Courses in hypnotherapy with CPHT Bristol

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

If you’re thinking of going into Practice as a hypnotherapist, you can train locally in Bristol 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 Bristol 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 Bristol, 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. It 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 Courses start: 9th March 2024 (weekend) and 14th March 2024 (weekday)

Why CPHT Bristol?

What students say about CPHT Bristol...

CPHT Bristol Hypnotherapy TrainingExcellentCPHT Bristol Hypnotherapy Training4.9 Based on 8 reviews fromSee all reviewsMargaret CaponMargaret Capon ★★★★★ I loved the sessions on the CPHT course, the great tuition and support from our tutors and from each other in our group. I was very impressed with the solid evidence based research in neurology, and psychology that underpins the practice. I would strongly recommend this course. It was hard work, and quite intense at times, but great fun.Bryony WayBryony Way ★★★★★ I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the CPHT course in Bristol. Fantastic lecturers and a brilliant course. I cannot recommend it enough.Rob DixonRob Dixon ★★★★★ A fantastic course which was very practical and most importantly fun throughout. You will learn everything you need to be a successful hypnotherapist. Susan and Stuart are excellent lecturers and good fun. If you want to have a positive impact on poeples lives as well as your own, I can highly recommend this course for you.enfys jonesenfys jones ★★★★★ This is the most prestigious college to train in Hypnotherapy, in the UK. The standard of teaching and classroom practice is extremely high (I say this as an experienced educator). The knowledge and skills you gain from completing your training at CPHT will set you up to be amongst the top practitioners in the country. I attained the diploma and then the advanced course (and a plethora of other CPDs), which I would highly recommend as it gives you an extra depth of skills as well as the specialist areas of work that is covered. The coursework is wonderfully holistic, giving you an understanding of hypnotherapy from its roots to its contemporary status. The added knowledge of neuroscience and research based studies you will gain from this course will set you above the rest and clients love this angle. You will leave with a toolkit of strategies, techniques and understanding all embedded in a rock solid, tried and tested formula that ensures you are ready and able to deal with any issues your very individual clients will present to you. David Newton has gifted this incredible technique: the combination of solution focused psychotherapy with hypnotherapy, to us and I will be forever grateful. This course changed my life and I absolutely love my work. Being in my consultation room and owning it is priceless. The more seasoned a practitioner you become after training, the more depth you actually grasp is within this very clever modern practice. I wouldn't hesitate. Sign up and be prepared for a lot of fun, laughter, interesting work (that doesn't seem remotely like work) and a skill-set that is heaven sent. Enfys JonesChristine BeardwoodChristine Beardwood ★★★★★ CPHT Bristol has a friendly professional environment giving clear understandings of the concepts and techniques of hypnotherapy in a fun way. There's support available when ever needed and they provide up to date research on brain science. I have done most of the courses available and hope to go to the new ones in the future. Training with CPHT has given me really helpful skills to enhance my life and the life of others too. Glad I chose to do this in my life. ChristineDipti the HypnotherapistDipti the Hypnotherapist ★★★★★ The Clifton Practice in Bristol is the Mothership of Hypnotherapy Excellence. I trained here with David Newton and Susan Rodrigues in 2012/2013.At this time, my life was in a very dark place as I was going through a divorce and my mother had died of cancer a few weeks before I started my training.Because of the supportive training and Solution Focused skills I quickly learnt I was able to pick my life back up and build a business from scratch and it ended up being one of the happiest times in my life.Since then, I have built a very successful and thriving Hypnotherapy Practice in the Cotswolds as well as a busy International practice online.Training as a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist is one of the most rewarding careers ever, and the support you get after your training is excellent.The continued professional development is very comprehensive. You get regular supervision contact, additional learning, marketing help, business skills and pastoral care - and this is very helpful as you build your business.Thank you Clifton Practice, Bristol for everything you have done for me.Clare FrancescaClare Francesca ★★★★★ Training as a Solution Focused Hpnotherapist at Clifton Practice 10 years ago at the age of 50 was the best move I could have made. I am enjoying a wonderful career doing something really useful and have never looked back.Lucy GilroyLucy Gilroy ★★★★★ This course gives you everything you need to be come a successful therapist. A diploma level course based around sound theory and a lot of practical experience.js_loader
