Unit 1 – Working with Neo-
Textbook: Havens, Ronald A. and Walters, Catherine. Hypnotherapy Scripts. 2nd edition, Routledge, paperback 2015. (This is the same book as the 2002 hardback second edition.)
Hypnotherapy can allow the unconscious mind to find a way of identifying the source of the pain that presents as the problem, and help the unconscious find its own strategy for resuming normal functioning. A complete plan for conducting sessions is provided in the set text, along with many scripts aimed at particular problems. The scripts, mostly metaphoric, will be useful to the student hypnotherapist and the practitioner seeking additional techniques. The scripts are also seen as possible strategies to use (adapted to the client as necessary) when the minimalistic approach to hypnotherapy outlined in this unit is not sufficient to produce results. Ultimately, understanding how the scripts are used will lead the confident practitioner to be able to create new scripts, metaphors and suggestions on demand.
Unit 2 – Beyond Conflict: Therapy With Our Many Parts
Textbook: Hunter, Roy. Hypnosis for Inner Conflict resolution: Introducing parts therapy. Crown House Publishing, 2005
This unit is a study of “Parts Therapy”, an advanced hypnotherapeutic technique that is related to the methods of Ego State Therapy and Voice Dialogue. The pioneer of parts therapy was the leading hypnotherapy instructor Charles Tebbetts. The text for this unit is “Hypnosis for Inner Conflict Resolution” by Roy Hunter, a student of Tebbetts and interpreter of his work who has updated the techniques.
The basic principle of Parts Therapy is that the personality has many parts, or subpersonalities, that roughly correspond to the roles we play in life, plus the many psychological survival strategies we have learned that are active in our subconscious minds. Sometimes inner conflict occurs between two or more parts and thus prevents us from fulfilling a goal or realizing some part of our potential. Parts therapy is a way of communicating with the relevant parts of a client and negotiating with them in order to achieve a positive outcome. During this process the client also gains insight.

Unit 4 – Advanced Applications of Modern Hypnotherapy and Hypnoanalysis
Textbook: Watts, Terence. Hypnosis: Advanced Techniques of Hypnotherapy and Hypnoanalysis. Network 3000 Publishing, 2005.
This unit is a study of key advanced techniques for hypnotherapists including regression without hypnosis, archetypal parts therapy, parts imagery and virtual world work. Example case studies are provided and there is also helpful information on working with metaphors and useful guides to personality. The key textbook is “Hypnosis: Advanced techniques of Hypnotherapy and Hypnoanalysis” by Terence Watts.
Unit 5 – Integrated Analytical Hypnotherapy
Textbook: Morison, Jacquelyne. Creative Analytical Hypnotherapy. JM Publishing 2016
This module provides a theoretical and practical guide to analytical hypnotherapy, which seeks to guide the client to revisit the roots of distress in past traumatic events, release blocked feelings and provide a resolution of current problems linked to the past. A general understanding of good therapeutic communication skills, the principles of psychodynamic psychotherapy and hypnotherapeutic technique are essential and these are covered in the unit in an accessible fashion with numerous examples.
Unit 6 – Positive Hypnosis: Altered, Mystical and Spiritual States
Textbook: Havens, Ronald A. Self Hypnosis for Cosmic Consciousness: Achieving Altered States, Mystical Experiences and Spiritual Enlightenment. Crown House Publishing 2007
Hypnosis is a consciousness-
The unit reviews suitable induction techniques, leading into how hypnosis can facilitate access to mystical states of consciousness such as Cosmic Consciousness, Immersion in Light, Awareness of Perfection, Universal Love and Cosmic Unity. “Enlightenment” is another term used to describe such states. The practice of entering such states can be greatly beneficial to a calm and healthy life and a well-
