a psychotherapy background. These are advertised on our website and run throughout the year at a number of locations, including Newbury and Salisbury/Southampton.  We also run bespoke Masterclasses for hypnotherapy groups, peer groups and corporate clients, throughout the UK and Europe.

 All of our CPD courses are the culmination of over 40 years’ experience in the field of hypno-psychotherapy. All are certificated for CPD validation and are equivalent to 15 hours CPD study (with the exception of any one-day courses). They are all available as a Masterclass or by distance learning.

 Our Masterclasses are designed to be run over a weekend. If you are interested in a one-day introductory workshop, please get in touch and we can discuss your requirements.
