Book now on my meetup page

There  are two types of hypnosis. Stage and clinical. Steve has performed as a stage hypnotist to demonstrate the awesome power of hypnosis to unlock the creativity of the unconscious mind. Volunteers are given the opportunity to unleash their creativity in a way they may never have thought possible. The same hypnosis tools can be applied to hypnotherapy, guiding the client towards their own solutions for their current  issues and problems. The 5 day course gives you a taste of both stage and clinical hypnosis, and helps you begin your journey as a hypnotherapist.
You will also learn some self hypnosis techniques, which can be used to alleviate stress, poor sleep patterns and much more.
It is highly recommended that you also undertake at least some basic NLP training in addition to the 5 day hypnosis course, which will give you an even greater set of skills, and the confidence to deal with clients.
On completion you will be eligible to join the C.M.A and obtain discounted insurance rates.

The live trainings are currently on hold due to the Corona Virus situation, but feel free to contact me with any questions you may have, or join us on our Meetup group

The course uses a mixture of theory and plenty of practical  exercises to ensure you leave the course confident in your abilities as a hypnotist. Most students go on to become successsful hypnotherapists, and a small number apply their new skills to stage hypnosis. There is quite a considerable amount of post course work, a written exam, and case studies to be completed before certification. This is a very intensive course, which requires a considerable amount of commitment.
