Mission Statement

At Clinical Hypnosis Institute, our mission is to provide excellence in hypnotherapy education and training through state-of-the-art processes that are updated on a regular basis by instructors who are themselves, full time hypnotherapists.  We chose that mission because we believe so strongly in the work we do and in the ability of our students to excel through individual attention, and ongoing support.

Clinical Hypnotherapist Certification

Certified Hypnotherapist, (C.Ht.): There are three courses that lead to certification as a clinical hypnotherapist. Each course module builds on the previous one and includes computer disks that duplicate the written manuals provided to our students with each course. These classes are held on the 2nd and 4th weekend (Saturday/Sunday from 9:00 a.m.to 5:00 p.m.) of each month. Dates may change due to some holidays.


Module I introduces the discipline of hypnosis basics to the beginning student. Hypnotherapy is a two part process of Hypnosis and Therapy.  In Module I the primary focus is on the basics of psychology, hypnotic induction and how it is implemented in order to help someone Stop Smoking and to learn & teach Self Hypnosis.  


In Module II the students are introduced to hypnotic regression therapy and pain management.  Their knowledge and experience will be expanded through the subjects listed below and the use of advanced methods of hypnosis, language skills, and therapeutic processes. Students may apply what they’ve learned in class to work with a client under supervision in a professional hypnotherapy clinic.


In this Module the student learns more advanced Regression Therapy processes through the use of Analytical Hypnotherapy and the subjects listed in the Syllabus.  

We want all of our students to be successful upon graduation and one of the most unique parts of this certification process is the last day of the course when we cover the business aspects of a successful hypnotherapy practice.
