Where: Live online via Zoom

We are delighted to invite you to Avy Joseph, CCBT Director: Developing Self Talk Skills with Your Client in Therapy one day NCPS/HS Quality Checked workshop, held on Saturday 1st June 2024.

Registration for this course will close on Friday 24th May at 5.00pm, however please note that spaces are allocated on a first come, first served basis so please do book early to avoid disappointment.

Self Talk is our most powerful psychological tool. It leads to the development of our beliefs, habits and attitudes that are in turn stored in our sub-conscious mind. Many of them can be progressive but a great number are unhelpful and at the heart of many emotional problems. By understanding how thoughts affect behaviour and how we develop our attitudes and beliefs, we unlearn them and replace them with their more helpful counterparts. These self talk skills can be learned and used in counselling and hypnotherapy. Understanding how beliefs and self-images are created and maintained provides us with the solution for change. You will learn not only how you can build on your personal development but also how to help clients to adapt to life’s changes in a positive way. This approach utilises the functions of the mind in developing self-images and beliefs. It enables you and your clients to move forward using techniques and tools that create a positive frame of mind, allowing your therapy to progress more effectively. Skills will be demonstrated with role plays and group work.

You will learn:

  • How we act and live in accordance with our beliefs
  • How and why our perception, the truth as we see it, is flawed
  • How our mind works
  • The importance of goals for change
  • How habits and attitudes impact our progress
  • Balance between Self Talk and Self Image
  • Why self talk is the one of the main tools for our development and how to use it
  • How our comfort zones and self-images work together
  • How to effect change and create balance
  • Self Talk skills
  • Accountability and Momentum for change

About the tutor

Avy Joseph MSc, BSc
CBT/REBT Therapist, Senior Lecturer, Author and Director at CCBT
Avy Joseph is an experienced Cognitive Behaviour Therapist and Director of the College of Cognitive Behavioural Therapies. He is a registered and accredited therapist with the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) and is a Fellow of the National Hypnotherapy Society.

Avy believes that an action oriented and compassionate approach to emotional problems, personal development and growth is important when working with clients. A person’s potential is often blocked by old patterns of thinking and behaviours which are learned either in childhood; or in later life in response to negative experiences and suffering, but usually maintained with or without awareness, in the present. Such beliefs and patterns are at the heart of emotions like anxiety, depression, guilt, hurt, jealousy, anger, embarrassment and envy as well as unhelpful behaviours, thoughts and symptoms.

Avy began working as a counsellor in 1992, developing and running many workshops on Relationship Problems, Phobias, Hypnosis in Dentistry, Panic Disorder, Goal Achievement to name but a few. It was when lecturing both nationally and internationally that his interest in evidence based cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) grew. In 2001 he gained an MSc in Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT) from Goldsmiths College, University of London (one of the main schools of cognitive and behavioural therapy).

He is the lead author for Confidence and Success with CBT and Visual CBT. Other published works include ‘Cognitive Behavioural Therapy – your route out of perfectionism, self sabotage and other every day habits’.
