The study of hypnosis

The ability to induce trance takes time to master and use the skill as an effective therapy. When properly trained, the ability to induce trance is an easy skill to acquire. The team at ICHP are world renowned trainers in hypnosis and hypnotherapy-psychotherapy. With years of ongoing practical experience, we make the study of hypnosis achievable and enjoyable.  

What you learn

When you study with us, you will learn the ethical, evidence-based neural application of hypnotic techniques in neuro-hypnopsychotherapy, including: 
  • Ensuring your client is a safe candidate for the application of hypnotic techniques
  • Establishing a trusting, secure and empathic client-centred relationship
  • Understanding the client's goals
  • Facilitating the journey towards goals, well-being, and self-discovery
  • When and how to refer if additional support is required
  • Ethical practice
Acquiring healing skills comes with great responsibility. Practitioners have a duty of care that must be exercised at all times. We operate within a strong code of ethics, which members must agree to while undergoing training and professional development. 


We are responsible for our emotions, thoughts, behaviours and psychosomatic systems. Our hypnotic methods and psychotherapeutic models will allow you to assist your clients in understanding these emotional states and changing their inner defense mechanisms. Through a variety of techniques, you will assist your client in overcoming self-limiting behaviours to achieve a healthy emotional state.
