It is required to seek out a license to perform hypnosis in your state, and not just get a certification for hypnosis from some trade or technical education training program. Many so-called schools are out to simply make a profit off of the influx of practitioners and students looking for to go to hypnotherapy school to get a license and work as a hypnotherapist. This is something that the industry is trying to fight against in order to preserve the integrity of the profession.
Be reasonably sure to only work with corporations that are approved by the American Council of Hypnotist Examiners which is the only major Hypnosis Certification that requires it’s list of whitelisted schools to carry with it the appropriate state licensing requirements for it’s undergrads. This is a very good place to look. This organization will help you reduce your pool of potential candidate hypnotherapy training program possibilities and only pick and pick from ones that have reached an acceptable level of quality and commitment to it’s classmen.
Usually the amount of hours of instruction required by the A.C.H.E or American Council of Hypnotist Examiners is 200 classroom hours. That is 200 hours of class work only, and does not include the time you spend studying outside of class. The specs are 300 hours for those seeking certification as a Certified Clinical Hynotherapist. Please check with the A.C.H.E and it’s approved schools for specific specs as part of their hypnotherapy course work and curriculum.
