Top Ten Reasons to Choose CPHT

Practical, complete training, full NCFE accreditation, nationwide presence, payment options… there are many reasons to choose CPHT as the best hypnotherapy training centre. Here are our top ten.

1We produce practitioners who are ‘Fit for Purpose’

CPHT is probably the most practical course in the country. We encourage our students to start practising from the first two days of the course onwards. Our students are expected to go into successful practice beit part-time or full-time.

The very high standard of training ensures that CPHT graduates are able to help people in the clinical and medical areas of depression and anxiety.

Here is what one of our graduates, has to say about her training: “Being encouraged to start practising at the earliest opportunity seemed a bit daunting at first, but it was the best thing that could have happened to me. Practice gave me confidence in the success of the techniques I was taught and the confidence to start charging as a student after 7 months of training. By the end of the course, I had already earned my course fees back and within 12 months of qualifying I’m running a successful practice, working as many hours as I want and earning more money than I was before I embarked on my new life as a Clinical Hypnotherapist.”

2The course has stood the test of time and is based on the expertise of one of the country’s most gifted hypnotherapists

David Newton Senior Lecturer CPHTDavid Newton is probably the most successful and experienced clinical practitioner in the country. He is proud of having the experience of 30,000 clinical hours which has enabled him to perfect what works and discard what is less effective.  With the help of some trusted colleagues, David has developed, tested and fine-tuned this hypnotherapy course over nearly two decades.

3Our training is ‘complete’

CORPCPHT is recognised as the most ‘up to date’ course. We take a great deal of notice of research and neuroscience in combination with the very best of Solution Focused techniques, Brain based Therapy, CBT and NLP along with common sense and experience.

We also have our own Research Programme : CORP = The Clifton Practice, Outcomes, Research Programme. There is a great deal of research that suggests the measurement of outcomes is good practice. Students take an active part in the programme from early in the course. They are shown how to integrate CORP into their practice.

4We are accredited on the National Qualification Framework

Successful graduation leads to a Diploma in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (DSFH) and, after submitting a portfolio compiled throughout the training, the award of Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma (HPD).

HPD has been accredited by NCFE, a recognised Awarding Organisation, as having measurable Learning Outcomes that have been benchmarked at Level 4 using Ofquals Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF) level descriptors.

After graduation practitioners will be eligible to join various organisations including the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).

5Our support mechanism both during training and subsequently is second to none

Support during training is considerable and considered very important. Students have on-going access and interactions with all the CPHT Team.

Once in practice graduates will be expected to remain in formal supervision for the first three/five years of their practice (dependant on which Professional Association they are a member of).

Supervision may be in either a group situation or individually, and is invariably considered by ex-students to be both enjoyable and supportive. To support our graduates we have a number of CPHT trained and externally accredited supervisors.

There is an on-going Continuous Professional Development Programme (CPD) in place at CPHT.

6Our Senior Lecturers are highly qualified, good teachers but most of all successful, experienced hypnotherapists

As well as having the award Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma (HPD), all Senior Lecturers will also have trained as a Solution Focused Supervisor. At CPHT this is a Level 5 award and the highest supervision qualification in hypnotherapy.

Each CPHT website has a dedicated Senior Lecturers page which gives detailed information of their professional background.


7We understand there is no point in being the “best hypnotherapist in the world” if you don’t have clients

From the very outset of the course we emphasise and help with presentation and marketing. We expect our students to have their practice well and truly up and running by the latter stages of training. We also have a webdesign service, CPHT Websites, to assist students in setting themselves up online.

After graduation practitioners are supported by The Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH) whose charter is to promote Solution Focused trained graduates and Solution Focused Hypnotherapy in particular.

8There is a choice of training venues and payment options

  • CPHT has multiple training centres in the UK and abroad. Every effort has been made to ensure that locations are suitable for hypnotherapy training.
  • Fees can be paid in monthly instalments.

9The course is ‘life changing’ in more ways than one

Comments like: “I now have so much more confidence”, “I feel so much better about myself”, “I am so much more in control”, “I am so much happier” are not only not unusual but generally the norm.

10The HPD Course in enjoyable!

People attending our courses laugh a lot, but that is as it should be, enjoyable as well as effective. Sessions in the consulting room should be the highlight of the week. We expect our training days to be the highlight of the month. And, from what we hear, they are. “Thank you for a brilliant and entertaining course”. DR. October 2012
