The National Council for Hypnotherapy offers hypnotherapy training through NCH-Accredited Training Schools, which are listed below. Only schools that offer the Hypnotherapy in Practice Diploma HPD can get NCH accreditation. The HPD (NCH) is considered by many to be the gold standard in hypnotherapy training and we strongly recommend that you gain this award via your training.
Selecting the right school for you is very important, so consider your choice carefully. Your school will both form the foundation for your competence and represent a major investment in yourself. The NCH only assesses and manages the schools’ proficiency in enabling students to gain the HPD (NCH), not the whole course. It’s important that when you are interviewed by the school that you ask questions to ascertain whether its approach to hypnotherapy and training suits your requirements.
To be accredited by the NCH, hypnotherapy training schools must fulfil these key criteria:
- Minimum of 120 hours classroom teaching;
- Occupational competence as trainers and experienced practitioners;
- Learning programme covers all the HPD learning outcomes;
- Schools provide the appropriate level of teaching, support, tutoring and assessment to enable all students to gain the HPD if so they choose.

Your development doesn’t stop at qualification. At the NCH, we have an active programme of Continual Professional Development (CPD) so you can keep your skills up to date with great discounts for NCH members.
