Courses in hypnotherapy with CPHT York

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

If you’re thinking of going into Practice as a hypnotherapist, you can train locally in York 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 York 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 York, 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 Course starts on 13th May 2023

Why CPHT York?

What student's say about CPHT York..

Having experienced the ‘sharp end’ of hypnotherapy, John brings his own knowledge and understanding to the classroom. Approachable and supportive, he has a warm and friendly personality which enhances his teaching style and ability to ‘get the message across’. With his love of coffee, good food and travel, as well as his outstanding technical skills, John is a tutor not to be forgotten and it is a pleasure to have been taught by him. His supervision sessions are pretty good too!

I qualified as a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist with CPHT in December 2019. Cathy is an amazing tutor and the atmosphere on the course is excellent, you will make friends for life as I did. Training with CPHT is without doubt the best career decision I have ever made. It has allowed me at my own pace, to begin a career that is both interesting and rewarding in equal measure.Joe Forshaw

I cannot recommend CPHT enough.From the moment I contacted them to express an interest in the course they were happy to answer questions and communicated everything I needed to know before the course began ensuring I had made the right decision in the Hypnotherapy school I had chosen to train with.I loved every minute of training with Cathy at CPHT, both lecturers are knowledgeable and experienced and it really showed, not only in the classroom but between lessons when we needed the support.Even after the ten month course ended Cathy has continued to be there as supervisor and ensure that I am happy in my new career.The course itself doesn't just teach you what you need to know as a Hypnotherapist but also as a new business owner.
