Training and support in hypnotherapy and psychotherapy since 1999


The Professional Practitioner Training Course

Things are changing around here... 

As from 2017, we will be teaching online advanced classes only but the Professional Practitioner course shown here will be available at selected schools in the UK and overseas. 


A Genuine Institute

Although it is not generally well-known, the term 'Institute' can only be legally used if permission has been gained from the UK Government. Because we were able to show that we are eminent in the field of training and that we are involved in leading research, we were able to obtain the approval of the UK Secretary of State to term ourselves an 'Institute'.


The Professional Practitioner Hypnotherapy Training Course is a fully professional training and complies with, or surpasses, the National Core Curriculum for Hypnotherapy training schools, on which the National Occupation Standards for Hypnotherapy is based. It was devised and written by the principal of the Essex Institute, Terence Watts, and is based on his many thousands of hours of successful work with hypnosis, hypnotherapy and psychotherapy.


Upon completion of this training you will be eligible for registration with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council as well as with any or all of our accrediting bodies.


What Makes This Course Special?

One of the things that makes The Essex Institute course so special that the entire training programme was created by an established and recognised leader of the profession, Terence Watts. Terence has been sure to include everything you will need to be able to commence in practice as soon as you finish training - although there is always advanced material for you to study if you wish.


In fact there are very few hypnotherapy courses indeed that are stuffed with as much information as you'll find here to help you find success as a professional hypnotherapist. I runs the gamut  from Business and Legal advice, through working with the most 'difficult' customers imaginable, up to what further specialist training you could do to propel you to the 'top of the heap' if that's where you want to be.


When you learn how to work with the material from a recognised leader in the field of Hypnotherapy, you have the best possible start to making a huge success out of a new career, whether you are planning to work full time or part-time.

This is why students from all over the world, not just in the UK, have studied the Essex Institute Professional Practitioner course.


You will be able to start earning an income from providing hypnotherapy after you have completed the initial certification process at the end of your first six months study. Upon successfully completing the mid-course assessment you will become a Certifcated Hypnotherapist (Cert. H), and this certification will allow you to get professional liability insurance so that you can work legally and ethically without any worries.

Course Outline

The course consists of 10 classes that will provide you with all the skills you need to work as a professional hypnotherapist, helping people to stop smoking, lose weight, cope with stress, anxiety and phobias... and a whole lot more.


The classes include a great deal of practice which is supervised by professional therapists so that by the time you qualify, getting people safely in and out of hypnosis is completely natural to you. There are assignments associated with each class as well, that will help you to absorb the theory and understanding of the use of hypnosis and hypnotherapy at deep enough level that you will feel as if you have 'owned' this knowledge for many years.


Your training will be complete enough to get you to a high level of expertise, yet it is far from 'as dry as dust' - the training note are written in 'everyday language', plain English, with no jargon to translate or try to fathom out.
