LCCH International provides intending practitioners of hypnosis and hypnotherapy, as well as those with an interest in the subject, with the practical skills and theoretical background knowledge to practise hypnotherapy safely and ethically.
Taught by our highly experienced therapists and lecturers, our aim is to provide quality training in clinical hypnotherapy. We enable our students to deal confidently and effectively with a wide range of physical and psychological symptoms from the so-called straight forward, to the complexities of trauma. Practical skills training is an essential part of all LCCH International hypnotherapy training courses.
We pride ourselves on teaching you how to develop effective and practical hypnotherapy skills that are based on sound theoretical foundations. We demonstrate the techniques we teach before guiding you through their practical application. For every technique we teach, you will then practice with each other. We feel it is extremely important for you to not only know how to guide someone through the experience, but also to gain a perspective from your patient’s point of view. Your lecturer or supervisor will always oversee practise sessions as you take the opportunity to enjoy the hypnotic experience.
Our courses are delivered internationally at our centres in Malaysia, Singapore and Portugal, where they are presented in English and in translated versions. Our centres are pioneers in their respective regions and ensure that the highest quality of training is made available to the increasingly global community of hypnotherapists. Our international centres are pivotal to our collaboration with a wide variety of global medical and non-medical organisations.
Our international centres include: Malaysia, Singapore and Portugal.
Hypnosis is perhaps best described as a naturally occurring state of mind – with the emphasis on the word ‘naturally’. People go willingly into hypnosis and as such become more suggestible to the prospect of change. As a hypnotherapist you will guide your patient into this state as part of the process of empowering them to work with their problems. Hypnotherapy is what is says on the box: therapy carried out when a person is in a state of hypnosis.

Researchers in Sweden have used hypnotherapy to simulate a condition called synaesthesia. This condition is extensively documented and is where people perceive one sense with another: for example being able to hear a colour or smell a sound. The scientists hope that this small scale study will lead to a greater understanding of cognitive neuroscience, and of the condition itself.
Bitcoin investors who are potentially sitting on untapped millions are resorting to hypnotherapy in order to remember forgotten passwords that are needed to get into their ‘wallets’. Hypnotherapy helps by challenging unhelpful statements such as “I can’t remember” and reducing anxiety about forgetting whilst at the same time building confidence in remembering. It also helps break through other blockages to recall, allowing someone to reconnect with an old memory.
After completing a case study on the modern addiction of electronic cigarettes and vaping I attained my Practitioner Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy with LCCH International. I am currently successfully building my practice through word-of-mouth and have assisted patients with a variety of conditions including smoking cessation, tinnitus, insomnia, work stress, unfocused anxiety and weight management. I have also been making great use of self hypnosis managing my own arthritis pain.
I am taking my hypnotherapy skills to a new level by starting the Treatment of Trauma course as I am very drawn to this field. In the current environment there are more and more people seeking help, whether in the aftermath of for example a terrorist attack or a tragedy like the Grenfell Tower fire; or a more personal incident, which can be no less distressing. I feel we as a profession have much to offer through this method of healing and look forward to completing the Advanced Certificate in Trauma Hypnotherapy with the EMDR and Ego State Therapy course in May.
I look forward to welcoming new patients to my practice in Wimbledon or in the therapy rooms at the LCCH International offices in Bloomsbury.
