Hypnotherapy can be used in conjunction with and as a part of so many other holistic therapies from current and past life regression to future life progression, inner child sessions, parts therapy and cord therapy. 

Due to popular demand, Hypnotherapy training is now run on weekends (where possible) to cater to those who work during the week.  The Foundation Level course is 4 full days so the training has now been split over 2 weekends.

It really is the foundation, the basis for enhancing existing skills and building new layers of knowledge around pre-existing qualifications and modalities.
