Free Hypnosis Scholarships for Pros Helping American War Veterans

Posted Under: Hypnosis Blog

scholarships-vets.gifHypnosis helps, and the Banyan Hypnosis Center for Training & Services, Inc., a California State Registered School is offering scholarships to professionals who work with war veterans and their families.

These have been very difficult times for the men and women who are serving in our armed forces, especially for those who have experienced the stresses of war. And of course, this stress also affects their families as well. So, we have decided that we want to help, and this is what we would like to do. We would like to provide scholarships for our hypnotherapy certification courses to some of those who are in the helping professions, such as doctors, nurses, counselors, social workers and psychologists who work directly with these brave men, women and their families.

Selection for these scholarships, will be done on a trial and case-by-case basis. Starting with the March 2007 Hypnotherapy Certification course, the Banyan Hypnosis Center will enroll up to two such helping professionals in each class. The size of the scholarship that the person or institution can expect to receive will cover at least 50% off the regular tuition cost, and can go as high as 100% for those who work full time, directly with Armed Forces Personnel, veterans of any war in which the American military has served, and of course their families. Highest preferences will be given to those who will be able to use their hypnosis as part of the service that they provide the vets and their families.

In this way, we hope to bring the rapid relief that advanced hypnotherapeutic techniques can provide to those who have served our country and made us all so proud. We hope this idea will grow and spread. We hope to have helping professionals from a VA Center doing this kind of work on a regular basis. It would truly benefit those who we owe so much to.

The scholarships will be applied to the full 100-plus hour courses given at the Banyan Hypnosis Center for Training & Services, Inc. in Tustin, California.

Upon graduation there will be ongoing support to help to ensure that these valuable techniques are being used in the most effective way to help the vets and their families.

If you know someone who would qualify for this scholarship program please help us to get the word out and tell them about this. By the way, this program also applies to our Hands-On Live Internet Option for our hypnosis certification classes.

More information about this scholarship program can be obtained by calling 714-258-8380 or 800-965-3390. More information at,

    Thank you so much for what you are offering the medical professionals. My son served in Iraq for a year and tragically 4 months after returning home suffering from PTSD took his life. He was only 23 years old. Jason was not comfortable going to the VA hospital, so we had planned a trip to visit with a family friend who is a medicine man on Pine Ridge reservation. Jason was excited to go, but was not able to hang on. I believe if he had received help immediately following his service he would of been given the tools of his own mind to help him work out the trauma he had experienced. Since my son’s death it has been my life mission to continue to demand our government to recognize the trauma of war and offering the care to our combat veterans. I work closely with young veterans in my area and offer support in whatever it may be they are needing. If you could please update me on professionals who are willing to work with veterans, it would be greatly appreciated. The only concern I have is health insurance issues. Most veterans are National Guard or Reserves and do not have the Army health insurance, so for many the VA is their only option. It then becomes a catch 22, they will not go to the VA or are put on a waiting list. And as 88 military families found out in 2005, suicide does not belong on a waiting list.

    Again thank you for all of your support towards our men and women in the military.

    Hello Terri,

    Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I am so sorry to hear about what happened to your son. Unfortunately, too many young men and women are struggling with similar issues, and either they don’t feel comfortable receiving services, or these services aren’t available in their area.

    I can tell you that we have received several applications for our scholarship program, and so, very soon this kind of advanced hypnotherapy will become available to those serving our country and their families. And, I want you to know that we are going to continue with this program so that more and more of the professionals who work with veterans will be able to help them more quickly. I expect that when those helping professionals see the kind of results they can achieve, in a relatively short period of time, they will want to have everyone trained in this kind of therapy.

    Thank you again for taking the time to write a comment, and I commend you for taking on such an important mission in life.

    Cal Banyan
