Intensive Hypnosis Courses

Hypnotherapy ‘Intensive’ courses:

NCTH Ltd CPD (Continued Professional Development) certificates are awarded after each ‘Intensive’ course on the completion of a worksheet and a learning diary.  Some ‘Intensives’ are CERTA accredited.

‘Intensive’ Courses Cost: £170 per weekend (2 days training) some may be priced differently due to being longer than a weekend and/or being available through e-learning. There is an additional £35 accreditation fee for all CERTA accredited ‘Intensives’.

These courses are suitable for anyone interested in expanding their skills in hypnotherapy/counselling in particular areas of interest.  ‘Intensive’ courses also include other related topics of interest e.g. counselling skills, coaching/motivational interviewing and CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy) which a Hypnotherapist/Counsellor can add to their ‘toolbag’. Our range of courses continue to expand and be developed.


There are no formal entry requirements for these courses other than a natural progression of learning and understanding through previous  studies in hypnotherapy/counselling (or related).

NCTH learners are eligible to undertake ‘Intensive’ courses on successful completion of the Diploma course. Students who have completed appropriate level training elsewhere may also be eligible to continue their professional development through:

    •    demonstration of accredited prior learning – the knowledge and understanding of common hypnosis inductions, deepeners and hypnotherapy techniques are generally necessary for this level of training.  However, some ‘Intensives’ are suitable for those who haven’t trained in Hypnotherapy but are using counselling or other related psychotherapeutic techniques within their work.

Learners who have studied Hypnotherapy, counselling or ‘other’ interventions elsewhere are welcome to telephone initially for an informal chat to determine the suitability of the course for them.
