All our students, whether trainee or graduate, once they have completed a minimum of FIVE DAYS training with us, will qualify for a LIFETIME DISCOUNT of 15%. We also offer discounts, from time to time, to members of major hypnotherapy organisations.
Group Bookings of 3 or more qualify for additional discounts – please contact us for details.
A high percentage of our students are now working as a hypnotherapist/psychotherapist, either full or part time. Although income varies considerably, most therapists charge between £50 and £100 per hour. Advice on practice management, including the setting up of your own business, will be given in the course.
How do I qualify?
In accordance with National Occupational Standard guidelines, our course runs for eight weekends, giving you 120 hours of supervised practice and theoretical teaching. In addition, you are expected to study for at least 450 hours, which means that most students spend around 7 hours per week on research, practise and homework. You can find a suggested reading list on our website.
We do NOT set an exam, we set appropriate homework each month, based on that weekends training, the course manual, relevant reading and sometimes a little research. In addition, you will begin the process of compiling a PORTFOLIO for submission to the NCH/NCFE in order to gain for externally validated award.
You will receive guidance and help with preparing your portfolio for submission. For more information about the HPD please click here.
Can anyone train to be a hypnotherapist/psychotherapist?
There are NO criteria for studying and qualifying in hypnotherapy. We do not insist on a previous qualification in psychology, for example, although many psychologists have studied with us. We may invite you for a personal interview. HOWEVER, you are very welcome to interview us, whatever your background!
Simply call us on 01246 416544 and we will arrange a mutually convenient time. You are also welcome to call in to any of our training courses, with prior arrangement with the trainers, to watch us at work and meet our students.
We will ask you for two references and a short CV. You are also asked to provide medical/psychological information. This is, of course, totally confidential.
The most important qualities for a career in hypnotherapy and psychotherapy are bags of empathy and a genuine interest in people. Those students attending the training purely for self-development are always welcome to attend the course without submission of a portfolio, or even any homework. In this case you will be issued with a certificate of course completion.
Incidentally, anyone who is unable to complete the homework, or the HPD, for other reasons (whether personal or otherwise) is welcome to forward their homework at a later date for certification. You do NOT need to complete your portfolio by the end of the course, although many students choose to do this!
As well as the Diploma course and CPDs, we also offer Fast Track courses for suitably qualified delegates.
