The HypnoMenopause® Approach

The curriculum below offers a detailed view of the course contents. The first part of the course is designed to provide you with a comprehensive overview of women's experiences during menopause and the types of issues your clients may present with. You are then provided with an overview of the therapeutic modalities which, together, inform the HypnoMenopause® Approach. Having gained an in-depth understanding of the approaches used, and your clients' experience, you are then guided through the HypnoMenopause® Approach with the use of client demonstrations and extensive client materials. You are asked to work with two case studies and apply the HypnoMenopause® Approach with your clients. You are offered support throughout this process and can arrange your 1-2-1 tutorial whilst you are putting your practical skills into practice. This might be an online course, but you're never alone! In addition to the online group, you're welcome to contact Claire for advice when needed.

You have six months from point of purchase to complete the course, including case studies and tutorial. You will have access to an extensive range of online materials for twelve months and permanent access to downloadable written materials.
