Courses in hypnotherapy with CPHT Edinburgh

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

If you’re thinking of going into Practice as a hypnotherapist, you can train locally in Edinburgh 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 Edinburgh 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 Edinburgh, 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.

What students say about CPHT Edinburgh...

CPHT EdinburghExcellentCPHT Edinburgh5.0 Based on 4 reviews fromSee all reviewsAnn HarrisonAnn Harrison ★★★★★ I feel fortunate to have trained with the CPHT Edinburgh School , it has given me a whole new career and a new lease of life.The course is structured in such a way as to instil confidence in you from the word go. Also the lecturers are full of enthusiasm and make every module very enjoyable while delivering the essence of SFH, the neuroscience and interesting anecdotes from their personal experience as Solution Focused Hypnotherapists. They (in this instance Anne Wyatt and Alex Brounger) have been supportive all the way and have faith in sending us out into the world to 'fly solo'. The icing on the cake was meeting and getting to know the rest of the class and becoming part of our 'Hypno Family'!Elaine NealeElaine Neale ★★★★★ This course has literally changed my life! By re-training I have the skills and confidence to leave a job I no longer loved and do something really worthwhile and fulfilling as a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist. Anne and Alex were great and the people on the course are now friends for life.Mariana BabasMariana Babas ★★★★★ The most amazing training ever! With full confidence, I can say it is life changing!
