How to refer a pupil

If you are a school and would like to refer a pupil for HISP, please contact Caroline Dyson (or your nearest HISP Practitioner) who will send you the referral forms and provide you with more details.

What’s involved?

Once a pupil has been referred, the HISP Practitioner will arrange an initial assessment session where they will come into school and speak with staff (and parents if appropriate) before conducting a session with the pupil. Assuming they feel the child is suitable after this session, the intervention will then run for approximately 6 weeks, with a 30-45 minute session conducted within school every week. HISP Practitioners will bring all necessary equipment so all the school need to provide is a quiet and private space where the session will not be disturbed. As part of the programme, the pupil will be given a hypnotherapy CD to support their sessions which they will be asked to listen to at school/home. At the end of the intervention, a report will be submitted to school which will include evaluation data and impact measures.
