Hypnotherapy Programs

One of the ways Hypnotherapy works is by altering our state of consciousness in such a way that the analytical left-hand side of the brain is turned off, while the non-analytical right-hand side is made more alert. With the conscious part of the mind inhibited, and the subconscious mind can awaken, allowing the person being hypnotized to experience deep relaxation, resolve deep seated issues and change how they experience anxiety, fears, sleeplessness, negative habits and thoughts. Hypnotherapy is also effective in supporting weight release and smoking cessation. We have developed a unique, no-nonsense approach to Hypnotherapy, incorporating practical, spiritual and holistic perspectives into our programs.

NOTE: Except for our Clinical Hypnotherapy Certificate, our certificates of excellence are not designed to serve as stand-alone vocational training and will not prepare you for gainful employment if taken independently of a diploma or degree program.

Hypnotherapy Certificate of Excellence – 100 hour – Online + On-Campus

Our 100-Hour Hypnotherapy Certificate of Excellence is designed for personal enrichment, self-empowerment, and offers skills that could be added to an existing holistic healthcare practitioner’s practice. This certificate is designed to give students a solid introduction to hypnotherapy, including the history, theory and evolution of this holistic modality. This program is a blend of lecture, demos, discussion and practice of hypnosis technique. Students observe and practice introductory hypnosis techniques on one another, as well as have the opportunity to bring friend and family in for complimentary session in the third module of training.

Graduates of our 100-hour Hypnotherapy Certificate of Excellence are eligible for membership into either the National Association of Transpersonal Hypnotherapists (NATH) or American Board of Hypnotherapy (ABH).

This Certificate is vocationally oriented and designed to deepen a practitioner’s skills and teach them how to establish a private practice.

This certificate is designed to teach you how to work with individuals to help them manage fears, phobias, and addictions. Within the focus of this program you will have the opportunity to explore past life regression therapy, advanced techniques, subconscious intervention, and script writing. This program also includes SWIHA’s Introduction to Life Coaching 20-hour weekend intensive.

Hypnotherapy Classes

Clinical Hypnotherapy Classes

Our Clinical Hypnotherapy Program will include the foundation classes listed above and along with these:


The Power of Hypnotherapy

Our program is taught through the Transpersonal Hypnotherapy perspective, which is the bridge between the mind, body and spirit, our program includes the clinical aspects of hypnosis, with many therapeutic interventions, that fully embrace the spiritual and metaphysical side of hypnosis. This has been proven effective in easing a wide variety of physical, emotional and psychological problems. By using guided imagery and harnessing the power of the subconscious mind, powerful healing and transformation can occur.

Strategic Partnership With Banner Hospitals

Banner Estrella Medical Center started offering guided imagery to their patients, and a number of graduates of our Hypnotherapy and Clinical Hypnotherapy Practitioner Certificates of Excellence chose to be volunteers in the pilot program. The success has been amazing. When the project first began, the hospital designated two departments that volunteers could assist clients with pain management, stress management, and nausea levels. We are now in seven different departments, including the Emergency Department.

Here’s what some of our grads have to say about their experience:

• “This is an important opportunity to demonstrate objectively the benefits Guided Imagery/Hypnosis can bring to hospital patients and the staff, improving the well-being of both groups.”

• “I clearly see how effective guided imagery can be when offered in conjunction with the regular treatments and medications. For people to be able to experience relief from the pain and other symptoms due to treatments for cancer and other ailments, even if it is temporary, is amazing. Teaching people that they can experience this, use these techniques and can summon this whenever they want is so amazing.”


About Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is an effective form of treatment in which the practitioner uses guided deep relaxation, highly focused concentration, and vivid imagery to help clients resolve issues at a deep level. Hypnotherapy takes place in a profoundly relaxed, yet completely aware and natural state. A hypnotherapist facilitates communication in the client’s subconscious mind, in the area where memories and habits are stored, and uses mental imagery to help clients create the positive changes they are seeking. The client willingly allows the relaxation and hypnotic state to take place, while having the ability to stop the session at any time.

Hypnotherapy Can Assist With:

  • Pain management
  • Self-confidence building
  • Improving concentration and motivation
  • Anger Management
  • Releasing negative relationships
  • Realizing life goals
  • Positive thinking
  • Stress reduction
  • Panic attack and OCD management
  • Relieving phobias
  • Sports performance improvement
  • And more…
About Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is accepted by the American Medical Association (AMA) as an officially recognized therapeutic model for healing.


Hypnotherapy Study

Hypnotherapy is a powerful, dynamic process that can lead people onto a path of permanent healing and well-being. A hypnotherapist works with their client’s subconscious mind, guiding them to the root of their issues and helping them to work out their problems by resolving unsettled questions or obstacles.

Countless articles and studies have been reported on the benefits of hypnotherapy for a wide variety of physical, emotional and psychological problems. On his television show, Dr. Oz called hypnosis ‘One of the most effective ways to lose weight.” A study reported in 2007 by American Health Magazine compared three forms of therapy with their percentage of recovery and found:

Psychoanalysis: 38% recovery after 600 sessions | Behavior Therapy: 72% recovery after 22 sessions | Hypnotherapy: 93% recovery after 6 sessions
