Fast-track Clinical Hypnotherapy Diploma for Qualified Mental Health Professionals

We run Fast-track clinical hypnotherapy diploma courses on the Sunshine Coast, Sydney, Brisbane & Melbourne

Professional training ~ credits prior learning! 

Our Fast-track Clinical Hypnotherapy Diploma training held in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne & Sunshine Coast is led by experienced & well-respected trainers in their field Karen Bartle, MSc, & Dr Paul Peace.

Karen & Paul are experienced clinical hypnotherapists, trainers and supervisors. Both are well-respected in their field for bringing high-quality training and respect for clients to an unregulated field that is often associated with stage hypnotists and domineering media personalities. You will be trained by one or both tutors.

This course is professionally recognised and credits prior learning and clinical skills enabling qualified mental health professionals e.g., psychotherapists, counsellors, clinical social workers, occupational therapists, and psychologists to register with a professional hypnotherapy association and be eligible to gain a private health fund provider number.

We assume no prior knowledge of hypnotherapy for enrolment on the Fast-track Clinical Diploma in Hypnotherapy course.

If you are looking for new effective tools to complement your work and/or want to use hypnotherapy as another income stream, this course is for you!

"I just completed the Fast Track Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy and would highly recommend the course to anyone thinking of studying Hypnotherapy.
The theory content, in-person workshops and support from trainers is excellent.
I found myself being challenged and engaged the whole way through and I feel that I have walked away from this course with a solid foundation upon which to build my hypnotherapy practice."

~ Caitlin Casey, Counsellor

Practical hypnotherapy training with an emphasis on doing hypnotherapy.

Over the course of 9 days, you'll be equipped with everything you need to work with the public as a competent, ethical and successful clinical hypnotherapist, bringing about effective, lasting change in your clients.

Eligible applicants will already have sound knowledge will already have a sound knowledge of the presenting issues they routinely work with. We will focus on the unique aspects of hypnotherapy.
Applicants will already understand concepts common to counselling, psychotherapy and psychology, such as empathy, rapport, ethics and reflective practice, for example, and they simply want to add hypnotherapy to their skill set rather than cover all these topics again.

Groups are small, ensuring you have lots of individual attention & supervision.

We invest in you, so you can invest in your clients


Course materials include: a thoughtfully crafted and substantial course manual, and many other useful materials. These things will support you and extend your learning long after qualification.

Our investment in you also includes fast turnaround on homework and feedback on individual homework questions rather than generic feedback on a whole module. We're genuine and passionate about standards. We encourage you to make use of our supervision of your real-world practice.

We also run short hypnotherapy courses for continuing professional development and an Advanced Diploma in Hypnotherapy if you wish to study to a higher level.

We have attracted students from a very wide variety of backgrounds, including psychotherapists of many persuasions (e.g., CBT, ACT, Psychodynamic, Integrative, EMDR, etc), clinical, educational and counselling psychologists, and myriad counselling modalities.
We will help you to integrate hypnotherapy into your existing framework either on training or individually through supervision. Hypnotherapy is a wonderfully flexible tool and we teach it at an inclusive level. You can even do much of what you currently do while your client is in trance.
"I thoroughly enjoyed the training I completed with Karen and the Academy of Advanced Changework.
The small group training was ideal for practicing and refining these skills, and Karen was an excellent facilitator to keep checking in, clarifying, and honing in on my areas for improvement as the training progressed.
I was able to apply this knowledge immediately in working with clients to help them realise goals that had previously been unattainable using regular Psychological modalities. Hypnotherapy was an excellent addition to my tool kit, which I use in various ways every day."

"I think I was under the impression that "fast track" meant the course was of a lower standard or content than a diploma. No. This is an intensive, totally comprehensive, professional course.

The practical modules were both well presented and highly informative and focused on practical application. I now understand why Karen and Paul are held in such high regard in the Hypnotherapy field for their high standards and professionalism.

I would highly recommend this course for any mental health professional. I not only feel totally capable of practicing hypnotherapy with confidence but surprisingly the personal development and new personal insights at the end of the course were a huge bonus."

~ Marisa De Luca, counsellor & psychotherapist

David Hirst

Karen's level of professionalism is of the highest integrity, meeting trainees at their level of need. As a result of attending training, I have developed considerably in my field of employment, both at a knowledge and confidence level. I would readily recommend Karen's services to anyone seeking further career development and education.

Cassandra Evren

Karen Bartle is an awesome trainer. It is a very detailed training with an exceptional manual, face to face modules, assignments, reporting of the case studies, must do private and group supervisions and so on. I highly recommend Academy of Advance Changework if you want to become serious in the field of Clinical Hypnotherapy.

Keith Baddeley

As a counsellor and psychotherapist I was interested in developing my practice by adding hypnotherapy as a key skill. […] I found the training to be excellently delivered, and as an experienced practitioner myself it was really satisfying to be working with someone who I realised really knew their stuff.
