This award will equip you with the knowledge and skills to be a competent and confident hypnotherapist / psychotherapist.  You will learn not only how to use hypnosis but also how to apply a variety of psychotherapeutic techniques. Full details of this award can be found in our prospectus.  Some of the interventions and methods you will learn include: How to induce, deepen and terminate trance, Ericksonian hypnosis, how to take a case history, treatment planning, techniques of hypnotic anaesthesia, regression, handling abreactions, ego strengthening, utilisation and how to use hypnosis with children.

Hypnotherapy and psychotherapy naturally co-exist in the therapy room.  Whereas hypnotherapy involves dealing with the client’s subconscious mind, psychotherapy involves communication on a conscious level; hence it’s portrayal as a ‘talking therapy’.  It therefore makes sense that a therapeutic relationship will involve both conscious and subconscious dialogue.  There are a number of approaches and theories that we teach, including cognitive behavioural, humanistic, psychodynamic and solution focused.

We also cover the work of Freud and Jung, in addition to behavioural psychology and personality types.All our trainers are experienced hypnotherapists, counsellors and psychotherapists.  The course Directors, Alan Cooper & Carole Wan, have been in practice since 1992.  Their expertise in helping clients over almost twenty years means that they have a wealth of experience and client cases to draw on during training, covering every aspect of therapy that students may encounter.
