Professional Advanced Courses

These are open to any hypnotherapy professional qualified to practice (evidence of qualifications should be provided when applying). Certain courses are open to non-hypnotherapists already qualified in a psychotherapeutic discipline (evidence of qualifications should be provided on booking).

Excellent course!!!. I‘ve never had so much fun learning something so valuable. A priceless tool that I can use in my life and to help others. I have applied it to myself and already noticed huge changes in my confidence.

I have a clearer understanding of the model of psychological health. I have applied it in both my personal and professional life and I now live by these principles. My patients love it and are excited by these tools to tackle emotional disturbance. As a result I am getting more patients through word of mouth. It was an excellent course.

This was the best course I have ever done. The lectures were consistently excellent and extremely enjoyable. I feel as if I have a far greater understanding of psychological problems and thus am no longer just applying techniques and hoping. The entire principles have already changed my entire approach to treating patients. I have applied what I have learned to myself and my patients. The effects have been profound and excellent. I enjoyed the environment and all the ‘ah ha’ moments.

Excellent! One of the best learning experiences of my life.

As a person who has been treated for depression for 23 years, this course has given me numerous tools to deal with my own low self-esteem, confidence and the depression; and has made a huge difference to me personally. As a bonus, I feel well skilled to help others, as a therapist in the future.

I absolutely loved the course! It was exactly what I was looking for. It ties in perfectly with much of my own research into personal development.

Excellent, well run course – first class support from all the lecturers – in a caring, supportive environment. I feel very privileged to have had such excellent tutoring/assistance.
