About Uncommon Knowledge

The company

Uncommon Knowledge LLP was formed in June 1998 by Mark Tyrrell and Roger Elliott. Having run hypnosis workshops for several years in their local area, they decided to pursue training on a full-time basis. Within 6 months, Uncommon Knowledge was running workshops in 6 different locations around England. Since then, over 400 diploma trainees have graduated, many of whom are now working as hypnotherapists. The company’s mission is to spread sound, useful information and skills around psychology, psychotherapy and hypnosis.

A quick word from the trainers

The Uncommon Knowledge Hypnotherapy Diploma Course was created as we saw a gap in training in the UK. Although there are too many hypnotherapy schools to mention, there are few delivering quality training in effective methods. Many courses have become cumbersome, teaching out-of-date ‘directive’ methods and engaging students in studies that are more of a historical nature than therapeutic.

We have worked hard to create a training course which is both stimulating and practical and we are confident that you will find the experience rewarding, enlightening and enjoyable. For us, there is nothing better than seeing our trainees surprise themselves with their abilities to help people.

The supervisors

Trained and experienced supervisors will be on hand throughout the course to help with practice sessions and any queries you may have. All supervisors have completed the course themselves and will be currently practicing.
