Hypnotherapy & Medical Hypnotherapy Training

I offer group classes for Hypnosis Certification, Clinical Hypnotherapy, and Integrative Medical Hypnosis. As an instructor for the International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association and the International Certification Board of Clinical Hypnotherapy, I offer certifications for both organizations. I also teach specialties at online and live conferences, and enjoy putting together customized training for medical professionals to integrate hypnosis into their practice.

Upcoming Training Events

Become a Certified Hypnotist — March 12-17, 2019

Prepare to be a confident, capable hypnosis practitioner. Taught by Tracy Barrett Adams, board-certified medical hypnotherapist and trainer, this 100-hour certification course combines online and live sessions, and provides mentorship and support for the new practitioner.

My focus as a trainer reflects my experience with thousands of clients who’ve used hypnosis to discover their own strengths and resources, becoming more present in the moment and move forward with new ways of thinking. Hypnosis is a grounded process for creating quick and permanent changes. You’ll learn systems for developing emotional resources, resolving past conflicts, and making the most of the brain’s neuroplasticity to galvanize these changes.

Hypnosis for Migraine 
Online, September 15-16, 2018
Tuition: Various
Click here to register

Migraine is the third most common disease in the world, and studies estimate that nearly 15% of the global population suffer with migraines. Not just a “bad headache,” migraine can be a complex array of pain, visual disturbances, and sensitivity to all stimulation – most sufferers are unable to work or function normally. Neurologists and patients are actively looking for alternatives to available medications (which often come with unpleasant side effects), and I’ve built a thriving practice on physician referrals. This is a condensed, content-rich session to equip you with the right questions to ask your clients, the tools to help them create change.

Application: Understand what’s happening in the body during a migraine, and learn techniques for heading off triggers, relax restricted blood vessels, and reversing the headache pattern

Tuition: $295 US
Click here to register

This online training is offered to hypnosis and birthing professionals. Become certified to teach this 2.5 hour class designed for pregnant women and new mothers. Developed by Kira Dorrian and Tracy Barrett Adams (each a mother of twins), this fun, practical class teaches easy and fast self-hypnosis techniques to  make the most of limited sleep, keep calm and balanced on challenging days, and find focus and mindfulness amidst the myriad of feelings that mothers face.

In addition to several easily learned, quickly utilized techniques, this course also provides mothers handouts with step-by-step instructions for all techniques covered in the class, and access to download several audio recordings. The syllabus comes complete with two different practitioner guides, giving you the flexibility to offer this class to pregnant moms-to-be or to mothers who have already had their babies.

“As a clinical social worker, over the years I have developed a very high bar when it comes to trainings, Kira and Tracy met or exceeded that bar with their compassion, enthusiasm and engaging way of sharing “their baby” i.e., HypnoMothering . . . They have put together an amazing curriculum that sets mothers up for success in a non-judgmental and accepting way. I feel fortunate that I am able to be a part of HypnoMothering”  Shannon Waliser, MSW
