Overview for Our Hypnotherapy Courses in Melbourne & Sydeney

The Diploma of Clinical Hypnosis and Psychotherapy is an evidence-based course. Research suggests that Clinical Hypnotherapy can help individuals cope with emotion and mental health issues, pain management, stress and anxiety management and more. Our hypnotherapy training adopts an eclectic approach to hypnosis, meaning you will learn various approaches and techniques from different schools of thought. However there is an introduction to Neuro-Hypnotherapy.

For example, currently, an Australian university is researching the effects of using clinical hypnotherapy on irritable bowel syndrome and irritable bowel disease patients.


Our training is offered in Australia and overseas. The Diploma is facilitated as blended learning, student-centred approach. This creates an excellent learning experience. Students can interact with each other, with the lecturer, tutors and assessors. Course content is through a thoughtful integration of online and face-to-face environments.


Hypnotherapy is integrated with various modalities of psychotherapy. This combination equips the clinical hypnotherapist with more skills and techniques to deal with client issues.


Hypnotherapy Training College - Australia is recognised and approved by the three leading associations in Australia.

✔️Australian Hypnotherapists Association

The course fee is very reasonable! The low course fees is in no way a reflection of the quality and dedication offered to our students.
