Are you ready to move forward as a social worker or counselor?
Are you seeking new skills to help you improve client outcomes?
Are you looking for a way out of managed care and the “system"?
Clinical hypnosis is an effective and proven outcome-based therapy, useful for creating lasting change and overcoming client resistance. Our course will teach you how to hypnotize anyone and retrain the mind to break self-defeating subconscious patterns.
The research is in: Hypnosis is safe and effective. As a counselor or social worker, you already possess many of the basic skills required. Hypnosis is a first-line intervention, with research backing its usefulness for treating a wide variety of issues including obesity and tobacco addiction.
Hypnosis is used in medical settings to enhance outcomes in cancer treatment, pain control, and autoimmune disorders. It is a powerful resource for improving surgical outcomes for orthopedic, cardiac, and other medical patients. It is among the most effective interventions for IBS and other limiting disorders. That's why our courses are approved for nursing CEUs as well as social work and counseling CEUs. See video below for some of the research statistics.
Successful Private Practice with NO insurance
Some professional hypnotists have built all-cash private practices focusing on helping students overcome test taking anxiety and improve academic performance. Others have built thriving practices, with self-paying clients, coaching athletes in the mental aspects of the game. A professional hypnotist seeing just ten clients a week and charging $259 for smoking cessation can earn six figures a year – without ever filling out one insurance form or ever dealing with managed care. *
Hypnotherapists see a different type of client. They offer services in corporate stress management. They present training programs on maximizing human potential. They help people solve problems rather than treating mental illness. Hypnotherapists can earn part-time or full-time incomes seeing motivated and self-paying clients. Our program will teach you how to do this.
Are you ready for the next phase of your professional development?
Our program was created specifically for the at-home learner. The exercises in the DVDs, CDs, and textbooks have been designed to help learn to structure and implement meaningful and effective hypnosis sessions, so that you will be a success when you finish the course.

- DVD 7:
