    You will be part of a small group (maximum 8 people) to ensure you have individual attention and develop the confidence to practice hypnosis. Enrol early to ensure your place.

    With our accelerated learning and teaching approach after just two days training you will have learned the basic skills of how to hypnotise someone

    Niamh has learned a lot from working with various types of conditions over the years and you will benefit from her experience.

    You will receive the original National Guild of Hypnotists course material as this is the official NGH course.

    Your first years membership of the NGH is included in the course fee.

    Your course materials (dvds, cds, manuals) are all included in the course fee.

    You get to study in a beautiful environment in the spacious conference room overlooking Galway Bay.

    A follow up meeting is arranged in June or July each year to teach you age regression work as graduates once you have a few months practice of suggestion work under  your belt. This is included in your course fee.

    Niamhs PhD research was in the area of hypnosis for migraines so she has an in-depth knowledge about and understanding of hypnosis from a scientific and applied perspective which is of great benefit to students of her course.
