Questions and Answers
We have provided a large section of questions and answers below. These are questions often asked during conversations with us by those interested in pursuing a career as a hypnotherapist. We hope we have covered most of your questions.
1. Who is the Certificate of Clinical Hypnotherapy suitable for: The Certificate is a starting off point for those who want to begin a career as a Clinical Hypnotherapist. The course delivers a comprehensive basic level of understanding and is designed to get you started practising with clients.
2. Who is generally suited to the Hypnotherapy courses: The Online video courses offered on the Hypnotherapy Learning Hub (HLH) are suited to any mature person of stable mental health. There are no prerequisites before you commence any of the Certificate or Diploma training courses on the Hypnotherapy Learning Hub. Perhaps you have felt a Soul calling to be of service to others working in the field of hypnotherapy and want to incorporate your spiritual beliefs but just haven’t found the right course yet. You may already be an alternative therapist wanting to add a new set of skills to your existing modalities.
3. Who is it (the training) not suitable for: (a) Those that have major criminal convictions or have served time in prison. Working in the hypnotherapy profession requires a police check for association membership and practitioner insurance.
(b) Anyone who suffers severe mental health problems or who are under the care of a psychiatrist. Students who enrol on any training course run by Hypnotherapy Learning Hub have to truthfully agree to the terms and conditions applicable to each course. These terms and conditions reference mental heath status and if problems occur and the student is deemed unsuitable to continue the course then the student may be removed from the course.
4. Who enrols in your courses: People from all walks of life and educational backgrounds such as Stay at home mums returning to work, Factory workers, Tradespeople, Medical doctors, Dentists, Psychologists, Counsellors, Nurses, Accountants, Alternative health practitioners, and more.
5. Whilst learning online how much of the training is practice: A substantial part of the training involves experiential practice. You need to do this in order to feel confident and able to place a person into a rapid and deep level of hypnosis after all if you can’t do this you can’t really call yourself a hypnotist. With the online video training you can stop at any stage to practice the techniques taught. As we are not there to personally supervise you, it is up to you how much you practice, but as the old saying goes practice makes perfect.
6. Do the trainers hypnotise the students. Not just relax them (relaxotherapy), but really hypnotise them. I’ve heard there is a difference: Yes, as you will see in the videos our trainers do use students for demonstration purposes to show the effectiveness of true depth of hypnosis. It’s truly a worry how many hypnotherapy trainers Can’t or Won’t demonstrate the skills and expertise required to induce true hypnosis or an effective instant or rapid induction. This really doesn’t show much hypnotic expertise so generally, their training may create only average hypnotists. That’s fine if that’s what you aspire to be.

11. Do the your online Clinical Hypnotherapy courses align with Professional association OR government accreditation: The Hypnotherapy Learning Hub and Real Hypnosis PTY LTD do not provide accreditation. Generally wherever you are in the world if Government or professional accreditation for hypnotherapy courses exists you will pay an extremely high price for the wording “accreditation”. This is because “Govt/Professional Accredited Training” is usually expensive and very theoretical. This theory is often taught by trainers with little to no practical experience in running a hypnotherapy practice.
Lorna and John have taught Professionally recognised hypnotherapy. The Hypnotherapy Learning Hub and Real Hypnosis Training PTY LTD have decided that it currently wants to remain outside of the current regulating bodies until the profession begins to align itself on an ethical basis.
