The International Ericksonian Hypnotherapy University Master Practitioner Summer School

With Jos van Boxtel


Location: Birkbeck University, Malet Street, London

Dates: 17 – 25 August 2019

Course fee: £2850.00


Qualification: Master Practitioner Diploma in Indirect Hypnosis, Ericksonian Hypnotherapy and Hypnotic Language with Clients


On this course you will build on the skills learned from our Practitioner Diploma course (or other training) and you will develop the advanced skills and techniques of Ericksonian Hypnotherapy and Counselling to use with your clients and patients.

We designed the international ‘Master Practitioner Diploma in Ericksonian Hypnotherapy and Counselling’ course to meet the needs of students traveling from abroad, or having only limited time to study, and wishing to receive hands-on training in indirect hypnosis, Ericksonian psychotherapy and NLP. The course runs over 9 days in central London at the University of London and inexpensive accommodation is available within the university, convenient for sight-seeing in the evenings and at weekends. The course follows on from our Practitioner Diploma Course and teaches more advanced skills and techniques. It is also open to graduates of other training courses who have achieved a similar level of learning equivalent to our Practitioner course.

There are real benefits for people outside the UK when joining the course in London.

  1. The course is a recognised qualification held at a UK University.
  2. The course runs for 9 days (Sat – Sun), so can be achieved with minimal time off work.
  3. Because the UK is leaving the EU, the exchange rate is now very favorable for people buying UK services or products from abroad – everything is 15 – 18% cheaper.

During the course you will watch live therapy demonstrations of the ADVANCED skills and techniques being taught and then practice these with other students. Our goal is that by the end of the course you will be able to apply these yourself. On graduating from the course you will receive our Master Practitioner Diploma in Indirect Hypnosis, Ericksonian Hypnotherapy and Hypnotic Language with Clients.

Course Design

Indirect Hypnosis combined with Ericksonian Psychotherapy and NLP is recognised as one of the most effective and rapid ways of helping patients achieve desired change in their behaviour and lives. This unique approach was developed by the BHRTI from the work of Milton H Erickson, an American Psychiatrist recognised as the world’s leading authority on hypnosis and innovative psychotherapy. Because of the BHRTI’s outstanding contribution to the field, few courses today can offer the same degree of expertise regarding Erickson’s work. Throughout the training, we constantly place emphasis on the ethical and practical application of the skills. This is not only a theoretical course, this is a hands-on course designed to teach effective practical skills that you can apply in an immediate and powerful way to help clients and patients. 


Your Trainer – Jos van Boxtel

ericksonian hypnosis training

When we first contacted Milton Erickson in the 1970’s, we did so with the belief that if Erickson could achieve extraordinary results with clients then it could be learnt and taught to others. This assumption gave us the confidence to emulate everything that Erickson did, and apply Erickson’s remarkable skills as a benchmark for the students on our courses. 

We have trained thousands of hypnotherapists to use Erickson’s skills and technique and our Master Practitioner gives you the unique opportunity to learn advanced skills and techniques of Ericksonian Hypnotherapy with your trainer Jos van Boxtel.

Jos Van Boxtel is a hypnotherapist with an established practice in Utrecht in the Netherlands. He has considerable experience of applying EricksonianHypnosis, NLP, EMDR, Neurosemantics and Solution Focused Therapy with a wide range of problems with over 1000 clients. He holds qualifications at Master Practitioner level in hypnotherapy and NLP.

BHRTI founder Stephen Brooks originally the format for this course and is recognised as one of the most important contributors to the field of Ericksonian Hypnotherapy, both as a teacher and therapist. Jos van Boxtel has modeled Stephen Brooks’ Ericksonian work in considerable depth and is a leading authority on Stephen Brooks approach to Ericksonian Hypnotherapy. Jos is also author of the first of a series of Ericksonian Guides. The first book specialises in Stephen Brooks’ Ericksonian approach to Phobias and is called ‘Stephen Brooks and the Art of Ericksonian Hypnotherapy – Phobias.’
