Hypnotherapy Courses 

Allowing lasting change to be delivered easily at the unconcious level – which is where all behaviour is driven from

Our Hypnosis Practitioner course forms part of our 4 day Certified NLP Coach Course and entry to it is dependant on the student having completed our NLP Practitioner course. Our Hypnosis Master Practitioner course forms part of our 14 day Masters programme. All our Hypnosis courses are approved by the American Board on Hypnotherapy and offer delegates the opportunity to communicate with and make changes for the benefit of the client at the unconscious level. Given all behaviour is driven by the unconscious mind, changes at this level are akin to changing the auto-pilot for the client – so their thinking, feelings and behaviour change without the need to consciously remember to do anything differently!

Why learn Hypnosis?

You’ll learn effective hypnosis techniques to:

  • Change your life and assist others to change theirs
  • Create desired changes in behaviour at an unconscious level
  • Encourage mental and physical wellbeing
  • Create powerful motivational change in clients
  • Cement in NLP changes at the end of a coaching session
  • Overcome long term habits such as confidence, smoking etc
  • Enable you to engage the power of your mind in a healthy and positive way
  • Learn how to use hypnosis ethically and responsibly

On our Hypnosis courses, you’ll first learn what Hypnosis is and what it isn’t. So many people are like our Lead Trainer was when she was first introduced to Hypnosis – her prior experience had not been a positive one and she had pre-conceived ideas about what Hypnosis was all about. Being a control freak, she told the trainer ‘ain’t no-one going to be controlling my mind’. The comment itself shows that Laura didn’t really understand what Hypnosis was – because you are always in charge of your mind, and no-one can make you do anything you don’t want to do. By lunchtime on the first day of her first Hypnosis course, she was convinced it was the best relaxation she’d had in years and was delighted with how light and positive she was feeling!

As with all our courses, we equip you with the knowledge and understanding so you can practice on the course under the watchful eye of your trainer, building confidence as you work logically through the sections of the course. You’ll find the 2 days very practical, fascinating, with maximum ‘hands-on’ experience and exciting! You will find that you can successfully use hypnosis after only 2 days with us. How do we teach it in 2 days? – Simple. Hypnosis is about precision language and rapport. To enable us to teach hypnosis in this time frame, we only accept graduates of our NLP Practitioner programme (or other training providers known personally to Unleash Your Potential Ltd). This means we know that delegates have the language skills and rapport skills necessary to be great at hypnosis.

What is Hypnosis?

It’s simply a state of relaxation and has been around for many hundreds of thousands of years. It’s an altered state of consciousness which enables the mind to be open to suggestion. It’s widely accepted as a method for helping people make changes at the unconscious level (because the unconscious mind drives our behaviour, this means changes take place faster than with other talking therapies such as counselling). By engaging the unconscious, creative part of the brain, the mind is given suggestions that it can choose to take in order to bring about the desired results. The effectiveness of Hypnosis is directly related to the ability of the Hypnotherapist to influence the unconscious mind. All hypnosis is, in fact, self-hypnosis and this means that the client is always in charge – if a hypnotherapist makes a suggestion that is against the values of the client, the client will not take them on board and often a suggestion against someone’s values is the fastest way to bring someone out of hypnosis (although we don’t advocate this!). NLP and Time Line Therapy are advanced ways of using hypnotic techniques for helping people change quickly without the need for formal hypnotic induction. Hypnosis has been scientifically proven to be effective in cases of smoking, weight loss, stress reduction, motivation and pain control. To read more about what hypnosis is click here ….

Why book our Hypnosis Course?

There are many reasons why people choose our courses. Some choose us for our high standards, quality of our trainers and courses – ‘you explain everything clearly and it’s easy for me to get it’. Many people join us because of the way we are able to provide both personal and professional development on our courses. Some book with us because they have been referred to us by a previous delegate, or they’ve heard of the support we provide delegates from the moment they book. Others book because we’re accredited by the ABNLP & ABH (American Board of NLP & American Board of Hypnosis). Our Lead Trainer for this course, Laura Evans is qualified to deliver Hypnosis Practitioner & Hypnosis Master Practitioner, which means you can qualify at both levels with the same provider.

At Unleash Your Potential, we teach in a way that means you can put things into practice straight away.
