To make our training accessible to as wide 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. The Intensive course runs over three weeks - Monday to Friday.

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.

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 psychotherapeutic techniques for treating a very wide range of disorders - psychological, emotional and physical. The material is presented simply with  lots of scripts for use. About half the time on each day is spent with theory and the other half of practising techniques.
