Leading the way in trainingWe believe that our Hypno-Psychotherapy Diploma is one of the most comprehensive Practitioner Diploma courses available to prospective students, combining hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, NLP & solution-focused counseling.

What We Offer
The Psycho-Semantics Institute (PSI) has been delivering professional training in the field of hypnotherapy, psychotherapy and solution-focused counselling since 1989.
The Practitioner Diploma course offered by PSI, has been assessed and validated at Practitioner Level by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC) UK. Successful graduates are eligible for professional registration with the General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR), the GHSC’s Registering Agency, together with the acquisition of the industry-based award – the General Qualification in Hypnotherapy Practice (GQHP). This is in addition to the PSI qualification, the Diploma in Hypno-Psychotherapy. The course is available to anyone with the commitment to carry out the required study.
We believe that our Hypno-Psychotherapy Diploma is one of the most comprehensive Practitioner Diploma courses available to prospective students. Many training schools choose to offer hypnotherapy training to Practitioner level, followed by an advanced diploma in hypnotherapy. At PSI, the two are effectively combined, thereby offering you not just a complete and thorough level of training but offering value for money.
Our diploma course doesn’t just cover hypnotherapy, but brief psychotherapy, NLP and solution-focused counselling too. As a result, the qualification you acquire is a Diploma in Hypno-Psychotherapy, setting you apart from those that graduate elsewhere as pure hypnotherapists.
Our mission is simple: to teach and nurture students that will graduate from PSI, equipped with the knowledge, expertise and confidence, ready to set up in practice and build a successful business, should they choose to do so.
So how do we offer all this for the same price? All the topics, techniques and practice you need are covered in 120 hours of face-to-face teaching. The balance of theory and practical exercises ensures you understand and fully grasp the content and the techniques required. We don’t ‘pad’ the course out with unnecessary hours practicing and re-practicing techniques that can effectively be learnt in half the time. If you need further help in a particular area, we concentrate on that. Once you’ve learnt it and fully get it, we move on. That way, we cover more, at the same time as enabling you to feel confident in all areas. The course moves with each of you at a pace that is right for you. Yes, the course is intensive, but the end result is most definitely worth it!
This course is a full practitioner level course totaling over 450 hours of study. Anything less than this is not recognised by the GHR as practitioner status. Some practitioner diplomas have around half this level of tuition and study, which in fact means they are ‘foundation level diplomas’. With these, you will not be able to secure registration with a recognised body as a practitioner or indeed acquire insurance to practise.
Next Practitioner Diploma course start date: April 2019
Continuing Professional Development advanced workshops and distance learning courses are available in a broad range of related subjects for hypnotherapy and psychotherapy practitioners.
