Our teaching program

Our course content has been designed and developed by Dr. John Butler, based on his extensive learning, experience with clients and teaching internationally over 30 years. Every item on the programme has earned its place there.
Our programme teaches core hypnotherapy throughout – we do not pad or fill with other items. Our students have told us they really appreciate that they are learning core material from start to finish, right up to the end of the last day.
Our training covers an extensive range of methods of inducing a hypnotic trance, including rapid inductions, so that you can induce hypnosis confidently with different clients.We teach a comprehensive set of programming methods, both direct and indirect/ conversational, so you can give your clients the best options for each of them as individuals.

We provide teaching in advanced hypnotherapy methods for performance enhancement in activities, including sports, arts, education, business, career and personal development, working with individuals and groups.

We teach in-depth hypnotherapy methods so you can help clients who are limited in their response to programming, because of inner conflicts and deeply-rooted unhelpful ideas. Some clients need support to develop new meaning and value systems to help them to enjoy their lives, to cultivate hope and to esteem themselves on their own merits. Hypnotherapy, properly understood, is a powerful resource for therapeutic change in these clients.

Our training draws on the vast resources of hypnotherapy as developed for over two centuries of academic and clinical practice. We want you and your clients to benefit from the rich resources available. We select the best and most practically useful methods from practitioners such as Dave Elman, Milton Erickson and Gil Boyne, among others.

We look ahead to when you are practising professionally. We are available to provide mentoring and supervision in accordance with your needs when you start in practice. We’re aware that as a graduate you start out from an individual position and have an individual path, so we listen and advise you accordingly.

Our training makes you eligible for membership of many professional bodies in the field, as we meet and often far exceed the standards required. We have selected a number of professional bodies for specific affiliation with our school, on the basis of their standards. Our graduates are eligible for membership of the American Council of Hypnotist Examiners (est. 1980), the British Society of Hypnotherapists (est. 1950) and the British Register of Complementary Practitioners (Hypnotherapy Section) (est. 1989). We are the only hypnotherapy school in the UK approved by the American Council of Hypnotist Examiners, an organization with an international membership and among the very highest standards in the field.
