Responsive Hypnotherapy Hypnotherapy Training

Responsive Hypnotherapy Programme

This is actually a phenomenal combined programme gives you the complete training of two level 4 hypnotherapy training courses. The nationally accredited Clinical Hypnotherapy Practitioner Programme and the Responsive Hypnotherapy Practitioner Programme.

You will get all of the Clinical Hypnotherapy Practitioner Programme. Nothing is missed out. You will also get all of the Responsive Hypnotherapy Practitioner Programme. Again nothing is missed out

The Responsive Hypnotherapy Practitioner Programme used to be a 6 day post graduate advanced hypnotherapy training course. It is the precursor of the NeuroHack Therapy Programme. It is still an advanced hypnotherapy training course compared to most of those on the market today.

To allow for the advanced training there is additional self study to be completed at home. Most of this is the NLP Practitioner course. Which you will learn by watching 4 recorded days of training. This was a live course.


It is impossible for me to timetable this course as a separate entity. Due to the success of Children’s Hypnotherapy and NeuroHack Therapy programmes.

It is only available:

Responsive Hypnotherapy - Making Life Easier.

I chose the tag line Making Life Easier because it does that for the client and for the hypnotherapist.

It makes life easier for the client because they get rapid permanent relief from their problems

It makes life easier for the hypnotherapist because they have a system that works for most things for most people most of the time and is very easy to use.


How do you learn?

On your first day you will experience a hypnotic trance. And you will learn how to hypnotise other people on the course – and do it. You will be hypnotised by a fellow student on weekend 1. Not weeks into the course. On the first Sunday you will be using a basic metaphor hypnotherapy script to your ‘client’.

This course moves fast and to CCH Practice Makes Perfect. To us PMP is one of our mantras.

We go from basics – on Day 1 we assume you have no hypnotherapy or psychology skills at all. That is how we prefer it. We start you off on basic Clinical Hypnotherapy Practitioner skills. After some days of training we move up to higher level Responsive Hypnotherapy skills. Your are training gives you every skill, technique, template and protocol you need. You will learn all that you need for the GHR accreditation and so much more on top. You are not overburdened with loads of out-of-date psychological theory. You get everything you need to be a Clinical Hypnotherapy Practitioner.

GHSC awards the General Qualification in Hypnotherapy Practice (GQHP). It is available to all graduates that join them. This is the industry standard course. It is generally recognised as being equal to a Level 4 qualification.

What you get on the Clinical Hypnotherapy Practitioner part of the programme

You will complete some theory during the attendance part of the course. But quite a lot of the classroom time is for demonstrations and your practice sessions.

Much of the theory is completed in your own time from the 20 manuals and recordings provided.

These videos are from previous courses; so it is as if you were in that lesson as part of the group.

The videos are of 6 weekends of live hypnotherapy training. Plus 4 days of the NLP Practitioner course. So all-in-all you get the around 16 days of training to watch as many times as you like.

The videos are on an external drive. This will also include pdfs’ of the manuals. Plus pdf’s of scripts for many problems and an assortment of ‘Bonus’ items that will be of use to you.

Printed manuals are in a folder and given to you on the first day. The NLP manual is not printed as much of this work is home study.

Demonstrations – it is a necessity to take part. As are student practice sessions; being hypnotised by a fellow student. These sessions will be observed and marked

Why this course is different to most others

This Clinical Hypnotherapy Practitioner course is our own. Written by Richard Wain, for Cressingham College of Hypnotherapy. We do not teach a course written by someone else years ago.

The course undergoes regular revision. Until recently this course had 15 modules we now have 20 due to being rewritten and much more content added.

We are not part of a nationwide franchise that sells exactly the same course all over the country.


Level 3 NLP Practitioner Course

This module is a significant part of the Hypnotherapy Practitioner course.

Basic Ericksonian language patterns are integrated into the NLP Practitioner training. This NLP Practitioner training utilises the parts of NLP useful for therapy. It is a Therapeutic NLP Practitioner course.

In the 1950s, Milton H. Erickson developed a radically different approach to hypnotism. This become known as Ericksonian hypnotherapy or Neo-Ericksonian hypnotherapy. Erickson made use of an informal conversational approach with many clients. Also complex language patterns, and therapeutic strategies. The effects of which are rapid and very powerful.

Ericksonian hypnotherapy uses indirect suggestions as they are much harder to resist. Usually they are not recognised by the conscious mind as suggestions. This is because they are usually disguised as stories or metaphors.

What is Responsive Hypnotherapy?

The basic premise of this type of work is that people can change their mind fast. It does not take weeks to change your mind – it takes seconds. When someone is ready they can let go and feel the changes as they happen.

Much of this work is in a rather light and natural trance. The induction used is something the client already has in their mind that makes them chilled out. Usually the client enters a deeper state of their own non-conscious volition. This process is natural, indirect, conversational and non-threatening to the client.

Responsive Hypnotherapy does not look at the client’s past nor analyse why they feel the way they do.  It focuses on what is happening now, how to move the client on to a predetermined and positive outcome. Painful abreactions rarely occur. This was one of the main driving forces behind the creation of this style of hypnotherapy.

Another important factor in the creation of this approach is the speed of efficacy. Most problems eliminated for most people in two sessions. Even three or four issues at the same time!

Every client is unique so the path to the future is different too. There are no scripts to follow only the needs of the client’s map of their changing world. The hypnotherapist is a highly skilled interactive guide.

He or she is not a dictator, provider of suggestions, giver of information or reader of a script.

You will need to be able to tell a story, non-scripted with all the elements your client needs to make changes. The techniques and protocols provided rely on this.

The hypnotherapist requires a significant degree of intuitive understanding. They observe their client. Identify the client’s modes of communication - as verbal, nonverbal. And accepts their interpretation of reality.

The hypnotherapist quite rapidly helps the client to change their thoughts, emotions and behaviours. By using the specialised techniques they will be learning. During the process the client draws on the talents they already have. And use these to feel and live the changes as they happen.


How does Responsive Hypnotherapy work?

The process is in a style that is non-rigid, fluid and responsive to the needs of the client. It is almost totally client led so is easy and meets little psychological resistance. The mind is not forced or coerced in any way. Self-created changes are far more powerful that given suggestions.

Hypnotherapy for children and adolescents standards of training includes a portfolio of evidence Assessments

There is no final written exam at the end of the Combined Hypnotherapy Practitioner and Responsive Hypnotherapy Programme. Assessment is throughout the course by direct observation of your performance. Also through your homework answers and recordings. Most modules have written assessmen to complete. All Level 3/4 courses have module assessments to complete

You will have feedback throughout the course. If you are having problems they will discuss them with you – we want you to pass. You must complete all elements of the course before your diploma can be awarded.

You will not get your qualification until all coursework is to the required standard. The time limit on this course is 12 months but do not use this as an excuse to not complete homework and assessments. Once you get behind it becomes more difficult to complete the work required.

You will need retain a portfolio of your recordings, scripts and question answers. This is for possible moderation by a representative of ACCPH. This portfolio should be digital not paper based.
