Course Curriculums 

Courses are structured into 6 – 50-hour increments (101 – 601 course trainings). Each course includes both classroom instruction and experiential learning. All courses include supervised practice. You will have opportunities to work with others in the class, and they with you. You will be coached in speech patterns, physical movements, mannerisms, suggestibility types and testing, and much more. You will have ongoing opportunity to participate and learn, as you experience working on your personal goals with self-hypnosis and hypnotherapy throughout the classes, just as you would expect your clients to do.

One of the greatest benefits of taking these courses is the tremendous opportunity it gives you “to put your own house in order first”, so to speak, and learn as suggested, “physician heal thy self.” You will be effective as a Hypnotherapist because you will have experienced the therapy processes for yourself. You will have first-hand knowledge of what the procedures and benefits are in relation to each hypnotherapy process because you will have the opportunity to clear up your individual issues first as you go through the different courses.

An emphasis on “Continuous Personal Improvement, Growth, and Learning through Your Own Hypnotherapy Sessions” separates us from other schools of Hypnotherapy. We will teach you the Fundamental Techniques, Advanced Methods, and the various therapies that are labeled as hypnotherapy, but we give you the student, an opportunity to learn what goes on inside the minds of clients, having personally experienced trance and therapy techniques at the various levels many times yourselves. You will have confidence to go out and immediately begin your practice at the level of your understanding, skills, and abilities, because by the time you have finished all the courses, you will know, that you know, what you know, and are doing as a Certified Hypnotherapist or Clinical Hypnotherapist.

You will also understand what potential clients to refer, because you are not ready for a particular situation yet. In other words you will be a Professional in Hypnotherapy. We look forward to participating in your personal growth and witnessing your Hypnotherapy practice develop over the coming years. We are committed to “Your Successes”.
