Become an IACT Certified Hypnotist or Upgrade Your Skills
with Karen Hand and Michael Watson
Invest in your future and learn from two internationally known trainers.
Hypnosis is more than just a standard set of scripts and techniques. It is more than a single Elmanian or Conversational concept. You learn those elements and more. You discover how to layer technique into the ART of HYPNOSIS.
PLUS, you experience the advantage of the ZOOM platform for sessions and training. While you learn and practice hypnosis, you install the skills needed for a global hypnosis business.
The in-person live training gives you hands-on training in the classroom setting with monitored practice. You will experience the one-on-one aspects of working with clients in person in an office setting. The on-line training gives you a deeper understanding of using hypnosis as an effective change modality while providing diversity and giving you the experience of working with clients online so you can immediately begin your practice in person and in the expanded venue of interstate or intercontinental client work. This innovative training gives you the flexibility of learning and developing your craft in the classroom and in the comfort of your own home while developing your talents as both an in-person and global hypnotist.
This mentored training program combines live classroom instruction with real time online coursework, hands-on exercises with direct one-on-one feedback from the instructors. The complete program is available for students seeking certification as a hypnotist or hypnotherapist through The International Association of Counselors and Therapists. Each of the modules is also available individually.
