The Hypnotherapy and Cognitive Techniques for Stress Management Diploma is an incredibly comprehensive course in the subject of stress management. The course is absolutely packed with information about how stress occurs, the science behind its effects, and how the brain can be used to combat it, which is followed by a huge number of practical techniques, from several disciplines, that can be used to manage stress and live a healthier life.
This course guides you through 11 comprehensive modules:
The Hypnotherapy and Cognitive Techniques for Stress Management Diploma Course opens with a module that aims to help students understand stress in its many guises. It talks of the many ways stress can affect us – both physically and mentally (including its effects on the gut, and ‘the second brain'), why we become stressed, and even how stress can be considered a good thing when managed effectively.
The 2nd module continues to talk about the body and its physical reaction to stress, with detailed explanation and exercises that can be performed, to aid understanding. The module then moves on to illustrate techniques that students can use straight away, to help reduce the feelings of stress on the mind and body, as soon as they manifest themselves. Various coping strategies are also explained, which, when practiced, will become second nature in helping combat stress before it takes root. The practice of mindfulness is also briefly introduced here.
As the most powerful tool any of us have against the symptoms of stress, the 3rd module of the Hypnotherapy and Cognitive Techniques for Stress Management Diploma Course gives students a comprehensive understanding and insight into the functions and power of the brain. This also includes suggestions on how to improve the health of your brain and discusses various concepts of how the brain functions in business settings.
The 4th of the course's modules provides students with a basic understanding of hypnotherapy; covering its history, what it is and isn't, how it works, the science behind it, and the types of hypnosis available. The module then moves onto discussing how hypnosis techniques can be implemented to the self, to achieve goals and change your life, whether it is a habit or state of mind that needs changing or an ambition you wish to achieve. The last part of the module provides students with a practical, step-by-step guide to self-hypnosis.
Just as with hypnotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (commonly abbreviated to ‘CBT') is a practical way of approaching and changing your mind set. The Hypnotherapy and Cognitive Techniques for Stress Management Diploma Course's 5th module gives students a good understanding of the practice and the techniques involved in CBT, and its place in dealing with anxiety.
More incredible tools, which are often used in conjunction with CBT (known as Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy or MBCT), mindfulness and meditation are the focus of module 6. Here both practices are introduced, with the benefits of each explained, as well as how they can be incorporated into daily life, to combat or even avoid stress and anxiety. The module also explains what Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy is and gives practical explanations on how and when to use meditation as part of your daily routine.
The 7th module of the Hypnotherapy and Cognitive Techniques for Stress Management Diploma Course discusses how to recognise the symptoms of stress in the employees of business owners and how mindfulness can be incorporated into the workplace, to benefit both the employees themselves and the business as a whole. This module also provides practical techniques that employees can use in the workplace.
It is commonly known that taking time to concentrate on breathing can help when dealing with a stressful situation, physically, emotionally, and mentally, but most of us don't know how to properly apply breathing techniques. Module 8 gives students a greater understanding of why breathing helps and then continues to provide various breathing techniques, along with when and how to use each.
Another massive subject in the area of developing mental strength, the 9th module of the Hypnotherapy and Cognitive Techniques for Stress Management Diploma Course explains Neuro-Linguistic Programming (commonly known as NLP) techniques and how these can help in improving your mind-set and reaching personal goals, as well as providing plenty of exercises for students to work through, to concretize understanding.
Many stressful situations can come about from miscommunication or a lack of communication. Module 10 discusses the huge difference to our working and personal lives that can be made when we are mindful of how we communicate and when we ensure certain components of communication are adhered to and each party understands the other.
The final module of the Hypnotherapy and Cognitive Techniques for Stress Management Diploma Course talks more about the mind, how it works, and how to recognise and change negative thoughts. Also explained are the possible causes and sources of stress, the common ways that people try to deal with stress in negative ways, and how these can be put aside to focus on alternative, more positive ways, which will help you to recover.
