With the general public becoming more mind/body aware, the need for hypnotism increases every year.

This innovative program is designed to give the participants a working understanding of hypnotism. The course is practical and down-to-earth, concentrating heavily on the how-to-do-it aspects. Students are not simply taught all about hypnosis.

By means of supervised practice sessions, you will be trained to actually produce the hypnotic state and use it skillfully and effectively. Well thought out, tested-and-true, this course will help you to master your hypnotism skills and increase your results.

Upon completion of all class hours plus hands-on practice and independent study, students will be eligible for examination leading to graduation as a Certified Hypnotist. The internationally recognized core-curriculum is reviewed, annotated and upgraded annually by our N.G.H. adjunct faculty and is further enhanced by the personal knowledge and experience of your instructor.

Topics of this comprehensive course will include –
