The next Professional Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy starts 4th October 2014 and finishes July 4th – 5th 2015

Our one year part time hypnotherapy and psychotherapy course combines hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, NLP, solution focused therapy, advanced counselling skills, and leading edge proven energy techniques like the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). You will develop the confidence and skill to help people with a whole range of problems. From anxiety and depression to addictions, weight and fertility issues you will be able to help your clients thrive. The holistic, yet science based teachings are centered on four principles

  • The hypnotic state is an innate part of human psychology. Understanding how hypnosis affects our emotions and physical state, provides a key to well being.
  • We come to this world with a set of physical and emotional needs, which if met, help us to flourish and if not, can cause mental and physical illness. This holistic approach helps people get better and stay well.
  • Solution focused or brief therapy is highly effective in achieving positive change in a wide variety of emotional and physical health issues.
  • We teach what you need to know to be an effective therapist capable of dealing with human suffering at many levels. You will quickly get people back on track and experiencing lasting beneficial change. We do not teach lots of historical theory and dated principles that can clutter the road to healing.

Learn with a highly experienced, professional and friendly team

And although you have to put the effort in, we have a wealth of experience in getting the skills across in an easy to absorb and enjoyable way.

How much work is involved?

There are ten weekends, if you miss one you will simply be required to write up notes on what was taught.

Learn skills to get ahead in your business career
Listen to how the skills learnt on the course helped Sara be a better HR manager.

And here is Karen, a project manager whose advanced people skills enabled her to treble her salary in 1 year

The past year has been totally life changing. Originally I signed up to do the Within-Sight course just to create a potential career path for me in a field that I am fascinated by and that I thought I would be good at, which it did, but it also did so much more than I ever could have asked for. Whilst learning in a safe, none judgmental relaxed and fun environment I was inadvertently given the tools and knowledge to be able to negotiate a happy and fulfilled life. Really learning about what it takes to be happy, and in turn learning how to teach that to others really is priceless. From my friendships to my relationships with my family and partner, everything has received a positive impact. I find myself talking to everyone about the things I have learnt on the course! So whether it’s for personal or professional reasons, this course is worth every penny.

From here I am looking at moving into the Drug and Drink rehabilitation sector where I hope to be accepted onto an apprenticeship course and continue my learning. Tessa London 2010

"After completing the course with Jill which was the most fantastic informative thing I have ever done I felt full of knowledge and confidence to go it alone and start my own business". Kirsty, 2011

“I found the course manual to so be well organised with overhead sheets and informative handouts relating to each subject that we covered. This enabled me to have a quick overview and then to follow up the topic in more detail. The hypnotic techniques are all on separate sheets rather than integrated into the text which is really helpful when using them with clients. We were able to add to the manuals each time we attended the course which kept me focused on the topic in hand rather than having too much information at one time. The manual builds up in a logical order and this underpinned the learning for each session”. Jinty, 2011

This course has made an enormous impact on me personally as I gained insight into myself, my personality, basic needs and most importantly my emotional intelligence…..This has significantly improved my relationship with my children and given me the tools and understanding to manage my own feelings and actions. Whilst I will not be using the skills in a professional capacity, they will impact every interaction I have with people from now on, making it one of the best £3.000 I have ever spent.
Nick, Hove, 2009

Thoroughly enjoyed the course and would highly recommend both the course and Jill, our extremely knowledgeable tutor. I am already using the qualification professionally.....The training has been hugely beneficial to me both personally and professionally. I wish Jill and the course much success and hope that others get to benefit from the training as much as I have.
Sally, Hove, 2009

I never intended to do a diploma in psychotherapy and hypnotherapy so in many ways I had no expectations. It was a personal commitment to myself to do something that I was interested in. Having done the Life Coaching course with Mary Condell, I really enjoyed using my brain to learn about material that wasn't related to my job per say. I knew I didn't want to be in HR forever so in doing the diploma, I felt it would give me choices later in life. However within a very short period of time I was hooked! I found every aspect of it fascinating and my attention was captured from the word go. A major factor in the latter was Jill. Jill is truly an inspirational trainer, highly qualified, intuitive and with such an amazing energy. Jill makes the diploma what it is. I feel like I have found my calling and the fact I can now set up as a psychotherapist is beyond words. The diploma has been far more than a qualification to me it has been a life changing journey.
