Education, Training Centers & Schools
These schools are listed to help you locate resources to evaluate for your training.
You may want to read our answer to the commonly asked question, "Which hypnotherapy school is the best / most reputable / most respectable?"
Choosing a school is all about choosing the instructors: be sure they have good references and that you like their teaching style. You should feel that they are accomplished and trustworthy hypnotherapists as well as instructors. Attending an open house or auditing an evening of classes is often an excellent way to meet the instructors and get a feel for their style and content.
In addition to the schools listed here, you might also want to Google 'hypnotherapy certification' or Google 'hypnotist certification' for more schools and training centers. Add your city or state name to the search to narrow it to your local area.
