Diploma in Transpersonal Hypnotherapy

The course provides comprehensive knowledge of hypnosis and hypnotherapy, with the emphasis on transpersonal elements, drawn from several schools of thought. Transpersonal hypnosis is an ancient, yet modern perspective of the mind. It is a deep, profound, and highly effective healing practice for behavioural conditions. In this sense, it is a truly holistic therapy.

The aim of the course is to equip the student with the requirements of the National Occupational Standards for Hypnotherapy, with a firm basis in the elements of clinical hypnosis, combining NLP, parts therapy, meditation, mindfulness and past life regression therapy. The section on self-hypnosis enables the student (and the prospective therapist) to apply the principles in their own life. The course consists of 20 modules.

Diploma in Workplace Hypnotherapy

Increasingly, the workplace is becoming fraught with issues ranging from stress, bullying, fear of losing one’s job, to a pervading sense of anxiety and a feeling of failure. In addition, individuals have their own issues which they may present with, for one-to-one consultations.

Hypnosis in the workplace can successfully address many of these issues, enabling individuals to utilise their inner resources to overcome challenges and even thrive on them. This comprehensive course covers hypnotherapy for groups as well as individuals.

The aim of the course is to enable the successful student to establish a practice as a professional hypnotherapist, and to expand their practice to include the workplace in order to address certain issues unique to a business environment. The course consists of 18 modules.
