Scholarship Programme

The UK College of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy Scholarship Programme

The UK College of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy is dedicated to serving community at all levels and is particularly committed to ensuring that good potential therapists who wish to train in evidence-based Cognitive Behavioral Hypnotherapy (Hypno-CBT®) and are on a low income or in receipt of state benefit have the opportunity to train and establish a practice.

We see good potential therapists as those who:

  • are deeply motivated to help others (and themselves),
  • have natural therapeutic ability (the ability to listen with “compassionate curiosity”, can authentically connect and form good working relationships with others),
  • and are psychologically minded (self-aware with the ability to see relationships between thoughts, feelings and actions – with the goal to learn and grow emotionally, intellectually and live a more valued life)

We want to offer such potential therapists the opportunity to train as an accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and then to set up a successful private practice that serves their community, themselves and their families.
