We have been following news of the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus around the world with concern, and are keen to limit the spread of the virus to protect those most vulnerable.
The safety and wellbeing of our customers, course students and tutors is our priority, and we have been consulting with Hypnotic World's tutors and students to decide the most effective steps to take in response to the outbreak at this time.
In line with government guidance that people should begin practising social distancing (learn more) in an effort to combat the spread of the coronavirus, we can confirm the following changes to our training schedules for the duration of the pandemic:
Practitioner Diploma in Hypnotherapy Course
- Courses starting on or prior to April 18th, 2020:
Courses in progress or starting prior to April 18th will proceed as scheduled. However, our tutors have agreed that video conferencing may be the most appropriate form of delivery at the present time. We have contacted the GHR, which accredits the course, to clarify the requirements for training accreditation at this time. The GHR and the CNHC, have issued statements permitting the use of electronic training delivery for practical-based courses for the duration of the coronavirus outbreak.
- Courses starting after April 18th, 2020:
In the event that social distancing measures are still recommended at this time, these courses will be held online using Zoom. The relevant accrediting bodies will honour the membership admission to students who successfully complete the course.
Professional Hypnotherapy Course
As this course is home study-based, the course is running as normal. However, students wanting to book optional practical training with a practical trainer may wish to postpone this in agreement with the individual trainer.
We will contact attendees to detail changes to any workshops by email. Please contact us with any workshop-specific enquiries that you may have.
We sincerely regret the disruption that recent developments have caused to students' training, but appreciate your understanding during this period. I know that students will be keen to complete their studies and to begin practising hypnotherapy, and would like you to know that we will be here to help you to achieve your training goals as soon we are able to once more.
At Hypnotic World, we have introduced home-based working where possible and will continue to offer our other resources as normal. I hope that you are also able to take the appropriate precautions to limit the contagion of the virus wherever you live.
If you have any questions regarding any of these changes, please do not hesitate to contact either your course tutor or Hypnotic World directly here.
