Becoming a Clinical Hypnotherapist can help you to have a career that not only gives you a vocation in life but also rewarding financially.

About the course

This Clinical Hypnotherapy and NLP Diploma is accredited by ACCPH, so you will be fully qualified to become a Hypnotherapist with a valuable UK certificate. The hypnotherapy syllabus follows the learning outcomes of the National Occupational Standards (NOS) for Hypnotherapy.

Joy Gower Training provides training in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. The emphasis is on experiential learning which means you don’t have to sit through long lectures but have the opportunity to experience all aspects of hypnosis and NLP.

To become a qualified hypnotherapist and to have the confidence in helping people to change takes time and practice. Shorter courses may offer the same kind of training, but most clients will expect a therapist to have had at least a year’s training. Intensive courses cram the information which often cannot be assimilated enough to be of practical use.

Our training aims to give you a broad knowledge in how to help people successfully, and most of all confidently. It is a client’s right and expectation to have a qualified and confident therapist.

Joy Gower Training will offer you supervision and support during and after the course. The aftercare is vital, and so it can be reassuring for you to know your trainer and co-ordinator will be there with full support.

Choosing your trainers

How do you know which training provider will be the best for you?

This may give you some guidelines when choosing the right provider for you. Hypnotherapy courses are being offered in greater numbers all the time. You can choose between short term or longer term courses.

In practical terms, the first question to ask yourself is what kind of training do you want? You may be quite clear to start with, or you may want to gather some information. Do you want an externally certified course by people who don’t know you but assess the work you have done throughout the course? This may be an important factor for you if you would prefer your work to be externally assessed. Most hypnotherapy bodies promote externally accredited courses rather than a training provider who gives you one of their own certificates.

The cost of the course is an obvious consideration and where the training takes place in terms of convenience. Where is the training venue? If you are going to spend a considerable time at the venue, it needs to be a place where you feel comfortable and relaxed. Clients need a place where they can relax, so it follows that when you are practising, you too need a comfortable place.

How does the course fit in with your commitments? What happens if you have to miss a module?

Even more important perhaps are the trainers who will be training you for the whole course. The trainers will have a big influence on the course. Some trainers will have experience in the media, or will impress you with the fact that they are trained with international trainers. Most good trainers don’t need to impress you, other than that they have years of experience and are passionate about their work.

Perhaps the most important fact is your own personal feelings. You can find out as much as possible when you speak to the trainer. If the trainer is not easily accessible before the course to speak to, it may be that you will not get enough support either during the course or post course. A good quality training provider will offer supervision both during the course and after graduating. You should be able to easily contact trainers during the course, either by telephone or email. Larger training providers have administrators you can speak to, but they may not necessarily be familiar with the course you are taking.

This can be a rewarding career for you, although we prefer not to advertise for students whose only motivation is for how much money they will make. We would rather you be passionate about the career move and then work toward the financial rewards.

Using your intuition, you will be able to recognise whether the course you choose is right for you.
