Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to do anything like research, read hypnotherapy books or prepare for the weekend? -No. Just bring yourself a pen and an open mind; we will provide all materials, including the inductions and scripts you will be using during and after the course.
How many and what are the other students like?  -Our class size ranges from 6 to a maximum of 25 (for larger groups, previous Diploma students will be on hand throughout). We do not have a main set of students like mainstream colleges. Our students come from all walks of life, and their ages vary widely from 20 to 75! At the start, most students are somewhat nervous about meeting everyone for the first time, but you will always be made to feel welcome, listened to and supported. By the end of the weekend, you will have made new friends.


What if I can’t do it? –Rest assured, you can do it, and there is no such thing as passing or failing on our weekend course. If you ever feel unsure, overwhelmed, or defeated, please speak to either myself or one of the classroom assistants-We have all been there with these feelings.

Do I have the right voice for Hypnotherapy? -There is no right or wrong voice. Over the weekend, you will learn to understand how the tone of your voice rather than your accent or pitch can affect hypnosis and how you can change the outcome by tweaking it slightly.

What if I do not like the course? It is ok if you do not like the course-we are all individuals. If you find yourself in this position, please let us know; we might be able to adjust to improve your comfort.

How can I take my training further? -Once you have completed the weekend course, you will have the opportunity to progress to our practitioner level Diploma course. You can use your certificate as module one of the ten-month course. Further information can be found here.

If you have a question, please do contact us, and we will be happy to answer. answer.

 About Your Tutor


Hi, my name is Chris Fleet, and I run The Devon School of Hypnotherapy.
During the week, I see private clients at my clinic in Paignton, and at weekends I teach hypnotherapy. During my spare time, I am enjoying renovating a horsebox for my equine-assisted therapy company-Horses4Life.

My practising career began in 2002 as a result of a dark period in my life. Since then, I have helped a large number of people combat life afflicting conditions.

For the past seven years, I have been teaching hypnotherapy to students across South Devon; many now have their own practice. Some of those even work out of my clinic in Paignton.

On my About page, I present a condensed version of my Hypnotherapy Life. I have written it candidly to hopefully inspire you.
