Hypnotherapy Programs

Positively impact people’s lives with the use of Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is a powerful way to support people in making needed life changes. Hypnosis induces a deeply relaxed state of inner concentration and focused attention, nurturing decisions from a state of awareness and clarity, in the safety and comfort of a hypnotherapy session. Hypnosis is also well documented as a way to help relieve pain and anxiety, as well as for smoking cessation and weight release.

Self-hypnosis is a self-empowerment skill used for reducing chronic pain, improving sleep, and/or alleviating some symptoms of anxiety or depression.

SWIHA offers two Hypnotherapy programs: A 100-hour Certificate of Excellence and a Advanced Professional Hypnotherapy Certificate. The 100-hour certificate is designed for personal enrichment and self-empowerment, as well as for gaining additional skills needed to fortify or enrich current Holistic Healthcare Practitioners’ professional practices.

Upon completion, our 100-hour certificate qualifies students for American Board of Hypnotherapists (ABH) membership or National Association of Transpersonal Hypnotherapy (NATH) membership.

Our Advanced Professional Hypnotherapy Certificate is a vocational-focused program designed for those who have successfully completed the 100-hour Certificate in Hypnotherapy and wish to deepen their skills and launch a professional practice. Students completing this program are eligible to take the certification processes for the International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association (IMDHA) and for the American Council of Hypnotist Examiners (ACHE). (The ACHE is only offered to the On Campus students).
