Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy / Dip NLP

Our clinical hypnotherapy course is delivered in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere over 15 live training days and 600 hours total study.

Hypnotherapist with a client

We assume no prior knowledge and you'll have everything you need to work with the public as a competent, ethical and successful clinical hypnotherapist, bringing about effective, lasting change in your clients. Some health funds cover hypnotherapy and you will be able to obtain a health fund provider number.

The course is variously accredited or recognised by the following associations, giving you choice in where you apply for practising membership:

AHA - Australian Hypnotherapists Association (the oldest and largest independent hypnotherapy association in Australia).
ASCH - Australian Society of Clinical Hypnotherapists.
AACHP - Australian Association of Clinical Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy.
IHA - International Hypnosis Association.
GHSC - General Hypnotherapy Standards Council which runs the UK's largest hypnotherapy register (the 'General Hypnotherapy Register') which has over 3,000 members, UK, Australia, and International.

The trainers, Paul Peace PhD and Karen Bartle MSc, are very experienced and highly qualified therapists and trainers, well-respected in their field.

We provide the following qualifications in one combined course:
Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy
Diploma in NLP

This is a very practical hypnotherapy training with an emphasis on being able to do hypnotherapy and NLP.

Groups are small, ensuring you have lots of individual attention.

Hypnotherapy student group

Course materials include: a carefully written and substantial course manual, client handouts, a client assessment form, sample contract and many other useful materials. These resources, as well as marketing advice, will support you, extend your learning and help you on the road to success long after qualification.

Our investment in you also includes feedback on individual homework questions rather than generic feedback on a whole module, ensuring a great learning experience.

We also run short hypnotherapy courses for continuing professional development and an Advanced Diploma in Hypnotherapy that will take your knowledge and skills to a higher level.

We have attracted students from a very wide variety of backgrounds. Here are some examples: clinical nurse specialist, plasterer, psychotherapist, counsellor, dentist, accountant, dietician, admin manager, marketing and salespeople, personal trainer, life coach, warehouse operative, executive recruitment manager, support worker, complimentary therapists, unemployed, redundant, IT consultant, web designer, teacher, customer service advisor, psychologist...

Ages have ranged from 22 to 69 years. We have also taught two students who were expecting a baby half way through the course. Both attended every module and used hypnotic techniques to help them relax while giving birth!

If you really want to do something you find a way to make it happen!

Testimonials / reviews

Clare Longstaffe, Hypnotherapist I trained with Paul and Karen for both my Diploma and Advanced Diploma in Hypnotherapy. The first diploma gave me a solid grounding in Hypnotherapy and NLP because it was thorough, very well resourced and included a lot of practical work. From there, I was able to confidently develop my skills within my own Hypnotherapy practice. I received excellent advice and support from Karen and Paul through supervision, their encouragement for me to think creatively about issues, ultimately leading me to complete their Advanced diploma. Karen and Paul have a down to earth, friendly approach and are experts in their field. Their work is infused with professional integrity and I can thoroughly recommend their courses to those interested in this path. — Clare Longstaffe, Hypnotherapist

Understandably, many people find choosing a hypnotherapy course confusing.

Some schools are not upfront about what they offer, making it a forensic exercise. Others have confusing websites and products. Different schools also make contradictory claims.

We remember being in this position. There are so many things to consider. Still, it is better to get the decision right, and exit as a competent practitioner, than to lose time and money retraining.

In this book, we've done our best to pick through it all, as unbiased as humanly possible. We don't tell you what you should choose, but instead, show you what the options are and the dis/advantages.

Your email is safe with us. You'll receive interesting materials about hypnotherapy and you can unsubscribe easily. We feel confident you won't regret reading this!
