30 Month Season Pass for Hypnotherapy Training – CPD

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails.  Explore, Dream, Discover.” –Mark Twain

If you are a qualified hypnotherapist, then the Anglo European College of Therapeutic Hypnosis would like to offer you the opportunity to do just as the Mark Twain quote suggests and truly immerse yourself in this field while you explore, dream and discover…..

  • Great Hypnotherapy Training for CPD –
  • Fun education among your peers
  • Ongoing networking
  • Bulk purchase of training – great value because of discounted cost.
  • Can book early on a particular course or seminar.

For any hypnotherapist looking to be at the very top of the field, looking to maximise their knowledge, build and advance skills, then this is an opportunity to do that also.

What Hypnotherapy Training?

We offer a substantial discount on course fees with our season pass When you invest in a season pass, you can attend any or all of our training courses throughout the next 30 months. If you attend our 5 Day Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy (CBH) course, our 10 Day Advanced Hypnotherapist Course, our 5 Day Hypnotic Coaching Course, that would usually come to a total of over £3000.00. That is not including the one day seminars we run which you can also attend. With the season pass,  you can also attend any webinars we put on (our book writing series runs annually, and we run specialist webinars too) and our Business Development Coaching Academy. Our annual business development coaching academy for hypnotherapists is usually over £700.00 too – and worth every penny, I hasten to add. AND…. What’s more, we’ll also permit you to attend any or all of our own Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma too! This course is usually £2300.00 plus Vat (a total of £2760.00). With the season pass you attend it for the learning this time around if you want to, not for the qualification – as you are already trained. You can however update your knowledge and attend these 165 hours for up to date, evidence based diploma material – you’ll get to revise, you’ll get to see differences from your own diploma course, you’ll get to revisit topics that you may like to build your knowledge of and much more besides.

The season pass is just £2000.00 plus Vat.

We also offer a payment plan to spread the costs for a slight premium, – you can see the payment plan below.

In the next two and a half years, our season pass will help you to do the following:

  • Become a published author.
  • Train and become qualified as an evidence based Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapist.
  • Add coaching to your existing skills and work with individuals looking to achieve more instead of just therapy clients, and add an additional revenue stream to your earnings.

  • Discover the joy and the expanse of the evidence base that exists in the field of hypnotherapy.
  • Create more, serve more, love more and be more excited about your work.
  • Engage with a vibrant, supportive and open minded hypnotherapist community – you’ll make professional and personal friends with leading peers.
  • And More

Hypnotherapy Diploma

You must have a hypnotherapy diploma already and must provide copies of your qualification as evidence.

Full Qualifications as laid out in Prospectus

You will gain the full qualifications given in any of the courses you attend as long as you attend class and complete the required coursework to the expected standards and are able to demonstrate that you have achieved the learning outcomes for each course. The only exception is with our diploma course, which you can simply attend.  

You Select Which Course You Want To Attend.

You simply advise us which of the courses you wish to attend and fill out the booking form for each event adhering to the college’s code of conduct, and we book you in accordingly. This season pass offers you two and a half years (30 months) of the most up-to-date, cutting edge and comprehensive education in the field of hypnotherapy, coaching and business development for hypnotherapists.

Ongoing Education

You may have heard the expression, often attributed to the Greek Philosopher Aristotle, that “the whole is greater than the sum of it’s parts.” When you think of a house, it has a wide number of individual components that were used for it’s construction; bricks, cement, wood, tiles, panes of glass and so on. Yet when it is painted, carpeted, and subsequently lived in and adorned with the love and adornments of those who dwell in it, it becomes more than the sum of it’s construction components. It becomes a home that is valued much more on a number of different levels. Likewise, I believe that committing yourself to ongoing education, taking measurable action, having opportunities and possibilities as well as guidance and support that we offer up with this season pass is exponentially more than simply being able to attend a number of courses. Relationships are developed, knowledge is expanded vastly, skills are advanced in ways that isolated trainings can not compete with. With this Season Pass we offer you that, and I think you’ll discover much, much more besides.

Hypnotherapy Professionalism and Training

Advanced Hypnotherapist Diploma Training

Just look at the psychological professions in the mental healthcare fields;

  • psychologists undergo many years of training, studying, researching and practice,
  • psychiatrists attend medical school and then many subsequent years training, researching and studying,
  • mental health nurses undergo many years of training

The vast majority of other talk therapies tend to require more intense, prolonged amounts of study, research, practice in order to work with the general public using their chosen modality of therapy than most hypnotherapists have.

Most hypnotherapists have 10 months of training, gain a diploma and then are sent out into the world as a professional.

The truth is that the vast majority of hypnotherapists that I meet are struggling to make a living and are ill-equipped to do so.

Of course, there are lots of marketing ‘gurus’ and business development experts who claim to have answers, systems, gimmicks that you apply universally, but are often simply attempting to make more money for themselves to supplement their own ailing therapy practice.  Those that seek out the answers in this way are often left wanting.

My answer has long been that the best way to develop one’s business and professional standing as a hypnotherapist, is to become better at what you do.

Of the masses of hypnotherapists that I encounter, many of them have attended courses that did not even match national occupational standards for a minimum number of classroom hours attended, and many are being taught the same perpetuated nonsense, pseudoscience and myth that their teachers churn out, who were taught the same and who perpetuate the nonsense without applying any critical thinking skills.

The truth is that many hypnotherapists simply are not good enough and their clients do not get long-term benefits from their investment of time and money.

When a hypnotherapist is genuinely very good, knowledgeable, skilled with great interpersonal skills, they get better results in their therapy rooms. When they get better results in their therapy rooms, their business flourishes – they get referrals, people talk about their good experiences, and a foundation of success, competence and credibility is forged.

Of course, there is more to developing a successful business, but this point I make is key.

Hypnotherapists who do not think in those terms are often looking in the wrong direction for answers and solutions.

They invest their limited budget on attempting to find the answers in systems, social media marketing, SEO, swish websites, and all sorts of other gimmicks promoted by “gurus” who cannot prove how busy their own therapy rooms are, when INSTEAD  hypnotherapists should be investing in their single main asset – themselves (their ability as a hypnotherapist).

As a hypnotherapist, you offer a service, you offer hypnotherapy, and you are offering that delivered by yourself.

You need to be a viable and outstanding option in the eyes of your existing and potential clients. So good hypnotherapists read, they research, they learn how to develop themselves in a wide variety of ways and this is important.

Being able to apply ourselves in accordance with Stephen Covey’s “7 Habits of Highly Successful People” and learning how to be productive, and developing your soft skills, sharpening your brain, being fit and healthy; all these things are going to do us good….

Yet so many hypnotherapists get their diploma, then learn EFT in two days, learn to become a Reiki master in a few days, and tack on a number of add-ons they can list on their bios, email signatures and business cards, and assume they never need to train in any more hypnotherapy.

They think they have got it nailed. They invested a lot of time and money in that initial diploma training, it does not need to be built upon! That line of thought is exactly why hypnotherapists DO NEED advanced hypnotherapy training.

Primarily because they clearly need critical thinking skills.

Critical thinking skills equip you to examine the field and become more effective as a result.

I have heard individuals glibly suggest that much of what I am about to write is purely academic, yet evidence suggests that the client derives more benefit and gain from an in-depth, correct understanding of our subject and will perceive the hypnotherapist as far more credible – when a hypnotherapist is perceived as credible by the client, that perception and belief will also advance the efficacy of the treatment.

Think Critically about Hypnotherapy

One of the elements of our advanced hypnotherapy training course that enables the hypnotherapist to engage with more challenging academic literature in hypnotherapy, including hypnotherapy research in critical thinking skills.

Critical thinking and a scholarly mindset also develops credibility with medical professionals and creates an attitude that advances the professional and personal life of the hypnotherapist.

Some of the elements included are as follows:

  • Being a sophisticated listener and reader: How to critique claims made in hypnotherapy circles, especially on training and by peers.
  • Logical and academic argumentation: How to recognise logical fallacy and how to debate effectively.
  • Academic referencing: How to employ and understand APA, Harvard and Footnote referencing.
  • Levels of analysis and levels of abstraction: How hypnotherapists work at various levels.
  • Challenging received wisdom: A critical examination of much of what is taken for granted in our profession that have not been proven, in order to develop a practitioner’s critical thinking.

This includes:

a) ’rapport is essential for effective therapy’ (although it is pleasant, other professionals help us without rapport, some clients find success despite low rapport and others do not, despite good rapport).

b) ‘We should only take on motivated clients’ (isn’t motivation a presenting issue worthy of our attention?).

c) ‘A long-standing issue requires longer-term therapy’ (solution-focused therapists take issue with this).

d) ‘All hypnosis is self-hypnosis’ (where is the hypnotherapist in this dynamic? Why are we making our influence invisible? A culture increasingly suspicious of power?).

e) ‘Your unconscious mind is a wonderful intuitive resource’ (cognitive theories do not generally entertain the concept of the ‘unconscious,’ is there really such a thing?).

f) ‘You will always be in control’ (what about falling asleep, spontaneous or induced amnesia for posthypnotic suggestions, being forced to think of something due to questioning, or abreaction? Is it ethical to say this?).

g) ‘It’s good for clients to cry and get it out of their system’ (‘catharsis’, ‘abreacting’ or ‘purging’ can make matters worse, re-traumatise, cause embarrassment, possibly even waste time. Feeling better afterwards is hardly surprising and not great evidence!).

h) ‘Smoking should be a single session formula’ (this is a very common model in hypnotherapy, yet most other presenting issues are more sessions and evidence clearly shows that more sessions for stop smoking results in higher success rate. Why are single session stop smoking programmes so popular?).

If I return to my main point here today though, it is that many hypnotherapists do not believe they need advanced hypnotherapy training, so is there truly a need for it?

Why do hypnotherapists need an advanced training?
What is the point?
My belief is that an advanced hypnotherapy training is not just something that is helping the hypnotherapist to be more successful with clients and build a better business, but is also developing the entire field of hypnotherapy and the perception of it.
The field of hypnotherapy is very much on the fringe (at best) of therapy and psychological fields still today, and an incessant belief that you have all the training you need with your initial diploma is a popular one, and one that is potentially keeping the field of hypnotherapy on the fringes!

Some of the needs for advanced hypnotherapy training are as follows:

  • Improve standards and service to the public.
  • Engage newly qualified hypnotherapists with quality CPD and to see its value.
  • Invigorate and inform the practice of experienced practitioners.
  • Encourage higher level, academic and critical thinking.
  • Instil the importance of better quality reflective practice.
  • Promote new perspectives, build a diversity of approaches.
  • Properly understand the the evidence base of the field of hypnotherapy.
  • Know the literature well – it underpins our practical skills and advances them in turn.
  • Embed core training concepts by revisiting them in a new light.
  • Patch in important knowledge and skills that initial training may have missed or where understanding is poor.

To become a more successful hypnotherapist whose clients derive greater gains and successful benefits.

Hypnotherapists are not the only ones who benefit from this, by becoming better at what they do, they get to raise the standards of the field in general terms, this is good for us all because the perception of the public becomes better and rosier and it is better for clients who derive more gain, more professionalism, better results.
The raison d’être of an advanced hypnotherapy training programme is to offer the hypnotherapist a clear advancement on the original hypnotherapy training.
It needs to be substantive, wholly distinctive and healthily challenging, not simply offering ‘more of the same’ that was taught on an initial diploma course.
It provides new knowledge, new skills, new philosophies, new approaches, new techniques and encourages a considered, respectful and healthily critical exploration of hypnotherapy research.
To revert to an earlier point, an advanced hypnotherapy diploma course needs to have a good return on investment (ROI).
That is, it needs to help the hypnotherapist develop skills, knowledge and abilities that will grow the hypnotherapist’s business in an effective fashion.
