Letter from Dr. Joe E. Keaney, Director of the ICHP

Joe-E-KeneyAs Director of the Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the ICHP and I wish you every success on your journey to becoming a professional Hypnotherapist-Psychotherapist.

In an age when world technological knowledge is doubling every twenty four months and the pace of living is becoming ever more overwhelming causing stress induced symptomology in over 30% of the general population, necessitating psychological support that is effective and brief.

This programme is designed to equip you, the student, with the necessary expertise to assist clients in this caring and helping profession.

It was W.B. Yeats that wrote “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire”. The ICHP programme in Hypno-psychotherapy is one of the most exciting and fascinating careers available in modern society. All facets of human behaviour involves the use of the mind and the subconscious in every sphere of contemporary life.

Modern scientific Hypnotherapy-Psychotherapy has a history of some 250 years although its pre-scientific origins date back some 5000 years. Hypnotherapy is today experiencing an unprecedented boom in growth and expansion and in Ireland, Europe and globally.

I know you will find the course both stimulating and rewarding as there is great emphasis on personal self-development combined with Supervision. As you progress through the four levels of the ICHP Programme you will be exposed to a wide variety of modular Tutors with a vast repertoire of approaches and styles to prepare you to consult with an array of mental health symptoms.

Finally, the programme is designed to be taught by professionals in the field and combine clinical based practice with a theoretical underpinning and promote a good working relationship between tutors, students, supervisors and work placement personnel. This close relationship is an inherent part of the ICHP culture and prepares our graduates for a professional career in the field of Hypnotherapy-Psychotherapy.

I wish you every success in your studies with the Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy.
