There are several HYPNOTHERAPY SCHOOLS from which to choose. Once you've found a state-approved hypnotherapy school, you can decide if you wish to pursue your certification through a weekend training format, an apprenticeship training format, a residential intensive format, or through distance learning.
[Hypnotherapy schools are regulated/approved by the state in which they do business, and many hynotherapy schools offer basic, intermediate and advanced certification courses. Presently, there aren't any licensing processes for hypnotherapy, nor any accredited university degree programs. Check with your state for rules and regulations which pertain to practicing as a hypnotherapist.]
The field of Hypnotherapy is continuing to expand and one can find appropriate training in any one of these focus areas: medical hypnosis, dental hypnosis, forensic hypnosis, sports hypnosis, business/education hypnosis, regression hypnosis, behavioral hypnosis and hypnotherapy as a tool in psychotherapy.
Most hypnotherapy schools teach students to offer sessions that deal with: smoking cessation, weight control, phobia elimination, habit extinction, personal growth, spiritual growth, performance enhancement, insomnia, past-life regressions and behavioral change. Other topics of which hypnotherapy schools instruct are on ethics/professionalism, marketing and when to refer to a psychotherapist.
