Welcome from the Course Director

Welcome to my introductory course on Clinical Hypnotherapy.

Our courses are ideal for delegates looking for educational and vocational courses providing professional qualifications, a leading edge course syllabus and a level of knowledge, proficiency and competence unrivalled by any other school or college.

If you are a professional student looking for a market leading course that will enable you to work professionally within the personal and professional development arena then this course is for you.

All our courses are aimed at the professional student either full or part time with between 3 months and 2 years dedicated to learning their new craft and entering the industry as a practicing professional Clinical Hypnotherapist.

This course is an introductory course which will teach you foundation level skills, knowledge, theory and clinical application of clinical hypnotherapy. With our introductory course range we recommend 3 months of study although there are no deadlines.

Today it is acknowledged that Clinical Hypnosis is one of the most powerful behavioural change strategies available today. It is commonly used within the therapuetic and coaching arena to achieve personal growth, business success, or promote positive change.

This online course has been designed to give you a introductory level introduction to clinical hypnotherapy. The course syllabus and structure will give you an introductory view into the world of clinical hypnotherapy and NLP and enable you to successfully complete a practitioner level case study assessment at the end of the course.

We have used a powerful combination of audio, video, self-study, personal assignments and an extensive reading list so you can complete our program in your own time at your own pace. You will experience very quickly as you work through the course, how simple, effective, meaningful and lasting change can be.

Our ethos and core beliefs are based upon the fact that every individual can achieve unlimited success in their life, unlocking their full potential and ultimately getting the life they want.

All our courses work on the principle that individual success comes down to the right balance of focus, control, confidence, competence and taking action.

We have ensured you will get the most from this online program by catering for all learning needs and styles. To ensure we get this right, we have included reading exercises, audio, short video clips, video technique demonstrations and access to our Clinical Hypnotherapy manuals used on our certified face to face courses.

We like to support you throughout the course so please complete the section summary and update forms and email them each month to your tutor. This way you can provide us with monthly feedback and we can ensure you are fully supported throughout the course. This support includes monthly email support and live tutor calls so together we can ensure you get the best out of the course.

By following the teachings this course gives you, you will have the secrets and top tips I have used over the last 20 years as one of the UK's leading Clinical Hypnotherapists and NLP coaches.

I have worked with world-champion sportsmen, West End stars, government advisors, politicians, the CEOs of some of the world's largest companies and the one thing i have found to be true with all of them is that they all run the same programmes, face the same challenges and are coached successfully by the same techniques: the techniques i am sharing with you on this course.

The best advice i can give you at this early stage is to be confident and take your time in getting the most out of the course you can.

You are entering a wonderful industry where you will witness such change in human beings you won't believe it possible.

I have seen the leading West End star, who cried that he would never perform again, get back on stage at the Palladium and give the performance of his life.

i have worked with a girl who had been blind for six months and who medical professionals were unable to help with their non-organic hypothesis. Following an NLP breakthrough session, she regained 90% of her sight.

I have seen the young chap who couldn't fly, although his job depended on it. Following an NLP session, I got him onto a plane. However, this was no ordinary flight - it was filmed live on national television.

Clinical Hypnotherapy, NLP and Life Coaching prove time and time again nothing is impossible and everything is possible.

For me, the most exciting part of my NLP, Hypnotherapy and Life Coaching journey was this bit now that you are entering. The beginning. I gave up a job as a director at Barclays Bank to become a life Coach, Clinical Hypnotherapist and NLP Practitioner and never looked back.

I hope you will love every minute of this wonderful journey and like me never look back.

Will Carling taught me many years ago, success is 90% confidence. I believe he was right. That was my first experience of how we can use the mind to achieve unprecedented and unlimited personal and professional success.

We have used the following symbols to guide you through the programme so that you know what to do and when to do it all in your own time.

To ensure all our courses offer our students the highest level of proficiency, knowledge and competence we ensure we achieve the standards laid down within the UK'S National Occupational Standards model.
