Certificate in Clinical Hypnosis Syllabus

This is probably the most comprehensive introduction to hypnosis available in the UK today. Many years of research and practise have gone into the creation of this programme, enabling many to graduate successfully onto the Practitioner Diploma in Clinical Hypnosis course and eventually into full practice as hypnotherapists. The Certificate in Clinical Hypnosis course is a complete course – in its own right – the structure of which provides not only powerful “stand alone” self-improvement techniques for individuals who perhaps do not wish to take their hypnotherapy training studies any further, but also the knowledge and expertise vital for those wishing to progress into a new career.
