My student’s testimonials:
‘I would recommend this course to anyone who is serious about becoming a qualified hypnotherapist. Kinga has given me so much more confidence in my ability as a hypnotherapist. I had previously studied for a year on a another course but before coming on Kinga’s course I was not able to put theory into practice. Kinga demonstrates every technique that she teaches which enables the student to both experience hypnotherapy in action but also see a highly competent therapist in action. This was lacking on the previous course I went on and as a consequence, until I studied with Kinga, had never been ‘hypnotised’ or experienced a trance state. The course notes are comprehensive and well written and we all got plenty of practise. Kinga is an excellent and extremely knowledgeable teacher; the pace of the course was just right and the venue is wonderful. In short I cannot praise the course enough. It is excellent value for money.’ L. Whitehouse
‘When I decided I wanted to go on a hypnotherapy course I like many checked out courses online and visited various blogs of those who had been on courses….What a nightmare …UK appears to be full of academic courses run by pure academics …sadly it appears many end up with a qualification that cost thousands of pounds but still cannot hypnotise anyone…. I signed up for Kinga’s course and was immediately impressed with the quality of material and advice and support. Day one like every day was not just learning but also practicing techniques learned with fellow learners … By the end of the Certification course I not only had a certificate but enough experience and confidence to go out into the world and help clients. To be honest it left me feeling spiritually uplifted I felt like I had also been on a motivational course… I will be returning to train for the diploma with Kinga and feel with her guidance and support I will become a valuable hypnotherapist. I have organised rooms and a practice at a local pharmacist with a handful of clients. An amazing course that If you are considering hypnotherapist and want a career not just a piece of paper I would highly recommend. Kinga Oldham is truly inspirational and simply an excellent tutor. Hypnotherapy is obviously her passion and she contaminates you with her enthusiasm. For those who have no experience she is definitely for you. For officially qualified hypnotherapists who realised they have just paid to read about hypnotherapy -don’t waste time and money invest in yourself and contact Kinga.’ R.Pusey
‘I have just been on the most amazing journey, culminating in the Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy from MCCH. The journey – professional, personal, and spiritual – felt complete in itself, yet I know it was just the first stage in what will be a long and fulfilling career, and a new chapter in my life. The course was thorough, combining theory with much practice, and has left me with the confidence and skills to deal with any scenario I come across in the future. Kinga is a truly inspirational teacher, mentor, and role model and I can’t thank her enough for the experience this course has given me. ‘ A. Craven
‘I would recommend the course to anyone looking to do Hypnotherapy. I had an amazing experience and completed the course feeling professional and confident to do the job. In the course we had so much time to practice with the different inductions, deepeners, and hypnosis without reading a script which was brilliant! After practice we would all share our experiences and give feedback which was a great way of learning. I wouldn’t have understood the theory if we didn’t practice. We all had the chance to be hypnotised by our trainer too with real problems so we could see how to do things for example what to do when people go into panic, how to ground people, and most of all how there is no right or wrong answer you can be so flexible with it. I honestly could not ask for a better trainer. Kinga invested a lot of time into us and believed in us all. Kinga was so supportive and explained everything. Kinga showed us how to use our voice; she showed us many techniques and went through the modules with us. If you were ever stuck Kinga would go through everything until you understood. Overall Kinga was brilliant and gave us all the support needed. Thank you so much.’ S. Rhodes
‘I would like to thank you Kinga for delivering an amazing course. I have learned so much from you. I really enjoyed all the practical advice and putting theory into practice. You have also helped me to overcome a difficult childhood issue. I can’t recommend this course highly enough.’ P. Gardner
‘Kinga is an inspirational woman. My journey to being a hypnotherapist wouldn’t have been quite the same without her guidance and insight. The course by MCCH is both thorough and enjoyable, and equips the trainee with all the tools necessary to begin practising. There is lots of practice – something other courses don’t require – but I believe this to be one of the most important factors in training – your voice and delivery is key to success!’ Z. Johnson
My aim as a therapist:
is to assist you to live a healthier, happier and more fulfilled life, always try to find a self-empowered solution to your problem. In my therapies I often use a combination of Neuro Linguistic Programming, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or Psychoanalysis with other powerful techniques.
Here are some examples:
Age regression which is a very intense form of hypnosis. Age regression allows you to vividly recollect past events, finding the beginning or original source of an issue and neutralise it. This is helpful in treating a wide array of conditions like fears, compulsive behaviours or addictions. In a safe but a very deep hypnotic trance behaviours can be re-framed to make way for a new happier and healthier outlook on life.
Systematic desensitisation. This is a way to eliminate a panic/anxiety response to phobias, fears and obsessions by teaching a person – gradually and repetitively – to replace the feelings of anxiety with another much more positive feeling (e.g. a happy and secure memory from the past). This highly effective behavioural hypnotherapy, with its concentration on learning a different response to a stimulus, brings most of the time an instant relief.
Parts hypnosis. We all have parts of our personality. Have you ever said to someone “a part of me really wants to lose weight but another part says that it’s just too much work.” This is a normal occurrence because we all have parts of our personality that have split off and keep us struggling to make decisions. Just as with any team effort, life flows more smoothly when our parts are working together. The most obvious time to employ parts therapy or one of its variations is when there an obvious inner conflict preventing a client from achieving an important goal, such as losing weight.
Anchoring refers to creating a resourceful state which you can access in a positive situation and then associating it with a situation that causes you discomfort. There are many ways to do this and the most effective way it to use a number of representational systems and to layer the anchors so that you can have a doubling effect; for example a word that means calm and also a circle of confidence.
Symptom manipulation. Fundamental to this concept is that if you can move or change a symptom in some fashion.. then it can be banished completely. It also complements the idea the body and mind is able to cope much better with small steps or building blocks whenever change is necessary. Some examples: symptom substitution (move a facial tick to a toe), symptom amelioration – aim to have control over it (increase severity.. then decrease… suggesting what can be increased can be decreased).
Guided imagery has the built-in capacity to deliver multiple layers of complex, encoded messages by way of simple symbols and metaphors. The incredible effectiveness of this technique demonstrates its positive impact on both mental and physical health.
Past life regression is an exciting trip into your own past lives, unlocking doors in your mind that open other worlds, worlds that were yours in another time. Some people discover lives that they have shared with people that they have a close bond with, in their present life. Others are drawn to certain places or countries that they immediately feel comfortable and familiar with. Also, exploring past lives can help to resolve current physical or emotional problems.
I am also a great believer in the power of forgiveness therapy, a healing method which aims to free the person from the shackles of hatred. This technique has the potential to release a lifetime of accumulated emotional baggage.
Here is a sample of my work:
Kinga is registered with CNHC. The Department of Health has recommended that where people are looking for complementary healthcare therapists they use someone who is CNHC registered. This provides additional assurance that CNHC registrants meet the standards of patient safety and service quality. The General Medical Council guidance to doctors confirms that they are able to refer patients to practitioners on Accredited Registers.
Private health cash plans: CNHC registration is recognised for reimbursement with a number of private health cash plan providers such as Health Shield, Simply Health & a number of specific employer plans with Westfield Health.
Kinga is actively encouraging the community to support each other through charitable activities. Kinga is a currently a volunteer for Cyril Flint. With over 5 million elderly people living on their own, and 50% citing television as their main source of company, loneliness is an ever-present problem within our community (Campaign To End Loneliness). Cyril Flint, an elderly pensioner, spent 20 lonely Christmas holidays on his own, since the passing of his wife. Cyril’s story evoked a wave of compassion within the community. Setting up an informal befriending service, designed to help prevent social isolation, seemed like the perfect solution. Since its creation, the scheme has considerably grown throughout the Manchester area.
