Would you like to study Ericksonian Hypnotherapy from your home, café or even when sitting on a park bench? And would you like to make a genuine difference to the lives of others? Help people achieve new goals? And motivate them to succeed without them knowing how you are doing it?

And would you like to help people overcome life-long problems? Overcome pain, fears, phobias, weight issues, smoking or lack of confidence? And do this indirectly in a way that makes them feel they’re responsible for the changes?




WATCH THIS 16 MINUTE VIDEO FROM THE COURSE where online course tutor Stephen Brooks teaches a special indirect way of hypnotising people using only subtle eye movements – there are 120 similar lecture videos like this on the course, as well as 10 lessons each month, 40 hours of therapy session videos, quizzes and forums! 


This Course

Over 6000 people have taken this course over the past 7 years and this is still the ONLY comprehensive one year online Ericksonian Hypnotherapy Course in the world – so there’s no point looking elsewhere – because no one else has ever managed to create such a comprehensive online hypnosis training as this.

Like everything else in life, you will need to put a little time and effort into logging in, learning hypnosis and hypnotising people – about 3 hours a week should be fine and the course will soon become part of your life. It spans one year but you can complete it a lot quicker if you create a routine for yourself. We will give you access to the course for three years – so if you are really stuck for time, or are too busy hypnotising people, you can spread your studies over 36 months.

Your Online Tutor – Stephen Brooks

Stephen Brooks Hypnotherapy TrainerOver the years Stephen has become one of the most respected hypnotherapists in the world and he has taught many of the biggest names in hypnosis and therapy today. His courses have run in over 20 hospitals and universities and are at the cutting edge of hypnosis training both academically and as skill based trainings. Stephen’s course is not a typical rote learned hypnosis course based on memorising scripts – his course is the most innovative, cutting edge hypnosis training available, based on years of research and practice.

Thirty years ago, together with the University of Sussex, Stephen produced the world’s first ‘Training In Indirect Hypnosis’ video for the British National Sound Archives – and it became the benchmark for many training organisations worldwide and was shown widely on their courses. This helped establish Stephen as a leading authority in the field. The online course features over 40 hours of Stephen demonstrating Ericksonian hypnotherapy with patients in hospitals. These have been chosen to reflect the way that Ericksonian hypnosis has evolved over the past 30 years and they cover the major problems that can be treated with hypnosis. Stephen has also added an in-depth commentary to each hypnotherapy session, making this a unique record of how to work therapeutically as Milton Erickson did in the past. On this online course you will have Stephen all to yourself 24/7 as your personal trainer. He teaches every lesson and demonstrates everything himself. This is a unique opportunity.




What Recent Trainees Are Saying

“Your online course in Ericksonian Hypnosis was one of the best courses ever. A ‘must’ for every ongoing coach and therapist. Thanks not only for the very interesting lessons… one of the most important parts are the self-reflecting questionnaires and the possibility to exchange ideas with other students.”  Andreas Tenhagen – Germany

“I would like to say to anyone thinking about joining this excellent course that for me it is one of the best things I ever did. If you are keen to learn something new and meet new friends then join the Stephen Brooks hypnosis course – thank you.” Brian Tatlow – UK

“As a graduate of the excellent online course by Stephen Brooks on Ericksonian Hypnosis, I can only say that it has expanded my mind and greatly improved the quality of my life!  It is much better than many courses that I have paid for and the quality of the information is superb!  It sparked a lot of interest in Ericksonian Hypnosis for me and I am continuing to study and experience it.  Also, the online community is of the highest caliber and Stephen Brooks is an excellent teacher!” Pedro Di Giacomo – USA

“Stephen Brooks’ course is absolutely genuine, down to earth, free of self-aggrandizing hype, confusing flights of fancy and extraordinary claims. Stephen teaches Ericksonian Hypnosis directly and clearly, he illustrates all his lessons with hours and hours of footage of his real sessions, putting his own performances available for all to pick apart and analyse. In this way you really understand how all the skills weave together. So the transition from learning to providing therapy is as easy as possible given this is not a live training. And given that this gives you limitless access to course materials and forums, I certainly didn’t also expect live moderation by trainers and responsive technical support!”  Chris Preager – UK
