Where We Recognise Achievement in Our College

Our Awards The National College of Hypnosis & Psychotherapy

We recognise excellence academically, clinically and professionally. Our professional society The National Society of Talking Therapies (NSTT) also recognises significant contribution to our field through the award of honorary fellowships.

The Jon Beilby Award is given in the name of one of our past principals to the student who has made the greatest contribution to their fellows in terms of support and contribution, it’s our compassion and empathy prize which recognises that it isn’t only academic talent that makes for great therapists.

The Founder’s Award  is given in the name of our founder the late Dr. Peter Blythe to the student who achieved the highest academic marks in that year’s certification phase.

The J.P. Noble Award is given in the name of a much missed former faculty member to the student who achieved the highest mark in that year’s dissertation submissions.

The Brookhouse Biddle Award is given in the name of former Principal Shaun Brookhouse and much loved former Managing Director Fiona Biddle to recognise individuals who have made a significant contribution to the field, granting honorary fellowship of NSTT.
