What is different about our training programmes?

At ACH our training is designed to build underpinning knowledge and develop your skill base through our "hands on" practical approach. Sustainability is important in any career and we pride ourselves on graduating skilled practitioners who can market and construct their own thriving business. Self employment means you can work independently and or link with other professionals such as Doctors, Dentists, Counsellors, Psychologists, Naturopath's.

We have found in the last 15 years many of our graduates have built great networking links with other professionals in both traditional and alternative areas as well as building their own thriving practice. You too can train through ACH and establish your own professional therapy practice in Clinical Hypnotherapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Psychotherapy or Counselling.


Is Hypnotherapy used extensively and what is the scientific basis for the programmes?

Hypnosis is widely used in the medical and dental fraternities worldwide. The college uses as its foundation the extensive academic and medical peer-reviewed work undertaken globally at research institutions and universities.

Research shows the value of clinical hypnotherapy in medical, dental and therapy based areas. Professionals in many fields such as emergency service areas, psychologists, psychiatrists, dentists, osteopaths, chiropractors, naturopaths and even some hospitals link with clinical hypnotherapists as part of their professional network. Many hospitals are now discovering the benefits of referring patients to trained clinical hypnotherapists.
