Course overview

This is a course for experienced and qualified hypnotherapists who work with, or would like to study, in-depth techniques of hypnoanalysis and related techniques.  A similar Advanced Diploma in Transpersonal Hypnotherapy is available for those interested in spiritual hypnosis.

Analytical hypnotherapy is often not covered extensively in modern live hypnotherapy training courses due to time constrictions and because "evidence-based" techniques are favoured.  If you are a practitioner fascinated by the possibilities of hypnoanalysis and would like to learn about it in depth, or to upgrade your previous training in the subject and find out how much more there is to know, this course is for you.

Following this course, you might well realise how much knowledge has been left out of certain hands-on professional hypnotherapy trainings!

No previous knowledge of psychoanalysis, Freud or psychodynamics is assumed as necessary concepts will be introduced as part of the relevant modules.

Many script examples are given which you can tailor to your specific needs until you are confident at working script-free.

Please note that this course does not concentrate om past life regression (i.e. regression to a previous incarnation) though this topic is briefly introduced, and if you would like to study past life therapy in depth, we have a separate Advanced Diploma in Transpersonal Hypnosis as well as a Diploma in Regression Therapy
