Hypnotherapy Diploma Course

Course Details

Why Learn Hypnotherapy?

The study of the mind is a fascinating subject and will suit those with an interest in psychology or counselling.

All hypnosis is, in essence, self-hypnosis, and very few people (if indeed, anyone at all) are incapable of being hypnotized. Therefore everyone can benefit in some way from hypnosis, provided they are guided by an experienced individual who understands the way the subconscious mind functions.

Thorough training in hypnosis is essential; dealing with someone's mind is an enormous responsibility and this Training Course in clinical hypnotherapy aims to provide comprehensive knowledge and professional training.


This Course is designed to teach you all you need to know to practice hypnotherapy competently and with total confidence. A large section of the Course is distance learning based, however the exercises contained in the (optional) workshops provide an excellent opportunity to put theory into practice.

You will practice inducing hypnosis and experimenting with different techniques until you find the ones that suit you, and you will receive invaluable feedback afterwards. The workshops, as well as being informative, also give you a chance to experience hypnosis for yourself.

Dates and Times

Some of the training is done on a one-to-one basis and mutually suitable dates and times can be arranged. Workshops are presently held twice yearly and students may attend as many times as they wish. Workshops are kept reasonably small (8 to 12 people at a time) to allow some individual attention for each participant.

Students traveling from further afield may consolidate their practical training into two days. These usually (but not always) take place after lesson five, by which time it is envisaged that sufficient knowledge will have been acquired to effectively induce a trance for a basic problem requiring suggestion therapy, (i.e. smoking or weight loss).

Course Contents

The home study section is designed to be completed at your own pace - with a recommended minimum of three months. On enrolment you will be provided with a reading list of five books and whilst not essential to the Course, it is anticipated that you will find each one of these books a valuable source of additional information and inspiration.

Included within the Course is a glossary of hypnotic terms and a specially chosen selection of cassettes to give you another chance to experience hypnosis for yourself. The benefits of these cassettes are three-fold - they will help you to experience being in hypnosis and so recognize similar signs in your own clients - they will show you how to formulate your own inductions and create your own cassettes - and a special "Confidence for Therapists" cassette will help to programme your own mind for your successful future career! A set of over fifty hypnotherapy scripts is also included.

The Resource Section in Lesson Eight contains samples of leaflets, GP introductory letter, press release, advertisements and various forms that you will need to help you once you are started on your new career.


The fee for the Course is available on the ordering page and offers excellent value. No other Course offers such individual support and advice both throughout the Course and at any time after enrolment (for no additional cost). You will be advised on the best insurance deals, recommended journals, legal requirements and tips for setting up your business.


Your progress will be constantly monitored with short interim question papers to ensure you have understood the course content. Case histories will be presented to you for discussion or short essays regarding possible therapeutic approaches and valuable feedback will be given. If you need it, then help and advice is available 24 hours a day.

If you wish to promote your business on the Internet you can submit your details on our new referrals page which is under construction.


On completion of the Course there is a written examination that can be completed in your own time. There is also a short assessment interview and you will be required to submit an induction tape of your own making, and induce hypnosis with another person in the presence of the examiner.

Overseas students or those who are unable to attend in person for the examination are required to complete a slightly lengthier written paper in place of the in-vivo consultations.
The examination is optional. However students who have not completed the examination will receive only the Certificate of Completion.

Remember, individual help and advice is available throughout.


The Diploma of Hypnotherapy is issued to successful students on completion of the examination. There is no charge for the examination. Whilst there is no legislation governing the practice of hypnotherapy, your clients will expect to see evidence that you have trained and qualified in this field and the Diploma will give you confidence in your own ability, knowing that you have learned all that you need to know to practice your skills effectively. All schools, boards, colleges of hypnotherapy are equal and no ONE has any credence over the other.

On completion of the examination you will be fully entitled to use the designatory letters DHp after your name - Diploma in Hypnotherapy - and if for any reason a student does not meet the requirements of the examination they will receive constructive feedback and advice to enable them to succeed in the future. Successful students will be recommended for membership of the Professional Hypnotherapy Association.

If you decide to become a hypnotherapist you will undoubtedly find it an interesting and rewarding occupation. You will meet all sorts of people from all walks of life - no two cases will be the same. You may be asked to appear on radio, TV. or to write articles for magazines or newspapers.
Once qualified you can set up your private practice whenever you like. A section of the Course covers all that you need to know to do this successfully. You can decide on your own fees, currently anything between £25.00 to £100.00 a session, depending on the area in which you choose to work.

Personal Advice

If you need any additional information regarding this Course, or if you would like to meet me to discuss any aspect of the Course further then please do not hesitate to telephone me for an appointment on 01302 786977.


It is recognized that although this Course is fully comprehensive and will teach you all you need to know to practice hypnotherapy successfully, there may still be times when you need extra advice and support after setting up your practice. A support line is set up in order that you may do this and you will be given personal assistance with your enquiry, free of charge, for two years after qualifying.


Your training in Hypnotherapy is an investment for the future. You will have provided yourself with another means of income for the rest of your life. There is no upper age limit for Hypnotherapists and many people continue in this profession for as long as they desire. The cost of the Course will be covered within the first few months of practice.


If for any reason you are not completely happy with the Course contents after receiving each Lesson then I will refund your Course fee in full, provided the material is returned intact, within two weeks of receiving it.

What Students Are Saying
"I really enjoyed this course."

"I really enjoyed this course. It introduced me to a wide range of subjects which I found both interesting and challenging. I particularly liked the depth that each module went into. Each module was delivered really quickly and I was also impressed by how quickly each end of module test was marked. I found the feedback very helpful. I am now looking forward to setting up my hypnotherapy business and helping my clients using the skills that I have learnt. I will continue to use Hypnotic World and am looking forward to enhancing my knowledge by attending some of their workshops."

"I would recommend this course to anyone with an interest in hypnotherapy."

"I have absolutely loved doing the Hypnotic World course, I previously studied hypnotherapy but didn’t feel the course I did covered everything thoroughly so I looked into Hypnotic World. From the first module I have loved it, it is so in depth but it's also written in an interesting way so you don’t get bored. I now feel really confident about what I am doing. The modules have pushed me and my knowledge of hypnotherapy to really, really think outside the box for every scenario, which has helped me so much. Faith has been amazing, if ever I've needed help, nothing is ever too much trouble... I would recommend this course to anyone with an interest in hypnotherapy."

Sophie Shaw (Completed June, 2022)

"I am really pleased I picked Hypnotic World"

"The course was so informative and very well structured, I am really pleased I picked Hypnotic World to gain my Diploma. Each module leads the learner onto the next module with curiosity and interest and with the added benefit of the student being able to refer back, it all falls into place and begins to make sense, while deepening one's understanding. The course delves into hypnosis and hypnotherapy in a way that anyone with a genuine interest in Hypnosis would find captivating. I would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone and have done so a few times now since finishing my final module and passing the Diploma. Well done and many thanks Hypnotic World and especially Faith, my course tutor. "
