How is ICHARS different from other Institutes?
The difference is the approach!
Classically Hypnosis and some other forms of psychotherapy emphasise a lot on the past. Though we train participants with techniques that are useful in helping clients deal with past issues, our focus is a lot more on helping the client achieve their objectives. We believe most of the problems can effectively be resolved by helping the client focus on and create a change in the present.
Differentiating between models of therapy and reality
We at ICHARS believe there are different models (perceptions) of reality and each model looks good, sounds right when considered from a particular perspective and same is true about what we cover in our courses.
We encourage participants to not take any model we cover in the workshop at face value. It is important to remember that no matter how effective these models are within the context of therapy or for the purpose of creating positive change, these are simply models that should not be confused with facts or reality.
An important example is that of an often misrepresented model of “Past life regression therapy” (in our courses is described as Metaphorical regression).
Only because we cover a therapeutic technique popularly known, as past life regression therapy does not mean that we subscribe to the school of thought that past life necessarily exists.
It is a technique, which is very useful in certain context and can be disastrous in other contexts. We are more interested in training participants in where the technique is useful and where it could create a problem than in the theoretical discussion on whether or not past life really exists.
Integrating methods to work with both the conscious & unconscious
Many schools of hypnosis undermine the power of conscious mind and majorly focus on the sub/unconscious or processes, which are based on metaphysics. We really feel that for any therapy to have lasting effects, it is important to work with both the conscious and the unconscious. It is for this reason that the course is an integration of NLP, Hypnosis and Cognitive therapies.
Though, these fields are complete in themselves; and can be taught separately, all of them integrate seamlessly. Together, the powers of these tools and techniques are magnified significantly.
The change processes in NLP with the understanding of Hypnosis and Cognitive therapies make the content very potent and effective.
Online modules & support
In addition to classroom training, we have extensive online modules. The main objective of our classroom modules is to learn important concepts & practise and the purpose of online modules is to expand the concepts covered in the class and get an understanding of their extended applications. The online modules also serve a scoop of add-ons. These add-ons give an opportunity for the students to get more information on related topics and help them to stay in touch with the subject.
Why have classroom training & not complete online modules
We are very conscious about the quality of therapists after they are trained by us and hence we will continue enhancing the quality of training modules both classroom & online.
We understand the importance of continuous development along with the difficulties (financial & logistical) associated with attending classroom training and hence have worked extensively to create online modules that will at least partially reduce these difficulties. At the same time since the course includes a lot of practice, complete online training or correspondence course would lead to a negative impact on quality of therapists trained and hence we have consciously made a decision to not make the program completely online.
