The Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma (HPD)
One of the many reasons why people choose to study Hypnotherapy with CPHT is the available options for ongoing study after the primary Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma (HPD) course. The ten-month HPD course equips our students to work with a very broad range of people with a wide variety of symptoms. In fact, upon completion of the HPD course there aren’t many things that our graduates cannot help their clients cope better with.
So, whilst we are proud to offer a complete training course, that does not mean that learning should stop. Most successful Hypnotherapists will want to do more Continual Professional Development (CPD) than the minimum required by their Professional Association(s). CPHT offer a wide range of Continuing Professional Development courses. These are run both across the country and online via video conferencing/webinars. They range from a focus on different conditions to understanding more about how other modalities work. Some may be more business oriented to help graduates run their businesses more effectively or more profitably.
The Advanced Hypnotherapy Diploma (AHD)
But it is also the provision of additional externally verified qualifications that sets CPHT apart. CPHT trained Hypnotherapists may want to go on to study the Advanced Hypnotherapy Diploma (AHD). This qualification has been accredited by the NCFE as having measurable learning outcomes that have been benchmarked at Level 5 (HPD is level 4) using Ofqual’s Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF) level descriptions. The AHD involves the completion of a number of specified CPDs. After which they complete the provide evidence that they understand each learning outcome in the module. These build in to a portfolio of evidence (similar to the one required for the HPD). The CPDs include CBT, Mindfulness, and Psychoneuroimmunolgy. Alex Brounger leads the AHD. He is also the Senior Lecturer for CPHT Scotland (Edinburgh and Glasgow) and CPHT Belfast.
The Supervisor’s Course:
In addition, after some years in practice Graduates from CPHT (whether it be Edinburgh, Glasgow or indeed any of the CPHT schools) may want to become a Supervisor. This enables them to use their experience and knowledge to help other Hypnotherapists work with their clients and build their businesses. Like the Advanced Hypnotherapy Diploma, the Supervisor’s Course is a Level 5 course run by CPHT’s Alex Brounger.
