Hypnotherapy Course Comparison

Hypnotherapy Course Comparison

With a plethora of hypnotherapy courses available, choosing the training path that meets your individual and professional needs can be a challenge. We want you to feel confident in selecting the training option that will most effectively help you to achieve your goals as a new therapist.

Choosing a Course

When making a commitment to hypnotherapy training, students make an investment of time, energy and fees in their chosen course.

Therefore, it is essential that prospective students learn hypnotherapy with an established and respected training school dedicated to fostering therapists who are knowledgeable and capable, and who are empathetic to their clients’ needs.

Below we look at the learning approaches of Hypnotic World’s two courses - our distance-learning course and live, tutor-led training - and compare the advantages and limitations of each option:
