Hypnotherapy Certificate Course



The Certificate in Clinical Hypnotherapy has been Assessed and Validated at Foundation Level by The General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (UK). Successful graduates are eligible for registration with The General Hypnotherapy Register (the GHSC’s Registering Agency) at Affiliate status.


Course Description

The aim of this course is to provide a thorough foundation in hypnosis, hypnotherapy and self-hypnosis in particular, based on the principles of clinical hypnosis and NLP. Upon successful completion of the course, the student will be able to apply self-hypnosis in his or her own life in order to attain goals, effect positive behavioural change, and resolve issues which had proved difficult in the past. This course is ideal for those whose aim is personal development, rather than to practise as a Clinical Hypnotherapist. The course is not designed to equip students with the skills required to practise as a clinical hypnotherapist.
The course entails home study and practical sessions.
