The Higher Diploma Course in Hypnotherapy - Psychology is designed according to the latest requirements of various professional organisations. Anyone who wishes to become a therapist capable of helping those suffering from emotional disorders requires a thorough and comprehensive training which includes a clear demonstration of the skills and approaches taught.
Such training should include a study of psychology, and theories and methods of psychotherapy, as well as acquiring the ability to use a wide variety of hypno-therapeutic techniques.
Students will be expected to take full case histories and to maintain confidential records. Students will be required to complete three case studies per month to fulfil the course requirements. Case studies will be written as a result of work with supervised study groups.
Opportunities are given for students to present and offer case histories for open discussion. By the end of the course students are expected to have documented 60 case studies. Students will be tested on their success in developing their own counselling approach according to the integrative principles presented.
Through the training there will also be an emphasis on self-awareness, personal growth and development. The practice of co-counselling is encouraged.
^ TopPERSONAL THERAPY
Students as future practitioners are expected to be mentally and emotionally fit to help others. Due to the sensitive material that will be handled during the course, it is inevitable that one's own issues will surface. These issues will be worked with on the course, but as the course is not regarded as Ôtherapy', students will be required to work with these issues outside of the course hours if need be. If students feel they need to refer to therapy at any point within the course, a list of recommended and competent therapists, trained by the School, will be provided. Therapy is not a requirement of the diploma course, but with some professional bodies it is expected as part of their membership requirements. DURATION
Appreciating the pressures of modern life, time and financial constraints, the training course is conducted at weekends, one weekend (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) every two months. The programme is designed to be completed within one year.
The training days are mainly experiential, and commence from: 9.00am until 9.00pm, Friday & Saturday & 9.00am until 6.00pm Sunday. (33 credit hours per weekend)
There will be two 15-minute tea breaks and 1-hour lunch & dinner breaks. As we will be working as a group, students are encouraged to bring food to share, and the lunch break is an integral part of the course.
Throughout the training course, students are expected to meet regularly between the course dates. This is to enhance practice and gain benefit from the exchange of information in regard to practice and previous knowledge from those students already in the caring professions.
The assessment on this course is ongoing and accumulative. Students have to demonstrate understanding of what they are doing, being able at all times to explain and clarify their therapeutic interventions as well as being able to critically evaluate their work and the work of others.
By the end of the course students are expected to submit a portfolio of case studies that show evidence of understanding and applying the course material to therapy.
As we have a professional responsibility to maintain a high standard of practice within the Hypnotherapy - Psychology field, the School staff will constantly assess students. If any student does not reach the required standard of work, intellectually and interpersonally, then they may be asked to withdraw from the course or be referred to further training in Hypnotherapy.INVESTMENT

The following outline of the course is a necessarily general one. The syllabus below will be adopted to the needs of individual students and constantly updated with the latest technologies of Hypnotherapy-Psychology as they are developed. This is a LEARN BY DOING, Ôhands on' programme and not just a theory-lecture course. THE SYLLABUS 601: Counselling Skills: A Three Stage Model
Introduction to psychology; psychoanalytical theories of personality; Freud, Jung and Adler. You will learn to identify the stages of childhood development according to Freud; identify and work with defence mechanisms; explore basic theory of Jungian archetypes and work with Adler's birth order theory.
^ Top602: Object Relations Therapy: Utilizing Transference and Countertransference
Often an inner parents for the inner child is not enough for your clients. They need your parenting as well. Using Winnicott's concept of holding the client, Melanie Klein's theory of the paranoid-schizoid position and Bowlby's Attachment Theory, we will learn to work with and within the transference and countertransference in the hypnotic state to maximise client results. We will also learn corrective parenting skills for the therapist. 603: The Therapeutic Alliance
Using Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy to facilitate client change. Unfocused listening - how to listen to what the client is not saying that you need to know. Using the "Internal Supervisor" - (your inner guide to effective therapy work) to evaluate objectively while also sharing subjectively the client's process. Developing an understanding of how the therapeutic relationship is developed and maintained. 604: Refining the Tools of Humanistic Psychology for the 21st Century
Using Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs you will help clients to understand and achieve their full potential in hypnotherapy. We also cover: Rogerian Theory, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt Theory and Practice, and using philosophical concepts of Existentialism to help clients define a life purpose beyond their presenting problem.
605: From Regression to Progression
All Hypnotherapists know how to fix the past. Now learn to help clients discover and experience a clear path to their future. They will learn to discover and resolve every obstacle, every incremental step to this dynamic future, using both the Future Self and rescue missions for whichever inner child may be blocking each stage of the client's journey to fulfilment.606: Archetypes and the Conference Room
Taking sub-personalities work down to the body and up to the soul by incorporating Transactional Hypnoanalysis and Alchemical Hypnotherapy methods of sub-personality work.
First help your clients to integrate mind and body into a spiritual integrated self by developing awareness of our body's different parts as archetypes within our psychic makeup.
Then we will integrate the Western tradition of fairy tales as archetypes of our collective unconscious with the Native American tradition of animals as sources of wisdom and power. By placing these figures around the conference room table we experience sub-personality work at a deeper soul level.
We will also learn to deal with the issues of transition and bereavement, which are an integral part of the human condition.
