Although the term ‘Hypnosis’ is relatively recent (1700s), hypnosis has been used for thousands of years, as an effective tool for making changes. The term ‘Clinical Hypnotherapy’ tends to reflect the structured therapeutic setting in which it is used.
In the current climate of enthusiasm for drug-free, holistic therapies, which complement conventional medicine, hypnotherapy is being used more than ever, both privately, and within the NHS.
Advanced Hypnotherapy techniques are being used successfully, to treat a wide range of psychological, emotional and physical problems. This goes far beyond the usual view of hypnosis for smoking, weight loss, or phobia.
Hypnotherapy in general, and Advanced Hypnotherapy in particular, are being called on, more and more, to deal with chronic problems such as Anxiety, Depression and Stress.
Often you’ll find the word ‘Advanced’ or ‘Master’ preceding the title of Hypnotherapist. The important thing is to check out just what that means.
In our case, all members of the Corporation of Advanced Hypnotherapy have met rigorous entry requirements, in that we all have demonstrated, not only a solid understanding of the theory, but practical, hands-on training and experience in the most advanced hypnotherapy techniques.

- Intensive, hands-on training
- First-hand experience as a client
