What does the course cover?
The Diploma course is approximately 120 hours classroom study. You are also required to read in between sessions, practice with volunteers and case studies and complete examinations including an open book exam, business plan and real life case studies to a total of 450 hours. The case studies are absolutely crucial in learning your skills and developing your confidence. The Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy explores a range of approaches, including solution focused, psychodynamic and CBT approaches to hypnotherapy and how to incorporate NLP and Mindfulness.  This provides you with an integrated approach which means you can respond to the precise requirements of your clients without limiting yourself to a single mode of working. Learning hypnotherapy ‘skills’ is only a part of the Diploma. Just as important, and covered in detail on the course, is how to set up your business and start making a living as soon as you qualify. This course places a considerable emphasis on getting your business up and running and after-care with our free peer supervision group. 

Establishing your business 

Many people emerge from their hypnotherapy training with some great skills and...with no idea how to work confidently with clients or establish their business. Throughout the course, we explore how to set up a practice which reflects your values and which will allow you to earn a comfortable living. Your 1-2-1 with Mark Ward helps you create a vision for your business and determine the practical steps which are required to bring that vision to life.
