The Diversified Client Centered Hypnotherapy Training curriculum is written by Roy Hunter based on the teachings of hypnosis legend, Charles Tebbetts. This is widely considered to be the highest quality professional hypnosis and hypnotherapy education taught today.

The parts of the curriculum, Basic Hypnosis, Intermediate Hypnotherapy, and Advanced Hypnotherapy, are 50 hours each and build on each other to create an incredibly complete and comprehensive training program.  In addition, an additional 50 hour program in Pain Management will be made available at a future date, to provide 200 total hours in training, which will qualify graduates for membership in IMDHA (International Medical and Dental Hypnosis Association).

Completion of the first two sections, 100 hours total, will qualify graduates for membership in the National Guild of Hypnotists (NGH).

Seats in each class are limited to ensure thorough instruction and participation by all.  We anticipate that these sections will fill, so please plan ahead and submit your application by the deadline.
