This innovative program is designed to give the participants a working understanding of hypnotherapy.  The
course is practical and down-to-earth, concentrating heavily on the how-to-do-it aspects.  Students are not
simply taught all about hypnosis.  By means of supervised practice sessions, you will be trained to actually
produce the hypnotic state and use it skillfully and effectively.  Well thought out, tried-and-true, this course will
help you to master your hypnotherapy skills and increase your results.   Upon completion of all class hours plus
hands-on practice and independent study, students will be eligible for examination leading to graduation as a
annually by our N.G.H. adjunct faculty and is further enhanced by the personal knowledge and experience of
your instructor.

What is a Hypnotherapist?  The U.S. Department of Labor declares that Hypnotherapy is an occupation within
itself.  The following legal definition is listed in the Dictionary of Occupational Titles.  079.157.010 "Induces
hypnotic state in client to increase motivation or alter behavior pattern through hypnosis."

What are the prerequisites for the class?  It has been found that past training plays a very small role in one's
ability to use hypnosis effectively, so there are no prerequisites for the training.

What is the income potential?  Fees vary from $50.00 to $150.00 per hour for sessions.

Will I be capable of learning the material?  Yes, Yes, and Yes!  The class is broken down into small training
sections to ensure that everyone can succeed.

What Happens if I miss a class?  Every class is recorded.  If you miss a class, you will receive a tape or CD of the
class from the day you missed.  There is no charge for this service.
