Foundational Hypnotherapy Certification
Next 8-Day (100-hour) Course: January 2 – 5 and February 20 – 23
What Sets This Training Apart?
Grounded & Experienced TeacherYou are learning from a full-time medical hypnotherapy practitioner. The course content reflects Tracy’s work with thousands of clients as they’ve achieved lasting changes in behaviors, and created physical and emotional comfort. Tracy spends time with each student to help you identify and tap into your strengths as a person and a practitioner.
Positive ApproachWithout reliving trauma or pain, you’ll be able to help clients resolve issues at the deepest levels. This course will equip you to utilize hypnosis to gently move beyond past hurts from a position of resourcefulness and strength, making the most of the brain’s neuroplasticity to galvanize new choices.
Flexible MethodsNo cookie cutter systems here. Because no two people are alike, there is no “one size fits all” hypnosis method. And yet, it doesn’t have to be complicated. This course will equip you with a versatile hypnotic skillset. You’ll learn principles and techniques from many schools of thought, preparing to meet each client as an individual.
Paced for Confidence
This course affords time for practice and feedback, so you’ll be confident using hypnosis ethically, safely, and effectively. We begin with a four-day intensive to ground you in basic theory and methods. During the six weeks between intensives you’ll complete independent assignments with the support of group online meetings. The concluding four-day intensive will build on your layers of learning with advanced techniques, and energize your launch as a practitioner.

Mentoring Program Availalbe
If you’d like more accountability and support for your entry into the hypnosis profession, follow-up mentoring is a wonderful way to streamline your transition from training to clinical practice.
There are a couple of options:
Group meetings: Each call will include a progress report, then guidance and encouragement to help you build momentum. Depending on the needs of the group, we’ll review techniques, and questions about practice, business, and marketing.
Individual mentoring: These sessions are about building on your specific strengths, and bolstering areas that are under construction.
