    Hello Cal,

    I am a certification stating “Clinical Hypnotherapist” which came with NLP and Life Coaching. I have been trying to find out what the difference is between a hypnotist, certified hypnotherapist and a Clinical hypnotherapist. When ever I look on the internet, I just get more confused. I love watching you and plan on taking your advanced courses soon. But could you please clear up the confusion for me?
    Thank you.

  2. Cal Banyan, MA, BCH, CI, DNGH April 17, 2012 at 11:56 AM

    Hello Susan – Thanks for leaving a question/comment! I’m so glad you like watching and listening to the program. Please tell your HypnoFriends.

    Here is the deal, the real answer to your question, there is no difference between titles and they mean the same thing.

    Different organizations use or promote one title over an other. In the past “Hypnotherapist” has always carried more prestige, or at least that is what was thought, but it never really denoted better training than hypnosis certification. The best determination of the quality of training depends on each individual organization and instructor. There now is a movement in the profession led by the National Guild of Hypnotists toward using “Certified Hypnotist” or “Consulting Hypnotist” in order to avoid legal difficulties.

    Some states are more liberal about the practice of hypnotism, and some state are down right paranoid about it. That is why when people take my certification courses we offer a choice between “Certified Hypnotist”, “Consluting Hypnotist” and “Hypnotherapist”. The NGH does the same.

    I’ll see if it is okay with one of my co-hosts and we will talk about it some more in a future video episode.

    Here’s to YOUR success,

    Hi Cal,
    Enjoyed listening to Meredith here on talking about bringing Spirituality into her work and processes and being healthy and `clear` and the mention of tools that can be used between sessions by therapists and perhaps teaching them to clients too. Yes, subtlety is the key. Thank you. Michael

  4. Cal Banyan, MA, BCH, CI, DNGH April 23, 2012 at 11:28 AM

    Thanks Michael – We always appreciate your comments and participation.


  5. Grace Sevilly April 23, 2012 at 7:12 PM

    I really enjoyed this video, Meredith has a knack for making me feel calm and relaxed with her style, and being one with spirituality works wonders

  6. Meredith Locher, MA, CH May 1, 2012 at 1:32 PM

    Thanks so much for your comments, Michael and Grace! I am happy that my sharing was helpful and/or reinforcing. I do feel that we are each tuning forks and the more highly tuned we each are vibrationally, the more we can raise up our clients just by being with them and then, of course, all the hypnosis processing is a whole other level of transformation. I actually am just coming back from a one week personal retreat where I did a whole lot to tune myself up even higher. Feels so great to know that we are in charge of how good we feel! And now I get to bring my best self back to sessions. Watch out! 🙂


  7. Dr. Michael Millett May 2, 2012 at 3:22 AM

    Hi Meredith. Good to hear from you. I agree with you that we are each tuning forks and raising our vibration enables us to receive a more direct guidance and clearer guidance from our Higher self because it vibrates at a higher rate. And yes, having this direct link allows for information to be more easily accepted by the conscious and actualized and helps to raise up our clients as you mention. Raising our vibration also opens us to different levels of consciousness which heightens our awareness, develops intuition, and increases sensory abilities and it is all this that aids all the hypnosis processing to this whole other level of transformation. Good to hear that your Best Self is back from your personal retreat and raring to go [smile]. Be well.

  8. Meredith Locher, MA, CH May 3, 2012 at 8:41 AM

    I love how you expressed all of that so beautifully, Michael, and I agree completely. I also believe that as tuning forks we naturally raise the vibration of those around us which allows them more access to their infinite wisdom and guidance from higher self. Isn’t life just so much fun!? Definitely fun connecting with you!


  9. Dr. Michael G Millett May 3, 2012 at 11:23 PM

    Thank you Meredith. Well, it all boils down to one word really – SYNCHRONICITY ! Here`s to lots more fun through synchronicity in life ! Bright Blessings. ~Michael

    Meredith, Cal and Elronn,
    It is with great pleasure that I am able to watch and learn from your insightful and educational videos.  Meredith, I think this podcast on bringing in Spirituality is spot on!  When I watched it, three words came to mind: More, more, more! I loved it.  You will slay them at the conference.  I hope you tape the conference then share it with us lowly hypnos who weren’t able to go.  Since watching this, I have slowly incorporated it into my sessions as I feel better about touching on what could be a sensitive subject.  It fits in perfectly.  

    I have three more words for all of you: Thank you, Thank you. Thank you. (Ok that was six)

    Please keep up with the informative videos.  Your information is far reaching.


  11. Cal Banyan, MA, BCH, CI, DNGH May 4, 2012 at 8:20 AM

    Hello Susan – Thanks for your very positive comment!

    I’m so glad to hear that you are benefiting from the programs, and that you are so readily using the information.

    Keep in touch and let’s do GREAT things together.


  12. Meredith Locher, MA, CH May 10, 2012 at 10:13 PM

    Hi Susan!

    My pleasure completely. Yes, I do believe they tape the talks at Convention and make them available later, but really wish you could be there! Would love to have the chance to meet you in person.

    So happy you are ready to integrate spirituality into your practice now! People, for the most part, are definitely ready for it and you can’t go wrong when you test the waters first making sure they are even open to it before you go there.

    Keep on changing the world one client at a time. Your work is also far reaching! 🙂


  13. Susan Lawrence May 24, 2012 at 10:38 AM

    Hello Meredith,
    I have been wanting to write back to you for a while now, and  I had to go back and find the video I wanted to write this on.  I want to relay a recent story which occurred after I viewed your podcast on God and Spirituality in the Hypnosis session.  Before hearing this, I would avoid this topic, but after listening to what you had to say, I stopped avoiding it.  One of my clients who experienced a number of rapes in her lifetime began to talk about God and how she is finding him again. Before I would have let this comment go, but now I didn’t.  I asked her what she felt about God.  And she said she didn’t trust him because he let that happen to such a little girl.  She also mentioned that her spirit was stolen.  During timeline hypnosis I asked her to visualize God giving her back her spirit.  WOW!! What she related to me after that was amazing!  She was able to describe God in full color with all of his amazing features and the light he put in her heart.  I was blown away but acted as if it was totally expected and usual. She called me today 2 weeks after I saw her and told me how her life has completely changed, that she smiles now, got a great job, doesn’t steal anymore (God is watching – I programmed that in) and feels like she is on top of the clouds.  Honestly, Meredith, Cal, and Elronn I can’t thank you enough for all of the great knowledge you freely impart to others.

    Thank you,

    Brightest Blessings,
