New Zealand School of Professional Hypnotherapy - News and Updates

COVID-19 Updates

12th May

At Alert Level 2 NZSPH will be able to conduct our training workshops with these measures in place:

Social Distancing

Students and trainers must stay 1 metre away from each other at all times. This may mean that some elements involving touch cannot be demonstrated and may need to simply be described.

If you are sick

Anyone who is sick is required to stay at home. IF you have any Covid-19 symptoms you must not attend the course. Students will be able to make up any missed modules as usual. Anyone who shows symptoms during the weekend must leave immediately, and will also be able to attend at a later date.

Hand Hygiene and Cleaning

Hand sanitiser is to be provided by the school and students asked to use it on entry.

Any tables and chairs will be disinfected by the venue. We will also provide antibacterial wipes to disinfect tables at morning tea and lunch.

Attendance Register

All students must sign the attendance register on entry and also include their phone number to meet the criteria for contact tracing.

At risk people

If you are in the at-risk category (including over-70, underlying health conditions, immuno-compromised) it is up to your own discretion whether you participate in the face to face classes at this stage. Modules will be able to be made up later as usual.

Morning and afternoon tea

To minimise contact, this will not be provided as usual, but students are welcome to bring their own.

Our terms and conditions and guarantee remain unaffected, ie if any student misses a training day or weekend then they are welcome to attend it again as many times as they wish within the next 4 years (extended from 3 years), and at any location.

18th April

The situation around COVID-19 and its potential impact on our training courses is constantly evolving.

Please read the information about how we plan the courses will operate under each Alert Level.

This is up to date as of 18th April based on the detailed new information released by the government on 16th April. This may change if/when the government changes their guidance on Alert Levels and as we move to different levels.

We are still taking enrolments and have a number of online and written resources available when you enrol, plus new online masterclasses coming in the next few weeks.

Our guarantee remains unaffected by this situation and you can read this here.

Alert Level 1

  • Face-to-face courses go ahead as planned
  • Students who are in self-isolation or feeling unwell stay at home
  • Physical distancing in the classroom
  • Increased hygiene practices (hand washing, venue cleaning etc)

Alert Level 2

  • Face-to-face courses go ahead as planned
  • Students who are in self-isolation, feeling unwell or over 70 stay at home
  • Physical distancing in the classroom
  • Increased hygiene practices (hand washing, venue cleaning etc)
  • Students who travel from outside the area to attend may choose not to travel

Alert Level 3

  • Face-to-face courses postponed based on requirements to:
    • Stay home and restrict contact with others
    • Restrict travel to essential personal movement only
    • Businesses cannot offer services involving close personal/physical contact
  • Additional online resources available.

Alert Level 4

  • Face-to-face courses postponed due to full lockdown being in place
  • Additional online resources put in place in the interim

A few notes

Courses may still have to be postponed at Alert Levels 1-3 if for example:

A high number of students postpone and it leaves us with unviable numbers. Trainer(s) sick or a venue is closed and we can’t find a replacement.

As this is a rapidly changing situation there may be other scenarios which we haven’t considered. We will address these as they arise and communicate promptly with you.

A reminder of our guarantee and commitment to our students

Our terms and conditions and guarantee remain unaffected, ie if any student misses a training day or weekend then they are welcome to attend it again as many times as they wish within the next 4 years (extended from 3 years), and at any location.

If any face-to-face courses cannot take place then they will be postponed to later dates (or students transferred to later existing courses). We will NOT be replacing the in person element of the course with online training and 19 days in person training will still be required and delivered, but if the in-person courses are put on hiatus we are looking at providing additional online support and resources to continue students’ learning and development in the meantime.

We will also be taking advice from the UK Academy of Therapeutic Arts & Sciences and the National Council for Hypnotherapy (who we are associated with) so we are consistent with their approach and policies.

Any student at any point is able to choose not to attend if they prefer, and the option to postpone to later course dates in line with our guarantee still applies.

We are committed to continuing to deliver the training in the long-term as we have done for the last 12 years.  We appreciate your patience and  flexibility during any short term disruption :-)
