Key assets of our courses

Learning through experience

Hypnosis is about understanding people, communication, imagination and even emotions. The essential theoretical knowledge to explore hypnosis is conveyed through multiple exercises, commented practical applications and demonstrations by the trainers. Our teaching method is based on experience. Approximately 80% of the course is dedicated to practice.


Learning progression

Validation of all 6 modules certifies you as Hypnosis Practitioner from l’A.R.C.H.E. Each module is subject to validation as quality assurance. The validation of a module is therefore required to pass on to the next one. Because each person progresses and learns at their own rhythm, we offer the opportunity to retake a module free of charge if it was not validated.



We do not provide our students with scripts. The aim of our Hypnosis Practitioner training is to teach our students to understand and integrate the mechanisms and tools of modern hypnosis in order to offer a customized and client-centered approach to every session. proposer à chaque fois un accompagnement sur mesure, avec le client au centre.

Hypnotherapists trained in our School tell you their experience with the Hybrid format

" It was generous and educational! " 

The trainers were very supportive through regular individual feedbacks, it was generous and educational!

We were able to practice via Zoom in small groups in a very comfortable way, and on a weekend, such a pleasure!!!

Isabelle, Technician 2

 "It helps assimilate the material better" 

Learning via video-conference in the evening and practicing in small groups on the weekend, it’s really great like this!

I find it helps assimilate the material better and I can rest between sessions!

Damien, Technician 3

 "As interesting and effective as in class" 

The fact that the curriculum spreads across 14 days helps us understand and assimilate all the tools that we are given. 

Practicing online with other students is just as interesting and effective as in class.

We are well-equipped to offer sessions both online and in person!
