Share Article

Attendees at the 2007 National Guild of Hypnotists Convention will be able to obtain certifications in hypnotism, and as a certified consulting hypnotist. The NGH Convention will offer 280 seminars and workshops in hypnosis and topics related to hypnotism, all of which will count toward NGH Continuing Education Credits. Select classes will provide NAADAC, NBCC and CA CNE approved credits for nurses, counselors and other mental health professionals.

This summer, the National Guild of Hypnotists is offering a certified consulting hypnotist course as part of the NGH Summer Institute and the NGH Convention and Educational Conference. For many who will attend, learning the techniques of hypnotism offers an additional proficiency that they will add to their skills and credentials as nurses, counselors and coaches. For others, becoming a certified consulting hypnotist marks a major career transition and the promise of new opportunities to help people in meaningful ways. Some students in the NGH certified consulting hypnotist course enroll to learn hypnotism purely for themselves. They see hypnosis certification as a way to increase their self-confidence and master techniques of visualization and self-hypnosis.
