Hypnotherapy is an application of hypnosis for therapeutic benefits. It can be used in areas such as medicine, sport, and for the development of a person’s well-being.

It is no surprise to discover the diversity of problems from which people suffer. We’ve found that by far the best approach when using hypnosis, is to treat everyone as an individual. We’ll teach you exactly how to unravel a client's motivations for change in our Hypnotherapy Diploma Training.


The reason we say that people “create” their problem is because the only world that really exists, is the one we create within our own mind. However, since we are creatures of habit, and regularly hard wire our nervous system to perform specific acts, emotions and behaviours, it becomes easier to understand how people believe that the problem is outside of their control.

Hypnosis enables the mind to focus and concentrate on producing a state of deep relaxation. Throughout this process, the mind is more open to suggestions, allowing changes to be made in perception and behaviour, for the benefit of health and wellbeing. Our Trance Forming Minds Hypnotherapy Diploma Training is not just about getting good at the art of hypnosis. We want you to excel at providing your clients with the best therapeutic experience so that you will help them to create changes that last. We want you to help your clients make powerful, life changes.

Using your imagination is a mild form of self-hypnosis. This tells us that trance is a perfectly natural and normal phenomenon.

During hypnotherapy, the trance is aided by focusing on the hypnotherapist’s voice. When you focus in this way you can ignore, if you want to, many other distractions that may be around you. How a hypnotist uses their voice can deepen or lessen the trance experience for a client. This is a secret skill that is rarely revealed by hypnotists, but we’re going to teach you exactly how to do it.

Whilst in hypnosis you are neither fully awake nor fully asleep. However deeply you may go into hypnosis, you will remain in control of the situation and will continue to receive important sensory data.

Hypnotherapy has helped many people to overcome minor and more serious problems. We live stressfully and pressured lives, and it’s good to know that there are ways to relieve these problems without pumping our bodies full of drugs. Hypnosis has been accepted as a valid therapeutic technique by the British Medical Association since 1955. Conventional medicine is more aware of the connection between body and mind and to achieve a sense of well-being, harmony must be maintained in both.

The Trance forming Minds home study offered by People Building can be upgraded to a diploma certification when you attend the full training. Our diploma course has been assessed and validated at the Practitioner Level by The General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (UK). Graduates from this course are eligible for professional registration with The General Hypnotherapy Register (the GHSC’s Registering Agency) at full Practitioner status, together with the acquisition of the industry-based award- The General Qualification in Hypnotherapy Practice (GQHP) and inclusion into the CRSST (Central Register for Stop Smoking Therapy.)


In addition, Gemma, who presents Trance Forming Minds has a Senior Qualification in Hypnotherapy Practice. This is because she has worked with so many people for so long.

Not because she is very, very old.

The home study course materials consist of 3 manuals (one for each module) and a DVD training set for each module.
