Online Hypnotherapy Course: Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy

Home / Online Hypnotherapy Course: Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy

Become an accredited, effective hypnotherapist at your own pace

Are you looking for a new career that is more in line with your life values?

Or looking for a way to expand your existing practice and create deeper client change?

The Online Diploma is a full practitioner qualification that will give you the accreditation and skillset to start practicing as a Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapist – and the freedom to train entirely at your own pace.

Designed to be equivalent to the live “classroom” hypnotherapy training test

As experienced adult education providers, when creating this online training programme we wanted to be confident that those taking the online hypnotherapy diploma are just as skilled, knowledgeable and competent as those who have taken the classroom training – are able to practice safely and effectively as hypnotherapists.

Mark Davis explains the key features of the Online Diploma format in this 8 minute video.

I was working full time and I had to keep my job. If the College didn’t offer an online format of the Diploma, I wouldn’t have done this – and I’m so grateful that I was able to do this. It’s something that has changed my life.”

This actually provides MORE personal tutor one-to-one contact time than in the actual classroom training.

All online hypnotherapy course tutors are in practice as registered Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapists, they have all taken the Diploma training and received the qualification.

They’ve been personally selected by Mark R. Davis, the College Principal and have taken our special Hypno-CBT® Supervision Training.

    The online platform is very well organised and my regular tutorials online have been amazing as my course tutor is really supportive. The course involves being paired up with a professional in the field of hypnotherapy and this has been a great asset in aiding my learning. The course is well structured and demanding and so far I feel like I am taking massive strides in my knowledge and proficiency as a future Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapist.
