  • All our tutors are experienced teachers, as well as being, themselves, NCHP trained and experienced practitioners
  • Support from a long established well-staffed UK based organisation throughout not only your training but also your whole career!
  • We actively enforce all our policies: they are not just there for show, they are integral to the College and our philosophy of ethical practice
  • We encourage students to ask questions or make comments about the training at any stage and will do our best to meet your needs
  • Ethical practice is crucial and we teach it so comprehensively that you will be certain of how to act when you set up in practice
  • As an NCHP-A trainee you may apply for membership of the UKCP as a 'Candidate in training'
  • We know that you want to know exactly what you will be learning, so we publish all the details of the structures of our courses. We want you to be sure you have made the right choice!
  • We train small groups of students, which we believe is important so that you get individual attention. Some schools have as many as 50 students in a class! We are also not limited to training in one location. Our NCHP-A courses will be run in our Gold Coast (QLD) premises. However, our students can choose to attend subject modules NCHP-UK offers in London, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Oxford, East Midlands (Leicester), Newcastle, South Wales and Glasgow if that suits their level of study objectives
  • Past students are welcome to re-attend any stage of their training FREE OF CHARGE (subject to available space).  This is just one of the ways we support our students. We believe that we are the only school of our type to offer this opportunity free of charge
  • NCHP-A Hypnosis Training and Hypnotherapy Training courses adhere to the National Occupation Standards for Hypnotherapy in the UK (the Principal and Managing Director of the NCHP-UK were members of the working group who wrote these)

  • Our Principal in Australia and the NCHP-UK Principal and MD have over 45 years combined clinical experience and over 20 years combined experience in Hypnotherapy Training, Hypnosis Training and Psychotherapy Training.  We have the experience to help guide you successfully in your new career
  • Our complete Diploma Course is a validated post graduate programme (45 Pg Credits awarded by UK Open University after completion of Stages 1-3).  We have enjoyed this level of recognition since 1997.
  • The Diploma Course as offered in Australia has been structured to meet the requirements for Professional clinical membership of the Australian Hypnotherapists Association and of the Australian Society of Clinical Hypnotherapists
  • The NCHP-A, though its alliance with the NCHP-UK, has meaningful and senior external accreditation, notably with the UK Council for Psychotherapy, European Association for Psychotherapy and the European Association for Hypno-Psychotherapy.Education.  The NCHP courses attract substantial UK Open University-specific credit rating and demonstrable access to other areas of reputable higher education
  • Some enquirers have asked why the National College is not affiliated with certain 'Hypnotherapy Organisations'.  It is our policy that we will only align ourselves with organisations which have meaningful and verifiable means of accreditation.  The profession has many organisations which will give you a certificate for a fee.  We, as one of the oldest schools of professional hypnosis and psychotherapy, believe that we should take a leadership position with this and not support bodies which have only been created to give our meaningless credentials and to turn a profit for its owners
