Hypnosis Certification Organization

Hypnosis Certification OrganizationsIt is not uncommon for someone to ask about this Hypnosis Certification Organization or that Hypnosis Certification Organization. Often the question involves a specific organization they have been told about by another hypnotist. There are many options when it comes to hypnosis training, many schools and many teachers. There are also different Hypnosis Certification Organizations as well. While I feel it is important to select the right instructor, it is important to be aware of the organization that will provide your certification as well.

I look at all certification in general from 2 different points of view, regardless of the type of certification you are seeking. First it provides a goal for learning enough to not only qualify to become certified but also to be able to do the work. In addition it provides credibility to those who seek your expertise to be sure they are comfortable working with you. Again this applies to any sort of certification such as massage therapy, computer networking or hypnotherapy.

Speaking more specifically about hypnosis certification, it is important that you are certified with a Hypnosis Certification Organization that has been around for a number of years and will be around in the future. One test I have discovered to determine if an organization cuts the mustard is to check on the availability of an annual conference and also to check the history of their conferences to discover how long they have been holding them. There’s additional information detail in the links below to other pages in this site.

When people get specific in asking about this organization or that organization it is usually because they have been told by someone that they need to join a specific organization, typically the person sharing this information is a member of the group they suggest, and that makes sense. It is a good thing to be proud of your affiliation with your own Hypnosis Certification Organization. It is also good to know something about the others as well, and I have found that many people have blinders on and do not know much if anything about the other organizations.

In my opinion the major hypnotherapy certification organizations all provide a service and benefits to their members, though some may have unique benefits in one area versus another. The preference of one organization to another may make a difference to the hypnotist, especially if it is the organization who has certified them, however it is very rare for a client to make a choice based on the certification organization. They typically know very little about hypnosis, much less the alphabet soup names such as ACHE, IMDHA, IACT or NGH.

What matters to the client is that you are certified by a major organization, in other words they are looking for credibility. As long as you have the training and expertise to assist them along with the credibility that comes with a certification, there is really not a big difference between one Hypnosis Certification Organization or another to the client.

While I am not a Certified Instructor with NGH, it is my understanding that they, as well as the other hypnotherapy certification organizations, will grandfather you into their organization as long as your training meets the minimum requires in terms of classroom hours. This is usually reviewed on a case by case basis, but I know I was accepted in NGH back in 2008 based on my background. I also work closely with the IACT/IMDHA certification department and it is my understanding that this is how they make decisions on granting certification to people trained elsewhere.

My initial certification was with the American Council of Hypnotist Examiners, ACHE. I maintain that one since it was where I started. I am a Certified Master Trainer and a Certified Hypnotherapist with IACT as well. I joined NGH when I went to their conference back in 2008, that was a huge conference. These days the big conference everyone is talking about is called Hypnothoughts LIVE which is held in Las Vegas every August. I was a speaker at the IACT conference in 2017 and plan to speak there and at Hypnothoughts next year.

Things to Think About When Selecting a Hypnosis School

Mark Johnson IACT 2016 Educator of the Year

IACT 2016 Educator of the YearEvery year at the International Association of Counselors and Therapists (IACT) annual conference they present various awards to members for different reasons. This year IACT presented Certified Master Trainer Mark Johnson the 2016 Educator of the Year Award in recognition of Excellence in Communication and Outstanding Performance.

Mark took advantage of his Master of Music degree and spent 12 years teaching group piano, keyboard and organ lessons. While he began learning hypnosis in 2003, he had the opportunity to watch his father hypnotized people as far back as the 1960’s. With that background in mind, hypnosis and teaching are nothing new for Mark.

In 2010 he began traveling to offer hypnotherapy sessions in a variety of locations in Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Georgia and South Carolina. When Mark started teaching the following year he realized that his travels to offer sessions had created a network of connections that he now uses to teach his Basic and Advanced Hypnotherapy classes in 5 different locations.

In addition to learning from his father, Mark studied with the best of the best in terms of Hypnosis Instructors. He has attended classes with Gil Boyne, Ormond McGill, Randal Churchill and George Bien. In addition, Mark has attended advanced training with Brian Weiss, Michael Newton, David Quigley and Paul Aurand.

Like he does in his sessions, Mark brings all his knowledge and understanding into the classroom when he teaches. He has a extensive training, though he makes a point to explain that he also learns when he works with clients as well as when he teaches. It is important for Hypnotherapy students to understand that working with clients is like going to graduate school.

Basic and Advanced Hypnotherapy Training

Our hypnotherapy students often attend hypnosis conferences after their initial training. The people they meet are often amazed at how much they were able to learn by attending my Basic and Advanced Hypnotherapy Training. This training includes advanced hypnosis techniques including parts therapy, regression, medical hypnosis, working with children as well as learning all about hypnotic suggestions and guided imagery techniques.

At a recent International Association of Counselors and Therapists conference in Daytona Beach, Mark was honored with the 2016 Educator of the Year award. While Mark was surprised to receive his award, his students were not surprised at all to discover that their teacher received this recognition.

 

 

 

During the Good Vibes Hypnosis Basic and Advanced Hypnotherapy Training, the information is presented at the most appropriate pace, meaning that we move quicker through things like the history of hypnosis, but spend more time focusing on the important techniques that will be used extensively when you begin working with clients. The days in your Hypnotherapy Training class are long but the class is presented in a relaxed atmosphere and we encourage the students to dress in casual clothes since we have found that people learn better when they can be more relaxed.

Although we typically follow a discussion, demonstration, hands on experience model in our Hypnotherapy Training, each day is filled with variety. This supervised experience using the techniques just presented help the students to learn better than they would just reading a book. We also include video case histories presented by some of he best trainers of today and yesterday.

The day could be described as Hypnosis, Hypnosis, Hypnosis! Our classes are offered in a small group environment which means the students will be able to experience hypnosis as the client and the hypnotist and we often help our students with challenges in their life as part of the training. This might include us working with a student, or another student working with a student. Either way we’ll be right there to make sure things go as they should.

I enjoy offering Hypnotherapy Training, my students are motivated to learn and that makes a big difference. It is quite a change from teaching piano classes like I was doing 25 years ago. I enjoy working with clients and would never give that up, but sharing what I have learned in years of training and hands on experience with my hypnotherapy students has made this work special to me in many ways.

Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy Training Benefits

Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy Training BenefitsHypnosis is a dynamic process that can dramatically assist clients with improving any kind of performance such as sports performance or even public speaking. A great Hypnotherapy Training course will teach you the proper hypnotic processes and will empower you to be able to help clients improve health, relationships, confidence, recall and creativity. Often clients can achieve powerful changes when it comes to chronic or acute pain control as well as overcome habits, addictions, fears and phobias.

Hypnotherapy Training benefits the hypnotherapist and others by assisting with various forms of self-development. These might involve hypnosis for self-discovery, stress reduction, a healthier form of self-expression and therapeutic processes to help deal with past traumas. The results of a relatively brief series of hypnotherapy sessions, when compared to the more traditional therapeutic modalities, have been found to be faster, more effective and longer lasting. This is why there are so many professionals already involved in the healing arts are deciding to learn hypnosis and incorporate it within their practice.

In order to provide your hypnotherapy clients with powerful, lasting, and fairly rapid results the training and experience of the hypnotherapist must include a variety of methods to be able to both reach and effect the subconscious mind. This work is not about working with the conscious mind, it is all about working on the subconscious level. The subconscious is the seat of the emotions and it’s also responsible for memory, habits, imagination and intuition. This part of the mind is the core of our being and is what creates our experience of ourselves as well as the world around us. Meaningful transformation on a personal level can only occur as a result of a shift that takes place in the subconscious mind.

Hypnosis can be a spontaneous natural state that can that is also an altered state which is beyond ordinary consciousness. In addition, Hypnosis is the best way to access the subconscious mind while also bypassing the critical factor of the conscious mind. Initial processes when working with hypnosis involve a variety of different inductions and deepening techniques. Once the client has entered into a state of hypnosis there are many different forms of healing available in terms of transforming the subconscious.

Hypnotherapy Training benefits will enhance your ability to help others whether you use hypnosis in conjunction with other therapeutic methods or it stands on it’s own in your practice. The fact is, no matter what kind of work you do it is important to understand that the best therapists use hypnotic methods, though they may choose not to call it hypnosis.

Good Vibes Hypnosis Training is available in Dallas, Phoenix, Houston, New Orleans and Atlanta at various times of the year. As you may have heard before, when the student is ready the teacher will appear. Are you ready?
