Train to Become a Hypnotherapist
Heather is delighted to now be running the Scottish branch of the UK Academy of Therapeutic Arts and Sciences (known as the UK Academy). We now offer an 11-module training course for those wishing to train as a hypnotherapist. This course is expected to run once per year, split over 1 weekend per month for 10 months.
- Introduction to Hypnotherapy
- Traditional Hypnotherapy Practice
- Self-Hypnosis, pain and IBS
- Smoking and weight control
- The therapeutic process
- Anxiety and stress
- Ericksonian Hypnosis
- Practice Management
- Neuro-Linguistic Programming
The next training is due to start in September 2017 in Polmont, within the Haypark Business Centre, Marchmont Avenue, Polmont, Falkirk FK2 0NZ.
This is a professional-level qualification, and it is expected that you should demonstrate a good level of education with Higher-level qualifications or equivalent vocational experience. However for those wishing to re-train but not holding formal qualifications, a desire to learn and enthusiasm to participate will be taken into account.
You will also require basic computer skills as you will be required to submit a portfolio of work on completion of training.
In order to be considered for the course, you will need to submit a CV and write a short statement of your personal philosophy. You will also need to pass a short interview, demonstrating the appropriate skills to work with people who are sometimes vulnerable.
On completion of the course you will gain:
- Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD)
- Diploma in Clinical and Advanced Hypnosis (Dip CAH)
- Practitioner Certificate in Neuro-Liguistic Programming (PNLP)
This will entitle you to use the qualifications HPD, Dip (CAH) and PNLP after your name.
The HPD is the nationally recognised qualification for hypnotherapists and is externally verified by the NCFE at NVQ level 4.
Specialist certification in treating Anxiety, Smoking Cessation, and Ericksonian Hypnotherapy can be added at a later date through additional portfolio submissions at no additional cost.
The course costs £2200 in total and constitutes over 120 in-classroom hours, and on completion of the portfolio accounts for over 450 hours of training, providing you with the skills to successfully build and run your own hypnotherapy practice. You will also receive free student membership of the National Council for Hypnotherapy (the largest Professional Body for Hypnotherapy) and free supervision while in training.
Interviews for the next course take place throughout the year. On successful completion of interview a deposit of £220 will be required to secure your place on the course.
A recommended reading list is available upon request, and while purchase from this list is not compulsory, you may find the texts useful during your studies. There is no end exam but in order to successfully obtain the qualifications students are observed throughout the course and submit a portfolio of work at the end to receive their certification allowing them to practice as hypnotherapists.
