Yorkshire Hypnotherapy Training


Coronavirus update:

Our midweek option - which will run Thursday mornings - and our Wakefield weekends group will start in July or September, depending on the government guidelines then in place and when our venues re-open. We will allow for social distancing. If we cannot meet up, we will start these courses online via Zoom from September at the latest. 

Please send in an application form or contact us for more information if you would like to join one of these classes. 

If you are already trained as a therapist, we have home study CPD courses (including some free ones) available at our sister website, www.cpd.expert 

Hypnotherapy training taster days

hypnotherapy training taster days


We offer introductory 'taster days' designed to give you some information about hypnosis and a taste of what our training is like. Although face to face training is suspended at present, we hope to have our Taster Days online by the end of June, via Zoom. Please contact us if you would like to be notified of dates when they become available.

 You don't have to come on a taster day before you enrol for one of our longer hypnotherapy courses but it's a brief, interesting and enjoyable way to find out more about what it's like to train as a hypnotherapist.


Come to a hypnotherapy training taster day if you:
    • are over 21 years of age
    • are considering attending one of our longer courses
    • want to experience trance and learn about how hypnosis takes place
    • want to find out what life as a working hypnotherapist is like
    • want to meet our tutor

Taster Days are the ideal opportunity to meet our tutor, and try out our training before deciding if hypnotherapy is the right career move for you. We don't include a hard sell. We think if our training is right for you, that's the decision you'll make. You don't need us pressuring you into it.

The content of these days is aimed at those seriously considering hypnotherapy training, so they are not suitable if you have more general questions, or if you are considering using hypnotherapy to resolve personal issues. We are happy to answer this type of query at other times - please contact us.



No matter which venue you eventually come to for your training, all Taster Days are held in Debbie's hypnotherapy clinic in Normanton, WF6 2DB. This is chosen to help keep down costs for those attending. The clinic is around a mile from Junction 31 of the M62: if you are on public transport both the bus drop off point and Normanton station are around five minutes' walk from the clinic.


Taster Days cover:
    • What is hypnosis?
    • How does it work as therapy?
    • Some basic hypnotic techniques
    • Accreditation and voluntary regulation explained

Numbers are limited, we usually accept only four to six people on each date, and we charge a fee of £10. However, if you sign up for one of our longer courses afterwards, we'll deduct this amount from your course fees.

The day runs from 10 am, we finish around 3.30-4 pm depending on the number in the group and how many questions there are. Tea, coffee etc is provided and there are several places nearby where you can purchase lunch.

Please phone 01977 678593 or email us if you have any questions, or use the button below to reserve a place. Please book well in advance as places go quickly, especially for events near the deadlines. Payments are non-refundable, but if you find you are unable to attend, we will transfer your booking to another date.


Testimonials on tasters:

I thought the decision to have only small numbers in the group was a good one and that element of the longer course also appeals to me. Hearing from a past graduate was interesting too. JA

It was a wonderful session with a great bunch of participants and Debbie was an exceptional presenter, she kept the session very interesting with a couple of practical sessions to give us the taste of hypnosis. PT

The day was excellent. It was the perfect mix of practical activities, group discussion and directed teaching. We had a lovely group to work with and Debbie facilitated the group and needs of the group very well. I came away fully informed and excited about the course and hypnotherapy. KS

Thanks for such an informative and fascinating day! As a teacher, I attend many training courses but none have captivated my attention like this one. Such an interesting topic taught through practical methods: a real insight into how the mind, and hypnotherapy, work. FE.

I loved yesterday. I thought it was very well thought through and your passion for delivering quality and comprehensive training came through. CHD.
