Things have been quiet here on the hypnosis blog while I have been running the second half of my intensive hypnotherapy diploma here in Bournemouth for the past nine days.
What can I say? I loved every minute of it, as usual. The sun shone throughout. It shone gloriously and warmly and the students often sat on the decks overlooking the sea hypnotising each other with the sun shining down on them.
Here is the view from the training room early one morning.
We had a sumptuous selection of goodies presented during tea breaks too, one of my lovely SLovenian students brought a very tasty cake that was baked at home and brought to Bournemouth for us all to tuck into on one of the tea breaks:
Then on the final day, my lovely assistant (and one of my favourite people on the planet) brilliant hypnotherapist Lindsay Shepherd brought us all her delectable selection of homemade cupcakes which got devoured!
We actually filmed the entire event, which did mean that i had to powder my shiny face each day so as not to blind viewers!
On one day, when passing the ballroom in the hotel, I could not resist knee skidding on the dancefloor… I mean, what human could possibly resist this:
This years intensive diploma course were a marvellous group of students, I loved working with them. Here they are, all smiley and lovely:
Many thanks to you all, you are a fabulous and highly talented group of people that I know are going to go on and do wonderful things in the world. i have smaller numbers on the intensive course than on my monthly diploma due to the nature of the course and felt that I was saying goodbye to good friends yesterday. Sad to wave them off into the distance, but it has been an invigorating journey with a lot of joy and laughter and I know I am going to see lots more of these guys in the future.
The blog will be back to usual tomorrow.
I think the highlight was when ian tried sliding on the dancefloor, buckled, and “dented” the dancefloor with his knee. Watching you laugh almost uncontrollably for the next five minutes was almost too funny!!
Hi Rich, that was indeed a very funny moment. Ian, bless him, launched himself into a knee skid, found some hardcore friction, and got jettisoned upwards and sideways while we watched… He took up some of the surface wax to leave a bare patch to show where he’d been! Very funny to watch. It is making me giggle to write this now.
How many diploma courses include knee-skidding, eh?
Very well done on many levels this week Rich.
Lol Rich I think the fact that we could actually make Adam start to giggle by the end of the course by doing nothing other than making eye contact was also hilarious!
Matt, it did get uncontrollable at one point… You started it with your eyebrow raising… Then Paul and Rich joined the giggling ranks and deep breaths were the only solution!
More great work this week Matt, I think you are going to be a star in this field.
I am really sorry that I couldn’t make it to see you all this time on the course. Sounds as if you all had a great time and congratulations to you all. We will certainly be very interested in your progress and don’t hesitate to get in touch if you think we can help in any way.
Thanks Adam, I hope so. I just wish I could have gotten over certain ‘inhibitions’. However, a year ago I would never have even gone on the course due to them, so i guess there is some progress there.
Its ok Keith, but it is lucky that you did put in an appearance in March otherwise the group would now be convinced that you are infact an alter ego of Mr Easons. Even back then there were suggestions that the ‘Keith’ we were introduced to was infact just a hotel worker that Adam had slipped a tenner to.
Is Keith ‘the part’ Adam? Or is Adam ‘the part’ Keith?
Quite a paranoid group aren’t we? 😀
Hi Matt, you did a marvellous job and no need to worry about anything.
Yes, Keith is real… And you paranoid chaps know that there is no alter ego and there is no plant! 😉
I look forward to seeing your homework Matt, take care.
