From therapy’s origins in stories told around the fire, modern psychotherapy and counselling has swelled into a behemoth, until today where it includes well over 400 different schools of thought.
In Uncommon Psychotherapy, Mark Tyrrell gets back to the basics of what it means to be human, while incorporating the latest research to help practitioners see clearly what people need to be well.
A note from Mark:
“After 20+ years of teaching therapy, I’ve finally found the time to distill down the essence of what we do at Uncommon Knowledge. It took many months and I (literally) wrote a book in the process. We wrestled with how to launch the course but in the end I decided that Uncommon Psychotherapy would reach the most practitioners as part of Uncommon Practitioners TV.”
So, as Mark says above, Uncommon Psychotherapy is now available free inside Uncommon Practitioners TV.
Testimonials from our previous delegates
"This course has helped to fill in some blanks"
Uncommon Psychotherapy has been a really enjoyable and fulfilling course. As a therapist already, this course has helped to fill in some blanks and consolidate my previous learning. It has left me feeling more confident and ready to tackle issues that I once may have avoided. Great to be able to refer back to the material in the future too as it has been broken down into easy to read chapters. Very pleased I came across this course.
"Something that I will treasure and use for the rest of my days practicing"
I can’t imagine a more useful resource to base a psychotherapy practice around. The unique combination of knowledge, research, wisdom, experience and practice examples makes it invaluable and something that I will treasure and use for the rest of my days practicing. I love the monthly Q&A, the humour and genuine willingness to help others (therapists and their clients) comes across really powerfully. Mark and Joe are clearly lovely caring people and I can’t thank you enough.
"I also learned a lot about myself."
The course was simple to follow and was explained in a clear and understandable language, including relevant examples. It provided a solid and organised structure to refer to when conducting a therapy session with a patient, which is invaluable. As a practitioner as well as a person I also learned a lot about myself, my own reactions, emotions and about all those triggers that I need to become aware of, to be a more effective therapist. Finally, there were a lot of concepts, knowledge and insights that I gladly gained from this course. It has been supremely useful and enjoyable!
"I think overall, the course is pretty comprehensive."
I found the course very informative and useful. I’ve gained new insights and approaches that I will definitely use in my practice. I think the various elements of the course provide both theoretical and practical information. I also liked the short comments that come up during the video to explain the purpose of a particular section. I think overall, the course is pretty comprehensive.
I think Mark is a very committed person and I like the way he relates to clients and how quickly he can get them into a hypnotic trance. The teaching material is excellent and I’ve always had a helpful response from Customer Service. Thank you for that, and thanks for the opportunity to learn from masters in the field.
"I loved the course and it helped me gain a much deeper understanding of my clients’ needs and, in fact, my own needs."
I loved the course and it helped me gain a much deeper understanding of my clients’ needs and, in fact, my own needs. I feel more confident seeing clients and it was just what I needed after completing my hypnotherapy training.
I find UPTV a great resource for giving me ideas and developing my skills. I like your approach and it is really helpful to see different ways of helping clients.
"It has given me better insight into what people need."
The Uncommon Psychotherapy course has given me the confidence and knowledge to help and understand my client better. It has also given me better insight into what people need as well as great techniques and how to apply them.
"This course has given me confidence and knowledge that is missing from most hypnosis courses."
As a recently qualified practitioner, I felt that although I had the nuts and bolts of how to use hypnosis to help people, I lacked the skills to deliver this help in a targeted and solution focused way. This course has given me confidence and knowledge that is missing from most hypnosis courses. There is a great analogy my old dad used to use about academic learning, “most courses can show you how to find the cubic capacity of a jam jar, but only the good ones show you how to get the bloody lid off”. Uncommon Psychotherapy taught me to remove the lid.
There are so many online courses on the ‘Net dealing with therapy, ranging from excellent to awful. From the moment I started the Uncommon Psychotherapy course, I began to feel that given your non-elitist and practical course was going to change the way I would view the world around me, both on a professional and personal level. I would recommend this course as the most important self-development online course out there. If you are frankly just confused as to your next step in developing your skills in therapy, TAKE THIS COURSE.
"The Uncommon Psychotherapy course has given me a far greater depth of understanding, and as a result, the ability to more fully embrace and utilise the concepts and techniques in my practice."
The material provided in the Uncommon Psychotherapy has been consistently high quality, and in just the right level of detail. Whilst many of the topics feel familiar from previous study and experience, the Uncommon Psychotherapy course has given me a far greater depth of understanding, and as a result, the ability to more fully embrace and utilise the concepts and techniques in my practice.
"The contents of the course are enlightening, informative, comprehensive and easy to understand."
I would recommend Uncommon Psychotherapy as the contents of the course are enlightening, informative, comprehensive and easy to understand. As a practitioner, I feel I have gained a great deal of information and material I can add to my “Therapeutic toolkit”. The many explanations for human behaviour make sense and increase understanding, which facilitates being able to empathise with clients and to be non-judgemental. In addition, I feel I have gained the confidence to be more creative.
"Provides a very useful framework to integrate your knowledge and its application."
Uncommon Psychotherapy is in the forefront of what will be more common in psychotherapy. It brings together in a very useful way new developments in related research and presents them in a way that makes them very utilizeable. Whatever your background and approach to psychotherapy, this course provides a very useful framework to integrate your knowledge and its application.
"A clear and concise course which is really user friendly!"
Uncommon Psychotherapy is a clear and concise course which is really user friendly! The explanations are very easy to follow and assimilate. It has certainly given me more confidence in my own practice. Highly recommended.
"The most important course I’ve done in personal development."
The Uncommon Psychotherapy is the most important course I’ve done in personal development because it’s given me the knowledge and big picture of how the mind and nervous system work and how problems arise and the different ways to solve them. This course is what any Coach, NLP Practitioner or Hypnotherapist or Counsellor needs in the first place. IT IS A MUST. Thank you so much! I am strongly recommending it to all my colleagues!
"Great background of helpful information about how and why people do what they do and how to help them change problematic behaviour patterns."
I’m a nutritionist and health coach helping women overcome their struggle with weight, dieting and emotional eating. The Uncommon Psychotherapy Course provides a great background of helpful information about how and why people do what they do and how to help them change problematic behaviour patterns. The course is very comprehensive and interesting – and I had a lot of fun reading the examples and stories which I often share with my clients, too.
"I am a better therapist because of it."
The Uncommon Psychotherapy course added to my already well equipped toolkit provided by Uncommon Knowledge courses. I highly recommend this course. It gives a thorough understanding of the brain and also how it can work in both a clever and dumb way in forming beliefs and patterns, allowing us to see why people do what they do even if it is destructive or not resourceful for them. The course also gave clear outlines and strategies for undertaking client therapy, addressing how to deal with many different situations and attitudes a client may bring to therapy, e.g. resistance. Great guidelines on how to find a client’s resources and how to use these resources to bring about positive change in a client. These examples are just a small snapshot of a very beneficial and comprehensive course. I am a better therapist because of it.
"Profound information that filled in some gaps of other training."
I have found the Uncommon Psychotherapy course to have some interesting tidbits and profound information that filled in some gaps of other training that I have received. It was interesting and educational as well as being presented in an easy format and convenient.
"A great opportunity to see how other people achieve results."
Most practitioners I have come across run micro businesses while only a few are involved with other practitioners and it’s a great opportunity to see how other people achieve results and to have some of the “behind the scenes” things explained. While reading about hypnosis and life coaching skills from a book is one thing, it is an entirely different thing when you have the client before you and you wonder where to from here. I appreciate it is absolutely imperative the client is always left feeling the client is in front of the expert and that the client has received some benefit from the experience and no matter what the level of expertise of the practitioner, there are always challenges. Uncommon Psychotherapy has given me some tools to handle this type of situation and I am really enjoying the experience.
"It went beyond my expectations! I learned so much!"
I am a mental health Occupational Therapist. I wanted to gain skills in psychotherapy to assist my clients. This course did not disappoint. In fact, it went beyond my expectations! I learned so much! I need to review the notes to anchor my knowledge more. It was definitely worth doing and I highly recommend it!
"The Uncommon Psychotherapy course has given my practice greater depth."
I have been an education lecturer with University College London for 15 years. My focus has been leadership in coaching and progressively I have been extending my remit. Many of the people that I work with in a coaching capacity have presented issues beyond the expected. The Uncommon Psychotherapy course has given my practice greater depth, integrated much of my thinking and importantly given me the confidence to respond to the unexpected, challenging and demanding. I started the course out of fascination but it is led to a whole new area of work for me. There is a real crisis in terms of well-being/mental health and I have found myself drawn in to developing a significant audit tool schools. The course has enabled me to develop this and I believe make a useful contribution to tackling this area. So my response to the course: delight, feeling challenged and above all else energised. Thank you.
