"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.

"I had the good fortune of studying under the guidance of Karen Bartle at the Academy of Advanced Changework, where I completed my Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy and NLP in 2022. From the very first day, Karen's expertise, dedication, and passion for her craft was inspiring.

Throughout the course, I appreciated the consistency of Karen being my trainer. She always had a clear grasp of my progress, understood my challenges, and celebrated my achievements. Her patience when relaying complex concepts and techniques is a testament to her teaching and professional skills.
Anyone lucky enough to learn from Karen, either in a physical or digital classroom, will undoubtedly benefit greatly from her expertise. She is a mentor who truly cares about the success and growth of her students, and I recommend her for anyone who values learning from a trainer who is thorough and holds you to the highest standards, setting you on a path to excellence. Whether you are beginning your journey in hypnotherapy or advancing your skills, Karen Bartle is the mentor to guide you towards achieving your goals


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."

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.
