Most frequent questions and answers
How do I become a hypnotherapist?
If you want to become a hypnotherapist and have a career as a professional clinical hypnotherapist, you’ll want to do your research. There are a LOT of different training courses, offering many different types of hypnotherapy. You can learn over a single weekend or train for over a year. Courses are delivered online, through distance or face to face learning. The choices can be overwhelming.
If you only want to learn a little bit about hypnosis, then a weekend course or even a taster day delivered online will be enough. However, would you really be happy offering hypnotherapy for anxiety, depression, weight management, OCD and many other clinical issues if you didn’t have in-depth learning and experience?
Clinical hypnotherapy is a complementary therapy, much like counselling, so to become a hypnotherapist you need thorough, evidence-based training that gives you a recognised qualification. Your training and qualification should be of a standard where you are eligible to join the respected hypnotherapy organisations and you can be insured for professional indemnity insurance.
You will want your training to give you enough practical experience so that you are competent, safe and confident enough to start practising as a professional hypnotherapist when you qualify. Your training should give you the basics in how to start and run a hypnotherapy practice as currently (2022) there are no employed positions as hypnotherapists.
If you want to become a hypnotherapist don’t just pick what looks quick, cheap and easy – pick what gives people the best and safest results and seems respected by the industry as a whole.
What is Solution Focused Hypnotherapy?
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy uses practical, modern, and well-researched strategies to help people make significant, positive changes in their lives in a short period of time.
As a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist, you’ll support your clients to focus on the outcome they want, rather than the issues that prompted them to seek therapy. This approach focuses on the present and future, without the need to relive the past and is underpinned by up to date research in the fields of neuroscience and brain-based therapies.
The Hypnotherapist asks the client to consider their preferred future, for instance:
- What would be better if the problem had improved?
- What would have changed?
The addition of trance (hypnosis) within each session allows the brain to consolidate the changes faster than just talking therapy alone.
Common issues that Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help with include:
- Panic Attacks
- Low confidence
- Weight management
- Chronic Pain
- Chronic health issues
And it can help with so much more!
How long does it take to become a hypnotherapist?
The Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma (HPD) is a complete training qualification, which means you can go from novice to a level 4 professional hypnotherapist in 10 months.
Each month you’ll learn a new aspect of how to be a hypnotherapist. In the time between modules, we expect you to practice what you have learnt. At the beginning of the following module, you have time to ask questions and get feedback on your practical work. In this way, you build up your skills and confidence at a pace which suits you.
Whilst some hypnotherapy courses are delivered over even just a weekend, or self-led learning online, you’ll find this doesn’t give you the depth of learning or experience needed to make a living as a professional hypnotherapist. Experience shows us that to be a confident, competent, effective and safe hypnotherapist takes more than just a weekend or a condensed week or two of training.
Our students often say it is the fastest 10 months of their lives and that the support of professional and practising hypnotherapists, together with so much practical experience, is what gave them the confidence to start their practices on graduation.
