DCH - Diploma in Clinical Hypnosis
The Professional Course is open to holders of the ICH Foundation Course Certificate or those who can successfully demonstrate, at interview, the requisite level of knowledge, skill and/or experience.
The ICH Professional Course provides students with the most thorough and challenging training in hypnotherapy, leading to the Diploma qualification DCH - Diploma in Clinical Hypnosis.
The DCH qualifies the holder to set up in practice, register with relevant professional bodies (see Accreditation) and to work with their own clients as well as with NHS or similar complementary therapy teams.
The course is spread over eight weekends at monthly intervals. We normally hold one Professional Course per year.
Each Professional Course is followed by one day of examinations.
The examination day will consist of:-
» one 3-hour written paper
(three essays and a Multiple Choice Questionnaire)
» a practical examination and…
» a short, written "Definitions Paper".
Throughout the course, theory is mixed with enjoyable and instructive practical sessions, so essential to building the confidence of the future practitioner. All the lecturers are people chosen not only for their superior knowledge of the material but also for their ability to teach it. In addition to the lectures, students are expected to attend regular supervision with a dedicated ICH Supervisor.
All DCH holders are invited to join The Association of the ICH of Clinical Hypnosis (AICH).
Those students who are willing to further their studies to the Advanced Level and to the Master Practitioner Level may do so by continuing their studies through ICH Continuous Professional Development (CPD) Courses for Qualified Hypnotherapists.
