The subconscios mind will always answer you if you trust it.

Use no willpower. Instead, visualize the desired end and the state of freedom it produses. You will find your intellect trying to get in the way, trying to find ways to solve the problem and impose those ways on your subconscios.

When Imagination and Will are in conflict, your Imagination invariably gains the day.

When the Will and the Imagination are in agreement, one multiplies by the other.

Emile Coue

To make our training accessible to as wide a range of participants as possible we offer two types of training format, the part time flexible weekend or the intensive format.

Part time weekend course runs over 10 intermittent weekends spread over 10 months period. It's 125 face to face hours (9.30am - 5pm with 45min lunch break and 2x15 min tea breaks) plus 350 hours home study - involving reading, case histories, writing essays and scripts etc.

The Intensive course runs over three weeks - Monday to Friday.

This is probably one of the best, in depth courses in Clinical Hypnotherapy in Britain. Consisting of a mixture of theory and practice, the course explores all the main aspects of hypnosis - providing a very solid and broad base and techniques including some pychostherapeutic techniques for treating a very wide range of disorders - psychological, emotional and physical. The material is presented simply with a lots of scripts for use. About half the time on each day is spent practising techniques.

The successful completion of the Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy would make graduates eligible for Practitioner registration within GHR and the Hypnotherapy Section of the CHNC.
