Matthew Cahill is a full time practicing hypnotherapist in Plymouth Devon and Harley Street London, he has been in private practice for well over a decade and is totally committed to clinical excellence.
There is great excitement awaiting the first national results from the CORP research software which is compiling results from hypnotherapist involved in measuring their outcomes. The results will be published in the “Hypnotherapy Today” journal December 2016.
Matthew Cahill presented his outcomes to the United Kingdom Confederation of Hypnotherapy Organisations (UKCHO) early 2016 and since then there has been a large increase in hypnotherapists joining the research programme. Hypnotherapy training schools such as CPHT has started to add research and measuring outcomes to their core curriculum to ensure the highest standard of hypnotherapy practice.
Within a few months of its launch the Association had over one hundred practitioners measuring their outcomes and all are very keen to promote their work. “Hypnotherapists generally produce amazing work and by recording their outcomes they can finally start to publish measured outcomes and we hope to see other talking therapies following their lead” says Matthew.
Also organisations such as the National Board for Modern Psychotherapy have made it compulsory for accredited members to measure their therapeutic outcomes on each and every session, many therapists believe this can only be a good thing for talking therapy as a whole.
The research programme will cover all aspects of the therapeutic process including conditions such as Anxiety, Anger and Depression, each condition will include Age Band, Session Number, Sex, Time Taken, but will also include an overall view such as number of total session and number of clients. Naturally there will be no identification of names included in the outcomes research, as all client information is confidential.
“The software programming team have done an amazing job” says Matthew and we look to continually improve the software to keep up to date. The software already has the ability to work offline if no internet access is available and will automatically connect to your secure wifi once it recognises your usual working wifi system.
The CORP research programme will fall into the “real world research” category, this means that all angles of the therapeutic processes are measured and the outcomes are a true reflection of a typical day for the hypnotherapist. This process maybe the first of its kind for measured outcomes of hypnotherapy in the United Kingdom.
