Course Structure

The Self Hypnosis Training Course is divided into four different stages – each stage is an important step towards problem solving with Self Hypnosis.


Stage One: Inducing the self-hypnotic trance necessary for problem solving.

Stage Two: Deepening the trance state to the required depths for therapy to be successful.

Stage Three: Giving yourself therapeutic post hypnotic suggestions and applying NLP techniques for problem-solving.

Stage Four: Learning new therapeutic ways of treating specific problems such as pain, habits, anxiety, smoking, weight loss, confidence, panic attacks and phobias etc.


This is a ‘learning by experience’ course. We will first introduce and demonstrate each technique thoroughly and then in small personally supervised exercise groups you will have the opportunity to practice and acquire each skill. Emphasis will be placed on your ability to successfully use the skills for your particular needs. Experience has taught us that this way of learning is the most thorough way of developing new skills.

How You Will Benefit

Self Hypnosis is certainly the most effective treatment for many anxiety-based problems such as overcoming fears, eating disorders, smoking, confidence, insomnia, asthma, migraine, high blood pressure and pain control as it places emphasis not just on resolving problems but on the positive consequences of doing so.

Self Hypnosis is very different from the traditional authoritarian approach to self hypnosis. Suggestions such as ‘Don’t feel hungry’, ‘Relax more and more’, and other such self-given commands rarely succeed. Self Hypnosis puts far more powerful mental forces – those of the unconscious mind – to work. By applying NLP techniques and entering certain forms of future focused hypnotic suggestion into your unconscious mind they will remain active there, influencing your behaviour and feelings.

Self Hypnosis has gained widespread respectability in the healing professions. Many doctors, dentists, psychologists and psychotherapists want to teach it to their patients and clients. Psychiatrists in America have been teaching Self Hypnosis to cancer patients and others with chronic pain and report that 20% achieved nearly total freedom from pain and 60% achieved a significant reduction in pain levels.


Who Should Attend

If you want to learn Self Hypnosis to enhance your life, solve specific problems, or help others you will benefit considerably by attending this course. If you are a doctor, dentist, psychologist, psychotherapists, hypnotherapist, social worker, nurse etc, and want to help your patient’s or clients in a new and effective way and therefore achieve new goals in your own particular profession, then you should attend this course.

If you are working in the caring professions and intend teaching self hypnosis to your patient’s you will discover that it will not only increase their ability to relax and handle stress but will also dramatically improve their ability to help themselves, feel much more responsible for their success in therapy and boost their confidence considerably.

If you require a powerful form of self-therapy for your own personal use you will find no better technique than self hypnosis as taught on this course and we guarantee that every student attending the course will take home all the skills necessary to effectively practice self hypnosis for problem solving.

This self hypnosis training course is recognised for CPD (Continuing professional development) credits. 

Please note that we are expecting a huge demand for places on this course as last year’s course was over subscribed.
