Hypnotherapy Foundation Course

building on belief

Hypnotherapy Foundation Course 

Accredited by The National Hypnotherapy Society and CERTA (formally known as YHOCN – Yorkshire and Humber Open College Network)

Course Cost: £480 + £35 exam fee

The Hypnotherapy Foundation course is held over 3 weekends in the classroom where students learn the basics of inducing hypnosis safely and appropriately. Our Foundation course allows learners to practice the basics of hypnosis including inductions, deepening techniques and hypnotic phenomena under the watchful eye of the lecturers. We believe that this is the best preparation for further studies and provides learners with the basic skills needed to induce hypnosis safely and appropriately.

There is an element of continuous assessment of learners throughout the course and during the final weekend learners will undertake a multiple choice written and, practical exam. On successful completion of the Foundation course learners will be awarded the NCTH Ltd. Foundation Certificate in Therapeutic Hypnosis and will be invited to apply for Associate/Student Membership of The National Hypnotherapy Society.

The Foundation Course is now also accredited by CERTA – learners have the option to gain this additional accreditation.  This involves completing portfolio based worksheets and learning diaries in addition to the multiple choice written and practical exam.

Learners are eligible to undertake the Diploma course on successful completion of the Foundation course. Students who have completed Foundation training elsewhere may also be eligible to progress onto the Diploma course through either/or:

    •    successful completion of our Foundation course exam

    •    demonstration of accredited prior learning

Learners who have studied elsewhere are welcome to telephone initially for an informal chat in order to determine their most suitable entry level.
