Clinical hypnotherapy certification

Why listen to us?

The UK College of Hypnosis & Hypnotherapy, based in London, is the leading online hypnotherapy training provider in the UK offering you a clear pathway to professional accreditation and certification. For 20 years the College has championed an evidence-based approach to hypnotherapy training and the integration of hypnosis with CBT.

Our practitioner training, the Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy, is based on the extensive experimental and clinical research into hypnosis and hypnotherapy

This science-based approach is one reason the Diploma is approved by the British Psychological Society as CPD for registered psychologists. (It is therefore an excellent hypnotherapy training for psychologists).

The qualification is externally awarded by the government-regulated awarding body NCFE-CACHE (we don't print our own certificates), and is accredited (certified) by no less than 10 professional organisations.

In 2019, we worked with Great Ormond Street Hospital, a NHS Foundation Trust and one of the world's leading children's hospitals, and delivered a special training in the Hypno-CBT® approach to their team of child psychologists in the Psychological Services Department of Great Ormond Street Hospital.

What is Hypno-CBT®?

Hypno-CBT® is a unique “hypnotic-psychotherapy” which integrates hypnosis, cognitive behavioural therapy and mindfulness (dehypnosis).
Substantial research now shows that adding hypnosis can enhance CBT – improving outcomes for 70% compared to CBT alone.*

We endorse a modern, research informed approach to hypnosis. (Hint: we don't talk about hypnosis as trance!)

We also integrate wisdom and practices from the East: meditation, mindfulness and applied philosophy.
Sometimes we call it “an integration of the ancient (mindfulness), the magical (hypnosis) and the scientific (CBT)”!

This non-trance approach to hypnosis, woven with CBT and mindfulness, gives you enormous skill and flexibility as a therapist in creating highly tailored treatment programmes for patients and clients.

What does “evidence-based” mean?

This means what we teach is based on research into the nature of hypnosis, what can be treated with hypnotherapy, what other psychotherapies are effective and is rooted in widely-accepted psychological principles.

Few people know that hypnosis is a serious research topic in psychology, with three dedicated academic journals and hypnosis research labs in the most famous universities in the world – including Harvard, Stanford, Berkley and UCL

In our courses we look at both experimental research – that's research into how hypnosis works – and also clinical research – or what hypnosis can be used for.

Although it is a very scientific approach, we make it simple and understandable (just as you would for clients).

Gain an additional qualification in CBT (Cert. I-CBT)

Our Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy (CBH) contains a substantial amount of high quality theory, principles and skills from cognitive behavioural approaches. Essentially you are trained in CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) as well as hypnotherapy when you take our Diploma in Hypno-CBT®.
Many top professionals do not consider that you can offer hypnosis without being able to work effectively without hypnosis – i.e. hypnosis is an ADJUNCT to a psychotherapy not really a psychotherapy in it's own right. Indeed once you move beyond basic simple suggestions for symptom improvement you have to have a therapeutic model (framework) within which to be thinking about and delivering therapy effectively.

For this reason we teach you CBT theory, principles and methods in our training – AND how to add modern hypnosis to that for even better results.

To recognise the depth of CBT knowledge and training you will acquire we also award a Certificate in Integrative CBT (Cert I-CBT) when you qualify with us, verified by a leading CBT Trainer and Supervisor. Read more here

For over 20 years, we have helped people like you to become successful Hypno-CBT® Therapists

Dr Jonathan Pointer, chartered psychologist, certified hypnotherapist

“As a Chartered Clinical Psychologist, I highly recommend this course, because I know it will deeply enhance applied psychologists range of effective interventions across a wide variety of client issues.

It is also important to hold in mind that this course is so well crafted, that students with no prior knowledge of psychology and/or therapy, can take this course with the confidence that they will be given all the information that is required to become, with practice, competent cognitive-behavioural hypnotherapists.”

– Dr Jonathan Pointer, Chartered Clinical Psychologist

Harriet Curry, certified Hypno-CBT® therapist

“When I wanted a career change, I researched a lot of hypnotherapy practitioner courses and the College highlighted itself as being the best, and did not disappoint.

I was floored at how rich the content was, and how academically rigorous it was. The course is challenging, but that is exactly what I wanted. The quality of the teaching is phenomenal.

The most genuine organisation I've been witness to in a long time.”

– Harriet Curry, Hypno-CBT® Therapist

Chris People - certified hypnotherapist

“The UK College is a centre of excellence for evidence-based therapy. I have trained with the college for a number of years, and every course offered, and every member of their teaching staff are first class.

Somehow the College manages to balance discussion of current scientific and clinical issues and findings, with practical, experiential learning, and personal reflection and growth. I cannot rate them highly enough.

Classroom Training vs Live Stream Webcast vs Online Training

Prior to the pandemic we offered nearly all our training through intensive 7-day classroom training. In November 2019, just before the pandemic, we launched our Online Diploma format which offers online hypnotherapy certification – and is fully equivalent to the live classroom format in terms of content, curriculum, learning outcomes, assessment and the final qualification.
During the pandemic we not only developed the Online Diploma format so that people could learn hypnotherapy online and become a certified hypnotherapist – we also started to run our Diploma via Live Stream Webcast (using Zoom). The Live Stream Webcast Diploma (via Zoom) now replaces the classroom training – with higher student satisfaction ratings and assessment outcomes!

However our most popular format is the Online Diploma – a genuine “Flipped Classroom” Educational Design model – where instead of sitting in lectures you watch lectures in your own time and spend valuable time with your tutor and fellow students in discussions, practical exercises and Q&A sessions.

Finally of course everyone now learns how to do therapy (and hypnotherapy) online. In countless research studies it is now shown, without doubt, that therapy delivered online is just as effective, in some studies more effective, than therapy delivered live in person.
So to become a hypnotherapist we offer our curriculum through Live Stream Webcast, Online (Pre-recorded lectures supported by personal tutoring) and Self-Led (no tutor support). The timing, format and fees vary so take time to understand the formats and the hypnotherapy training cost involved.
Both Live Stream Webcast and the Online Diplomas are supported by live online practise sessions, which are led by a trained supervisor-tutor, run four times a week at various time slots, and are free for 12 months.
Our aim through all of this is to offer the best hypnotherapy training that is on offer anywhere in the world – to anyone in the world, wherever you may be.
So you can get trained in the highest quality training in your own home – whether you live in London, or New Zealand, the Outer Hebrides or Malta!
