"My goal is to provide the most comprehensive, thorough and enjoyable Hypnotherapy Training and NLP Training available in the UK. Training that is realistically priced, fully comprehensive and with free ongoing supervision and strategies for building a great business and professional career"
Matthew Ferguson.

This Hypnotherapy and NLP course with Matthew Ferguson is an Integrated course in all the 3 skills of Hypnotherpy, NLP and NLP Coaching. You will not find this combination anywhere else.

The idea at the heart of this course is that to be a fully competent NLP Practitioner/Master Practitioner, Hypnotherapist and NLP Coach you need to understand the core of all three skills.  That is why we have developed a course which blends hypnotherapy and nlp in one whilst still allowing each subject to stand alone in its concept and delivery.

At the centre of modern (non-script driven) hypnotherapy is the work of hypnotherapist and psychiatrist Dr. Milton H. Erickson. At the core of Neuro-linguistic-programming is his work together with the work of other effective models of therapy. NLP Coaching is primarily derived from NLP & other areas of positive psychology.

It is therefore essential to understand how, where & when to use these skills in a natural and fluid way so as to be a skilful and competent practitioner, therapist and nlp life coach.

The Facts About Professional Registration

In order to register as a practitioner with any of the main professional hypnotherapy bodies in the UK, a course of instruction the bulk of which must comprise of face to face learning, in addition to the set home study assignments, is currently required. Consequently, courses based exclusively or mainly upon online/distance learning do not qualify the graduates of such courses for practitioner status registration within the industries main bodies.

The same is true of registration with the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council and where only the main professional bodies, termed Verifying Organisations (VOs) within the CNHC, are entitled to confirm the eligibility of practitioners wishing to register with CNHC.

Whereas online/distance learning may form a legitimate part of the home study element of eligible training, it does not count towards the above contact/face to face tuition requirement. Motivation Training supports the ethics and the code of practice of Hypnotherapy and NLP as stated by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council, The General Hypnotherapy Register, The Hypnotherapy Association, The Complimentary & Natural Healthcare Council and The Association of NLP (ANLP).

“I chose this course because I felt that the content was not only thorough, including a broad range of techniques that could be applied with clients, but also because it included the latest research, and I was not disappointed.  Having just completed three years of academic study, Matthew’s approach at Motivation Training was like a breath of fresh air.  The course is taught with a mixture of lectures, use of multi-media, theory and practice, thus providing a great balance in a relaxing environment.  Whilst it was an intensive course, I was amazed at how quickly I was able to learn and put the skills into practice – this was with thanks to Matthew’s unique teaching skills which made learning enjoyable and fun.  This is an inspirational course, taught by an inspirational teacher, who has provided me with the knowledge and confidence to create a firm grounding for my own practice.  I’m looking forward to taking all these skills and knowledge out into the real world, and applying the techniques to help people improve their lives.  This is the start of a new journey for me, and I have Matthew to thank for helping me to change my life and making the future that I desire obtainable”.  Linda Waite BSc Psyc (Hons) Dip.C.Hyp/NLP
