Hypnotherapy Diploma Course

Take the practical hypnotherapy course

Our hypnotherapy course is a practitioner diploma and it is packed full of information and techniques. It is a very practical course. Hypnotherapy is a practical, no-nonsense therapy and we believe that any hypnotherapy course outline should mirror what happens during therapy. Which means there is very little theory work; we leave that to our 600-page manual.

The course itself concentrates on getting you to think like a hypnotherapist. It shows you how to analyse, question and investigate the issues a client might present. It shows you how to devise a treatment plan that will be effective and achievable for the client and importantly, how to deliver that treatment plan in a hypnotic way. These physical techniques are difficult, if not impossible, to learn from books and from writing essays (of which there are none on our course).

With all these skills when you finish our hypnotherapy course you will feel confident that you can help your future clients and, therefore, be successful as a hypnotherapist. You will have already worked with clients during the course, and this will help to build your confidence so that when you finish you are ready to start straight away. We also have an active support group and forum for past students to share and receive their collective knowledge. We also hold regular supervisions sessions and generally have a social get-together for students and practitioners to network.
