Who Is This Course For?

This course is a basic to advanced hypnotherapy certification course and as such we do not presume that you have had any previous training. But if you have trained elsewhere you will find plenty more to learn. This course is for you if:

  • You want a profession where you can work independently and have your own practice.

The Fundamentals are Important! Our Basic Materials and Techniques are Practical and Easy to Understand

When you take this hypnotherapy certification course you will be taught those important fundamentals. By understanding the basics, you build the foundation that you need to be able to easily integrate and use the more advanced materials in the course. Some of the students in this course who have taken other courses will be impressed with how thorough our "basics" really are.

  • How to prepare for a hypnosis session

  • Preparing your client for hypnosis

  • How to hypnotize using basic and advanced techniques

  • Modern efficient, rapid and instant hypnotic inductions

  • How to write and deliver hypnosis scripts

  • How to deepen to specific levels of hypnosis

  • How to test for specific depths of hypnosis

  • How to manage a hypnosis session

  • How to customize your sessions for maximum effectiveness, client success (and referrals)!

Instant Hypnosis Induction

"Even I could understand it!" Josephine Lim Zhen Ru

"The course is comprehensive and the materials are super abundant. For a "non-English speaking" participant, this course is relatively easy to understand.” Sapta Dwikardana, Ph.D., Bandung, Indonesia

"The material taught in this course gives the students the power to change lives; their own and those of others. Everything about the course speaks of the care and energy that went into putting together a program that transmits a great deal of knowledge in a relatively short period of time. The instant inductions alone are worth the price of the course, but the depth of material goes beyond anything I imagined." Vadim Timoshpolsky, B.A. West Hartford, CT

"The course was very thorough, the ‘process’ is a lifesaver. Because of the presentation, it was very understandable. Because of the process it helps build confidence, and gives a therapist ALL the tools they need to work with clients." Randy Cook, Elmwood, WI

This Class Is NOT just A How-To-Hypnotize Class. This is a How-To-Do-Successful-Hypnotherapy-and-become-a-"1%’er" Certification Course!

The Future Belongs to 5-PATH® and 7th Path Self-Hypnosis®! Get certified in these elite forms of hypnotherapy and self-hypnosis and join the best hypnosis providers in the world. Have you ever been to a class, seminar or lecture that is supposed to be for intermediate or advanced practitioners, and then spend most of your time listening to beginning level information? Not this class. Yes, we will provide adequate time for learning the basics, but then, once we know that everyone "up to speed," the course moves into the advanced material. However, even our "basic" material may be new most hypnotists and hypnotherapists trained elsewhere before taking this certification course! This is why our course is considered an elite certification course. You are going to eat, drink and sleep hypnosis for 10 days.

"This class has pulled together so many methods I’ve learned and put the new tools into a useable format. 5-PATH® provides clarity to me as a hypnotist. Just do it, you’ll see what I mean!" Cynthia Brooks, BSN, CH Sullivan, NH

Emphasis of this hypnosis training will be placed on practical application and results.

In addition to providing you with important information and techniques, you will get to practice them, especially instant and rapid inductions, use of convincers and age regression. Each student will have the opportunity to be hypnotized and learn self-hypnosis. Experiencing hypnosis and self-hypnosis is an essential to becoming a well rounded hypnotherapist. Hypnosis and/or self-hypnosis will be experienced by each student nearly every day of the course.

Here is why it is an experiential course:

  • On most days of the course, some time will be set aside for practicing and learning how to teach 7th Path Self-Hypnosis®, a mind-body-spirit approach developed by Mr. Banyan. Most of our students find this to be a real bonus!

  • Most days of the course, the office, classrooms and practice rooms will be open for practicing techniques before the class and after the class averaging a total of two hours a day. This will be a great time to practice hypnotic inductions, deepening and testing techniques as well as doing hypnotic age regression.

  • If you would like to be hypnotized by the instructor, make sure to volunteer during the class. Your instructor will conduct live demonstrations of several inductions, deepening techniques, overt and covert depth testing techniques and more on a few willing volunteers from class.

  • The class will also view videos of Cal Banyan conducting real hypnotherapy sessions, which will include examples of rapid and instant inductions, deepening techniques, hypnotic suggestion techniques, age regression, the Informed Child Technique, and Forgiveness Therapies.

"Excellent as a skill building and personal development course. 5-PATH® brings the professional level of hypnotherapy to new and significantly higher standards. The course materials are complete and well developed. The blend of lecture, experience, practice and videos was effective, appropriate and well balanced." Steve Gruber, BS, MA Quebec, CA

"I found the course to be very comprehensive and practical. The combination of education and practice enables graduates to get the skills and confidence they need to go out and start straight away. The 7th Path Self-Hypnosis® program ensures they won’t be taking too much personal baggage into the therapy room!" Katherine Perry, BA

"Having attended other hypnosis/hypnotherapy training courses, this is by far the very best course I’ve attended. The material is well organized, the instruction is very thorough and the numerous practice sessions allowed me to cement the concepts into my brain." Mike Bowers, N. Canton, OH

The following is a course outline of the National Guild of Hypnotists Approved Certification Training as designed by Cal Banyan at the Banyan Hypnosis Center For Training & Services, Inc.

Total hours for this course are 100 over 10 days. Class time will consist of lecture and supervised practical work, which will constitute 80 hours of the course. Assignments (practice and preparation) outside of class will make up 20 hours of the training. Home assignments will be reviewed during class.

The course is made up of two sections: Level I, consists of Professional Application of Hypnosis, and Level II, consists of Professional Application of Hypnotherapy, Self-Hypnosis and Setting Up Your Practice.

The course outline is not always followed exactly. Because of the instructor-student interaction we move through some part of the material faster or slower depending on the needs of the particular class. For example the class may have more questions about one subject area, and when this occurs more time will be given to that area, while other areas may not need additional attention and then the instructor will move more quickly through that subject area. It is our experience that each class has its own interests and and when possible the instructor will structure the class to best meet the needs of the class as a whole.
