Level 4, 5 and 6 Hypnotherapy Training Courses at Cressingham College of Hypnotherapy

Our three aims are simple:

To provide high quality training to all our students.

To help the people of the UK, (and the rest of the World) get rid of their problems in one, (maybe two) sessions of the Flourish Programme. This is an advanced Positive Psychology and Neuroscience based mind work.

To continue using research to enhance the life changing effects hypnotherapy and other mind work. So as to enable people to regain and maintain mental-physical health and happiness.

Advanced Hypnotherapy Training Courses

Advanced Hypnotherapy is our Standard. Our standard is well above most other schools best courses. Hypnotherapy NLP Training (Cressingham College of Hypnotherapy) prides itself on having cutting-edge training based on research and how the mind actually works.

Of course we still offer standard methodology hypnotherapy courses and those based on CBT and Positive Psychology.

Level 5

Level 5 Responsive Hypnotherapy Practitioner

Responsive Hypnotherapy is an exceptionally advanced form of light trance hypnotherapy that enables people to 'change their minds' very quickly to eliminate a problem. No deep trance is used in this system.

It is built on many years of scientific and evidence based research. And helps people eliminate serious problems like drug adiction in as little as single two hour session.

Level 6 Flourish Programme

The Flourish Programme can be done in light trance or even open-eyed in a 'coaching style'. I hesitate to call it hypnotherapy in the traditional sense. It is effective even when used content free. Many people are 'sorted' after only one session. Usually with no emotional pain and no certainly no digging into the past.

Researched and developed using Neuroscience, Evolutionary Psychology, Positive Psychology, Quantum Concepts and other mind-body connections.

High Quality and Advanced Training is our Standard Training.

Level 2-4 Accredited Home Study Courses plus Validated CPD

We have an ever expanding range of accredited Level 2, 3 and 4 diploma and certificate courses.

We also have a selection of Validated CPD courses.

Many of these courses are designed to be qualifications in their own right. This enables a graduate to be a niche expert to gain more clients. But a significant number are written in an information or awareness style. This allows the practitioner to gain knowledge and use it in their way with their clients.

Most are not hypnotherapy courses but there content will allow you to become a more knowledgeable and accomplished hypnotherapist.

So you are still reading this page.

Then you are interested in becoming a highly competent practitioner; well done. You have made the first step toward the most rewarding vocational lifestyle today.

We are all different and need to learn in different ways. No matter what your learning style is you cannot learn hypnotherapy online. The teaching has to be face-to-face in a classroom. There has to be lots of time set aside for supervised peer practice. At Cressingham College of Hypnotherapy we do that. By delivering all courses in a variety of teaching styles we can fit everyone's learning style.

CCH offers hypnotherapy training courses from the ‘bog standard’ Level 4 clinical hypnotherapy practitioner. Up to some very advanced programmes built round:

  • Neurosciencehypnotherapy training courses
  • Neuropsychology
  • Evolutionary Psychology
  • Psychoneuroimmunology
  • Positive Psychology
  • Neuro-metaphors
  • and other incredible processes.

When I design new hypnotherapy programmes I am determined not to offer ‘bog standard’ - I am aiming for innovation. Most hypnotherapy teaching was designed last century. And has moved forward very little with modern knowledge. Being mired in ‘Old World’ practice and dogma they are lagging behind.

But to be able to learn the more advanced practices you must master the ‘bog standard’ basics. After that you can excel by attending the more advanced courses and learning so much more.

We do not intend to be the biggest hypnotherapy training college

However; we do intend to be one of the best. Each student is mentored throughout the course. As well as direct access to the lead trainer, so your questions are always answered. You will find our support, both during and after the course, to be second to none.

In the wider picture we have a mission to explore the potential of this exciting field. To make the public more aware of the power each of us has within us to regain our mental health. And to discover the untapped potential that can make our lives extraordinary. Our graduates are a vital means to achieve this education.

I have an absolute passion for helping people to be the best they can be - as a person and as a therapist. I suspect that you share this passion or you would not be reading this. I know that people can change their minds in milliseconds. Even about deep psychological issues. It does not take weeks to sort out an anxiety or phobia. Elimination occurs in 1-2 hours of high powered techniques.

Most hypnotherapy schools do not teach these phenomenal ways of helping people. They have not learned them or do not believe in them. You will have to ask them why, but I suspect the reason is their adherence to "Old World" psychological dogma.

Modern scientific work is proving that so much of the 'stuff' I was taught from 1980 onwards is rubbish. (That is my honest personal opinion, many will disagree).

So I have set out on a course to help therapists get past all this old hat stuff. And become an up-to-date hypnotherapist.

Be the 'go to' hypnotherapist in your area become a Flourish Programme Practitioner. You can be the person that changes peoples lives.
