Dmitri Hall  
Overall, this course has set me up for successI highly recommend James and the SCCP to anyone looking to advance their skills in hypnotherapy and therapy in general.  
I spent a considerable amount of time searching for the right hypnotherapy course, and I'm delighted that I chose to train with James and the SCCP. The benefits of this course extend far beyond learning a plethora of therapeutic techniques. From a personal growth perspective, it is remarkable how much you learn about yourself and how you interact with others. 
This course has not only enabled me to become a fantastic therapist but has also significantly impacted my personal and professional life. The curriculum comprises a wide variety of therapeutic interventions, drawing from multiple disciplines, making it a truly integrative course. 
One of the most memorable and enjoyable aspects of the training was the sheer wealth of experience and knowledge that James brought to the table. His teaching style made the course something I eagerly looked forward to each month. The amount of practice hours included was fantastic, providing invaluable hands-on experience. 
This training is an investment that pays dividends in both professional expertise and personal development.

After a fair amount of research, I chose the SCCP’s Advanced Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy for its comprehensive curriculum, in person learning environment and recognised qualifications. The Principal, James, brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to his teaching. He has a great sense of humour, making each weekend engaging, insightful and enjoyable.  
I highly recommend putting yourself forward to volunteer, even if you feel nervous. Putting myself in the client’s position has been emotional, enlightening and ultimately a rewarding experience
My fellow students have been supportive and encouraging, it’s been a joy to meet and work with them. Our WhatsApp group allows us to connect and practice together between sessions, which is a bonus..

I highly recommend the SCCP Course – so sign up, come along, and enjoy your studying experience, knowing you will be supported throughout your journey. 
If you are looking for a really engaging Hypnotherapy Course, which teaches you an eclectic set of skills that subsequently provides a great foundation to start your Hypnotherapist career then look no further. This is the course for you! 
James is a dedicated teacher with a wealth of knowledge. 
His training weekends are interesting, inspiring, thoughtful and comprehensive. 
His course delivery comes with a beautiful dash of laughter, lots of hands on practice, great guidance, advice and patience. 
The overall content of the course will enable you to gain a varied set of skills that you have not only learnt about in theory, but have also spent practicing hands on – which is a great way of learning and will set you up for being a competent therapist. 
As an SCCP student you can also join the friendly SCCP WhatsApp Group, which allows you to keep in contact with fellow students, provides thought provoking discussions and encourages you to arrange practice sessions so you can further practice your newly acquired skills. 
The course has several intakes during the year, which means that the students on the course all have varying experience, with some being course beginners and other students having a few more modules and experience under their belt. This means that during the course weekends you can practice with a more skilled person which helps your learning even more. I personally really liked this and it gave the course an added depth to me.  
Dr Patrick Collins 
Such a broad prospectus and delivered with the correct balance of theory and practice. The practice is where the real value is. We work with at least two different people for every day of the training, practising all of the different techniques and therapeutic interventions. We are also part of a private Whatsapp group so that we can arrange practise sessions away from the classroom and discuss the content of the class sessions. All of the practical work is essential to build confidence in delivering therapy. 
The range of resources and skills gained during this course is, as far as I can tell, unique in the market. Ranging across 8 different therapies it has to be the broadest course of it’s kind, which is so useful and vital when dealing with real people with real problems. The tools in our toolbox can make the difference between success and failure, and allow us to provide swift and lasting therapy. 
James himself delivers the content well, with sensitivity, wit and with lots of practical advice on how we can implement things in our future practice. 
I feel that I have been furnished with the framework upon which I can build a therapy practice that has the potential to help many people in the future. He’s done his bit, so the only thing standing in the way of success in therapy is me. Here’s to the future!

I am so glad that I chose this course over the many others available. It’s a bit of a crowded market. But having spoken with James I came away with a good feeling. There’s no hard sell. He explained the course well and gave me enough information to make the right choice for me. 
Samantha Quinn 
The skills I acquired from this course have been transformative, both personally and professionally. 
Attending the SCCP hypnotherapy course has been an enlightening experience that surpassed all my expectations. This course extends beyond traditional hypnotherapy, incorporating techniques like EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), Solution-Focused Therapy, and Time-line Therapy, providing a comprehensive toolkit for personal development. 
James’s teaching style is nothing short of captivating. His charisma and enthusiasm for the subject matter make every session engaging and deeply informative. His ability to connect with participants, coupled with his extensive knowledge, ensures that each lesson is not only interesting but also immensely practical. James’s ability to blend theory with practical application made the learning process both enjoyable and impactful. His dynamic approach and the interactive nature of the course allowed me to not only learn effectively but also apply the techniques in real-life scenarios.  
I highly recommend James’s course to anyone looking to deepen their understanding of hypnotherapy and related modalities. His expertise and charismatic teaching will undoubtedly enhance your learning experience, leaving you both skilled and inspired. 
Natalie Joseph 
Now as I embark on a new career as a therapist and have had a bit of time to reflect on this training course - I would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone considering a career as a therapist/ counsellor/ hypnotherapist or indeed for anyone that wants to spend absolute quality, stimulating and engaging time exploring themselves and others on a personal and deeply meaningful level. 
James leads this course with dynamism and skill and creates a learning environment that allows students to develop and grow and really practice and hone in on the practical skills of working with hypnosis and hypnotic techniques. 
The Advanced Diploma is an eclectic course which involves other therapeutic practices - such as EMDR, Emotional freedom Technique, Inner-Child therapy to name but a few. In practice the knowledge and experience gain from this course allows me to work with a client using a number of different modalities- a therapy 'tool box' which is so useful in supporting clients in the best way possible. 
During the course - there was a lot of laughter and a few tears as some of the work is as one would expect, emotionally demanding and all of this is handled by the course leader in a very sensitive, professional, warm and compassionate way. 
If you are looking for a course that is heavy on practice rather than on factoids about the history of hypnotherapy - this is very much the course for you.

Amanda Warwick 
I joined the SCCP as a pathway to a future career, and to fulfill and enhance my C.P.D. requirements. 
I am delighted to say that the experience and knowledge that I gained from Mr. Golding, and the practical use of these skills, within the study group, has enabled me to be creative in offering a comprehensive therapy service to a range of clients. I have also been able to combine this learned expertise to offer vocal/singing therapy and to enhance achievements and confidence in my students, as a dance practitioner. The environment at SCCP is in place, in order to encourage but challenge but the range of knowledge given enables each therapist to create a relatable, individual programme for individual clients. There are several options for learning and keeping your practice current.  
Thank you, James!

Vanessa McLennan 
I found the SCCP to be one of the best colleges around for hypnotherapy and psychotherapy.  
I initially did an introductory weekend with no intention of setting up my practise, however I loved it so much because  
1. The information was fascinating. 
2. James taught it in a way that was fun, interesting and very thorough that I ended up doing the whole hypnotherapy diploma.  
I set up my practise and furthered my development with the SCCP which enabled my practise to grow. 
I trained at other places, but each time I come back to the SCCP because it is so comprehensive and good quality.  
I love the way you are invited to input to the class. The classes are enjoyable and relaxed and thought provoking. Studying here has changed the course of my career and now I work full time as a psychotherapist and I love it. 
Carly Harding Jones 
The SCCP came highly recommended to me by an established in practice past graduate. Once I had spoken to James, I felt at complete ease booking on to the ADCH course. 
The course materials are extensive and comprehensive with much to reference in the large structured manuals. Lectures are well balanced with bountiful amounts of practise with peers, aiding confidence and experience with different people and personalities. James is approachable and nurturing with his support towards all his students, answering questions and concerns throughout. I furthered my learning by also doing the Psychotherapy Diploma, which now supports me in my own practice to aid understanding my clients at a deeper level. I’d recommend the SCCP to anyone looking to further professional and personal development. Carly, Birch Wellness 
Sue Moore
I recently completed my Hypnotherapy Diploma course from the SCCP. As an established Person Centred Counsellor I was looking for a course to enhance and update my current skill set by adding Hypnotherapy, and this Course was the only one I could find that also included the Brief Strategic Interventions of NLP, EMDR, EFT, Solution Focused and Positive Psychology.  
James the creator of the Course has many years of experience and a broad depth of knowledge. His lectures are enjoyable and entertaining. From the very first weekend he enabled me to have the confidence to employ my newly learnt skills with great immediate results. 
This is not just another hypnotherapy course, for me it has changed both my work and my personal life in such a positive way. I thoroughly enjoyed every weekend and I would definitely recommend SCCP Training.  
“I have recently qualified as a clinical hypnotherapist from the SCCP with James Golding as my tutor. 
I found the course to be highly informative and extremely supportive in nature. I started and completed the course online due to coronavirus restrictions, which at first I was hesitant about. However I was pleased to find the remote learning and practice with my peers offered benefits which I hadn’t considered. 
James was supportive and kind from the beginning, acknowledging that we had all approached hypnotherapy from different backgrounds and understanding that we would have our own personal energy to offer to the practice. 
I have been really impressed with the content provided on this course and can say that as a practising hypnotherapist now, it’s invaluable to be able to have the ability to accurately retrace my notes with ease and look back on such detailed learning due to the simple structure of the course. I would highly recommend the SCCP to anyone looking for a meaningful change in their careers and, indeed, personal growth. 
I found the SCCP course while searching for hypnotherapy training which would enhance not only my practical skills but that would also give me an in depth understanding of how and why hypnotherapy works. I got so much more than I’d hoped for! James, creator of the course, believes in training his students to become therapists. He is willing and eager to share his vast experience and expertise so that students have a vast array of brief strategic interventions in their tool kit. We were provided with a comprehensive manual covering every aspect of the syllabus. His eclectic approach means that students come away with 6 qualifications, including the Advanced Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy. The course is fully accredited by the NCH, HA & NSPsy and leads to a further qualification (Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma) if desired. I recommend this course without reservation. https://www.mindshiftcoaching.org/about/ 
"Gaining NCH, HA, NCFE, & NSP recognised qualifications means for me these are properly recognised courses, not just privately awarded certificates. The HPD means I can confidently use these qualifications in the Medical Centre and sports clinic" 
I have thoroughly enjoyed everything about the course, and yes, I have found it challenging at times.  
I am grateful for the understanding and support you have given me which has helped me to grow as a person and achieve so much. I am now very proud of my achievements and taking them further. I have met some wonderful people on my journey and will be keeping in touch with them. I feel making that first weekend with you has been the best thing to happen to me for a long, long, time. Just look how far I have come and what I have achieved, and I am still moving forward. 
I can't thank you enough!  
Janet. SCCP Graduate 
"The Diploma Course for me, was the best investment that I have ever made for myself. It changed me, made me see how I could take control of my life and how I gave my personal power to others without realising." 
Linda. SCCP Graduate 
"Having joined the SCCP community in 2003, and completed the certificate course with the SCCP, I was, at first, apprehensive about committing to the full diploma as hypnotherapy was, at the time, still mainly a hobby for me, Thanks to James's support, enthusiasm and encouragement, I then went on to complete the HPD, and I can honestly say my life was changed forever. I set up a small but successful practice, closely supervised and increasingly supported by James and, with his help, offered therapy to the wide ranging clients that came to see me. 
In the classroom, I was always amazed at how James could address such a big class for so long, with ABSOLUTE confidence and authority on the never ending subject of therapy, confidence that can only be achieved from his experience, while also allowing us all to discuss each topic, so as to really understand the subject. 
I was also impressed by the fact that, within supervision, James was a completely different, but equally professional person showing all the qualities that makes him such a good therapist, and, as such, any clients I refer to him, I punctuate with the words "I would trust him with my life". 
As such, now 9 years on, I am PROUD to call James a lifelong friend, being in regular contact with him, and as such, he knows me better than anyone else I've ever met, and gladly so." 
Steve SCCP graduate 
"The course covers a variety of theoretical aspects with plenty of practise, and I have really relished the learning involved. There is a lot of debate, discussion and practical help in learning hypnotherapy, and I always enjoy the time spent with the group. The course is really well put together, and I chose this one because of the integrative approach as well as the fact that it is recognised by the OU. Victoria SCCP graduate 
Studying with James at the SCCP has been fun and enjoyable, I have made new friends as well as learning about myself and others and making positive changes within myself. A fantastic course to discover yourself or to make a wonderful career change. The lecturers teach in a relaxed, friendly and easy going atmosphere which is very enjoyable for anyone! Ed SCCP graduate 
I trained with SCCP hoping to add to my private practice as a psychotherapist. The rewards are great as I am able to add further 'tools' to the therapy toolbox and see my clients make progress in a much shorter time frame when using hypnotherapy. The training was absolutely invaluable and I would strongly recommend the SCCP course to others either as an 'add-on' or as a 'standalone' therapy. " 
"If you are looking for a course that is great value for money, this is the course for you. After looking at other courses I found that the SCCP covered so much more than other courses out there and uses so many different approaches. Don't miss out on a great opportunity to learn something new!" 
Esther SCCP graduate 
"I can honestly say that my Surrey College of Clinical Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy course was life-changing! I've worked through the obstacles holding me back, and feel I am being of real service to my clients whilst building my practice." 
Tracey SCCP graduate. 
"The SCCP have created a very inspiring and insightful course that will not only develop you as person but give you practical tools to help others. The course covers a combination of hypnotherapy, NLP and Emotional Freedom Techniques that allow you to successfully access and resolve issues within your clients. James offers support with assignments, clients and case studies both during and post qualifying. If you are looking for a modern eclectic approach to hypnotherapy I would sincerely recommend studying with the SCCP." 
Rasunah SCCP graduate 
"I have thoroughly enjoyed being a student at the SCCP. It has given me many extra skills which help me cope with all manner of clients in my private practice and the support given by the principal is still ongoing, even though I gained my HPD over a year ago - I can still return to classes (without paying fees) at any time to refresh my memory and the Master classes help turn the theory into a workable product. I can definitely recommend this course as all that I have learnt has enabled me to become a competent, professional hypnotherapist with a thriving practice." 
Linda SCCP graduate 
"Finding a respected and accredited course is the most important place to begin. Having embarked and completed my course with the surrey college of clinical hypnotherapy & psychotherapy, I feel well prepared and competent with recognised qualifications " 
Wayne SCCP graduate 
"If developing motivation inside other people excites you, then this course is for you. If hypnotherapy is for you I can thoroughly recommend this course." 
David SCCP graduate 
"The course gives you a great 'get up and go' attitude to get on and make positive changes in your own life as well as others. The weekends are intense but you gain so many skills and procedures to help your clients" 
Margaret SCCP graduate 
"Completing the Certificate Course has helped me to focus on my goals and reassess my approach to life, I have decided to become a full time clinical hypnotherapist and gain satisfaction whilst earning a living. I don't feel that I am just working to earn money now but doing something worth while for others and I can see this reflected in my clients!" 
Alan SCCP graduate 
"I have completed the course and learnt so much about myself, I feel that I have rediscovered myself, now in the process of developing my practice which is going really well! Inspiring, thank you." 
Sarah SCCP graduate 
"Being a student at SCCP has improved my practise and both my professional and personal development. I now have more tools of proven therapeutic value and have updated my skill."
