It is interesting what is risky to one person is a simple challenge to another. One person may believe that anything is worth a try and another may think that the risk of failing, tips the balance.
So what determines how we evaluate whether something is worth the risk?
Well maybe it’s when we think that something is being to be too costly: financial cost, emotional cost or the risk of being not quite good enough?
Are we prone to over exaggerating the risks? Do we not take risks in life everyday. Each decision we make has an element of risk, as it may turn out well or it may not. We may be good at something or we may not. We may be successful or we may not. We somehow balance the risk in our minds, the result of which determines the quality of our lives.
When I decided to train as a Clinical Hypnotherapist did I take a risk? (Cathy Eland, Course Tutor at Liverpool CPHT)
When my clients come to see me about their anxieties, do they take a risk?
‘Yes’ is the answer.
But wouldn’t it be useful for us to look at each opportunity and realistically evaluate the risk. If that risk involves an element of anxiety, are we not able to say to ourselves, it’s worth it. Progress always carries a price, and that price is that we manage ourselves to stay focused on our goal.
That is the way that a big risk becomes small, perhaps not a risk at all, now a challenge or a simple task.

Are you considering a change of career? Choosing to train as a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist with CPHT Liverpool could change your life as well as those of others.
When the tutor of CPHT Manchester asked Jenny Mellenchip if she wanted to work as a hypnotherapist she said ‘Yes’. After all the interview was to see if she was made of the right stuff, but inside she admits to being terrified. Jenny says, “After all, I had a good job in the sales and marketing industry, working with lovely people and earning a decent wage, I worried that I would never have the courage to be self-employed.” Well, at the right time, Jenny did have the courage to become self-employed, but she admits that she wouldn’t have been able to do so, if she hadn’t been encouraged to practice on real clients free of charge, from day one of the course.
Initially she practiced carrying out relaxation with friends & family. Then after month three, she moved onto people with anxiety and depression. Each month after that saw her practicing on more people and she quickly became experienced in helping people suffering from an ever-growing list of conditions. These conditions ranged from phobias, to weight loss, stopping smoking and sports performance. As Jenny started to see people improve from her sessions, her confidence began to grow along with her competence as a hypnotherapist.
By month seven, along with the other students, she was allowed to charge her clients half price and she could really start to see the potential of running her own business. Her marketing background came in very useful and after qualification she moved to part-time hours at work and this allowed her to build her business up quickly. A further 10 months in practice juggling her employed role with that of a part time hypnotherapist, saw her handing in her notice at work.
Since then she has worked as a full-time hypnotherapist helping people to get their lives back on track. Jenny says “I have met some wonderful people going through some very difficult times and helped their life to become easier. I love my job and I have the work/life balance that I could only dream of as an employee with a daily commute of 130 miles.”
So much so that Jenny, along with Catherine Eland another CPHT graduate, agreed to start the first CPHT hypnotherapy training school in Leeds. They were keen to take the message about solution focused hypnotherapy to the people of Leeds and give them the same opportunities that they had been given.
CPHT Leeds is now on its third successful course at Leeds Trinity University. Cathy & Jenny love seeing the students become confident & extremely competent hypnotherapists & hearing about their many success stories. As a result, they now wish to extend this same opportunity to the people of Liverpool & the surrounding areas. Starting in March 2019, Jenny & Cathy will be running the first CPHT hypnotherapy training course in Liverpool. It will be held at the Partnership for learning charity, training & conference centre in Speke, Liverpool.
They are both excited about being able to help those people of Liverpool who wish to train as Solution Focused Hypnotherapists. Jenny & Cathy hope that if you’re considering a change of career, that you choose to train as a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist. They know that it has the potential to change your life in the same way that it did theirs!
