Courses in hypnotherapy with CPHT Belfast

Accredited solution-focused hypnotherapy training. We have over 20 years of experience and our training is delivered by qualified practising hypnotherapists in Belfast & throughout the UK.

If you’re thinking of going into Practice as a hypnotherapist, you can train locally in Belfast using an established, trusted model of hypnotherapy, with one of the longest-running schools in the UK.

We train you to become competent and confident, business-ready practitioners – ready to go into practice as soon as you graduate.
You’ll be learning face to face, with classroom-based, practical and experiential learning at our Belfast campus, one of over 30 around the country. Your diploma level training is made up of 10 modules delivered one weekend a month, over 10 months. This allows you time to practice your skills and build your confidence between modules. It means you can fit your training around your life and current commitments. You’ll be trained by two qualified, experienced and successful solution-focused hypnotherapists which give you the advantage of being taught by people who know and understand the world of therapy today and are passionate about sharing their knowledge, experience and wisdom.

When you train for a diploma in solution-focused hypnotherapy in Belfast, you are working towards achieving two qualifications, both of which are nationally recognised and accredited. The Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (DSFH) and the Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma (HPD).

The Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a practical qualification, based on the latest research and neuroscience will teach you what you need to go into practice safely and confidently. The Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma deepens the theory behind the skills and is the only nationally recognised and externally accredited award in hypnotherapy in the UK. The Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma is verified by NCFE as a level four award on the vocational framework.

As a student, you benefit from real-world experience. You’ll be practising with people who have anxiety-related conditions between modules, all the while supported in class and remotely by your lecturers. This means you can gain experience safely while you train. Past graduates have often told us this gave them the confidence they needed to go into practice because they graduated with real-life success stories as part of their case histories.

It can be daunting when you decide to invest in your future, but you can spread the cost of your training with hassle-free, monthly payment options. We’ve made it as easy as possible for you to train towards a new and rewarding career.

Our next Hypnotherapy Diploma Course starts on 10th September 2022.

Fantastic course, I loved the up to date research on the brain and how this impacts us on a daily basis. The combination of therapy and hypnosis is very powerful and having had some myself throughout the course I have definitely felt the benefits. The tutors are really knowledgeable, experienced and also extremely supportive with any hurdles along the way. I highly recommend this course!

The course run by CPHT Belfast was fabulous. The tutors were fun and informative and the content was easily understood, and able to be applied to real life therapies with clients. There was great support throughout especially considering it had to be delivered nearly entirely online at short notice. I would commend this course to any new students considering making life-changing career choices Dermot

I’m almost finished the course (18-19) and it’s amazing. Everything is making sense now, why we behave the way we do, why animals don’t! The human brain is truly fascinating.
I never felt that my job as a dental nurse, was the making of me! There was something better and more rewarding for me out there, well I’ve found it!!
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy!!
I knew after the first weekend I was hooked and this IS my career path.
I will never look and back and wonder what if?? I know!! 😃🌈👍
