PESR Course - UK

PESR Practitioner Course

The PESR - performance enhancement stress reduction course, is one of the most unique, performance development, certified stress reduction hypnotherapy courses available in the world. The six day course makes up a complete programme of learning, leading to a Practitioner Certificate in Performance Enhancement & Stress Reduction (PESRCert). Successful completion of this 6 day course provides you with enough training which will allow you to begin practising as a Performance Enhancement & Stress Reduction (PESR) Practitioner. You will be eligible to use the PESRCert letters after your name and embark on an independent career in performance enhancement and stress management. Graduates are also eligible to apply their learning from this course and continue with further study of mind management or hypnopsychotherapy.

The Performance Enhancement & Stress Reduction (PESR) Practitioner course teaches individuals how to take control of and improve personal performance and well-being, in themselves and in others. This course appeals to three types of individuals: those interested in their own self development; those wanting to establish a lucrative career as a PESR practitioner; and those individuals who currently work to improve the performance and well-being of others, such as those who provide stress management coach training, personal trainers, life coaches, mentors, clinical and non-clinical therapists, holistic practitioners, educators, etc.

Many people have limited or no knowledge and understanding of performance based mind management. The stress reduction and performance enhancement practitioner course is focused on teaching how to develop and maintain performance based thinking, through effective mind management techniques that can be put into practice by anyone. Many people suffer from limiting beliefs, unhelpful thinking patterns and problem based mental focusing, which restricts and prevents future success and can lead to psychological disturbance, like anxiety and depression. Through tried and tested, research backed therapeutic mind management techniques, these obstacles to enhanced performance can be overcome, leading an individual to improve their rate of success, to be able to increase and achieve higher potential, to be more confident and in control, to reduce psychological disturbance and generally experience a greater feeling of physical and mental well-being.

The ICCHP has been teaching modern, dynamic mind body therapeutic courses for many years and has a wealth of knowledge and experience, training thousands of individuals, from all walks of life, to transform and enhance their own lives and the lives of others. Learning to be a Performance Enhancement & Stress Reduction (PESR) Practitioner will change your life and those you choose to help. On this course you will learn how to most effectively integrate the best mind management concepts and techniques used in the practice of mindfulness, psychotherapy, neuro linguistic programming, performance coaching and mind body therapeutics.

The integrated teaching of mind management, performance enhancement and stress reduction provides a broad based and comprehensive approach to personal development. Stress and anxiety hinder effective performance, therefore it is critical for one to learn how to effectively manage stress and anxiety, in order to improve well-being and achieve desired levels of performance. No other performance enhancement or stress reduction course offers such a broad based integrative mind management approach to performance enhancement and stress reduction. The ICCHP designed this course to be unique, taking into account a wealth of knowledge and experience, along with feedback provided from thousands of students over many years. We guarantee that you won't find a similar performance enhancement or stress management practitioner course anywhere.

The course is taught over 6 classroom days, during which students are presented with demonstrations and the practice of techniques and their application. Backing up this classroom practice is an on-line course component, which students have a lifetime access to, it includes all classroom based notes and video demonstrations, theoretical background notes and additional learning and practice resources, along with interactive discussion and support forums.
