Quick Facts

The HypnoTC Hypnotherapy Diploma is a comprehensive qualification that blends theory and practical applications. It gives students a sound foundational knowledge and real world, hands-on experience on which to develop their skill set whilst practicing hypnotherapy professionally.

This internationally recognised course meets and exceeds the UK Hypnotherapy National Occupational Standards and Core Curriculum requirements.

We have strategically designed the HypnoTC Diploma training to give you all the essential knowledge and practical experience that you need in order to set up and run your own professional hypnotherapy practice, confidently and competently.

What You'll Learn (Overview)

You will learn all about hypnosis and hypnotherapy, including several safe and highly effective ways to hypnotise clients, deepen and intensify the state of hypnosis, and wake people up.

Within the course, we cover a diverse range of effective and ethical hypnotherapy techniques, and both evidence-based and practice-based theories. These include analytical, cognitive, behavioural, Ericksonian, NLP, metaphorical and regression approaches.

Additionally, we recognise hypnotherapy is a business. We also teach you how to start, market and grow your thriving therapy practice.

Our key aim is for you to be a confident, competent hypnotherapist upon graduation.

Qualified elsewhere and not satisfied?

Unfortunately, not all hypnotherapy training is created equal!

If you have already taken a hypnotherapy course elsewhere with a different hypnotherapy training provider, and you:

We can help you. 

At HypnoTC, we make sure everyone receives the most thorough training possible. We frequently have candidates join us who’ve already completed a course with another school but have left feeling unconfident and under-qualified.

We offer our re-training/ upskilling service at a hugely discounted rate because we want you to become the best therapist you can be.

Course Structure

We teach you in a supportive classroom environment. Each tuition day includes lectures, presentations and discussions on hypnosis and hypnotherapy theory, together with practical demonstrations, group activities and lots of technique practice. Additional online materials supplement and go beyond the course notes. We give you 20 full days (9am-5pm) in the classroom. Training days are grouped into 10 separate training weekends over a duration of 10 months.

As well as attending class, students need to complete home study assignments and keep a coursework portfolio. Although personal study time varies according to individual needs, we suggest you allow between 8 to 10 hours each week for homework. Please note that homework is mandatory, and needs to be completed in order to receive your certifications.

Total tuition and study hours, including classroom time and all home study assignments, will total around 450 hours. The UK Core Curriculum indicates that face-to-face training must be at least 120 hours and home study must meet/ exceed 330 hours. Excluding breaks, our classroom teaching totals 130 hours.

Online Video Supplements

In addition to the detailed course manuals and in-person classroom teaching, you will also have access to our library of 80+ hypnotherapy training videos in our online Student Learning Centre.

Our Student Learning Centre videos complement the manuals and concepts covered in class. Wherever a longer lecture is required, rather than using valuable class time, we deliver it in video format. This means that we’re able to optimise your time in class for more practical and discussion based learning. 

The practical hypnosis and hypnotherapy techniques you learn and practice in class, also have video demonstrations, so that you are able to re-visit any methods as often as you wish.

These supplementary training videos have been specifically designed as a part of the HypnoTC diploma course and are an invaluable resource for use throughout the duration of the course.

Each weekend you are given homework assignments to support the material covered in class. Homework is individually marked and assessed by your tutor. Completion of ALL homework, including your HPD portfolio, is mandatory to pass the course and to receive your certification.

Entry Requirements

Previous Experience?

To join our Hypnotherapy Diploma Course, there is no need to know anything about hypnosis or hypnotherapy, or have any previous experience with therapy at all. In fact, we find that your willingness to learn and life experience can be more important than prior  knowledge of hypnosis or therapy. Complete beginners do well on our course!

We welcome other healthcare professionals. Hypnotherapy is a tremendous addition to the skill sets of psychologists, psychotherapists, counsellors, and life coaches.

No matter what you come to the course with, your mind-set and personality are what will truly set you apart.

Age?

There is an age restriction on our Hypnotherapy Diploma Course; you must have reached your 18th birthday prior to the exam date.

You will also need to be sufficiently emotionally mature to learn how to work with clients of all ages and backgrounds, who seek therapy for a broad range of topics.

These my include sexual problems, trauma, phobias, stress, chronic conditions and perhaps even terminal illness.

There is no upper age limit on this course – so if you’re a lively senior citizen, feel free to sign up. People of all ages (18+) are welcome.

Health?

Before applying for a place on this course, please let us know if you have experienced or currently experience any psychological, psychiatric, medical, physical or neurological disorder, including:

  • Psychosis
  • Bi-polar disorder
  • Depression
  • Uncontrolled panic attacks
  • Epilepsy
  • Significant past physical/ emotional trauma
  • If you have a pacemaker
  • Severe visual/ auditory impairment
  • If you are currently experiencing undiagnosed pain
  • If you are using medication that may impair your concentration

Language?

To join the course, you must be fluent in written and spoken English. 

You may struggle to keep up with the course if you cannot understand the language used within the training material or its delivery. If you think this could be a concern, please speak to us directly.

If you have an accent, then rest assured this can make you even more effective as a hypnotherapist, as long as you can be clearly understood.

Learning Differences?

We support learners with learning differences such as dyslexia. 

The course materials are usually supplied in black ink on white paper in a sans-serif font. We can print using pastel paper on request.

We are experienced in teaching learners with dyslexia, and supplement our course notes with additional learning aids.

Course Fees

Diploma FAQs

Do I need insurance to join the course?

Yes. All students are asked to obtain ‘student insurance’ before the start of weekend two. Details of our recommended insurance companies will be provided upon booking. Student hypnotherapy insurance is usually very affordable (around £30-45 per annum – guideline). 

Once qualified you can upgrade to full hypnotherapist insurance (they’ll need to see evidence of your qualification). Those students with a pre-existing therapy insurance policy may be able to add hypnotherapy to said policy – check with your insurance provider directly for clarification.

What happens if somebody fails the final exam?

Our diploma course is very comprehensive and you will be fully prepared for the final examination process.

Throughout the course you will be engaging with in-class activities, homework tasks and also a number of formal and informal mock exams. All of this practice will fully prepare you for your exams, and we’re here to support you all the way.

If it were to happen that you ended up requiring a re-sit, we’d give you the first re-sit absolutely free (additional re-sits, if required, would be at extra cost, as listed above in the ‘Course Fees’ section).

What if I miss a day/weekend?

If, for any reason, you miss a course day or weekend, we have a 1-to-1 catch up facility, so that you can meet with one of our tutors (either online or in person) in order to cover the material that you missed.

Catch up sessions are mandatory in order for you to make up your course hours and cover the training materials, in line with the UK Core Curriculum for Hypnotherapy.

As mentioned above in the ‘Course Fees – Extra Costs’ section, catch up sessions are at an additional cost which is not included in the standard course fee. If you miss over 2 days (10%) of the course, the normal catch up day fee (£90) is then succeeded by an ‘hourly fee’ of £45. This is in order to make up your hours to ensure that your training meets the UK Core Curriculum requirements. 

What if I don't complete my homework?

As mentioned above, completion of all homework is a mandatory requirement of the course. All homework activities must be completed (in a timely manner) in order for you to meet the UK Core Curriculum for hypnotherapy training and to receive your certification.

All homework must be completed and returned for marking before the final weekend of the course. If by the final course weekend, you still have outstanding homework (regardless of how well you do in the exam), you will not be eligible for certification.*

*Allowances can be made for students with exceptional circumstances.

Is this a legitimate, recognised hypnotherapy qualification?

Yes. The highly sought-after diploma qualification meets (and exceeds) the National Occupational Standards for Hypnotherapy and also the UK Core Curriculum for Hypnotherapy. The course has also been externally accredited by a number of professional organisations – click here to visit our Accreditations and Certification page.

Is there an intensive/1-to-1 option?

For those who cannot make it to the main course (dates above), or who wish to undertake the course in an ‘intensive’ format, we offer a number of 1-to-1 training options. However, due to the duration, the 1-to-1 training fee is significantly higher than the standard course fee.

To learn more about our 1-to-1 hypnotherapy training options click here for details.

Is there ongoing support and development available?

Yes. All students and graduates are able to access telephone and email support during and after qualification with us. We also have a private student forum, where students can engage with fellow students, past graduates and HypnoTC tutors for continued support and development.

We also advise our students and graduates to engage in supervision/mentoring and ongoing CPD (continuing professional development). This is not mandatory (by us), but some professional hypnotherapy associations require their members to do so. We have a number of supervision and CPD options available all year round. Check out the ‘Hypnotherapy Training’ tab on the main menu for more information.

Can I get a discount?

We offer a 10% discount for members of the armed forces (and ex-forces).
