The London Hypnotherapy Academy diploma course is accredited by the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) and the Association for Professional Hypnosis and Psychotherapy (APHP). We have a two-stage qualification process which allows our graduates the opportunity to launch their professional practice under supervision after the successful completion of all face-to-face classroom sessions, case studies and question papers. You will then be awarded the LHA Diploma in Clinical Hypnosis and will be eligible to join the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) as a registered member and the Association for Professional Hypnosis & Psychotherapy (APHP) as a licentiate member. Once you have done this you will be able to set up your professional hypnotherapy practice.
All students are trained and prepared for the externally awarded, NCH Hypnotherapist in Practice Diploma. This is jointly awarded by the NCfE and the NCH. We encourage all students to complete this second stage of qualification but it is optional. If you wish to gain this externally awarded qualification, there is a one-off registration and assessment fee of £247. There is no formal written examination, but there is a portfolio of evidence which you complete at home and submit electronically. This can be done while you are still attending classes or up to 12 months after the end of your face-to-face training. Alternatively, you can achieve this qualification through the Professional Discussion (PD) route, which is conducted through two extended phone or Zoom assessments.
Undertaking Continual Professional Development is a commitment that professional therapists are expected to make in the years following their graduation. Many attend classroom training in order maintain and update their skills and knowledge. This helps them to continue to deliver effective and professional therapy to clients.
Lorraine is a certified supervisor for the NCH. She offers both group and individual supervision.
