Gwendoline Ford: A fully qualified and highly experienced Clinical Hypnotherapist, Life Coach, Educator, Hypnotherapy Trainer, and Inspirationalist. She has helped to educate more than 16,000 course students since 1994, and is proud to have been an important part in her students career growth within the holistic industries.

“I will help to illuminate the amazing processes of your mind and show you how you can use this knowledge to maximise potential in your life”

“Gwen has the knack of helping others to gain knowledge in an engaging way, showing you how to develop skills and potentials without making it seem hard, and leaving you feeling confident and motivated about the experience and your future. A lovely person I highly recommend. “

Bruni Brewin, President Emeritus – Australian Hypnotherapists’ Association

“It’s been great to learn the skills and to actually do them hands on. To get the feedback of the people you’re doing it with, and experience it yourself too. I’m finding it really beneficial.”

A. Snailham – Former Student, now Hypnotherapist and Trainer

“I came here to do the hypnotherapy training because I had spoken with Gwen, and just got an instantly good rapport with her. What I really liked about the instructor’s style was how it would flow, and how they would pick up on what people were saying to them, and then put that into the hypnotherapy treatment. They really taught us to be in the moment and to really listen to what we were trying to get from the individual and use that information in the therapy by giving it back to them. If you’re thinking of doing hypnotherapy, come and do this course. It gives you a world of knowledge!”

M. Watson – Former Student

Be a Hypnotherapist and Make a Difference

As a Clinical Hypnotherapist you will have a huge impact in helping your clients get focussed, inspired and excited about living their greatest life. By incorporating the power of the mind you will help others change their thinking so that their thoughts begin to serve and support them – and not enslave or degrade them. What we think really does matter!


Hypnotherapy Works

Your conscious mind is the voice in your head that you hear all day long. You cannot just program your conscious mind because your subconscious beliefs are more powerful than your everyday thoughts. Your subconscious mind is like a giant computer hard drive that can be programmed with your mental software of new thoughts and belief systems for improved thinking. For example, if you currently have a mental program installed in your subconscious mind that tells you that “you will never accomplish anything” your subconscious mind will make sure that you DON’T. Hypnotherapy really does work – and the results of effective clinical hypnotherapy will allow you to release yourself from the bondage of emotional uncertainty, fear and being controlled by outdated thoughts, habits and beliefs.

Save Time / Money and Get RPL

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process that allows students to gain credit for skills, knowledge and experience gained through working and learning. Such skills, knowledge and experience can be gained throughout life, and does not necessary have to be formal learning or government accredited training.

When applying for RPL we advise you to contact our college directly on 07 3217 3560 to begin the RPL process. This process includes collecting evidence to support your RPL application, mapping your skills, knowledge and experience to specific modules, and then restructuring your study so that you are given credits for specific modules. Keeping with industry standards, an RPL fee does apply for each credited module.

The Benefits of RPL include:

  • Not having to restudy material you already know and/or practice
  • Reduced course costs and study loads
  • Ability to gain qualifications sooner
  • Recognition and appreciation of your professional and personal skill base
