Introduction to Curative Hypnotherapy and LCH
(Foundation level)

Allows you to gain maximum benefit from all that will be explained, discussed and demonstrated on the Practical Course.

Before you begin professional hypnotherapy training with the Stage 1 (Practical & Theoretical Certification Course), we ask you to devote a couple of hours each week to home study. The Introductory Course consists of a total of seven modules which cover the basic knowledge underpinning  Curative Hypnotherapy. Such as:-


Guidance & Assessment

To ensure you gain maximum advantage from the Introductory Section, a written assignment is requested at the end of each module and individual feedback is provided along with any other guidance or comment that may be of use to you as you progress through the course, and the next module is then sent on to you.

Outcome & Purpose

Outcome & Purpose

This foundation section not only guides you towards and understanding of  the role and function of the subconscious and how LCH treatment works, but is also useful to the tutors who can gauge your current understanding, experience and way of thinking and thus provide more specifically tailored information for students on the Stage 1 (Practical & Theoretical Certification) Course.

This Introductory Section can be used as a stand-alone course for those who do not wish to proceed to practitioner training but have an interest in what makes people ‘tick’ and the power of the subconscious mind to create various symptoms and conditions. There is no obligation to proceed to professional qualification.



  • The Introductory Section can be commenced at any time; start as soon as you are ready.
  • There is no specific time-span to this section of the course; it can comfortably be completed in 2-3 months, however some people have preferred to take considerably longer.
  • There are a total of 7 modules (the one available as a free download and then 6 additional training modules)
  • Each module takes approximately 6 hours to complete.  Going through feedback received on each submission will likely take an additional 1-3 hours.
  • While it may be possible to undertake the Introductory and practical sections concurrently, we recommend that the Introductory Section be completed before commencing the Stage 1 (practical) Course.
  • Once the Introductory Section is completed, it need not be done again – so if you decided or needed to attend a Stage 1 Practical Course several months (or even years) after completing this section, your submissions would still be valid and still useful to you and to your tutors.



If you have already gained a recognised* qualification in hypnotherapy, the Introductory Course might not be required, enabling you to progress directly to the Stage 1 (Practical Course).  

Please contact  us so that we can discuss your individual situation.

*=Recognised qualifications are those accepted by the National Hypnotherapy Society, International Hypnotherapy Association and/or the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council
