In this course, students will learn hypnosis using the performance method, gaining actual hands-on experience. Upon completion of the course, students are well trained and prepared to interact with clients in a professional setting as an NGH certified Consulting Hypnotist.

It is important to find your hypnotist voice during this training as it's the most important tool used in hypnosis. In order to achieve this ability to "speak in cursive” students’ nightly homework assignment is to practice hypnosis with friends and relatives, or in front of a mirror, in between class meetings.

As part of your final exam, you will work with a real client, doing a full session, from the initial greeting to the debriefing.

Practicum hours (approximately 52) include:

  • Students are responsible for reading the daily lessons ahead of time and having corresponding questions ready for each class period.
  • By the end of the program, each student will have created a complete stand-alone program for self-hypnosis, which can be presented to groups of all sizes. This course can be a springboard for the hypnotist to be accepted as the expert on hypnosis in their community.
  • By the end of the program, each student will present a 3-5 minute explanation of hypnosis, what it is, and how it works.
  • Intensive study and answering of the take home quiz sent to each student at the end of each class meeting. Quiz answers will be reviewed at the beginning of class each Saturday, excluding the first day of class.
  • The final exam, the NGH exam, is a take home exam and will be reviewed and corrected in class on the last day.
