Fulfilling The Purpose of HTI

We believe that hypnotherapy, properly used, is the most powerful method yet developed to draw upon the deep subconscious resources of people to enable them to live fuller, happier, more successful lives. Our goal is

  • to teach hypnotherapy to the highest level
  • to train our students to apply powerful hypnotherapy techniques with clients.
  • to give interactive and supportive teaching to all students.

As experienced therapists ourselves, we know what you need to respond to the wide range of clients who seek help from you with hypnotherapy. Our training focuses on equipping you with an extensive set of effective skills and training you in adapting these to the needs of individual clients.

We work intensively and interactively with you as our student, to develop your potential for helping others – our students are stimulated by the creative challenges of our training, and the opportunity for making real, measurable gains in skills and understanding.

We include expert feedback in our class exercises, so you can change and develop yourself – being a hypnotherapist is challenging as each client is a unique individual, and it is also intensely rewarding and meaningful as meeting your clients’ needs requires creativity from you.

We know from our own extensive experience with clients that one size does not fit all and you need more than superficial techniques – so our training is designed to meet this challenge, to equip you for real work with clients. We work very hard, and so will you. We enjoy it, and our students tell us they do, too.

We aim to produce real confidence in our students – this comes from knowing, through your experience in our classes and supervised practice, that you have the ability to help people to change.

We are passionately committed to help you become a successful hypnotherapist.  And this is how we do it.

  • Our principal teacher, Dr. John Butler, one of the world’s most renowned hypnotherapists, personally teaches the great majority of the classes.
  • Our classroom teaching includes practical experiential exercises for students with expert feedback, and live expert demonstrations of techniques.
  • Our class size enables individual attention to each student from the teacher.

Our Training Programme

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 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.
