Demand for hypnosis training is increasing. No longer the preserve of stage hypnotists and hypnotherapists, more and more people are realising they can add hypnosis to their existing skills, apply it within their work and hobbies, or simply use it for personal development. I welcome this change and wholeheartedly believe more people should be both aware of the potential of hypnosis and how to use it.
How to find the right training course...
Anyone who has considered hypnosis training knows that there are an abundance of training courses available, that vary in approach, quality and cost. This can make it difficult to determine which course is the right one for you.
My advice when considering training is to firstly choose a course that teaches the style of hypnosis you would like to master. Trying to bridge the gap from one style to another later on is possible, but is not the best way to get started. If your aim is to be a stage hypnotist then seek training about stage hypnosis. If you want analysis free hypnotherapy skills then find a course that teaches that. Secondly choose a course where the trainer is an experienced practitioner. Far too many trainers lack the depth of knowledge that comes from doing vast amounts of real world work. Finally choose a course where there is a large element of practical training rather than history and theory. You can learn that stuff in your own time and a good teacher can point you toward appropriate resources. Practical training under guidance with feedback is the best way to improve fast.
If possible find a mentor who will stick with you as you develop as a hypnotist. The post training learning curve can be steep and having someone you can share your experiences with, who can provide constructive feedback, really helps accelerate your progress and clarify understanding.
I welcome you looking through the training courses I have to offer and if you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
Private one-to-one training
If you wish to master hypnotism but the fixed courses on offer via group training do not meet your aims then I can provide you with an alternative that is bespoke tailored to your needs and goals.
My service offers a direct path to mastering hypnosis skills and draws upon years of real world experience including thousands of therapy sessions and performances. I work with my clients to ensure any gaps in knowledge are plugged, that their self-confidence and personal style is developed, while drilling the best practical real world techniques.
Private one-to-one training is booked by the day and delivered either face to face, via Skype or some combination of the two. It is possible to break the day into smaller units to spread the training over a longer period of time. You won't just learn from me, you will train with me.
The cost of private training starts at £615.00 per day.
I take on a handful of new clients each year who I work with one-to-one for between 3 and 12 months. These are people who are willing to set themselves compelling goals, who I believe, with the assistance of formal mentoring, have the drive and determination to achieve them.
Together we set key objectives, define a framework for achieving them and then we get focused and organised to ensure you succeed.
This is ideally suited to those who are not devotional about a particular hypnotist and have no allegiance to a particular school of thought. It is for those interested in crafting a road map to success and trusting me to be your guide on that journey. Ultimately this investment will save you time and money.
Typically this begins with a half or full day consultation, where we unpack everything and arrive at a new plan for you. This is followed up in the subsequent weeks and months by a combination of face to face meetings, field work and virtual contact including regular sessions on Skype.
If you know what you want to achieve and have a serious interest in working with me get in touch and let me know what you want to achieve. If we connect then I will be with you all the way.
You will find me to be genuine, empathic, creative and honest. If we are suited to working together then I will commit to and invest in your professional growth. You can expect a real world, practical and pragmatic approach that draws upon my twenty years of experience in this business and the best information available to ensure you get where you want to go.
The cost of private mentoring starts at £2500.00 for an engagement typically spread over three months.
If your interest is learning hypnotherapy then check out the Professional Hypnotherapy Diploma course I run with my father at the Jacquin Hypnosis Academy . We are both professional full time hypnotists and between us have treated over 30,000 people in therapy and featured in national newspapers, radio and TV.
Established in 1999, this course will show you how to help others achieve elegant and rapid changes in their lives. It provides a thorough basis for understanding and utilising hypnotic techniques for the purposes of getting rid of habits, dropping limiting beliefs and fears, losing phobias and achieving goals.
This approach is characterised by being brief, solution focussed and uninvasive. It is easy to adapt and apply outside of the traditional therapy setting. Each course is limited to 15 places ensuring every student gets the personal attention they need to succeed. This can also be provided one to one.
The cost of the Professional Hypnotherapy Diploma training is £2500.00
You can get more information at the J.H.A website.
If your interest is learning hypnosis for performance purposes then get in touch. I am known for consistently delivering outstanding training that is as fun as it is informative. You can expect intensive, practical training in modern performance hypnotism. Real time feedback and correction will ensure you leave having mastered a solid system of hypnosis.
Every month I provide a live group training session online. There will always a headline topic that the session focuses on. This is followed by an open question and answer session with those attending. Each session lasts a minimum of two hours. Notes will be taken and shared with all those who take part. Replays will be available for those who attend for free.
The cost of each webinar session is £15.00 or £150.00 for the full 12 month series.
Whether you are a curious hobbyist or seasoned professional, you will find value in the content. However this series is not for complete beginners and some familiarity with my work will be of benefit to you.

If you wish you can make it a complete act.

Induction: The Hypnotic Flourish.
Although no particular induction is better than another, in terms of how the subject would fare on a subsequent test of suggestibility, it is worth considering your subject's unique attitudes, preferences, abilities and expectations as well as their condition. The inductions you decide to master and use should be suited to the setting and circumstances you plan to use them in. In this webinar we will unpack the principles from my favourites for impromptu, therapy, stage and Skype, so that you can find and develop your own.

I teach others to do the same.

The Kashmir Techniques: Hypnosis, Contemplation and Self-Enquiry.
The approach draws upon the philosophy and practice of Advaita Vedanta, also known as non-duality. Often in hypnosis we are actively trying to change the thoughts, feelings, beliefs and responses of a person to help them in their search for happiness. This process turns that search around and instead examines the nature of the one who is searching. By relentlessly attempting to answer the question ‘Who am I?’ a realization occurs that has radical effects and profound implications.
