Courses in hypnotherapy with CPHT Manchester

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

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

The course is well organised, professionally run and the syllabus is well thought out and comprehensive.Debbie has been a fantastic tutor, she is very experienced and confident. Working with peers on the course has been amazing and the course has covered not only the therapy but also business and marketing skills.Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a brilliant modality that is rewarding to use, and I love that it is based on neuroscience, CBT, SFBT, making it versatile. If you are thinking about this course, I would encourage you to enquire, it is worth every penny!Jo VandekelfJo Vandekelf ★★★★★ Fantastic course & great support throughout! I can highly recommend to anyone looking to change career or branch out into another area.Thanks so much Debbie!UTUT ★★★★★ I am so pleased that I chose to begin my hypnotherapy training journey with CPHT. The course has been engaging, informative and has set me up to have a successful career as a Hypnotherapist. My tutor Debbie has been hugely supportive and I would throughly recommend this course to anyone wanting to train.Joy ParryJoy Parry ★★★★★ I trained with Debbie Daltry and Jane Fox in 2021 and I am so glad I chose Clifton Practice. The training is second to none and the knowledge taught is exemplary. I would recommend Clifton Practice and Debbie and Jane to anyone interested in a career in HypnotherapyLaura DCLaura DC ★★★★★ I can personally recommend the CPHT training in Manchester. I completed this in 2018 and as well as being really enjoyable and informative, I gained the skills to set up my private practice. The CPHT supervision has also supported me and my CPD across the past 5 years. I continue to see private clients (as I choose and that fits in with my home life) whilst I have also used the training to commence a career (2020) within the NHS and quickly achieved a band 8 role (solution focused thinking is a great tool for success). The cost of completing the course was recouped within the first few months of seeing clients one day a week once I had qualified. I intend to continue my professional CPD/ supervision with CPHT so that I may always have hypnotherapy clients over my lifetime due to the high level of job satisfaction and personal growth it offers to me. I work full time for the NHS currently, however I do see clients regularly as I continue to have people recommended to me from my previous clients over the past few years. (I can say if you put some work into your private practice you can can be seeing 10 clients a week relatively easily). PS: the support between all the graduates and trainers of CPHT is also really lovely !Lucy Thompson HypnotherapyLucy Thompson Hypnotherapy ★★★★★ I qualified as a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist in 2018 from CPHT Manchester and I can highly recommend it as a training provider. The course teaches you everything you need to know to be an effective hypnotherapist and to build your own practice.Training with this school also helped me immensely to over come my own struggles with my mental health and helped me to feel more calm, confident and in control of my lifeLinda McEnaneyLinda McEnaney ★★★★★ I am so happy that I chose to train with CPHT Manchester. The theory is so interesting and well presented & by practicing on volunteer clients from the start really builds your confidence. Debbie & Jane have been brilliant with great knowledge & support & I have met fantastic, like minded students. Recommended to anyone considering hypnotherapy.Graham WilliamsGraham Williams ★★★★★ I am delighted to be able to write a review for the Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training (CPHT Manchester), Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy training course.I have completed 9 months - out of the 10 months - of the CPHT Manchester, Diploma in 'Solution Focused Hypnotherapy' training.(I previously worked as a psychological therapist, in the NHS, for 14 years, doing CBT, EMDR, MBCT)I can whole heartedly recommend this hypnotherapy diploma for many reasons.The trainers - Jane and Debbie - are experienced, supportive, approachable, and they make the learning doable and enjoyable. They are also very accessible and responsive between training dates, if we have queries and / or client matters to discuss.There have also been several guest trainers, who have added a lot of value.The course is very focused on training students to become competent and confident professional Solution Focused Hypnotherapists, and it definitely achieves its aims: from month 3, we have been practising our skills with friends, family and, eventually, clients, and receiving supervision for our clinical work, and from month 7, we have been able to charge clients 'student rate' for our therapy.I really appreciate the Solution Focussed nature of the therapy that we are training in: concentrating on what is going well for clients and what they want to achieve; helping them to move themselves, incrementally, towards their preferred lives, rather than dwelling on problems and talking about the past.Sure, talking about the past and problems, has a role, at times, in other therapies, but I have been really impressed with the outcomes that this therapy is having for clients, and I (and all of my student colleagues) have some great testimonials to demonstrate this.So, if you are looking to train to be a professional Hypnotherapist, I would definitely recommend CPHT Manchester, and this Solution Focused Hypnotherapy training.Jayne ShawJayne Shaw ★★★★★ I attended this course back in 2018, what a fantastic experience! The lecturers are highly professional and skilled, supporting you in your growth and confidence. I now have a successful hypnotherapy business and love my job!Jane FoxJane Fox ★★★★★ Training as a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist with CPHT Manchester led me to a brilliant new career that I wasn't really expecting. As well as building a successful private practice, I have also gone on to become a supervisor for CPHT graduates and also a Senior Lecturer with the Clifton Practice. There is a clear path from graduation that anyone can take to expand their career. I would highly recommend CPHT to anyone interested in training to become a hypnotherapist.Lisa SutcliffeLisa Sutcliffe ★★★★★ I am currently in my 9th month of training with CPHT Manchester, during this time I have learnt so much and thoroughly enjoyed each module. The course is in depth, well structured and so interesting. The tutors are amazing, not only at delivering the contents of the course but also ensuring they are available to provide support in-between classes. I am already working with clients and it really adds to the whole experience knowing that I am helping people. I am so glad I decided to train with CPHT and I highly recommend CPHT Manchester.Mimi TwaijriMimi Twaijri ★★★★★ I joined the course in February 2022 and I couldn’t be more satisfied and thrilled. Learned a lot and enjoyed every weekend 😊Jane and Debbie are great instructors and tutors, they are very supportive and encouraging.. I consider myself lucky to have them as tutors. I would strongly recommend the course to anyone interested. Can’t wait till I graduate (next month) and launch my business 😃Karen OliverKaren Oliver ★★★★★ I would recommend this course to anyone interested in hypnotherapy. In-depth, well structured and excellently presented each module covering a different aspect of hypnotherapy deepening the students knowledge. I have thoroughly enjoyed both the practical and theory elements and would not hesitate in recommending it. Believe me take the first small step you’ll be surprised as to where it may lead !Jackie SwainbankJackie Swainbank ★★★★★ I have almost completed my course with CPHT. They have been supportive and helpful all the way. I highly recommend the course, it has changed my life, allowing me to pursue a very rewarding career.michelle fletchermichelle fletcher ★★★★★ Fantastic course, great support & guidance from the tutors, highly recommended.Richard ThompsonRichard Thompson ★★★★★ I found this course very informative and really appreciated how accommodating both tutors were given that i am the first blind student they have had on the course. Due to Covid the majority of the course was via zoom but this did not detract from the learning experience. The course challenged me at times, however i acquired new skills and knowledge and received excellent support from both tutors throughout.Addison CooperAddison Cooper ★★★★★ I'm about to graduate from the Solution Focused Hypnotherapy course and have thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm already an experienced clinical hypnotherapist but wanted to learn about the solution focused approach. Also The Clifton Practice is very well known as a centre of excellence, so I knew I could learn a lot from this course. The course is well structured, well paced and the tutors are very professional, friendly and helpful. It's been a great experience, I've met some wonderful people and I've learnt even more about hypnotherapy and psychotherapy. It's a great course for both beginner and experienced therapist alike. If you're considering a future in hypnotherapy or want to add another modality to your current practice, then CPHT would be a recommended place to look.Daniel RedwoodDaniel Redwood ★★★★★ js_loader
