Clinical Excellence

The one thing our delegates have in common is a desire to gain a proper understanding of the use of hypnosis in a clinical and psychotherapeutic setting. We continue to see clients on a regular basis, as we believe this is essential if we are to continue with our high clinical standards. We are able to discuss clinical case studies and believe this is essential if you are to gain the skills and confidence to practice independently.

Our comprehensive training programme comprises of 16 days face-to-face training and includes practical demonstrations and extensive opportunity to practice what is being taught. We have our own suite of training rooms so that all delegates have the opportunity to apply the skills of clinical hypnotherapy in small group setting of 3-4 delegates. This allows for plenty of time for feedback and reflection and provides an optimal learning experience. We know this is vitally important if our students are to develop the skills and confidence to become successful therapists. Many training organisations have in excess of 20 delegates practising in a single room! We do not do this.

We provide our students with the highest standards of hypnotherapy training. We can say this confidently as we have superb feedback from our delegates. We have testimonials and video testimonials on the website along with written testimonials on file at our head office. Along with clinical hypnotherapy training we also provide business and marketing training as part of our Hypnotherapy Training Course.

We also invite past students who have made the successful transition into full time practice to come along and give you the benefit of their experience. Building a successful hypnotherapy practice depends on developing a referral base from satisfied clients and other professionals. It also requires a professional web presence. This can be done very cost effectively and we also advise on this vital aspect of the business.

Our training programme is externally accredited by the leading accrediting bodies operating in the UK. These include The National Hypnotherapy Society. The General Hypnotherapy Standards Council, The General Hypnotherapy Register, Graduates of this course will be eligible to register with the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). For more information see www.cnhc.org.uk

The C.N.H.C. was set up with government support to protect the public by providing a UK voluntary register of complementary therapists. The CNHC register has been approved as an Accredited Voluntary Register by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care. Very few Hypnotherapy Training courses meet these standards. If you would like to discuss any of these training standards please contact us at any time.

Our professional hypnotherapy training also allows you apply for membership of various voluntary professional registers, councils, societies and regulatory bodies. The quality of training that a student receives will be the single most important factor in predicting their success with clients and therefore their ability to build a financially stable practice. All our training meets the Hypnotherapy Regulatory Forum training standards and you can view a copy here.

  • Our Training Venue

    We have our own training rooms based here in central England. This allows us to keep our prices extremely competitive as we do not have to pay for expensive city centre hotels. If you decide to stay locally there is a wide selection of accommodation available. Superb farmhouse bed and breakfast accommodation and large chain hotels. We even have a Travelodge less then 100 meters from our training rooms. There are two main line stations in the town with direct access to London, Manchester and Nottingham. Some training providers like to give the impression of university accreditation by emphasising the training is held in a university. You should check this very thoroughly as this usually means they only hired a room in the building and have no direct links with the university at all.
