Winchester Hypnotherapy Academy is a subsidiary of Essex Hypnotherapy Training, which is an established and well recognised accredited hypnotherapy training provider. Classes are kept small, with no more than 6-8 students, in order that all students may receive a high quality of training and mentoring throughout the course. The course has been running since 2017 under the name Cornwall School of Hypnotherapy – click the link for more detailed information about this course.

The Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy offered by Winchester Hypnotherapy Academy has been assessed and accredited at Practitioner Level by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC). Graduates from this course are eligible for professional registration with the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR), who are the Registering Agency for the GHSC, at full practitioner status, and have entitlement to use the letters DipHyp after their name once qualified.

The required hours for the hypnotherapy training course are 140 hours of in-house online tuition, spread over 10 months, at one weekend each month. A further eight hours each week are assigned to record practice sessions, evidence case studies, plus reading research and written assignments, giving a total of 460 hours over the course of the hypnotherapy training. Full details of case study requirements evidence practice sessions and homework will be given at the start of the course.

Assessment is ongoing throughout the course and a written mid-course evaluation will be given at module 5 to enable us to identify your level of understanding. Mentoring and ongoing feedback and support are available throughout the course and this is provided by the Course Tutor. The final assessment is by way of a full client session which is carried out online.
