Training FAQ

There are some questions that have come up regularly with regards to the training courses. This section is designed to the more common ones.

What time does the course start?

The course starts at 9:00am. Please ensure you arrive at least 10 minutes early to allow for a prompt start.

What does the course cover?

Please see our Course Content page.

Are there any pre-requisites?

You must be a qualified hypnotherapist.

How much does the training cost?

The currently scheduled course costs £350 (£75 for be-backs i.e. already certified Hypnobirthing Fertility Therapists).

Are there any practicals in the course?

Yes, there are practical sessions, as well as the theory.

Is there an exam?

Although there is not a ‘sit down/invigilated’ exam, you will be expected to complete an assigment/assessment following the course. This is done at home, after the course has been completed.

You then submit your assessment for marking, and provided you meet the necessary standard, you will be issued with your certification.

What materials are provided/what do I need to bring?

The only things you need to bring are a notepad and pen. We will provide all the course materials, handouts, forms, etc. – basically everything you need.

How much do therapists charge/how much can I earn?

This is a bit of a ‘how long is a piece of string?’ question.

How much you can earn depends on how many clients you see, and that is determined primarily by your willingness to put in the effort to obtain them.

The key to building a strong and sutainable business is getting out there and finding clients yourself, and building a good reputation locally.

How popular is Hypnobirthing Fertility Therapy/what is the demand for Hypnobirthing Fertility Therapy?

Although Hypnobirthing Fertility Therapy is new to the UK, the Hypnobirthing name is now growing quite rapidly in the UK, thanks to exposure in both local and national media.

We believe that this will continue to increase, and the more therapists there are practicing Hypnobirthing, and the more the name becomes known, the more popular it will become.

This, combined with the growing number of couples seeking help with fertility, either as an alternative or complement to IVF and other assisted-reproduction techniques, can only increase the demand for this service.

Demand will vary from area to area but the best way to increase demand in your area, as outlined above, is to go out and create it.
