Become a hypnotherapist!

Would you like to run your own business helping others to overcome doubts, distress and anxieties so they can live their lives more fully?

Many people dream of becoming a professional therapist - being able to utilise their natural compassion and insight to help others become more at ease, more resilient and live a more meaningful life.

At The UK College of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy our passion is training others to become effective, successful therapists.

We believe in taking an "evidence-based approach" - that means that our students in trained in methods that have proven to work in clinical research trials - as opposed to being trained in old antiquated methods and ideas with little or no research evidence behind them.

This means our students leave feeling confident that they are using the most up to date and effective ways of helping others.

Our main hypnotherapy training is a 21 day Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy that is split into three 7 day sections - Stage 1 (Certificate), Stage 2 (Advanced Certificate) and Stage 3 (Diploma).

Certificate Course (7 days)

This week long training provides a solid foundation in hypnosis and hypnotherapy. Students are trained in the "cognitive-behavioural" model of hypnosis. What this means is that hypnosis is somewhat demystified from being a "magic sort of trance" and understood as being a powerful way of focusing attention, imagination and expectation upon a "hypnotic idea".

This makes hypnosis (and self-hypnosis) much more accessible and able to be applied in many different ways (eyes open or closed, relaxed or alert - it doesn't matter!)

This training is suitable for many different people
- those wanting to start a hypnotherapy practice
- people who want to add "hypnotherapy" to a current practise
- nurses, GPs and medical professionals
- people interested in hypnosis and the power of the mind
- business coaches, acting, performance and sports coaches
- for personal development and empowerment
- yoga teachers, meditation instructors and others who want to understand how to use the power of suggestion in their instructions to others.

Hypnotherapy Training
- Diploma in Hypno-CBT® (3 weeks)

This three week training (which includes the Certificate Course) is designed to give students the most thorough grounding hypnosis and hypnotherapy through which they can start and grow their practise and further understanding of hypnosis.

The Diploma is in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy (Hypno-CBT®) is externally accredited by The Northern College of Further Education (NCFE) - and is equivalent to NVQ level 4.

Students learn the cognitive behavioural model of hypnosis and also the cognitive-behavioural model of client assessment, treatment planning and treatment delivery. Many courses train students in a wide range of techniques but fail to train students in the core of therapy - how to assess the client, agree goals and then design and deliver an agreed treatment plan.

About 50% of the course time is spent doing practicals - with lectures, discussion and videos making up the rest.

Many students like the focused 7 day training blocks (rather than one weekend per month) - as it allows them to progress faster and to become very deeply involved with the content and ideas.

At the end of the course students complete a written assessment in order to receive the Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy (Hypno-CBT®)
