If you are serious about being a professional, fully qualified and competent Hypnotherapist you will require therapy skills other than just knowing how to hypnotize and using direct suggestion. By “fully qualified” we mean someone who meets the high standards approved by the profession, by the NZ Association of Professional Hypnotherapists Inc.

We recommend taking the Advanced Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy. Having these advanced hypnotherapy techniques in your “tool kit” will give you a greater opportunity to help a wider range of clients, and with a broader range of issues. You will have all the necessary skills that will enable you to get in-depth with issues, and guide the clients to a resolution.
