We know that properly taught the ability to guide a person into hypnosis is easy to acquire. However, we also know that it takes a long time to learn how to use this skill effectively in order to guide someone through their journey with therapy.
With that in mind, we are certainly not content to simply give you an armoury of tools and techniques and expect you to get on with it. One of the strengths of our training is that we provide you with thorough background knowledge of the implications and structure of psychotherapies in general and hypnotherapy in particular. The psychotherapy models and techniques we teach will help you to better assist your patients as they learn to understand and then change their unhealthy emotional states and self-limiting behaviours, into healthy emotional states and self-helping behaviours.
You may be wondering whether there are there any personal benefits for you? The simple answer is yes! You will learn how to take more control of your personal and professional life as you use the skills you acquire on your own personal self-development journey.
We have a passion for hypnotherapy that means we are constantly seeking to improve our knowledge and understanding of this fascinating subject. Our team of lecturers have produced some original and effective approaches to working with a variety of conditions. They have also been (and continue to be) involved in research. Research projects include:
We are an approved training organisation for the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis (BSCH) and work closely with them to ensure that hypnotherapy practitioners work ethically and to a high standard.
Our training courses follow (and go beyond) the Core Curriculum for Hypnotherapy as laid down by the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). The BSCH is a verifying organisation for the CNHC, making sure that that their standards are met and maintained. Graduates from our Practitioner Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy course who are also members of the BSCH can apply to be placed on the CNHC register of therapists.
We support the work of Anxiety UK. Anxiety UK is a charity that supports individuals and organisations requiring assistance with anxiety, stress and anxiety-based depression. Our graduates are able to apply for volunteer positions, bringing hypnotherapy to those affected by anxiety disorders.
We are committed to honouring the Armed Forces Covenant and support the Armed Forces Community. We recognise the contribution that Serving Personnel, both Regular and Reservists, Veterans and military families have given to our country.
LCCH International is approved by local Social Services departments and Health Authorities to offer continuing education and training to their employees, and you should contact your own department for funding.
In memory of a valued friend, researcher and hypnotherapist we proudly offer the ‘Anna Zohrabian Scholarship’. In recognition of her work in the field of neurology, this scholarship is open to individuals working in the NHS who are seeking to use hypnotherapy in their day-to-day work. Candidates must be nominated by their Head of Department. Do feel free to contact our head office for further details on 020 3603 8535.
We do understand the current economic situation, so you can choose to pay your main course fees in instalments. The usual method comprises a modest initial deposit at the time of booking, followed either by the balance of the fee during the first weekend of the Certificate Course, or equal proportions of the balance of the fee during the first, fourth and eighth weekends of the Practitioner Diploma Course. Every effort will be made, however, to meet the needs of students who wish to pay their fees otherwise.
The BCHEB, chaired by Julia Lewis, is the validating body for our practitioner diploma exam. In addition, the board has suggested aims and objectives which the LCCH is pleased to adopt both for the exam and the course leading to it. Course participants may be assured therefore that the LCCH Practitioner Diploma course and exam maintain the highest standards in accordance with criteria laid down by the British Clinical Hypnotherapy Examination Board.
The British Society of Clinical Hypnosis (BSCH) is a national professional body whose aim is to promote and assure high standards in the practice of hypnotherapy. Registration demands good quality training, ethical practice and adherence to their code of conduct.
Members of the BSCH are required to sign a formal Code of Conduct, thus maintaining the highest ethical standards of professional practice within the field of hypnotherapy.
CNHC is the UK voluntary regulator for complementary healthcare practitioners that was set up with government support to protect the public by providing a UK voluntary register of complementary therapists. CNHC’s register has been approved as an Accredited Register by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care. This means CNHC has met the Professional Standards Authority’s demanding standards. All CNHC registered practitioners are entitled to use CNHC’s quality mark which demonstrates a commitment to professionalism and high standards. The public and those who commission the services of complementary healthcare practitioners can choose with confidence, by looking for the CNHC quality mark.
CNHC has agreed that the BSCH may verify applications for CNHC registration. Members wishing to register should complete the CNHC application form and forward it to the secretary.
