SoftMind Icon placed left side of the section A Word from our Chief Consultant & CMD

Our Hypnotherapy Practitioner Certificate course incorporates Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) into our therapeutic process which means that our candidates are able to facilitate clients resolve problems. Vibrant psychotherapists such as Milton Erickson, Dave Elman who made Hypnosis and its benefits a lifelong study, and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) founder Richard Bandler, are among the authors of this dynamic approach whose influential work is featured in our training program.

Clinical practitioners complete our course with a comprehensive range of competence and expertise which they need to enable their clients to achieve their goals. These changes are positive and often dramatically life-changing. Change can be easier than you think through counselling.

Hypnosis is an act of love… Permission to enter trance is an act of love…
