The Tutor Team has been working with BCU and cooperating with the guidance in their Covid Secure Policies. Consequently we have been working to develop a new framework through which we can deliver a stimulating and engaging online course using a variety of techniques with the tools which are available to us, including Microsoft Teams along with Moodle , email and telephone calls. The new format course will commence on 22nd January 2022, with a “Virtual” Freshers day, to enable students to meet with the Course Tutors and fellow students. We will host informal Group and Individual Teams sessions to enable students, who have not used this platform previously, to familiarise themselves with some online techniques. It is expected that students will have a working knowledge of MS Teams before starting this course.
This is now an online course with a mixture of ‘virtual classroom’ teaching, using various presentation techniques, and will include scheduled lectures with interactive student questions, ‘breakout rooms’, podcasts, seminars and tutorials. The online platform will enable the invitation of speakers both nationally and internationally to present on specialised topics. Alongside virtual classroom sessions, small group tutorials and demonstrations of practical techniques will take place and these will be linked to a students’ field of work by a tutor with specialist knowledge in that area, as all the tutors are current or former healthcare professionals with area specific understanding.

This is the only level 6 or 7 stand alone university accredited course in clinical hypnosis and communicative techniques in the UK. If you're a health professional who wants to improve your clinical skills by learning the theory and application of hypnosis and communication skills, this course is for you. You will learn how to develop communication and personal stress management skills working in a busy clinical setting. This programme is delivered by BSCAH in collaboration with Birmingham City University, Faculty of Health, Education and Life Sciences. The programme is mapped to the National Occupational Standards for clinical hypnosis.
Please note that this course is not for those wishing to set up a hypnotherapist practice.
You will gain theoretical and practical knowledge of hypnosis and related techniques, will improve and enhance your consultation skills and widen your approaches to common mental health problems. Graduates will use newly acquired skills in both NHS and private health care settings.
Here is a sample of feedback from a range of past students:
“The course organisers have been fantastic in making the process of joining and starting the journey a really smooth process. A wonderful team is supporting the organisation of this course. The help offered is invaluable.” Module 1
“Even though I have been using hypnosis in my own practice for years, I have learned so much in the first 2 days of the course that I have come out of ' the closet ' as it were. I have a renewed confidence and am practicing hypnosis in front of colleagues now openly! I highly recommend this course….” Module 1
"I have enjoyed the last couple of days & felt the academic and practical content was very well balanced. There is a lot to learn & understand but the arena makes it safe to explore issues. I was hesitant in relation to how I could use hypnosis initially but now can foresee how I can incorporate it into my future practice." Module 2
"This is what I have been waiting for, for so many years." Module 3
"I felt that as a professional within the NHS, the course was appropriate, full of depth and clinical relevance. The tutors showed great knowledge and ability to teach." Module 3
