What study format is best for you?

We run our professional training programme in a range of formats to help fit in with your training needs and busy life – some people can only train once every few weeks on a Saturday, some people want a more intensive one-day a week course and we are now also offering a 3-week, full-time course.

Diploma in Hypnotherapy – 12-month, part-time course

Ideal if you have work commitments and want to make this a long-term plan, you can study for the Diploma in Hypnotherapy as part of a 12-month training course running one Saturday every three weeks.

Diploma in Hypnotherapy – 16-week, intensive part-time course

Ideal if you have other commitments but want to complete the course in a shorter period, the intensive 16-week course runs one day per week.

The Hypnotherapy Society are registered with the AVR as a talking therapy, which is a great credit to the Hypnotherapy profession.
