Frequently asked Questions

It is a practitioner course for those working as therapists, coaches and trainers or those interested in becoming one.

The short answer, this course is not meant for them, there are other courses we have that will benefit them more.

The long answer is that while during the course, our focus is to ensure that the participants develop advanced coaching and therapeutic skills - skills that are powerful enough to transform lives. One of the most important features of the course is the emphasis on practicing these skills, not only with others but also yourself. In other words, each participant personally experiences the transformation in his/her own life. This personal transformation makes them internalize the true essence of these skills as well as gives them the confidence to work with others.

So, “Yes”, participants do experience breakthroughs in their own lives and can definitely bring changes in their own life, yet we only encourage people who are looking at becoming practitioners themselves to join us for this program.

Because in our understanding for a course to be highly effective, its format and style of delivery needs to be in sync with the end objective. So if the end objective is more focused, it is overall more effective.

Also, we have noticed that giving practitioners certificate to those who were looking for self-help is not a good idea. Once they receive the certificate, they feel motivated to practice, if only to recover what they invested in the course. But if they were not focused on working with others during classroom practice and training, they do not have the necessary skills to become a practitioner.

At ICHARS, being responsible is one of our core values we wouldn’t be comfortable encouraging such practice.

  • Mental health practitioners (Psychologist, Psychiatrist, Counsellor)
  • Registered health practitioner (Medicines, Dentistry, Ayurveda, Yoga, Homeopathy…..)
  • Students pursuing a course in mental health

You can enroll for our Cognitive Hypnotic Coaching Course. The course helps you develop advanced coaching competencies to enable you to work as a Life Coach or a Relationship Coach.

This is a very comprehensive eclectic course based on the integration of multiple modalities. Some of these modalities are:

  • Clinical Hypnotherapy, including:
    • Guided imagery
    • Free association
    • Meditation
    • Deep relaxation…
  • Elements of Cognitive therapies (Positive Psychotherapy, Solution focused brief therapy, CBT & REBT)
  • Neuro Linguistic Programming
  • Models from Life Coaching
  • Mindfulness
  • Metaphors

We noticed that a lot of practitioners were learning these approaches separately and were getting confused as to which approach to use in what place. The question they were asking is which one to use.

But once you look at these approaches as a whole, you realize that the right question is not which one to use but how to integrate them together. So, it made sense to integrate these approaches into a single comprehensive curriculum.

On the face of it these approaches may appear to be different. But once you go deeper into each of these, you realize that the primary concepts on which these approaches are based are quite similar.

Also, once you understand hypnosis you realize that it acts like a thread that can connect most of these apparently different approaches. One of the key advantages of this integration is that no matter which course on human behaviour you have attended or you will attend, it can be integrated into what you are learning in the CHCP course.

The course has been designed in a way that each level is divided in 3 parts:

  • Pre Level Online Modules
  • Classroom training
  • Post Level online modules

Pre Level online modules focus on concepts and theory.

Classroom training focuses on demonstrations, practice sessions and discussions.

Post level online module include supporting material like forms, checklists and also recordings of techniques practiced during the classroom sessions. These recordings are provided so that you can continue to learn by observing these sessions and use them for reference before a session with client if required.

Completing the pre level online course is a pre-requisite to attending the classroom training. Post level online course is for your reference and hence completing the same is recommended but not a requirement for attending the next level.

We provide our participants the flexibility to join for a batch different from the one they enrolled for provided we are informed at least a week before the starting date of the batch you had enrolled for. In case you have to make changes less than 7 days before the batch starts you can but you will need to pay additional venue charges for the next workshop.

There are different ways in which we support our participants:

  1. We have a whatsapp group only for participants where you can ask us queries about concepts and techniques covered during the course.
  2. You can call ICHARS trainers for any queries which you would not like to discuss on whatsapp or for which you require a more detailed discussions.
  3. The access to online modules is available to you for lifetime. We also keep updating these modules with newer information to ensure that our old participants remain in sync with latest updates in the course.
  4. You can repeat any course you have attended with ICHARS by paying only the venue charges for the day you are attending.
  5. If you are in Mumbai, you can join our charitable clinic and take sessions with clients under supervision
  6. If you are a trainer and would like to incorporate some of the topics in your trainings, we also provide guidance for the same.
  7. Through our tie up with citationsy, you also get access to many research papers for which you would otherwise need to pay for.

Apart from the above in the coming months we are also planning:

  • Video conferences for case discussions
  • To set up charitable clinics and provide internship opportunities in other cities
  • To promote our participants by registering them to a practitioners directory and promoting the same

We are also open for any other ideas with which we can help our participants. A lot of the above steps have been a result of suggestions from our existing participants.

All the certificate programs that focus on developing coaching or therapeutic skills are basically skill building programs. None of these courses be it Hypnosis, NLP, CBT, REBT, TA are regulated by any regulatory authority. So all certificates are just that certificates. They do not have any legal validity… but that doesn’t make them illegal either.

Whether you can legally use these skills or not depends on the area in which you are applying these skills. So for example if you are promoting yourself as a life coach or a mind coach or a behavioural trainer and staying within the limits of what these people can do, you can freely use these skills as these titles do not have any legal restrictions.

But if you are promoting yourself as a doctor or a psychologist or a psychiatrist and handling cases related to intense emotions or psychosomatic issues or mental disorders, then you must fulfil the educational prerequisites that are required to use these titles and work with these problems. This is one of the key reasons why we have the eligibility criteria for level 4 and 5.

Short answer is No.

Long answer, the accreditation maybe there but most international organisation offering these accreditations are also private bodies. They don’t really have any statutory authority. The only exception to this, as far as I am aware of, is UK where there is a self-regulatory body called CNHC which is set up by the UK government. To become a member of CNHC your membership should be approved by a association affiliated to CNHC and hence accreditation with a UK association that is affiliated to CNHC like GHSC is of legal value.

To be true it is unfair to even compare CHCP with a standard Hypnosis and NLP training programs. There are multiple reasons for the same:

  1. The course is not just based on these two modalities, it integrates some other modalities. This eclectic approach makes the course unique.
  2. Even when we look at Hypnosis and NLP, the course has been developed not just by bringing the topics and techniques covered in clinical hypnosis workshops and NLP training programs together but by creating an integration that allows us to understand NLP techniques and concepts through the conceptual framework of Hypnosis. The integration has also enabled us to train our participants in a way that they are able to create their own hypnotic techniques which are structured yet flexible.
  3. Concepts and techniques from Cognitive therapies, metaphors and mindfulness has also contributed to making the course a lot more than what one will learn in a hypnotherapy workshop or a NLP training program or even a coaching certification program.

But because we have been asked this question very frequently, below is a comparison that may act as an indication.
