The Surrey School of Hypnotherapy is offering accredited hypnotherapy courses for a Professional Diploma in Hypnotherapy.

Applications are welcome from any area, UK or abroad; all hypnotherapy courses are taught in the English language. Based in Bagshot village,  the school has easy access via public transport, and has many places to stay and eat close by. The course taught by the Surrey School of Hypnotherapy is one specially written and licensed by Lynda Roberts, Principal of Essex Hypnotherapy Training, which is an established and well recognised accredited hypnotherapy training provider.

The Essex Hypnotherapy Training Professional Diploma in Hypnotherapy offered by the Surrey School of Hypnotherapy has been assessed and accredited at Practitioner Level by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (UK). Graduates from this course are eligible for professional registration with the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR). This is the GHSC’s Registering Agency, at full practitioner status, together with the acquisition of the industry-based award – the General Qualification in Hypnotherapy Practice (GQHP).

Additionally, graduates of the Surrey School of Hypnotherapy will be eligible for fast tracked membership of the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC): both the GHR and the CNHC are highly respected and widely recognised organisations.

The required hours for the standard hypnotherapy training course are 140 hours of in-house tuition, spread over 10 months, at one weekend each month. A further eight hours each week are assigned to record practice sessions, evidence case studies, plus reading research and written assignments, giving a total of 460 hours over the course of the hypnotherapy training. Full details of case study requirements, evidence practice sessions and homework will be given at the start of the course. This gives students who are currently in full-time employment plenty of time to complete the course and meet the terms of the personal study, practice and homework elements.

I feel that students will learn best in small classes, and for this course I intend to teach no more than 10 at one time, so secure your place now. The atmosphere will be an informal one.

Student hypnotherapy courses

I am also running an intensive version of the training course, with exactly the same content, for those who can dedicate many more hours per week to study. The requirements are the same, i.e. 140 hours of in-house tuition, plus 320 hours of personal study, reading, research, written assignments and record practice sessions. There will still be mid-term assessment. We will also run this course this course over 10 teaching weekends, but it will only be approximately 5 months long. Your final assessment will be one month after the completion of the course studies, in month 5. The qualification at the end of the successful completion of the course will be exactly the same as the 10 month course. This course is only suitable for those who can genuinely devote approximately 28 hours per week to the personal study. It’s hard work, but if you feel able and are dedicated enough, you will be able to get your qualification in approximately half of the regular time. Either of these hypnotherapy courses, completed successfully, will achieve professional diploma level.

Because of the concentrated nature of this course, I anticipate only being able to accommodate 6 students on it this year. Please book as early as possible to secure your spot. Once again, the teaching atmosphere is informal.

Assessments are ongoing throughout the courses, and a written mid-course evaluation will be given at module 5 to enable us to identify your level of understanding. One-to-one tutorials will be carried out with ongoing feedback and support. The final assessment is by way of a full client session which is carried out in-house.

Successful completion of the hypnotherapy training course will require that all evidenced studies and the final assessment are completed. Once this is submitted your study log will be signed off and the Professional Diploma in Hypnotherapy will be issued.
