Just the other day someone asked me who do I train to become hypnotists? That made me think. Over the years I have had many people ask me why would I want to be a hypnotist and what type of people do I train to become a hypnotist. I find these questions interesting because it shows me the mystery and misconceptions that are still out there about what hypnosis is and does.
Why does one become a hypnotist? Usually the three main reasons a person becomes a hypnotist is to help people, for self-enrichment, and because they enjoy performing as in hypnosis stage shows. I believe in each case they are helping people. From the therapeutic aspect, helping people stop smoking, lose weight, release stress, release fears and more is obvious help. You may wonder how a hypnosis stage show helps people. It makes them laugh. It makes them happy, and that helps. Laughing is therapeutic and good for the soul. Some people want to learn hypnosis to improve themselves.
What type of people want to become hypnotists? Many people want to become a hypnotist. My classes have consisted of a wide variety of students, there for different reasons. Some examples of the variety of people that I trained were professionals including Real Estate Agents, Engineers, Accountants, Bakers, Coaches, Counselors, Dietitians, Teachers, Nurses, Cosmetologists. There have been seekers on their path of spirituality, people who wanted to know how for self-enrichment and personal reasons, and even other hypnotists that want the additional training, credibility and the prestige of being trained and certified by the National Guild of Hypnotists (NGH). It is not the stereotype “weird” person that is a hypnotist, although it can be. Professional people, everyday people, housewives, spiritual people, and more become hypnotists.
My training class is a hands on course that consists of lecture, demonstration, fun and practice, practice, practice. There will be some self-study. Manuals and other materials are included. Upon completion of National Guild of Hypnotists certification a one year FREE membership in the National Guild of Hypnotists is also included (a $135 value) which includes subscriptions to Hypno-Gram and Journal of Hypnotism.
- What sets this training apart from others is that in addition to The Guild’s Training, you will learn additional techniques including some NLP that can be implemented right away to enhance rapport, your accessing skills, and the success of the client. There are innovative techniques, scripts, CD’s, and many extras.
