An Introduction to The NCCH Team.
Hello I'm Amanda Joy The Director of Studies at The Northern College of Clinical Hypnotherapy I teach in our Newcastle centre and live online.
In my private practise I guide clients in developing strategies to ensure long-term term solutions for overcoming autoimmune disorders, addiction, abuse, trauma and PTSD.
Things have really developed at the NCCH so I thought I would give you an update.
I begin teaching in January 2020, I was so blessed to have a small group of amazing students, all who now have very busy successful practices. In March of 2020 I opened our supervision programme. This programme aims to support students whist they are training with us and after graduation too. It is also open to all therapists as our supervisors are all accredited and we are a CPD accredited centre of learning.
Whist training with us students receive an hour of one to one support each month. This may include, feedback on homework or progress, advice on setting up a hypnotherapy business, help with clients, advice on tools or techniques, guidance on referrals to other therapists or medical professionals, therapy and discussion on personal growth and development too.
Students are invited to attend 1 hour of one to one supervision each month but while training with us, can have as many sessions as they need. We aim to support our students in their development. Help them to review their client work so that they can deliver the best possible service to clients in a safe, ethical way.
We also run peer supervision and educational talks every month during term time. This is all free, and all are welcome to join.
We believe that supervision motivates and encourages therapists to reflect on and evaluate their case work, their approaches to clients, and their own developmental process as therapists.
The NCCH supports a goal orientated, solution focused approach to supervision. Our peer supervision is also just a wonderful way to network too.
I've a fantastic team of amazing therapists who have joined me in training people to become outstanding, world class Clinical Hypnotherapists.
We have Hypnosis training in Plymouth, Leicester, The Isle of Man, Harrogate, Teesside, Newcastle and Live Online.
Patti is based in Harrogate in Yorkshire and loves how Hypnotherapy can support clients to feel and act differently, enjoy their lives more and be more confident, happier and have more meaningful relationships with others. She specialises in anxiety and stress management and she would say that over 85 percent of her private practice clients come for support to help with anxiety or poor mental health.
Lisa is a Live Online Tutor based in Teesside and has a background in sports rehabilitation, mindset transformation, with both adults and children. She supports families, providing essential services as well as CPD for therapists.
Ian Mcclumpha is our Leister based Tutor, an EMMETT and shiatsu practitioner as well as practising other physical therapies he recognises and truly appreciates the mind-body connection.
For Ian Clinical Hypnotherapy is the missing piece of the jigsaw. He says "the mind controls everything we do, our behaviour, fears, phobias, habits, addictions and of course, the pressure of modern life is all reflected in our physical body".
Ian specialises in the use of the latest Clinical Virtual Reality therapy. This immersion in the virtual world is fantastic for relaxation or addressing fears and phobias, and a powerful addition to a hypnotherapeutic intervention.
Ali Marie Duff is our Isle of Man Based Tutor a Mental Health nurse and a fully qualified clinical hypnotherapist with over thirty years experience working within the mental health field.

Sarah Reddan is our Live Online Plymouth based Tutor. Sarah is trained in various talking and body therapies and the host of 'Conversations with Sarah', a weekly wellness podcast sharing knowledge, stories of hope, inspiration, and awareness of therapies that support wellness & self-care.
Sarah loves that hypnotherapy "flips the switch on ways of thinking we may not have even realised we have, it supports us in creating the changes we want in life". Sarah has benefited from Hypnotherapy herself as well as supporting her clients to overcome phobias, support a self-care journey and create a mindset that supports building an aligned business.
She believes that "we all have untapped possibility that Hypnotherapy can support us in accessing and excelling in whatever we choose to do".
