What makes the AHS different?

We’re dedicated to your success.

“ Studying with the Academy has enabled me to launch and build my own private practice. Now I have a full diary of clients and I’m doing what I’ve always dreamed of, helping people and making a difference. And I never imagined studying could be so enjoyable!” Jennifer, Melbourne

Enrol with us and you get all the practice, all the advice, all the information and all the learning you need to become a Clinical Hypnotherapist. We’re with you every step of your journey.

You can have confidence in us. Our courses are designed to do two things: first, to share with you the skills, knowledge, experience, and expertise to do great work as a Clinical Hypnotherapist; and second, just as importantly, to share with you the skills, knowledge, experience, and expertise to set up, launch and grow your own private Clinical Hypnotherapy practice, attracting just as many clients as you want to see.

We pride ourselves in the practical element of the training. Putting a client in trance is the easy part. The therapy you use with them is what we show you how to use.

So many opportunities to practice what you’re learning! Train with us and you’re not only learning the theory – you’re constantly putting it into practice, too. You’ll see live demonstrations, and then go and practice for yourself, in a safe, structured environment, gently guided, prompted, and encouraged by our expert trainers.

“Studying at the Academy of Hypnotic Science gave me the chance to encounter a diverse range of experience and knowledge within the teaching staff, and figure out what kind of therapist I wanted to be as I went forward in my career. The practical skills and theory that was taught, gave me a good foundation to open my private practice, start seeing clients, and keep working towards sharpening my skills in the areas that I found most interesting and rewarding.

I would highly recommend the Academy to anyone who was interested in practicing hypnotherapy, whether they be a new therapist, new to the field, or building on an existing skillset.”
Bianca Skilbeck, Melbourne Dip Clinical Hypnotherapy
