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 merely exhibits the ability to read.
You want to be able to do more than just read a hypnosis script, don't you?
It is my mission to train and certify hypnotherapists to know not just what to do, but why they do it. This means teaching the underlying principles and concepts, so that when a newly minted hypnotherapist has taken our hypnosis course and is ready to get their certificate, we know that THEY KNOW their stuff, and can be creative and be flexible with their expertise.
When you have completed* our home study hypnosis certification course, and pass the certification test, you will qualify to become a member of the International Hypnosis Association and get one or more of their certifications.
And you will find yourself prepared and ready for your first real client. You will be new, and some things come with experience, of course, but...
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, and a whole lot more.
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 more than just a couple of canned inductions and how to read hypnosis scripts to help with smoking cessation and weight loss clients.
There is a lot more to being an effective hypnotherapist than buying any old hypnotherapy certification course online.
This is a hypnosis certification home study course specifically designed for home study, so you get the most effective techniques from the very beginning.
This is not some goofy ebook, nor a collection of worn-out scripts that have been floating around the internet for years. It is NOT 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 and learning online.
Not everyone needs the same amount of information to
make a choice you know is the right one.
Sometimes you just know.
And when you know you're ready, you just want to...
And sometimes you want to know more...
and keep on reading until you get to the very bottom of the page!
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.

I just went through your Learn Hypnosis @ Home, Home Study Course again and I felt compelled to write and tell you how much I enjoyed it. It was concise and to the point. 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.
You can have confidence learning, because you can have confidence in your instructor and guide through this home study course. That would be me... Keith Livingston.
?I have trained hundreds, maybe even thousands, of people over the last... well, let's just say over 2 decades, and leave it at that. I facilitated learning hypnosis and NLP in many places across the US, but I also had the pleasure of teaching in 16 other countries, spanning 5 different continents.
Having written articles and been a guest on the radio and some podcasts to talk about hypnosis and NLP, I can tell you that it's not hard to do. Once the media, both local and national, have recognized you as a subject matter expert, you will also receive the occasional request. It's a good idea to follow that stuff up, and even volunteer your expertise... but that is really just good marketing.
I was, however, particularly delighted to be invited to be on The John Walsh Show back in 2003.
Here, Keith is pictured with John Walsh just after his appearance on The John Walsh Show.
I made sure the picture was REALLY big, just so you can see how young I was. ;)
He was invited on the show to demonstrate how effective hypnosis and NLP can be in the alleviation of phobic symptoms. While on the show, Keith successfully treated a young woman who had a severe, long-lasting snake phobia....
And it took less than 15 minutes for her to relieve her phobic symptoms!
Knowing something and being able to teach it are two different things. There are lots of products out there put together by people with good hypnosis skills. However, not everyone has great training skills, and sometimes the information is so poorly put together that it can be difficult to learn.
That's where experience as an instructor at 2 nationally accredited institutions of higher learning and a state licensed vocational institution have given me an advantage. My experience even prior to becoming a Certified Hypnotherapist myself included developing and writing several college-level courses from the ground up. Teaching those same courses at a nationally accredited college was great experience to acquire at a relatively young age, and has only enhanced my ability to keep doing what I love.
Who knew I would combine these skills to put together NLP and hypnosis courses that help other people learn more easily, and more effectively, than many other training programs?

I just finished Keith Livingston's Learn Hypnosis At Home Course.
It was wonderful.
After completing this course, you are eligible to take the written test for certification as a hypnotherapist.
The International Hypnosis Association has developed a straight forward test based on the material in this course. Simply take and pass the test, send in your membership application and first year's dues, and you'll receive your beautiful certificate, suitable for framing.
I really want to clarify something here.
ANY hypnosis course can give you a certificate that they print out that says you took a class. While a certificate of completion may confirm that you took a class, it doesn't tell your clients much. You might like having certifications just to have them, but clients like to know that these certifications mean something that helps them trust you and your services.
So Hypnosis101 has chosen to use the IHA's certification process, so that your clients know you have been able to prove yourself to the satisfaction of the IHA's standards.

"Thanks again for a great program of study. I am enjoying it immensely. I truly appreciate your availability for questions. It speaks volumes about your dedication to students of the program as well as yourself. It is certainly a point of distinction in my book. I have been examining various programs and I find yours is well-rounded and keenly focused.The material is most assuredly solidly framed and anticipates questions that arise as new concepts are presented. Nicely done. Thank you very much.
