Accredited Hypnotherapy Training Course

CPHT’s accredited Hypnotherapy Diploma Course will equip you to become an effective and business-ready solution focused hypnotherapist. Whether you have prior experience as a helping professional or are looking to completely change your career, you can graduate with all the necessary skills and knowledge you need to begin your career immediately. 

Successful completion of the course and your accompanying portfolio leads to awards of Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (DSFH) and the NCFE accredited Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma (HPD)

The course is highly practical, which enables reflective practice. You’ll be taught the theory, skills and techniques first in a comfortable and supportive classroom environment. In the weeks between modules, you will implement what you learn in the classroom. Starting with friends and family, you’ll do more as your experience and confidence grow. 

Very quickly you’ll be helping members of the public overcome some significant personal difficulties. It is whilst gaining this experience that you truly get to understand the powerful impact your work can have on your clients. You’ll build experience, maintain learning momentum and start to build the foundations of your hypnotherapy business as you train. All whilst being strongly supported by your Lecturers.

Course Overview

For future and practising Hypnotherapists who want to be at the forefront of the hypnotherapy profession, the classroom learning of this diploma level course will cover all elements of the Solution Focused Hypnotherapy model. Including solution focused questioning, neuroscience, how and who you can help, how to work with the various conditions, practical exercises and of course hypnosis. To ensure our graduates are business-ready the course also includes marketing, business basics and extensive reflective practice.

Why should you choose CPHT?

Hypnosis

As you might expect on a hypnotherapy course, you’ll cover everything you need to know to use therapeutic hypnosis (hypnotherapy) safely and effectively with clients.

Neuroscience

Neuroscience is a cornerstone of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. You will learn about the most relevant neuroscience research and how to use that information effectively with your clients.

Psychotherapy

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy combines the best of the best of evidence based psychotherapy therapy, explanations of neuroscience and therapeutic hypnosis.

Start Your Business As you Train

A central aim of CPHT is to produce business ready Solution Focused Hypnotherapists. We encourage you to start building your practice whilst you train, which means you, like many of our graduates, can leave the course, if not with a full time practice in place then a part time practice up and running.

Business Ready

Knowing how to do the job of a Hypnotherapist is one thing. Growing and running a successful business is equally important in becoming a successful hypnotherapist. The course gives you a solid, therapy specific, marketing foundation and covers the basics of running a business, maximising the chances of building a successful practice during and after the course.

Start Charging Clients Whilst Training

Taking payment for a service provided can be a step which some people find difficult. In the last two or three months of the course we ask you to charge a student fee to your clients so you can get used to this part of running a business. This means that upon graduation all you need to do is remove the word “student” and change the prices you charge.

Who is the course suitable for?

We do not look for any particular kind of experience or any specific qualifications when people apply for our Hypnotherapy Diploma Training Course. As a result, we get people from a very wide range of backgrounds. It is, of course, important to have an interest in Hypnotherapy and a desire to help people make positive changes in their lives, however no previous experience or qualifications are required. 

People looking to retrain & start a new career

Some of our students are looking to change careers completely, others would like to be a part-time Hypnotherapist whilst maintaining their current job. The course is a commitment but is part-time. Some students have time to devote to the course and use this to get their hypnotherapy practices completely set up and running by the time they graduate. Others take a more measured approach as they work around work and/or family commitments.

Professionals looking to add a new skill set

Are you already a talking therapist a physical therapist or a coach? Do you already work with people but in a different way? Many of our students are looking to add additional skills to their current offering or improve their ability to work with people in their current working environment.

What will you learn on our Hypnotherapy course?

Once you have attended all ten modules and met the requirements of the course, you will be awarded the Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (DSFH) by CPHT.

To be awarded your Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma (HPD) you will need to complete a portfolio of evidence during the course. The Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma is awarded by the NCH (the largest Hypnotherapy Association in the UK) and it has been externally accredited and verified by the NCFE (an awarding body in the UK) as being the equivalent of a level four qualification on the educational and qualification framework.

During this module you will be introduced to hypnotherapy and learn what it is and what it can help with. You will learn all about solution focused hypnotherapy, how it developed and about its founder, David Newton. You’ll start to understand how the brain creates the symptoms of anxiety, depression and anger. The EEG is a useful tool to show you what happens in the brain, when a person is in trance. You’ll experience trance yourself and practice it on other students. There will be a few practical exercises to get your brain working and help you understand what your clients experience. This module will give you the materials and confidence to begin practicing on volunteers when you get home.

This second module will see your knowledge of neuroscience increase and help you to understand more about why we do, what we do. You’ll be introduced to the format of a typical solution focused hypnotherapy session and learn how to best explain how the brain works to your clients.  You’ll learn what information to collect from your hypnotherapy clients so that you help them effectively. An introduction to GDPR requirements will ensure that the information of your clients remains safe. You’ll get involved in some more practical exercises and practice giving and receiving trance with your fellow students. You’ll enjoy hearing about the experiences of your fellow students with their clients and they will enjoy hearing all about yours.

In module 3, you’ll learn more about solution focused brief therapy (SFBT) and how it underpins the psychological element of how we work. You’ll practice using scaling and the miracle question to help your volunteers make plans, so they can take small steps towards their goal. You’ll understand the importance of metaphors in all that we do and learn how to create your own in a group exercise. You’ll listen to a successful case study to help you learn how a typical client makes progress. One more exercise this month will help you see how to personalise your explanation of the brain for your volunteers. As usual you will be sharing your experiences of working with clients with the group and hearing about those of your fellow students.

Mental health is the theme for this module, understanding what it is and how you can help people with theirs. You’ll be introduced to CORP, the largest research programme in the UK for hypnotherapy and given a discount code to allow you to download it for less and experience it for yourself. This module also sees the introduction of the portfolio for the  ‘Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma’ (HPD). We will give you guidance on how to complete it and the type of case studies you’ll need to evidence it. You will be introduced to free/cheap marketing this month, to help you find the volunteers you’ll need for your case studies. Some students will be carrying out their first practical assessment this month, this too will be helpful as evidence for the portfolio. As usual you will be hearing about the experiences of working with clients, from your fellow students and sharing your experiences too.

In this module, we focus almost exclusively on phobias. You will learn the difference between a simple and complex phobia and the different way of dealing with each. PTSD is a form of extreme phobia and we will talk about how best to help people with this condition too. Our approach for simple phobias uses an adaptation of the NLP Rewind/Reframe technique. The Rewind & Reframe techniques will each be explained, then demonstrated. You will practice the Rewind on other students and complete a Reframe exercise in small groups. We will learn about your experiences with clients this month and some students will be carrying out their first practical assessment. Another NLP technique that you’ll learn about this month is the Swish technique, great for people who have an interview, exam or test coming up.

In module 6 we learn all about the different behavioural styles people display and how you can build rapport with your clients. You will learn how to help people to stop smoking or vaping in just one session. An introduction to working with children and safeguarding are also topics that we cover in module 6. Chronic pain is a condition that can be helped by hypnotherapy and you’ll learn how in this module too. Our second marketing session looks at websites and what should be included in yours when you’re ready to make a start. A few more students will complete their first practical assessments this module and we will continue to find out about your experiences with clients.

During module 7, you will learn all about the neuroscience of obesity and how you will be able to help clients to lose weight. You will receive the latest research into hypnotherapy and how it has been shown to help with various conditions including some physical illnesses. Understanding how placebo works and how it can help clients, is an area that you’ll spend time discovering in module 7 too. GDPR is something that was introduced in module 2, now you’ll learn more about what you need to do to ensure compliance with current guidelines. Another opportunity to experience trance while practicing the miracle question on each other will present itself. The final students completing their first practical assessments will be filmed and we will also enjoy hearing about the progress of your clients. After this module you’ll be able to charge half price with your clients.

In the eighth module you will learn how to help clients who want to improve their performance, whether this is acting, singing, driving, sports or any other area. You’ll learn how to help clients who suffer from OCD. You’ll gain an understanding of analytical techniques. You’ll be given information on how to apply the latest research in your therapy sessions with clients. This will help them to understand how best to support their recovery. We will learn all about your experiences with clients but in a new format this module, as we get closer to qualification. You’ll get the opportunity to tell us about a case study you’re proud of. You’ll receive information on the requirements of continuous professional development that apply after qualification and details of the Advanced Hypnotherapy Diploma (AHD). You’ll look at another case study and learn how to forecast their recovery based on essential information. As usual there are practical exercises for you to get involved with.

In module 9 you’ll learn all about the best type of paid-for advertising to use, if you want to promote your new business, with our third marketing session of the course. You’ll hear from one of last year’s graduates who will come in to tell you about their first year in practice. They will focus on what they did right and what they wish they’d done differently. They will also answer any questions you may have, as you prepare to start your own business. You will be reminded about what goes on in the brain while a client is in trance and you will get the chance to talk about one of your successful case studies. Listening to your work with clients will be in the new format again this month, mirroring that of a typical group supervision session, which you’ll also learn more about. As usual there will be a least one practical exercise this month, this one will see you enjoying trance again.

Graduation is the theme of this module, making sure that you have everything you need to qualify with confidence. Some final case studies from the last few students. Practical exercises that will help you to prepare for giving talks to local organisations, while practicing your knowledge at the same time. There will be some last-minute accounts pointers to ensure you know where to go for more detailed information. Finally, a lovely buffet with some bubbly to celebrate the presentation of your Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy!

I trained with CPHT Birmingham in 2016. I had looked at other training schools before choosing CPHT as the most experienced and offering the best training. For me personally, it ticked all the boxes. The venue is easy to get to and has plenty of parking, it is a very pleasant place with great facilities. The group was small and friendly and well manged. The training was interesting and comprehensive, with plenty of practise sessions. The course work is as expected for a Level 4 course, but everyone is encouraged to work hard, use their new skills and to start putting into practice what they have learned from day 1. As students and individuals, we were supported and respected. I now have a very successful Hypnotherapy practice and am undertaking an Advanced Diploma and Supervisors Course.

I’m almost finished the course (18-19) and it’s amazing. Everything is making sense now, why we behave the way we do, why animals don’t! The human brain is truly fascinating.
I never felt that my job as a dental nurse, was the making of me! There was something better and more rewarding for me out there, well I’ve found it!!
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy!!
I knew after the first weekend I was hooked and this IS my career path.

The course and the tutors were amazing. Being a classically trained hypnotherapist the t filled in the blanks for me on how the mind works. I especially like the process of not having clients to dwell on the past to bring about lasting change. So much so that I now only see clients on a solution focused basis. I would highly recommend the course

The course is intense but very hands on. Gary, Ali and Claire encourage the students to start practicing their new skills after the first weekend which builds confidence quickly. The results that we receive from clients from the very beginning is absolutely amazing. Amazing career move.

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.

I have recently graduated with CPHT Cardiff and would recommend to anyone who is considering training to become a hypnotherapist. The course is well structured and practical right from the first module, which gives you client experience all through the training. The course is also has a business focus which helps you to get everything in place to practice as soon as you are qualified. I fell it has equipped me with the skills to be a successful practitioner.

Such a great experience training with CPHT. The trainers were friendly and knowledgable. We were practicing from the very first weekend, and by the end of the course I had opened my hypnotherapy practice with paying clients. I also came away with new friends and a support network. Not only do you get new skills, but you also learn a lot about the neuroscience behind the work we do. I would highly recommend this course to anyone.

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 Jones

The tutors are very experienced, motivating and confidence building.

It includes a great deal of practical experience as well as quality advice in setting up and providing your service to clients safely and professionally.

A new career making a real difference to people's livesI found that the course structure and content were designed to create a supportive, stretching, interactive, practical route to a new career as a solution focused hypnotherapist. The tutors came across as highly experienced and knowledgeable and worked with people on the course where they were in their knowledge and understanding of hypnotherapy. As a graduating hypnotherapist from the 1st Sheffield course I can say the tutors provided me with the support I needed throughout the programme to reach each milestone and made it feel achievable. I felt the course ptovided a balance of different learning styles - theoretical or practical. The client work started almost at the start of the course and I found it incredibly satisfying to make a real difference to people's lives.

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.

By studying Solution Focused Hypnotherapy with CPHT Surrey Hypnotherapy Training I knew that I was being taught by one of the best training schools in the country. The qualifications you receive after successfully completing the course, the Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (DSFH) and Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma (HPD), are considered to be the 'Gold' standard in hypnotherapy training. What I really liked about the course is that you start practicing with clients straight away, so you gain invaluable experience and start to build your client portfolio.

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.

Since starting training with CPHT last September, I’ve never looked back! I have made the first steps towards a brand new career where I can help others reach their full potential and find peace in their lives.

Anne and Alex, our tutors, are fantastic. They have a wealth of experience between them and have made the last 10 months of learning fun and so enjoyable. I’ll miss our monthly sessions together, but can’t wait to qualify next month and get my brand new business up and running.

I would thoroughly recommend CPHT Scotland to anyone who had a passion for helping others and who is looking for a change of career. Signing up for this course is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!

The course run by CPHT Belfast was fabulous. The tutors were fun and informative and the content was easily understood, and able to be applied to real life therapies with clients.

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'!

If you want to be the best in this profession - you need to be taught by the best in the profession. I did a vast amount of research on the various organisations who teach hypnotherapy in the UK before signing up with CPHT Preston. No one else seemed to come close to the overall quality and content of the comprehensive course on offer at CPHT. You really are supported all the way through this quality course - and beyond, by dedicated top notch leading practitioners. Delighted to recommend.

From my first enquiry about joining this course I knew CPHT Preston was exactly what I'd been looking for in hypnotherapy training. I'd researched a few courses, but Cathy & Karen are absolutely fantastic. Their enthusiasm and expertise has been of the highest level. The standard of tuition is the best I've had and I would say if you're looking for a training course that gives you the knowledge you need and the support to get you to a competent, confident Clinical Hypnotherapist, then this is it! CPHT is geared to being by your side from day 1 to beyond your training with their massive choice of CPD courses. Go for it! It's the best decision I made, and I'm sure it will be for you too.

I cannot wait to start helping others when I start to practise on my own, if you enjoy making a difference, and helping others in the process , this course is for you.I cannot believe how quickly this course has gone. Thanks to Cathy and Karen for delivering an enjoyable experience, and for helping me personally with care, support and encouragement throughout.

Really, really enjoyed my training with Jenny and Caron at CPHT Leeds. I would absolutely recommend this course to anyone thinking of going into Hypnotherapy.The course is well thought out, and well paced, and gives you everything you need to set up your own practice, including hands-on experience from the start with clients so once you're qualified you are confident to see people immediately. It is fascinating, informative and a first class course.I loved the fact it covers both the neuroscience behind the therapy as well as all the marketing, and business side of things - this makes it a really well rounded course which doesn't just teach you the basics of hypnotherapy but also how to set up and run a successful practice.Both tutors are brilliant - supportive, kind, and knowledgeable with everything you need - they have their own busy clinics so can answer any and all questions you might have.Would 100% recommend. Thank you Jenny and Caron xx

I have qualified as a solution-focused hypnotherapist this month. I have enjoyed this course so much! The lecturers have been brilliant and very supportive. The course was fun, very informative and practising on clients during our studies has been an invaluable experience. A very rewarding career! Highly recommend. Many thanks to Jenny and Caron for all their support.

I have recently qualified as a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist from CPHT Leeds. I cannot recommend this course enough! You start seeing clients early on in the course meaning when you qualify you already have the confidence and experience needed to set up your own practice. The lecturers were very supportive and helpful throughout the duration of the course.If training to become a Hypnotherapist is something you have thought about but never been sure on, just go for it! you won't regret it!Thank you, Jenny and Caron!

Fantastic hypnotherapy course! It has been such a great experience. My tutors where very knowledgeable and supportive and my fellow students have been such a lovely group of people to be around! Something that I have really valued about this course is that we began to practise with real clients from the beginning, so by the time we graduated, we were very well prepared and already practising as professionals. Thank you Jenny and Caron for all that you have taught us.

By studying Solution Focused Hypnotherapy with the CPHT Surrey Hypnotherapy Training School, you will not only be able to learn all of tools and techniques associated with hypnotherapy, but will also gain the valuable experience of working with a portfolio of clients. One of the best aspects of the course is that through the excellent guidance of the tutors (who share their knowledge generously) you will be able to have everything you need in place to start practicing. As a byproduct of the course I have also found I am confident in a number of areas which I have previously struggled with. Thank you Holly and Brian

I was so glad I chose to train with CPHT, - there are a number of other courses available but they don’t have the ‘all-round’ approach that CPHT offers. They cover everything, this isn’t just a theoretical course, you get to put it into practice very quickly which builds confidence, and the practical skills required to gain real experience prior to qualifying. The course covers marketing, finance, date protection, business planning - everything you need to set up your own business and it is done at a pace that doesn’t feel overwhelming at any point. The tutors Jenny and Caron are fantastic and the support is second to none. The students on my course were fantastic and we supported each other throughout the course. When I was researching hypnotherapy courses I saw the reviews for CPHT and was a tad cynical that they were all five star reviews and here I am almost a year later giving them a well deserved five stars from me! Absolutely worth it.

Matthew Cahill has the secret sauce and Joanna and Alina have an energy and magic that lights the course up all the way through making the 10 months seem short. The course is cleverly thought out and delivered in well designed blocks giving a valued emphasis on the practical aspect. As a result I constantly felt stretched, supported and trusted. Matthew's calm and unflappable nature inspires and builds confidence. Here's the real magic that separates CPHT from other cheaper and quicker courses... By the time I graduated in August 2021 I already had an organised and professional practice up and running with a small but steadily increasing client base. It also gave me the confidence to initiate the transition from my current Project Management role into full time Hypnotherapy. I highly recommend CPHT London to anyone considering hypnotherapy as a career. Thank you Matthew, Joanna, Alina and all my wonderful delegates/students/therapists... 🙂

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.

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.

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!

The course was friendly and comfortable. The teaching methods were thought provoking and clear.All the students noticed a difference in thinking, now we are more knowledgeable and really believing that we can confidently deliver Solution Focused Hypnotherapy for helping and supporting people.Additionally, I have learnt some effective techniques that have proved helpful to me personally.It was excellently done, professional and sensitive. Brian and Sian led us towards the answer, rather than telling us.

Ten months ago, I can honestly say that I was a different person - this course has enabled me to envisage and to appreciate life differently and to help countless people along the way. It's been a transformative journey, even within my own family - as my little boy was helping me rehearse for one of my assessments, we all realised he was also starting to understand the workings of the brain. My sincere thanks to both Sian and Brian who are simply outstanding teachers and mentors.

CPHT training in Glasgow takes you on a journey of self discovery and equips you to share your learning with others, in a practical, solution focussed way.
CPHT gives you the tools to be a confident Solution Focussed Hypnotherapy Practitioner and helps you create the foundations of your own future practice for you to build on after qualifying.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the course in Glasgow and would recommend it to anyone thinking about hypnotherapy training in the future.

Matthew Cahill and his team provide a first-class intensive course at Finsbury Circus in London. Over the 10 months we were made to actively participate and practice a therapist's skills, so that by the end we felt completely confident and ready for practising. There was fanatastic backup and communication between sessions, with questions always comprehensively and promptly answered. All aspects were covered including marketing, the therapeutic relationship, ethical practices, as well as the techniques themselves. For all the tuition and support we got it was excellent value.We were taught that a session of hypnotherapy should be the highlight of the client's week. The tuition days were certainly the highlight of my month.I can't recommend the course highly enough.

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.

You won't regret doing this course! The tutors are fab and support you the whole way with informative weekends and supervision in-between. I have a much deeper understanding about how and why people develop behaviours and habits that can be destructive and debilitative. You will learn the skills you need to transform your clients lives for the better. Using the Clifton Practice's solution focused hypnotherapy techniques, I now have so much more confidence in my own abilities as a therapist going forward. This is such a positive, forward looking style of therapy that, believe me, you won't look back once you've tried it and will be set up at the end of the course to start a successful business. Good luck!

I signed up with the Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training purely for personal enrichment but I have gained so much more. I am now a full-time hypnotherapist with my own practice and the opportunities it has provided as well as the doors it has opened have been incredible. Matthew is a fantastic educator. He has vast understanding of the science behind hypnotherapy but is also gifted in building your confidence as a practitioner. His belief in his students is infectious and he doesn’t put a ceiling on what you can achieve. I am helping hundreds of people as a result. It is my absolute pleasure to recommend this course.

Absolutely fabulous course! CPHT is a great training school to study with as it really is a leader in the industry. We train to a level 4 diploma so it isn’t an breeze’ by any stretch of the imagination but, it is worth while and so well put together. CPHT support their teaching skills with lots of evidence based stats and the use of certain pieces of equipment (I don’t want to spoil anything and give to much info away). I would highly recommend the course. You begin practicing from day one and the way the course has been put together ensures that by the end you have a small practice up and running. Perfect 👌🏼
Don’t overthink it, just do it! You won’t regret it.... it’s absolutely fantastic!!!!

Accreditations & Associations

FAQs

Most frequent questions and answers

Each month there is an element of practical work, as part of your face to face training, where we can observe and advise students to improve their abilities.

 

You see volunteer clients, from the first weekend and throughout the course. After each session, we ask you to spend a couple of minutes reflecting on that session in your client logs. This develops better self-awareness and gives you the opportunity to set achievable development goals for yourself.

 

Each month you receive group supervision and discuss, with your lecturers and peers, challenges and successes from the previous month. This keeps you and your volunteer clients safe and helps you reflect more effectively on your work as a practitioner.

  • A video presentation of your initial consultation, which you have 2-4 months to prepare for
  • A written portfolio of work, which you have several months to complete
  • 8 written case histories and one case history presentation.

We support you to complete these elements including supporting those with additional needs e.g. written portfolio can be sent in as audio or video records. If you would like to discuss this further do make contact with the lecturer at the school you wish to train at, to have your questions answered.

The Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma (HPD) qualification is a complete training, which means you can go from novice to level 4 professional hypnotherapist in 10 months.

 

Each month you’ll learn a new aspect of how to be a hypnotherapist. In the time between modules we expect you to practice what you have learnt. At the beginning of the following module, you have time to ask questions and get feedback on your practical work. In this way you build up your skills and confidence at a pace to suit you.

 

Whilst some hypnotherapy courses are delivered over even just a weekend, or self-led learning online, you’ll find this doesn’t give you the depth of learning or experience needed to make a living as a professional hypnotherapist. Experience shows us that to be a confident, competent, effective and safe hypnotherapist takes more than just a weekend or a condensed week or two of training.

 

Our students often say it is the fastest 10 months of their lives and that the support of professional and practising hypnotherapists, together with so much practical experience, is what gave them the confidence to start their practices on graduation

Hypnotherapy courses vary greatly. Professional hypnotherapist training should teach you, to help, safely and effectively, with the issues and challenges you’ve learnt about. Your training should first and foremost be very practical, which is why on the CPHT Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma, you are expected to start seeing people from the beginning of your training.

 

However, to be truly effective, you’ll need your practical experience to be backed up by a thorough understanding of the model of hypnotherapy. You’ll need to be able to recognise and understand how to help with the common issues experienced by people seeking support from a hypnotherapist. And you’ll want to have the knowledge and understanding of how the brain, hypnosis and the psychotherapeutic element of your model of hypnotherapy works.

 

Not all hypnotherapy courses are set up like this, with many being taught very quickly with little or no practical work, sometimes online or even through self-directed distance learning. When you are just curious but don’t want to become an accredited professional hypnotherapist, this kind of training is a great way to enjoy learning about the theory of hypnosis.

 

If however, you want to become a professional hypnotherapist, you will need a broader understanding of both practical and theoretical knowledge, and the experience to back it up. This kind of training will give you the best grounding for your future career and is how the Hypnotherapy In Practice Diploma is designed.

There is no statutory regulation on hypnotherapy, counselling, or psychotherapy in the UK. However, just as with counselling and psychotherapy, you can be a hypnotherapist who adheres to strict codes of ethics through accredited training and professional associations. This gives our clients an assurance of the level of training and competence of the hypnotherapist and a redress system to access should something go wrong.

 

In order to be accredited this way, as a hypnotherapist, you’ll need to gain a certain level of education, training and experience. You’ll need to commit to a number of hours of professional supervision, training and adherence to a code of conduct.

 

Whilst there are many self-accrediting or unaccredited courses, the HPD is a nationally recognised award that is benchmarked against the Ofqual standards and accredited through the NCFE. This gives you the reassurance that you are training for a worthwhile qualification that is growing in acceptance, in recent years, with traditional medicine and health insurance companies.

If you want to become a hypnotherapist and have a career as a professional clinical hypnotherapist, you’ll want to do your research. There are a LOT of different training courses, offering many different types of hypnotherapy. You can learn over a single weekend or train for over a year. Courses are delivered online, distance or face to face learning. The choice can be overwhelming.

 

If you only want to learn a little bit about hypnosis, then a weekend course, even a taster day delivered online will be enough. However, would you really be happy offering hypnotherapy for anxiety, depression, weight management, OCD and many other clinical issues if you didn’t have in-depth learning and experience?

 

Clinical hypnotherapy is a complementary therapy, much like counselling, so to become a hypnotherapist you need thorough, evidence-based training that gives you a recognised qualification. Your training and qualification should be of a standard where you are eligible to join the respected hypnotherapy organisations and you can be insured for professional indemnity insurance.

 

You will want your training to give you enough practical experience so that you are competent, safe and confident enough to start practising as a professional hypnotherapist when you qualify. Your training should give you the basics of how to start and run a hypnotherapy practice as currently (2022) there are no employed positions as hypnotherapists.

 

If you want to become a hypnotherapist don’t just pick what looks quick, cheap and easy – pick what gives people the best and safest results and seems respected by the industry as a whole.

CPHT prides itself on the extensive post-graduate training options that we provide. These include:

  • Continual professional development (CPD) courses of varying lengths. These are led by working therapists and experts in the field and provide further in-depth knowledge on topics such as fertility, working with children, bookkeeping, mindfulness, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder to name but a few. Courses are delivered via live video conferencing or face to face sessions.
  • The Advanced Hypnotherapy Diploma (AHD). This qualification is provided only by the Clifton Practice and has been accredited by the NCFE as having measurable learning outcomes that have been benchmarked at Level 5 (using Ofqual’s Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF) level descriptors). It is currently the highest Hypnotherapy qualification available in the UK.
  • The Supervisor Diploma. This is also a level 5 diploma and trains experienced therapists to the level of being able to supervise others, helping them to grow as both therapists and business owners.
