Everything you need to know

About You as a Hypnotherapist

Being a hypnotist is a highly rewarding career. There are no pre-requisites to train, all you need is a willingness and a desire to learn.


There are many different reasons for learning hypnosis & NLP. For some the qualifications are used to set up their own full time hypnotherapy practice, or develop a second income.


Others however, put their learning to a different use. These are people looking to enhance their communication skills, increase their confidence and look after their own mental health.


In today’s fast paced, high stress environments, more and more people are finding it difficult to cope. All of the skills learned will unconsciously be incorporated in whatever the individual does. When we are introduced to enhanced ways of behaving, we cannot NOT use them.


The ability to relax properly, be aware of damaging thought processes, develop positive thinking styles and effectively use our resources is invaluable, for oneself and to pass to others.


Demand for effective Hypnotherapists & NLP Practitioners is increasing year-on-year especially now in 2021 in light of current health issues and global mental health concerns. The media has increased public awareness of the varying efficacies of different therapies and people are seeking brief, solution-focused therapy that can help them quickly. Training with the Hypnowoman is through intensive practical training, giving you everything you need to set up in practice immediately thereafter.

Our carefully constructed stories, using humour and plenty of everyday examples will bring to life all of the essential elements you need to qualify as one of the best Hypnotherapists there is. The course is interactive and informative with clear presentations, simple instructions for exercises and numerous opportunities to practice what you learn.


On successful completion of all assessments students will be issued with:

  • Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy (DHyp)

  • Certificate in Master Hypnotism (CMH)

  • Certified Practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming (CPNLP)

This entitles you to use the following letters after your name:

  • CMH

  • DHyp


Practitioner Level

Courses can be accredited at Practitioner Level by the GHSC where they demonstrate that they meet all learning outcomes required to ensure their graduates comply with relevant National Occupational Standards (NOS) for Hypnotherapy as set down by Skills for Health with an appropriate ratio of face to face training and teaching through other methods. The Hypnotherapy NOS, together with a Core Curriculum, have now been re-mapped as national Training Standards and graduates of such courses are eligible for registration at Practitioner status within both the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR) and the profession’s voluntary regulator, the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).

Advanced Practitioner Level

Whilst every therapist listed within the GHR website has successfully completed a course of training accredited at Practitioner Level (or its equivalent) by the GHSC and we therefore consider them to be fully qualified to offer hypnotherapy services to the public, we nonetheless recognise the need to offer ongoing training opportunities to those practitioners who wish to further their knowledge and skills beyond this point. Hypnotherapy is progressing rapidly as a serious healthcare modality and as it does, so the demands for advanced training will undoubtedly increase. We are naturally keen to continue our efforts to ensure the highest standards and are confident that properly presented advanced courses will prove invaluable as continuing professional development, improving our services to the public. Such courses will invigorate hypnotherapists’ work by teaching new knowledge and techniques, developing critical and analytical thinking, cover less commonly taught presenting issues, more ways to motivate clients and maximise success, and sophisticated questioning skills. Additionally, they will teach practitioners how to deal with awkward clinical situations, advanced ethical and logical thinking, and the value of hypnotherapy research, as well as developing reflective practitioner skills.

Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy & NLP

Internationally Recognised Qualification Award

By ensuring that our course meets the strict criteria, set out by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council, we are able to offer students the Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy validated by The Council. In an attempt to standardise qualification descriptions across the UK, the Government have introduced the National Qualification Framework (NQF) which consists of numbered levels against which the standard of a course can be measured. In compliance with this criteria, this diploma would be classed as a level 4 qualification, making it one of the highest standard hypnotherapy training courses available. This School is certainly unique in offering three qualifications in one in an intensive three week format, Mon-Fri.  Delegates can also choose to take the Advanced Diploma upon successful completion, being one of the few schools worldwide qualified to teach to this level of Advanced Practitioner.

This course maintains the intensive aspect of study with format flexibility making the course accessible to everyone.  Presently, delegates can join in the classroom course via video conferencing link from anywhere in the world whilst present travel restrictions are in place.
