Hypnotherapy CPD Event London: Rubin Battino Masterclass
Once in a life-time opportunity to learn from a genuine master of therapy.
Saturday the 16th of September 2017 at 9.30 am – 5.00 pm | Hallam Conference Centre – 44 Hallam Street, London W1W 6JJ
The day is packed full of ideas, tactics, techniques and reflections from a lifetime of working with clients.
Gain insight at what emerges from dedicated practice – the refined simplicity of excellence.
Personally experience some of Rubin Battino’s Ericksonian interventions.
We are so excited to be hosting this one-day masterclass from the eminent US Hypnotherapist Rubin Battino MS. We simply couldn’t keep it to ourselves. So for the first time ever, we are inviting non members to join us for this incredible opportunity.
So often therapists are looking for new tools to enhance their practice. While you will find many offered on this course, there is potentially much more to gain. To watch a true master at work is to see the underlying simplicity that emerges from true competence. When I watch Rubin I’m always impressed by his absence of ego, the way the power of his work is hidden by its conversational simplicity. To watch Rubin is to tap into the philosophy of Milton Erickson himself.
“While you will certainly leave with more tools for your practice, to learn from someone at this level so often connects you to something deeper that takes you to another level.” Trevor Silvester

Rubin has over forty years’ experience as an Ericksonian Hypnotherapist with unrivalled experience of working with serious illness.
He is the author of several key works on hypnotherapy, including Ericksonian Approaches, Guided Imagery and other approaches to healing, and Expectation: The very brief therapy book. He is a font of knowledge from the school of Erickson, who has added to his base from a wide range of other approaches.
Here is some of what Rubin is going to teach, in his words:
Expectation, Very Brief Therapy, and Hypnosis: “The expectation of the therapist that therapy can be both very brief and effective is the essence of working in the very brief mode. My definition of “very brief” is that I rarely see a client more than one or two times, although the client is always assured that he/she will be seen for more sessions at the client’s request. The client is told at the initial contact that this is the way I work, i.e., I treat every session as if it were the last one. So, the client arrives at the first session expecting to do significant work and also expecting significant change. Sessions are open-ended with no time limit. Intake and history are brief and to the point.
The importance of expectation in this work and single-session therapy will be discussed and illustrated. Some of the topics and methods used in a multi-modal approach are: the importance of acting As-If; Guided Metaphor; Guided Imagery; the Placebo Effect; Conversational Reframing; Rossi’s “moving hands;” Bill O’Hanlon’s “Inclusivity Therapy;” Stories and Metaphor; Ordeal Therapy; Ambiguous Function Assignments; Narrative Therapy; some approaches to pain control; Pause Power; Ideomotor Signalling; and Hypnosis (as well as NLP and Gestalt interventions you are familiar with). The client is generally asked what he/she believes will work for him/her.
Also included are some “When All Else Fails …” approaches. Attendees will be invited to experience very brief therapy via the “Universal Very Brief Therapy Intervention” (UVBTI) and other approaches. There will be a group closing healing meditation and many group experiences will be integrated into the presentation.”
