Hypnotherapy is now considered to be one of the fastest growing professions in the United Kingdom and CPHT has enabled hundreds of students to become successful hypnotherapists. If you intend to make hypnotherapy your new career, part-time or full-time, we believe you have come to the right place.

Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD)

The HPD course consists of approximately 120 hours duration of classroom study, plus practice between sessions and required reading over a period of 10 months. Successful graduation leads to a full Diploma qualification (DSFH) and the nationally accredited (NCFE) Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD). Students are assessed throughout their training and there will be a requirement for a practical assessment.

At the end of their studies, students are asked to submit a portfolio, compiled throughout their training, for assessment both within CPHT and externally, leading to the Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD).

HPD has been accredited by NCFE as having measurable learning outcomes that have been benchmarked at Level 4 using Ofqual’s Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF) level descriptions. HPD Course contents

Advanced Hypnotherapy Diploma (AHD)
For HPD hypnotherapy graduates we also offer Advanced Courses, Career Professional Development (CPD) and supervision. CPHT graduates may continue their professional development while in practice and achieve a further award of the Advanced Hypnotherapy Diploma (AHD) (Level 5 equivalence). For more information on the Advanced Hypnotherapy Diploma Course please see: The Advanced Hypnotherapy Diploma Website.

What is Solution Focused Hypnotherapy?

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy uses practical, modern, and well researched strategies to help people make significant, positive changes in their lives in a relatively short period of time. Working with Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, the Solution Focused Hypnotherapist looks at what the client wants to achieve rather than on the problem(s) that prompted them to seek change.

The approach focuses on the present and future and not on the past. The Hypnotherapist asks the client to consider their preferred future, for instance, what would be better if the problem had improved? What would have changed? This enables the client’s possible solutions to become more apparent and worked towards. Hypnosis itself reduces anxiety and this is done very simply through relaxation and visualisation, allowing the client to focus on the positive aspects of their lives that encourages a shift in perspective.

Through working with the client, Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help with Confidence and Self Esteem problems. It can also help (if necessary in conjunction with medication) in the treatment of Depression and Anxiety, including Panic Attacks, Agoraphobia and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Minor Phobias such as spiders, water, flying and public speaking can also be minimised, along with painful memories and traumatic experiences.
