Hypnosis Psychotherapy training is available to you through the National College of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy which has been training Hypnotherapists and Hypno-Psychotherapists since 1977.

If you are interested in becoming a UKCP psychotherapist then details of the NCHP courses in various locations are available here.

I trained initially with NCHP and became a tutor and member of their faculty several years ago. I am now Vice-Principal of the College and offer their training in Manchester.

I also offer supervision as a UKCP accredited supervisor to Hypno-Psychotherapists, for further details of that service, contact me here.

The training is sufficient to gain admittance to the UKCP and access to BACP as a psychotherapist, or to simply qualify as a hypnotherapist if that is the level you want to work to.

The courses are fully supportive and all the tutors are themselves practitioners which enables you to get practical advice as well as an excellent grounding in theory.

I became a therapist after suffering from panic and anxiety as a result of stress and overwork in my previous career as a Lawyer.

I came to NCHP after carrying out research into qualification routes and found their courses informative, enjoyable and hugely rewarding on a professional and personal level.

Now that I teach those courses, I have become the guide for further generations of students in their journey to becoming therapists.

I genuinely believe that Hypnosis Psychotherapy training with NCHP to become a registered Hypno-Psychotherapist gives you access to the very best level of tuition and support.

As always, I am happy to discuss with any potential candidate to provide more information on the content and the training process to help you decide if the life of a therapist is for you.

On a personal level, I left the Law because I believe this work is more important and I have never regretted that change of path for a moment.




The diagram below is a representation of the Japanese principle of Ikigai or ‘reason for being’ – it’s fairly self-explanatory.

If you can find something you love, the world needs, you can be paid for and you are good at then you can tick all four circles.

Where the four circles cross, you have your Passion, Mission, Profession and vocation.

If you can tick all four circles, you have found your reason for being.

I found mine.

I look forward to working with you to find yours.
