We, the Hypnotherapy Training College, will do our very best to ensure that all our students have a successful and enjoyable experience. This learning agreement reinforces our commitment to continuous improvement in our work.  We recognise, however, that sometimes problems arise and we aim to resolve disputes, misunderstandings and complaints promptly, fairly, efficiently and effectively.  Verbal grievances/complaints will be logged in the same way as formal complaints received.  The College reviews these procedures annually, along with our course content, delivery and materials and we recognise that complaints can be used to improve our performance.

All tutors are expected to treat legitimate complaints seriously, with due confidentiality where appropriate, recognising that other tutors and/or students may need to be consulted to resolve the matter.  We aim to resolve all issues amicably in as speedy and as full a resolution as is practicable, with the following procedure:

  • Should a student wish to make a complaint or raise a grievance he/she should first discuss the matter with a tutor and attempts should be made to resolve the matter.
  • If the matter remains unresolved the student should put the grievance or complaint in writing to the Principal.
  • The Principal will investigate the matter and take steps to resolve the issues.  A written reply will be made within ten working days of receipt of the complaint or grievance.  If it is not possible to complete the investigation within ten working days the student will be informed in writing and a new deadline given.


Once training on a course or module of a course has begun, we will only consider refund requests in exceptional personal circumstances. All requests must be made in writing to students@lesserian.co.uk or Hypnotherapy Training College, POBox 10500, Birmingham B14 4WB.

If, however, you need to withdraw from a course before it begins, we will process refund requests as follows:

Introductory Course:-

  • If within 7 days of receiving the initial lesson/module of the Introductory Course, you change your mind, you may return all course material to the College via 1st Class Recorded Delivery.  If this is received in the condition in which it was originally sent to you, within the 7 days period, a full refund will be made.
  • After this period, all fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Stage 1 (Practical) Course, Conferences and other events:-

  • Students who wish to cancel their enrolment more than 4 weeks before the start date will receive a full refund, less a £15.00 cancellation fee.
  • Students who wish to cancel their enrolment less than 4 weeks before the start date should make their request in writing detailing full reasons for the refund request.  Refund in whole or in part will be considered or transfer to alternative course date provided.
  • No refund will normally be made if a student cancels their enrolment within 10 days of the start date.
  • The Hypnotherapy Training College reserves the right to cancel courses under certain circumstances when a full refund of course fees will be made, or transfer to another course date offered.
  • The HTC will refund in full if the Student is not accepted onto the course.

Stage 2 (Advanced Diploma) Course:-

  • As payment is usually made by the student module-by-module, and each instalment is payable at the time of the first submission to each module, no refunds will be made.
  • For any module paid for in advance, the student may advise the College in writing of their wish to withdraw from the training.  In this case, all modules paid for but not yet begun will receive a full refund, less a £10.00 cancellation fee.
