Australian and Pacific College of Clinical Hypnotherapy

Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy Training

The Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy Training* teaches the assessment and treatment of clients using Clinical Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy, as well as the rapid and effective techniques of inducing the hypnotic state. It provides a wide base of underpinning knowledge so that our students are equipped with techniques to deal with the wide range of problems that present today.

The Australian and Pacific College of Clinical Hypnotherapy teaches students the proper techniques and skills to use, including how to put those skills into practice at variable depths of hypnosis. We have designed this course carefully to teach students how to deal with the realities of clients, from the time they walk in the door, to the time they leave.
