I was fortunate enough to complete my hypnotherapy training in-house at the Essex Institute of Clinical Hypnosis in Southend on Sea, Essex under the guidance of Terence Watts.
Terence Watts is the first person from any psychotherapy-related profession to achieve the level of ‘MCGI’ – Member of the City and Guilds Institute. It was awarded on the creation and implementation of a specialist hypnotherapy course in psychosexual disorders, as well as for a number of his other highly regarded and recognised courses in the field of hypnotherapy, counselling and coaching.
The Essex Institute is one of very few schools that has the legal right to call itself an ‘Institute’ with UK Government approval. To gain ’Institute’ status requires permission from the UK secretary of State. The school must show evidence of a high level of research, training and leadership in the fields of hypnotherapy and teaching, and they must be able to provide training materials for other schools in the UK and Worldwide. We belong to a number of associations, including data protection, and are fully DBS checked with enhanced disclosure that includes working with children.
