Hypnotherapy training courses worldwide

Setup in 1984 the London College of Clinical Hypnosis (LCCH) provides professional hypnotherapy and cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy training courses throughout the world including UK (London / Exeter / Manchester / Leeds / Birmingham), Scotland (Glasgow), Portugal, Malaysia and Singapore. More about the hypnotherapy courses we provide worldwide...

Practical skills based learning

During each training weekend you will see most hypnosis / hypnotherapy techniques demonstrated on a fellow member of the class by the lecturer and you will then have the opportunity to experience hypnosis and hypnotherapy yourself when working in pairs. As a result personal development is almost inevitable - in fact most students find it difficult to find any remaining personal issues to work with by the close of their training.

Our hypnosis and hypnotherapy training courses

We run a variety of hypnotherapy courses at a number of levels from introductory courses, courses to enable you to become a therapist yourself - leading to a Practitioner Diploma in Clinical Hypnosis - as well as courses for Medical Professionals.

About hypnosis and hypnotherapy

Hypnosis is a natural state of mind and being that we all enter into on a daily basis for example when waking up or falling asleep. Contrary to popular belief it is not the same thing as being asleep in fact most people hear much of what is being said and remember whatever they need to remember. Importantly when in a hypnotic state we remain fully in control and can open our eyes or move whenever we choose to.

Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnotic states in order to help resolve psychological or pscho-physiological conditions for example to control pain or overcome phobias. Modern forms of hypnotherapy incorporate techniques from other therapies such as NLP, EMDR, CBT and psychoanalysis to facilitate rapid change. This is commonly known as integrative psychotherapy. Hypnotherapy is a form of psychotherapy in its own right and hypnotherapy training is a form of psychotherapy training. In the case of physical illness hypnosis works with the mind body connection.

Conditions treated by clinical hypnosis and hypnotherapy

These include smoking cessation, alcohol control, drug / medication abuse, anxiety, depression, phobias, confidence, low self-esteem, pain, asthma, eczema, psoriasis headaches, migraines, tics, psychosexual issues, impotence, erectile dysfunction, trauma, PTSD and many, many other issues. Where possible we base treatment regimes on established hypnotherapy research.
