Congratulations! Getting your hypnotherapy certification is a big step on the way to an incredibly rewarding career. It is important that you research, and know what you are getting and who you are getting it from!
Not all hypnotherapy certifications will give you all of the tools you need to be effective at your job. I've known too many hypnotherapists that get their certification and still don't know what to do when their first client walks through the door.
When a friend of mine told me about going to a certified hypnotherapist, only to find that the hypnotherapist did nothing but read from a script, I was furious. Reading a script does not require skill or expertise - it just exhibits the ability to read. To be a helpful, effective hypnotherapist, your hypnotherapy certification course should give you the underlying principles and an understanding of what is needed and what is happening to your subject, and how to help them achieve a deep level of trance.
An educated and skilled hypnotherapist will guide their clients, and gain their clients trust and engagement. Not tell them to sit down, shut their eyes, and listen to a script written by someone else, for someone else. Each individual that walks into your office is just that - an individual.
With a good level of understanding about what hypnosis is, what it is not, and how to utilize effective hypnotic techniques, you will be able to work with a wide range of individuals. For instance, just one of MANY things you can learn in our hypnosis course, is understanding how to gather the information that will help you give each subject the best hypnotic experience they can have.
With a hypnotherapy certification from Hypnosis101, you will find yourself prepared and ready for your first real client.
Experience matters, of course, but finally, there's a hypnosis course that will give you a firm grounding in the basic elements of hypnosis AND advanced techniques.
This course will take you far beyond the skill level of many of the most experienced professional hypnotherapists because you will be learning not just hypnosis techniques, but why they work, what to look for to ensure success, how to improvise and think on your feet.
With a strong foundation in hypnotic theory and practice, you can have confidence from your very first session. Any really good hypnotherapy certification program, like ours, will teach you not just a few inductions and then send you out the door with a couple of scripts to help with smoking cessation and weight loss clients.
You also need to learn how to talk to each individual client so you can help them get the most out of their experience with you.
There is so much more to being an effective hypnotherapist than buying any old hypnotherapy certification course online.
Specifically designed for home study, so you get the most effective techniques from the very beginning.
This is not some goofy ebook. This is not a collection of worn-out scripts that have been floating around the internet for years, nor a video shot at a seminar that was NEVER designed for home study.
This is a real, honest-to-goodness, easy-to-follow, step-by-step hypnotherapy certification program, specially designed for home study.
I just wanted to say thank you so much again and WOW! I got your course materials on Thursday and have read the Course Manual, watched the videos twice and I am 1/2 through the Turbo Charging Hypnotic Suggestions Workbook.I found my first subject this week-end. I stumbled a bit through the Elman induction, but it was amazing. After the eye catalepsy test she cracked a BIG grin and I thought she was going to start giggling. I just forged on and in the fractionalization she almost could not open her eyes the second time, the third time there was no way she was going to get them open.I continued on with the induction, and then brought her back up. It turns out that the grin was a sudden childhood memory that came rushing back to her during the induction. We spent the next 2 hours talking about her childhood experiences, some of which she did not remember until right then. I had made no suggestions, queries, etc at all, simply taking her into trance and then back.Thank You so much for the knowledge you have imparted so far to me and I look forward to finishing the course.

Very easy to follow and understand. Your references regarding methods for developing suggestions and application of suggestions is practical and easy to apply.It was obvious to me that you spent a great deal of time writing and developing this program. It is also apparent that you put a great deal of yourself into it. Your passion and concern for your students is overwhelming.If your primary goal was for the program to be informative, easy to grasp and easy to use, you have succeeded with flying colors.I salute you as a teacher, a mentor and a friend.Respectfully,
Finally, You Can Have Confidence Learning Hypnosis in the Privacy of Your Own Home
Keith is identified as an expert by important national media, appearing on television, radio and in print in front of more than 2 million people. Recent appearances/featured articles include The John Walsh Show, Freelance Writer's Report (an article on overcoming procrastination with hypnosis), "Living it up with the Bauers" morning radio show (on KPOP AM 1360, San Diego) and Reflections magazine.
Here, Keith is pictured with John Walsh just after his appearance on the John Walsh show. On the show, Keith successfully treated a young woman who had a severe, long-lasting snake phobia. It took less than 15 minutes!
Keith has spent the last several years training hundreds of people to become hypnotherapists and NLP Master Practitioners; not only from the US, but from 16 other countries on 5 continents.
Knowing something and being able to teach it are two different things. There are lots of products out there by people with good hypnosis skills but the information is so poorly put together that it's difficult to learn.
That's where Keith's experience as a teacher comes in. He's worked for 2 nationally accredited institutions of higher learning and a state licensed vocational institution. He's developed and written several college-level courses from the ground up and taught those same courses at a nationally accredited college. Keith has professional experience putting together courses for real institutions of higher learning.
Keith guest lectures for the University of Washington's Psychology Program

Nicely done. Thank you very much.
