Hi. I'm Claire. My passion for hypnotherapy developed after I had a single session for a driving phobia, which truly changed my life. I have developed a highly successful practice and work with clients throughout the world. Since establishing the Academy of the Inner Mind, I've been lucky enough to train hundreds of students and watch them progress to confident practitioners. Every student remains as unique to me as my first trainees and I bring the same level of quality to my courses as I have done throughout my long academic and teaching career. I hope you'll find the information you're looking for here and please feel free to get in touch should you wish to discuss any aspects of our courses. 


1-2-1 Support

I'm Claire & I personally support every single student who attends AIM both during & after their training. In addition to your 1-2-1 Business Support session, your Diploma includes 3 months peer supervision & regular performance feedback.

NLP, Mindfulness & CBT

The Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy draws on competing hypnotherapeutic modalities and includes a Certificate in NLP, Certificate in CBT-Hypnosis and a Certificate in Mindfulness-Hypnotherapy, all of which are externally validated by the ACCPH.

Small Zoom Live Classes

This course is as hands-on as ever and the live zoom format allows for greater tutor observation and feedback. Classes are kept small enough so that everyone has a voice and receives personalised attention during their student practicals.

GHR Registration

This course is GHSC Accredited and on completion you can register with the GHR, the UK's largest professional body for hypnotherapists.

Evidence based course

My background is research and teaching at some of the UK's top universities, including the University of St. Andrews. I bring over twenty-five years of academic experience to the Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy.

Claire is an amazing woman and an inspiring role model. She is a fun and phenomenal teacher. Claire's conduct was impeccable and allowed me to feel safe and at ease. I would highly recommend the training. The return on investment is invaluable. The course price is nothing in comparison to the benefits. Thanks again.

The course content was amazing and covered so much. There was a good balance of practical and theory. Although it was online learning, I did not miss out with building a good relationship with my peers. I found Claire to be really supportive during and after the training. I loved the course and will definitely do CPD training with the Academy of the Inner Mind.
