How long does it take to study to be a hypnotherapist?

When considering a career change, or adding another therapeutic tool to your box, the length of time and commitment that is required is something that you will be thinking about.

 With so many on-line and distance classes now being offered in so many areas, it can be tempting to go for that option, and we are sure that a lot of these courses if they are being offered as Continuing Professional Development, certainly have value and their place.

 However, when starting out in hypnotherapy there really is no substitute for solid, classroom based training where you have the benefit of a personal tutor, a team of tutors behind them and of course your fellow students. 

 TAG training is classroom based and incorporates a lot of practical work over the course of the ten months.  You will not only learn the theory behind hypnosis, NLP, CBT, EFT and RCP, but you will also have the opportunity to practice with your fellow students, and of course to be practiced upon!

 To learn more about the course, you can download our full syllabus and reading list here.

 We offer you the support to use your new skills, in a practical setting with a real person so that you can learn to notice the subtle changes that occur when a subject goes into trance.  You will have opportunity to practice and hone your hypnotic skills so that when you begin working with clients you have plenty of experience and are confident that you know when a client is indeed in hypnosis.

 There will be classes where you can learn practically about body language and the subtle ques that you will learn to read so that you can really develop good rapport with your clients, which really is the basis of the therapeutic relationship.

 On the theory side, there is nothing like a good discussion to get you thinking, giving you inspiration to research deeper into a particular area.  Also, having fellow students to chat to and bounce ideas off of is invaluable.

 So when someone enquires about how training and asks the question how long does it take to study to be a hypnotherapist, our answer is ten months with ten classroom based weekends spread across that period of time, and plenty of research, reading and tasks to complete in between.

 We want to ensure that only the most competent and confident hypnotherapists graduate from TAG Academy and for that reason we maintain very high standards of training.  This is evidenced by the fact that we are fully accredited by the National Council for Hypnotherapy, the General Hypnotherapy Register and the National Institute for Cognitive Psychology.

 So, when you ask yourself the question, how long does it take to study to be a hypnotherapist, consider what level and quality of training and what accreditation you aspire to achieve to be able to start your own successful hypnotherapy practice.
