33 year anniversary limited time discount price


According to the Wall Street Journal (Degrees of Value: Making College Pay Off, January 4, 2014), Georgia Institute of Technology is now offering an entirely online master’s degree in computer science. If they’re offering an online master’s degree, that says a lot about how much they trust the ability to deliver online education in a reasonable way. You may decide you don’t want to be a professional Hypnotist, but rather you want to learn self-hypnosis to break negative cycles, and have unlimited confidence. You will also learn how to hypnotize your friends and family.

Watch this short (4:56) introductory Hypnosis training video now:

Introduction to the online hypnosis certification program:

The Hypnosis session Pretalk

The Pretalk is one of the most important parts of any professional hypnotherapy session. It is only done during the first session. Watch this short (10:02) video for a deeper understanding of this very important, yet neglected aspect to effective hypnosis:

The Hypnotic Induction:

An Induction is the tool hypnotherapists use to induce hypnosis. It marks the beginning of hypnosis (and the beginning of the recording you will make for your clients). Inductions come in all shapes and sizes. The following (7:29) video demonstrates an Induction:

The Hypnotic Deepening:

A Deepening varies slightly from an Induction. In fact, the terms deepening and induction are often interchanged. Strictly speaking, however, a deepening comes after the induction and before the Script. The purpose of the deepening, as the name implies, is to drop the patient into a deeper state of consciousness. Watch this short (3:27) Deepening demonstration:

The Hypnosis Script:

Perhaps the most important part of any hypnosis experience, and therefore the most important chapter of this book, is the script. What is a script? A script is the meat of the hypnosis experience. It is where the therapy occurs, watch this short video training:

Hypnotic Amnesia:

Amnesia is the term hypnotherapists use for the section of the hypnotherapy session in which we suggest to the client that she will forget what has been told to her during the session. We want the client’s conscious mind to forget the session because the conscious mind is part of what is causing the problem. Watch this short (3:47) video demonstration:

Hypnosis Trance Termination:

Trance Termination is the way of ending (terminating) the session (trance). Watch this short (5:53) video training:

Don’t be misled by other programs padded out to 300 hours – this industry is self-regulating and the schools are ultimately businesses. Dr. Steve G. Jones strips out all the unnecessary time-wasting filler & just presents to you with all the pertinent information you need to practice safely, successfully and professionally. By completing this course, you will also have lifetime support from Dr. Steve G. Jones and the American Alliance of Hypnotists. Upon graduation, you will be permanently listed in The American Alliance of Hypnotists’ approved Hypnotists list.

“I think one of the biggest mistakes people make is thinking they need to go into a certain profession or act a particular way because a small group of people (usually family and friends) think they should. What the rest of us want is for you to be yourself and to share your unique gifts with the world.” — Dr. Steve G. Jones

Hypnotist Certification Program Course Curriculum

Video Module 1: Introduction

You will learn about the acceptance of modern-day clinical hypnosis, how to control the environment for a powerful hypnosis session, how to record your hypnosis sessions, and the responsibilities of a hypnotist.

Video Module 2: Pre-talk

The pre-talk is the strong foundation of any hypnosis experience. This is the time during which you re-assure the client that the session will be of benefit to them, you discuss what hypnosis is, dispel any myths about hypnosis, and educate the client about specific levels of hypnosis. This module will give you all of this information so that you can share it with your client in a very professional way.

Video Module 3: Induction

Inductions are used to relax the client into a hypnotic state. The proper use of an induction is essential to any hypnosis session. Learn the simple and easy way to induce ANYONE into a hypnotic state.

Video Module 4: Deepening

After inducing hypnosis, you will want to take the client deeper. You will learn the proven techniques to get someone to go deep into total relaxation.

Video Module 5: Scripts

Scripts are what the session is all about. You have relaxed the client, and deepened that sense of relaxation. Now it is time to deliver the message of positive change to their subconscious mind. You will receive a series of very powerful scripts and learn how to create your own.

Video Module 6: Amnesia

This is one of the more fascinating topics in hypnosis. The idea is that you want the client’s conscious mind to forget what has happened in the session so that they do not over-analyze the experience. The memory still remains with the subconscious mind so that change becomes an effortless process.

Video Module 7: Trance Termination

After you have successfully relaxed the client, imparted the positive change information, and allowed them to consciously forget the session, you will need to end the session. This module will teach you the proper and effective way of ending (terminating) the session (trance).

Video Module 8: Final Exam

Upon completion of the course, you will want to demonstrate your new powerful abilities. This is a chance for you to do just that. You will receive a written exam and will also be required to submit an audio recording which you will already have completed as part of your homework.

When you enroll on your Hypnotist Certification Program, you receive these four special bonuses…

Special Bonus #1

Business Guide for Hypnotists


The goal of this book is to give the potential or practicing hypnotherapist a strong base for building their practice. Online and offline best practices are discussed and the student should be familiar with Internet marketing and networking opportunities when finished.

You will be guided through a basic hypnotherapy session, including homework opportunities to use and modify the hypnosis techniques taught in the program. This will allow you to help others lose weight, find love and increase their financial success, among other issues.

Special Bonus #2

Basic Hypnotherapy for Professionals


Hypnotherapy practices deal with four stages of consciousness: Beta, Alpha, Theta and Delta.

Hypnotherapy is a combination of hypnosis and therapy. This volume gives the student a solid background in hypnotherapy, from ethics to designing effective hypnotherapy sessions.


Special Bonus #3

Hypnotherapy Inductions and Deepenings: Volume One

An induction is the tool that hypnotherapists use to induce hypnosis, It marks the beginning of hypnosis (and the beginning of the recording you will make for your clients). Inductions come in all shapes and sizes.


A deepening varies only slightly from an induction. In fact, the terms deepening and induction are ofter an interchanged. Strictly speaking, however, a deepening comes after and induction and before a script.

The purpose of the deepening, as the name implies, is to drop the patient into a deeper state of consciousness.

You will learn how to develop your own inductions and deepenings, plus have access to many established, proven ones.

Special Bonus #4

Hypnotherapy Scripts Volume One


Perhaps the most important part of any hypnosis experience, and therefore the most important module title of this course, is the script.

A script is the meat of the hypnosis experience. It is where the therapy occurs. If you do not have a script, you are not doing hypnotherapy. You may be hypnotizing your client, but you are not helping anyone. A script is the portion of the hypnosis session during which you suggest change.

This section includes proven scripts on specific topics, such as weight loss, anxiety, confidence, motivation, depression, smoking and others.

By practicing these scripts and then modifying them to your own hypnotherapy style, you will move quickly toward being a better hypnotherapist.

And here is more from one of our online hypnotherapy certification class graduates:

FAQ’s for Hypnotist Certification Program

Q: I have no prior experience as a hypnotist, are you saying this program will fully prepare me to be a practicing hypnotist?
A: Yes. Many programs try to make hypnosis something that it is not. They will tell you that you will need to study for a certain number of hours or even years.

Q: Does this course teach self-hypnosis or hypnosis?
A: This course teaches you hypnosis so that you can perform hypnosis on other people. You will be able to apply what you have learned if you wish to use self-hypnosis.

A: The course is a self-study program based 100% Online and correspondence will be through email or mail, whichever you prefer. Upon enrollment, you will be provided with the following PDF’s and forms:

Q: How many modules and exams are a part of this course? How long are we given to complete them?
A: The course consists of 7 modules with the 8th module being the final exam. It generally takes 1 week for students to complete a module, but you can go at your own pace. Module 2-7 have homework that must be completed.

Q: How is the final exam conducted and how long do I have to complete it?
A: On the last page of your course manual is a private registration code you will use to register for the online exam. The multiple-choice exam consists of 19 questions. You must get 75% correct in order to pass the multiple-choice portion of the exam. You will have 3 attempts to pass. If you fail 3 times, you will be locked out of re-taking the exam for 60 days. You will then get another 3 attempts. Upon passing the multiple-choice exam, you will then need to upload your course homework, including transcription and recording of your hypnosis session. You must also submit an essay. Dr. Steve will review all of your work at one time. Please allow one week for him to review your material.

Q: How long after completing the program will we receive our results?
A: Please allow Dr. Steve one week to review your submitted material. You will be notified via email whether you passed or failed.

Q: I understand that the class is a minimum of 8 weeks and a maximum of 1 year. What if I would like to complete the class in a shorter time period of 8 weeks or longer than 1 year?
A: If you want to complete it in shorter than 8 weeks, simply follow the instructions on the last page of your course manual. 8 weeks is only a suggested time period for people to pace themselves in a stress-free manner. We welcome course work turned in prior to 8 weeks. If you need to take longer than a year to complete the program, simply email Steve and request an extension. Extensions are always granted as long as the situation warrants it.

Q: Some programs I have seen Online are 300 hours or more. This training is much shorter. Is it just as good as those other programs?
A: Yes. In fact, this program is superior to any other hypnosis training currently available. In our extensive study of other training programs, we have found that the majority of programs available waste a considerable amount of time training hypnotists to perform procedures, which are generally reserved for licensed professionals such as psychologists or psychiatrists. Aside from creating a legal liability for the hypnotist, these programs also waste the money of the unsuspecting hypnosis student. Questions about the Certification

Q: Will I be properly trained if all I take is your Online certification program?
A: Ideally a hypnotist would be trained in a classroom setting with an instructor physically present. Unfortunately, this luxury is not practical for many people. When we factor in airfare, hotel, time away from work and family, etc. the costs both monetary and otherwise quickly add up. For this reason, many institutions have turned to Online training as a viable alternative to meeting modern day needs. In fact, Columbia, Harvard, and Cornell have extensive Online programs. Also, Penn, Dartmouth, and Yale offer Online classes. Dr. Steve G. Jones, while working on his doctorate in education, extensively studied the Online programs offered by Ivy League schools. He then was able to model the hypnosis training program to offer a similar level of training.

Q: Will your certification be accepted in my state (any state in the US)?
A: Yes.

Q: Is this the only training I will need for my state?
A: Yes, this is the only training you will need in order to call yourself a certified hypnotist. However, you are encouraged to see our list of states in the United States that have regulations concerning hypnosis and you are also advised to seek legal advice when in doubt.

Q: Will your certification be accepted in my country (any country other than the US)?
A: Yes. Most countries other than the US do not regulate hypnotists. To be certain, be sure to check with your local guidelines.

Q: When I complete the program, what will my title be?
A: You will be a Certified Hypnotist

Q: Which organization grants the certificate and certifies my training?
A: The American Alliance of Hypnotists.

Q: I live outside the US, is this training still valid for me?
A: You are encouraged to research the laws in your area. We do not have a list of legal requirements by country. We do however have graduates of this hypnosis certificaion program practicing in many countries around the world. If you live in Ontario, Canada, we do have a document that will give you some guidance. You can find it here.

Q: Is the hypnosis certification recognized by any universities?
A: Although our program is taught in several universities and the main text book, Basic Hypnotherapy for Professionals, is a class text book designed for classroom instruction, we are not aware of any universities that recognize credits for this program. Questions about the Certificate

Q: Will I receive a certificate?
A: Upon completion of this program, you will receive a beautiful certificate via email, which you can print out and proudly display for your clients to see. It will have your name, title (Certified Hypnotist), and your certification number.

Q: What will the certificate look like? Is there a sample?
A: Click here for the sample of the certificate.
