Once welcomed onto your pathway, you will have access to hands-on practical and academic training and resources designed to guide and support you from first contact until qualification and beyond.
At The National College of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy we believe in helping people to help people. We believe that mental health is a human right and not a privilege and we’re driven by the hope that the therapists we train will be part of making that change.
We can help you
Since 1977 we’ve trained therapists to the highest standards available and we accredit our graduates with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). We support and guide you on the rewarding journey to becoming a therapist because we understand the process, academically, practically and personally, having made that journey ourselves.
Our content is created by a Higher Education Academy recognised team and meets UKCP standards, our course tutors are all experienced practising therapists who place supported practical learning at the heart of your training.

Our training is designed to educate, motivate, and empower you to help people make effective changes using ethical and professional methods.

Adapting to COVID19
At NCHP we are dedicated to delivering the highest standards of education no matter what the situation. We encourage resilience, flexibility and adaptability in our students and this is something that we model in our teaching methods. Throughout the pandemic we have continued to, very successfully, offer our full range of pathways online.
