Man on Mountain contemplating Career Opportunities in Hypnotherapy

Graduate Career Opportunities in Hypnotherapy > Explore the Options to work as a hypnotherapist, get a job as a hypnotherapist and hypnotherapy job vacancies that explores what our graduates are doing.

The aim of this article is to provide a comprehensive guide to what a few of our graduates are doing with their diploma in hypnotherapy and mind coaching skills and how they are building a lifestyle friendly therapy business.

I’m opening this article with one option that isn’t generally available to graduates because franchise opportunities don’t often come around. Or if they do, they aren’t focused on delivering a great client service or aren’t of a high enough ethical standard for me to share. Now franchise may not be the best word to describe this offer, maybe we should go with Affiliate Clinics instead.

Affiliate Clinic with Wayne Hennessy’s Advance Hypnosis Brand

The Advance Hypnosis Clinics Nationwide brand was developed by Wayne Hennessy, Clinical Hypnotherapist and Client Development Services.

Wayne Hennessy, is a well known and highly-respected hypnotherapy provider and creator of the Advance Hypnosis brand. Wayne is actively offering career opportunities for qualified hypnotherapists.

In particular, he is keen to meet with graduates from our diploma course. The opportunity is to manage your own clinic under the Advance Hypnosis brand in your own location.

Wayne and his team offer an ‘all inclusive package’ and will provide you with the support and assistance you need to get your therapy practice up and running and to help you to start working with clients as soon as possible.

One of our current students – who is half way though our double Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Mind Coaching has jumped at the opportunity and has just signed up at the time of writing.

Nicola is taking over the North Dublin Advance Hypnosis Clinic and she hasn’t yet graduated. That said, Nicola will get all the support she needs.

Plus like many of our current students Nicola has already studied therapy and now is learning hypnotherapy because it gets great results fast. In fact Nicola is a trained psychologist with a special interest in Play Therapy and early childhood development.

What’s In the Advance Hypnosis Franchise Package?

The package on offer includes but isn’t limited to

  • Full training in Wayne’s Weight Loss System and his other signature services including his unique Stopping Smoking approach. Wayne knows how to greatly increases client motivation and this in turn, reduces the need for follow-up and top-ups when his guidelines are applied.

Meet Sharon O’Farrell, Our Graduate and Now Owner of the Advance Louth Clinic

Sharon O’Farrell is an experienced therapist who has a wealth of training and experience in psychotherapy and hypnotherapy. Sharon has recently joined Advance Hypnosis and taken over the Louth/Drogheda clinic.

I asked Sharon so why did you sign-up for the franchise and here’s what she had to say

Alternative Approaches to Building Your Therapy Business

Now let’s be clear. The offer of joining the fastest growing hypnotherapy clinic chain isn’t for everyone. Some therapists will prefer a more independent approach to building their therapy practice. What’s important to remember is that every person you know will at some stage reach a point in their life where they recognise that they need help. Not all of them will reach out but over 60% will.

There are lots of therapy choices available and plenty of therapists to see and places to go to get great therapy and support.

Diversity and choice is what is matters. People find the therapist that is right for them. So remember there are so many different ways to build a successful therapy practice – no matter where you are or how you want to define yourself.

Let’s take a closer look at what some of our other graduates are dong.

What Some of Our Other Graduates Are Doing

Some therapists choose to allow their own creativity to flourish. They will want to develop their own system and their own approaches and offer a more tailored approach to therapy.

Lee Cozens | Champions Mind Set Academy

Lee Cozens from Champions Mind Set Academy is a great example of an independent brand that is working in a specialised area. Lee like all the therapy busiensses featured on this page is a graduate from our Double Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Mind Coaching course. Lee specialises in Sports Mind Coaching and Performance and is the go-to-guy for ambitious sports professionals all over Ireland.

Lee Cozens, Sports Mind Coach and Owner of the Champion Mindset Academy Brand

Imelda McNally | Portlaoise Holistic Centre

Some therapists such as Imelda McNally in the Portlaoise Holistic Centre have also developed an enterprise centre for local therapists under the Portlaoise Holistic Centre brand.

Imelda as well as studying hypnotherapy to diploma level with us here at Hypnotherapy Business Academy is also a Acupuncturist, Kinesiologist, Reflexologist, Life & Soul coach, Energy Medicine Therapist and Guided Meditation designer and facilitator. So Imelda feels comfortable and confident working with a wide range of client challenges and can quickly figure out what therapy is best for each client at each step along the way.

Imelda knows everyone is different and each person is attracted to the therapist that feels right for them, so Imelda also provides a professional space for a variety of therapists offering a wide range of holistic services. They all work independently within her clinic and under her brand.

Mari Gregan | Weight Off Your Mind

Mari is also an independent therapist with a busy practice down in Gorey and in the Dublin Wellness Centre, on South William Street in Dublin.

Mari enjoys working in multiple locations and choosing her own hours. She chooses to work independently because it gives her greater freedom and flexibility to fit clients around her busy home life routine.

mari gregan natural eater weight loss course

Mari recently launched her own online weight loss course called Natural Eater. This is a six week programme that helps her clients to return to their natural way of eating and break free from the cycle of yo-yo dieting and fad diets. There are great benefits of having an online therapy course for both Mari and her clients. It gives Mari the flexibility to take time off when she needs it – knowing she can still take care of her clients even if she is away.

Her clients get to experience top quality therapy from the convenience of their phone and can drop into a hypnotic state with Mari any time they need a top up or a motivational boost.

Lisa Smith Everett | Waterford/Kilkenny Holistic News/Events & Workshops

Lisa Smith Everett is a holistic therapist, hypnotherapist and spiritual healer and owner of Dove Cottage brand and moderator on the Waterford/Kilkenny Holistic News/Events & Workshops Facebook group.

As well as providing a range of therapies to clients, Lisa also support her local community of therapists in the Waterford and Kilkenny area.

Kevin Hennessy CBT, Mental Health & Wellness Clinic

Kevin Hennessy (another graduate) runs the Kilkenny Mental Health and Wellness Clinic. Kevin goes to show once again the power of one. What one person can do to change the lives of many. I’m not sure if Kevin has a website and he certainly doesn’t need one because he is so active and engaging on Facebook with nearly 8,000 followers.

Liam Cannon | New Dawn Counselling

Liam is located up at the other end of the country and run a very busy counselling practice in Letterkenny. Liam has integrated hypnotherapy into his services so that his clients have the ‘option’ of hypnotherapy alongside his regular counselling services.

Liam Cannon is one of our two graduate supervisors. Both Liam and Denis O’Connor have a B.Sc (Hons) in Counselling & Psychotherapy, Post Grad Diploma in Supervision for Counsellors and Psychotherapists and an MA in cross Professional Supervision.

Supervision is available for all our graduates with our two highly experienced and fully qualified supervisors.

Read more about our supervision services on our UK website and scroll to the end if you are a graduate wishing to engage Denis or Liam for a block of three sessions of supervision.

Mia Sera Therapeutic Coaching

Meet Mia. Mia is also studying hypnotherapy and mind coaching with us here at Hypnotherapy Business Academy. Mia has a lot of therapy skills in yoga, havenings technique and also (of course) hypnotherapy and mind coaching. Mia has built a considerable audience for her insightful and personal videos that draws a lot of affluent and successful women towards her services. You can watch Mia in action on her Facebook page here.

Jim Sheehy | Really Human ‘Vulnerable and Strong

Watch out for Jim’s Free Online Course for Teenage Boys

Jim Sheehy is a well known counsellor in Donegal who is was a school teacher who became a psychotherapist. Jim is now currently enrolled on our double Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Mind Coaching. What makes Jim’s approach so unique is that he has taken an on-going medical condition and, rather than let it get the better of him, he works with it and uses it rather than allowing it to dictate terms.

Let me explain. Jim has created a website and a brand called Really Human – Vulnerable and Strong. He is using this platform as a way to engage a wide audience but in particular teenage boys and give them the life skills they need to become ‘vulnerable and strong men’.

Although the website is brand new, Jim isn’t. He is pouring a lifetime of knowledge, understanding and experiences working with kids into his new online programme. It’s not released yet, but if you, like me, have a teenage boy in your house, this will be one course to watch out for. Oh and did I mention the course will be free?

Dublin Hypnosis and Therapy Brand

Fiachra Morrison – Developing a Strong Family Brand in Dublin

Meet Fiachra Morrison the man behind the Dublin Hypnosis and Therapy brand. What makes Fiachra’s approach so unique is that he is creating a family business – in the true sense of the word.

Fiachra, his wife Catherine and two of their sons are all learning hypnotherapy with Hypnotherapy Business Academy and will be providing a wide range of therapy services shortly. With one of their sons in his early twenties, it’s reassuring to know that young adults can connect with a therapist that is closer to their own age and yet have access to a wealth of counseling and psychotherapy experience Fiachra brings to the business.

Beth Kuria | Introspective Hypnosis

Beth is another new entrant into the market with her brand Introspective Hypnosis. But Beth takes everything in her stride and has hit the ground running.

Beth has a gift for providing Past Life Regression experiences in a group setting and what’s great about that is that she also provides therapeutic benefit from the regression with each individual in the group. Beth has a deep knowledge and understanding of our ancient Celtic landscape and natural energy fields, megaliths and ancient practices that put past life experiences into context.

So What’s Next For You?

I hope this article has given you a true sense of how many options there are and what you can achieve by learning hypnotherapy.

You know it doesn’t matter if you are just starting out and you don’t have any experience whatsoever or if you are an experienced professional therapist looking to build a lifestyle friendly therapy practice that works for you! There are lots of options available to you.

One thing I will mention in closing is that it is extremely rare to find a franchise opportunity in the counselling, psychotherapy or hypnotherapy space. Innovations like the one created by Wayne at the Advance Brand aren’t even available in the UK or toe USA for that matter. Once all the clinic places have been taken, I think it will be unlikely to become available for a long time to come.

If you’d like to know more about how to apply for a franchise with Advance Hypnosis Clinics call Lisa on 1890 987 888.
