Ongoing professional development

Professional development is a necessity. It broadens your knowledge, competency, and expertise. Simply put, you will be a better clinical hypnotherapist.

It is a profession requirement to have ongoing professional development. Our short courses (PD courses) cover various topics. For some clinical hypnotherapists there may be a gap in knowledge in counselling skills, while others may be more interested in learning a differing approach to hypnotherapy.

HTCA professional development offers a unique range of short courses.

We keep our course fees reasonable! Each short course includes a learner’s guide, videos/audios or both, and a short assessment. The courses are offered online for convenience.

The student will receive a ‘Certificate of Attainment’ and a letter of completion. This will include the number of PD hours.

Below is our current PD course list. We will be adding courses continually.
