“Is hypnotherapy actually a viable career option?”
We know what it's like to feel confused about the many different claims, approaches and training methods within the hypnotherapy course marketplace.
It's easy to wonder:
Is hypnosis actually legitimate?
Is it credible enough to make a successful career out of?
How do I know which course will be a worthwhile investment?
Why listen to us?
For nearly 20 years we have championed an evidence-based approach to hypnotherapy training.
This means that our practitioner Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy is solely based on experimental and clinical research.
Our science-based approach is the reason that the Diploma is recognised by the British Psychological Society as CPD for registered psychologists.
As an adult education provider, the qualification is externally awarded by the government-regulated awarding body NCFE-CACHE (we don't print our own certificates). It is accredited by 8 professional organisations.
And in 2019, we were approached by one of the world's leading children's hospitals and NHS Foundation Trust, Great Ormond Street, to deliver a special in-house training in our Hypno-CBT® approach to their team of child psychologists.
Are you in Australia?
This qualification is available to those living in Australia and is approved by the Australian Society of Clinical Hypnotherapists (ASCP), one of the leading hypnotherapy registers.
This means that you can train with us, join professional organisations in the UK and Australia, and practice hypnotherapy both online and in-person.
What is Hypno-CBT®?
Hypno-CBT® is a unique model integrating hypnosis, cognitive behavioural therapy and mindfulness.
We endorse a modern approach to hypnosis. (Hint: we do not see hypnosis as trance!)
We 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 gives you enormous skill and flexibility as a therapist in the way you integrate hypnosis with other techniques.
What does “evidence-based” mean?
This means we always seek research evidence that what we teach actually works and is rooted in widely-accepted psychological principles.
Hypnosis is a serious research topic in psychology.
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).
Designed for novices and experienced therapists
Want to switch career?
The Diploma is designed to provide those new to therapy with the clinical skills, knowledge and a highly accredited qualification that will enable them to set up in practice as a professional hypnotherapist.
Or build your skillset?
The Diploma is also popular with psychologists, psychotherapists, psychiatrists and coaches looking to expand their skillset and business. The unique Hypno-CBT® model helps your clients make deeper and more long-lasting change.
What the Diploma training is like
For over 20 years, we have helped people like you to become successful Hypno-CBT® Therapists
“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
“When I wanted a career change, I researched a lot of hypnotherapy practitioner courses and UKCHH 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
“UKCHH 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 UKCHH 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.
