Admission Process

Entry requirements

This is a professional-level qualification, and it is expected that you should demonstrate a good level of education with Higher-level qualifications or equivalent vocational experience.  However for those wishing to re-train but not holding formal qualifications, a desire to learn and enthusiasm to participate will be taken into account.

You will also require basic computer skills as you will be required to submit a portfolio of work on completion of training.

In order to be considered for the course please send a CV and short statement of your personal philosophy to heather@hmh-therapy.co.uk

Once I have received your application I will contact you to arrange a short interview.  I will be looking for you to  demonstrate the appropriate skills to work with people who are sometimes vulnerable.  Please be aware that not everyone is suitable for this type of course and you will need to pass the interview to be accepted onto the course.  Once you have passed the interview a deposit of £267.50 is required to secure your place on the course.

Qualifications Gained

On completion of the course you will gain:

  • Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma (HPD)
  • Diploma in Clinical and Advanced Hypnosis (Dip CAH)
  • Practitioner Certificate in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (PNLP)

This will entitle you to use the qualifications HPD, Dip (CAH) and PNLP after your name.

Specialist certification in treating Anxiety, Smoking Cessation, and Ericksonian Hypnotherapy can be added at a later date through additional portfolio submissions at no additional cost.


We run two intakes per year in March and September.  Our next intake is 9th and 10th September 2024. Please be advised that places are limited to a maximum of 10, which research shows creates an ideal learning environment.  It also allows us to give you the support and attention you would expect from a high quality training course.
