Courses in hypnotherapy with CPHT Plymouth

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

If you’re thinking of going into Practice as a hypnotherapist, you can train locally in Plymouth 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 Plymouth 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 Plymouth, 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 18th June 2022.

Why CPHT Plymouth?

What student's say about CPHT Plymouth..

I was apprehensive about doing my hypnotherapy training at first, but having completed the course, I’m so glad I did it, and especially that I studied with Matthew at CPHT Plymouth. The course was demanding but interesting and fun, with the right balance of theory and practice. Matthew and the others who teach on the course really know their stuff. I graduated a few months ago and have already set-up a practice and started to see clients. Highly recommend!

This is a great course. Matthew is incredibly knowledgeable about hypnotherapy and is very keen to share all his experience with his students. He is also very experienced in the realities of running a hypnotherapy business and incorporates this side of being a hypnotherapy practitioner into the training seamlessly. I really enjoyed my time as a CPHT student and I now love running a successful clinical hypnotherapist business.
