Course details

The British Hypnosis Research & Training Institute offers two notable courses: the Practitioner Diploma in Compassionate Ericksonian Hypnotherapy and the Live Ericksonian Hypnosis Master Class in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

The Practitioner Diploma is an online program designed to be completed over a year, with weekly three-hour Zoom courses held on the first three Sundays of each month, except during August and December holidays. It incorporates a skill-based training approach through live streaming presentations, therapy demonstrations, and student exercises. The course aims to teach advanced hypnotic language and Ericksonian techniques applicable across various therapeutic contexts. Students gain access to resources for continuous self-improvement and can apply for professional accreditation after completing the course.

The Live Ericksonian Hypnosis Master Class is a practical and immersive experience held in Chiang Mai, Thailand. The specifics regarding the duration and curriculum of this live master class are not detailed on the website, but it is noted that the course venue is a short distance from the accommodation provided and that it includes opportunities for students to explore local culture and attractions.

Both courses emphasize Ericksonian hypnotherapy, focusing on indirect hypnotic language, personal development, and compassionate therapeutic approaches.


Fees range from £125.00 per session for online hypnotherapy with Stephen Brooks to £1,975 for the Practitioner Diploma in Compassionate Ericksonian Hypnotherapy, with an option for a £100.00 discount if paying in full.
