Our Story

The Devon School of Hypnotherapy was founded in Paignton, 2012, as an extension of my hypnotherapy treatments. Once developed, I started teaching a one-day self-hypnosis workshop designed to introduce the art and science of hypnotherapy and teach individuals how and when to use self-hypnosis from my clinic on Hyde Road. Initially, my students were current or former clients, but others heard about the school and wanted to learn more for themselves.

Less than a year from setting up the school, I was running regular workshops as well as my then newly developed Certificate in Hypnotherapy weekend course (known now as the Introduction to Hypnotherapy weekend).

Over the following year, I began writing the Diploma in Hypnotherapy course. Writing the diploma course and getting it accredited by The General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC) was no mean feat. I wanted graduates to be ready and confident to enter professional practice once qualified and ensure that they had adequate live experiences to back their knowledge.  After several months of dedication and hard work, the diploma was completed. Now my students could train from complete novice to confident practitioners at one school.

For the past nine years, I have taught all three courses at varied intervals throughout the year(s). In that time, I have had many successes with many students qualifying in the respective courses. I derive a great personal reward from teaching my students and seeing them develop their skills, qualifying and going on to forge new careers as professional hypnotherapists. While my training is proving to be a great success, I still continue to offer clients hypnotherapy treatments in one-to-one sessions in the Devon Clinic.
