Doing the clinical hypnotherapy course with Robert has been one of my favourite ever things. Robert is such an engaging and knowledgeable teacher and has made the course exciting and fun. He has allowed us to learn in our own way but with excellent guidance. I couldnt recommend this course more. An absolute privilege to be part of and to start my hypnotherapy journey with. - Bethan Protheroe (Qualified August 2021)

Doing this course has been pretty sensational, It has opened up my mind and awareness to a level beyond my comprehension. Whether you wish to set up in practice, self develop or just have a useful skillset at your disposal, this course is for you. Robert's approach is respectful and his consideration for others and honest approach is nothing short of exceptional. -

What is unique about our course?

There are many very good courses available on hypnosis, hypnotherapy and NLP. We believe, however, that our course offers a number of things that many others do not. For example:- 


Other points to note 

It is important that every student receives plenty of individual attention throughout the course. For that reason, the maximum class size will be restricted to around 6 or 7 students.
