Welcome from the Course Director
Welcome to my Clinical Hypnotherapy Practitioner Certification course. Clinical Hypnotherapy, NLP and Life Coaching often get confused. Life Coaching is about the process of coaching lives and Clinical Hypnotherapy and NLP are strategies for doing just that.
To ensure you get the best results possible with your clients I have included multi-practitioner training certification within this course giving you 'the complete behavioural change coach's toolkit'.
Modules included in this course over and above Clinical Hypnotherapy include NLP, behavioural science, the emotional freedom technique, lifestyle medicine and life coaching. This multi-certification program is certified by LPUKA to practitioner level in CLINICAL HYPNOTHERAPY, NLP and LIFE COACHING and EFT.
We have this course fully accredited with ACCPH. Accredited counsellors, coaches, psychotherapists and hypnotherapists. This means you can buy insurance and practise NLP professionally once you have completed the course and been awarded your level 4 diploma.
Level 4 Diploma
Accredited counsellors, coaches, psychotherapists and hypnotherapists.
If you are a professional student looking for a market leading clinical hypnotherapy level course that will enable you to work professionally within the personal and professional development arena then this course is for you.
All our courses are aimed at the professional student either full or part time with between 6 months and 2 years dedicated to learning their new craft and entering the industry as a practising professional clinical hypnotherapist. The guideline time for completing this course is 12 months.
Alternatively you may be an established coach or health practitioner looking to obtain additional skills and qualifications to add to your existing skill set.
We have used a powerful combination of audio, video, self-study, personal assignments and an extensive reading list so you can complete our programme in your own time at your own pace. You will experience very quickly as you work through the course, how simple, effective, meaningful and lasting change can be.
Our ethos and core beliefs are based upon the fact that every individual can achieve unlimited success in their life, unlocking their full potential and ultimately getting the life they want.
All our courses work on the principle that individual success comes down to the right balance of focus, control, confidence, competence and taking action.

I have included everything i know in this course and I'm now sharing all that knowledge with you. I have held nothing back. You will come across an NLP term called modelling. You will learn to realise it means replicating excellence.
By following the teachings this course gives you, you will have the secrets and top tips I have used over the last 13 years as one of the UK's leading clinical hypnotherapists and NLP coaches.
I have worked with world-champion sportsmen, West End stars, government advisors, politicians, the CEOs of some of the world's largest companies and the one thing i have found to be true with all of them is that they all run the same programmes, face the same challenges and are coached successfully by the same techniques: the techniques I am sharing with you on this course.
The best advice I can give you at this early stage is to be confident and take your time in getting the most out of the course you can.
You are entering a wonderful industry where you will witness such change in human beings you won't believe it possible.
I have seen the leading West End star, who cried that he would never perform again, get back on stage at the Palladium and give the performance of his life.
i have worked with a girl who had been blind for six months and who medical professionals were unable to help with their non-organic hypothesis. Following an NLP breakthrough session, she regained 90% of her sight.
I have seen the young chap who couldn't fly, although his job depended on it. Following an NLP session, I got him onto a plane. However, this was no ordinary flight – it was filmed live on national television.
Clinical hypnotherapy proves time and time again nothing is impossible and everything is possible.
For me, the most exciting part of my journey was this bit now that you are entering. The beginning. I gave up a job as a director at Barclays Bank to become a clinical hypnotherapy, life coach and NLP practitioner and never looked back.
I hope you will love every minute of this wonderful journey and like me never look back.
Will Carling taught me many years ago, success is 90% confidence. I believe he was right. That was my first experience of how we can use the mind to achieve unprecedented and unlimited personal and professional success.
We have used the following symbols to guide you through the programme so that you know what to do and when to do it all in your own time.

At this introductory stage I am delighted to be able to share the first ever professional article I wrote on clinical hypnotherapy. This was over 10 years ago and written for the Jersey Life and published by the Life Magazine group. I still write today for this magazine.
