Want to learn hypnosis?

You've come to the right place. 

A Hands-On Approach That Prepares You to Write Your Own Script!

The world is changing fast. Many of the old "scripts" are due for an update. Depending on how you frame it, that can be discouraging, or it can be an amazing opportunity. 

Yet, many hypnosis students struggle with direction after completing a certification training. They might have learned techniques, but they still don't know how to apply those techniques to real contexts, which is the essence of personal and professional actualization. This application gap often results in a lack of confidence that can stop a successful practice before it begins. 

This training doesn't just give you information. It teaches you how to learn, integrate what you learned, and share it with the world. 

My program offers more hands-on experience, hour-for-hour, than any other training on the market, because I only count experience towards certification.

Yes, there are notifications for new content as it is released 

Yes, there's a live interactive component. 

Yes, this program includes scripts, frameworks, an amazing workbook, and more.

 But at the heart of my program, I initiate my students into an experienced perspective, by requiring you to practice, demonstrate, and impart skills to others as part of your learning process.  

After all, isn't all good hypnosis about imparting skills?

By the time you apply for certification, you'll feel confident in your abilities -- not only to perform hypnosis, but also confident in your ability to incorporate your new skills into the context of your life and your career.

Forge lasting relationships with growth-oriented peers in the Experience Lab 

The Secret Sauce

The Experience Lab is a live online weekly immersive learning environment where you can interact with teachers, peers, and people who want to receive hypnosis. You can ask questions, engage with the material, and even go 'off road' and explore topics that are not covered in the training materials.

Again, I only count experience and demonstrated ability toward your certification hours.  Five months membership to the Experience Lab is included with Level 1

But Wait, there's more...

In Level 2, you get ten months membership to THE INCUBATOR, where your professional repertoire will grow as you learn how to offer smoking cessation, weight loss, and anxiety relief, and you can also elect to use the Incubator as a resource to implement your own signature program or process. 

The Incubator is a lot like the the Experience Lab, except the focus is more on professional development. You will recognize and communicate value, clarify your goals, clarify your offer, and take steps to confidently pursue your vision, all within a supportive, structured community of co-conspirators. 

This Training  is for You If: 

* You are a kind, grounded person, and want to help people to have more power, choice, and agency over their own lives

* You are working on yourself, and want to use hypnosis to become even more of who you are

* You want to supercharge your charisma, and use your influence to make the world a better place

* You are self-motivated and able to take responsibility for your learning process

* Your career is based on helping people, and you could use hypnosis to enhance your ability to do so

* You are interested in and willing to put the work into establishing your own hypnosis practice or using hypnosis in some other constructive way

I'm happy to discuss this training in the context of your intentions and goals. Book a call here

This Training is NOT for You If:

x You don't intend to take an active part in your learning process

x You don't take the responsibility of powerful influence seriously

x You are looking for a get-rich-quick scheme

x You are looking for an entertainment-oriented training... this is not that

Are You Sensing That I'm Passionate About This?

I created this training because it is exactly the sort of training that I would have liked to have taken myself. I love to learn, but sitting still for long periods of time is not my thing. I need to get up and move around, and I need to apply what I'm doing and understand why I am doing something. I also made a point to address key areas in which I felt my own initial training was lacking, because I care about the profession and I want to help it grow. 

With video, audio, and text-based learning, along with workbooks that invite handwriting and live weekly meetings, there's something to meet every learning style's needs, and with a strong focus on how to learn, the benefits will continue long after the training is over.

OK, So Where Do I Sign Up?

This is a 100-hour training divided into two sections that can be taken independently of each other. 

The first level (40 hours of experience) focuses on skill mastery. This is suitable for anyone who wants to learn the techniques of therapeutic hypnosis to enhance an existing therapeutic practice, or to prepare for level 2.

 The second level (60 hours of experience) focuses on applications and development of a professional hypnosis practice. This is suitable for people who have taken level 1, or people who have taken any other hypnosis training and want to join the incubator.
