Become trained in Hypnotism - It could change your life in many positive ways!

This innovative program is designed to give students a working understanding of hypnotism.  The course is practical and down-to-earth, concentrating heavily on the how-to-do-it aspects.  Participants are not simply taught all about hypnosis.  By means of supervised practice sessions, you will be trained to actually produce the hypnotic state and use it skillfully and effectively.  Well thought out, tested-and-true, this course will help you to master your hypnotism skills and increase your results.

With this approved professional training course, you will be eligible for recognition and certification by the National Guild of Hypnotists.  The National Guild of Hypnotists was founded in 1951, and with over 10,000 members in 40 countries, it is the oldest & largest hypnotism organization in the world.  Its certification is the most widely recognized credential for the professional practice of the hypnotic arts.

With the general public becoming more mind/body aware, the need for hypnotism increases every year. Become Certified as a Professional Hypnotist!

The NGH Hypnosis Certification Course consists of 100 Hours of Training.

Classes meet one or two times per week, taking place over a 3-4 month period of time for a total of 100 hours (approx 14 weeks). Classes are held during the daytime, on weekdays only.

I do not teach this program as a "crash course" taught all in back-to-back long days (as many other instructors do). There is too much information being delivered, and not only was I not taught that way - at least for me, that would create brain overload.

To be competent and feel confident with using the hypnosis techniques taught in this course, you will need time to receive the instruction of each module, read the corresponding content in your course manual, digest it and figure out what questions you need to ask - *and* of course, to practice it!

Upon completion of all class hours plus hands-on practice and independent study, students are then eligible for examination, leading to graduation as a Certified Hypnotist.   


SPRING CLASSES start in April.
FALL CLASSES start in September.
