PROSPECTUS: Hypnosis New Zealand 2017 Hypnotherapy Training Courses
Overview: Hypnotherapy Training Courses, Support,
Qualifications & Proficiency Standards
Hypnosis New Zealand has three Hypnotherapy courses available for you to study. Each of
our Hypnotherapy courses has its own separate qualification, with which you can
competently, legally and ethically set up your very own Hypnotherapy Practice in NZ.

Certificate in Hypnotherapy Home Study Course

This course is suitable for beginners wanting to "test" the waters and see how they like
Hypnotherapy. And yes, it is a supported and examined course that can actually start you
into Hypnotherapy practice.

Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy - Five Day Practical Course

This course is also suitable for beginners, or those with a little prior training or experience.
If you're serious about embarking on a career in Clinical Hypnotherapy then this is the best
course to facilitate this - and it's certainly our most popular.

Diploma in Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapy Five Day Practical Course

This is for the serious, committed and experienced Hypnotherapist who wants more! It
teaches a vast range of advanced techniques to assist in the more persistent client issues.

We also offer:
Focused Training
The number of successfully practising Hypnosis New Zealand trained Hypnotherapists is a
reflection on the focused nature of our courses. We teach only Hypnotherapy! While there
are several other modalities (including NLP, EFT, etc.) that may fit with Hypnotherapy; it is
our opinion, that they should be learned separately from someone who specialises in that
modality, after first learning and perfecting your Hypnotherapy skills from a trainer who
specialises in Hypnotherapy as a complementary health modality.

Personal Support
We also boast the very best of support possible. As a Hypnosis New Zealand student, you
have the clear advantage of Grant's personal mentoring and assistance while you study -
and once you have completed any Hypnosis New Zealand Hypnotherapy course, you have
that support for life!

Grant expects that you and he will become collaborative colleagues and probably firm
friends. Grant personally fronts all Hypnosis New Zealand practical courses; so it's Grant
that you build your professional relationship with.

Hypnosis New Zealand Membership

After training in Hypnotherapy, many new Hypnotherapists like to join a professional group,
whereas others simply go into practice as an individual. At Hypnosis New Zealand, we
combine the best of both choices.

PROSPECTUS: Hypnosis New Zealand 2017 Hypnotherapy Training Courses
We offer training and we offer group membership. We offer more advantages than any
volunteer-based non-profit group could ever offer - and the big difference is that we mostly
do it for free! There are no annual membership charges for those who have trained with us
- and we also offer free internet directory advertising and a monthly newsletter for free too.
Here is a list of our Hypnosis New Zealand membership advantages:
Personal Mentoring by Grant Boddington at any time of the day and any day of the
Peer Support Facebook Group where many other Hypnosis New Zealand members,
students and supporters are just as willing to share.
HYPNOTES Newsletter is free to you every month. You are invited to submit articles
and news in return for free advertising.
Lending Library, at only the cost of return courier. We have a range of popular new
and old books on Hypnotherapy for your use.
Directory Listing is free for all members and supporters of Hypnosis New Zealand.
Be a part of one of the most viewed Hypnotherapy lists in NZ.
Hypnotherapy Brochures at cost price, couriered to your door. A great way to boost
your advertising appeal and professionalism.

Hypnosis New Zealand Hypnotherapist Gold Star Proficiency Standards

We are proud to announce that we have implemented the very first system of
Hypnotherapist practicing standards in NZ. They are the Hypnosis New Zealand
Hypnotherapist Gold Star Proficiency Standards.

There are Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 Proficiency Standards; which respectively equate to
achievements equal to the HNZ Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy, the HNZ Diploma in
Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapy and the ultimate, which is being accepted as an HNZ
Registered Clinical Hypnotherapist.

Another clear indication that our top Hypnotherapists are more than simply competent -
they are proficient!

Our Top Qualification:

Hypnosis New Zealand Registered Clinical Hypnotherapist
Our requirements are amongst NZ's most stringent Hypnotherapist Registration processes -
and have taken each Registered Hypnotherapist several years to complete and become
registered as one of our most highly qualified, experienced and accredited Hypnotherapists.

The minimum requirements include:

3 to 5 years of theoretical and practical Hypnotherapy training and experience.
Hypnosis New Zealand Diploma in Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapy (or similar).
Associate or Senior Professional Membership of Hypnosis New Zealand.
Full compliance with the Hypnosis New Zealand Code of Ethics.

Then, once these stringent, but very achievable standards are met, you can then apply to
become a Hypnosis New Zealand Registered Clinical Hypnotherapist. Our "Best of the Best"!

interesting and fun and certainly value for money. I found myself eager to learn more by reading your
book and doing the modules I am now convinced that hypnotherapy is for me and appreciate the fact
that you are prepared to mentor me over the next few months as I pursue my journey. Even though
we only had contact via phone and email I felt at ease with you and encouraged by you. I felt a sense

patience made the week thoroughly enjoyable and as a result a real sense of comradeship was
formed amongst all the students. Not only did I learn how to be a great hypnotherapist, but a more

The Examination and Qualification Process

Specialised Training
Hypnosis New Zealand is the only specialised Hypnotherapy training establishment in New
Zealand! Our practical courses are focused on Hypnotherapy and therefore do not include
snippets from other modalities to bulk up the course content, potentially adding confusion
to the examination process. Hypnotherapy is all we teach - and all we examine!

Locally Based & Assessed

Grant is your tutor and (especially in the practical courses) has seen you learning and
mastering your new Hypnotherapy skills in class, so has a first-hand experience on your
capabilities and strengths. Unlike some other courses, where your tutor may only be an
employee or franchisee of a training establishment (which may even be based overseas) all
Hypnosis New Zealand course examinations are personally assessed by Grant Boddington -
right here in New Zealand.

Relevant Content
The content of each examination is directly connected with the actual content of each
respective course. If you do require any support at any point, then Grant, or one of his
previous students from the HNZ Peer Support Network, is there to help. Since Grant himself
fronts all Hypnosis New Zealand courses, we don't require you to create a video of a
Hypnotherapy session with one of your clients, as some other courses do.

Rapid and Efficient Processing

All of these unique advantages contribute towards an extremely efficient and rapid
assessment time for your Hypnosis New Zealand examination. Usually Grant will contact
you within 48 hours of receipt of your examination papers to discuss any points with you
and offer suggestions on the fine tuning of your techniques. Plus, on passing, you will
usually receive your Certificate or Diploma in Hypnotherapy within another few days. The
entire process from receipt of your examination papers by Hypnosis New Zealand, right
through to your own receipt of the relevant qualification, is usually completed within a

Legal Obligations
On receipt of any Hypnosis New Zealand Certificate or Diploma in Hypnotherapy, you can
legally practise in New Zealand as a professional Hypnotherapist; providing of course that
you abide by all local and national laws aimed at any other natural therapy business and
within the Code of Ethics of Hypnosis New Zealand.

About Hypnosis New Zealand

Hypnosis New Zealand (like all other NZ Hypnotherapy training establishments) is a privately
owned and independent business. It is headed by Grant & Karen Boddington and
supported by an annually appointed Advisory Board.

Most of our training courses are conducted in central Auckland - as that's one of the easiest
and most affordable destinations for local, national and international students to travel to.
All courses are presented by Grant Boddington himself.

With several hundred members, we are now NZ's largest group of Hypnotherapists. In fact
we have more members than all the other groups combined. We are proud to have trained
and supported many of NZ's top Hypnotherapists and give generously of our time and

Anyone who passes any Hypnosis New Zealand course, is granted membership at either
Member, Professional Member, or Senior Professional Member level. There is no annual
membership fee for these members - as it's more about people sharing, than money. That
philosophy is also demonstrated in our course pricing structure, that we consider to be the
fairest available.

We have a huge range of additional membership benefits (most open to students as well)
that include:

Free Peer Support Network

Free Directory Listing
Hypnotherapy Brochures (at cost)
Plus, after qualifying with us, you can apply for an International qualification via the
IHF (International Hypnosis Federation).

Hypnosis New Zealand is one of only 8 Member Organisations of the NZ Hypnotherapy

Federation and is the only NZ Hypnotherapy training establishment that is a "Recognized
School" by the International Hypnosis Federation, based in the USA.

It's more about you than us. We want you to succeed and we invite you to join our
community of sharing and caring professional Hypnotherapists. After all, the more of us
there are, then the more popular Hypnotherapy becomes.

You can almost always reach either Grant or Karen on the phone for a chat about the
advantages of training with Hypnosis New Zealand. You'll find us to be friendly and
professional. Our phones are always on for your calls, messages or texts; we check and
respond to all emails within a few hours (usually minutes) and our door is always open for a
friendly support chat and of course light refreshments should you be passing our Wanganui

About Grant Boddington

When you train with Grant, you can be certain of learning from a highly respected, trusted
and ethical professional. Over more than 20 years as a professional Hypnotherapist, Grant
Boddington has trained, assisted and inspired literally thousands of others from all around
the world - many of them right here in New Zealand.

So, when YOU train as a Clinical Hypnotherapist with Grant, you have the advantage of
learning from one of NZ's most highly experienced and trusted exponents of the art of

Grant wrote the book that shares the name of his 21st
century makeover of traditional Hypnotherapy: Modern
Suggestive Hypnotherapy for Professionals. In this eye-
opening publication, he explains the advantages gained
for both therapist and client, of conducting a
Hypnotherapy session utilising a more modern
"permissive" rather than old fashioned "authoritarian"
style of therapy. The use of his "Client Personality
Types" model greatly assists the 21st century
Hypnotherapist to work with more clients, more

It's also relevant that Grant has been one of NZ's top performing Stage Hypnotists. And
while it's rare for him to perform on stage nowadays, he often states that being a Stage
Hypnotist gave him a more rounded view of the powerful capabilities of Hypnosis for
Hypnotherapy purposes.

His expertise in the understanding and use of the language pertaining to the power of
suggestion is also demonstrated in his corporate motivational presentation: Mind
Mechanics. So please take the time to visit to see how popular
Grant has become in the business world.

Whatever way you look at it, it's plain to see that he has a dedication to Hypnosis - and to
motivating and guiding people to be the best they can be. In fact one of his most popular
Hypnotherapy recordings is entitled: "Be The Person You Want To Be". So, if the person
that you want to be, is a Hypnotherapist; then Grant Boddington is your obvious choice of
trainer, colleague and friend.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which course should I start with?

We have three main courses, which can take someone from beginner, through intermediate
- and right up to advanced level. They are:
Certificate in Hypnotherapy. Home Study. Beginners
Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy. Auckland 5 days. Beginners or intermediate
Diploma in Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapy. Auckland 5 days. Experienced Hypnotherapists

The best practical option is definitely the 5 day Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy course,
which is held several times a year in Auckland. It will give you a very full and interactive
start into Hypnotherapy with plenty of practicing of learned techniques on classmates and
volunteer clients.

However, if the next 5 day Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy course is too far away and
you're keen to get started immediately, then the Home Study Certificate in Hypnotherapy
course will provide you with plenty of information and support. This basic training is
sufficient to start a Hypnotherapy practice, or to simply use for your own interest in

Then, when you find out how wonderful Hypnotherapy really is and would like to attend a 5
day course to boost your confidence and hone your skills, the entire cost of the home study
Certificate in Hypnotherapy course could be credited against the full fee of the 5 day
Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy course!

NB: Even if you have started, but not yet completed the home study course, you're welcome
to enrol in the 5 day Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy course and the generous credit still

Will I learn enough to begin to practice as a Hypnotherapist?

Absolutely! And many others are already doing it. Either of the two Modern Suggestive
Hypnotherapy courses can launch you into practice - especially the more intensive and
interactive 5 day Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy course. That's because, concentrating on
learning Suggestive Hypnotherapy first, is like learning to walk properly before you try to
run! To see many other past students who are already working as professional
Hypnotherapists, please see the Hypnosis New Zealand Directory of NZ Hypnotherapists on
the website.

What sort of people study Hypnotherapy with HNZ?

Well, the common denominator is that they are very definitely all good people, of all ages.
We've had people from their early 20s right through to their 80s - and all experience levels.
Many with no prior experience in Hypnotherapy - and many others who are already
practicing as natural therapists and are ready to bring the efficacy and credibility of
Hypnotherapy into their range of techniques. EG: Life coaches, drug & alcohol counsellors,
youth workers, psychologists and even several medical doctors! Hypnotherapy can be easily
learned and practiced by almost any caring and communicative person.

PROSPECTUS: Hypnosis New Zealand 2017 Hypnotherapy Training Courses
When should I move on to the Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapy Course?
The choice is totally yours, but we suggest you find your feet with Suggestive Hypnotherapy
first. You will certainly have been taught enough to begin practicing competently as a
Hypnotherapist. Then, when you are comfortable and competent, we suggest you attend
the Hypnosis New Zealand Diploma in Advanced Clinical Hypnotherapy training course -
where you will learn about the very specialised techniques of Age Regression and Parts
Therapy; as well as many more child and adult issues and areas where you can practice as a
professional Hypnotherapist.

Why do you believe HNZ Hypnotherapy courses are the best in New Zealand?
Grant Boddington personally fronts all of our courses and delivers the very best of focused
Hypnotherapy training and information and the ultimate in positive communications and
support! All this comes from more than 20 years experience in Hypnosis. But of course, the
most qualified people to answer this question are our many previous students. They will
vouch for the fact that we always deliver over and above what we promise! (Please read
their testimonials on the website.)

We expect that you'll become a friend and colleague for life and Grant himself is pleased to
be your permanent mentor in Hypnotherapy. You're welcome to email, call, text, or even
visit him; pretty much any time! He can always find the time for a chat about

What are the regulations for practicing Hypnotherapy in NZ?

There are none! (Well, none that are specific to Hypnotherapy anyway.) Providing you are
practicing ethically and safely and in accordance with the Hypnosis New Zealand Code of
Ethics - and you are meeting all local and national requirements for your premises and
general business practices (such as OSH, IRD, HDC, etc.) then you can legally practice as a
Hypnotherapist in NZ! Every Hypnotherapist will tell you that Hypnotherapy is perfectly
safe - and the NZ government agrees, so has left it to be self-regulating.

Can I become a Hypnosis New Zealand Registered Clinical Hypnotherapist?

Yes, you probably can! Once you have completed our Diploma of Advanced Clinical
Hypnotherapy course and examination, you will then automatically become a Senior
Professional Member of Hypnosis New Zealand (SPMHNZ). Any SPMHNZ can then apply to
become a Hypnosis New Zealand Registered Clinical Hypnotherapist (HNZRCH)

Grant's TOP TIPS for Choosing a Hypnotherapy Course.
There are many factors that may influence your decision of which Hypnotherapy course and
tutor is right for you. You'll probably already have some idea as to why you want to learn
Hypnotherapy and to what level. Maybe it's as a personal life-skill; to complement an
existing natural therapy business; or to practice solely as a professional Hypnotherapist.
Whatever your reason, there is probably a course to suit your needs.

With some training establishments you can start with a gentle home-study course to test
the waters - and you can even begin a career in Hypnotherapy with the better ones that
have an examination as part of them. Or, a classroom course may be more your style and is
certainly a popular option - especially if you're already certain about learning Hypnotherapy.
Whatever your thoughts, I trust that my following personal views and opinions may assist
you in your choice of course and tutor.

I wrote this guide mainly to highlight the open, friendly supportive way that I personally like
to work with my students. You're always welcome to email me on or
call me on 0800 TRANCE to discuss the advantages of my Hypnosis New Zealand
Hypnotherapy courses. Or you can text me on 021 447481 and I'll call you back.

Rapport Between You and Your Tutor

Firstly and most importantly, I suggest very strongly that you talk in person with your
potential tutor to make sure he/she is experienced, knowledgeable and personable.

Make certain also that this is the person who will be fronting the class! You'll be
potentially working with, and be associated with, this tutor for many years after your
course, so choose one with a genuine passion for openly sharing and passing on his/her
knowledge and support - and guiding you into becoming an integral part of the mainstream
Hypnotherapy profession in NZ.

Your tutor should be prepared to become your mentor, your colleague (and probably your
friend) for life, so it makes good sense to be of similar mindset, motivation and personality.

Information, Communications & Support

Two-way communications pre and post course are vitally important, so make absolutely
certain that you can contact the tutor at any reasonable time - by a variety of methods. If
you have a question, or require support, you need to know your tutor is readily available
and willing to assist. They should provide you with their business, free-phone and mobile
phone numbers; their constantly monitored email address and their physical and postal

Was all of the detailed information about the course easy to find and understand; or did you
have to go hunting high and low for prices, dates, course content, etc? If a trainer is
secretive about what is taught, when, where, and for what price; then he/she may be
equally as reluctant to fully and openly teach and support you later.

Also, I advise you to check the standard time taken to assess your post course examination,
contact you to discuss it and forward your qualification certificate or diploma to you. This
should only take a few days! I suggest that you test the communications capability of your
prospective tutor by calling them and emailing them before committing to their training.

Reputation of your Tutor/Course

Popular, well established training courses will have plenty of recent testimonials, comments
& reviews readily available, so please read them! Remember that a good number of recent
positive testimonials probably mean many happy students. Capitalise on the experiences
and reports of those recent past students.

Ask your potential tutor how many years he/she has been both practicing and teaching
Hypnotherapy - and more importantly, how many students they have trained - and how
many of those are now practicing as professional Hypnotherapists in New Zealand. Make
certain that your trainer is also a HNZ Registered Clinical Hypnotherapist.

Course Content
There are two common and effective styles of Hypnotherapy: Suggestive and Analytical.
Ideally, I believe that the Suggestive Hypnotherapy techniques should be learned,
experienced and mastered separately - before progressing on to the more complicated
Analytical Hypnotherapy styles. Make certain your tutor can provide training and support
for both of these styles. If you have an effective tutor who teaches you well and you apply
those lessons with your clients, then Hypnotherapy may well be the only natural therapy
modality you need!

Sure, there are many other natural health modalities that combine very well with
Hypnotherapy; but in my opinion, a Hypnotherapy course should concentrate on teaching
you to become a competent Hypnotherapist. The inclusion of other natural therapies in a
course curriculum may make some Hypnotherapy courses appear more comprehensive than
they really are and blur the lines as to what does and does not constitute Hypnotherapy.

So ask your potential tutor for a full list of course contents - and maybe even a course
timetable to check each topic's relevance. If, later on, you choose to also learn other
natural health modalities, then you should do so from a master of each modality, rather
than a dabbler in many.

Also, it's worth checking how much of the time taken for the Hypnotherapy course is in
practical interaction with tutor and classmates - compared to study in your own time. In
other words, find out whether you're paying to be taught in a classroom/practical situation,
or to mostly do your own reading and research and then write up screeds of reports and

Financial Considerations
Make certain you pay a fair price for your Hypnotherapy education. After all, it's a safe
natural therapy and should be easily within the reach of anyone who chooses to learn it.

PROSPECTUS: Hypnosis New Zealand 2017 Hypnotherapy Training Courses
The course pricing (including GST) should be clearly advertised by the trainer and be
realistically structured for a natural therapy. Some courses may require an application fee
or deposit - and may even insist on you buying certain publications in order to complete the
course. So ask about any hidden extras that you may have to pay for in order to begin,
participate in, or complete the course or its associated examinations.

I strongly urge you to check out the refund policy of the training establishment; very, very,
carefully! Personal circumstances can change - and in the event that you are unable to
attend a course for legitimate reasons, will there be a refund available? So find out under
what circumstances any money paid by you is refundable, or transferable to another course.
Also, it pays to check which city the alternative course will be held in, because you may have
to meet extra travel and accommodation costs if it's held in a different location from that
which you originally signed up for.

Legal Considerations
Every Hypnotherapist is quick to tell their clients how safe Hypnotherapy is - and the NZ
government agrees. So Hypnotherapy in NZ is relatively free and unregulated; reflecting its
fine safety and effectiveness record as a natural therapy. You must of course run your
Hypnotherapy practice in conjunction with the general laws of the land, including:
Occupational Safety & Health; Inland Revenue; The Fair Trading Act; The Commerce
Commission; The Health & Disability Commissioner; etc.

When you enrol for a course, be extremely careful about signing away any future rights to
practice as a Hypnotherapist. Some trainers may require you to do this! You might have to
complete a certain part of, or even all of, their course and pass their examination processes
before practicing professionally - or even before you hypnotise anyone at all, for any

Qualifications Offered
Each individual trainer in NZ awards either their own independent qualification, or maybe as
an agent/franchisee/member of an overseas organisation. This should be awarded
immediately on completion and passing of the course examination process, (which in our
case usually takes less than a week). Remember to ask what the standard time for assessing
your examination might be and how soon afterwards, you'll receive your qualification
certificate or diploma to display proudly on your wall.

Please also be aware that there is no NZQA qualification for Hypnotherapy in New
Zealand. And while an NZQA qualification for Hypnotherapy was indeed proposed and
worked towards a few years back, it was dropped in its final stages by the NZQA before
instigation. So no trainer can offer an NZQA Qualification in Hypnotherapy - because there
quite simply is not one available!
