“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 a legitimate therapy? Does it really work?
Is it viable to have a career as a full time hypnotherapist?
How do I know which course will be a worthwhile investment?
Why listen to us?
For 20 years we have gone against the grain of most training schools by championing an evidence-based approach to hypnotherapy training.
This means that our practitioner Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy is strongly based on experimental and clinical research.
This strong science-based approach to all our training programme is the reason why the Diploma is recognised by the British Psychological Society as CPD for registered psychologists. And why psychologists love our course.
As an adult education provider, the qualification is externally certified by the government-regulated awarding body NCFE-CACHE (we don't print our own certificates). So your professional certification is accepted by 8 major professional organisations around the world.
In 2019, we were approached by one of the world's leading children's hospitals, Great Ormond Street Hospitcal, to deliver a special in-house training in our Hypno-CBT® approach to their team of child psychologists.
Modern, science-based hypnotherapy for the USA!
This qualification is available to those living in the USA and is accepted for professional membership by the ICBCH, one of the leading hypnotherapy registers in the States.
This means that you can train with us, join professional organisations in the UK and the US, obtain professional indemnity insurance and practice hypnotherapy in your state.
Note: there are state by state regulations on what you can call yourself – either a hypnotherapist or hypnotist. Please review this webpage for more information: Hypnosis and the Law Around the World
The Diploma training has always had a strong international reputation and we are excited to now be able to offer this to those in the United States.
Our Hypno-CBT® model is very different from the majority of hypnotherapy models in the US.
If you are interested in the possibilities of hypnosis but are skeptical about the claims and hype around hypnosis – then you will love this scientific approach.
We debunk many of the myths and hype around hypnosis.
It's not about trance, you can't access repressed memories in the unconscious – and definitely not past lives!
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.
There have been special hypnosis research labs at Harvard, Stanford and Berkeley universities. Over 15,000 research articles have been published on hypnosis and hypnotherapy. Hypnosis is now a cutting edge topic in cognitive neuroscience.
Seriously consider if you should take a training that is NOT up to date with the research.
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.
So what does the research say about hypnosis? Read this myth busting article: Towards an Evidence-Based Hypnosis!]
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
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.
