(Part of a review on Voices-Yahoo.com)
I began my Hypnotherapy career by
attending this school (The Robert Shields College), and I have had the privilege to attend many others. I
have to honestly say, the training I received at Robert Shields College was
among the best I have received.
Robert Shields is a very respected Hypnotherapist and Hypnosis educator, and
his training is an excellent starting point on a career in Hypnotherapy. I
highly recommend it.
Dr. Robert Shields here writing to you from the U.K.
I've been a Hypnotherapist
since 1980 and training Hypnotherapists since 1986 when I formed The
Robert Shields College. Now, my years of experience are
available to you as a Distance Learning Clinical Hypnotherapy Diploma Course
for studying at your convenience, offline as well as online.
Since qualifying in Clinical
Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy back in 1980, I have worked in what I know
to be one of the most satisfying and rewarding professions in the
world. In fact, saying I 'worked' is not quite accurate as I have
never felt that what I have been doing is 'work'. The saying:
'Find a job you enjoy and you
will NEVER work again'
Is so very, very true!
I am not a billionaire
philanthropist, like Bill Gates, and need money to live like everyone else.
I am not, therefore, going to offer you masses of free stuff and false
promises just to get you to part with the bulk
of your hard-earned money to take my distance learning Clinical
Hypnotherapy Diploma Course. That's not my style! What I am going to
offer is a straight forward, genuine and sincere offer that has NO hidden
agenda, and, at the lowest fee you can imagine for similar training.
Simply put - you join the course, you take the qualifying exam, you pass the
final exam and you are a Clinical Hypnotherapist accredited by The Robert Shields
College and automatically a member of The Association of Ethical and
Professional Hypnotherapists able to practice with our full backing and support.
I believe that honesty, integrity and
being ethical brings great rewards and to that end I am making you the
craziest, best and most affordable offer you can imagine. An offer you
must not refuse if
you are the slightest bit interested in qualifying and practicing as a
Clinical Hypnotherapist through distance learning.
Not Just A Training
Even if you don't see the
wonderful opportunity for you to change your future for something really
worthwhile, my course will also help you with self-improvement and
self-realisation as it also
brings valuable personal qualities into the light that you have had hidden for so many
years. As you will learn so many things about your own behaviour
and actions, you might even find yourself saving, or improving, relationships that you
thought were on the decline. One thing for certain is that your
quality of life will improve after studying my course.
wanted to share my excitement and gratitude with you! Your course is
really inspiring me and I have noticed a difference in my outlook and it
is transforming who I am.
When I am at work as an herbalist helping
people I feel really happy and enlightened . I am listening more deeply
and seeking first to understand them before making suggestions. No
matter how busy it gets in the retail herb shop, I feel at ease and

36 Quality Lessons
The Clinical Hypnotherapy
Diploma Course I offer you consists of 36 Quality lessons that take you from
complete novice to a knowledgeable expert in the field of Clinical Hypnotherapy -
more than enough to get you started in your own practice, or business if you
prefer to call it that.
On completion, or after 38
will be given the opportunity to take an online qualifying exam and receive the
College Diploma and free life-time membership of our in-house Association
(The Association of Ethical and Professional Hypnotherapists). And, of
course, qualifying also means you can use initials DipCH or DCH (Diploma in
Clinical Hypnotherapy) and M.A.E.P.H (Member of The Association of Ethical
and Professional Hypnotherapists) after your name, if that
is important to you.

So..... to the important part of
this page - the price!
I know that times are tough and
it is almost impossible to pay the thousands of Dollars or UK Pounds being
charged by other schools and colleges for Hypnotherapy courses, so I am making it as easy as possible for
you to get started.
I'm offering your the full
distance learning Clinical Hypnotherapy Diploma Course for an initial payment of $4.95 (about
the same cost of a Starbuck's cup of coffee in London) and then the
balance payable through 18 fortnightly payments of $9.90 (that's about £8.00
in U.K. pounds).
The deal is this:
Pay for the first lesson now and
then every 2 weeks as each payment is made, you get another 2 lessons.
payment of $4.95 gets you Lesson 1 (the foundation lesson and quite large),
2 weeks later, Lessons 2 and 3,
and so on until you have all lessons (You can cancel the
payments at any time if you feel the course is not right for you and get
a refund of your last payment or if you
want to complete the course earlier, pay the balance and get the full course.)
and then after a short period of time you will be
eligible to sit the exam, which by the way, is marked automatically online
and your result sent to you immediately, so the College has no control over
whether you pass or fail. This also eliminates the possibility
of the results being changed so you have to pay for another attempt - a very

Please read the extract below from an email I received.
The student had paid for the first three lessons and then cancelled his
monthly subscriptions. Some time later, he rejoined my course.
When I asked him why, his reply was:
I had looked at the other courses out there
was by far the best. I purchased one from the states, what a load of
rubbish it was, I joined colleges but none even came a close second to
your course. So here's to a long relationship in training. "
As Far as I am concerned,
that says it all!!!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What are the advantages of Distance Learning?
You can study in your own time - take
as long as you wish. If you pay weekly you can can get the full course
at any time by paying the balance. On receipt of the full
course you must study for a total of three months before taking the
online Qualifying Examination. (For example, if you pay for the
full course after receiving course material for six weeks, you must
study for a further seven weeks) In effect, you can qualify within three
months or take up to a year. After one year from the initial
payment, it is at the College's discretion if and when you take the
As there is no live training, how
do we practice?
I advise all students to use friends
and relatives to practice on . This is often much better
than live training in a classroom as from my own experiences, in live
training , those being practiced on are often
'too kind' and not honest. However, with friends and
family you almost always get honest individual feedback and, of course,
you are also helping your friends and family members with their
individual problems (the most common being stopping smoking or losing
weight).. I also invite all students to send me recordings of their
inductions etc. for an honest critique from myself. This is easily
done online or email.
Why no videos showing techniques
Videos teach you other people's
methods and styles. I remember after graduating and suddenly
realising when inducing hypnosis with my clients that I was standing
with arms folded and supporting my chin. I was
shocked when I realised I was mimicking course tutor.
Although I had the greatest respect for him, I had promised myself that
I would be much better than him and mimicking his body language would
only hold me back.
Everybody is an individual and must
develop their own individual style. That's what makes a
great Clinical Hypnotherapist and separates him or her from the many
Hypnotherapists who just carry on in the same way they left their
When I ran live courses, I would
surprise my students by telling them that, "I did not want them to become
as good as me." I would then tell them that, "I wanted them to be
much better than me, much, much better and only that would make me feel
exceptionally proud of them and
happy that my training was as of the highest standard." I
think that alone encouraged most of my students to become leading
What is Accreditation and how do I
I sometimes get asked who gives
accreditation to Hypnotherapists? Is it the
Government or individual organisations? . Is accreditation
recognised by a country's government and is it a necessity to practice.
Let me say outright that the word
'Accreditation' is a powerful word used by most con merchants trying to
sell their courses at over inflated costs. Almost
every organisation on the Internet, claims to be an Accreditation Body
and some even claim that they have sole right to give Accreditation to
graduates from Hypnotherapy courses, usually their own.
Don't fall for it! They are after your money and have
self-interest at heart.
In the U.K.
there is no such thing as Accreditation.
Everyone in the U.K. practices under Common Law and that means, in
effect, anyone can call themselves a Hypnotherapist. There is no
controlling body sanctioned by the Government. To date, the
Government have only asked the world of Hypnotherapy, to self-govern
themselves. The result of which is that organisation have sprung
up all over the country claiming to have Government approval. THAT
I was at the very first meeting of
Hypnotherapy organisations, held in the U.K. held at a London College
circa 1990, when many Hypnotherapy training schools were represented.
It was called to try to put together an organisation with rules and
regulations that the Government would accept as 'self-regulating'.
It was a pantomime of self-interest and the organisers were intensely
and their self-interest exposed. They were trying to
get backing to set themselves up as a regulatory body and, of course,
have power over all other training establishments AND make a lot
I swore I would never
go to another such meeting and leave it up to the Government to set
something up. To date they have not. If you don't
believe me, write to your local Member of Parliament and ask him for
clarification, it will only take you a few minutes and a postage stamp.
So the bottom line is that if you
want to practice in the U.K., there is nothing to stop you and no need
to waste your money joining the many 'dubious' organisations.
Your diploma (to show you have diligently studied) and Association membership on graduation
(So a client has someone to fall back on if your Hypnotherapy is in
question) is all you
other than the U.K. There are various regulations, but
generally there is none. It is almost always left to local
authorities to make bylaws governing the practice of Clinical
My advice is that if you are in
doubt, phone a local Hypnotherapist and ask about Government
recognition. and always contact your local Government Representative or
Congressman etc. and ask for clarification.
The The Robert Shields College has
been around for 30 years and we give you accreditation.
In the past 15 years when the course has been available online, not one single
feedback has been received saying accreditation was a problem or could
not be resolved.
To the best of my knowledge,
in the U.S.A. there are no
restrictions in the following states: Alabama, Delaware, Georgia, Iowa,
Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nebraska,
North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Vermont,
Virginia, and Wisconsin. (I am thankful to Steve Jones, a very
trusted Hypnotherapy Training provider, for this information).
Who will recognise the Diploma awarded?
The first question I need to ask you
for me to be able to
answer this question is, who do you want to recognise the diploma, an
organisation or clients? The second question is what is the
benefits you are looking for by having the diploma recognised?
Personally I believe that It is your
skills and knowledge that are important not pieces of paper.
However I understand that you may want to join an organisation to give
your qualifications credibility and to give your clients confidence in
There are literally hundreds of
organisations worldwide offering membership and support to Clinical
Hypnotherapists. Some of them ask for ridiculous, fees to join
them and add their membership to your qualifications. Some
are well established and genuine and others, far too many I'm afraid,
are just out to get your money and give little in return.
The College was, not so long ago, a registered Hypnotherapy School with The American Board of
Hypnotherapy and myself a registered trainer with them. Their Governing
Body changed and overnight my memberships were rescinded because my
course did not include hands-on training. I believe they
have again changed their minds and I could apply again, but 'once
bitten, twice shy' and I shall not be doing so.
So if you want recognition by an
external organisation, there are many that will accept you for membership
after graduating. All you need do is look for one and be VERY
careful you are joining the right one
Frankly, the free membership of The
Association of Ethical and Professional Hypnotherapists that all of my
graduates are given, is, in my opinion, more than enough..
If you want recognition by your
clients, and that is perfectly understandable, display your diploma in
your waiting room, or in your consultation room, being sure a client can
see it and read it without embarrassment. Be sure to display
your Membership Certificates also and most importantly, you Public
Liability Insurance Certificate. With those on display, your
clients will feel reassured that you are a bona fide qualified Clinical
Incidentally, you will have no
problems getting insurance after completing my Distance Learning
clinical Hypnotherapy Diploma Course.
I have never had a graduate report back to me that they could not find
an Insurance company that would accept them.
Is there support given during the
course and after graduation?
You should be surprised to learn that
regardless of the price you pay, you get all the support you require
from me personally, both during the course and after you have completed
it. All it takes to get support is an email (my web
sites all have contact details - I don't hide behind the Internet
complexities) and I will give you the benefit of my experience and give
you advice and guidance. I know it is extra work, but I
actually enjoy helping. But let me say that my course
is so comprehensive, it is rare that anyone needs clarification or help,
with the course itself, but I do get requests for help from graduates,
sometimes as much as years later. I answer ALL emails received.
