Advanced Strategies Included in Your Course

You will learn useful and strategic business skills for making the journey to being a professional hypnotist. Learn how to be successful without taking a separate marketing or business course.

Instant and Rapid Inductions

Hypnotize with Certainty and Confidence

We will show you through a set of convincer and deepening techniques how to ensure that the person is in a hypnotic state, so you can be confident that the person is in a state of hypnosis.

The Power Intake

Previous classes have remarked on how this section has changed their lives. Having spent many years learning the proper strategies for an effective client intake and pre-talk, we bring those strategies to you.

Instant Self-Hypnosis

We will teach you how to go into a powerful self-hypnotic state in only a few seconds.

Pain Relief with Hypnosis

Learn how to create hypnotic anesthesia and analgesia with several easy-to-apply techniques.

The Ultra-Deep States

Go deeper in hypnosis than you may have ever thought possible, creating full-body catalepsy and unconscious ideomotor responses.

Ericksonian Metaphors for Change

Learn the metaphorical basis for Milton Erickson’s work as a hypnotist from an inside-out perspective.

Bonus Materials

In addition to the standard NGH materials, you will receive:

• An exclusive resource CD packed with information and knowledge

• Outlines for Talks and Events: How to become a Master Public Speaker

• Additional scripts and articles for your continued learning

• Continual Support, Coaching, and Guidance

Our Training Format

You will become a Certified Hypnotist either in a 4 week 100-hour training every other weekend (equivalent to 2 college semesters), or in an 6-day intensive (when offered). Our trainings are generally on the weekends.

This is an experiential class where you will both be taught the technical details and you will develop the skills through quite a bit of practice with others. We use Brain-Based Teaching and Training techniques to facilitate both conscious and unconscious integration.
