Learn Self-Hypnosis to Improve Your Creativity 2 day Courses for Writers

Mon 17 Nov 2014 @ 9:00 - Tue 18 Nov 2014 @ 16:30


Hypnosis is a normal and natural state of mind very like daydreaming. In hypnosis, your attention is turned inwards to some degree and the mind is settled. It’s much easier in this state to notice the drift of your thoughts. These can be consciously constructed or you can as it were ‘just sit and watch’ images arising spontaneously from the subconscious part of the mind, where the roots of our creativity lie.
The skill of self-hypnosis can be quickly and easily learned. Being in hypnosis is in itself profoundly relaxing (though it is not sleep!) and you return to normal everyday consciousness feeling refreshed. More importantly, the state of hypnosis allows access to the subconscious and our amazing resources of memory and imagination.
The course will include –
– An overview of how creativity can be developed when the conscious and subconscious parts of the mind work together.
– An explanation of what hypnosis is, how it can be used therapeutically (i.e. a brief discussion of hypnotherapy) and how learning the skill of self-hypnosis can benefit writers.
– Relaxation sessions where you experience the state of hypnosis.
– Further group sessions where hypnosis is used with a particular emphasis on writing – visualisations, imagined conversations with your fictional characters, putting yourself into locations that feature in your work, generating ideas for future projects etc.
– Steve can offer hypnotherapy to help resolve writing related issues such as writer’s block. These sessions can be on a one-to- one basis if preferred or as a demonstration to the group.
– One-to-one sessions to discuss aspects of your writing are also available. Note however that you can book either a one-to-one hypnosis session or a writing consultation (due to constraints of time).
– Each course member will receive a pack of handouts and also a self-hypnosis relaxation CD so that you can practise your newly learned skill after the course has finished.
