Hypnotherapy is a client and results-focused form of treatment that does not involve the emotional pain, time and expense of some other forms of Psychotherapies. By dealing directly with the unconscious mind, Hypnotherapy by-passes many of the obstacles and barriers the conscious mind creates. It is the most effective, non-invasive form of therapy in the world today. 

Our Diploma of Clinical Hypnotherapy & NLP is designed around the most up to date model of Hypnosis, incorporating a Naturalistic approach that is person centred and assists the client in developing internal skills that build confidence, self-identity, self-worth.

The training is designed to build skill and understanding to ensure you are equipped as a professional Clinical Hypnotherapist who can design a treatment plan for each individual client and their needs.

Will Hypnotherapy ever be regulated?

NO. The reality is Hypnotherapy was deregulated by the State Governments throughout Australia over 20 years ago.

What if I am told by a school it will be govovernment regulated?

Where is the evidence from the Skills Council or Government department that supports that? I would ask for a document
of proof.

Do Associations recognise all Hypnotherapy schools?

Associations have guidelines that schools have to meet to gain recognition for their students at different levels of
Some schools only meet an Associate membership level which is not a professional level for Practitioners.

What should I look for in training with a Hypnotherapy School?

  • Teachers and school has recognition of quality and delivery of content in the industry
  • Be diligent in your research and judgement of who you go with
  • Be sure you have the complete cost for the full certification and there are no hidden costs
  • Always look for training at Diploma level, which should be comprehensive training in all areas of Clinical Hypnotherapy
  • Supervision and mentoring check what the school provides
  • Will you have access to other students and graduates?
  • Current and up to date training that is practically based and will skill you to competently meet global association standards
  • Training is delivered to meet Adult learning principles

What some of our students say

  • "I have done both my Diploma of Clinical Hypnotherapy, NLP and my Advanced Diploma of Clinical Hypnotherapy , NLP and Psychotherapy through Rhondda Stewart.. As a registered Counsellor myself it is obvious that Rhondda has a vast amount of clinical and professional expertise. I also have her for my professional supervision. I would recommend anyone looking for well-grounded and highly regarded in the industry training to go to Rhondda. I don't believe anyone else could come close. Even when your training has finished Rhondda is always there to lend support or advise."

    Jeanne Fogarty
    "I am a graduate of Rhondda Stewart, for both my Diploma of Clinical Hypnotherapy and Advanced Diploma of Clincal Hypnotherapy, Psychotherapy and NLP." She is not only an amazing and caring teacher, she is genuinely supportive and helpful! There were times when I wanted to give up, however she was always there when I needed that extra motivation to stay focus on achieving my goals! Without her guidance and faith in my work, that goal could not be achieved! Thank you Rhondda for being such a thoughtful and caring teacher throughout my years of studying.

    Mel Ngo Melbourne

I have now completed my studies and am enjoying building a successful Clinical Hypnotherapy practice and would highly encourage anyone who is interested in Clinical Hypnotherapy to become a Clover Institute student. Rhondda is an experienced teacher, and a wonderful person. She cares about each student who steps into her classroom and supports them to learn and grow in the ways that are right for them. Her knowledge is delivered with professionalism and in an encouraging and warm manner”
