As a professionally trained and certified hypnotist you gain the tools, skills, and guidance necessary to work confidently and successfully with clients in your hypnosis practice.
Learning how to hypnotize another person is easy. The art and skill of the hypnotist is in knowing what to do with the client once they are in a state of hypnosis.
You can use your skill as a hypnotist to transform the lives of others by helping them heal physical, emotional, and spiritual wounds.
A skilled hypnotist facilitates the clients’ transformation by guiding them toward overcoming limiting beliefs, negative habits, mental confusion, and a lack of confidence.
Hypnosis is a state of mind. It is a normal, natural state of mind that we all go in and out of several times each day. Learning to access this state of mind on demand allows for direct communication with the subconscious mind. This is the part of your mind that houses all your habits, rituals, routines, values, beliefs, memories and more. Learning to access the subconscious mind puts you in the position of power. It is in this state where you create or eliminate subconscious programs based on their perceived value to you.
Becoming an ICBCH Certified Professional Hypnotist gives you the skills and confidence you need to guide your clients into this natural state of mind for a specific purpose.
Hypnosis is very effective for the treatment and elimination of fears, phobias, negative beliefs and more. It can be used to let go of old unwanted habits and to create new relevant beneficial habits.
This online course is designed and best suited for anyone who wants to make positive changes for themselves, their family, friends, or for their clients.
Hypnosis has become more popular and accepted as a legitimate option for improving the quality of one’s life.
It has also become more popular as a career choice. It is common now for life coaches, NLP practitioners, massage therapists, chiropractors, and other types of therapists to seek out training in the field of hypnosis. Combining the skill of hypnosis with other healing modalities is a great way to help clients with decision making, goal achievement, and overall wellbeing.
Everyone can be hypnotized, and anyone can learn hypnosis. Like any skill it requires training from a professional, persistence, patience, and practice.
The amount of time it takes to resolve complex emotional and physical issues is relatively shorter using hypnosis compared to other more traditional forms of therapy.
Some issues can be transformed in as little as one session. Others require a series of sessions. It depends on the issue and the client.
The following list represents the most common uses to be addressed and resolved with hypnosis.
- Improving sports performance
- Improving sexual performance
- Increasing productivity at work, school, or home
- Improve study skills
- Eliminate test anxiety
- Eliminate public speaking anxiety
- Eliminate phobias about flying, going to the dentist, spiders
- Increase confidence and self-esteem
- Give up smoking
- Give up alcohol
- Lose weight
- Create good sleep habits
- Manage fear and pain of childbirth
- Release emotional trauma
- Manage stress and anxiety
- Give up ruminating over past events

- And much, much more!
Upon graduation after your twelve-week course, you will be fully trained and ready to work with clients on a variety of issues. Once you have completed your training at Hypnosis Trainings and are working with clients on a regular basis you will be ready to add to your toolbox of skills.
As an ICBCH Certified Professional Hypnotist you are part of a thriving educational community of other professionals. You will have access to additional training in any field you are interested in by top-notch trainers offering state-of-the-art training both in person and online.
You are joining a community of professionals eager to help one another become better at this craft in any way possible.
Online hypnosis training is very common and makes quality training available worldwide regardless of your location. If you prefer a brick-and-mortar classroom environment, simply google hypnosis training in your area to see what is available. Regardless of your choice, make sure you are being trained and certified by a reputable organization such as the ICBCH.
Hypnosis is an unregulated industry and therefore does not require a license in most states. However, check with the rules for your state. You may not need a license as a hypnotist, but you will most certainly need a business license to run your business. Also, some states do not allow the use of the term “hypnotherapist” while others do. Most states have organizations for hypnotists that will be able to give you the guidance you need for your specific situation. Check with your local authorities for details on titles and registration requirements.
Hypnosis as a profession can be very lucrative. I make more as a part-time hypnotist than I did as a full-time schoolteacher, and I have complete control over how much or how little I work. I also have complete control over how much or how little I charge.
Rural areas tend to charge less for hypnosis sessions that large urban areas. You will be in total control of how much you charge. Call other hypnotists in your area to get a feel for the going rate in your area.
You can also sell discounted sessions in groups of four or six or more. As a self-employed professionally trained hypnotist you have the liberty to structure your business anyway you choose.
You can also earn money as a hypnotist in public speaking venues, offering live group sessions, writing books, and more. The possibilities are endless.
Being a great hypnotist and being great at running a business are two different skill sets. I am a great hypnotist, but the “behind the scenes” tasks of running a business are not my forte. Therefore, I delegate certain tasks to other professionals, such as web developers, web designers, and bookkeepers. This frees me up to be the best hypnotist I can be!

Assignments are given for your benefit and do not contribute to the hourly requirement for the course. As a professional, you will learn from completing the assignments and becoming more proficient as a hypnotist. This is how you will rise to the top as an excellent hypnotist. I will not dock you for not turning in assignments, however, certification is awarded only to those who are able to demonstrate proficiency as a hypnotist. This will come from daily practice and doing the homework on a regular basis.
