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. As part of your training you are encouraged to start practising from the first two days of the course onwards. When you graduate you will already have successfully treated and have testimonials from dozens of clients you’ve helped recover from issues such as anxiety, depression, panic attacks, phobia, smoking and more. We fully expect to celebrate you to going into successful practice.

The very high standard of training ensures that CPHT graduates are able to help people in many areas, including the clinical and medical areas of depression and anxiety. Previous graduates have forged strong bonds with the medical and helping professions.

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.”

2Your lecturers are highly qualified, engaging teachers, but most of all successful, experienced hypnotherapists

CPHT Principal David Newton is probably the most successful and experienced clinical practitioner in the country, with over 30,000 clinical hours experience, together with supervising student and qualified practitioners and leading the CPHT school. Your Lecturers, Gary Johannes and Ali Hollands run  consistently successful practices and have a passion for enabling success in their students. To read more about your lecturers click here

3Your training will put you at the forefront of the hypnotherapy profession

Your training is recognised as rigorous, practical and the most up to date course, taking into consideration the latest 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.  Course material is updated regularly to stay in line with the latest thinking and so you know your training will put you at the forefront of your profession.

We have our own Research Programme (CORP = CPHT Outcomes & Research Programme) running to gather evidence of client outcomes, which is affiliated with Bristol university. As part of your training you will add your clinical data to that research programme, which as far as we know, is the only one of its kind in the country. It really is an exciting time to be a hypnotherapist, particularly with CPHT!

4Your training and qualifications are accredited on the National Qualification Framework

Upon completion of the HPD, successful candidates will be awarded a certificate of achievement by NCFE. The HPD has been accredited by the NCFE as having measurable learning outcomes that have been benchmarked at Level 4 (using Ofqual’s Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF) level descriptors).

The NCFE is recognised as an Awarding Organisation by the qualification regulators for England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

NCFE accreditation gives formal recognition to our courses which result in the ‘award’ of a certificate of achievement. This award does not qualify you for a nationally recognised qualification.

nchThe NCH has been approved as an NCFE centre and the HPD has been accredited by the NCFE. NCFE accreditation gives assurance that the content of a training course is of a high standard and meets the rigorous requirements of a national awarding organisation.

5You are supported during training and onwards into your new career

You will be supported during your training which means you can contact your lecturers between training weekends for support and advice, and you will have access to the whole CPHT Team, should you need it. Once in practice your governing body will require to remain in formal supervision, the level of which is dependant on the Professional Association you join. This is an essential and valuable element of you being the best practitioner you can be. To support you we connect you with CPHT trained and externally accredited supervisors so you can find the best environment and supervisor for you.

As a graduate of a CPHT school you have exclusive access to an extensive and comprehensive on-going Continuous Professional Development (CPD) Programme, which is in place at CPHT in Bristol.  There is a requirement for you to keep up a minimum number of hours of CPD and we encourage you to continue learning in a solution focused environment.  Graduates say it is one of the real benefits of having been a CPHT student, because you have access to quality, well researched, cutting edge and practical ongoing training and you will meet solution focused hypnotherapists from all over the country at every stage of their career.

6You are being trained by highly successful and experienced practitioners

At this moment in time The Clifton Practice, established since 1995, in Bristol has 12 hypnotherapists with practices working out of The Clifton Practice. When it comes to hypnotherapy they have kept up-to-date and work using proven, modern techniques.  Every lecturer for every CPHT has a successful and sustainable practice, wherever they are in the country.  When you learn from someone who runs a successful practice you not only gain insight into the career you are training for but you know your lecturer understands the current therapy and business climate, challenges and opportunities.  This is a real benefit when you are launching your own practice.

7We help you get started in practice, helping you get a return on your investment

9Your training is ‘life changing’ in more ways than one

While our priority at CPHT is to enable people to go into successful practice it is inevitable that much of the training, positivity and knowledge permeate into everyday life.
