The SCCP Advanced Hypnotherapy Diploma has an NLP Ericksonian Cognitive Hypnotherapy foundation. There are many approaches and philosophies within the field of Hypnotherapy. Some are reliant on scripts and approaches for specific problems known as direct suggestion but not for specific clients. Others offer spiritual, and metaphysical orientations whilst using a structure of hypnosis. 
The SCCP approach is to enhance the modern brief strategic approaches; NLP, Ericksonian, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, CBT, theories within Hypnotherapy. Certainly CBT is clinically proven and success based, which is why the NHS has made this a therapy of choice, 
It is our belief the best results are gained in therapy when an active involved relationship is nurtured between client and therapist, allowing the client to be skilfully guided to find the underlying causes of their issue, and assisted in restructuring their unconscious perception so that the issue naturally resolves. 
Cognitive NLP Hypnotherapy draws on techniques from NLP, Cognitive Therapy, Gestalt, EFT, EMDR, and current research from Psychology and Neuro-science. 
These approaches are eclectically woven within the approaches of excellence from the most effective therapists of the 20th century, Milton Erickson, Steven Wolinsky, Aron Beck, Albert Ellis, Fritz Perls, Rubbin Battino, Tad James, Francine Shapiro & Gary Craig. 
This synthesis forms an approach modeled toward achieving permanent results in the shortest possible time - Brief Strategic Therapy. 
Course Structure The Diploma takes 10 months to complete. You are invited to attend one weekend (2 days) per month for ten months. 
Prior to course commencement we request that you read through the course manual sent to you electronically, enabling the classroom experience to be interactive and highly experiential, led by a trainer with 30 years clinical experience in the field of therapy & a proven back ground in the research and development of therapeutic interventions. 
Total study time, including classroom participation, is estimated at 450 hours, spread over longer than the 10 months of your training if you wish, this allows you to work at a pace that suits you. 
Each weekend is a separate module, developing your understanding of the structure of the SCCP Brief Strategic Approach, whilst allowing time to practise the range of techniques & interventions taught; to become competent at developing the flow of hypnotic language & suggestions to facilitate change in your individual clients so that you will not have to rely on one approach scripts, inappropriate for most clients. 
Accredited by the Hypnotherapy Association (HA), The National Council of Hypnotherapy (NCH) and the National Society of Psychotherapists, NSP, you will hold a recognised qualification. Current Advanced Diploma students are funding their hypnotherapy training fees with their own developing hypnotherapy practice. 
Apart from these individual psychotherapeutic interactions you will also gain the skills to use these approaches with clinical issues such as depression, emotional eating, irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety, panic attacks, in fact any response that your client will bring to your practice. 
If you are serious about developing a practice and offering your clients the best possible therapeutic interventions this is the hypnotherapy course for you. 


Having completed the Advanced Diploma Course some students may wish to gain the prestigious HPD via the SCCP & through the NCH & NCFE. Please go to Advanced Hypnotherapy Diploma HPD for further details. Please note, the HPD is not a requirement to continue training for your Psychotherapy Diploma but a separate option available to you as an SCCP student.

The Surrey College of Clinical Hypnotherapy  &  Psychotherapy   Training Program  

Why choose the SCCP? 

Please look around at other courses, some training organisations will be charging more money for less training hours, some advertise weekend courses and only train on Saturday. Most colleges offer training in one discipline or subject, for example, Analytical Hypnotherapy, Behavioural Hypnotherapy, Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy, Ericksonian Hypnotherapy, NLP Hypnotherapy, Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, etc. 
These courses are fine however, one approach will just not suit every client & you will want to help every client who comes to you. 
If you are serious about building a hypnotherapy practice and offering the best therapeutic interventions to your clients, allowing you to work with any client this is the hypnotherapy course for you. 
Please take the time to read through our syllabus, if you can find a course offering this quality of training in so many diverse subjects at any where near these fees please let us know.

You may be interested in the Introduction To Hypnotherapy Weekend to expand your own interest in personal development or with a view to becoming a therapist. Indeed, qualified therapists from other disciplines regularly study with the Surrey College of Clinical Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy to add to their skills and further enhance their ability to help others achieve their aims. 
Whilst accredited prior learning (APL) may appear to be an advantage we feel that these skills account for only a small part of the learning curve and so believe that our hypnotherapy courses should be open to all with a genuine interest in the subject. However, there is much more to the course than the curriculum; due to the nature of the skills being taught and in view of the possibility that graduates may intend to practice as a therapist with the general public we feel it only responsible to ensure each therapeutic procedure is thoroughly understood and well practiced.
