PART 1  Weeks 1 & 2

KNOWLEDGE & SKILLS BASED RESIDENTIAL FORTNIGHT  (144 HRS)

Since hypnotherapy is a skills based profession, practical training is essential
This two week residential part of the course is a fundamental component of the training and students must attend if they wish to qualify.
During this time, students undergo ‘IMMERSION TRAINING’, learning, in a fully supervised and supportive environment, the practical application of hypnosis for a wide variety of presenting complaints. Many undergo life changing self development during this period of time.

During week 1, participants are involved in learning induction and deepening procedures and management of the hypnotic state, including suggestion therapy and termination of the hypnosis. Each student also has the opportunity to experience a session of hypnoanalysis facilitated by Kate.

Week 2 introduces students to the practice of hypnoanalysis, the effective management of abreaction and past life regression as a tool of analysis.  Additional input in topics such as business start up, management and marketing are also included

Training is carried out by fully experienced tutors, supplemented by specialist lecturers and visiting, practising hypnotherapists.
The remainder of the course is carried out on a distance learning basis with extensive feedback being provided as students’ progress.

PART 2 Weeks 3 - 8

APPLICATION & EXPERIENCE BASED (96 HRS)

During the six weeks following Part 1, students are required to carry out eight case studies, utilising suggestion therapy, for which they are covered by the school's insurance. These case studies are submitted at the end of this period for assessment and extensive feedback provided.
In order to carry out these case studies, students will be required to enlist volunteers, research the various presenting complaints (all notes provided) and recommend, with additional guidance where necessary, approaches to treatment.

Student compiled reports on the implementation of the hypnotic techniques and management of the hypnotic state, from initial consultation to termination and post session reaction, will be the bases for assessment.

PART 3 Weeks 9 – 14

PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE (96HRS)

Toward the end of Part 2, an open book exam paper will be issued, designed in such a way as to ensure that course participants have read and fully understood not only the coursework and the associated support information but also its implications.   Six weeks is allowed for completion.
Feedback on the submitted case studies will be sent out during Week 14.

PART 4 Weeks (15 – 20)

REVISION & RESEARCH ( 96 HRS)

Students are expected to continue their own research and study during this period when their exam submissions will be marked.
Reflecting the requirements of most industry lead bodies for evidence, postgraduate, of continuing professional development, the student will require to submit a record of this each week and there will be opportunity for discussion of topics studied.
Responses to case study feedback will also be submitted during this period.

PART 5 Weeks (21 – 46)

LICENTIATE POST QUALIFICATION DEVELOPMENT  (ALLOCATED STUDY TIME FOR FINAL SUBMISSIONS – 24 HRS)

On successful completion of Parts 1- 4 the NSPH will offer membership to the graduate, and a Mentor will be allocated by the NSPH who will be available for support and guidance for the following 6 months. There will always however, be experienced hypnotherapists to call on, whenever required, through the NSPH hotline.

During that period, after obtaining necessary insurance to practise, the graduate will be required to complete two further case studies involving hypnoanalysis in order to retain their membership.

Completion of Part 5 to the necessary standard will gain the graduate FULL MEMBERSHIP of the NSPH and the designation MNSPH.

Postgraduate Level Training

Two weekends per annum will be provided by the School, supplemented by further PG training opportunities in Yorkshire, for the support of existing Members of the NSPH.

Recent graduates and individuals who may be returning to practise after a period of absence are encouraged to consider the additional opportunity these weekends provide for updating and/or refreshing skills.

There is no formal requirement to attend, but the NSPH Code of Conduct recommends that all practising Members undertake some form of Continuing Professional Development and attendance at these weekends is certificated and contributes toward this obligation.

The weekends also provide the opportunity for practising therapists to undergo some therapeutic experience themselves, which many find assists in the maintenance of their own overall mental, physical and emotional balance.
