Looking for a high quality, ethical, accredited vocational training course in hypnotherapy & NLP?  Our 'Flagship' course - the Diploma in Hypnotherapy & NLP is the course for you.

This course is an ideal starting point for those with no previous experience in hypnotherapy or the therapeutic use of NLP and who want to progress to a level of competence whereby they can practice professionally.  It also suits therapists and counsellors who work in different approaches and who want to add to their skills.


Those in the medical profession may also find the skills taught extremely relevant to their work and the course can act as a 'refresher' to those already qualified in hypnotherapy.


Our Diploma course is fully accredited at Practitioner Level by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council.  Successful graduates are able to join the GHSC's General Hypnotherapy Register and in doing so automatically obtain the additional General Qualification in Hypnotherapy Practice (GQHP).  Membership of the GHR enables hypnotherapists to obtain professional indemnity insurance - a vital prerequisite to professional practice.  Registrants with the General Hypnotherapy Register are also now entitled to register with the Hypnotherapy Section of the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC)











Our Diploma course consists of 20 days of lively, interactive classroom teaching spread over 10 weekends and we offer our Diploma level hypnotherapy & NLP training course in Chester, London & Belfast.
