Hypnotherapy Teacher Training

Get Mind Fit training For Hypnotherapists

You are in the right place to access quality, accredited training and become an advanced, clinical hypnotherapist of excellence through the UK Academy of Therapeutic Arts and Sciences which is a network of trained professionals, accredited and qualified in both education and hypnotherapy. I am the Director for Bath, Bristol and the South West.

With a background in Further and Higher Education, I have been training hypnotherapists since 2004, although I have been a hypnotherapist since 1995 and continue to see clients.

Many successful hypnotherapists in the Bath, Bristol Wales, South West England and Gloucestershire areas have been trained by me and I pride myself on delivering compassionate, enthusiastic, supportive, knowledgeable training which gives you a route into an exciting, new career. As part of the NCHP family, you also have the opportunity,  once you have achieved the externally accredited  HPD (Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma) via NCFE and NCH of a fast track route in to  training to achieve a Masters’ in Psychotherapy, whilst already working as a hypnotherapist. You have free student membership of NCH and are eligible to attend both The NCH and NCHP conferences. You are also eligible for membership of NSHP.

As a qualified assessor, I am the sole assessor for another school’s HPD as well as my own students and because the principal and VP of UK Academy were responsible for setting up the HPD in the first place, you can be sure of training which relates directly to the end qualification. You can also be sure of an overview of hypnotherapy techniques rather than just one rigid view of one method of hypnotherapy, claiming to be the one size fits all approach. I have a passion for teaching, for hypnotherapy and for passing on my knowledge to a new generation of hypnotherapists of excellence and I show you how effective an individual, tailor made approach is for all your clients.

The Details of the courses run in Bath and Bristol

Usually the course takes place over 10/11 months one whole weekend a month, and a fast track is also sometimes offered. You may apply for an intensive course. The requirement for HPD is 120 hours face to face and a commitment to 450 hours of study in total, through research, completing the case studies and portfolio. You also receive, at your request, tutorials/supervision and the opportunity to gain 4 specialist certifications at the end of your HPD (Hypnotherapy practitioner Diploma)/Dip Cah (Diploma in clinical and advanced hypnotherapy) course.

You will receive extra notes from me, at any time I deem necessary or reasonable and I usually teach in parallel to the course notes, so you have at least 2 chances to understand. I do not teach via the ‘death by power point’ method ; rather there is a great deal of discussion, pair work, practice of inductions , interventions, demonstrations  and pedagogical input to ensure you learn in the best possible way. You are encouraged invite friends and acquaintances who might like hypnotherapy to come at set times so I can demonstrate hypnotherapeutic practices and techniques and you can practise assessment and hypnotherapeutic practices and techniques

You can get insurance, entry to the NCH Conference and journals as a member of this body.

As UKA is part of NCHP, you may choose to continue study to Post Graduate level and become a hypno-psychotherapist under UKCP regulations. There is no obligation as you are a fully qualified, though inexperienced, beginner hypnotherapist after 120 hours of study. In practice, most good, competent hypnotherapists continue with CPD and supervision, which is a requirement through NCH

In summary, you are a fully qualified and competent hypnotherapist upon completion of the course and portfolio.

Your Tutor, Hilary Norris-Evans: 

I have worked in hypnotherapy since 1997; previously I worked in language teaching and management in Further and Higher Education. I have set up my hypnotherapy practice on three occasions (due to moving) so have a great deal of knowledge of the pitfalls and best practice.

As my background is in education, you can be sure I can train you in a professional way. I am your assessor for The HPD Portfolio, as I also have an assessor qualification, although there will also be internal and external verification, through NCH and NCFE.  I also assess externally for another organisation which works towards the HPD external qualification, so have an excellent idea of the required standard

I am a qualified and certified supervisor, have been on The NCH Committee, was its specialist advisor for Self Esteem and am qualified in Mindfulness. I also am a Master Practitioner of NLP, well respected in my field and have led workshops both nationally and internationally.  I have a NVQ Level 4 qualification in CBT (but CBT is not really covered in this course in any depth); am a certified coach and Easibirthing practitioner.

If you wish to know what I am really like as a trainer from a student’s point of view, you may speak to a current or previous student.

I would describe my training style as being consistent, fair, empowering, enthusiastic, encouraging, open and honest. In my training I endeavour to demonstrate what being a good hypnotherapist is and I challenge and encourage my students at the same time. I use the pedagogical methods I learnt in my training and practised in my teaching.  I would not expect any student to be a clone of me and I employ an eclectic approach.

As well as training to be a hypnotherapist, you will probably go on your own journey through the course and grow. You will certainly be encouraged to overcome personal issues through this course with the help of hypnotherapy and you will be expected to practise self- hypnosis, once you are competent at it.  You may even become a competent script writer in hypnotherapy; something I encourage in all students.

The UK Academy Course Syllabus

You will find it in great detail on The UK Academy website. It covers all you need to know in order to become a safe, competent and ethical practitioner, including:

Elman, Ericksonian hypnotherapy and NLP (NB not CBT)

The therapeutic relationship, ethical practice

Safe inductions, language work for interventions, safe exits from hypnotherapy, ending a session in a satisfactory way.

Interventions for anxiety, panic attacks, smoking cessation, weight management, regression work, phobia work and much more. Check out the syllabus for full details.

ADDITIONALLY, you will learn about rapid induction processes, as I am very keen on these procedures as well as being extremely fond of Milton Erickson. Rapid induction is an extra I have chosen to add to the full syllabus. I lead CPD courses on Rapid Induction, Confidence and Self Esteem, Problem Gambling and NLP and have knowledge and experience of leading courses in Business and organisations

ADDITIONALLY, at the end of the course, you have the opportunity to submit 4 specialist certifications in Anxiety, Stop Smoking, Ericksonian and NLP. I usually agree with you an extra weekend (for which there is an additional cost of £222) to help you achieve these. Alternatively, you may study for them on your own, without help.

I hope this information sheet is helpful for you and you may contact me to ask for further details.
