Q. Will I be able to practice as a counsellor or hypnotherapist after completing a course with you?
A. Although there are no statutory regulations governing the title ‘Counsellor’ or ‘Hypnotherapist’ we would not recommend that you would be able to claim yourself to be a competent practitioner by only doing our online course, or indeed any other distance learning course in this field. Our courses are designed to be an introductory step in the process and if you decide you’d like to pursue it as a career; we would advise undertaking a professional level, face-to-face course which gives you the necessary supervised hours you would require to enter this sector. You can achieve this with Chrysalis Courses

A. No. You can purchase and begin your course without any prior experience in the field.
Q. How long does a typical course last?
A. Depending on your chosen course, it is possible to complete it within 4-8 weeks but this will be dependent on your home / work commitments so please bear in mind that this timing is not guaranteed. Distance learning is wholly reliant on you and your ability to devote your study time to the course but be assured that you can take as long as you need to complete – there is no deadline.
Q. Are there any examinations?
A. No. Our courses are solely coursework based and each module has a number of different exercises within it which you are asked to complete. You must complete all the exercises in full before submitting your module for marking and if you are successful in passing, you will receive your results and the next module will become available for you to begin. When you have completed all the modules, you will receive your Certificate.

A. There are many reasons why people choose to study online and each student will have his/her own reason. Read more about Distance Learning and find out if it will suit you.
