Become a Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapist, wherever you are in the world
Whether you want to shift to a career that is rewarding, inspiring and flexible, or you would like to expand your skillset as a psychologist or therapist-coach, our new Online Diploma will give you the accreditation and confidence to start practicing as a Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapist.
If would like a career helping people change, or feel that your therapy or coaching business has room to grow, it can be difficult to figure out which approach to invest in.
You'll have probably seen that the marketplace for hypnotherapy training is a confusing mix of grandiose claims, an incredible number of “world-famous” celebrity hypnotherapists and lots of people claiming to teach “the secrets” or to have studied with the “greatest hypnotherapist who ever lived”.
As the famous psychologist Professor Hans Eysenck stated, “Very few topics in the whole history of mankind can have given rise to so many absurdities, misunderstandings, and misconceptions”.
Over half a century later, this statement continues to ring true – perhaps even more so in an Internet-led era!
There are so many different hypnotherapy approaches and training course options - all significant financial and time-based investments.
You may be asking yourself the following important questions:
The Online Diploma is a comprehensive practitioner training that will fully equip you to practice the evidence-based Hypno-CBT® approach: an integrative model of hypnosis, CBT and mindfulness.
'Evidence-based' has recently become a commonly used term in the hypnotherapy courses marketplace - but we not vague about the evidence. We have always based our teaching upon a critical reading of contemporary research published independently in the main scientific journals of the hypnosis field. We always seek evidence that what we teach actually works and is rooted in widely-accepted psychological principles.
In our world of instant gratification, quick fixes and unmediated information, it is vital to make choices based on clinically researched information. The clinical research base provides the proof that the approach we teach is not one we have just ‘created’ – we have used evidence, psychological principles, and established and proven therapies to develop the integration Hypno-CBT®.
We believe in cutting through the pseudoscience to focus on what really works. And giving you and your clients a scientific basis for your approach - so you can both understand what works, why it works and how it works.
After completing the Online Diploma you will receive exactly the same qualification as our live classroom training: our Level 4 Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy – verified and awarded by a government regulated qualification accreditation organisation, NCFE.
This training course is also approved by The British Psychological Society Learning Centre – as appropriate CPD (continuing professional development) for registered psychologists.
As a Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapist, your approach is credible and recognised by healthcare professionals - as your learning of the fundamentals of the CBT mindset and approach will allow you to speak the same language as those in the medical and mental health field. Through this integration with CBT, you will stand out in the growing hypnotherapy market.
You can gain a legitimate qualification and strong therapeutic skillset at your own pace, without having to embark on a long-term training course.
We have carefully designed the Online Diploma to be equivalent to the classroom training. When creating this online hypnotherapy course we wanted to be confident that it would allow participants to practice safely and effectively as hypnotherapists.
The Online Diploma includes all the same high quality course materials (manuals, scripts, presentations) as the live classroom training, and audio and video captured from the live course too - designed to make you feel as if you are there in the classroom.
A unique key feature is the extensive one-to-one tutoring (15 hours) included to support you in your learning. In this way, we aim to match (or even exceed) the level of training in the classroom. This on its own is worth £900: the therapists are hand-selected who have trained in this approach, are in practice as Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapists and have taken a specific Hypno-CBT® Supervision Training.
Since 2003, we have been trained over a thousand people like you who are looking for a researched, credible approach to hypnotherapy.
From our experience with our therapists and helping them to build their practices, we have learned that it most important that a prospective hypnotherapist chooses a training course and approach that they will resonate with. This will give them not only the skills but the confidence to be successful.
If you feel our evidence-based integration with CBT is right for you, the Online Diploma will provide you with the confidence and an established skillset that will allow you to problem solve creatively and treat a wide range of client issues.
Psychiatrist and hypnotherapist
"The course was excellent overall. It covered a great deal with really valuable experiential learning. It was great to put theory I learnt years ago into practice.
I would highly recommend this course – it’s broad-based, evidence-based, confidence-building and good fun. Excellent resources are provided as well as signposting to further reading, with a manageable bite-sized choice of topics."
Chartered Psychotherapist and Psychologist
"As a Chartered Clinical Psychologist, I highly recommend this course because I know it will deeply enhance an applied psychologist's range of effective interventions across a wide variety of client issues.”
Author and hypnotherapist
“I found it a fantastic course and truly enjoyed the lectures that appeared to hold a strong position on the theories they teach - helping me understand the theories in more depth.
I would recommend this course as it is very rich, covers important topics and I truly believe it has provided me with the strongest step into becoming a therapist."
After you purchase the Online Diploma, on the start date of your intake group you will receive the following:
You will have access to over 80 hours of engaging lectures and tutorials including demonstrations and Q&A sessions.
The 3 course manuals are rich with articles, forms, scripts - they will be printed and posted to you wherever you are in the world at no extra cost.
A unique key feature of the full Online Diploma is the extensive one-to-one tutoring (15 hours) included to support you in your learning. In this way, we aim to match (or even exceed) the level of training in the classroom. This on its own is worth £900.
Access your personalised learning resources wherever you are via mobile, tablet, desktop or audio file. Choose the most convenient medium for you.
As well as the full Online Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy, we have also developed a self-led online training option. The self-led option includes the same footage and materials as the full Online Diploma, but without the 15 hours of tutoring.
The self-led version is an automated e-course that has been designed for existing therapists who wish to study this approach in order to add to their skillset. Alternatively, it is suitable for those who simply wish to study this fascinating topic but do not intend to use the training as a practitioner.
However, at any point you can upgrade your self-led course to a full practitioner training (with 15 hours tutoring and assessment).
You will receive 5 hours per Stage of one-to-one tutoring, focused on key learning objectives, exercises and coaching discussions. These are with hand-selected therapists whohave trained in this approach, are in practice as Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapists and have taken a specific Hypno-CBT® Supervision Training.
After you are assigned your personal tutor, you will have an initial session in which your tutor will discuss with you your purpose and goals, learning style, schedule of study and agree weekly(or fortnightly) tutor sessions. The following one-to-one sessions will accomplish the following:
We teach CBT techniques alongside mindfulness, relaxation and hypnosis which will enable a student to work competently with sub-clinical issues.
We do cover CBT very well for a short training. We cover all the key CBT concepts and process aims, as well as a wide range of techniques based on the main learning theories in psychology(classical conditioning, operant conditioning, social learning, information processing). Moreover, we teach more from CBT principles that a manualised approach. Thus, you learn the fundamentals of the CBT mindset and approach - and then how to be flexible and creative in designing treatment plans. (We think that a focus on CBT fundamentals is the new direction tha tCBT is headed in).
Whilst you would not have a CBT qualification itself, the approach taken and techniques used(and the reasons for using the techniques) will be recognised by healthcare professionals trained in CBT. And again, for sub-clinical and mild mental health issues, the approach will be very much endorsed if viewed by fully accredited CBT psychotherapists.
Due to tutor availability, we only accept ten full Online Diploma students once every two months.
The next intake starts on 15th January 2020.
The self-led non-practitioner option is available to purchase and start immediately - there are also limited spaces, and bookings will close for this on 31st December 2019.
We're passionate about the unique integration of hypnosis, CBT and mindfulness taught on the Diploma - and really excited that this powerful therapy model is now available for you to learn in your own home, in your own time, wherever you are in the world!

As part of our philosophy as adult education providers, we have a no-risk guarantee on all our courses: we will refund you 100% of the cost of your course if you are not satisfied.
You will have up to Module 3 to decide if you think the Online Diploma does not deliver on its teaching quality, content, or you think that becoming a Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapist would not allow you to create deep, long-lasting change in people’s lives. If you think so, we will give you all of your money back.
By the end of Module 3 you will have had the opportunity to learn from nearly 14 hours of teaching videos and demonstrations along with relevant scripts, slide presentations and materials.
You will have to send back the manuals and pendulum at your own cost, complete an exit questionnaire and then you will be refunded.
