Most of our courses take place in Wrexham, with easy access from motorways and conveniently placed for rail travel and Manchester and Liverpool airports. Wrexham is just 20 minutes by car from Chester, with good road and rail networks to other parts of North Wales, Mid Wales, Shropshire and the Midlands, as well as Cheshire, Merseyside and the North West of England.
Some training takes place at our Oswestry location which is just over the border in Shropshire. Training takes place in Oswestry mainly when either it is more convenient for students, or when we have smaller class numbers. Both locations are the home to hypnotherapy practices, so you will have ample opportunity to observe and work with clients in a real life setting.
Our hypnotherapy diploma courses are available in three formats to suit individual students requirements. Our most popular course is our 10 weekend course, held one weekend a month over ten months. For those who are travelling from further afield, or would just like to complete the course quicker, or for those that weekends are not convenient, there are two intensive options. The first is three one week blocks held over three alternate months, for example November, January and March. Secondly is the two week intensive, which has recently been re-modeled to include two separate, long 8 day “weeks”. These courses will be held in August, the first week at the beginning of the month, and the second week near the end of the month.
Over the duration of the course students will compile a portfolio of work, so there is a good amount of homework to complete between sessions, and in the case of the two week intensive, before and after the face to face training. This portfolio building comprises of reading and research, compiling a learning journal, answering questions, case studies and audio recordings. This work has to meet the requirements of set learning outcomes, and assessment of students knowledge and understanding will be based on this work.
Our main hypnotherapy training course comprises of ten separate modules. These modules each equate to a weekend, and training takes place once a month for ten months. The focus of the weekends, as well as learning there will be ample opportunity for practical work and developing your skills. There will also be work to complete at home in between each weekend, as you build up a portfolio of evidence regarding your knowledge and understanding. In ten months we aim to help you become a knowledgeable and confident hypnotherapist ready to start your own practice. These ten modules give you at least 120 hours of face to face training and practice, allowing plenty of time in between modules to catch up with coursework and process the information.
This ten month course starts twice a year, once in the Spring and again in the Autumn. Dates for the next courses are as follow :
