Milton Erickson was known as a genius when it came to prescribing therapy for his patients. This 9 day masterclass will cover his approach to a wide range of problems with an emphasis on demonstrations and skill based exercises covering specific problem areas each day.


What You Will Achieve

BHRTI founder Stephen Brooks is a world renowned hypnotherapist and trainer and for 40 years has been one of the major authorities on Ericksonian Hypnotherapy. On this course Stephen will work live with patients demonstrating Erickson’s approach.

The course guarantees to bring out your sense of adventure and innovation as a therapist and will teach you how to combine strategic therapy, tasking, paradoxical intervention, metaphors, indirect suggestion and hypnosis into successful treatment programs.

The course is suitable for members of the caring professions, practicing therapists and students of hypnosis. It is an international training ideal for people traveling from other countries.

We have designed this course to give students first hand experience of seeing Erickson’s approach to hypnotherapy in action. It is a practical skill based training featuring demonstrations of therapy in addition to lectures and group exercises. Our goal is that by the end of the 9 days you will have an in depth understanding of how Erickson worked therapeutically and be able to apply Erickson’s skills yourself.

Because of the BHRTI’s outstanding contribution to the field of Ericksonian hypnosis training over the past 40 years, few courses today can offer the same degree of expertise regarding Erickson’s work. Throughout this training, we constantly place emphasis on the ethical and practical application of his skills. 



Introduction to the British Hypnosis Research and Training Institute

We believe passionately that high quality hypnosis training, and especially Ericksonian training, offers students the chance to be much more successful in the field of psychology, psychotherapy and counselling. For more than 30 years we have made a commitment to training people from all over the world in these skills and techniques and to date have trained over 6000 people from 40 countries. This unique approach developed by the British Hypnosis Research and Training Institute has established us as pioneers in the psychotherapy training field.

The British Hypnosis Research and Training Institute was originally founded at the University of Cambridge in 1979 as a research association. In 1986 we decided there was a need to provide an ethical and professional skill based training and qualification to people in the caring professions and we were the first organisation to teach Ericksonian Hypnosis courses in Europe. Our courses have evolved from the respected courses established by the BHRTI in over 20 British hospitals and universities during this time.

The British Hypnosis Research and Training Institute is based at Birkbeck College in the University of London and is dedicated to teaching international health professionals and new students of hypnosis, psychotherapy and personal development, the theory, skills and methodology of Indirect Hypnosis combined with Ericksonian Psychotherapy and NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming). Our comprehensive BHRTI course curriculum is based on the unique combination of these three cutting edge disciplines.

Stephen Brooks was born 21 July 1951 in Cambridge, UK. As an early practicing British psychotherapist and hypnotherapist he was the first to introduce Ericksonian Hypnosis to Europe in 1979. Throughout his career he has pioneered the use of Indirect Hypnosis in the medical profession with courses in over 20 British hospitals and universities. He developed an approach to psychotherapy based on Non Attachment which directly treats the causes of problems and emphasises compassion for patients.
