Are you the one we're looking for?
Because hypnotherapy training isn't for everybody. It brings with it a set of skills and an ability to
deepen your influence, and you need to use it wisely. But if you've already discovered that you really enjoy supporting others in the pursuit of their goals, or that you're deeply interested in how people can free themselves of unwanted habits and limitations from the past ... or maybe it's just a profound curiosity about making contact with the mysterious and creative unconscious mind ... then we'd love for you to join us.
What makes this program different from the rest?
Our approach is Neo-Ericksonian. We're into evolution. We don't want to control people but empower them, so that's what we focus on. This isn't street hypnosis, or stage hypnosis and we're probably not going to show you how to get your friend's hand stuck to his beer glass. There are other places to learn those things. Everything we teach is aimed at improving the quality of life for you, your clients, friends, and loved ones. We're not interested in using these special skills to manipulate anyone to do anything ... but in accessing and utilizing the deep wisdom and resourcefulness that lies within them as they open up to new possibilities. (Click here for an article about Neo-Ericksonian Hypnosis.)
We create a supportive learning circle
And we keep our programs small and close-up (limit 8) to ensure the best possible training for your skill development. We want you to succeed. You won't get lost in the crowd but can become one of the few and benefit from the individual support, personal coaching and mentorship of Michael and his team of assistants.
Beyond the classroom - "Externship" Modules
To offer the most thorough and immersive training possible, while allowing you to get on with your life, we offer some of the training outside regular classroom hours and by remote access. Along with the live weekends, there will be 3 evening online sessions (90 mins) to give you something more as you integrate these skills. These modules support the class material and also help you prepare for professional practice. There will be some homework for you to do to help you integrate the material.
As well as extensive knowledge, skill and a great presenting style, Michael is also one of the most generous people I have had the pleasure of learning with. He is always willing to go the extra mile and spend time ensuring you have understood the material and often goes beyond the
curriculum offering extra insight and skills development. Pete Bryceland - The Bryceland Practice.

Augmented by the work of Dr Milton Erickson and contributions of his many students, the material in this program ranges from a fresh look at traditional methods to the latest developments and ground-breaking models in the field of human consciousness.
Successful completion of this course meets the requirements for certification through the International Association of Counselors and Therapists (IACT).

PLEASE NOTE - The laws pertaining to the practice of hypnosis and hypnotherapy vary from state to state. The course will cover these laws and teach you how to use hypnosis legally in your area
<-- Take a peek We'll change the video on this page weekly between now and the course date, so you can look into the classroom and see what it's going to be like to join us for the training.
This week's video is a segment from Dr George Bien's documentary, Hypnotists Answer the Tough Questions which will be released soon on DVD.
"There's so much to learn! Michael made it fun, memorable, and
thorough. Learning means doing, and Michael's classes emphasized both sides of the experience: we students were both hypnotists and hypnotees, learning fully and well."

"I attended three separate certifications under Michael's instruction (Practitioner, Master Practitioner, Hypnotherapy) His grasp of the content, ability to deliver in a light and enjoyable style, and ability to create a collegial community of learners is unparalleled. Michael's light hearted style, accessibility to students, and breadth of knowledge and experience with the content provided me with a solid understanding of NLP & Hypnosis and how to apply both to better myself and aid others." - Tory Wozny (HR Executive)
