Stephen Brooks
has a lifetime’s experience of using indirect hypnosiswith severe problems and difficult patients. Inspired and encouraged bytop American Psychiatrist Milton H Erickson, he was the first person tointroduce Ericksonian Hypnosis into the UK in the mid 1970's. Sincethen, his own innovative indirect therapy techniques have had a major influence on the health professions both in the UK and Europe and havechanged forever the perception of hypnosis and how it should be usedwithin therapy.He is founder of British Hypnosis Research(1979) and the BritishSociety of Clinical and Medical Ericksonian Hypnosis (1995), both major training bodies for the caring professions. His two-year Diploma courses became the standard training for thousands of health professionals andover a period of 15 years he taught indirect hypnosis courses in over 27major British hospitals. His Diploma courses also became the standardtraining for hypnotherapy associations and organisations in France,Belgium, Spain, Ireland, Malaysia and Singapore. In 1991 he wasawarded special acclaim when archive recordings of his work were
 preserved in the British National Sound Archives.He specialised in innovative approaches to Indirect Hypnosis with anemphasis on demonstrations with real patients during his training courses,something that many trainers are still afraid to do. A common thread inBrooks’ work is his humour, compassion and creative approach totherapy and his deep respect for the unique needs of the patient. Hetreated problems by spontaneously doing what is most unexpected butalways most appropriate for the patient at the time, quickly tailoring eachtherapy session to the patient.He is now responsible for the design and teaching of theBritish HypnosisResearchonline academic hypnosis course which is available to seriousstudents of hypnosis free of charge. He also teaches internationally inseveral countries.For further information about training in Indirect Hypnosis please contactBritish Hypnosis Research.
