Hi. I’m Claire. I first became interested in hypnotherapy after treatment for a driving phobia (I could drive again after one session!). Since then, I’ve loved helping my clients transform their lives and teaching others to be ethical, respectful hypnotherapists. I’m one of Psychology Today’s experts and my HypnoMenopause® course was featured as an alternative to HRT in Psychologies Magazine. Today, I work with an international client base and still get as much satisfaction from helping every individual client as I did with my very first client! I hope you find all the information you’re looking for in our prospectus and please feel free to contact me for more information.

Our students come from such a wide range of backgrounds including clinical psychologists, counsellors and people who have no prior experience of therapy – but a passion to learn about hypnotherapy and help others.

Psychotherapist, Lorraine Conway, had this to say of her experience:

I would highly recommend Claire’s hypnotherapy course.  This course proved to be an especially important step in my entire career as a psychotherapist.  The use of hypnotherapy gave me a new perspective on how to work with my clients.  I also wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help and support throughout my learning.  The course content was brilliant, and you were always there if I needed the support. The professionalism of the course combined with what I felt to be a genuine desire for you to see me succeed was worth its weight in gold.   Thank you so much again.

Lorraine Conway, MBACP (Accredited)


What would it really mean to you to retrain as a fully qualified clinical hypnotherapist? Can you imagine, for a moment, undertaking a journey where you’ll not only learn how to help others but will deepen your understanding of yourself? Becoming a hypnotherapist is about so much more than beach pic 1learning techniques over a few days. During the Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy you will learn how to become a confident, ethical practitioner and will receive completely personalised advice on how to establish your hypnotherapy business. The Academy of the Inner Mind (AIM) is an internationally recognised hypnotherapy training provider. Our Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy provides you with comprehensive, hands on training and is a fully externally accredited course with the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC). GHSC courses meet strict learning outcomes and allow you to register with the only government accredited body for complementary therapists – the CNHC and the General Hypnotherapy Register which is the UK’s largest professional hypnotherapy membership body.

Hypnotherapy is increasingly recognised by healthcare professionals and therapists including GPs, psychologists and counsellors as a therapeutic approach for the management of anxiety, chronic illness and behavioural issues and Dr. Claire Jack is currently involved in a project with the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow anaesthesiology department. One area of great demand is in Children’s hypnotherapy and the AIM offers a trademarked, internally recognised training course – KidsMatters – which AIM students can access at a reduced rate. Another huge area of growth is in IBS and our HypnoIBS course has responded to this demand. If you want to make hypnotherapy your full time career, you’ve come to the right place!

HypnotherapyWhat does the course cover?
The Diploma course is approximately 120 hours classroom study. You are also required to read in between sessions, practice with volunteers and case studies and complete examinations including an open book exam, business plan and real life case studies. The case studies are absolutely crucial in learning your skills and developing your confidence. The Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy explores a range of approaches, including solution focused, psychodynamic and CBT approaches to hypnotherapy. This provides you with an integrated approach which means you can respond to the precise requirements of your clients without limiting yourself to a single mode of working. Learning hypnotherapy ‘skills’ is only a part of the Diploma. Just as important, and covered in detail on the course, is how to set up your business and start making a living as soon as you qualify. There’s also a chance to specialise in areas which are in considerable demand, including children’s hypnotherapy and IBS with our KidsMatters and HypnoIBS courses. Additional training is also available for conditions including anxiety, weight loss, depression and CBT. For a full prospectus, please use the contact form.

HypnotherapyWhat makes this course different?
As an accredited GHSC course provider, the Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy meets all GHSC requirements. Over and above this, we place a huge emphasis on training students to be confident, ethical practitioners. Unlike many training providers, our group courses never exceed 15 students. This ensures that every single student can practice techniques and therapeutic skills such as listening and analysing and will receive the personal attention and support of Dr. Claire Jack, who has led research teams and taught at Scotland’s top universities as well as running a thriving hypnotherapy practice. It also ensures a safe, supportive student environment. Studying at the Academy of the Inner Mind means that you are choosing a course which is continually updated to reflect cutting edge advances in research and development within the field of hypnotherapy.
