First and foremost, we look for students who can demonstrate empathy, compassion, integrity, excellent communication and interpersonal skills. In addition, you need to complete the HPD Portfoilio. This is a portfolio of written work which is based on the National Occupation Standards.(NOS). The HPD is an equivalent NVQ level 4 qualification and is required to become a CNHC voluntary regulated therapist. We interview all our students to ensure they will be able to produce the required work. We are able to help students who may not have studied for a long time or lack confidence in writing.

We always try to accommodate people who want to start training and wherever possible we will get you started on your training as soon as possible. Sometimes its possible to join a course that is currently underway so speak to us about your requirements.

Hypnotherapy is an art and involves both theoretical and practical based study. We believe that it is very important for a student to understand theory and to be able to use tools that work in the therapy room.

In addition to the classroom attendance, students are required to submit a portfolio of work which includes a question paper, a series of hypothetical situations for which you plan treatment and a statement of personal and professional philosophy. Our Diploma Course meets the requirements for the externally accredited NCH Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma awarded by the National Council for Hypnotherapy. This is a level 4 Vocational award.

Introduction to Hypnotherapy and using self hypnosis (Non certificated) 1 day £500

Whilst we always encourage trainees to complete our full Dip AHMT course if they wish to work as a Hypnotherapist, we sometimes have applicants who are not ready to commit to studying to the HPD level and perhaps just have a casual interest in hypnotherapy and want to learn how to do self-hypnosis. We can offer a one day introduction to the subject and teach you how to hypnotise yourself.
