Advanced Practitioner Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy

The Advanced Practitioner Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy sets the benchmark for professional therapeutic practice standards. It is also the final step towards full qualification in clinical hypnotherapy. 


The course features the most advanced and sophisticated techniques in clinical hypnotherapy, including how to integrate psycho-therapeutic techniques with clinical hypnotherapy in order to produce powerful interventions for more complex psychological and emotional issues.

The course is designed to help students:

  • Enhance the way you think and work as a professional clinical hypnotherapist

  • Benefit from the experiences and therapeutic advantages of expert clinical hypnotherapists

  • Develop a sophisticated understanding of the therapeutic practice

Often times, clinical hypnotherapists are tempted to settle for a Diploma qualification. In doing so, we miss out on the opportunity to benefit from highly-effective techniques for working with addiction, serious and complex illness, psycho-sexual problems, rape, abuse, bereavement, grief, and recovery. Working on these conditions are challenging, and it may push us to our limits; but it is through these difficult cases that we will also know we have made a difference in someone’s life.

This course is suitable for all clinical hypnotherapists, medical doctors, and healthcare professionals. Graduates of the advanced diploma are able to work with a full range of complex and persistent conditions.
