Hypnotherapy Training: The Evidence-Based Approach
This modern, integrative approach to hypnotherapy, CBT and mindfulness (Hypno-CBT®) will put you in a strong position to start a new career, or complement your existing therapy practice. Our hypnotherapy training programme is designed for people new to therapy, those switching careers and also for experienced therapists and coaches wishing to add hypnosis, mindfulness and CBT to their current therapy practice. We are renowned for taking a rigorous and thorough approach to our teaching materials and content – and have championed an “evidence-based” approach for over 14 years.

BPS Approved Courses: Our hypnotherapy training courses (Certificate and Diploma) are the only hypnotherapy training programmes approved by The British Psychological Society Learning Centre. (but you don’t need a qualification in psychology to take our courses!)

Manuals, online resources and post course support
Each course has a 300 page manual and an online-resources section with powerpoints, videos of each day, forms, scripts, articles and much more. Post course support is available through online groups, social events, CPD and business mentoring.

“Really enjoyed the entire course. I have learned so much and that has raised my confidence levels to move on. I felt the practical exercises were really exciting and useful, as was the feedback. The best course I have attended on hypnotherapy. Thank you Mark, Lorna and Fabienne.”

Gary Redding, Chief Executive at Youth Action Diversity Trust.

“An excellent course confirming that I will pursue this area of practice.  I thoroughly enjoyed the week, appreciating the balance of theory and practice. Excellent teaching style, building positive learning experience each day.”
