Training Courses with ICHP Australia

    Advanced Diploma

    This advanced level Course takes the Diploma graduate on to the more advanced practice aspects of Hypnotic techniques and Hypno-psychotherapeutic approaches which have proved so successful in dealing with serious on-going stress, post-traumatic stress, serious depression and the more difficult anxiety disorders as well as providing support in emergencies, in preparation for surgery and in pain management.  It introduces the Diploma graduate to working with the terminally ill in very deep trance as well as some of the more sophisticated mind-body healing approaches deriving from modern research in Neuro-science.  The course also introduces some well established and proven “brief therapy” approaches which are particularly suited to the addition of Hypnotic techniques and which research has shown increase effectiveness by a factor of between 2 and 3.

    Successful graduation from the Diploma course is a pre-requisite for the Advanced Diploma course.  Students are required to complete a further 740 hrs (which may also be reduced by granting recognition for prior learning and/or current practice).  At least 170 hrs must be focused on increasing practical skills and on the application of those skills in clinical work.  The remaining hours are dedicated towards advancing theoretical understanding and research.

    The course is intensely practical and requires students to attend two (2) 6 day intensive practical sessions. It is also possible to gain RPL from the Professional Development list of weekend Workshops that ICHP(Australia) holds from time to time. The total Course hours are usually spread over 6-9 months.
